Anarchist Black Cross on Saturday Night

12-01-2011 19:23

Nottingham Anarchist Black Cross will be providing People's Kitchen this Saturday Night from 6:30pm, and at 7:30 we'll be showing a half film called "Prison World"


Prison World is about the prison society. The capitalist system which is our
modern consumer democracy. Not is it it about repression, but also
reistance. On the 23rd of April, 2007 an intense period of rebelillion
started in Malndrino Priosn of the Greek State. A rage sparked by the
beating of anartchist Giannis Dimitrakis by guards. On the 24th of April
the riot had sporead to the rest of the priosn and shortly there were
rebellions all over the ncountry in the priosners, the mutineers recieved
many acts of lvoe and solidarity outside the cell walls and even abroad in
other countries. This dvd also has infomation about the 'F'- type
isolation units of Turkey and how they were used to attempt to destroy the
left radical social movement.

We'll also have a stall with relevant literature, the addresses of various prisoners, and some postcards on which you can write to them.

Hope to see you there.

12-01-2011 13:11

Since the start of the war in Afghanistan, 24 per cent of British fatalities have been aged 21 or younger. Many of them will have been young men who enlisted as teenagers.

Christian Arabs’ Plight: Foreign ‘Protection’ Counterproductive

12-01-2011 12:31

Unfortunately, this traditional European divide – and – rule policy in the Arab world, as it was the case for centuries, is today finding ample papal blessing from the Vatican to justify itself, not in the eyes of Arabs, but in the eyes of its own audiences. President Sarkozy’s whistle blower cry this January 6 that Christians in the Arab – Islamic world are victims of a planned ‘religious cleansing,” came on the backdrop of the Vatican’s Pope Benedict XVI repeated call on the world leaders to rise up for the protection and “defense of the Christians in the Middle East.”

What shall we do if the cops start protesting?

12-01-2011 11:10

I want to open up a debate, nice and early, about this issue which came out yesterday. It has long been known that the police force will face massive cuts as part of the austerity measures. Yesterday Paul McKeever, the Police Federation chairman, warned MPs that the cops could take to the street in protest over these measures.

Now I wasn't following things the last time this happened (3 years ago in central london over backdated pay), and if I'm honest I don't have a clue how the "activist community" responded. So that's some important feeding in to do.
