October 20th Anti-Austerity Demonstration
24 Oct 2012
Saturday?s October 20th "March for a future that works" demonstration organised by the TUC saw over 150,000 out on the streets of London to protest the government’s cuts and austerity measures. It’s been almost a year since the TUC leadership tried to look like they were actively opposing the cuts and well over a year since the last big demo. The organisers sent out a somewhat mixed message by first calling for a general strike but then allowing Ed Miliband a platform to announce he’ll carry on cutting where the Tories leave off if elected.The demonstration also saw hundreds of black bloc and Boycott Workfare activists target Oxford Street stores that use workfare and tax avoidance, whilst DPAC activists successfully blockaded Park Lane.On the Newswire: October 20: The view from Oxford Circus | #Oct20 150,000 on TUC demo PHOTOS | unions cuts march and london anti-workfare actions – pics & report | Oct20: we got work to do … | March For A Future That WorksPrevious Features: SchNEWS: One Strike and You’re Out? | "You Can Shove Your Rubber Bullets Up Your Arse!": ‘Total Policing’ of N9 Demos | Anti-cuts protesters take over London | March 26th – All out against the cuts
Plebs protest at Conservative Party Conference
11 Oct 2012
The Conservative Party Conference came to Birmingham this week and was met with almost daily protests from angry plebs. But whilst the protests where going on outside, inside the class warfare was turned up a notch after it was announced that a further 10billion will be cut from welfare and that the government plan on scrapping workers rights in exchange for offering them "shares" by their employer. These rights such as protection from unlawful dismissal, flexible working time and maternity leave have been won by workers struggling hard over the past 100 years for a decent standard of living. To add salt to the wound, the announcement delivered by George Osborne came with the Orwellian Doublespeak "workers of the world unite". Well if that?s what he wants ?On the Newswire: Welcome The Tories To Birmingham | Lobby Tory Conference re Ballymurphy Massacre | Picket the Bigots – Tory Party Conference | Badger Cull Tory Conference | Hunt Saboteurs protest against badger cull at Tory Party Conference | Remploy Demonstration At Tory Party Conference ? 8:30am Wednesday | Tory Conference Demo | Badger Cull Campaigners to Target Conservative Party Conference | Sacked Remploy Workers Demonstrate For Their Jobs
Week of Action to Ground the Drones
1 Oct 2012
To coincide with International Keep Space for Peace Week (from 6th – 13th October) the Drone Campaign Network is calling a week of action on the growing use of drones.While over seventy countries now possess drones, so far only the UK, the US and Israel are known to have used armed drones. The UK has launched over 300 drones strikes in Afghanistan but there is little public information about these strikes. Israel regularly launches drone attacks in Gaza and the US has been using drones in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen. It is suspected, but not confirmed that US drones have also undertaken strikes in Mali and Philippines this year.Protests against the growing use of drones have taken place in Pakistan and Yemen and protests have been growing in the UK and the US over the past year.

Campaigners mobilising to fight ‘hundreds of new roads’
25 Sep 2012
Campaigners are hoping to kick-start opposition to ‘hundreds of new roads’ with actions in Twyford Down and Hastings this weekend.Government and local councils are planning to spend billions of pounds on dozens of new roads over the next few years, and new ‘growth’ funds and devolved spending powers for local councils threaten to add hundreds more disastrous projects to this list.In the 1990s, what was in effect a popular uprising [ 1 | 2 | 3 ] brought Tory plans for ?the greatest road-building programme since the Romans? to a screeching halt.Could this weekend’s actions be the beginning of a new upsurge of anti-roads protests?On the newswire: Local residents camp & rally against Bexhill-Hastings link road | Twyford anniversary action | Stop the Road!
