July Events at Cowley Club

03-07-2010 11:12

The Cowley Club is a social centre on London Road in Brighton. It houses a cafe and bookshop during the day, a members bar during the evenings, it also has a library and is a base for a variety of other projects.
The club is collectively owned and run as a base for those involved in grassroots social change and those sympathetic to such activities, giving us control over our social space and resources. It is run entirely by volunteers - no one gets paid, and no one is making any profit. Instead, we are trying to provide a much needed alternative to everything else around us.

12 arrests after democracy village court victory

02-07-2010 23:22

12 activists were arrested outside downing street after an afternoon of further action under the umbrella "operation rolling thunder". earlier in the day, the high court granted right to appeal against eviction from parliament square

after the high court verdict found in favour of boris and the gla earlier this week, a stay of execution was granted to give time for an appeal. the appeal has now been lodged on behalf of five defendants, and the high court has granted a further stay on the bailiffs until the appeal hearing which will be during the week of the 12th to 16th july.


the appeal is based on points of law, challenging the ruling that the GLA has the right to possess and injunct on behalf of the landowner, the crown.

if the appeal is successful, the crown will have to apply via the attorney general for an eviction order, rather than the GLA.

this afternoon, parliament square was packed with activists and media in wait for the announcement. by 4.30, a crowd of activists surged across the road. some made it again into the grounds of parliament, while a group of 50 or more took the street and staged a sit-in.others climbed the gates of parliament and unfurled peace banners.

rush-hour traffic was stopped for nearly two hours by the impromptu action against the afghanistan war, and then they moved on down to stage a further sit-in outside the gates of downing street, where eventually twelve people were arrested.

some of those arrested last week, during an invasion of the parliament grounds, have now had bail conditions set on them that they are not to go within one metre of 'protected' government buildings.


the democracy village, which has already defied all predictions by lasting since may 1st, will now have another two weeks to continue actions under its 'rolling thunder' moniker. again they have called out for other activists and groups to come and join them and to strengthen their foothold outside parliament in what they continue to describe as the most exciting development in direct action protest seen for many years.

remember that they represent the views of around three quarters of the british population according to several independent surveys. it will not look good when the government eventually tries to shut them down, and the more people resisting that shut down, the worse it will be for the authorities. they have now created quite a lot of press interest, so any repression will occur in the bright lights of the media. this is why it is such an opportunity for the peace movement and other activists to become involved.

they generally hold planning meetings each day at 1pm, but they man a welcome desk so people are invited to join at any time and help make banners and help plan and join in with actions.

Americans have no rights

02-07-2010 17:51

Under Barack Obama, the former professor of constitutional law, Americans’ civil liberties have shrunken drastically – to the point that his administration claims the right to execute its citizens without charge or due process of any recognizable kind. And citizens that leave the country cannot be sure they will be allowed back in. But where is the outrage among Democrats, when Obama out-Bushes Bush? “It seems that Democrats did not in fact feel any affront to Bush policies, only to his party affiliation.”
