No More Page 3 at University of Nottingham

07-03-2013 14:55

A campaign has begun to have UoN join the growing list of universities which have removed sale of The Sun 'news'paper (and in cases others) on campus.

The campaign hopes to join UoN to Dundee University, St Edmund Hall College, Oxford University, LSE, Edinburgh, Sheffield and Manchester Met. These university boycotts can be seen as strategic pressure points applied to Dominic Mohan, among others, who the broader campaign has asked to "take the bare boobs out of The Sun".


There has been much media interest, many MPs and promenent figures showing support, making a domino effect seem possible at this point, so long as continued pushes are made. It is in this vein, and of course for the ends in itself, that the Nottingham campaign has started.


This here is but a fragmentary glimpse of what is going on so go ahead and probe around the links attached and participate in the organising of actions at Nottingham University and beyond.

Philippine Gov’t lacks political will to go after the Marcoses

One can understand Andres Bautista’s deep frustration in wanting to abolish the Presidential Commission on Good Government, which he has headed since October 2010, although — or because — it has failed to accomplish its two-pronged mandate, 27 years after President Cory Aquino created the PCGG through Executive Order No. 1.

UG#621 - US Capitalism From Start To Finish (911 As Finance Capitalist Endgame)

06-03-2013 20:46

As we return to reading David Graeber this, we look at the origins of capitalism in USA - how the system of self-sufficient slave estates and family farms gave way to one of wage labor. Then we ask, were the events of 11 years ago the cover for a massive financial fraud? We conclude by reflecting on what these angles contribute to our understanding of 'capitalism' and the importance of personally, consciously stepping away from it.

Nottingham BNP in deep cover

06-03-2013 18:55

We’re very pleased that Nottingham BNP have started publishing reports on their branch meetings on their shoddy and garish site. These are a lot more entertaining than the mix of Nick Griffin’s begging letters and reposts of any crime story from the Nottingham Post involving black people, which was all that used to go up. The most recent report has a real gem – Nottingham BNP’s ‘underground’ activities:

"The Auk indymedia site and the activities going on at the Sumac centre (once again thanks for the inside information ‘Mole’) were again a good source of amusement and continue to entertain everyone."

It’s seriously doubtful whether they really have a mole taking part in activities at Nottingham’s social centre, the Sumac Centre, or Indymedia, otherwise they would have hinted at the juicy gossip they’d been able to pick up on. Most probably they’re just fantasising about playing James Bond, forgetting that you have to have a certain amount of charm to be a successful spy.

Given that the Sumac Centre is, according to its website, “run by Volunteers” and is “always in need of more people to help keep the Centre running”, “infiltrating” the Sumac would have to involve putting yourself forward to help run the place. Let’s hope that the BNP really are pulling pints and peeling tatties for their anarchist and left-wing enemies – helping to support an alternative to the fascist dictatorship they desire.

Likewise, the Nottingham Indymedia website is run by a collective that holds open meetings. You don’t need to be a mole to work out what’s going on – it’s all in the public domain. Sorry to smash your dreams of being the next Mark Kennedy lads! With openly organised, non-hierarchical organisations like these, it’s hard to see what the BNP would get out of infiltrating them, even if they were capable of it.

What is more worrying is that the BNP are trying to do some racially-selective social work:

"There is also need to get more involved with community projects like operating food banks for our needy etc." [Emphasis added]

This is not really anything new. The BNP have been trying to infiltrate and exploit community projects for years. Now they are hoping to emulate the successes of Greek Nazis, Golden Dawn, whose cynical “anti-austerity” measures only extend to “indigenous” Greeks.

If the BNP are reading this (which they almost certainly are – they crave the attention), we notice that you haven’t managed to find any candidates for the local elections yet. Better stop playing police spies and get back to losing deposits.
