Ring around the clock - Making Poverty History

10-04-2005 15:58

Make poverty history / Drop the debt
As the millenium clock in the centre of Swindon struck noon on Saturday, people dressed in white surrounded it to form a white ring, like one of those wristbands in aid of the Make Poverty History campaign. They were silent for a minute, with the exception of some percussion instrument which marked an avoidable death due to poverty every three seconds. At the end of the minute, a whistle blew and they all shouted "Make Poverty History". A long banner was unrolled around the outside of the group, reading "Poverty kills 30,000 people every day. 'Click' there's another one. 1.3 billion people live on less than 53p a day. MAKE POVERTY HISTORY".

Swindonians are still Together On Planning

10-04-2005 14:53

Wait for the results of the public inquiry
Bright sun and a chilly wind greeted the people of Swindon as they assembled in Faringdon Road Park on Saturday 9th April 2005 for the second STOP (Swindonians Together On Planning) march. Placards spoke out against various unpopular planning decisions in and around the borough of Swindon, and many different signs were in evidence which made use of a subverted version of the orange Swindon Borough Council logo. The protestors marched through the Railway Village, past the Mechanics Institute, through the town centre to a rally outside the Civic Offices.

Springing into action for 2005

10-04-2005 10:54

Yes, it's that time of year and after ten months or so of use the
building could do with a lick of paint and a general tidy. We also plan
to sort out the lack of lighting on the first floor, fit a shower,
finish the darkroom, install a door phone entry system and much more. So
put on some old clothes, grab anything you think might be useful (paint,
brushes, tools, etc.) and get down to the rampART for some social
cleaning fun to prepare the rampart for the coming months. We'll be
having a sunday supper and an evening meal (bring food to share) then
chilling out with some films and relaxed socialising.
