We must not ignore the Cameron government’s attack on disabled people

16-03-2013 00:55

On the 30th November David Cameron was booed as he came on stage to turn on the Witney Christmas Lights. You can watch a very funny video of him trying to drown out any criticism by awkwardly getting the crowd to cheer everyone from themselves to the Queen below. When there’s some background heckling during the countdown he appeals to the crowd to “come on, shout louder!”

Catt judgement leave police intel gathering practices in tatters

15-03-2013 21:11

John Catt, who says "Put an end to the 'Big Brother' police state."

For those of us who have spent many years fighting excessive and intrusive surveillance of political protest by the state, the victory of John Catt in the Court of Appeal this week was especially sweet. The judgement rules that the gathering and retention of information about John Catt’s political activity was an unlawful breach of his right to a private life, and leaves police intelligence gathering practices in tatters.

Court Solidarity: No Dash for Gas Sentencing

14-03-2013 14:56

The 21 activists from No Dash for Gas who shut down EDF's West Burton gas fired power station for a week and then fought off EDF's £5 million lawsuit are being sentenced at Nottingham Magistrates Court at 10am on Wednesday 20th March.

Some defendnts face possible prison sentences.

Supporters are invited to come down and show solidarity outside the courtroom from 9.30am.

On Wednesday 20th March, most of the twenty-one campaigners from No Dash For Gas will be sentenced for their part in a protest at an EDF power station. There is a possibility that some of them may be jailed. If they are, we will stand with them.

Last year they abseiled into the flues of the West Burton gas-fired plant and lived inside the chimneys, blocking the plant's scheduled opening the following day and stopping 20,000 tonnes of CO2 over the course of their week-long occupation. They were incredibly brave, they did what they did in the name of climate justice, and now they need us.

If they receive jail sentences it will be a turning point for our movement. It will be the first time that climate campaigners have been jailed in Britain, and we will mark that moment.

Sentencing has been scheduled to coincide with the budget, no doubt in the hope that the media will be distracted. But we won't be.

If defendants are jailed, there will be a protest vigil outside EDF HQ in Victoria, London.
