16-07-2008 09:59Oxford Climate Action activists have today
blockaded the headquarters of Edelman PR. They arrived at 9:30 to
protest the PR giant's collusion with E-On in "greenwashing" its
proposed Kingsnorth power station development. Several protestors
gained access to the firms offices. Others outside climbed onto the
roof to unfurl a banner reading "Edelman: Spinning The Climate Out
Of Control" as another colourful contingent spoke to
passers by about the protest. MP John MC Donnell has also dropped by to lend his support.
16-07-2008 08:08After having done a deal with Ken Livingstone, which involved selling out the East End over Crossrail in true SWP style, George Galloway has been attending the Commons plugging his reputation as a man who cares about the middle East. The man's latest concern is Pakistan while the poor and oppressed in East End continue to suffer at the hands of Tower Hamlets Council and the Respect clique which has joined forces with disreputable contingencies in the Labour, Liberal Democrat and increasingly Conservative Party. In short, George Galloway and his supporters are a fraud. Look at his record

15-07-2008 12:07Just 30 minutes ago a Willesden County Court judge ordered Hank Roberts and all those with him to leave the Wembley Park Sports Ground immediately, take all tents and belongings and be removed by 6pm tonight, an impossible injunction if you've seen the photos, or face further prosecution and even jail. Resistance and support is needed now. SMASH SCHOOL PRIVATISATION!
