In the following interview the Anarchist Radio Berlin (aradio.blogsport.de) made with an UK-based organizer from the Reclaim the fields initiative, we talk about the planned international camp in North-Wales, the relationship of food sovereignty and the prison system, and the topic of prison abolition as such.
Just one look at today’s Ukrainian reality leaves no room for doubt that acting President Poroshenko at least has no chances to be re-elected anymore. Indeed he’s more likely to resign long before his first term is over. In such situation the main question starts not with ‘when’, but with ‘who’. Who will become his successor?

The problem of GMO growth and import is making headlines in British newspapers yet again. Prompted by the publication of an open letter by a pro-GMO researcher, Tony Trewavas, the British public instantly saw a heated response issued by Colin Todhunter, who famously criticised a speech made by a former UK Environment Minister, Owen Paterson, in Pretoria at the beginning of this year. Following the exchange of Trewavas, Todhunter and Paterson, it becomes clear that the debate is still lacking and that the language all parties use to talk about GMO doesn’t allow the public opinion develop proper tools to assess the value or danger of introducing GMOs to any market in the world.

An analysis by Media Lens of the concerted attempts to smear and discredit Labour leadership contender Jeremy Corbyn who is currently the front runner in the race to be the new Labour Party leader.
A look at a bygone Britain as seen through the eyes of an Oscar winning film. Britain at all levels is depicted as desperately holding on to class as a means of self-belief. Joe's relatives tell him to stick to his own kind, yet the toughs that beat him up don't see him as of their own class. The rank-pulling of Jack Wales tells him that it is just a different kind of war now.
10 January 2015 (the date that this article was written): Greece’s problem is more complicated than austerity, is mainly about poverty, more poverty, accelerated poverty, and then SHAME . 30 July 2015: Greece’s problem is mainly about poverty. A third Greek bailout can help, but the question will stay the same / SHAME: Has Grexit been avoided?

The violent fascist thugs of the EDL are linking up with their Hitler-loving nazis in the National Front this Saturday to intimidate attendees of the refugee solidarity event happening this Saturday in Folkestone.

Antifascists need turn up in numbers to defend Folkestone from violent fascist thugs!

The horrific murder and sexual abuse of Paige Chivers sends a chill down the spine of the nation. Rest in peace, Paige.
The horrific details of the Blackpool abuse case, and the belief amongst social workers that Charlene Downes had been visited by sixteen middle aged white men known to her father, mean the BNP should be duly investigated by the authorities. One thing is for sure, the BNP were renowned for years amongst antifascists for their cliquishness and rumoured sexual improprieties.

Horrific young fascist, and budding nightclub DJ, EDL supporter Ryann Bateman, a from North Wales, has had a racist hissy fit since learning their are hardworking British Asian staff keeping hospitals, health clinics, emergency ambulances and other sectors of the NHS staffed 24/7, blaming David Cameron for employing them. He links lifesaving health workers with brown skins to the murderers of ISIS.
We review the infamous Tuskeegee syphilis experiment and its even more murderous offshore equivalent, noting that the US government's apology to those affected did not stop it using "sovereign immunity" to block their class action lawsuit - since the deeds occurred outside of the USA. The lead attorney, Piper Hendricks shares her frustration. We conclude with an interview of Toni Bark, host of "Bought, The Movie" on regulatory capture by big pharma of CDC and the difficulty of assessment of the health risks of vaccines in light of the huge amounts of money involved.

We knew it all along, but finally it has happened. The EDL have finally given way to an openly neo-nazi resurgence they themselves helped propagate through their violent, racist street protests. National Action, the National Front and the NWI are the main beneficiaries, the nazi SDL sweeping up the NE EDL. Members of minorities who participated in the EDL have let their communities down, selling out safety for the sake of a few racist piss-ups.
