Yesterday, I spent a delightful half-hour speaking to Richie Allen, a colleague of David Icke, for his show on Volcania Radio, which is streamed live via various sites, including David Icke’s, and is available below via YouTube. It’s also on David Icke’s site here. Richie asked me first about Shaker Aamer, the last British prisoner […]

12.10.14

See the video below and see my photos on Flickr here. On Saturday October 11, 2014, I attended a protest in Parliament Square, opposite the Houses of Parliament in London, against the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), a dangerous new EU-US trade deal, which, if passed, as the organisers of the London event explained, […]

Please sign the European petition against TTIP here, which has received over 400,000 signatures in just four days.

Save the NHS: Photos of the People’s March for the NHS in London, September 6, 2014

7.9.14

See my photos of the People’s March for the NHS and the rally in Trafalgar Square on Flickr here! Some people think that protest is futile, but in Lewisham, in south east London, we know that’s not true. In 2012 and 2013, a grass-roots people’s movement in Lewisham defeated plans by the government — and […]

Rare Good News for the NHS: Government Accepts Lords Amendment Removing Hospital Closure Clause from Care Bill

15.5.14

Last week there was some rare good news about the NHS, which I’m posting belatedly because I was too busy last week, and also because I want to make sure that my approval is on record. I’m also posting it because, let’s face it, those of us who care about social justice have few victories […]
