There are more than 2000 Tamils in Parliament square at time of me writing including many women with children and babies and many old people. They are determined not to go home until their demands are heard. Whatever happened to SOCPA legislation... Police repression remains heavy, many people have been injuried. Please go and support. Sleeping bags needed!

After their poignant visit to the border the Black Block then went a couple of street into town and set fire to a bank. Unfortunately for the Ibis hotel chain one of their outlets was situated above the bank in question.
Despite agreeing a route for the march in advance the cops decided to block the Vaubaun bridge chucking tear gas and grenades at anyone who approached their line.
Most marchers waited patiently for the cops to leave. Some threw the gas back and generally harassed the Police until the moment they withdrew.
It was sometime between 6 & 7. The cops were taken by surprise and before they could respond over 100 people had blocked a major intersection near the summit.

Over 40,000 people demonstrated today against NATO and their actions around the globe.
What is happening right now in Sri. Lanka, and what is being so effectively hidden from public scrutiny, is a brazen, openly racist war. The world must step in. Now. Before it's too late!

You've probably seen one of these disgusting fear mongering billboards - they're all over Nottingham at the moment, encouraging us to be suspicious of our neighbours. Someone obviously couldn't put up with the bullshit any longer.

The BBC just reported that 300 protesters were arrested, as criminals, for protesting against NATO, in the lead-up to the 60th ³Anniversary² of NATO. But who are the real criminals: The NATO member states perpetuating the scourge of war or the concerned activists standing up against an organization which justifies war
Yet another example of fear-spreading in the population. British Transport Police and ACPO paid for this billboard
