Law Lords Rule Against 'Fairford 5' and 'Marchwood 14'

02-04-2006 15:46

People have been asking me what happened with the appeal of the ‘Fairford Five’ and the Greenpeace activists in the House of Lords.

April 8th Noborders Demo: Get on the bus to Harmondsworth from Birmingham

02-04-2006 09:14

Before opening the Ads-hell screen with an allen key
This Easter marks a global call to action and communication against the Border Regime, refugee detention and destitution. London Noborders has called for a demo at Harmondsworth Detention centre near Heathrow airport on Saturday 8th April. Noborders are calling for a loud and noisy demonstration outside Harmondsworth detention centre, in the hope that those inside will hear our voices and know that they are not alone. Noborders are also calling for as many people as possible to visit detainees inside Harmondsworth after the demonstration to communicate with them directly, hear their stories, and see the conditions inside these detention centres for ourselves.

Birmingham Noborders has arranged transport from Birmingham to Harmondsworth and back. Tickets for the coach to Harmondsworth are going quickly so please get in touch with Birmingham Noborders if you'd like to come to the protest and join the Birmingham Noborders mailing list if you'd like to get more involved.

More Sensitivity and Less Prejudice

01-04-2006 18:33

Since journalists influence the political and social climate in the subject of migration, they should show more sensitivity toward racist exclusion.. Integration is not a one-way street but can only succeed when we create the prerequisites and grant minorities equal rights and equal social opportunities.

Crowds gather on the steps of the Metropolitan Cathedral

An amazing 2000 people turned out to let Condoleeza Rice, Jack Straw et al know that Liverpudlians don't want to be nice & hospitable to a high-ranking representative of an imperialist aggressor, responsible for the needless tragic deaths of a hundred thousand Iraqis, two thousand-plus of their own soldiers, and hundreds of British soldiers. Not to mention the continued detention without trial of British men, along with hundreds of others, in Guantanamo Bay, and the deliberate rendition of prisoners for torture in countries with terrible human rights records.

There was a huge amount of energy, good humour and determination in the crowd. Banners made every possible word play on Beatles references and 'Rice'. A sound system blasted out "Give Peace a Chance", Steve Earle "The Revolution Starts Now" and the Star Wars theme. Even after Ms Rice entered, many of the crowd stayed around, and were even joined by latecomers.
