Rhythms of Resistance Manchester & Sheffield
drums against Menwith hill US base
golf balls guards
CND, Space for Peace, the drumming circle,local people and Rhythms of Resistance protested against the US power of space, spy communications and war. The message was clear and loud Fuck Bush, Fuck Blair, Stop the War, No star wars. The protest ended up with the Police dragging the Rhythms of Resistance drummers away from the gate/entrance in a desparate attempt of protecting the spy-filled golf balls from...erm music and love!
Karl Dallas sang his inspirational songs
Martin Deane (Hull and East Riding Green Party) gave background to Menwith
We walked round the base, Lindis gave more info about the place.
Independence from America
They are watching us watching them watching YOU
This was part of an international Keep Space for Peace week of action ( http://www.space4peace.org)
Lindis Percy, Joint Co-ordinator with Anni Rainbow of the Campaign for the Accountability of
American Bases ( http://www.caab.org.uk/) reminded people how important it is to be continually scratching at the edges of empires like Menwith... saying no to this takeover by the USA, no to this invasion of privacy, no to this desecration of the Yorkshire soil.
