More details on Bristol Labour HQ occupation.

20 plus people libertated the Labour Party HQ, Newfoundland Street, Bristol at about 9.30am, today, May Day. The 'liberation' was unfortunatley brief, before imperial forces regained control.

Protesting against New Labours part in the War on Iraq, and it's betrayal of working class voters, activists highlighted the gap between grass roots feeling and an increasingly authoritarian Labour Government.

Security was easily bypassed, one person d-locked herself to a desk. Computers and telephones were unplugged. Papers were 're-filed'. Both the power supply was switched off and the fire alarm was activated.

We now are aware of at least 5 arrests. Apparently one of them has been arrested for burglary.
