25-03-2011 14:53THE CASE AGAINST INTERVENTION...
25-03-2011 14:12Back after an absence of nearly 10 years, the latest edition of the Eenee Stannit can be found here
25-03-2011 12:36As we edge closer to the TUC demonstration this Saturday the internet, airwaves and blogosphere are becoming increasingly excited about what might happen. However, as is to be expected, much of this is already focusing on the usual themes of police fairness/repression, the likelihood of violence etc. This article seeks to reaffirm the real successes of the previous few months – an openness to change, a new found humility and greater social resonance – by calling for an intervention which focuses on moving towards uncertainty rather than falling back on tired, clichéd direct action strategies.

25-03-2011 12:04About public debt,budget deficit and the General Strike on Saturday
Friday, 25 March 2011
The London Guantánamo Campaign  is concerned about the involvement in the upcoming UK-wide Census of two private companies that were contracted to carry out coercive prisoner interrogations at the notorious US military detention facilities at Guantánamo Bay and Abu Ghraib, Iraq. 
Ok, so on Saturday we overthrow the government and march cheering into the sunset as David Cameron and George Osbourne jump on a plane to Saudi with a suitcases of stolen cash and the silverware from downing street.
On Sunday we then celebrate in Stockwell with an evening of political song from two musicians who need no introduction:
Stop UCL victimizing its students!
Defend freedom of expression on campus!
On 21st March UCL students occupied the Registry wing in support of striking lecturers. UCL Management, refusing to negotiate with the occupiers to resolve the matter, have now chosen to victimize 10 UCL students, 1 member of staff, a journalist recent alumnus, and a sympathetic student from Birkbeck by taking them to court. They may face huge legal fees and hefty punishments.
Two of the 13 were barely connected with the occupation. One is a staff member fulfilling their official trade union duty to liaise with student campaigns. The student union, UCLU, has voted in a mass general meeting that occupation is a legitimate form of protest against management's fees and cuts.
What is clear is that UCL management are cynically attempting to remove those who question their authority on campus and intimidate others into silence.
UCL Management were given ample opportunity to negotiate with the occupation. It was repeatedly made clear to them that if they promised not to victimize occupiers, the Registry would promptly be vacated. Instead they chose to escalate their threats to protesters instead of quickly reopening the registry, and to take 13 people to court.
This must stop! Defend the UCL 13
Because of a fear of violence, helicopters circled over the summit site, hundreds of police patrolled throughout the capital, and heavy equipment, including water cannons, was stationed close to EU headquarters. Demonstrators armed with sticks and other protesters throwing stones confronted police cordons but could not break through.
