What's body fascism doing in a nice riot like this?

27-06-2009 23:02

Imagine the following scenario: a reporter from a mainstream magazine goes to a Climate Camp event, and asks for someone to do an interview with. The media team sends a camper to do the interview, and this camper happens to be Asian, or black. The reporter says: "Sorry, our readers prefer to look at pictures of white people. Do you have anyone white we could interview?" How would the Climate Campers react? Hopefully they would tell this reporter to fuck the hell off, at the very least.

27-06-2009 22:20

Communications House and the demo outside

About 50 people gathered today outside Communications House, one of London's two immigration reporting centres and so-called 'short-term holding facilities', to protest against immigration detention and deportation and show solidarity with the Yarl's Wood hunger strikers. Many leaflets were given out and chants of 'No borders, no nations, stop deportations' filled the air of Old Street. One of the hunger strikers addressed the crowd on the phone and speakers, including an ex-Yarl's Wood detainee, delivered moving speeches about the inhumane conditions inside detention centres and migrants' struggles against the government's racist immigration policies.

27-06-2009 19:48

As an act of direct action training, to empower and equip festivalgoers at Glastonbury who have had no previous contact with direct action or groups that actively campaign for a better future in the face of climate chaos, the outrageous plans of expansion to a third runway of Greenpeace International Airport were halted today by a handful of members of the public who formed an affinity group in a short space of time and locked on to prevent the demolition of a locally organised recreation of Sipson village.

Transnational demo for freedom of movement, Calais, Sat 27th June

27-06-2009 11:50

In Calais there are around 800-1000 migrants at any one time that are trying to cross the Channel, under constant harassment from the police.
These migrants are harassed because they do not have the right papers, or in many cases no papers at all – they are 'sans-papier'.
