A group of socialist activists in Lambeth have produced a manifesto which they hope will politicise UNISON members and provide the platform on which to build a "fighting, member-led branch" based on clear socialist politics. The manifesto was the basis for candidates to contest elections at the Lambeth UNISON AGM on a "Lambeth Activists" platform.

16-01-2009 12:02

According to Robert Peston many of Europes largest companies are approaching the time when they have to renew their loans.

SHAC sentencing and festering hypocrisy

16-01-2009 11:59

UKBA Children's policy, 'Not worth the paper its' written on'

Raphael 5 still in the Lions mouth, now 43 days in detention
Spoke to Raphael and Oluseye his Mum this morning, Raphael was very subdued according to mum after spending close to seven hours at Bedford General Hospital. Mum said that she was called at about 3:00pm yesterday and told that Raphael had his finger closed in the door, he had to go to the hospital for stitches. Mum said it was not made clear to her how the accident actually happened.

Oluseye told me that a report was written about her having lots of people coming to her room and one of the male officers said to her; "I am watching you Oluseye", she then asked me if she was doing anything wrong or breaking the law by having friends and their children in her room, she feels that this is intimidation. She also said for those of us who are locked up in Yarl's Wood, "we are sitting in the lion's mouth and anytime the lion can close its' jaws".  Nellie de jongh

Please send urgent faxes/emails immediately to Rt. Hon Jacqui Smith, MP, Secretary of State for the Home Office, requesting that Raphael and his mother are released. Please use the updated 'model letter' RaphaelShaubaJS.doc attached or write your own version. If you do so, please remember to include HO ref: S/38066/3

The blame game in Gaza: Covering for Israel, concealing war crimes

16-01-2009 08:43
