06-12-2012 13:22Yesterday activists from the evicted forest occupation gathered for the 4th time in front of the police station to reclaim their stuff which was left in the forest during the eviction.
They destroyed all of this because in their view it was „rubbish“. While the police is saying that they have to save the private property of RWE (the energy company that owns the forest), they give a damn about other property like ours. We need this stuff for the cold winter time and sure they knew this. This is another example for the obiediance of the police to RWE. They ensure the profits of a greedy few against the needs of most of the people which is land, warm clothes, sleeping-bags in winter and a planet to live on. RWE is destroying all of this.
Everywhere to the deportation and detention centers!

05-12-2012 18:44Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has definitely crossed an international red line to vindicate a swift and firm rejection from Israel’s closest allies when he announced plans recently to build a new settlement on a corridor of occupied Palestinian land in East Jerusalem, which will render any prospective Palestinian contiguous state territorially impossible.

05-12-2012 15:29LAON's 17th Press Release analyses what the effect of implementing the 2012 Energy Bill will be on the UK Surface Mine Coal Industry. The prognosis is that it faces medium to long term decline. As a consequence, over time, the strength of the current 'Need for Coal' arguments will slowly weaken. However, it may not come soon enough to prevent two new 9 and 10m tonne surface mines from being developed, one in Scotland and the other in Wales.

05-12-2012 11:11Recent interview with John Bowden by Bristol-based publication 'From Here On In' to be published in the next issue ( http://fromhereonin2012.wordpress.com/).
Fascist bands played twice at Ye Old Salutation. Not oi!, really, fascist. Evidence included.
Ye Old Salutation has been hosting fascist gigs for music label Pure Impact Records, which is associated with the former label of fash band Screwdriver, among others, since at least 12.05.2012, most recently last month. Sometimes they dress it up with "leave your politics at the door" crap, but it's all just for show. Ye Old Salutation has also hosted a love music hate racism gig recently, so maybe the owners are unaware. Obviously fascists should not be hosted by any venue, and definitely not in the centre of Nottingham.
There was a recent concert on 10.11.12 with Skinfull and other extreme right bands. There was also an earlier concert on 12.05.12 with known openly neo-Nazi bands Skinfull and Citizen Keyne. The other bands I didn't look into or instantly recognise. Sometimes far right bands play alongside "grey zone" bands (bands that will play with both extreme right and left wing bands), however in this case it doesn't look like any of the bands are even grey zone. As an example, Skinfull have Nazi tattoos, Citizen Keyne have a photo on their main page where one is wearing a "white and proud" shirt.
