30-01-2008 14:57When Mexican paramilitary forces shot Brad Will in the chest, killing him, his camera fell from his hands. But it didn't stop recording. It continued moving from hand to hand. Brad's camera paints us a picture of what his life was about, and what so many of his friends continue to struggle for.
Tonight at the rampART there is a screening and discussion with the film maker and indymedia activist from south america.

The idea was for people to come in and engage in whatever creative or practical skills they knew, to look at what others were doing and have a go, and to re-use, recycle or modify second hand items for free.

23-01-2008 21:38G13 survived. Agrounded Ungdomshus-Discussions cause a new civil Disobedience-Action called "BlokR" (Word game with danish "Bloker" = engl. "to blockade"); which has the aim to get harder and more pressure to politicians.
23-01-2008 11:50Seems many people seem to think rampART has closed. IT HAS NOT !
The legal process is still ticking along with a decision expected soon on whether we can have an appeal hearing. In the meantime it is not possible for the 'owner' to get a warrant of possesion so there is no immediate threat of eviction.
We'd like to remind people that the space is still available for events etc and that we have a backup space should eviction interfere with peoples plans. However, keeping two spaces open has been a major drain on everyone involved and the rampART itself is not getting the attention it deserves for the last few weeks.
