Festival contra la violencia institucional
Last month veteran social justice campaigner John Minto delivered the 2007 Lincoln Efford Memorial lecture to the Workers Educational Association in Christchurch. The presentation was entitled Race, sex, class – and the greatest of these is class and analyses the attacks of the neoliberal governments of the 1980s and 1990s on workers from a variety of perspectives. The conclusions Minto draws are interesting and thought-provoking, as are the examples of the possibilites for resistance and the creation of alternatives that he gives.

BREAKING NEWS: Kenneth Foster's pardon decision delayed
A lot has changed since 9/11, mostly all for the worse. When I took the commuter train from Baltimore to Washington, D.C., on the morning of Aug. 7, 2007, “Big Brother” knew I was on it, since an ID is needed to buy a ticket. When I got to D.C., “Big Brother’s’” cameras watched me get on and off the Metrorail. When I tried to videotape a demonstration at the DOE, a security guard threatened to confiscate my camcorder and to put me “in handcuffs!”

These are harsh times. The economy grinds down and the wars bomb on. In such an era, people define themselves by their actions. Often, there is no reversing the action taken, as a wounded economy and a desperate empire at war have no forgiveness.
California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger keeps repeating at his press conferences and meetings the big lie that no dams or water storage facilities have been constructed in California in the past 20 to 30 years. Apparently, the Schwarzenegger administration believes in the classic propaganda technique that if a big lie is repeated enough, it will eventually be accepted as truth by the media and public.

Monday 3rd September, 8pm @ Cube Cinema Bristol Indymedia Film Night: Where Blair Didn't Go - Bristolians in Palestine. Monday 3rd September, 8pm @ Cube Cinema, Entry £2/£3 (but nobody refused entry for a lack of funds.) As former Prime Minister Tony Blair travels to Palestine in his official role as Middle East envoy, a group of bristolians will also be visiting the region. These two trips couldn't be more contrasting. While Mr.Blair spends his time with top officials, our Bristolians will be spending their time with ordinary people trying to understand the struggles of daily life while living under the shadows of conflict. Indymedia Film Night presents the Bristol premiere of 'Return to Palestine' made by local filmmaker Ed Hill during his visit to Marda, Palestine as part of the Zaytoun Olive Harvest Trip. This film, following on from the success of his first film (shown August '06) captures life in a small rural town, shows the hospitality of the Palestinians and witnesses the threat of ethnic-cleaning due to the occupation. The film captures the reality of life in a war-zone; the health & social devastation, the unemployment, the chaos of the Wall, checkpoints controlling daily movement, the Israeli army's brutal house demolitions and the extreme level of militarism in Israeli society. The event will also feature a talk by members of the Bristol-based group who are preparing to travel out to help with this autumn's olive harvest in Palestine. Monday 3rd September, 8pm @ Cube Cinema, Entry £2/£3 (but nobody refused entry for a lack of funds.)
