02-10-2008 15:28This month Matt makes us a lovely pasta dish with some garlic bread and we share stories from our community. Ali from the Bonsai project sings us three songs and Tinman plays tunes from locals Metaphi, C.Shamanic, Kamal and the Freakcullector. Sam brings us up to speed on her recent high seas piracy in Ireland, Tom gives us details of upcoming events in the Nottingham Student Peace Movement. Jacque recounts last months Sumac debate and gives us the details of future discussions. We get a description of the talk Roberto Perez recently gave which is now available to download from the Riseup site. We hear about the vegan skillshare and the free food giveaway in town. Finally Tinman puts in an idea about an energy saving inspired by his housemates.

01-10-2008 14:30Show your solidarity with the total refuser Jan-Patrick!
The German federal armed forces will draft Jan-Patrick on the first of October. He should go to the air force instruction regiment in Strausberg (near Berlin). He will enter the barracks voluntarily but he will refuse any command. We expect, that he will be arrested immediately. First of all just for a few days, after one day of interruption it is likely that he is sentenced to federal armed forces internal maximum penalty of 21 days- in the worst case a couple of times.
To be arrested in the German army means 23 hours a day in a solitary cell, once a week one hour visiting time and -if you are lucky- boundless access to your post.

29-09-2008 12:27With the USA signing deals left, right and centre with the UK, Czech Republic and Poland to site elements of its "Nuclear Missile Defence Shield" - or Son of Star Wars programme - in those respective countries; with the British parliament voting last year to replace its submarine-based Trident nuclear weapons system; and with recent US and NATO support for Georgia and the Ukraine, it should come as little surprise that Russia has announced plans to upgrade its own nuclear weapons systems, putting even more strain on the now beleaguered Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). Hence, Bush, Cheney, Brown, Blair et al have managed to restart the Cold War. Well done, gentlemen.
