28-07-2007 15:25Happy birthday, Situationist International
28-07-2007 11:08The following call is from the Anarchists Against the Wall email list.
The Israeli anarchists are well known and respected by all Palestinian non-violence leaders. They are the only Israeli group that consistently and regularly turns up at Palestinian demonstrations and one of (very) few anti-Zionist groups in Israel today.
As such, the state is of course persecuting them and they are regularly detained, questioned or even sent to jail. They have a LOT of legal costs. Gaby Lasky is a tireless and committed human rights lawyer who has represented many Palestinian, Israeli and international anti-occupation activists.
Please support them!

They also video and photograph riders at the start of every event. It is odd though that they never turn up for the December ride, which is close to the New year celebrations.
With today's launch of the iPlayer, the BBC Trust has failed in its most basic of duties and handed over to Microsoft sole control of the on-line distribution of BBC programming. From today, you will need to own a Microsoft operating system to view BBC programming on the web.
