On Monday 26th September, the trial of the George Fox 6 commences at Lancaster Magistrates Court. Six student activists face charges in a three day arising out of an action that took place at Lancaster University in September 2004 where protestors had gone into the George Fox building at the university to hand out leaflets and talk to people at the "Corporate Venturing" Conference - a networking meeting for multinational corporations. Speakers at the conference were drawn from controversial arms manufacturer BAE Systems, Shell and other companies the six say have 'long histories of human rights abuses and environmental destruction'. Police attended and told the protestors they were doing nothing wrong, but some months later they received summonses through the post. The defendants are seeking support at the trial.
The thing speaks for itself.
16-09-2005 19:06- BE A PART, DON'T BE APART
This message is a call for YOUR participation into the 2005 edition
of the Hackmeeting which is taking place this October at Menorca (Spain).
We are looking forward receiving proposals for nodes of
work/activism/difusion/conferences and, as is getting usual, a network
of activities and encounters in and around hacktivism, cyberspace,
telecommunications and its technopolitical dimensions, during a full
(and free) weekend.
We've switched from the traditional call4papers to the call4nodes where
the attendants are not restricted to just papers but to a wider range
of media (workshops, conferences, 360º tables, expositions, posters, etc)
that build-up the so-called nodes.
