22-06-2010 09:22Another tragic landmark has been passed with the 300th British soldier to be killed in Afghanistan. They are now dying at a rate of one every two days in a war which is clearly aimless and unwinnable.
Thousands of Afghans have also been killed since the US and British invasion in 2001.
The average age of British soldiers killed in Afghanistan is 22. Two hundred soldiers have been killed in their twenties and 31 teenagers are among the death toll. (SEE http://bit.ly/9vr3AE )
Bristol Stop The War Coalition will be holding a 'Naming The Dead' ceremony on Thursday 24th June from 5pm to 6pm on the Centre (opposite the Hippodrome). We will read the names of Afghan and British dead.
Please circulate this information as widely as possible and try to support this event

22-06-2010 08:28Dear Peace and Progressive Organisations,
The History Society of the DPRK makes the important point that the massacres, war crimes and genocides practiced by barbaric US imperialism and the satellite "UN Forces". against the Korean people between 1950-1953, put the atrocities of the Hitler Nazi clique into the shade.
We are West Glasgow Against Poverty (WestGAP), a long-established, independent, community-based anti-poverty charity and we are opening our doors for the launch of WestGAP 100, our new community fundraising initiative. We are based in Partick but have a city-wide reach - our advice service accepts clients regardless of where they are from and we campaign and educate on poverty issues with a much wider salience.
We operate a very busy advice service, one of the few left in the west of the city as others have been hit by savage cuts to advice providers. Unlike others, we rely wholly on unpaid volunteers and have managed to survive. Unfortunately, we are now feeling the financial strain too. The charitable trusts, foundations and grant-making bodies who we've relied on to help cover our running costs over the past 12 years have all been badly affected by the greed of bankers and the current economic situation. Many of these funding streams have dried up and we are now turning to the wider community and asking for your support to help sustain our work, which is now even more vital as job and public service cuts mean more and more ordinary people are beginning to feel the pinch.
Our WestGAP 100 drive is to find 100 groups or individuals willing to donate £20 per month, which would cover all our running costs and other expenses. This would mean we are sustainable in the long-term and rather than continually chase our tails trying to find funding we could concentrate on fighting poverty. We would of course also greatly appreciate any financial support so donations - one-off or monthly standing order - would be very welcome. Likewise, we are looking for groups, individuals and businesses who would like to adopt us as a chosen charity and run marathons, bungee jump or run events or raffles for us. If you want to help (or find out more) please come along to our Open Day on Saturday. We look forward to seeing you.

Well, it's about time we did one for our sound system, innit?! Kebele sound does it for the love of it, in the spirit of solidarity and partying with purpose! After a few years of non stop PA and volunteer crew providing, helping raise funds for a host of activist groups and good causes in Bristol, we find ourselves more than a bit financially embarassed. So, what better way to raise some much needed funds for yer favourite anarchist sound system than a night of uproar courtesy of KSC and friends, at our local venue of choice, the long suffering Plough! You know it makes sense.
