Safety First Coalition for womens' safety
Posted by: Roy on Wednesday, December 05, 2007 - 11:55 AM
Protest What is so shocking about adverts for escorts in local papers? Why does Harriet Harman want to clamp down on the safer ways women have found to work? Following the tragic Ipswich murders, we called together a Safety First Coalition of nurses, doctors, church people, probation officers, anti-poverty campaigners, sex workers and others, to ensure that women are not repeatedly placed in danger. We believe that there can be no protection while sex workers are being hounded, and campaign for prostitution to be decriminalised and for proper economic alternatives for women who want to get out of prostitution. Whatever people may think about sex work, women’s safety must be the priority.

Rid Scotland of nuclear weapons
Posted by: Roy on Monday, November 19, 2007 - 10:00 PM
Protest Alex Salmond has made a major bid to win international backing for his government's campaign to rid Scotland of nuclear weapons, the Sunday Herald revealed.
The First Minister has written to over 180 countries highlighting the nation's opposition to the deployment of Trident nuclear warheads on the Clyde, and his determination to try and block the UK government's decision to replace Trident over the next few decades.

Protest Dear friends,
I have won Indefinite Leave to Remain for myself and my three year old daughter! I was at the Crossroads Women’s Centre, where I volunteer, when my lawyer called. My heart sank. Usually my lawyer has nothing but bad news for me. When he told me I had won I couldn’t believe my ears. I thought he must be speaking about another person. I couldn’t sleep at all that night. I stared at the ceiling with my daughter lying beside me.

one to think seriously about
Posted by: Roy on Monday, November 12, 2007 - 09:59 AM
Protest Presumably people protest against nuclear weapons because they have the potential not only to kill vast numbers of people but also animals and the environment.
Cars are the same except that their threat is realised daily. Not only do cars kill vast numbers of people and animals (100,000 foxes p.a. in the UK for example), but they poison the environment, and contribute hugely to global warming.
So obviously people who care about the environment (like anti nuclear protesters) don't drive cars, because it’s much simpler to address one's own polluting habits than to persuade the Government to stop its nuclear disgracefulness.
Well I assume that’s true. Is it?
If it’s not & you who read this are anti-nuclear and still drive a car then give it up now. No need to hold debates. No need to discuss targets for reduction. Just give it up.
Walking and Cycling are decent ways to get about.
"It didn't take a war to fuel this bike"
The alternative for individual transport to walking and cycling is the car. Drivers' demand for petrol and biofuel is causing untold misery and death worldwide.

and one from Cuba Sí
Posted by: Roy on Wednesday, November 07, 2007 - 08:33 PM
Protest On 9 October 1967 the US government ordered the assassination of Che Guevera.
Che had been wounded and captured the day before by US trained Bolivian soldiers. Following discussions between the CIA and the Bolivian military junta in La Paz, Che was executed.
A Bolivian Sergeant, Mario Terán, carried out the task. After his death, Che Guevera’s body was flown to Vallegrande to be photographed in the laundry house of the town’s small hospital. Sergeant Terán spent the following decades hiding in fear of realiation. He developed cataracts in both eyes and became virtually blind.
Today the same hospital in Vallegrande serves as a base for some 20 Cuban doctors who provide free medical assistance to the local population uder Cuba’s programme of medical assistance to Bolivia. Amazingly the same man who killed Che, Sergeant Mario Terán, has had his sight restored by Cuban ophthalmic surgeon’s working in La Paz as part of the sight-saving programme ‘Operacíon Miraglo’ – CUBA SÍ, MAGAZINE OF THE CUBA SOLIDARITY CAMPAIGN

Two stories reported in CAAT News
Posted by: Roy on Wednesday, November 07, 2007 - 08:31 PM
Protest An engineering student has donated money he was awarded as a prize by BAE Systems to CAAT [Campaign Against the Arms Trade]. The student at Loughborough University was awarded the prize for being the “most improved student”, but he was also a most concerned student about the millions accepted from BAE by his university. He said: “The influence of BAE over the course was pretty heavy, the steering committee was BAE dominated, the studies were often BAE oriented. Engineers can do a lot more with their skills than just help the arms trade”. – PRIVATE EYE, 14/9/07

The owner of a hardware company has admitted to defrauding the Pentagon out of more than $20m, in one case charging almost £1m for shipping two washers costing 19 cents. Over nearly 10 years the firm exploited an automatic shipping payment system designed to speed up shipments to US forces overseas. – GUARDIAN UNLIMITED 17/8/07

Support the right to demonstrate
Posted by: Roy on Wednesday, October 03, 2007 - 09:21 PM
Protest Stop the War President Tony Benn has delivered a letter to the
Home Secretary Jacqui Smith to make clear why our Troops Out
demonstration at Parliament on Monday 8 October will take place,
despite the ban by the government and police. It is essential
that the voice of the antiwar majority in this country is present
at Parliament when Gordon Brown makes his long awaited statement
on Iraq.

That is why we are asking every anti war activist to sign the
letter protesting against the ban, to join the demonstration on
October 8 and to do everything possible to publicise the protest.

Rough Stuff at the DSEi Arms Fair
Posted by: Roy on Monday, September 17, 2007 - 02:12 PM
Protest Please support pacifist Gwyn Gwyntopher:
Pacifist Gwyn Gwyntopher, (66) was standing at Custom House DLR, by the Excel Centre, where the DSEi arms fair was going on, about 1.30pm Thursday 13/9/07. Her back was visible to arms traders waiting to go and sell more means of killing people. The poster on her back said. "Remember the victims of the arms trade." She was arrested by Transport Police and handcuffed. She was then dragged along the ground to the lift. In considerable pain she appealed to the police to take the handcuffs off. They declined. When her husband Chris Gwyntopher came up the stairs to find out what had happened to her she appealed to him to get the police to remove the handcuffs. He tried to persuade the officers to do so, pointing out that she would not harm anybody and would not seek to run away. They refused and pulled him away from her.
