In a wave of publicity surrounding the action, people all around the country and talking about visiting their local vodafone store in disgust at being allowed to not pay £4.8bn in tax, while vital public services are being smashed.

EDL demo in amsterdam restricted after AFA campaing

27-10-2010 23:03

update: the edl demo is banned by the mayor to the midle of nowhere in the western docklands after an good media campagne and grassroots organising by amsterdam afa.
its waiting now to see if they will accept but the mayor made it very clear that any EDL (or AFA for that matter) that demonstrators outside their designated area will be arrested (and in case of the edl "kicked back on the boat they came from", the mayors words)
AFA still puts out an alert too opose EDL actvity over the whole weekend (there is talk that the EDL will seek an court rulling too get their central demo location back) but is faced with an emergency "restraining" order. An UAF like protest is allowed in the center of town at the old synagoge at the feet of the remembrance statue for the 1941 general strikers.
Ajax tifosi and migrant youth have vowed to give the EDl canal swimming lessons if they show up in town mob-handed.

Whose cops are more racist, America’s or the Brits'?

27-10-2010 22:51

In any global battle of the racists, the U.S. and Britain are always top contenders. A new study has some putting odds on merrily racist Old England (and Wales) for the honor of white supremacist society in-chief. “The figures would seem to indicate that Blacks in England and Wales are targeted by police with even more ferocity than their counterparts in New York City.” But the Big Apple takes a back seat to no one, when it comes to bigoted police behavior on the streets.

Iran’s "green wave" opposition and its ties to global geopolitics

27-10-2010 16:54

Politics makes for strange bedfellows. Within the framework of the events leading to the Green Wave was a face-off within the Iranian elite between one side which wanted to preserve current policies and another that was formed by an alliance between Iranian business interests and civil liberties organizations. In the second camp of Iranian capital and civil liberties, the former group hid behind the latter group. This alliance between Iranian capital and groups demanding greater civil liberties may come as a surprise to some, but it is neither a historical nor political anomaly. Many movements and revolutions have been configured through such alliances.

UG#522 - Spiritual and Social Separation

27-10-2010 15:07

This week a range of voices continue our series on separation. We start with Michael Lerner speaking on his 2006 book, "The Left Hand of God: Taking Back Our Country from the Religious Right", about the spiritual disconnection of modern US society, and how this has been both exacerbated and the exploited by an alliance of corporate interests and the 'religious right'. Next a short section of an interview with Bill McKibben. In our second hour, after revisiting the words of Charles Eisenstein, we hear from Richard Louv, about what he terms 'Nature Deficit Disorder'.

Bristol Council's preference for cars over people

27-10-2010 14:22

An example of how they couldn't care less for the blind and partially sited.
Despite all of it’s policy statements, advisors and alleged political correctness,
Bristol City council shows us it’s true colours .

Whilst out for a cycle for once I hade a camera with me so I took these photos. This place has been bugging me for a long while and here’s one reason why:

Imagine you are either blind or partially sighted. Getting around a busy city, perhaps on your way to the train station is bound to pose one or to challenges. Therefore you might think the community conscious local authority which is paid to enable citizens, in this concrete maze we call home, get around the place with the minimum of harassment.

Unfortunately this is not the case.
One minor item that may have been of use in the preservation of life and limb – like a pavement has been ignored with large immobile tin boxes taking precedence,
others have been known to labels these selfish items (in cities anyway) as automobiles.

But on a more serious - NO ANGRY - point. The council takes great heed to claim it supports minorities, regardless of class, age, gender or race and rightly so but apparently NOT to disability.

Pavements are not only important but could also be argued as essential to the blind so on a relatively new build where are they?
And what has taken there place? Green space maybe? No, a fucking car docking point.

Then of course there’s small children, parents with push chairs and other vulnerable pedestrians that may benefit.
The only good point of this lay out is that if some commuter, late for his/her train, parks too close up to an apartment front door it can’t be used.

So I’m thinking what a selfish place this is…
Hence the last few pictures of some real quality wall painting.
Cheers for reading this, I just hope you are a council planner.
