Public meeting: Stand up for your freedom to protest! LSE, 2nd December

16-11-2007 11:43

Gordon Brown plans to extend the restrictions on demonstrations near parliament to cover the whole country, claiming that this will simplify the work of the police. The current law totally bans spontaneous protests, requiring advance police permission, which allows the police to impose arbitrary limits on numbers and effectively act as political censors. The consultation proposes extending these rules to any protest anywhere, in the name of 'harmonisation'. The freedom to protest was won through hard struggle and if we want to keep it we must take a stand to say enough is enough. Come to a public meeting to plan a public response: we propose early January.

Public meeting

Make Deportations Impossible!

16-11-2007 00:10

Demonstration for the Right to Stay in Frankenburg, Upper Austria, Oct 6, 2007
Currently in Austria the number of deportations is increasing. The forced deportations of "well-integrated" families has provoked particular outrage. More and more frequently people are pulled out of their beds in the early morning, brought to deportation jails, and are kicked out of the country in the course of mass deportations by charter flights. In this way numerous people are deported, although entire towns demand their right to stay.

Stop fueling the Burmese junta - boycott Total Oil and Chevron/Texaco

15-11-2007 19:25

Far from the headlines, the crisis in Burma continues--fuelled, in part, by international oil corporations like Total Oil and Chevron/Texaco. These corporations don't just fund the junta; they lobby on its behalf in capital cities around the world. These are the same companies many of us fuel up with. That means our pressure as consumers has the power to force change—and it's our responsibility to act.

During the Northern Rock bank run, the press were blamed by banking executives for scaring depositors. Since then public criticism has been scant, despite the massive taxpayer bail-out of 'Blackbird' ( the Rocks codename) -a patient that remains catatonic. Meanwhile, the broader 'subprime lending crisis' is likely to be exposed soon as the response to global mortgage fraud.
