October 1st - Neo-Nazi March in Leipzig, Germany Stopped!

02-10-2005 17:49

The Hamburg-based Neo-Nazi leader Christian Worch registered a demonstration for the 1st of October in the city of Leipzig, Germany. His troop of 150 supporters barely managed to make it to the starting point of their demonstration. Due to a successful blockade of the starting intersection by 800-1,000 Antifas (anti-fascists), the police sent the Nazis packing after four hours of waiting in the rain.

The Nursery Social Centre Birmingham

29-09-2005 19:57

The Nursery at 1 Bournbrook Road, Selly Oak in Birmingham was shutdown by Birmingham City Council and left empty for two years. The council shut the community nursery down and handed it over to its Economic Development Department (E.D.D). E.D.D. are a private company who sell our public property to the private sector. There is no public consultation about this process. Local projects from council nurseries to sports centres are being closed and sold off to the private sector for re-development across the city.

Here's a very short intro to a longer film about the Nursery Social Centre. Sorry I haven't got round to encoding it with an open source codec yet. If you have any problems playing the film in it's Mp4 format download vlc player - an open source player:

"Ode to the cleaners!" - A local perspective after the G8.

29-09-2005 11:42

So, who did tidy up then?
It is now the 20th of July, and the big hype is over. Most of the activists were quick to leave, a few stayed to clear, tidy up and reorganise the spaces and to take on responsibility in fulfilling promises made by other people.

Techies top cops' terror profile

23-09-2005 09:25

Allo allo allo - is that an RS-232 cable, sah?

If you think that the police's profiling of terror suspects is something that only happens to other people - think again. Today's panicky Plod doesn't seem to be very discriminating at all. And you could be next.

Techie David Mery has published an account of being arrested, and having his computers confiscated, because he happened to be wearing a rucksack on the London Underground the day after the 27/7 bombings. Or as phone blogger Russell Beattie put it -

Rita phone your chums.

22-09-2005 17:59

this is what it looks like from your moon base
Rita has just entered the history books, she is a 5.3 hurricane. If her eye hits land everything underneath will be frozen, but before that you are about see Katrina style rain and destruction in Texas.

"apocalypse for the pay check heads". At present there is a 100 mile tailback on the freeway, traffic is moving at 4 mph Rita is moving at 9mph.

So the state and government are making pretty much the same mistakes. We need not. Houston indymedia have found a suitable shelter building.

Be part of a radio revolution

19-09-2005 17:50

rampART radio is an internet radio station which was orginally set up to provide independent coverage during the London European Social Forum held in October 2004. When the ESF finished rampART struggled on putting out daily news and events listings, along with some of the best revolutionary tunes and parodies you are likely to come across anywhere on the net. Over the last year the station has had it's share of up's and downs, including a month of down time when we lost our ADSL internet connection after the post office decided not to deliver any more post (including our phone bill). During the G8 in July, rampART radio provided 5 days of live up-to-the-minute coverage and enjoyed it's highest ever audiences as the stream was rebroadcast around the world. rampART radio also played a role in covering the protests against DSEi and even the London bombings after the G8.

Now, almost one year since it was created, I propose to kill rampART radio.

Ok, not exactly kill but certainly a rebirth in a very different form.
