22-05-2011 10:10An eyewitness account of the revolutionary assembly now taking place in Bilbao. No apologies for writing the account in the form of a poem, this is just the way it happened. I read this last night in the assembly (I was very nervous, there were thousands of people there.)
Testimonio de un testigo presencial de la asamblea revolucionario actualmente pasando en Bilbao. No pido disculpas por presentarlo en forma de poesía, así es como ocurrió. Leí esto anoche en la asamblea (estaba muy nervioso, había miles de personas ahí.)

After one seriously wet night, followed by one lovely sunny morning, followed by another night of rain- it has been decided, NOT to move the next camping trip one week forward- to this coming weekend (as previously stated) but two weeks forward. The MET - after failing us over the weekend - promises the weather will be more hospitable then.
PEACE CAMPS FIRST ACTION IN THE YEAR OF THE GRAND RE-OPENING

04-05-2011 22:22In the madness of recent weeks, this one certainly seems to have slippered on by, at least until now.
04-05-2011 19:05UNISON and UCU are encouraged to learn that as of this lunchtime some
of our students - in particular, Performing Arts students, have
occupied the Graduate Centre at London Met in protest against the
massive cuts to courses proposed by London Met management.
They, like us, believe these massive cuts to our course portfolio -
the loss of Performing Arts, Philosophy, History, Caribbean Studies,
Trade Union Studies, .... will irreparably damage local working class
student education and the very essence of our university.
With over 50 stalls, 28 meetings & workshops, Bristol Indymedia room, Radical History Zone, a kids space, all day vegan cafe. Accessible to all. Entry free, donations welcomed.

Meanwhile, three more people will appear in Bristol Magistrates Court this morning, including one charged with "Attempted Murder". It is notable that many of those charged with serious offences have been of 'minors' - i.e. those under the age of 17. It seems the young and naive will bear the brunt of the polices' judicial revenge.
Classix says: "After a prolonged battle in the courts, Classics Freeshop and the Emporium Art Gallery of 35-37 Stokes Croft face eviction anytime from Thursday 5th May.
The media attention was high, as there had been lots of discussions in the last weeks about the Rote Flora squat and also about gentrification in generell.
Another bigger event was taking place last weekend, as several people squatted a house in the district altona, demanding a social centre "autonomes centrum altona bahnhof (acab)" and staying inside the former building of the fiscal authorities.
