Protest against Edinburgh City Council's funding cuts

20-12-2008 08:54

full public gallery
About seventy people attended the Edinburgh City Council meeting on Thursday 18th Dec 2008 in protest of the unfair distribution of the ”Fairer Scotland Fund", which would hit Edinburgh's most deprived area hardest, relative to previous regeneration funding. A banner was dropped and calls were made for Elaine Morris, the incompetent representative for the Forth area and chair of the finance meeting, to resign.
Amongst the groups and initiatives threatened with closure are new buildings costing millions - which are now left with no funding to staff and open the resources to the public.
However, 1.8m of the money allocated to Edinburgh under the grant scheme is still unaccounted for. Yet seventeen projects in the North Edinburgh area from Youth Groups to Elderly Project to Anti-racist initiatives and support networks for abused women are now threatened with closure.

Gun fears over Camden "Super Virus Lab"

19-12-2008 21:52

The Camden Gazette reported this week that a sniper from a council estate in Camden shot out the windows of an office block belonging to the Guardian newspaper, leaving massive holes in the windows. This week a police machine gun was accidentally sent to a granny. Armed police were found guilty of shooting innocent Brazilizn Jean Charles De Menezes. All this bodes badly for proposed Camden "Super Virus Lab".
