16-08-2008 16:02This PDF speaks for itself. I thought I'd be nice and share.
Note Climate Camp '07 nearly twice as big as the next biggest thing (Notting Hill Carnival), in personnel, but not cash apparently.
16-08-2008 10:44The climate camp was in many respects a remarkable watershed in the policing of mass public protest. Even under the spotlight of the mainstream media, police abuse of power was overt and unwavering.

16-08-2008 10:41Amadeu Casellas participated in the recent European prisoner hungerstrike that saw 500 German prisoners refusing to eat in protest against their conditions and is now continuing the hungerstrike until death or freedom. Many anarchists in the prisons joined the common hungerstrike in total defiance of confinement itself and actions in solidarity occured 'outside', including in Canada, the burning of a police truck outside a courthouse.
16-08-2008 00:24An expose of the video the Daily Mail's Sam Greenhill has been promoting as part of his warmongering efforts that supposedly shows a female Georgian reporter named Tamara Urushadze getting shot.
AMW expresses concern that the investigation's decision has been almost completely ignored by the mainstream British press, the sole exception being Guardian correspondent Rory McCarthy. This is surprising given its life-threatening implications for all journalists reporting from the occupied Palestinian territories.
15-08-2008 11:52On May Day this year in Iran, two brave women - Sousan Razani and
Shiva Kheirabadi - participated in open celebrations of the
international workers' holiday.
The regime considers this to be a crime and the women were arrested.
They have just been sentenced to 15 lashes apiece, as well as four
months in prison.
14-08-2008 23:23The Italian Government reacted angrily at a report in Famiglia Cristiana, a Catholic magazine that Fascism was returning under another guise. The Vatican also distanced itself from the report. Antonio Sciortino, Director of the Paulist weekly said he was surprised at the reactions because every citizen should be allowed to assess what the government does “In a normal country” he added “This is part of the free exchange of opinions”
Austrian Animal Rights prisoners, Chris Moser and Martin Bulluch appeared in court for a bail hearing. Sadly, Martin has been remanded back into custody, but Chris Moser has been granted bail!!!!
14-08-2008 12:27We had a phone call offer last night from someone calling themselves Steve saying they could pick us up for the demo in Derby this weekend.
13-08-2008 23:49Two fitwatchers were kept in custody for five days after taking photographs of the police at the front gate of the camp.
13-08-2008 17:21There will be a demo in Manchester on 16 August, in response to the death of an Iranian refugee who hanged himself on 5 August after being evicted from his home by the racist British Home Office.
