Early November round-up

Just a few quick links to things I’ve seen or read recently that’re of interest: While Rome Burns has a really good piece on anti-fascism and the decline of the EDL, and the newly-launched Plan C website has a few really interesting articles on it, particularly this one.
Continuing the trend of harsh legal crackdowns on dissent, a man’s been given 100 hours of community service for heckling David Cameron. In Wales, Christos Palmer is currently on hunger strike against Atos after they cut his benefits. In more positive news, a rank-and-file movement is emerging in the Civil Service, and the more established rank-and-file electricians’ network is calling for a mass picket of Crossrail as part of the European general strike on November 14th. The Sparks network also recently occupied the lobby of the Office of Rail Regulation in order to pressure them into taking action against blacklisting.
Finally, another US anarchist, Matthew “Maddy” Pfeiffer, will be appearing before the Grand Jury tomorrow. They do not intend to co-operate, and will likely be imprisoned at the end of their appearance. More news to follow soon.

About nothingiseverlost

"The impulse to fight against work and management is immediately collective. As we fight against the conditions of our own lives, we see that other people are doing the same. To get anywhere we have to fight side by side. We begin to break down the divisions between us and prejudices, hierarchies, and nationalisms begin to be undermined. As we build trust and solidarity, we grow more daring and combative. More becomes possible. We get more organized, more confident, more disruptive and more powerful."
