31-01-2009 19:24Hundreds walk out of their workplace. On the second day the strike spreads, pulling up to a thousand workers out on secondary action across sites in Northern England and Scotland - much of it illegal under the anti-trade union laws Labour has, to its eternal shame, left on the statute books. In short, an outbreak of the very 'spontaneous' actions of our class that would normally excite the left in this country.

31-01-2009 15:17A crisis meeting on the future of Waterford Crystal takes place in Dublin today as 100 angry workers continue to occupy the plant. The firm's receiver David Carson said that 480 of the 670 employees at the famous crystal maker in Kilbarry outside Waterford city have been made redundant.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I was under the impression that a people under siege by an illegal occupier are entitled in international law to take up arms against their oppressor.

You have to wonder exactly what what their plan was? There are literally dozens of venues all around London that are owned by sympathisers of ethnic cleansing in Palestine. So why (oh why??) did they they pick one that was about 100 yards from a venue where the swappies were having a Palestine rally and SOAS was just a few hundred yards away?!?
Whatever their 'plan' they certainly didn't discuss it with the local plods in advance....
31-01-2009 00:17Obama has yet to make any commitment to dismantle the key components of George Bush's attack on human rights
Scottish-based human rights group Scotland Against Criminalising Communities and the Scotland Stop the War Coalition are giving a cautious welcome to orders signed by President Obama today to close Guantánamo Bay and to put an end to some of the harshest interrogation techniques. But we are dismayed that Obama has so far made no commitment to permanently abandon trial by the notorious Military Commissions and that his comments during the signing ceremony indicate that some Guantanamo prisoners may continue to be held indefinitely without trial. We think Obama could do better. He needs to be a great deal firmer in dealing with the legacy that George Bush has left him.
