Photos from Birmingham Council House blockade

26-02-2013 15:16

Activists from across Birmingham have been blockading all entrances to the Council House since 11am, trying to physically prevent Councillors from entering for the budget meeting, where the cuts will be undemocratically voted through. Not surprisingly, most Councillors were not willing to engage with them in debate. The police have helped push the cuts through by forcibly attempting to break up the blockade and escorting the Councillors to the art museum entrance, which is linked to the Council House. Activists attempted to blockade these alternative entrances, but the police kept finding new ways to get Councillors inside. One activist managed to find a way inside the Council House during the meeting, and heckled Albert Bore before being carried out by security.

Counter-protest against the NF, Swansea, 9 March 2013

26-02-2013 03:10

9 March demo publicity, on the SWNF website
South Wales NF are planning a "White Pride World Wide" demo, to take place in Swansea on 9 March 2013. Although the publicity pretends the demo is against racial discrimination directed at whites, it's organised by Hitler-worshipping Nazis Bryan & David Powell, and as such insults all Welsh people who fought during WW2 and the Spanish Civil War, and the 230 people who were murdered and 400 people who were injured by Hitler's Luftwaffe during the Swansea Blitz.
