Steal Something Day, a shameless 24-hour stealing spree!

Steal Something DayThe 24 hour moratorium on spending, 'Buy Nothing Day' is this Saturday 26th November in the UK. 6 years ago some Canadian anarchists came up with a critique of 'Buy Nothing Day' and called for a new initiative, 'Steal Something Day'.

Aldermaston 26/27th Nov - national demo against new nuclear weapon facility

28 miles from Oxford, the biggest and most powerful lasar system in the world is being built at the nuclear weapons factory, Aldermaston, at a cost of £183 million (on the scale of Heathrow's terminal 5). Greenpeace's report on 20th. Oct. exxposed the sham of the government's stance this year (May 22nd. ) when Dan Browne, Defence Secretary insisted "The Atomic Weapons Establishment is not engaged in the development of any new warheads". The Green peace report revealed testimony by US nuclear weapons scientists that the new facilities are in fact for designing and building new nuclear weapons. So much for parliamentary debate!

Shell Disrupted & Protested Again in Reading

As 25,000 people took to the streets of London yesterday calling for action on climate change, data from scientists, industry bodies and researchers, suggests that the cost of replacing the Trident nuclear weapons system - "could almost guarantee emission reductions from 150m tonnes of carbon a year today to the necessary level of around 60m tonnes by 2030."

Day of Action against Short Haul Flights - Locations of Public Events

Plane Stupid is calling for a day of action against short haul flights and short haul operators on November 6th, during the UN International Climate Talks in Nairobi. The day of action is two days after the mass event for climate action in London on November 4th, organised by Stop Climate Chaos and the Campaign Against Climate Change.

Westbourne 'Mental' Hospital squatted in Brighton/Hove- ooooh, the irony!

A couple of weeks ago a large contingent of Brighton squatters got together and occupied a large disused 'mental' hospital. The occupation was ostensibly to provide a roof over the steadily growing number of people fed up and disillusioned with the non-choice offered under the rule of Capital, in the housing sphere as in every other sphere under this systematic death forced upon us; the opportunity will also, however, be used to demonstrate alternative ways of organising day to day, in the here and now, the praxis of the theory, which will take the shape of whatever those organising see fit and within whatever parameters they deem to be appropriate- or in other words, get down there and do something!
