On Dissident Island's third birthday the crew are bringing a nice mixed bag of happenings from the UK and beyond. We'll hear some of the inspirational and defiant speeches from last week's vigil for Ian Tomlinson, as well as a little bit about the upcoming anniversary of Sean Rigg's death in police custody.

In this History corner this week we have Martyn Everett discussing the life and work of revolutionary Frechwoman Louise Michel. From the other side of the world we'll have thoughts on polyamory provided by our Melbourne correspondent.

Finishing off the talking we have an exclusive follow up with members of the Belgrade 6, listen in to find out what happened next.

Ronin will be rolling up to the studio at around 10 to help us celebrate our birthday in style, help us raise a toast to three years of radical radio!
