27-01-2011 11:21The Guardian have run a story, based on a spiegel.de article, http://www.spiegel.de/politik/deutschland/0,1518,741826,00.html (which credits indymedia.org.uk for it's photo!) which "Kennedy's involvement in criminal activity during his time in Germany highlights concerns that he was working as an agent provocateur and not just an observer of the activists." An extract of the article in the Guardian follows.

26-01-2011 23:16CARDIFF RALLY AGAINST THE CUTS
Thursday 3rd February at 7 pm
Transport House, Cathedral Road, Cardiff, CF11 9SB
In the media’s coverage of climate change, are we really still stuck on square one of some ghastly board game?
26-01-2011 22:42It can always become worse. In 2009 5 members of the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) are tried to 15 - 65 years of detention in the Wild West. Why? For donating emergency (medical-food) goods and supplying money to the refugees of the Gaza-strip! In 2001 the Bush administration shut the foundation down, although no direct links have been found with Hamas. Guilty by association. Israël and the FBI were folowing HLF from 1993 onwards and harrassing the members of HLF.
26-01-2011 21:30A short recap as to what its all about-a reminder of how much the tory scum are laughing at us, and why we should carry on being FU*!ING ANGRY.
26-01-2011 21:02A leading figure in the Wales BNP has been convicted in court for assault! No surprise there then.
Did you read that article on SchNEWS and some IMC sites, pertaining that cops post on Indymedia UK? Wow, that is a big story, isn't it? Not surprising, really, any sensible person had been assuming that this is the case. But actually proving that cops have posted confidential information and have been acting as agent provocateurs on Indymedia UK? That is one hell of a story! Especially coinciding with the current revelations about the doings and screwings of undercover cops, embedded amongst dangerous activist outfits such as CIRCA.
Anyway, sadly it is just that: a story. Taking a closer look at the story, one thing is missing: there isn't any factual evidence.
26-01-2011 18:50"The Palestine Papers reveal that Fatah was obsessed with maintaining political supremacy over Hamas, with Israel’s cooperation, especially following the 2006 electoral victory of the Islamist movement. Documents obtained by Al Jazeera also show the extent to which the Palestinian Authority cracked down on Hamas institutions to weaken the group and strengthen its own relationship with Israel."
There's a new forum started up for radical health care workers.
Why do we feel there's a need for a project like this?
Because there are plenty of radicals within the health care system, but within such a huge sector we are often isolated and left to navigate the complexities of health care by ourselves, instead of as part of a radical community.Because working in health care involves elements such as dignity, health, compassion, inequality, power, addiction, oppression that resonate with the wider struggle.Because health care, and the NHS in particular, looks very different from the inside. There needs to be a space to constructively criticise mainstream health care without being forced into a simplistic defensive position or reactionary alternative.Because the UK has both a massive economic deficit and a new government that is ideologically opposed to universal health care, and for all the election pledges to not cut NHS spending, the years ahead hold cutbacks, restructuring and privatisation.Because even before the restructuring by a new government, the NHS is in crisis. Many of us work in trusts deemed to be "failing," with little sign of things getting better.Because as workers we often find ourselves expected to work ever harder; with inadequate equipment, poor management and unsatisfactory support.Because we find ourselves ignorant of radical health care histories - of hospital occupations and strikes. With greater discussion and sharing of ideas, we can educate ourselves and learn from the past.
You win a Crisis Loan, just pop down to the DSS to claim it and say we sent you.*
