More Barclays Demos in London

05-09-2008 16:08

This Thursday we used as a chance for another day of action against Barclays Bank, who are HLS's largest institutional shareholder as well as being third biggest shareholder in NYSE/Euronext. They are a disgusting greedy filthy-rich bank who will make money any which way. $8m of Barclays' money has been invested in HLS to kill, maim, burn, poison and mutilate sentient animals. How dare Barclays give money to this torture!

Craig Cox
Recent news that Craig Cox, incoming Education Officer at the University of Nottingham, is being investigated by the police for an alleged race hate incident might not surprise some students. Cox, who waved a sign saying 'Bring Back Slavery' at a recent National Uniont of Students (NUS) event, is merely the latest in a long line of upper class students who think that flirting with racism and fascism is an amusing game.

Kingsnorth: Activists use climate change as defence for £30,000 tower

05-09-2008 15:14

This week six Greenpeace activists charged with causing £30,000 of criminal damage to a power station have been on trial at Maistone Crown Court. Its a key case because they are arguing that although they caused damage it was criminal because it was necessary to prevent greater damage to property caused by the effects of climate change, specifically the Yellow River, the Larsen B ice shelf, rainforest in Amazon and Congo and properety and liveleihoods in Banagladesh and Sri Lanka.

Italy to increase Troop numbers on the street.

05-09-2008 11:50

We all know that the Italian state put 3,000 troops including paratroopers on the streets of Milan, Rome and Naples earlier this year. We were unanimous in our condemnation. Pat yourself on the back. But now we get to see what they did. Figures available today confirm that the Italian army has participated in 97 arrests of which 66 people were migrants. Just in case you're bad at soft maths - that indicates that two thirds of military arrests of civilians have been migrants & the arrest rate is about one to every thirty soldiers. In addition to those fascination factoids there have been 263 reports made and 242 car thefts dealt with.

Obviously Italy needs more troops on the street. & minister of the interior Roberto Maroni has confirmed on his webpage and in an interview that Italy is going to get a surge.
