Video of the Colnbrook Blockade

17-05-2009 13:14

on 12th May 2009, a dozen anti-deportation campaigners from the Stop Deportation network and the International Federation of Iraqi Refugees blockaded the entrance to Colnbrook and Harmondsworth detention centres near Heathrow, to try and prevent the mass deportation of 45 Iraqi Kurdish refugees held at Colnbrook via charter flight. Six activists locked themselves together, using glass and plastic arm tubes attached to heavy concrete barrels. The blockade lasted for over four hours, after which three coaches carrying the deportees left for an undisclosed airport. All six were arrested (two quite violently) for obstruction of the highway.

"Drop The Charge" Demo Pictures.

16-05-2009 18:09

All donations gratefully accepted...
Today something unprecedented happened.

Community arts event organisers found themselves having to protest against the police who up until now have turned up to cover their events for no extra charge, as it was understood it was covered by our taxes.

But now a PRIVATE company, by the name of ACPO is demanding fees from ALL organisers of ALL community events, so the police can turn up and do the very same job they've been doing FOR NO EXTRA CHARGE for years.

End self regulation of Parliament

16-05-2009 16:54

I am amazed that there is so little serious discussion of the need to radically reform Parliament. I want to put forward an idea which would exclude MPs and Lords from any influence over the making or enforcement of the rules governing them.
