Physical Attacks on Squatters

07-12-2011 17:28

Empty Buildings for All
It has come to the attention of a number of squatting campaigners that there have been a number of physical attacks on squats and squatters in the past few weeks. While intimidation and harassment by bailiffs, the police, nut-jobs and private security are nothing new in the squatting world, a couple of physical attacks by “groups of hoodlums” should be brought to people’s attention. The co-ordinated nature of these attacks points to property developers/ owners employing illegal methods to keep their properties empty.

Notts Occupation: 7th Week and beyond 

Tuesday 6th December 2011

Occupy camp now in it's 7th week since setting up in the Market Square, Nottingham.

Camp getting back to it's normal routine now, after all activities surrounding the N30 trade union marches last week.

‘Occupy’ protesters reclaiming foreclosed homes in 20 cities

07-12-2011 00:22

The 99 percent movement, which has been evicted from many of their encampments across the country, is finding common cause with thousands of homeowners who are also being evicted from their homes.

Even though the movement has often been criticized for a lack of defined goals, Tuesday’s “Occupy Our Homes” action in at least 20 cities makes it clear that they are standing up to banks to reverse foreclosures.

“We’re in the neighborhood in New York City that had the highest number of foreclosure filings in 2010 to send a message that the economy is failing the 99 percent,” Vocal New York organizer Sean Barry told Raw Story from a Brooklyn neighborhood as about 200 protesters chanted in the background.

The Orwellian 'Non-Lethal' War Waged Against Peaceful Citizens

06-12-2011 13:02

Dees illustration:

Non-lethal weapons are being distributed by the West into protest zones throughout the world, as well as being utilized in crowd suppression within the borders of the Land of the Free.

The producers of weapons such as rubber bullets, tear gas and pepper spray are quick to point out that it is not the weapons themselves that are the cause of fatalities, but rather it is their misuse through faulty training. The Orwellian nature of such a statement is staggering, as the admission of lethality is actually buried in the justification. In fact, one of the main manufacturers, NonLethal Technologies Inc., states in their own search description that they are a "Manufacturer of Less-Lethal riot and crowd control products." Less-lethal is not non-lethal. Moreover, it seems disingenuous that major players in the military-industrial complex, which has been quite lethal to a large number of nations and peoples, should themselves be developers of supposedly non-lethal technology.

On The Mass Arrests In Hackney, 30th November 2011

06-12-2011 11:28

On Wednesday 30th November, some people sick of the soul-destroying
rhythms of daily life, took to the streets of Hackney. Bored by the
dull dynamics of union activities which reduce our misery to a few narrow
demands and channel and contain our anger, we decided to take control of
our situation.
