After an eventful G20 the forces of the state seem to be sort of on the back foot!!! So let’s keep up the pressure on those pigs unless they’ve all died from swine flu. Mayday is just round the corner: let’s show them that we’re not easily scared.
<* EVENTS @ rampART *>
//TUESDAY, 28 APRIL, 7PM///
Cinema Libre is a chance for people to meet up and discuss there perspectives and share and learn from others in an informal environment. Discussion is open, and we always look forward to all contributions
Each week we bring you a selection of shorts and feature documentaries in an attempt to flesh out the issues and explore the solutions and action needed.
Tonight Cinema Libre continues with a round up of the last 4 weeks from the mega uber over re-action by the G20 meltdown Cops to the continuing fight in Greece against the facist cops, from the N.A.T.O. summit Barbecue to the plight of London cleaners demanding fair wages and treatment. As usual there will be tons of other culture jammin’ media to give you that extra skip in your step as we watch the capitalist system crumble around us.
Remember its still all free so your support is the only currency worth anything and our in-action the only deficit worth worrying about.
//THURSDAY, 30 APRIL, 7PM///

UK PEACE ACTIVISTS TO STAGE STRIKE PROTEST IN SUPPORT OF TAMILS
From 10am all day, Wednesday 29 April, Parliament Square, London
Peace activists will be “On Strike Against Genocide” tomorrow in support of the of the British Tamil community whose relatives are under siege in Sri Lanka. Peace Strike is calling on people to respond to the emergency situation in Sri Lanka by taking the day off work, nursery, school, college and university and to gather in Westminster.
Tamil protestors have been in Parliament Square since early April to bring attention to the plight of their people in Tamil Eelam caught up in the military assault by the Sri Lanka Government. Most protesters have relatives who have been seriously injured or killed.
Parameswaran Subramanivan, a 28 year old student on ³hunger strike till death², has lost 10 immediate family members. Doctors have warned that the Tamil student, on hunger strike in Parliament Square for 22 days in protest at the Sri Lankan governments military assault, may have only a week to live. (1)
Maria Gallastegui from Peace Strike said, ŒThousands of Tamil women, children, men, students, young and old have kept up a constant presence in Parliament Square in all weathers, for over 3 weeks. We have been constantly asking British Government officials to discuss the situation and have been absolutely shocked by the indifference to every attempt. The Genocide Prevention All Party Parliamentary Group said they were not interested, and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office have not replied to our emails. It is disgusting how the Tamils in Britain are being ignored.¹
