Azelle Rodney murdered by Police (his murderer is still on a paid holiday)

30-09-2005 00:56

Azelle Rodney (police shot him dead). His family want justice.
Mother asks why was her son shot dead in the street by Police?
"My son, Azelle Rodney, was tragically killed on Saturday 30 April 2005 outside a pub in Hale Lane, Edgeware by an armed officer of the Metropolitan Police. Azelle, who had just celebrated his 24th birthday and was looking forward to the birth of his first baby, had been busy making plans to build a life for him and his new family."

Officer who shot and killed Azelle Rodney still on holiday as letters to Sir Ian Blair ignored (30/09/2005)
Members of the Azelle Rodney campaign are incensed that the officer who shot and killed him on 30 April has yet to be interviewed although he remains on holiday. Blair's orders to "shoot to kill" have murdered innocents, and Blair has not responded to Azelle's family.

The police must obey the same laws as everyone. Ignorant racist police should go to jail when they commit a crime such as the murder of Azelle Rodney. If bad police are allowed to go unpunished, they will continue to commit crimes. It is because we have a Prime Minister like Tony Blair that murderers are allowed to walk free. New Labour have caused the high crime rate.

Day of Action Against Climate Chaos?

29-09-2005 22:39

One of the proposals to be discussed at the Dissent Gathering in Sheffield (Oct 15/16) is for a day (or days) of action against the real causes of climate
chaos. At a number of the feed-back sessions there was support for an action camp in the summer of 2006, similar to the anti-G8 ecovillage in Stirling. The idea was to have it near potential direct action targets including oil refineries, at a time of our choosing.

The Nursery Social Centre Birmingham

29-09-2005 19:57

The Nursery at 1 Bournbrook Road, Selly Oak in Birmingham was shutdown by Birmingham City Council and left empty for two years. The council shut the community nursery down and handed it over to its Economic Development Department (E.D.D). E.D.D. are a private company who sell our public property to the private sector. There is no public consultation about this process. Local projects from council nurseries to sports centres are being closed and sold off to the private sector for re-development across the city.

Here's a very short intro to a longer film about the Nursery Social Centre. Sorry I haven't got round to encoding it with an open source codec yet. If you have any problems playing the film in it's Mp4 format download vlc player - an open source player:

Spots and Stripes

29-09-2005 15:03

It is well known that John Howard, infamous lackey and liar, is devoid of anything that could be remotely regarded as masculine or manly; the draconian measures he has implemented to ‘secure’ Australia against the terrorist bogeyman are astounding. Few if any previous Prime Ministers have openly displayed such unadulterated cowardice and fear. It would be easy to believe that Howard fears a terrorist strike, but that is not his primary fear!
