19-10-2005 07:05Should we mention how concerned media magnates are in the age of free information? Blogs, free presses and numerous other independent media groups, all have ultra-right regimes jumpin'. They cannot tolerate real free speech and the 'voices' of protest and dissent. Congratulations to all the people of the world who cherish their rights and freedoms – we salute you! All your combined small voices have become a deafening roar – the new sedition laws in Australia are an indication that you have been heard to the extent that you require silencing – the nefarious forces are on the run!

17-10-2005 16:47The EU Development Ministers are meeting in Leeds on 24 – 25 October at the Queens Hotel. A protest has been called by local groups for 4-6pm, Tuesday 25th in City Square. They are calling for a thousand people to take to the streets against the EU's neo-colonial policies in Africa and across the global south.
The free shop in the front garden drew lots of curious people off the street, and some were flumoxed that they were not being asked to pay anything. People brought goods along, and picked up some really useful stuff – including a record player and an electric guitar!
Inside, “Broad Bean” internet was busy all afternoon with local children making the most of the facilities. We may be looking to put more computers downstairs to cope with the demand. The 'Kranks' bike workshop was a real hit, lots of people came along with their bikes and everyone helped each other fix them – a really excellent skill share session. Even a double-buggy that a local family brought in got fixed up. Ideas for future projects include bike trailers, tricycles and even bicycle-powered washing machines.
The day ended with a hearty meal from the People's Kitchen which had been filling the centre with mouth watering smells all afternoon. Everyone tucked in, and enjoyed chatting to their neighbours.
We were really pleased at the diversity of people who came to use the ASBO and hope that this day was just a start for a really exciting new project. We hope to have more and more stuff happening at the centre: look out for a 'Recycled Art' workshop coming soon. If you want to use the ASBO space then email us at: email@example.com
