Greater Manchester Police arresting Barton Moss Protectors for Aggravated Trespass on Public Footpath?
I got up to site to see the GMP up there, threatening my tribe.
Graham was on top of the lorry, bless him, and happy, but they then began to move the tanker with him on top of it. It was pouring[…]

Shelling out for NERC? Comments from a couple of the Economics WG members.
From Clive Menzies.
It’s not an area I’ve researched in depth but Shell has a pretty appalling environmental track record.

Press Release: Barton Moss 14/02/2014. How many coppers does it take to arrest a hippy?

Trucks kept out for two days now. But where’s the media? If the media won’t pick up the story, has anyone any ideas how we can get the news to the stockmarket? Already behind schedule, the drill rig will be costing iGas somewhere in the region of £20,000 per day, and their total daily operating[…]

London Fashion Week, by Laura Elizabeth Parkes

An argument for the population renewing their commitment towards a shared vision of what we create.

Contained in capitalist culture is the rags to riches story, it subdues criticism and fetishises a manmade value system, “perceived” value. It is easy to observe where this value has been corrupted and does not reflect the value of[…]

Lambeth Town Hall: Protest the Police, by Kris O’Donnell

I just left a sham of a Q&A, held by Met Police and Mayor of London office – in Brixton. 75% was propaganda, not Q&A.

An academic, activist and devoted mother, Andria tells about the ‘addicted survivors of the global war on drugs as part of the global war on the poor’
