Lobbyists Of London

Evidence that the City of London Corporation is a lobbying organisation for the banks is now indisputable. The City of London Corporation brushes off suggestions that it is a lobbying organisation but as media reports yesterday showed - at the very least it certainly uses their services. Read more ...

When you consider that the City and the Conservative party are at least partially responsible for the failed policies that caused the economic crisis, their complacency over the Eurozone crisis is alarming. David Cameron and the Lord Mayor now have questions to answer.

UK Uncut Christmas Special

‘Twas the week before Christmas, when all through the town,

Cash tills were ringing, snow falling down.

Big business is merry, and with good reason-

For it’s the busiest shopping day of the season.



But not every CEO should sleep snug in their bed,

As dreams of big profits dance through their head,

Because any tax dodgers with hope of good cheer:

UK Uncut know you’ve been naughty this year.

#n30: audio from south london pickets + main march

November 30, 2011 saw public sector workers strike across the country in protest of so-called 'pension reforms' by the Con-Dem government to public pensions. The following features audio recordings of picketers discussing their reasons for participating in the national day of action as well as some rambles and observations of the days actions from my perspective.

Pics: banners at #N30 demonstration

Frontmarch-thumb

N30 was thee biggest day of strike action seen in the UK for decades, and so London saw hundreds of thousands of people marching together in a demonstration called by most public sector unions. Here there are some photos of traditional union banners on display at the demo, as well as banners from a variety of groups and organisations that came together to fight the government cuts in public sector…

A few photos of N30 Strike Demo at Victoria Embankment. I'm afraid my kids were a bit unco-operative - they thought the whole thing was very boring and no fun! Quite perceptive... anyway this is what I managed to photograph.

N9 Student Demo at Malet Street/Gower Street

N9-1002-thumb

I managed to get down to Malet Street around 12pm for the start of the N9 Student Anti-cuts Demo. The mood was good, but given the very obvious police presence, there was clearly a tension in the air. Police horses 'led' the march in front of a thickish blue line.

Olsx01-03-thumb

I visited the St Pauls occupation site around 10am Monday morning for an hour or so with my daughter. The police were around of course, a few of them milling about being 'nice', while a number of identikit TV reporters were making banal commentaries about the goings on around them, Actually things were quite quiet - there were a couple of meetings going on here and there, and some discussions with…

Towards the end of state

Occupy-london-thumb

The occupation of the London Stock Exchange along with the rest of the world last Saturday with large public support may seem like a trifle reformist for most activists but its very presence shows a real disenchantment with standard democratic functions, and a desire for more horizontal decision-making.
