In Bristol and surrounds, a diverse group of people will converge between
the 12th and 20th September; drawn together by the common threads of our
indignation at how a combination of corporate greed, social injustice, war and
environmental degradation is leading us all towards climate choas and
financial collapse. Collectively we will share skills and knowledge, and
collaborate in autonomous actions to find a way out of the mess.

08-09-2009 15:09Media, politicians, neo-Nazis and even "decent people" have united in order to bring to light today's biggest threat: the unadapted.

Monday morning, and with ITT sponsoring a pre-DSEi conference at the QE2 Conference Centre in Victoria, a meet and greet event was organised for 8 in the morning. Arriving about 20 minutes early, the first sight to greet the eyes is 3 police vans and a sea of yellow jackets clustered around the entrance door. As I get closer, I see that someone must have got there much earlier, as the central glass panel is redecorated with an antiwar slogan. Railings are being erected around the site, and as I draw closer I am approached by a copper who calls me by a name that is definitely not mine. He informs me that someone has applied for permission to demonstrate, and that they have provided a designated protest area to facilitate our right to protest. I point out that I am nothing to do with the application, and that I would not be joining anyone who had applied for state permission to exercise the right to protest. He then proceeds to threaten me with a SOCPA arrest if I don't enter the pen.
