Here you have it, Riseup! Radio's second show. The weather is more confused than ever before but spring is on its way... In this show: more news on local issues and concerns. We speak to campaigners fighting against the closure of the Victoria Baths in Sneinton Market and report from the trial against 11 activists who occupied part of the Ratcliffe On Soar powerstation last April. We also ask the question 'what is direct action?' and talk about 3 upcoming days of action around Climate Change. This time we have a 100% Nottingham music line up and play tracks from Koda Cola, Polymath and some stuff collected by the Saggy-Pants collective. If you have any good tunes, or make music yourself, get in touch.. Also, you can help out by reporting from events and recording gigs or sommat. Above all, download, listen and enjoy ! :-)
