EU deal with Greece betrayal of OXI

16-07-2015 03:33

The die has been cast. The Geek prime minister Tsipras, who won the elections
because of his promise to make an end to Trojka austerity measures, has capitulated,
accepting the hardest EU deal with Greece ever. Shame on him and his party
Syriza, which has lost every credibility. It's a horrible betrayal of OXI, plunging
the Greek people in still worse misery. People of Greece, fight for Freedom!

Banner drop from inside
On the 26th of June 2015, members of the Mental Health Resistance Network and Blac Banner Collective @blacbanner disrupted the launch party of the so called Living Well Hub in Streatham Job Centre.

Mass Sleepout in Solidarity with Newport's Homeless People

26-06-2015 06:52

Police are harrassing, bullying and arresting Newport's homeless people even more than usual, telling them that they will be clearing them out of Newport. They are using the 1884 Vagrancy Act and imposing impossible bail conditions. This stinks of a clean-up ready for the opening of a new shopping centre in November. A mass sleepout has been organised so that we can help these exceptionally vulnerable people.

SCHOOLBOY BOMB PLOT NOT TERRORISM @edlnews @misscheeky666 @ant1fane @leejasper

22-06-2015 15:25

News today has emerged of a potentially devastating terrorist plot hatched by two Tyneside schoolboys (15 at the time), who were planning a series of deadly bomb attacks, having purchased bomb-making equipment on the internet. Inspired by Raoul Moat and Taliban murder videos, the two were noted to have chanted the far-right nationalistic chant "no surrender", and hated Jews and black people. No mention of Islam as a motivation - not deemed terrorism by the media.

HITLER SALUTES AT DUDLEY FAR RIGHT MARCH #antifa #edl @edlnews @misscheeky666

13-06-2015 15:16

The usual crowd of EDLers and associated far right nutjobs gathered in a car park in Dudley to march un-noticed to a deserted park to give speeches to fellow fascists, chanting the usual range of racist and Islamophobic chants including "if you hate p*kis, clap your hands". Not only did the police fail to take action. They also turned a blind eye to blatant Adolf Hitler salutes.

Fighting Sanctions

06-05-2015 21:51

Nobody has a closer view of the effects of benefit sanctions than advice workers. Helping people with benefit issues has always been a daily feature of our job, but in addition to pestering the job centre for answers and submitting appeals and preparing evidence for the appeal hearings, we nowadays have to do more to make sure the claimants don't starve or become suicidal before we get the problem solved. It is impossible not to be disturbed by the brutality of official actions and attitudes, and so three of us in Rochdale decided to take part in the Week of Action Against Sanctions.

EDL Divisions Switch To The National Front @edlnews @slatfascists @slatukip #edl

28-04-2015 23:24

Whilst some might view the disintegration of the EDL as a positive step for British politics, the wholesale departure of entire divisions to the steadfast white supremacist territory of the National Front (northern and southern sectors) should set alarm bells ringing for antifascists. Once the dodo of the British far right, the NF are increasing their grass roots recruitment.

Thanet EDL Joins National Front En Masse - @edlnews @misscheeky666 @slatfascists

28-04-2015 23:06

The EDL is rapidly fading, but is, in many regions, being replaced up and down the UK by the openly nazi National Front. Headed by violent fascist thug and online racist troll Gaz "Pat Riot" Field, Thanet's EDL Division has already jumped ship and left the EDL and joined the National Front, warming to their white power message. Yorkshire's EDL division is going to follow suit.
