WILD GEESE looks at migration from the point of view of the migrants themselves, exploring their hopes, dreams and often harsh realities. The show exposes the great divide between those who build fortunes from the forced migration of the world's peoples and those much vilified refugees, asylum seekers and 'economic migrants' forced to leave homes and loved ones in search of work, refuge and survival.

- "It is so important that people speak up about the issues of racism and of prejudice against refugees and asylum seekers, and I believe your production is a wonderful way of doing just that" (Tony Brett Young, Mayor, London Borough of Sutton)

- "It shocked me to see what Britain and America do to cause so many of the world's problems" (6th former, Swinton High School, Manchester)

- "A superb performance" (Peterborough Racial Equality Council)

Catch this exciting and informative new show at one of the following venues, or see the website,, for an up-to-date tour schedule:

Something maybe beautiful...

12-05-2005 11:37

The rampART is one year old on 21st May...

In 'Fences and Windows' (2001), - Naomi Klein wrote, "Social centres are abandoned buildings - warehouses, factories, military forts, schools - that have been occupied by squatters and transformed into cultural and political hubs, explicitly free from both the market, and from state control... Though it may be hard to tell at first, the social centres aren't ghettos, they are windows — not only into another way to live, disengaged from the state, but also into a new politics of engagement. And yes, it's something maybe beautiful."

New Galloway Revelation!!

12-05-2005 09:43

A new report by the Republican dominated US senate has implicated Respect MP George Galloway in the Oil for food scandal. Also in the frame is a French Minister and the UN.

Of course it's just coincidence that all three were totally opposed to the war? It is also unimportant that the senates info has come from a corrupt former Baathist who is presently being detained indefinately by the US occupiers and is desparate to curry favour with them?

I'm just surprised that they didnt manage to implicate Iran and North Korea as well.

iraq quagmire or Genocide

11-05-2005 22:07

The so-called progressive Neo-liberal media in the US are more closed minded in support of invasion than the the rightwingers who occupied Iraq. That is why not only we don't have anti-war movements but actually there is no credible voice if dissents.Here is one example of a neo-liberal hypocricy. They are using the argument about the Quagmire in Iraq as a sokescreen to cover the genocide in iraq.
