Smash ITT. The end bit (in pictures).

18-10-2008 15:22

Back on the road into town.
So following the rural riot above the EDO/ITT factory, the protesters headed back into town. Only to discover that the Police still had not learned their lesson when it came to turning a peaceful situation into a potentially violent one. More arrests were seen and another pointless kettle was made in between the level and the lanes. Most avoided it and took their buckets and spades to the beach...

If "That One" Wins

16-10-2008 18:56

Subvert 2008 Festival: Bristol – 24 to 26 October

15-10-2008 21:04

ABC flyer
A weekend Festival of Resistance drawing together the themes or anti-prison campaigning & prisoner support, and organising against border controls and the demonisation of migrants. You don’t need to be a genius, nor an anarchist, to see the links between the two, as the number of prisoners and detained migrants rockets, as state surveillance reaches new levels of intrusiveness, all against a backdrop of global financial crisis and the start of a major economic depression.
