Hackney flats not evicted

08-03-2004 13:04

Most of the flats on estates in the kingsland area have not been evicted, and the situation has calmed down. Some unoccupied places have been smashed & boarded up by the council - I don't know whether any of these are squatters' homes, and the police say they have evicted some crack & smack houses. The council now say they will issue possesion proceedings through the courts, although they may try more DIY evictions in the comming days, especially if any flats are left unocupied.

The water rats report! ESF EXCLUSIVE

07-03-2004 00:45

Today the SWP used different people to speak at the 2nd European meeting to organises the London ESF. The green party deputy mare spoke but didn’t say anything – just like a politician. Finally, maybe we may perhaps might start thinking about the process… the was a secret smocked filled room were a real deal was done? Except this was the ESF so it was a light open room with lots of people looking on that did the deal… which maybe possibly could perhaps make the London ESF fulfil the principals of the Social forum movement. Please don’t be put off from participating because maybe, possibly, the is a chances the sects that fail to run the show maybe have noticed that they are not as essential as they always insisted.

A Tale of Two Road Blockades - Blackwood

02-03-2004 18:07

stopping machinery
Tree defenders have been regularly making small blockades on the old railiway track, which is part of the road route and passes the two tree camps. Costain and co who are felling the trees, have to keep removing them to enable access. Not to be outdone, on St. David's Day, contractors themselves erected their own concrete blockade, to block vehicle access to the tree camps!

Tree Destruction at Blackwood - Pics

01-03-2004 22:41

The whole bank will be levelled
1st March, St David's Day: Pictures from St David's Wood, Blackwood, South Wales, where Costain are building a new road to link together two industrial parks - not that there isn't road access already you understand. A suspension bridge will also be built across the valley further linking the new road to the existing ones. The pictures show the scene along much of the old railway track, however the oldest trees are in the area defended by the two camps. Local support is great, it just needs more bodies on the ground
