#OccupyLSX had announced an action at 3pm at Piccadilly Circus. They set off with the samba band and minutes later a flare was set off inside Panton House, Haymarket, whilst a banner was hung from the roof. Outside protestors challenged some plainclothes cops in the crowd, after which a 'bubble' or kettle was set up, apparently with more plain clothes cops trapped inside it.

See report from Occupy SLX below.

Syria: The orwellian "Responsibility to Protect" used to justify all out war

30-11-2011 15:06

The concept of “Responsibility to Protect” (R2P) essentially posits that a country’s independence is not a right and can be taken away by the international community when the need arises. The international community under the R2P paradigm has the responsibility to intervene in any independent country in order to protect that country’s citizens.

The Syrian Arab Republic now faces the “Responsibility to Protect” (R2P) as a threat. R2P is being prepped to be wielded as a weapon by Washington and NATO. It is a neo-imperialist device under the cover of sheep’s skin that appropriates the language of humanitarianism. The plan is to oust President Bashar Al-Assad from power and install a new client government in Damascus.

Massive Public Sector Strike, But How Could We Win?

30-11-2011 14:27

Around the UK, an estimated two million public sector workers are striking for a day against pension cuts which would make them work longer, contribute more and receive less when they eventually retire. The strikes are both entirely justified and a great illustration of working class power, yet industrial action must be greatly expanded if the ruling class attacks are to be overturned.

N30 Strike: Oldham this morning

30-11-2011 12:55

None of the council or government buildings were closed today, but all were running with drastically reduced staff and most had pickets outside.

There were pickets outside Henshaw House (local council offices) near the bus station, Oldham County Court, the council car park at Queen Elizabeth Hall, and the central library. The county court stayed open, as it has done during previous industrial disputes, because the judges had turned up to run hearings. Also the security staff and court ushers, although they are members of PCS, are not in a public pension scheme as they are employed by Mitie, a private company.

At the job centre, the person on the desk told me that 120 out of 150 staff were on strike. Like the county court, their security staff are employed by a private company, in this case G4S, so they were not taking part in the strike.

At the library, only the management had turned in. All the ordinary staff, members of GMB, were on strike.

The unelected local government of the City of London are the defenders of the capitalist elite - the corporations and banks which are wrecking the world and destroying peoples lives. They are also planning to evict an anti-capitalist camp for the "crime" of exposing just how corrupt and evil the international banking and finance system is!

Strike: All power to the 99%

30-11-2011 08:55

Strikes and Pickets started early this morning at their workplaces. In City of London there has been a banner drop in Liverpool street station stating "All power to the 99%", accompanied by a band and the Electricians have started picketing their work places. Dave Prentis of UNISON said earlier that it..."should be the richest people (bankers) not the poorest workers bailing out the economy" which sums up the anger felt today in schools, college, Universities and all public workers across the country. The biggest strike held in the UK for decades means that 2.5 million are on strike along with 200,000 workers in Northern Ireland and 300,000 in Scotland.
