Mobile Protest "Let Aid Experts into Burma" for Cyclone Relief

13-05-2008 23:51

Starting at Parliament Square
On May 10th, 10 protesters dressed in black in mourning formed a mobile protest around various London landmarks. They were protesting against the Burma junta's refusal to allow aid experts into Burma for Cyclone relief and also at the junta's disgraceful preoccupation with continuing the rigged referendum [1] on the military biased constitution on May 10th, rather than cyclone relief. See below for Global Day of Action for Cyclone Nargis victims.

'Freedom To Protest' Demonstration, 18th May, Edinburgh

13-05-2008 13:21

Poster: print and distribute!
A peaceful demonstration is planned to assert our right to freely protest without fear. It will be held at 12pm on the 18th of May at Parliament Square, as a response to the campaign of harassment and intimidation which Lothian and Borders Police is directing at peaceful protsters in Edinburgh. Such repression violates human rights and, if it continues, it will stifle popular participation in civil society. The demonstration is also in solidarity with the dozens of working class people who are oppressed by the Edinburgh 'justice' system every day.

11-05-2008 16:03

In spite of the boom and bust cycle of shrimp farming, Thailand has continued to maintain relative calm in the eye of a storm called "Indochina". Just across the "Friendship Bridge" lies the Empire of Halliburton and Unocal (chevron), where the threat of genocide has loomed for decades, and tentacles spread through Thailand where information warfare was launched on New Years Day, 2007. It has reached a new level today.

All charges against Pauline Campbell dropped (again).

11-05-2008 12:01

In a desperate bid to avoid a PR disaster of catastrophic proportions, the Crown Prosecution Service has wisely decided that prosecuting Pauline Campbell for her last action at HMP Styal would ‘not be in the public interest’. Which is CPSspeak for: ‘Giving a public platform (courtroom) to a bereaved mother, thus enabling her to make hugely embarrassing facts about Styal Prison known to everyone would really piss the government off’. So yet again Pauline is free to continue her campaign of direct action against those institutions which fail in their duty of care to their inmates. For a full report about what happened the last time Pauline was nicked click here:

See below for Pauline’s response to the latest climbdown by the state.

Early arrivals wait outside the venue
Freeconomy Wrexham held its second dedicated Bring and Take event today. Our intensive postering and flyering in Brynteg paid off, and lots of people from the local area came along to find out more and went home laden with useful things, all for free. Bring and Take is a great thing to do - really happy and hopeful. We'd recommend it to anyone! Meanwhile, down at the council skips, there's a distinct absence of goodwill...

Burmese Cyclone protest at Burma Embassy "Let Aid Experts In"

10-05-2008 02:25

"Let Aid Experts In"
Appalled yet hardly surprised at the junta's callous indifference to the deaths of up to 100,000 citizens and 1.5 million more destitute, the Burmese community protested passionately at their embassy on May 9th for aid experts and aid to be allowed into Burma. Whilst getting away as always with giving the international community the run-around, this time playing games over frustrating aid shipments - the brutal junta has been more preoccupied with rigging its military biased constitution referendum for May 10th.
