National demo for the Halesowen 4

29-01-2013 15:02

On Saturday 26th January over 200 people marched through the streets of Halesowen in solidarity with and to demand the reinstatement of four maths lectures who were fired by Halesowen College purely for their students results. However the real reason for the sackings might have more to do with the fact that all four lectures were active union members trying to improve the poor conditions they had to work in at the maths department.

We are Taxing The Bedrooms of Dead Children

28-01-2013 15:36

It was reported today that when seven year old Becky Bell died of Cancer, her council sent her family a £672 bill for her newly empty bedroom due to the new Spare Bedroom Tax on the poor.
Britain is a colder place since the passing of the Welfare Reform Act 2012, which seeks to radically change the concept of social security. The social contract is being replaced with a Victorian welfare system. Today we look at the creeping impacts of the Welfare Reform Act and how it is making the poorest in the land suffer the consequences of the crimes of the wealthiest.

Work Is The Antithesis Of Freedom.

28-01-2013 10:55

Work less to live more. What a beautiful slogan! I wonder if the one who coined it understood the unintended truth it contains, that work is the negation of life. “Eight hours of obligation is enough to exhaust a person’s energy. What he gives at work is his life, the better part of her strength. Even if the work has not degraded her, even if she has not felt himself overcome by boredom and fatigue, he leaves exhausted, diminished, with the imagination withered.” So a worker wrote several decades ago. Anyone who has worked even for just one day understands the meaning of these words. This is why the reduction of work hours has always been one of the primary demands of those who don’t commission the work, but who carry it out, and so bear its entire burden.
