Campaign for sustainability and community values succeeds! Campaign for sustainability and community values succeeds! chocolate rabbit writes; The gates are open for green developers to come in with proposals to redevelop the Elizabeth Shaw chocolate factory, alongside the Bristol-Bath cycle path in Greenbank, Bristol. Local people have successfully campaigned to stop development giant Persimmon getting their hands on the site, demolishing the buildings, replacing them with shoebox houses and flats and moving on with a huge profit in their hands - all without considering the needs of the planet or the community. A Public Inquiry held earlier this month saw Persimmon's heavyweight barrister Christopher Lockhart Mummery, QC trying to put forward the case for big profits against the arguments put forward by two opposing parties: on the one hand Greenbank Chocolate Box community group representatives: on the other, Bristol City Council's planning and employment officers and the Council's junior barrister....One of the main reasons the Planning Inspector dismissed the appeal was that the case had been made for mixed use of the site, providing much needed employment to local people.

Peace advocates gathered on 41st Avenue in Capitola on June 26th to protest the ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan; the recent troop surge, which has resulted in greater casualities, not fewer; and the recruitment of at-risk youth by military recruiters, many of whom use lies and manipulation in order to get people to sign up. Ten people engaged in nonviolent civil disobedience and were arrested by Capitola Police when they stayed in front of the Army recruiting office doors when asked to disperse.

On Saturday (23.06.07) Auckland Animal Action did a protest against Obzee - a shop selling fur on Wellesley Street in the Auckland CBD. The shop closed up and the woman from the store left. We were just packing up when the woman from the store came back with two security guards, so instantly we started the protest back up again - not wanting it to look like we were leaving because of security. The security guards told us to leave, and we explained that we had a right to be there and protest. They threatened to call the police, and of course we told them that they were welcome to but we had a right to be there and the police wouldn't be able to do anything. About 2 minutes later the police arrived - a young male and female officer, who had a severe attitude problem. They instantly walked up to the person with the camera and started hassling her. Of course the person with the camera ignored them. The police continued to follow her around, ignoring the person on the megaphone and everyone else. Eventually the activist with the megaphone wandered up to hear what the police were saying. They told us we were annoying the shop next door and had to shut up. We explained that we had a right to protest blah blah blah. The police then started warning people against chanting. Some ignored their warning - knowing that we are allowed to chant on a megaphone. The Police arrested one activist and told them they were going to be charged with disorderly behaviour - despite her explaining that we have been through this before, and asking if they really wanted to look silly when they lose again?
Besides the annual high-profile Celebrating Sanctuary 'festival', this year's Refugee Week in Birmingham saw a candlelit vigil, organised by the Birmingham Anti-Racist Campaign (ARC), in the grounds of St. Philip's Cathedral on Friday, 22 June, to remember asylum seekers who took their own lives and to protest against the government's racist policies [call]. This was followed by African, Kurdish and Iranian live music, then the annual Refugee Sleep-out to highlight the problem of destitution that many asylum seekers suffer from. The following day, the end of Refugee Week, saw a rally in Victoria Square, organised by ARC as well, to highlight the bitter realities suffered by refugees and asylum seekers in Britain and to protest against the Home Office's war on them [call]. Meanwhile, Birmingham NoBorders issued a statement on the much-talked-about asylum amnesty, pointing out that, even when not based on racist criteria, it is not a long-term solution and often causes great suffering for those who do not 'fit in' and leads to stricter immigration controls.

Bristol Indymedia Redesign Update summary By late December 2006 the Bristol Indymedia Collective completed the first stage of a discussion to map out the possibilities for both a redesign and extension of the Bristol Indymedia model. The summarisation of this earlier discussion can be found here: Bristol Indymedia ‘Future Directions’ DocumentPhase One Progress: Phase one is now underway. On the left-hand column we have added a clearer and larger link to UK IMC so as to more clearly demonstrate that we are part of a wider IMC network, which does already include a vibrant national UK newswire. Please post national / international news without a clear Bristol / South West link to UK IMC. Extending The Regions: Bristol Indymedia has now also added Dorset, Devon and Cornwall / Kernow as new options when submitting articles. Devon and Cornwall / Kernow are not yet showing on the left hand column too, as we do not yet have specific listings under those headings as they have only just been added. So as to jump start these new regional options we are currently beginning a process of reassigning previous articles from our archives to these areas, but which were listed under another region at the time of posting.

Tacoma Really Really Free Market and Food Not Bombs this weekend!
In debate tournaments, there are rules and customs. The customs are very restrictive, like boys wear ties, and you lose if your shirt comes untucked while you are vigorously making your point. But the rules are very few. You have a certain amount of time to make your point, and a judge decides who wins at the end. So, if you were to make your point in the form of rap, that would be far from customary, but not breaking any rules. This is the point of departure for hip hop debate.

June 24 March-Rally For Immigrants Rights in LA - A Success
It seem there are not often victories to celebrate so it's seem strange when they occur seemingly unnoticed. That's exactly what's happened regarding the news that BASF have pulled out of this years proposed GM potato trial in Yorkshire, despite government consent. Back in April there was an action in Hedon near Hull The planting of the other trial, located in Cambridge
Back in April there was an action in Hedon near Hull[1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | audio | video]to demonstrate public opposition the first GM trials in the UK proposed in three years. The Hedon trial had not yet been planted and the protesters planted their own organic potatoes in what they thought was the field earmarked for the GM variety. The aim was to invalidate the experiment before it was planted and while it turned out that they had picked the wrong field they did successful demonstrate that public opposition to GM crops was as strong and militant as ever.
The planting of the other trial, located in Cambridge[1 | 2], went ahead despite local opposition and protests. However, campaigners say that it's not too late to drive home the message that "there is still no future for GM in the UK". A national 'potato picnic' has been announced for Sunday 1st July near the site of the Cambridge trial.

APEC protests film night - Perth
Many of you might know that my original name here was Lone Vet 2000; I took that name because I started my lonely journey after bush was appointed, the first time. I wrote, signed petitions, and became a pain in the ass to those who supported the war in Iraq. I was convinced we were headed towards a disaster. During the 2004 campaign, I went to the Morrison Bridge with my signs telling people what a madman we had in the White House----I was horrified by the results.
Over 50 people attended Wednesdays peace vigil from 6:30 pm. Lone Vet: Your signs are welcome at our weekly vigil. Please join us.
