02-11-2010 09:22

An incredibly inspiring interview at the 28th Anarchist Bookfair in London with American activist, political theorist, and writer, Michael Albert on his ideas of Participatory Economics, 'Parecon', which uses participatory decision making as an economic mechanism to guide the production, consumption and allocation of resources in a given society. Here he touches on his ideas, and how they are slowly gaining wider interest, how it is being used in for example, Venezuala, and how it could change society itself by completely flipping the current economic standard on its head.

Prisoner support letter-writing night

02-11-2010 01:22

they're inside for us, we're outside for them
Bristol ABC prisoner support group returns this month to Kebele social centre for November's public letters to prisoners night.
From 7 to 9pm at 14 Robertson Rd, Bristol BS5 6JY. Hot drinks available, bring snacks to share please.
Once again we will have lists of prisoners here and abroad who welcome support. We will provide paper, cards and envelopes. We ask you to provide the letter writing muscle, along with donations for stamps if you can. This is an informal event with lots of time for questions and discussion about what we do and why. To find out more in advance have a look at our blog and especially the article Why Prisoner Support at

This month some of the prisoners we think need additional support include the recently sentenced animal rights prisoners known as the SHAC6. Then there is Jock Palfreeman in Bulgaria who has another day in court for his appeal in mid-November. Plus over in Greece a number of political prisoners are on hungerstrike over their mistreatment, whilst others face important trials over the coming months. Lastly there is the case of Lynne Stewart in the USA, a radical human rights lawayer sentenced for allegedly helping terrorists, whose sentence has recently been increased from 2 to 10 years. Lynne is a 71 year old cancer sufferer and needs support. See
