Welfare not Warfare, Don’t Bomb Syria – Sat 28 November / March for Climate Justice / Stop Austerity

27 November 2015 — The Peoples’ Assembly

The next two weekends will see three important events. Please do all you can to get to them and spread the word. 

Protest: Welfare not Warfare, Don’t Bomb Syria – Sat 28 November

syria_1.jpgThe government tells us there’s no money for our welfare state, education and public services but billions can always be found for war. The proposed vote in Parliament on bombing Syria by British forces is likely to take place within the next week. A vote to bomb is more likely following the terrible events in Paris. Yet this bombing will not stop terror attacks. The People’s Assembly is opposed to military response and is supporting the Stop the War Coalition day of action. Protests will take place this Saturday around the country.

Sun Ra’s Solar Archestra Live in London!

2 June 2014 — Cafe OTO

I don’t often do this, advertise a gig but Sun Ra’s Solar Archestra has to have an exception made for it. I went to one gig at Cafe Oto a couple of years back and although Sun Ra relocated to the celestial sphere some while ago, the Archestra, under the direction of Marshall Allen, who as been with the Archestra since the very beginning, is, as they say, kickin’ arse! So, if you live in or around London this month, why not check it out.

For those of you in London and surrounds, this might be of interest to you:

What is worth the trouble?
Throughout history there have been those who sought to change the world and in doing so were labelled troublemakers. But are they always radical, extreme, revolutionary or even violent? Are they always anti-establishment or left-wing? Has social media changed the way people protest? Continue reading

Manifesto instalment out now: States of imagination

14 March 2014 – Lawrence and Wishart

Out now: Next Soundings manifesto instalment

States of imagination (PDF)
Janet Newman and John Clarke

Many people associate the state with bureaucracy or even repression, and have no time for current politicians. But the state also looks after us – in hospitals, schools, social services – and could enable us to better control unscrupulous business and banks. Can we imagine a more responsive state?

#BurnAusterity: Join a ‘Bonfire of Austerity’ action near you

4 November 2013 — Change:How?

[How indeed? I’m not sure what to make of this stuff frankly. The major sponsor is the Observer newspaper! They seem to come out once a year, talk a lot and then disappear until the next crisis comes along. It’s all slick PR stuff, no doubt pro bono work from a mind-fucker but what does it all mean and does it lead anywhere?  I mean really, “pin the blame on Cameron”? But not on capitalism? Burn your energy bill? I despair WB]

Tomorrow’s ‘Bonfire of Austerity’ looks set to be one of the biggest days of action for many years. Actions are taking place up and down the country as people are forced into poverty, forced to choose whether to heat the home or put food on the table and forced into the hands of legal loan sharks.
