It's been coming, it was in their manifesto, but it appears that the tories are now acting on their promise to criminalise squatting. We need to plan for this early, squatting has been destroyed in other countries across Europe recently by swift gov/cop action. But we have the infrastructure to make them regret picking this fight. Time to start planning.

Zimbabwe treason defendants need your help

17-03-2011 21:22

Six Zimbabwean activists are facing the death penalty for the heinous crime of watching a video on the Egyptian uprising. They need to raise $12,000 between the 12 of them. This is a lot of money, but far less in Europe than in Africa - perhaps we can help them out? Obviously there's a lot of donate-able causes right now what with Japanese relief efforts, UK cuts activism, etc etc etc. But given the usual shit showing from the corporate media, I just wanted to make sure people know this is happening and how to donate.

The Japanese Catastrophe, Nuclear Power, and Capitalism

Japan's miltary is desperately dumping sea water onto nuclear reactors
Whenever a natural disaster occurs - be it a hurricane, an earthquake or tsunami - the immediate impact is horrible enough. But the extent of the crisis which develops out of it is something else altogether, and it always reveals stark truths about the capitalist system.

Uk Uncut Turning Banks Into Libraries (Shhhhhh!)

17-03-2011 11:22

Turning banks into libraries, Shhhhhh!

On Saturday 19th March Bristol Uk Uncut will turn a bank into a library.

We’ll be having poetry readings, story time, and educating people on the actions of the banks and the ways in which they can and should contribute more to repairing the damage caused by their negligence and greed.

So bring a good book, a poem, library/librarian signs and equipment, banners and flyers, cakes (?) and sweeties, and as many people as possible. Engage with the public and bank staff, stay safe and have fun.


The meeting place is in front of the Bristol University Students’ Union, Queens Road, Clifton right in the heart of LibDem MP, Stephen Williams’s constituency. (Right near to bus routes from City Centre and Bristol Temple Meads station.)

We’ll be meeting at 11am, then moving onto our target location.

Why We Are Taking Action

In 2007, years of irresponsible lending, rash and reckless speculation and a lack of regulation in the banking sector came to a head, causing a global financial crisis and subsequent recession that led directly to the current program of massive cuts.

Several banks were saved from collapse by the government; the National Audit Office reported that the amount of public money used to bail them out reached almost £1tn at its peak. Yet the City continues to reward itself.

The bailed-out Royal Bank of Scotland has just handed shares worth £28m to nine of its top executives in the latest round of multi-million pound bonus awards by the high street banks. If that’s not disgraceful enough, Barclays have just announced pay-outs for its top five bankers amounting £110 million.
