Who gives a **** about Swindon Town Centre?

19-09-2004 19:21

"Who gives a [tick] about Swindon Town Centre?" - Swindon Civic Trust's stall
On Saturday the 18th September 2004, two very different ideas were being presented to the public in the Brunel centre in Swindon. One concerned the town centre, and the other concerned the land at the south-eastern edge of Swindon, known as Coate. One was being promoted by employees of a local planning company, the other by volunteers for a local charity.

Although these two stalls may have appeared unrelated to the casual observer, they were in fact inextricably linked, by the University of Bath and by issues of town planning, development and accountability to the public.

"Official" number of U.S. GI's killef in Iraq is now 1032. Some knowledgeable sources believe that figure could be 3 to 4 times higher in reality ( At any rate these reports are varified ( and startling in their own right.

What do you think this note on the South Carolina guard indicates?

"09/19/04 WaPo: Strains Felt By Guard Unit on Eve Of War Duty
The 635 soldiers of a battalion of the South Carolina National Guard scheduled to depart Sunday for a year or more in Iraq have spent their off-duty hours under a disciplinary lockdown in their barracks for the past two weeks."

M&S pickets remember Sabra and Shatilla

The national campaign to boycott Marks and Spencer because of their continuing and extensive support for Israel both financially and ideologically stands firm in the face of threats from the state and fascists. Victory to the Intifada’s solidarity with the Palestinian people will not be weakened by Zionist attack; in fact the campaign goes from strength to strength with more pickets starting in new areas. Join this movement to isolate Britain’s biggest corporate sponsor of Israel; contact the address below to find out what you can do in your area.

The Daily Poetry Movement

The fine was levied. But such a fine can not undo the actions taken, can not end the misery, can not prevent the US having paid over $1.5 million dollars a day for the massacres. I worked hard, I barely paid my bills, everywhere I went they took extra, a percentage for their corporations to kill, and my water turned off. upRising!

Social Collapse through Privatization

18-09-2004 17:48

"A view of the person underlying the reforms should be opposed by the peace movement: the person as an isolated being competing unscrupulously for better living conditions in a state that sees its task more in establishing peace from above through pressure and power than in solidarian equalization of unjust conditions.. Peace groups should be engaged for jobs and against social cuts.."
