Peace And Unity! In Our Community! - a radio piece

13-10-2007 23:47


Over 300 people came together in Nottingham today to voice their opposition against the city's gun crime and gang culture problems. The families of victims of violent crimes, such as the killing of Nathan Williams in the Meadows last year (read article) came together to call for 'Peace And Unity' and to put an 'End To The Killings'. A march started at the Forest Recreation Ground around midday and made its way to the city centre along Mansfield Road. The march was very loud and cheerful and attracted a lot of attention.

On arrival in the centre a rally started in the Market Square, with talks and speeches by members of families that have been affected by violent crime as well as people from various groups and organisations working on the issue. One of the speakers was Paula Platt, who lost her 14 year old daughter Danielle in 2004 as she walked through the St Anns area. Sarah Wallace, who lost her 20 year old son Daniel over a year ago in a stabbing in Radford, was also present and briefly spoke to us. All in all, it was a beautiful sight to see so many people coming together over this very important issue. Download the radio piece below (mp3 or ogg format) or listen to the stream.

Social Economies and Political Conflicts

13-10-2007 16:42

Most of our serious social, ecological and economic problems can only be solved bottom-up with the insight and will of concerned citizens. The challenge consists in the radical democratization of the economy. Resistance and mobilization against the policies of neoliberalism are essential. Otherwise we only put the cart before the horse and bridle the horse by the tail.

For a Future of Solidarity and Justice

12-10-2007 16:32

The European social model is an alternative to the American mini-welfare state. The irrationality of finance capitalism appears in that the stock price rises while the value of labor falls. The economy produces more every year with fewer persons. Labor is shamelessly robbed of its rights and dignity.
