On Wednesday, August 8th we will be screening Working Slowly (Radio Alice). This drama from 2004, set during the student uprisings of 1977, is part of our "Radical History Film Nights" series.

03-08-2012 10:03

Reflexive opposition to Uncle Sam’s machinations abroad is generally a good thing. It is a progressive instinct that progressively declined in the 1990s, as presidents Bush Sr. and Clinton deftly deployed the U.S. military to execute “humanitarian” missions in Somalia, Haiti, and the Balkans and progressively increased in the 2000s, as Bush Jr. lurched from quagmire to disaster in transparent empire-building exercises in Afghanistan and Iraq.

On the 12th July we squatted Scottish Coal's new opencast site in the Douglas Valley at Glentaggart East for a week-long action camp.

The EDL's Latest Fear: Communistic Ray Guns

30-07-2012 13:57

You've all heard of Muslamic Ray Guns, the inter-Stella weapons that gave EDL thickoes the willies, making them spontaneously piss themselves in public, giving rise to the incredibly-fashionable "Damp Denim Look". Since then, the paranoid losers are calling everybody who opposes them, from anarchists to liberal democrats and even Tories, "communists!".

Meet the brand new anti-fascist weapon that is far more effective at stopping EDLers sleep at night than a family-size nosebag of cocaine.....
