I’ve not had time to write anything substantial on here in a while, and to be honest I don’t have enough time to do so right now, but I wanted to share a few links of interest. One story that I missed when it came out a few weeks back is that Grand Jury resister Maddy Pfeiffer is now free. I only found out about it now as a result of reading about the increased FBI harassment of anarchists in Olympia and Seattle in the run-up to May Day. I suppose in the next 24 hours we’ll have a clearer picture of how the last year of state repression has affected the Pacific North-West’s ability to throw lively May Day events. Closer to home, one form the fight against state repression has taken is in the solidarity shown to Steve Topley, a Nottinghamshire claimant who was imprisoned for comments made during an Atos interview, but has now been released on bail.
Finally, and this really is a brief round-up because I’m tired, the inspiring grassroots campaign against the bedroom tax on Merseyside continues, and this week they occupied the offices of a bailiff company that’d been looking to make money out of welfare reform.
That’s all for now, I hope to find the time to write more soon. Happy May Day, anyway.
