“These days are ours, too”
Monday, December 15, 2008

(The following text was distributed at the student picket outside the police headquarters today by people from Athens’ Haunt of Albanian Migrants.

Italian Anomalous Wave rebellion: General Strike reports etc:

15-12-2008 14:51

There is still a lot of activity in the streets of Italian cities from the Anomalous Wave movement. Last Friday a General Strike called by several unions saw actions, demos and shut-downs all over Italy. Here are some reports from the day.
Also good news of the taking up of The Wave by the ever-expanding school students movement who held a national assembly on 7th Dec. Finally, the evicted Horus social centre in Rome was re-occupied during the General Strike! Italy, Greece, France, Germany - the different movements are still out there keeping it real! Be inspired!

Britain's Youngest Prisoners - Christmas Appeal 2008

15-12-2008 14:38

No Children in Detention this Festive Season

Dear Home Secretary as a Campaigner for Britain's Youngest Prisoners, I know that our paths are bound to cross from to time, but I should hope that at this time of the year we can put our differences aside and call a truce, on behalf of those foreign national children who are unwanted by the UK and that you intend to deport. I am appealing to you directly for a moratorium on the detention/deportation of foreign national children and their families until the new year and that there should be no children in detention this Christmas.

Solidarity with Revolt in Greece Demo - Photos

14-12-2008 20:25

At 2.30 about 80 odd people had assembled outside Dalston overground station but the police quickly tried to kettle the crowd out of the way of the public insisting we hadn't the right to assemble within given consent. I counted 5/6 full vans within sight of where we were and the police lines managed to pen in about 60 odd people curtailing any possibilities for further action, this included most of the Greeks who'd come out for the action.

Direct Action in Iceland

14-12-2008 19:10

During one of the "regular" big demonstrations
Since early this winter, Iceland has been facing economic crisis. At the same time as "regular" mass demonstrations are taking place, more radical actions have been increasing. Anarchists, socialists, other radical leftists, and just average people have started taking direct action against the government and global capitalism. Here is a summary of what has been happening in Iceland for the last two and a half months.
