REMEMBER EACH ELEVENTH . . . . progress, despite desperate "minderbinder" ploys!

14-08-2008 10:25

The "remember each eleventh" campaign is based around the idea that the eleventh of the eleventh "poppy day" isnt enough, these days, as we seem not to "remember" so much that our repetitions of past tragedies is almost past farcical . . . . hence, 12 times a year, a week of action around the eleventh around the widest possible formal/informal coalition, on the lines of the passionate reasoning that put the circular "wreath" on a lasting memorial in whitehall ( a "traffic hazard", "sticking up like a sore thumb" as the blocking efforts of the bureacrats of the time had it ) - to represent those of all spiritual traditions, politics, etc - but also those without.

A conspiracy revealed and more sackings and purges to come after the BNP's EGM

14-08-2008 09:27

Here we are again, on the run-up to another Red, White and Blue disaster, with the BNP in disarray and Nick Griffin's leadership looking at its rockiest since the heady days of December 2007, when Sadie Graham and co were booted unceremoniously out of the party amid allegations of email-tampering and back-stabbing that led (eventually) to Manchester Civil Court, though not to any kind of resolution.

Asked to be a Police Informant.

13-08-2008 22:52

If my memory from the AR gathering serves me correctly, and I think it does this is Tracey below, this lady copper has been on the phone asking me to "help her out". We were going to do something a bit fun, at her expense, of course, but we never did. During the period I was getting calls from this copper I was keeping other activists around the country up to date as well as getting a lot of input on how to deal with her. I would suggest unless you know what you’re doing or have a lot of experience around you, to always tell them to piss off, as the first brown nosing word that seeps out of their mouth.
