(en) Britain, March issue of Freedom* - ANARCHIST AND RADICAL NEWS UPDATE

Date Mon, 23 Apr 2012 09:56:25 +0300

After John Foley’s impressive action in handcuffing himself to the goalposts during an important premiership match to highlight his Ryanair Don’t Care campaign, Solidarity Federation put their support behind the International Week of Action Against Ryanair on 12th -18th March. ---- They encouraged other groups to organise their own actions in supporting the struggle of workers against exploitative employers. The day of action included phoning, faxing and emailing Ryanair to complain about their exploitative recruitment practices to visiting and leafleting offices of Ryanair and their agents. -- Solfed are also expanding as an organisation. Hull is the latest in a line of groups joining the federation which shows an upturn in interest in anarchist ideas. Other groups also in the process of actively forming locals are Glasgow, Chester, Hastings, Portsmouth/Southampton, Dorset, Birmingham, Edinburgh, and Cambridge.

Glasgow Solidarity Network(GSN) won a significant first victory over unscrupulous letting agents who tried to rip of tenants for renting accommodation in the city. When three people, two involved in Anarchist Federation, found out the letting agent was charging them illegally for non-existent services they made a formal complaint to the company. This was ignored so 15 people involved in the GSN visited the offices with a written demand to return the owed money within two weeks. The money was returned in full in four days.GSN is a volunteer network of people who organise to deal with specific housing, job and other problems caused by the greed of the rich and powerful. They recognise that housing and employment law protects landlords and bosses more often than tenants and workers, so take direct action to build solidarity and protect themselves.

As a new initiative that has come out of the city’s Anarchist Against the Cuts group Nottingham Solidarity Network has set itself up with the purpose of fighting cuts and fostering community action locally across Nottingham. They describe themselves as working people and tenants who work to defend themselves and others through direct action and mutual support. They also list the activities they seek to engage with including help in retrieving stolen wages and deposits, getting repairs made, and stopping evictions. Nottingham has a rich history of radical activity and along with the Sumac centre a strong base for activists, if you think you want to get involved contact them at: nsn@riseup.net or phone: 07423631681.
Finally Freedom wants to extend our congratulations to the legendary anarchist 1 in 12 Club in Bradford which has been saved from closure and continues to provide the city an essential local resource and venue. The building was threatened with legal action and closure due to fire regulations but spent the best part of six months getting the building up to local authority standards. This was all down to the support, goodwill, donations and good old fashioned graft put in by so many people. They want to say a massive thank you to everyone who helped! We say, good to know you’re still here! Send them messages of support: http://www.1in12.com/
