Nottingham Solidarity Network – Phone Blockade – 14th April
Nottingham Solidarity Network call for a phone blockade of Nad’s takeaway
on Saturday the 14th April between 6pm and 10pm.
Following the delivery of the demand letter to unscrupulous landlord Mr.
Shakil on the 31st of March (see below for more info on the case), the
£700 deposit still hasn’t been returned to J and his housemates. Having
assured Mr. Shakil that we would continue in our efforts to collect the
deposit, we are calling for a phone blockade of his current workplace –
Nad’s takeaway owned by his brother in law – on 0115 9100555.
NSN are supporting a local AF member in his fight to get back the deposit from his shady landlord. Join us on Thursday lunchtime if you can. Details below the line
On November the 30th members of Nottingham Anarchist Federation were on the picket lines supporting the biggest UK strike in a generation. Three members (a university lecturer, university researcher and health support worker) manned picket lines at their own workplaces whilst students in further and higher education supported the pickets of their striking lecturers and teachers. Later, up to 10,000 people marched from the forest, again easily one the biggest marches Nottingham has seen in recent times.
Police have decided to charge two Nottingham residents, one a wheelchair user, the other a pensioner with aggravated trespass. This follows their arrest at a peaceful sit in at the Atos Healthcare offices on Stoney Street on September 30th. This is part of ongoing campaign against ATOS and its profiteering from the administration of medical assessments for benefits claimants. ATOS work hand in glove with the government to facilitate their stated aim rolling back the provisions of the welfare state. This is obstentality to enable them to work. The two main problems with that are a) there aren’t any jobs b) the assessments are mechanistic, incomplete and incapable of making any decisions on the fitness for work of claimants. The profit motive ensures that they never will be. More here on indymedia.
Chris Leslie is the Labour MP for Nottingham East. Since entering parliament as a thrusting young automaton aged 25, he has in a nine year political career* managed the remarkable feat of never having rebelled against a government position. Therefore always view him as a constant and consistent mouthpiece for current Labour party thinking. He’s politically pretty much identical to fellow local MP Vernon Coaker, but without Big Vern’s flair for standing next to things far more popular than him and the amusingly cack handed fumblings with social media. Anyway occasionally he deigns to let us, the public, know about the present conditions via his communiqués.
