Pauline Campbell 1948-2008

15-05-2008 16:08

It is with great sadness that I report the death of Pauline Campbell whose body was found at the grave of her daughter Sarah this morning. She was an inspiration to all who knew her, both activists and journalists alike. She fought for years for the rights of those whom the government and society would try to forget. She was never afraid to put herself in the firing line and to this effect she was arrested 15 times though the state never succeeded in prosecuting her. To see her courageous action and eloquent speeches it was easy to forget that she fought a daily battle with her grief at losing her only daughter. Something she never really recovered from.

She leaves behind a proud legacy of tireless campaigning and direct action. Rest in peace Pauline. You will be remembered with great pride and affection by all of us who had the honour of knowing you.

SOCPA: Rebalancing your rights, unravelling the "repeal"

15-05-2008 13:14

The government wants your help (well, mainly the police and MPs, but it looks better this way) to restrict freedom to protest in new soundbite friendly ways, in particular to "prevent permanent demonstrations in Parliament Square":


The two Houses of Parliament have established a Joint Committee to examine and
report on the Government’s Draft Constitutional Renewal Bill (Cm 7342) published
on 25 March 2008. The committee has been ordered to report by 18 July.

At its first meeting on 7 May the Committee elected Michael Jabez Foster MP as
Members’ declared interests are available on the Committee’s website:
The Committee expects to take oral evidence up to mid-June."

15-05-2008 10:34

In the days immediately following the May 1 contest for London mayor, the Socialist Workers Party published online a number of articles attempting to explain the poor showing of its candidates for the London Assembly and mayoral candidate Lindsay German, standing as the Left List.
