Campaigners successfully shut down a US spy camp on 24th
October in a blockade which lasted five hours. The closure of
the base at RAF Menwith Hill happened when protesters
discovered that the main entrance was closed for
maintenance. They chained themselves to two smaller gates
instead, effectively sealing the area.
The blockade was the second major breach in the base's
security in less than four months, following an incursion by
Greenpeace activists in July. Demonstrators said afterwards
that they'd sent a clear signal to the government that local
people were unhappy with the base's presence. They
demanded that it be shut, officially, for good.

Activists from the National Civil Rights Movement (NCRM)
last week renewed calls for a public enquiry into the murder of
a young offender, on the day Channel Four aired a
documentary about the case. Prison Works: The Death of
Zahid Mubarek, which was broadcast on 27th October,
described Zahid's murder at the hands of his cellmate in
Feltham Young Offenders Institution in March 2000. His
killer, Robert Steward, had previously been identified as
mentally disturbed, violent and racist.
Support the Mubarek family in their search for answers.
Demand a public enquiry. Fax David Blunkett, the Home
Secretary, on 020-7273 3965 and tell him what you think.
For more information, contact Suresh Grover of the NCRM
on 07958-174 451 or visit www.ncrm.org.uk
