Solidarity demo with Russian LGBTQ activist facing deportation

09-12-2013 18:08

A crowd of more than 150 people assembled around the UKBA offices in London Bridge. We spoke to Ira to show her how much support there is for her and others in Yarl’s Wood. Almost £100 was raised to be passed on to other detainees for phone credit as a lot of them are completely isolated. If you would like to donate online for detainees in Yarl’s Wood or to the campaign please send a message via the Irina Must Stay facebook. We are thinking of holding another demo on Saturday 14th Dec at the Home Office or Yarl’s Wood – please follow the twitter @irinamuststay to keep updated. Thanks for your support!

#copsoffcampus protest attacked by police, with yet another mass arrest

06-12-2013 01:21

In the latest of a series of mass arrests, (the data-mining and extra-judicial punishment tactic recently favoured by the Met), around 36 people were arrested at the student #copsoffcampus protest this afternoon. Almost all the arrests were for ‘breach of the peace’, and many are being released in the small hours from far-flung police stations in Bromley, Croydon and even Sutton.

Disconnecting the police state: Sabotage@Vodafone

29-11-2013 11:48

The night before last night we attacked the electronic communication net in Berlin (Germany). Our act of sabotage took place at a Vodafone radio tower and is meant as a symbol against total surveillance by governments, secret services and transnational corporations. Vodafone was chosen because it is eagerly engaged in cooperating with the british secret service GCHQ. GCHQ cooperates with the american secret service NSA. And NSA in turn cooperates with german secret service BND. Secret services collect patterns of normality and compare particular behaviours in order to find out if you could plan something deviant before you know it yourself. The collaborations of secret service industry and the industry's secret services secure the conditions of profit and power for both of them.

20-11-2013 21:54

On Monday 11th November, Camden Council voted to introduce a draconian new licensing scheme to tightly control busking and street performance in a controversial move that will likely change the face of the popular tourist destination by introducing a heavy-handed ban on spontaneous music from any public area.
