rampART news year's eve party cancelled

30-12-2004 04:58

Sadly, the rampart NYE fundraising party has been cancelled due to a violent conflict and our wish to ensure that it doesn't spill over into the event. We are very sorry to have to do this, not least because it means missing out on a good opportunity to raise some more money towards bill, however we feel we have no choice.

Circle Community Centre

29-12-2004 21:14

The Circle Community Centre at the old St.Georges Theatre 49 Tufnell Park Rd, London was occupied 3 months ago, as part of an ongoing campaign for urgent action on our critical environmental situation, which has been carried out in numerous squats for the last 12+years (ref. Agenda 21 from the Rio Earth Summit 1992).

Initially taken as an Earth Circus rehearsal space, it has now evolved into a Circle Community Centre. This old church has been a theatre for the last 32 years. However it has been left empty for the last four years and so over the last 3 months untold hard work from many volunteers has re-activated this theatre as a community space.

We were very happy to host the Indymedia benefit party, which was rammed with large queues, however with a bit of patience pretty much everyone got in.

This was an amazing event with top quality performers, especially The Rub Revolutionation, Fundamental, Unpeople, Planetman and the Internationalz , Angel and of course our street action favorites the Rhythms of Resistance who raised the roof with samba vibrations in the stunning acoustics of the hall. Big shout to all the Indymedia crews, Rampart possee, Mudge Peace Not War, the door crew/ stewards, caretakers of the centre, cleaners, recyclers, cafe crew, and you know who, all those volunteers to numerous to mention who keep these places running day in day out, big shout, big up yourselves.

We have video footage that will soon go up on the web , we need some more tech support with this. Especially a more powerful computer that can store more video. Also help to set up live streaming of some of our events.

Keeping the centre going is a constant mission, it is run voluntary on donations by an intrepid band of caretakers.

We need your help, come in and visit , there are many tings to do and many tings a go on.

Everyday caretaking, letting people in an showing them round on open hours, repairs and maintenance, cooking ,cleaning, office work, tech support, research, creativity, kids activities, running workshops and meetings, gardening and campaigning to save this community resource.

We especially need help opposing the change of use plans from theatre back into single denominational church.

The building is owned by the House on the Rock a Nigerian pentecostal church who have said they will allow it to be used for about 10 hours per week of community and theatre activities.

The planning committee is on Jan 18th any resident of Islington, Camden, Hackney or Haringay can send in their views online at or write a letter to Islington planning or lobby the Islington councilors.(details on our website)

We have an appeal court hearing which has already been adjourned till some point in the new year, at which we have a strong case for a license granted at an early meeting with house on the rocks.

However, this appeal case will probably be heard after Jan 18 and if the planning is not granted for change of use, then the building could be passed back to a community consortium who could compensate House on the Rock.

Meaning this historic theatre could be used by many wide and varied environmental and community groups for many years to come. There is already a St. Georges Development Trust who are a not for profit company who are campaigning to keep the building in the public domain.

This campaign is winnable if enough support is received over the next 2 months.

It's up to all of us! Take action for a brighter sustainable future.

Iraq 04 like Vietrnam 66.

29-12-2004 15:15

"After factoring in medical, doctrinal, and technological improvements, infantry duty in Iraq circa 2004 comes out just as intense as infantry duty in Vietnam circa 1966, and in some cases more lethal. Even discrete engagements, such as the battle of Hue City in 1968 and the battles for Fallujah in 2004, tell a similar tale: Today's grunts are patrolling a battlefield every bit as deadly as the crucible their fathers faced in Southeast Asia."
