JonnyVoid: Capitalism is dying, let it burn

A London College Student Writes for the void:

Having successfully escaped my college before they attempted to imprison us again, following the events of the 24th, when our tyrant deputy head locked the gates, resulting in many of us just climbing over them anyway, I began my journey to Malet Street.

I got on a bus and sat there for about an hour or two. Drove past Russell Square and saw the …

Krona: The Fight For Parliament - A Personal Recap


(UPDATED TUMBLR NOTE: I’m sorry for posting this again. News outlets contacted have refused to publish any part of this report and are continuing to ignore first-hand accounts, occasionally posting bullshit quotes from politicians, union hacks and police chiefs about how great the police were on the day. I want this reblogged and spread to anyone and e…

ImcUK: Kettled During 9th of December Protest

My name is Rosie Bergonzi I am an A level student from Brighton. I attended to protest on Thursday the 9th of December and was kettled onto the bridge despite being an innocent protester. The mass media coverage of this event has, so far, been incredibly biased. Here is my account.

When I got on the train up to London with a small group of my friends we were in good spirits, making placards…

LibCom: On violence against the police - The Commune

A participant in the 9 December demonstrations against education cuts and fees in Parliament Square writes on the use of political violence, and condemnation of it in the media.

The condemnations are as predictable as they are boring. The public-school educated Sun hacks, who write like some coked up parodies of proletarian semi-literacy, refer to “louts” and “hooligans”. The Daily Mail co…

Fitwatch: Beating police repression

The remarkable and brilliant student action at Millbank has produced some predictable frothing at the mouth from the establishment and right wing press. Cameron has called for the ‘full weight of the law’ to fall on those who had caused tens of thousands of pounds of damage to the expensive decor at Tory party HQ. Responsibility is being placed on ‘a violent faction’, after the m…

The full force of the law


Last Thursday we saw another round of breach the human rights with open air detainment, crushing of protesters, furious baton charges and last but not least horse charges into tightly packed crowds. Sound familiar? Remember the G20 last year? While Cameron is announcing to bring down "the full force of the law" on protesters in this so called democracy, and there is public debate whether water can…

Not sure what to do when your mates are beaten up by the cops?

Help is at hand!



To understand these people is to feel their fears and walk in a forest of unknown things. This film is about rural white South Africans addressing their fears of crime, violence and black people.

Some are well resourced while others are ingeniously resourceful. The consequences are regression and isolation or freedom from fear. Like crocodiles, these people have been left to evolve according to th…
