01-03-2006 22:56I'm sure someone who knows more will update on this very soon, but just to say that today the High Court ruled that the application by Hackney Council for possession of the occupied theatre + buildings in Dalston should not have been made to the high court, and they refused to rule on it.
It's now to be refered to the county court for a judgement this coming Friday.

Nottingham City Council has announced a new measure to reduce the 'problem of begging' on Nottinghams streets. A press release given out yesterday (Feb 27th) states: 'Nottingham City Council is urging members of the public to help them eliminate begging in the city by erecting signs in begging hotspots telling them to call the anti-social behaviour helpline if they see individuals begging'
The Council's 'respect for Nottingham' website states: The aim of the Respect for Nottingham strategy is to clean up the City’s streets, take an uncompromising stand against begging, street prostitution and drug dealing and demonstrate that Nottingham is not a soft touch for those bent on criminality and damaging the quality of life in the city. Interesting how they consider begging as 'criminal' and damaging the quality of life for others...

28-02-2006 03:26It' s time for us (the people who are occupying the theatre) to tell you why we are here. And why we decided to do our bit to resist the demolition of these houses, the theatre behind, and the gentrification of the wider Dalston area all around us that for years has been part of your lives.
27-02-2006 21:08The Crossrail Bill in the House of Commons, London contains in one piece every facet of the state and its authoritarian plan against the people. No elected holder of public office including the patronaged members of the UK House of Lords has spoken out against the Crossrail Bill in the way that Bethnal Green and Bow MOP George Galloway has done. Top understand why that is it is important examine the evidence of the role played by today's 'Red Baroness' Helena Keeny and her likes.
27-02-2006 15:53Pauline Hanson recently announced on news radio that her political views have been “vindicated”; she cited the overt racist attitudes of John Howard and Peter Costello as proof of her claim. Who could deny it? Hanson’s imprisonment on trumped-up charges was an act of political assassination instigated by Howard but executed by his then errand boy, Tony Abbott. Hanson’s trial and subsequent imprisonment effectively eliminated her and her party from the Australian political landscape; mainstream racist ideology was re-established in its rightful home, the white Australian conservative ultra-right Liberal Party of Howard! The world watches Australia take a giant leap backwards as Howard continues to divide the nation.
