A symbol for anyone to declare membership in a growing and vital human cooperative" Gurgle. Deadline for entries are the first of December 2008.

Spanish Republican ex-political prisoners scolded in Congress for flag

14-06-2008 22:35

naughty old geezer has his flag confiscated - last time he got jail.
It was supposed to be a day in which the current Spanish state paid lip-service to the memory of the legitimate 2nd republic overthrown by Franco in the preamble to the second world war. Accordingly ex-political prisoners who were imprisoned for their Republican loyalties during the Franco dictatorship were invited to sit in the lower house of the Spanish parliament and look like nice well adjusted elderly people who despite knowing that more than 200,000 of their fellows are still in unmarked graves, feel really special and adjusted now. Then one of them started waving the flag of the 2nd republic about.

I live 400 miles away in Edinburgh and would love to be there to protest Bush's disgraceful visit. I was there in 2003 for his State visit when the giant statue was toppled in Trafalgar Square. This time I'll be there in spirit. Best of luck to all who get there to tell him he's not welcome.

Solidarity actions for Sean Kirtley

14-06-2008 21:22

"One More Cage To Empty" - Free Sean Kirtley
Sean along with many others had his door smashed in and his house raided by police back in 2006 as part of “Operation Tornado” which was designed to start a case and try and lock up peaceful animal rights campaigners using new SOCPA legislation which was created to protect the vivisection industry from effective campaigners such as Sean and the Sequani defendants.

On May 30th 2008 Sean was found guilty of "conspiracy to interfere with contractual relationships so as to harm an animal research organisation" and was sentenced to four and a half years for his role in running the SSAT (Stop Sequani Animal Testing) website.

Since his imprisonment there have been solidarity actions from Yorkshire, the south west and as far away as Mexico.
