The bugle has sounded. The city in daytime drowns in the drone of bankers and shoppers... as dusk descends the streets will come alive, laughing as the flags wave high.

For 90 minutes we'll tear through the city centre, flag on our minds.

The lines have been drawn. Recruit, cajole and press-gang everyone you can. Rules and a map of the playing field coming soon.

Has Obama Given Up?

23-01-2010 13:57

"Expectations were too high". "We overestimated our ability". Time magazine’s interview with the President made for grim reading, unless you’re Israeli. Obama’s claim that "divisions within their societies" made "meaningful conversation...very hard" can be taken as a significant climb-down from the bold stance taken in Cairo.

Theory into Practice? Shift Magazine no. 8

22-01-2010 16:05

Issue 8 of Shift Magazine is available now. It should be in radical bookshops and social centres soon, or can be ordered from the website.
