Protests against workfare will be taking place in 35 (and counting) locations tomorrow as part of a National Day of Action called by Boycott Workfare. For the latest details of all protests visit their website at: http://www.boycottworkfare.org/?p=359
Despite Chris Grayling's humiliating climbdown on workfare this week, the battle is far from over. The government have not scrapped workfare sanctions. They have removed some sanctions from one of the five schemes.
Just like before, we need to show that companies profiting from forced labour that is not acceptable. Under the Work Programme claimants can be forced to work in private companies for up to six months or face the poverty and possible homelessness that benefit sanctions bring.
02-03-2012 14:07In the evening of February 28, 2012, a double blind experiment was performed on the political power structure of Europe. Its purpose was to determine whether a specific spying attack was still ongoing after an apparent changing of chairs in the hierarchies, and its result is technically positive. The recent assault against Occupy London appears to be the grotesque response to the measurement.

28-02-2012 15:31Although there are tons of moans you can have about Occupy London, it's sure as hell depressing to see the bile, spite and joy people have been sticking up on blogs and media articles cheering on the eviction. Is it just London or also the rest of England that's become so servile, uncritical and miserable?

27-02-2012 02:30I recently sent this article to UK Indymedia but in my haste I left out a section near the bottom which makes the title far more understandable.
26-02-2012 14:34Ethical human rights, development and globalization could well be freedom's last hope. Many human rights have been left out of New Zealand's human rights law. This article looks at two omissions, children's and family rights, which had terrible social consequences.
Medea Benjamin of CODEPINK was recently deported from Bahrain. She travelled there with Witness bahrain, an international solidarity movement that was set up to monitor and report on human rights abuses, collective punishment and suppression of Arab Spring democracy activists in the Kingdom, as the struggle approached its first anniversary.
In this interview she discusses the 'samud' (steadfastness) of the women she met, the arming of the Kingdom by Western Imperialists, and the need to take action against the companies who sponsor and promote the F1 Grand Prix which is set to take place in Bahrain in April. Also worthy of note is her account of how policing is undertaken by foreigners, who are loyal to the king and not the people.
