No War, No Warming, Rise Up!

20-09-2007 10:13

For months a movement has been developing that consciously and intentionally links the related issues of the war in Iraq/oil wars and the heating up of the earth that is disrupting the world’s climate. On Monday morning, October 22, in Washington , DC on Capitol Hill and elsewhere around the country, that movement will become visible as large numbers of people engage in nonviolent direct action to disrupt business as usual. We will be calling for an end to this criminal war and strong action to slow, stop and reverse global warming ( ).

“Ignominious” British in Basra

20-09-2007 10:10

The British government promoted its occupation of Basra as an exercise more sophisticated and intelligent than that conducted by its ally the US in Iraq. From the moment the British hunkered down in Basra after the March 2003 invasion of Iraq it seemed the British government and much of the mainstream media never missed a chance to boast of the softly-softly, ‘hearts and minds’ approach of its occupation. We were assured that this had everything to do with the experience it had gained in previous British military exploits, particularly in Northern Ireland, while the US were still learning lessons from their historic defeat in Vietnam. This projection of the fair-playing Brits was repeated ad naseum until a string of dramatic events took place in front of the world’s media which put an end to this myth making. Events such as prisoner and detainee abuse by British soldiers, and SAS special forces undercover operations apparently designed to foment civil strife, exposed the British army as no different to any other hostile military occupier. Everyone outside the Ministry of Defence and Cabinet agrees that the British ‘deployment’ from Basra Palace to the airport eleven kilometres out of the city is a defeat.

Setting up the Gatwick No Border Camp

20-09-2007 00:16

the outside gate
About 40 or so people arrived at the new site on Sunday afternoon to start set up. Time was of the essence: since the previous site had fallen through following police harassment of the landowner, the organisers wished to establish their presence as soon as possible and to set up the big structures. The structures had been collected from various other collectives around the country, many of which have been used for other camps. Soon the camp began to look rather familiar to the more seasoned camper!

Return Beatrice to Liverpool

19-09-2007 22:32

Beatrice campaigning in Liverpool
Beatrice who was living in Liverpool was 'removed' to Cameroon on 28th August after being held in Yarls Wood detention camp for many weeks. Beatrice resisted being forced onto the plane but she has told us that she was very badly beaten and kicked by her two 'escorts'. Her condition was so bad that the Cameroonian authorities refused to acccept someone who was in such a bad state into their country and put her on a plane the same night on a flight back to the UK. She remains in Yarls Wood and has had her mobile taken from her and she is very unhappy with her legal representatives.

Leafleting at St Lukes at the top of Bold Street on Saturday 22nd September 1.30 - 2.30 for Beatrice and others, as sadly Beatrice's case is not exceptional, many others suffer from these racist immigration controls.

BALOCHISTAN - ICJ - Articulating the case and educating the West

19-09-2007 20:30

"...question is whether or not the ICJ can give fair hearing to Balochistan, a tribal province without clear sovereign status, now that Pakistan has become a nation of international standing. Which is why it is imperative that such a move is backed in the press. The alternative, if an appeal to the ICJ fails, is likely to be armed struggle."
