SOS Your Help is Needed: Edgbaston Reservoir Development

19-03-2006 16:53

SOS… Your help is urgently needed!! Edgbaston Reservoir is an oasis of nature in a fast moving city, enjoyed by all the people of Birmingham. It’s used for sailing, surfing, rowing, running, local school sports, and as an area of relaxation and recreation for all who need to escape inner city life. A deal has been 'cut' with a private developer to allow them to build two four storey high blocks of flats on the banks of this site. Local residents were lied to by the Council about dates for objections to be raised, The Planning Committee also voted not to view the site before granting permission for 90 homes..? The circumstances surrounding the 'deal' are interesting. The Land is currently leased to the developer!! The more houses they are allowed to build, the more profits for them. That is obvious. However what isn’t so obvious is that Birmingham City Council intend to sell the land to the developer at a later date. Clearly, because they have planning for so many flats. The developer is willing to pay more to Birmingham City Council. Please read the information below... I hope that you will support the fight against this. Whatever that involves! The existing building is now empty!! It’s a great site and you would have the support of local residents!! Please contact me at

That it should come to this … fear and loathing on the swp march

19-03-2006 13:04

should’ve known, I really should. I mean when it comes to cynical, piss taking of this merry band of useless marching muppets I’m the worst offender… but somehow, well the glorious events taking place in France, the line of mounted riot cops I saw leaving Islington nick on my way there, well it got my blood running, got my hopes up that this day would be more than the usual impotent trot through London, that perhaps, just perhaps this would be the day that something might happen.

International Criminal Court: murder is murder, or?

19-03-2006 07:56

Photographs of the funeral showed men crying as five children, who all looked under the age of five, were wrapped in blankets and then lined up in a row. One man who described himself as a relative said one was just seven months old: "They killed these innocent children. Are these considered terrorists? Is a seven-month-old child a terrorist?".

Tony Blair Too Afraid to Come to Brum

18-03-2006 23:17

About 100 protesters gathered in front of Mathew Boulton College on 16 March, 2006, to give Tony Blair a warm welcome. The Prime Minister was meant to visit the recently built College in Birmingham for its official opening. The visit, however, was cancelled at the last minute and the PM did not show up, presumably to avoid the embarrassment he had experienced at Nottingham University earlier this year. Or perhaps he was too shy to appear in public after the embarrassing education vote earlier this week. Apart from the college's few security guards, there was very little police presence: only one van!

Around 14 arrests reported. 12 protestors and 4 police injured. Later reports speak of 50+ arrests though this is unclear if it's Paris or a national total for today.
