Space Hijackers Mayday Election Battle Bus

04-05-2010 23:01

Spoil Your Ballot

This Mayday on the Space Hijackers took our anti-election battle bus to the streets of London and the home of government. We've all seen George Galloway and the other cronies charging around in open top buses trying to persuade people to vote for them, but we all know the whole thing is a scam. So we hired our own open top bus, and flew around London giving out an alternate message - SPOIL YOUR BALLOT, REJECT THE LOT OF EM!

their press statement is as follows:

Statement From The Democracy Village, Parliament Square

We, the concerned citizens of the Democracy Village on Parliament Square, demand on behalf of the majority of people that the war in Afghanistan is ended and the troops are brought home with immediate effect.

The Democracy Village calls all like-minded concerned citizens to come and join us. We are calling a Strike for Peace until our demands are met. We are committed to maintaining an ongoing presence on Parliament Square.

All are welcome to come and stay for a few hours, a day, or a night.
Donations of food and equipment are very welcome. Bring a sleeping bag and tent if you plan to stay.

In this election, no major party has offered the choice to end this pointless war.
VOTE FOR PEACE by coming to the village today.

The streets of East London turn green and gold!

04-05-2010 22:06

Over 30 merry men and women could be spotted running around the streets of East London last Sunday, spreading the word about the Robin Hood Tax campaign.

Over 30 merry men and women could be spotted running around the streets of East London last Sunday, spreading the word about the Robin Hood Tax campaign.

This gaggle of outlaws were taking part in Oxfam's Robin Hood Tax game, part of the campaign which calls for a tiny tax on banks to raise billions for poverty in the UK and abroad.

Seven groups of bandits could be seen taking on challenges including swapping their goods for gold (well, a Robin Hood hat for some gold shoes!), composing and reciting Robin Hood Raps and much more, all in the name of raising public awareness and support. The event was a resounding success and the public responded very positively to the idea.

Campaigner Katy Wright said: "It was great fun taking part in the challenges which encouraged us to chat to people about the campaign and get them on board. At the end of the hunt I felt we had really raised awareness and enthusiasm for the Robin Hood Tax on the streets of East London as well as having a merry time!"

A big thank you to everyone who took part and to the team at the Rich Mix who let us set up HQ there for the day.
