A great piece of anti-militarist direct action
Posted by: Roy on Saturday, May 02, 2009 - 09:58 PM
Protest Sheffield students today targeted military recruiters and arms dealers at the University's careers fair, demanding they have a say over who is allowed on campus. The stalls of QinetiQ, Rolls Royce, the Army and the Navy were all dismantled with protesters bagging up materials from the stalls and removing them from campus.

A brief word about the Luton affair (from Peace News)
Posted by: Roy on Monday, April 13, 2009 - 05:44 PM
Protest Since the 7 July 2005 attacks, the great and the good of British society have been urging British Muslims to engage in the usual channels of political action, to vent their anger at British foreign policy without exploding bombs or shooting guns.
Yet when a group of angry Muslims does just that, protesting in the time-honoured way, albeit in an unusual location, the home-coming parade for the 2nd Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment (British soldiers returning from Iraq), they have been vilified.
Those who have condemned the demonstrations so harshly should reflect on the conclusions that disaffected Muslims might draw from this incident.

To date there have been 23 occupations in the UK related to the situation in Gaza.
Posted by: Roy on Sunday, February 22, 2009 - 11:42 AM
Protest there have been 23 occupations in the UK related to the situation in Gaza; one of the latest is St Andrews University. Here is the opening text of their demands:

We, the concerned students and academics of the University of St. Andrews, demand that the university condemns the illegal bombing and land invasion of Gaza and Israel’s indiscriminate targeting of civilians. In particular, as an educational establishment we urge that it shows practical solidarity with the Islamic University of Gaza and other schools and colleges damaged during the bombing.

For the full text click below; for more on their campaign click here,to voice support for the demands email the principal:

Soho: Justice prevails against prejudice and witch-hunts!
Posted by: Roy on Thursday, February 19, 2009 - 05:31 AM
Protest An application by the Metropolitan Police and Westminster Council for a Closure Order against two flats at 61 Dean Street, Soho, was dismissed today. (Excellent report in the Evening Standard below.)

With the help of Soho sex workers and other local people, the English Collective of Prostitutes and Legal Action for Women gathered evidence to show the case against the women of 61 Dean Street was entirely spurious, and prevented them from being evicted from the safety of their flats.

Protest A Ministry of Defence (MoD) byelaw banning camping outside the Atomic Weapons Establishment Aldermaston was quashed by the court of appeal today. The case, heard on 26th November 2008, was an appeal in the Judicial Review of the Secretary of State for Defence's decision to introduce byelaws which would have criminalised camping as a form of peaceful protest.

Protest World leaders launch 'Global Zero' initiative for nuke-free world - Poll shows 81% support ban

The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament welcomed the ‘Global Zero’ initiative of 100 international political, military, business, and civic leaders, which today launched a campaign for the abolition of nuclear weapons worldwide through multilateral negotiations. The leaders, which include former Foreign Secretaries Margaret Beckett, Malcolm Rifkind, Douglas Hurd and David Owen, Richard Branson, former President Jimmy Carter and Mikhail Gorbachev, want a binding agreement to eliminate all nuclear weapons through phased and verified reductions.

Gobsmacked: British use of Japanese troops in Vietnam 1945 and humanity at risk 1997
Posted by: Roy on Thursday, October 09, 2008 - 09:44 PM
I expect anything of Governments, I didn’t trust John F Kennedy or expect anything from Labour in ’97. Wilson’s Labour Government sowed my mistrust when it brought in a Commonwealth Immigrants Act that was even more draconian that the one proposed by the Tories, just to win an election (how little changes).
However two items from history I’ve just heard about have left even me rather gobsmacked.
The first, part of Britain’s secret shameful history, was the subject of a pamphlet by Phil Kaiserman, a British soldier who was sent to Vietnam in October 1945, the second NASA’s ‘Final Environmental Impact Statement for the Cassini Mission’. They show how cynical and cavalier governments and government agencies can be. Click below to read on…

Open Letter by President Evo Morales of Boliva - The True Role of Immigrants
Posted by: Roy on Tuesday, June 17, 2008 - 06:57 PM
Protest The True Role of Immigrants

Open letter from President Evo Morales re the EU “return directive”

Up to the end of the Second World War, Europe was a continent of emigrants. Thousands of Europeans left for the Americas to colonize, escape from hunger, financial crisis, war, totalitarian governments and the persecution of ethnic minorities.

Today, I am following with concern the process of the “return directive”. The text, agreed on 5 June by the Interior Ministers of 27 countries of the European Union, has to be voted on in the European Parliament on June 18th. I feel that it drastically worsens the conditions of detention and deportation for undocumented immigrants, regardless of how long they have spent in a EU country, their work situation, their family ties, how much they want to and have been able to integrate.
