Reclaim the Power!

Energy is not a luxury, it is a basic human need: it is required for cooking food, as well as for heating homes in a cold climate such as ours – and yet it is being put beyond the reach of increasing numbers of ordinary people in our society.
We have known for some time,[…]

of State and corporate power.” Benito Mussolini

When ‘No’ Is Not Enough

= News =

We were wrong in our last newsletter to dismiss Cyprus as just another bailout. This was the bailout/bail-in that revealed lawmakers’ cavalier attitude towards the law. The bailout that didn’t know whether to call itself a tool of “exceptional” circumstances or a future template, so opted for doing both. The bailout that[…]

Rebalancing Austerity – a modest alternative budget 2013 – from Occupy Birmingham

We can’t do everything in one budget, but we can make a start. This is a start, by scrapping the austerity agenda, and starting a programme to reinvest in people and begin to reduce the criminal inequality that successive administrations have enabled. Some of these suggestions have been made by unions, campaigners, some by us.[…]
