During the Saturday lunch time rush hours from 12:00 to 14:00, a group of activists spearheaded by Derby Animal Rights demo-ed the busy St. Peters street branch of McDonald's, in protest at the unethical business practices of the fast food giant.

During the Saturday lunch time rush hours from 12:00 to 14:00, a group of activists spearheaded by Derby Animal Rights demo-ed the busy St. Peters street branch of McDonald's, in protest at the unethical business practices of the fast food giant.

October the 16th is officially the International Day of Action Against McDonald's, originally launched by London Greenpeace back in 1985 and now attracting support from across the spectrum of positive movements, from animal rights to worker's rights, from anti climate change to anti-capitalism.

McDonald's symbolises everything that is wrong with the corporate mentality: like all multinationals it is only interested in making profits from whoever and whatever it can. As a result of the famous McLibel trial, it was agreed in a court of law that McDonald's:

* exploits children with its advertising - luring them with the promise of a toy,
* falsely advertises its food as nutritious, but in reality most of it is processed junk food high in fat, sugar and salt,
* risk the health of its long-term regular customers, as a diet of this type is linked with a greater risk of heart disease, obesity, cancer and diabetes,
* is culpably responsible for cruelty to animals reared for its products,
* is strongly antipathetic to unions and pay its workers low wages.

Cuts Cafe: We remember the Rotunda!

14-10-2012 23:16

Great to see the Cuts Cafe has occupied the building on the corner of Stamford Street and Blackfriars Road… And not just because we’ve passed that building regularly for years and thought it should be squatted… but also because they’re reviving a powerful radical connection on that corner…

BBC Cesspit – Its not just about Savile

14-10-2012 22:35

This campaign has consistently stated that the BBC’s interest in Hollie’s abuse and Anne had been managed, manipulated and spiked. In the light of the Jimmy Savile revelations of sexual abuse over a 40-year period and the cover-up by the BBC, we would like to point out a few similarities in the cover-up.

Despite Cuts Government Spending Increases

14-10-2012 21:27

The government’s austerity measures were described by the Financial Times as “the most drastic cuts in living memory...” The chancellor’s 2011 budget admits that estimates suggest the UK to be the most indebted nation on the planet. Four years on from the financial crisis not much has changed. Spending hasn’t decreased, it has increased.

“Throw out the money changers from the temple”

14-10-2012 21:18

On the eve of the anniversary of the beginninng of the Occupy London Stock Exchange camp by St Paul’s Cathedral, supporters of Occupy London, in collaboration with Christianity Uncut, today staged a dramatic intervention to highlight their call for the leadership of St Paul’s Cathedral to stop sitting on the fence and join the fight against rising inequality in the UK and beyond.

While Christianity Uncut unfurled a 5m x 10m banner outside the Cathedral urging the leadership of St Paul’s to “Throw out the money changers from the temple”, four Occupy activists staged a mic check during Evensong. [1] They are now locked on to the Cathedral pulpit not planning to leave.

Call out for Submissions: Post-Prison Zine

14-10-2012 19:39

We live in a Prison Society. Last year Her Majesty’s Prison Service incarcerated over 87,000 people in England & Wales alone (not including Scotland and Northern Ireland). Prison has long been used as a tool of oppression against anybody who does not fit in to society’s idea of a “good citizen”. The aim of Prison is to silence those people trapped within it’s walls, they seek to lock them up and throw away the key, effectively removing them from society. Not all Prison sentences are permanent though any many people will eventually return to the outside world.
