Fascists score a win on the streets of Liverpool

22-02-2012 14:01

On Saturday, , a mob of between 150-250 fascists ran free on the streets of Liverpool. As well as hounding a tiny demonstration against police brutality out of Derby Square, they were able to turn an Irish Republican march way from the City Centre. Yesterday was a definite win for the far-right and underlines the need for a serious re-evaluation of anti-fascist organisation.

I've said on numerous occasions before that we're seeing the return of the traditional fascist tactic of controlling the streets. The British National Party is in electoral decline, whilst the English Defence League's limited strategy of having people shout in a police kettle has disenchanted followers in much the same way as the left's penchant for A to B marches. However the splinter groups, in particular the Infidels, offer those up for it a more genuine chance to run amok whilst being free to be as violent and racist as they like due to the lack of electoral ambition as a moderating force.

Keep Roger Franklin FREE !

22-02-2012 10:55

Roger Franklin, 84, a lifelong peace campaigner from Stroud is facing a £460 fine from Bristol Magistrates Court for refusing to fill out the Lockheed Martin administered UK census last year. This is a call out for supporters to contribute £2 towards the fine.

Roger, now 84, is a life-long peace campaigner from Stroud. He refused to fill in his UK Census last year because Lockheed Martin, the firm administering the Census, is the world’s 2nd-biggest arms manufacturer. contributed to the weaponry that rained death on Gaza in 2008-9. And their American subsidiaries trained the interrogators at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo.

Earlier this month Bristol Magistrates’ fined Roger £460, which he refuses to pay. It would be a demonstration of solidarity if each of us paid a TINY AMOUNT of the fine for him. Public exposure for LM, and they won’t be invited to run a census again. Can you pay just two pound?

Write a cheque for £2 HMCTS (HM Courts & Tribunals Service), and post ASAP to Monica Jones, ‘Wisma Mulia’, Bridge Rd, Frampton on Severn GL2 7HE for bulk mailing to the court. You can also send a statement of support which can be used for the media. Another Census-Refusenik, John Marjoram, goes on trial in May

Occupy London lose court case - call out to help us resist

22-02-2012 09:59

Our appeal to keep the camp outside St Paul's Cathedral is thrown out by the Court of Appeal.

Occupy London group challenged the High Court's decision which found the City of London Corporation's action to evict the camp was "lawful and justified".

Justice Lindblom granted the City orders of possession and injunctions.

The decision of the three judges to refuse the application means the corporation is now free to enforce the possession order and evict the camp.

Birmingham Food Not Bombs would like to issue a statement of solidarity to all groups and people around the world who have been arrested for sharing food with the hungry.

There has been a call out for people around the world to consider sharing free meals in celebration of our right to food on Sunday 1st April. Food is a right not a privilege.
