Nottingham response to the killing of Indymedia volunteer Brad Will in Mexico

29-10-2006 11:57

I am writing this article to start working on a response from Nottingham to the brutal killing of Indymedia volunteer Brad Will, while filming at a demonstration in Oaxaca, Mexico on Friday. While Brad worked with New York Indymedia, these issues effect us all and solidarity actions have already taken place in New York, San Fransisco, Chile, Brasil, Canada, and have been planned to happen all over. What could Nottinghams response be? Some people from the Oaxaca region came to speak in Nottingham nearly 2 years ago when their situation grew from bad to worse. Now the situation is one of state assassins, violence and continues repression. What shall we do?

This years remembrance parade for those who have been murdered by the state.

29-10-2006 10:02

It was bigger than last year. Hardly surprising when you consider how many more mothers, fathers, sons, daughters and Grandparents have been bereaved since then.

This is always an emotionally draining event to cover.

Like last year the dignity of the families was breathtaking.

Protesters assemble, mask up...
Sorry for the late posting but this was a story that had to go up!

On Wednesday a group of masked-up white-overalled political agitators assembled by Parliament. It is unclear as to whether or not this gathering arranged with the Police as none were present to clarify the situation. After various banner waving antics (that were possibly illegal) the participants (who may have been gathered illegally) marched (definitely illegal!!!) down towards Victoria Street before occupying Methodist Central Hall for some kind of rally. Both the gathering, march and rally were organised under the noses of the Police without any intervention! Yet again the SOCPA legislation lies in tatters! Another blatant violation by political hooligans, which should have every reader of the Daily Mail Shaking with fear!

And this is not the first time!

Death in Custody in Ireland (Part II) / London Protest TODAY 28.10.

27-10-2006 23:56

Members of the Wheelock family (Martin & kevin, imc éire)
22 deaths in Garda custody since 1997 are reported in the Republic of Ireland. 4 people died alone in Store Street Station since 2001, a Dublin inner city Police Station with specially designed 'suicide proof' cells.

Terence Wheelock was one of the latter. His death and how the Gardaí treated the incident and also the bereaved family thereafter triggered an ongoing and expanding family campaign.

In the UK, official figures amount to 493 deaths in police custody since 1996. In all of these cases, no officer EVER had to face a court. Today, families and friends of the victims march in London.
