Ride out against Birmingham airport expansion this Saturday

05-05-2010 12:04

BIrmingham CIty and Solihull Council want to use £32 million of your money to move a road so that BIrmingham Airport can expand.

A1. Happy May Day, Four Times Over Already
Dateline: May Day Parade & Carnival, Parliament Square, London, UK, 14:00-17:00, Sat 01 May 10 – G20 Meltdown mobilised thousands to the Bank of England on 01 April 2009, and Election Meltdown repeated the feat on International Workers Day 2010, with four convergent May Day Parades converging outside the House of Conmens in Parliament Square for Carnival festivities. Four bosses' lackey politicians were executed in effigy, Thursday's forthcoming election was declared null-&-void, and we took the roadway for a dance-floor and held it, till heavy rain stopped play around 17:00.

Justice Not Crisis Members stand as Green Candidates

28-04-2010 11:44

Justice not Crisis, a 'direct action' housing group based in Birmingham with links to the Optima Housing Association are standing as Green Party candidates in the general election on May 6th. They are also urging people to vote for the Tories to kick out Labour, even though the occupation of land they carried out a couple of years ago was entitled the 'John Lines Homeless Village'.
