STOP NATO – Local residents on alert for police violence

The NATO summit 2014 is estimated to cost the Tax payer in excess of £50m. That’s £50million pounds for a two-day meeting.

People in Wales are already warning others about an increase in police brutality, stop and searches and intimidation tactics.

We need actions to express alternatives to Austerity.

ORGANIZE.
Mass Civil disobedience is a great way to get a message across.

Outreach has failed in the past, we must organize a massive lift share before #18Oct

Now is the time to shut them down.

Many high-street corporations have become victim of Greed. Through workfare schemes, tax avoidance and bad working conditions, It appears fat cat Bosses are using Capitalism to declare war on hard working men and woman.

THE GOOD NEWS is Ed Miliband will be there.

EdMiliband_thesun
Ed Fucking Miliband

Now if this is not a reason to be there then I don’t know what is. A man who reads the Sun, doesn’t support the Unions, or the left, or the poor or anyone for that matter, face it. Labour leader Ed Miliband is a loser. Ed will be in Hyde Park on stage, in front of the Masses of pissed off people. He will be lucky if he gets 10 seconds, that is if the stage doesn’t get stormed.

In August 2014 it looks like #Fracking is gonna be thrust back into the limelight.

Its called RECLAIM THE POWER and just about every direct action junkie in the UK will be there.  Make no mistake, this is not a festival this is the new front line of #Fracking in the UK.  The Local communities of rural England, Scotland and Wales have formed an Anti-fracking network, these groups are ready to mobilize against #Fracking. All-out for August 14th / BLACKPOOL, UK

It’s time to link arms and stand together against Fracking.

As of August 2013 Balcombe emerged as a focus of opposition to fracking in the southeast England and vigorous protests were in progress. Here are some photos of those protests.
