THE Labour Party

I have been dismally disappointed by the Labour Part ever since I can remember. It started when they stole my parents from me for most of my Childhood on the promise of a bright and better Country.

Then John Smith Died.

Then came the Joker…

And it got worse and worse and worse… until finally about 5 years ago I realised that they are a bunch of Tories wearing red ties. But anyway, enough about me, I just like to complain and do nothing.

Check these guys out THE Labour party.

Waking Walbrook

Free event. Booking required.

“If there were water…
If there were only water amongst the rock…
If there were the sound of water only
TS Eliot, The Wasteland
The Walbrook River was one of the largest and most important rivers in London. A Roman river, the Walbrook takes us back to ancient London, when south of the river was a group of islands, and much of what we now understand as this city was more marsh than land.
The Walbrook has been lost for over 5 centuries. With the help of a dowser, artist Amy Sharrocks has re-mapped this river, and is attempting to reclaim this great body of water with a huge public walk along its course.”

Amy Sharrocks has re-mapped the ancient buried Walbrook River from its source in Islington its mouth at the River Thames. Participents are asked to wear blue and be llosely tied at the waist, the idea being that this will be a process of re remembering the boy of water using a body of blue people!!!

A lovely Idea, I really hope they get a good turn out…

Anarchy Conference 2009

home-img3I like Anarchy. Its good. Its doing something at least for what you believe in and from what I have experienced there can be a whole lot of fun involved if you’re not taking it all incredibly seriously…

So with that I bring to you the Anarchist Movement Conference 2009. Take a look at the call to the Movement

“The anarchist ideals of mutual aid, solidarity and the desire to live as equals have been echoed throughout our history, in every country, by women and men, regardless of race or ethnicity. We have a proud history, this conference is both about recognizing where we have come from and organizing where we want to go. Be a part of it!”
