Birmingham: May Day International Worker's day

07-05-2011 19:11

May Day march in Birmingham
Today there was a demonstration called by Birmingham Trades Union Council to celebrate May Day— International Workers Day.

May Day celebrates International Workers Day and is marked traditionally when the Trade Union Movement gathers with the community to celebrate our achievements and to commit ourselves to achieving economic and social justice for all.

Birmingham TUC worked together with Birmingham Against the Cuts and invited trades unionists, students and the public to join this demonstration to stop the cuts and fight for an alternative based on our needs, not bankers greed!

DPAC was there with our stall and banner at the start at St Philips Cathedral – we were to march through part of the city centre to Victoria Sq where there were speeches. I joined Matt, Linda and Paul there to hand out leaflets and chat to the people there. It was a lively crowd and people seemed genuinely interested to stop and chat and to take up handouts. There was a UKuncut group dressed up in white body suits with black tipped markings – they said the body stockings were what the UKuncut people (Fortnum and Mason Solidarity Bloc) had to wear after the Fortnum and Mason event in London, 26th march. Next to our stall was the Confronting Anti Muslim Hatred stall. There was also an anti war stall.

The phony anti-war movement

07-05-2011 16:07

The U.S. anti-war movement was always a lot less than it appeared to be. At its height, activists claimed that the sheer weight of visible public opinion would shake power relationships to the very foundation. But it turned out that many of the anti-war legions were actually comprised of partisan Democrats who only opposed Republican wars. “For the phony anti-warrior, imperialism with a Democratic face, is just fine.”

Braindead Fascist EDL Bozos To Protest At Chorley Comedy Gig

07-05-2011 12:54

This sounds like a wind-up, but sadly it's true. Proving once and for all that they are fascist as well as thick as two short planks, the infernal idiots of the English Defence League are going to protest against comedian Russell Howard for daring to tell a joke against the EDL. Their hero Adolf Hitler burnt books, and yet the so-called "free-speech loving" EDLers want free reign to tweet vile racist jokes around the net, but when someone dares to put the boot on the other foot, the EDL show their true fascist censorship colours.
