We are ten years into a war on Aghanistan, 20 years into a war on Iraq and 250+ daze into the confinement without charge of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange who has done so much to expose the true nature of these wars. Wars that have no end date, no popular support and presently little visible opposition.

The date for the £ 18 million pound eviction of Dale Farm, a former
scrapyard which is now home to 90 families, has been revealed to be Monday
19th September. The date was leaked to the local newspaper by a council
Dale farm residents are calling on supporters to come to Dale Farm to help them stop the eviction. They are also calling for legal observers and human rights monitors to come down to act as witnesses. Dale Farm is only a half hour by train from London Liverpool Street Station.
The council has threatened to close roads around Dale Farm in advance of the eviction, so it is recommended that people come as many days before the eviction as possible. Also, there is plenty of work needed to prepare in advance. Sleeping space in homes are available, but please bring a tent if you can as we expect bed space to be limited to those in need. People are
welcome at Dale Farm any time. See http://dalefarm.wordpress.com/activity for details.
Please forward this callout widely, and promote our facebook event
http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=120449081388705 through social
We also highly recommend people sign up for text alerts https://smsalerts.tachanka.org/dalefarm/ and our email bulletin http://lists.ucrony.net/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/dalefarm-solidarity as we can't trust the council to not send bailiffs in before the given date.
On 19th September Basildon Council and the coalition government who are financing this will face a moral challenge to explain to thousands of people and the world's assembled media why they are choosing to make over 100 children homeless and remove them from their schools. The UN has called on the government to suspend the "immature and unwise" eviction, saying it would "disproportionately affect the lives of the Gypsy and Traveller families, particularly women, children and older people". The eviction has been condemned by a broad coalition of groups, including Amnesty International, trade-unionists, and anti-racism groups.
See you there!

05-09-2011 13:53In the midst of mechanisation and cutbacks, more and more people face losing their jobs to a machine. Banks are increasingly cutting enquiry/customer-services-based jobs as they roll out more and more cash points and automated helpdesks. Big business companies and corporations are using new technologies to streamline their operations, reaping profits for directors and shareholders at the expense of frontline staff.
Today the Transport Salaried Staff's Association, a transport workers' union, announced that 675 rail station ticket offices will be closed. These offices will be replaced by ticket machines.

On March 17th 2010, following a jury trial in Wellington, the three were acquitted of all charges. In August 2011 the NZ Crown went to the High Court to seek damages on behalf of the spy agency from the acquited defendants.
