Freedom Press: Times are a changin’ - a look back at 2011

Freedom’s December issue editorial



As the turbulence of 2011 subsides just enough for us to catch our breath and look back over the last 12 months of a truly eventful year, it seems amongst the chaos and cacophony there were moments we can take as inspiration, some we can take comfort from and others that act as warnings of things to come.



As we have said countless times in the paper these a…

On The Mass Arrests In Hackney, 30th November

On Wednesday 30th November, some people sick of the soul-destroying

rhythms of daily life, took to the streets of Hackney. Bored by the

dull dynamics of union activities which reduce our misery to a few narrow

demands and channel and contain our anger, we decided to take control of

our situation.

vimeo: Occupy London: Nationwide Strikes

I followed the people from the Occupy London camp at St. Paul's Cathedral who were marching in solidarity with the protesters.
