Remembering Marie Vesco

02-06-2010 10:22

Two years ago, a group of London activists cycled to a "Smash Edo" demonstration against the arms trade in Brighton. With them was Marie Vesco, who was part of the Food not Bombs group which regularly handed out food outside Brixton McDonalds. On the way, she was killed by a careless driver on the road. Tomorrow, her friends are holding a remembrance ride from Brixton to Brighton.

The Smash Edo demonstration held a minute's silence in her honour.

At the inquest into this accident, the coroner recommended that proper sign posting, to direct cyclists to a quieter road, should be installed (see blog of the cycling lawyer).

Her death lead to discussions on the socio-political implications of the predominance of cars over cyclists on several forums.

A blog was set up to remember her. The Rampart, one of the social centers she was involved in, published a note in its newsletter and dedicated its 4th anniversary event to her.

A year later, friends and family placed a white ghost bike by the side of the A23, where she was killed.

Tomorrow, there will be another remembrance ride to Brighton starting from Brixton.

As for Zionism;

02-06-2010 06:38

“It depends on what you mean by Zionism. I was a Zionist activist in my youth. For me, Zionism meant opposition to a Jewish state. The Zionist movement did not come out officially in favor of a Jewish state until 1942. Before this it was merely the intent of the Zionist leadership. The Zionist movement for a long time stood against the establishment of a Jewish state because such a state would be discriminatory and racist.”

~ Noam Chomsky

‘If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.’

why marks and spencers are a bad target

01-06-2010 22:26

Why targetting Marks and Spencers plays into the hands of those who say that any "anti israeli" protest are anti-semitism in disguise
Yes, marks and spencers sell israeli produce. However, for many people the assumption people will make is that you are tagetting them is for their jewish immigrant founders - who as far as i know never even visited Israel. Moreover, those who seek to portray critics of Israeli persecution can easily (if deliberatley misleadingly) portray it as anti-semitism. There are loads of better targets... even Tescos (despite there Jewish origins are not as clearly asociated by the British Public as Jewish)) sell far more products of all kinds (including israeli) than M & S.

Starbucks are also a weak target, their CEO is Jewish but they have currently have no direct business links with the State of Israel.
