Friern Barnet People's Library
As an ex-resident of Barnet, book-lover and fan of occupying, squatting and doing things for free, I went along to Friern Barnet's Occupied People's Library the other day to take some photos, borrow a couple of books, have a cup of tea and inform myself about what's been going on there.

PC 2858 Dominic McGrath harasses 'anti-social youth' and Brum's Critical Mass

05-01-2013 20:32

Clearly, they don't like our Punk as Fuck tunes!
Yesterday, Friday 4th January, witnessed a themed 'Punk as Fuck' Critical Mass on the streets of Birmingham. The mass went well from all accounts, but earlier on in the day West Midlands Police and the authorities of Birmingham Cathedral conspired to move the meeting place of the mass from the grounds of St. Philip's Cathedral to Victoria Square: Birmingham Critical Mass has met regularly in the grounds of the Cathedral for over 15 years, approximately 7 of which have been accompanied by a small soundsystem.

West Midlands Police Sniffing Around Birmingham's Critical Mass

Birmingham Cathedral letter to Birmingham Critical Mass
I thought I'd post this up here even though the Facebook group appears to be the main platform where people communicate about the mass. This platform has numerous advantages over discussing issues such as this. Namely, there is a much higher degree of anonymity on here and less of a chance of them profiling us. We can also discuss some of the issues here without the narcissistic crap associated with social networking and in terms of process we can try and ensure consensus decision making is adhered to. At this point, I'd like to point out that as far as I know, nobody has the authority to make decisions on behalf of the mass in terms of where it meets or take the initiative to liaise with cops or Church officials without the consent of the mass as a whole.

The mass last night with the 'punk as fuck' theme, as it gathered in the grounds of the Cathedral, was met by cops on bikes who distributed letters. The text of the letters is viewable on the Facebook group or if you have reservations about corporate social networking sites then you can read the letters here:
