London Solidarity Protest Against G8 Repression

14-05-2007 11:53

protesters standing on the pavement by the Kempinski hotel

About 50 people gathered at the Kempinski Hotel in London on Friday, 11 May, to show their solidarity with the victims of the G8 raids in Germany last week, and to express their opposition to the G8, capitalism and all that [call]. Kempinski is the hotel group hosting the G8 Summit in Heiligendamm, Germany, next month.

The Met had 'designated' a pen on the opposite side of the street, but protesters refused to be penned in and stayed by the hotel, without entirely blocking the pavement. Some leaflets were given out and not much more happened.. well, apart from the FIT struggling to get good shots of people's faces.

"Bollocks 2 Blair" needs to be clearly defined... please help!

13-05-2007 18:12

I have been reading up on "bollocks" and have found a variety of meanings and usages.

Back in the day, around 1000 A.D., it gave reference to a small ball. Later on, in the 18th century, it referred to a priest and cuz priests talk such shite, it gave further reference to the shite that priests spoke - bollocks... and the meaning of the word continued to grow to testicles and beyond...

Advice for Hessle's party victims.

10-05-2007 17:19

It has come to our attention that the police are collaring various individuals the consider to be part of the 'riot' in Hyde Park last weekend. This is a cynical attempt by West Yorkshire constabulary to protect themselves against charges of brutality. By making arrests they are seeking to justify their over-the-top actions and win better publicity for themselves in the face of videos being released onto the internet showing their actions for just what they are.
