17-12-2012 16:55As you may be aware, our plans to host a temporary community cafe run on anarchist principles in Bristol this weekend, have been scarpered after Avon & Somerset Police decided to raid Everything Is Not OK Cafe on Friday morning; evicting the building and arresting the five occupiers.
The basic idea is that all the women and children who are concerned about the slaughter of the innocents in wars and other atrocities should remember the victims peacefully in continuous candlelit vigils everywhere as 2012 is drawing to a close and the New Age is about to begin and Christmas is approaching.
17-12-2012 12:55In February 2013 the 16th European Police Congress will be held in Berlin. According to the numbers of the responsible organiser, a publishing company for administration issues, around 1.600 participants coming from more than 50 countries attended the last congress in 2012.
Cops, politicians, enterprises and other VIPs meet there once a year to coordinate their interests. While members of the administration get free access, normal journalists and people have to pay around thousand euro for registration. Enterprises with commercial interests pay per square meter for exhibition ground. Well-known brands were present the last years.

Anti-road protestors in Bexhill were ambushed by an early start to the tree-felling on the controversial Bexhill-Hastings link road this week, but they rallied and over three successive days of direct action have put a spanner in the works.
16-12-2012 19:57For the past 6 months we have maintained a daily vigil outside the Ecuadoran embassy in solidarity with Julian Assange, WikiLeaks and the people of Ecuador
Ecuador has granted political asylum to Julian Assange. The embassy is located next to Harrod's
in Knighstbridge. London. It is surrounded by British police.
The latest in a series of solidarity demonstrations was held outside Morton Hall detention centre in Lincolnshire today. Two minibuses of people set out to let the nearly 400 detainees know that they have not been forgotten this winter. We spent over an hour moving round the perimeter chanting and making noise so that they would hear us. Some people climbed trees so that our banners would be visible to those inside.
When we got back to the main gate, prison guards and the police panicked and started shoving people off the road to make way for a Reliance transport van. Reliance are responsible for moving detainees around the detention system and to airports (although not directly from Morton Hall).
The indefinite detention of migrants has come under fire this week after the governments' own inspectors criticised the length of time people are being detained and how some detainees have "simply been forgotten". One Somali migrant has been held for 9 years after he completed his prison sentence.
It has also recently emerged that Lincolnshire could be marked for a second immigration removals centre. Officials have said that HMP Lincoln could be converted to a detention centre for migrants.
The intolerable conditions for migrants in detention have meant that unrest has frequently broken out in the detention estate over the years. The last solidarity demonstration at Morton Hall took place as detainees undertook a mass hunger strike and rooftop protest against their conditions.
