'The Ant': twice attacked by Tony's police 'brutality' state in 2 days

31-03-2007 19:48

Recieved a news update from Jago in the form of an email... thought I'd share.

Apparently Babs and Brian went to court on Friday to ask a few questions of DJ Purdy anregarding requesting the return of Brian's illegally seized display of evidence of genocide and torture that was stolen without the benefit of a warrant. Oops!

Apparently this is what started the payback of that naughty DJ Evans issuing all those summonses to incorrect addresses and the fiasco that was was Monday morning kangaroo court, which escalated into Thursday afternoon contempt trials.

Bullies always need to pick on someone to make themselves fel big... how pathetic.

'Save Coventry Mail Centre' March and Rally

31-03-2007 15:04

assembly point
A march and rally, organised by the Communication Workers Union (CWU), were held in Coventry city centre today to protest against the planned closure of Coventry's postal sorting office. The Royal Mail management are proposing to combine Coventry's and Northampton's sorting offices at a new site near Milton Keynes (Ml corridor), causing over 500 staff in Coventry to be made redundant. Northampton's sorting office had burned down in 2003 and staff are working from temporary accommodation.

According to Des Arthur from the Coventry Mail Centre Campaign, the Royal Mail management had admitted that the closure had nothing to do with the levels of efficiency and productivity at Coventry, which were excellent. Further, the proposed closure of Coventry, Gloucester and Beading sorting offices were in breach of the National Agreement and no immediate opportunity had been given to the UCW to offer a case for keeping them open.

The UCW has now drawn up a 26-page plan for keeping the Coventry office open and has collected more than 60,000 signatures on its petition. The union has vowed to ballot for industrial action if the management opts for compulsory redundancies.
