Tip for climbing fences

pocket ladder

Many activists get arrested cutting through military fences and so get the extra charge of 'malicious mischief'.

You can buy 'telescopic-ladders' but they are very expensive so here is the cheapo solution.

(corrected) Christian-based direct action gathering, Leeds, 28th-30th July

CHRISTIANITY HELPED TO CREATE CAPITALISM...NOW IT MUST DESTROY IT!

Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming upon you. Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes. Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days. Look! The wages you failed to pay the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter. You have condemned and murdered innocent men, who were not opposing you. (James 5:1-6)
