Community Protection Officer gives Santa a ticket

14-12-2011 00:55

Tuesday 13 December 2011

Walking up Long Row in Nottingham, trying to get past the Winter Wonderland and the public involved in full-on Christmas shopping ..........

I came upon this situation.  People looked on a bit supprised.  Small children look worried & concerned. Oh and one little girl thought it was hilarious.

I don't know what the issue was, [apart from the Big Issue of course], but this Community Protection Officer clearly lacked a bit the christmas spirit we are supposed to demonstrate to each other around this time.

The community, clearly in need of protection from him. Bah humbug ... he issues Santa with a ticket.

Merry Christmas fella!!

KEN can't do it by rent stunt alone!

13-12-2011 18:04

The BBC is spreading the word for London career politico Ken Livingstone claiming that if elected mayor in 2012, he will practically revolutionise the rent system in housing. That is a good line, Ken. But you haven't shown you know what you are talking about. Unless of course Ken Livingstone is remembering the great initiative he had taken at the GLC, his bastion of pride, where he launched the series of ethicising corruption scams.

Victory! Statement on acquittal of FRFI activist.

13-12-2011 17:51

‘The law is simply and solely made for the exploitation of those who do not understand it or of those who, for naked need, cannot obey it.’ Bertolt Brecht

Over one year of relentless campaigning by the Glasgow Defence Campaign was vindicated today as Fight Racism! Fight Imperialism! supporter Joey Simons was found not guilty on all five charges relating to his arrest on an anti-cuts demonstration on 9 December 2010. Through twelve months of court appearances, and a trial lasting four days, the Crown office was unable to spin the shameless lies of Strathclyde police officers into a web of deceit sufficient to secure a prosecution by Sherriff Kerr. Cops lined up one after another to perjure themselves in front of the court, their ‘evidence’ concocted in concert and dutifully despatched; their well-rehearsed stories of rescue attempts, ‘threats to officer safety’, conspiratorial leaders, and ‘frantic’ crowds repeated again and again.

Art & Politics with Stevphen Shukaitis

13-12-2011 10:55

How can we learn from past movements and how do we move forward with their ideas
Editor of Minor Compositions Stevphen Shukaitis comes to Bristol to talk about his minor compositions project, that draws experience from past movements and looks at how to move forward in the future.

Meet the Editor of Minor Compositions – Stevphen Shukaitis

Date: Thursday 15th December 2011
Speaker: Stevphen Shukaitis
Time: 19:00
Venue:Hydra Books 34 Old Market

Minor Compositions is a research – theorizing – publishing project whose aim is to bring together, develop, and mutate forms of autonomist thought and practice, avant-garde aesthetics, and an everyday approach to politics. This draws a good deal of inspiration from history of militant research and workers’ inquiry, expanding it beyond inquiry into particular workplaces into a more general investigation of cultural labor, social reproduction, and the relationship between radical politics and their neutralization by market and state forces.

What can ongoing political organizing learn from the history of radical art and cultural politics?

For this evening editor Stevphen Shukaitis will talk about Minor Composition (and Autonomedia) as project and publication series, focusing on themes such as precarity, the radical imagination, communization, occupations, and autonomy. How do these ideas developed from within movements in one context migrate to other countries and situations? And what happens to them when they move?
