Starbucks have effectively caved-in on the principle of corporate tax evasion, and say they're in the process of cutting a deal with HMRC to start contributing to the cost of the taxpayer-funded infrastructure and the health and education services that their business exploits.

Anti fur demonstration at Hopkinson vintage

02-12-2012 00:55

Our first demonstration against Hopkinson vintage took place on 2nd December 2012 regarding their selling of real fur. After very successful campaigning in Nottingham Hopkinson are one the only places left selling real fur in Nottingham.Campaigners have spoken to the store regarding this before the demonstration today but after being told that they do not see anything wrong with the sale of fur we started our campaign with the first of many demonstrations to come.The demonstration had many positives with many members of the public deciding not to go into the shop after realising that Hopkinson sell real fur, and until the shop adopt a fur free policy we will continue to inform the public (and would be customers) about the cruel industry that Hopkinson are a part of.The vintage fur trade perpetuates the idea that it is ok to wear the skin and fur of a dead animal and promotes it as an acceptable item of fashion, in fact vintage fashion has had a massive influence on mainstream fashion with some designers even making clothes look "older" some people even say that this has had alot to do with real fur starting to make its way back onto the high streets.Wether an animal was tortured and murdered for its fur two months ago,  two years ago or 20 years ago, it still doesn't make the suffering and painfull death that the animal went through ok!! Therefore it is a massive disrespect to that animal for someone to profit off that death and for someone to think it is ok then to drape the skin and fur of that animal over themselves and think that this is acceptable.Watch this space for more demonstrations in the very near future.Please contact and let Hopkinson know (politely) what you think about them selling real furHopkinson21 Station StreetNottinghamNG2 3AJ Tel: 0115 837 1316Email:

The Clause 21 Growth and Infrastructure Bill Threat: More Info

01-12-2012 15:54

'If the Government gets it's way, are we likely to get more 'mothballed'opencast sites pock-marking our countryside'

On Tuesday, the HoC Growth and Infrastructure Public Bill Committee are likely to debate Clause 21 of the Bill to which we have lodged an objection.

This press release highlights what might be at stake if the Government pushes ahead with its plans to ease the means by which planning permission for new opencast sites can be given for new surface mine sites, just when the UK Coal Industry, increasingly reliant on surfaced mined coal, experiences a financial crisis and a significant decline in the UK's ability to burn coal. We may indeed be left with a pock-marked countryside as a consequence.

LAON's November Review ofUK Opencast Mine Sites

01-12-2012 14:55

LAON's 7th Review has information that a decision about the George Farm site is to be made on Monday 3/12. In addition public consultation has started at two new sites, a 10m tonne site Cauldhall in Scotland and a 1.18m tonne site at Deanfield in Yorkshire. In addition the revew has information about an existing site, Blair House in Scotland which has just been left 'mothballed' as Scottish Coal found it uneconomic to continue to work the site. It also has information about new developments occuring with The Growth and Infrastructure Bill which, if the present proposal becomes law, would mean that a Coal Operator in England who was applying for permission for a site larger than 100 hectares (there are 4 such proposals in England at present) could as for it to be decided by a 'fast - track' public inquiry system and side step having to go to the Local Authority. 


NEW 2012 SERIES: No 7                                       NOVEMBER 2012

 The way to read each entry is as follows:


Site Name, Location, Planning Authority, Position in the Planning System (either  Scoping Inquiry, Application Submitted, Application Approved) and the name of the Applicant / Operator, Size of Site

BIRKLANDS LANE, (nr .Marley Hill, Gateshead), (Gateshead: Reference No DC/11/00687/MIN) (Application) (Hall Construction Services) (275,000) (34.8 hectares)

‘Opencast, the threat returns’ (local action group) (no date)

Not a news story, but an on line petition that can be signed to show opposition to open casting at this proposed 275,000 tonne site. See

‘Birklands Lane: Why destroy what’s there when using coal for power generation purposes is becoming history? (Northern Indymedia / LAON, 8/11/12)

An objection to Hall Construction Services application for an Opencast Mine at the Birklands Lane site in Gateshead has now been submitted. The objection is based on a number of factors, the rate at which power stations are being closed or converted to burning biomass; that it is Government policy to encourage Power Generators to switch from burning coal to burning biomass; that the expected decline in the need for coal for power generation purposes is expected to drop by 34% by 2017 and how easy it is to ship any coal that is needed into the Port Tyne amongst other reason. The press release also draws attention to problems with the Growth and Infrastructure Bill now before Parliament. See

This report, in some detail, carries the news that the Officer, Mr Stephenson is recommending approval

“In his report, Mr Stephenson acknowledged the application site was "very close" to several properties and that it would be "inevitable the occupiers would experience some disturbance from noise, dust and possibly vibration". He also said the development would harm the landscape.

But, in explaining why the plans should go ahead, he said: "There is an accepted national need for coal for the production of energy, and coal can only be extracted from where it is present in the ground.

"The universal landscape and visual impacts should not be regarded as an outright bar to such developments." See


LAON has now been informed (26/11/12) that the Determination Date for a decision on this site is Monday 3rd December at 2.00 pm at Derbyshire County Hall, Matlock

‘Mothballed mine sparks concern among villagers’ (Dunfirmline Press, 20/11/12)

Scottish Resources Group, owners of Scottish Coal mothball the Blair House site indefinitely because of low prices for coal, cost pressures and thinner than expected coal seams. The site will still be monitored and supervised. However

“ Villagers are unhappy that the enormous earth mounds will remain in place and concerned that the site will not eventually be returned to its original state.”

COMMENT: Another example of the impact that the low price of coal is having on the UK Coal industry. The communities which fought against this 720,00 ex UK Coal site are now left with a huge eyesore in their midst. Those groups facing planning applications might like to bring this to the attention of their Planning Case Officer and ask them what would the implication be if such an event happened on the site they are objecting to should it get planning permission.

PCS protests at changes to working conditions

01-12-2012 12:55

Friday 30th November 2012

At 12.15 I met with staff from the Station Street Job Centre JCP who gathered to protest at the government attacks on thier working conditions.

It was part of a nationwide co-ordinated series of events included 15-minute protests to take Cabinet Office minister Francis Maude at his word, after he suggested last year union members could walk out for a quarter of an hour to "get their point across without losing pay".

So, organisers said this is exactly what they did! Of course, it remains to be seen if this sort of action is anywhere near enough to achieve thier objectives.  Personally, I think not!

A little latter, union members attended a rally at the Navigation Inn with assorted speakers in Lilian Greenwood MP.

In a statement, the PCS general secretary Mark Serwotka said: "We have been fighting cuts to jobs, pay and pensions as ministers seek to make us pay for a crisis caused by bankers and politicians. Now our members are having to defend everything they rely on to manage their working lives.

"As well as the cuts across our transport services, it is impossible to separate the plans to cut some very basic working conditions in the civil service from the Tory-led government's wider political project to drive down pay, conditions and employment rights across the economy, and we are determined to oppose it."

Victimisation of students forces UCL occupation to withdraw

01-12-2012 12:42

A student occupation at University College London (UCL) has been forced to disband after university management gave notice that they would hold three students liable for £40,000 worth of costs.

The occupation was established in protest at UCL’s plan to open a new campus in Stratford, east London. The development of the campus would require the demolition of the Carpenters’ Estate, and the eviction of hundreds of council tenants from their homes. Robin Wales, the Labour executive mayor of Newham, has defended the plans. Among his many justifications, he has said: “you find people who say it’s their chance to move to Southend.”
