  • Really good documentary films online for free
    Recently I had a Twitter exchange with Dorian Cope on the topic of documentaries on YouTube. She recommended some really good ones (listed below), including The Leonard Peltier Story, which I knew as Incident At Oglala. By Michael Apted (he of The World Is Not Enough Bond fame, as well as the Up series of documentaries), Incident At Oglala is a righteous retelling of the story of the American Indian Movement ... more

  • #MarParaBolivia – Bolivia’s Day for the Sea is on 23 March!
    Bolivian nationalism is being whipped up ahead of the national ‘Day for the Sea’ this Thursday, led by the hashtags #ElMarNosUne & #MarParaBolivia and slogans such as ‘Bolivia Nacio Con El Mar’ (Bolivia was born with the sea) and ‘Los Bolivianos Tenemos Derecho Al Mar’ (Bolivians have a right to the sea).

  • THE DIRTY THIRTY: REVEALED
    THIRTY Bristol City Council bosses – all members of the ‘Change Board’, responsible for overseeing a council-wide cuts programme – deliberately withheld from councillors and the public a £30 million LOSS in the 2016 – 17 financial year. Their actions – at the very least – are GROSS MISCONDUCT and they should all be SACKED. Not least because while they were keeping their huge financial loss from us, they were ... more

  • Bristol named worst place to live due to yet another best place to live award
    How to turn violent rebellion into a marketing tactic in just six short years Across the city today Bristolians woke up to the latest barrage of ‘journalism’ about how great their city was.   Any initial pride that was felt back in say, 2013, has been replaced by resigned groans and the question: best place to live for who exactly?. ‘I guess there are lots of those exciting redevelopments‘ said one ... more

Finally today, they have returned to the street with their dignity intact.) Affinity and Solidarity against victimization and authority In the struggle to break with the establishment we look ... more
