Message from the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Southampton Branch: London Demonstration 4th November.

Dear All

If you are planning to go to the National Demonstration on November 4th and are joining us from Southampton then we are meeting at Southampton Central at 9.30 am and the group will subsidize the fare. However if you are planning to make your own way to London please note the change of assembly point.

Assemble at 12 noon, Grosvenor Square, W1K 6LF

Also whether you are going to London or not please join the Thunderclap. A thunder clap is  a simultaneous post from a huge number of people on either Twitter or Facebook or both. We plan to raise a tremendous thunderclap on November 2nd, the centenary of Balfour.

https://www.thunderclap.it/projects/63366-make-it-right-for-palestine  #Balfour100

We are demonstrating in London and on Social Media to raise awareness of the issue of Justice for Palestine, to put pressure on our Government to right the wrongs of Balfour a century ago but we also do this for  the Palestinian people and for activists  in Palestine. We do it to show solidarity with them. They will be watching social Media. Use the hashtag #Balfour 100  because it has been used by Zionists to “celebrate” Balfour so we are  hijacking it for Justice for Palestine!

THE PLAQUES PROJECT IS STARTING… on FRIDAY 27TH OCTOBER. (Night before London Bookfair)

The Plaques Project is starting…
We have decided to mark some of the places where officers from the Special Demonstration Squad and other undercover units spied on us, and our movements for change, over the years.
We will be putting plaques up at various sites around London.
We’re starting on Friday 27th October.

Meet us at the Cock Tavern, Phoenix Rd, Euston NW1 1HB for a drink and some reminiscing at 5.30pm.
We’ll be moving off at 6pm sharp for a quick tour around some places of interest in the local area.

We aim to reach Housmans bookshop for an unveiling and launch event at 7.30pm.

Please come dressed as a ghost (bed-sheet style) if you can.

Solidarity demo, Cardiff Crown Court, Monday 23rd October, 2pm.

Cardiff Crown Court, Cathays Park, Cardiff CF10 3PG.

We are calling for support and solidarity for a good comrade and tireless anti arms trade activist who is on trial for direct action against the Cardiff arms fair. This woman could not stand by while arms dealers furthered their profits by marketing mass murder. Instead of acceptance she chose resistance and did all that she could to disrupt the death dealers. She is very clear that her actions were necessary to prevent greater crimes but the judge has ruled that such a defence is not admissible. Evidently they won’t allow their courts to be used as a means to turn the tables and put the arms industry on trial. Now our comrade faces prison as the state seeks to make an example of her and discipline us all. It is crucial we stand together. Join the demonstration to show that she is not alone. Bring banners, placards and noise. Solidarity is our weapon and our best defence.

The Defence Procurement, Research, Technology and Exportability (DPRTE) took place at the Motorpoint arena on 28th March this year. It is an opportunity for the arms industry and government representatives to conduct their murderous “business as usual”, leading to the arming of brutal regimes everywhere with all the latest tools for repression and wars. It was forced to move from Bristol in 2014 as a result of determined demos and actions and activists in Cardiff and beyond are aiming to do the same there. Get involved and help shut them down next year!

Protest Unoliaeth, Llys y Goron Caerdydd Parc Cathays, Caerdydd, CF10 3PG Dydd Llun y 23ydd o Hydref 2pm

Rydym yn galw am gefnogaeth a unoliaeth i gymrodor da ac ymgyrchydd diflino sydd yn y cwrt am weithredu’n uniongyrchol yn erbyn Ffair Arfau Caerdydd. Ni all hon sefyll yn ddiymadferth tra bod y sawl sydd yn prynu a gwertu arfau yn pellhau eu elw gan farchnata ladd ar raddfa ddiwydianol. Yn lle derbyn y sefyllfa fe dewisiodd hi i frwydro nol a gwneud popeth yn ei gallu i ymyrryd ar waith y sawl sydd yn elwa o’r diwydiant arfau. Y mae hon yn glir iawn bod ei gweithredoedd yn angenrheidiol i atal troseddau gwaeth ond fe wnaeth y barnwr benderfynnu bod y fath amddiffyniad ddim i’w glywed. Nid ydynt yn barod i ddefnyddio’r llysoedd i rhoi y diwydiant arfau yn y doc. Nawr y mae i’n gwynebu carchar tra bo’r wladwriaeth yn ceisio gwneud esiampl ohoni a dysgu gwers i ni i gyd. Mae’n hanfodol ein bod yn cyd-sefyll. Ymunwc y brotest i ddangos nad ydi hi ar pen ei hunain Dewch a banneri, placardiau a swn. Unoliaeth yw ein harf ni ac ein amddiffyniad pennaf.

Cynhalwyd yr “Defence Procurement, Research, Technology and Exportability” (DPRTE) yn arena y Motorpoint ar y 28fed o Fawrth y flwyddyn hon. Mae’n gyfle i’r diwydiant arfau a chynryciolwyr o’r llywodraeth gynnal eu diwydiant ffiaidd, yn hwyluso diwydiant sydd yn arfu gladwriaethau sydd yn lladd eu pobl gyda’r teclynau diweddaraf ar gyfer gorthwm a rhyfel. Cafodd y ffair arfau ei orfodi o Fryste yn 2014 ar ol protestidau a gweithredoedd chwyrn a mae ymgyrchwyr yng Ngaerdydd a thu hwnt yn ceisio gwneud yr un peth. Ymunwch a’r ymgyrch i gau’r ffair arfau yma y flwyddyn nesaf!

Fours years on the street and the struggle goes on

Focus E15 Campaign

Saturday 7 October was a busy day for Focus E15 campaign as we celebrate four years of campaigning for social housing and against social cleansing. 

On our lively weekly stall on the Broadway in Stratford, Focus E15 campaign was joined by members of the Renters Power Project and the London Renters Union, along with Fight Racism! Fight Imperialism!

Then we had our monthly campaign meeting (first Saturday of the month, 2.30-4.30pm Sylvia’s Corner, 97 Aldworth Road, E15 4DN). The meeting had updates on people working with the campaign and their current housing situation, including the racism of detention and threatened deportation, the isolation of families socially cleansed from Newham when they run into local difficulties, and the threats of people being separated from their children in desperate housing situations despite Section 17 of the Children’s Act regarding keeping children and parents together.

During the campaign meeting we…
