Protest and Street Theatre in Newport against NATO

31-05-2014 21:25

Roll up Roll Up, the NATO Circus is coming to town

Some photos from today's Newport Rising events in Newport City Centre. Cameron, Obama and other world leaders put in an appearance, along with the leader of Newport City Council, Bob Bright, all working together to make money for corporate warmongers by hosting the NATO Summit in September at the expense of the people of Newport and all the victims of NATO wars. Today's events, which included earlier banner drops, are part of efforts to raise awareness of the Summit taking place at the Celtic Manor in Newport.

There will be a public meeting about the Summit at 95-96 Commercial Street, Newport from 4pm tomorrow, Sunday 1 June.

Resisting Together - Edinburgh, 29th March

23-03-2014 13:51

Resisting Together Poster
Resisting Together is an event of many ideas focussed on a single aim – the dissolution of Industrial Civilization through acts of resistance. There are many activists – community, political, radical individuals, groups and movements – operating both in the open and underground; we don’t agree on everything, but at our core we all seek to free humanity from the yoke of the industrial machine, the horror-play that the civilized world acts out every day, degrading the natural world and enslaving people in the pursuit of material wealth and power.
