Blockade the council house – No vote today - Save Birmingham
Meet 11am Victoria Square - form groups block entrances.
Birmingham City Council shut down our public meeting - in response we are calling on a public blockade of the council house to shut down their budget meeting where the first wave of the £625m worth of cuts over six years will be voted through.
This is a call for all individuals, collectives and people around the world who are working towards the construction of another society from below to come together for an international meeting. The aim is to establish the Bloc for the Integral Revolution.

We are protesting plans for this big biomess and invite you to join us at their AGM on the 24th of April.

Worryingly short of merchandising revenue, Kev Carroll and his motley crew of losers have opened the door to the Muggy Mushrooms who Kev likes to call "splitters", to French-kiss his pimply, pock-marked arse and return apologetically to the EDL fold. From the NWI to the Casuals, to the NF and the Salford branch of the BNP to the Combined ex Forces, all "nationalists" in the UK are cordially invited to sacrificially surrender their own political identities to help maintain Kev Carroll and Hel Gower's grip on power in the most audacious British fascist backslapping exercise of all time.

We rise to support Soni Sori, an adivasi teacher, mother of 3 young children, a public spirited citizen of free India who was arrested on the 4th Oct 2011 from New Delhi, kept imprisoned under plethora of political charges, several of which she already stands acquitted of. Hers is the story of an empowered woman in India who dared to speak against the interests of Indian state and mining companies, faced emotional, physical, sexual abuse by state agents and is still languishing in jail. Her perpetrators, on the other hand, are awarded Gallantry Award.
