08-05-2011 23:07Refugee support groups are horrified by a deal the Australian government has made to dump 800 boat people in Malaysia, where they face detention in camps under horrific conditions. Under the deal 800 asylum seekers who make their way to Australia by boat could be immediately taken to Malaysia to have their claims processed. In return Australia will take 4,000 people already living in Malaysia as genuine refugees.

04-05-2011 14:06On November 30th 1999 thousands of anti-capitalist/globalisation activists gathered in Seattle, USA to protest against and successfully shut down a meeting of the World Trade Organisation (WTO). A large part of their grievance was that the WTO was effectively operating in secret with no reporting of the decisions it was making and the effect those decisions were having across the world. So by way of a solution a group of activists set up the Independent Media Centre or "Indymedia" for short. The idea was create a network of un-moderated, open publishing websites so people from all over the world could share news about the decisions being made in the name of globalisation and the actions that were being taken to protest against them. The Independent Media Centre was probably one of the most successful ideas to come out of the Seattle protests and there are now 180 Indymedia sites across the world in places as diverse as Japan, Israel, Kenya and Burma making Indymedia the blueprint for the sort of "Citizen Journalism" that's become so fashionable recently.
04-05-2011 01:34Having just watched the video of Charlie Veitch's arrest, which you can see here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UscFYYCKOxg - and equally sad and disturbing 'soho square arrest', which you can see here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bj4yn1RBxHs - I cannot contain my anger or frustration and so NEED to say the following stuff:
Meanwhile, three more people will appear in Bristol Magistrates Court this morning, including one charged with "Attempted Murder". It is notable that many of those charged with serious offences have been of 'minors' - i.e. those under the age of 17. It seems the young and naive will bear the brunt of the polices' judicial revenge.
Classix says: "After a prolonged battle in the courts, Classics Freeshop and the Emporium Art Gallery of 35-37 Stokes Croft face eviction anytime from Thursday 5th May.
03-05-2011 13:04If you had any doubts whether the police have too much time on their hands and are only there to protect big business, then I urge you to hear the story of John Catt. If you have reason to believe that the cops have information on you, demand it back!
03-05-2011 13:00I won't do a corporate repost as we all know that isn't permitted here but The Grauniad has on the face of it, a useful guide here to help you find out what information might be held about you in police intelligence files with a handy pro forma letter:
