Taking over the streets of Athens

Photos from the Greek general strike today, as tens of thousands of trade unionists and anti-capitalists demonstrated, bringing the centre of Athens to a standstill. The protest was perhaps twice the size of the one during the general strike of 24 February. Many locals compared it to the mass action in 2001 which defeated a government attempt to cut pensions.

Panic on the streets of London

December 10th, 2010 · posted by anon · marked as: Articles · resistance

“The overall feeling of the yesterday was anger. On both sides there was a palpable sense of gloves coming off. The crowd crackled with it throughout the day, partly built up by the excesses of the police, but most of the anger was aimed at the continual, and clear, betrayal of young people by the political class in the UK…” An eye witness report from 9th December student demonstration against the increase in fees, abolition of EMA etc, by one of the people on the streets.

Occupy everywhere: joining the dots in the student struggle

November 23rd, 2010 · posted by Fred Goodsell · marked as: Articles · resistance

After the success of the November 20th demonstration, students and workers are already gearing up for another day of mass action and walkouts, to take place on November 24th. Student activists have called for a national demonstration in London gathering in Trafalgar Square. The focus is again direct action against the government. Universities (Sussex, UWE, SOAS, and Manchester) have already gone into occupation and others will no doubt follow in the coming weeks. French students have announced plans for a solidarity demonstration at the British Embassy.

It’s cold outside – Mulled Cider and Sloe Gin

November 20th, 2010 · posted by isy · marked as: Articles · DIY sounds and images

It’s getting wintery! That means it’s time for long, windy walks in wellies, picking sloes and rosehips by the roadside and scrumping the last of the apples. At least that’s what it means for me, since two things are now different in my life: I have moved to the countryside, and I have started doing a BSc at university (meaning I am a student now, and should be rioting instead of stomping through the countryside in my wellies. But anyway.)

Refund our Future: Reflections on the invasion of Millbank Tower

November 11th, 2010 · posted by anon · marked as: Articles · resistance

During yesterday’s protest against cuts to education crowds stormed Tory headquaters. Windows where smashed and offices destroyed. As a result we can witness the capitalist system bend and buckle in its attempts to dismiss these acts of anger as illegitimate.

Amongst the 1,000s that played some role in the invasion of Millbank Tower, where workers and students from all areas of society. We condemn both the media claim that a small group of anarchist antagonists where responsible (juxtaposed by their own images showing thousands rallying around the building) as well as the notion that the students involved are part of a privileged class. The idea that working class youth are some how exempt from the desire for education is both naive and patronising.

Sickbed revolutions: personal perspectives on radical healthcare

August 10th, 2010 · posted by Fred Goodsell · marked as: Articles · Columns

I am sick again….again. This seems to be a reoccurring facet of my life. Most people probably don’t know what it feels like to be envious of someone else’s immune system. But this is not the worst I have felt and I am getting used to it now.

A Class Act: the story of a hunt sab

August 8th, 2010 · posted by Fred Goodsell · marked as: Articles

My first encounter with hunting was way back in my teens, working as a barmaid at a snooty silver service hotel. I took the Saturday morning shift, eager to fill my pockets with the extra £3.50 an hour. I remember it being fucking freezing, picking my way through the puddled car park wearing stupidly high heels, short skirt and a white blouse. Despite the drizzling rain I wasn’t allowed to keep my coat on, shivery arms holding up a tray of drinks to the young farmers on horseback. None of the ungrateful bastards said thank you.

Too posi, too preachy?

July 4th, 2010 · posted by chris 12-o-5 · marked as: Articles · Blogs · Prancer

“We’re gonna OWN THAT BITCH!”
My friend Jon is sitting braced in the back seat of a car filled with people and various musical equipment. It’s a Sunday night and we are racing down the main road in Putney chasing the number 37 nightbus so that we can get ahead of it and I can [...]
