Critical Mass London 13th Anniversary ride.

28-04-2007 09:04

Video Start of ride left
The very well attended Mass got off to a good start, despite a spelling mistake on the kindly donated t-shirts. There was the usual large police presence with its usual intimidating videoing of riders. Pity they can't take their own medicine and try to conceal their faces.

Call for Submissions: Zine on Property Destruction

28-04-2007 07:51

Entering the radical community, many quickly find themselves constantly hearing about debate over property destruction. Is it violence? Does it matter if it's violence? Is it effective? Is it alienating? And on and on. I've been hearing this argument pretty much since I regularly started attending protests. At this point, I almost don't want to deal with the subject. Naturally, you're asking, "Then why the hell do you want to make a zine about it?"

Is Leadership Extinct in America?

27-04-2007 16:49

This is an overview of the trend seen in America of a failure of leadership during times of civil emergency. Law Enforcement is included. Following the Sept 11th attack, the US Federal govt has infused huge sums of money into law enforcement and even civilian training.
It appears that the answer to leadership in times of crisis in all sectors of US society
is to be found in the plain site, but is being missed by most citizens.

Covert Government Investigations, using community policing. AKA Gang Stalking.

26-04-2007 20:40

There are people in large metropolitan cities being stalked, harassed, mobbed, and followd around and many do not know why. Many are having to change jobs, move constantly, have their lives disrupted and they can't find help or assistance for what is happening to them. Many are stumbling in the dark and being mislead by those around them. I hope to the best of my ability to shed a little bit more light on what is happening and help others better start to find help and assistance.

Save Moseley Road Baths

25-04-2007 19:29

Moseley Road baths in Balsall Heath will be 100 years old on October 30th this year. They were given to the residents of Balsall Heath along with a library in return for the people’s agreement to become part of the City of Birmingham. They are a fine example of how important public baths were at that time, indeed for many they were more than just a place to swim, they had baths to wash in. The Baths housed a first class and a second class men’s pool and lots of cast iron slipper baths for people to bathe in, women in those days did not swim!
