This event is intended to help us learn from recent history and kickstart the debate how how we resist the most recent attacks on us.

Statement of solidarity with the Nottingham 114

19-04-2009 09:53

If the 114 climate campaigners who were arrested in Nottingham on 13.4.09

- now. Direct action of the sort that breaks laws to prevent the
terrifying impacts spelt out in worst-case climate change scenarios is
absolutely necessary.
