Urgent Call for Support - Anarchists Against the Wall

28-07-2007 11:08

The 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!

ISM London member

Another London Critical Mass police hassle.

28-07-2007 07:14

Police routinely interfere with Critical Mass, holding up the front of the ride, targeting sound systems and sometimes ticketing riders. 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.

Cove Brook floods

flooded golf course winter 2001/2002
The recent flooding of properties alongside Cove Brook was inexcusable and avoidable. That they did flood was thanks to the arrogance of the ruling cabal at the Rotten Borough of Rushmoor.
