Nelson Mandela has died aged 95.
Mandela first came to my attention as a young student back in the 70's.
It was his story that inspired me to go on my first ever demonstration.
Outside the local Barclay's bank calling for a boycott of south africa.
After his release I went to Wembley stadium on his 'freedom tour'.
The whole stadium fell silent to hear him.
Such a powerful man who spoke powerful words of forgiveness and unity.
Mandela - the last of the heroes...

George Osborne has just announced £1 billion cuts to government spending.
'The plan is working', says the tory weasel.
Not for the majority of people, george.
And didnt you let vodafone off paying £6 billion in taxes, last year ?

For those who asked...
Welcome to the website of the ActivistSecurity collective. The purpose of is to provide a home for some of our publications on practical security for activists and campaigners, all of which are free to download - see below.
We've put a lot of time into the Activist Security Handbook - it is now a whooping 70 pages of tightly written text - and we hope it will be of use to every kind of campaigner. Small parts are specific to the United Kingdom but the majority of it will be suitable to people working all over the world.
It has been written by UK activists who have successfully campaigned for over a decade in the face of increasing repression from the state and corporations. However, we need your feedback and your corrections. If we have missed something out or have gotten it wrong, then it is vital you let us know at email@example.com. This is intended as a resource for the entire social justice/anti-capitalist/environmental/animal rights collective movement, so it needs your imput as well. We are also willing to do talks in the UK and abroad if needed.
1) The Security Handbook - practical security advice for campaigns and activists with updated article on mobile phone security.
2) Infiltrators, Informers and Grasses - a guide on what to do if you suspect you may have an insider in your group, practical advice on detecting them and best practise on what to do once you have confirmation.
3) A Guide to Secure Meetings in Pubs - a short and to-the-point guide to meeting in pubs and other public spaces.
For those who speak french there is a good online guide to secuity for activists at guide.boum.org. If you know of any more do let us know.
We are generally happy for activists and campaigners to reprint any of this material as long as they are not profiting from it. However, we would be grateful if you dropped us an email to let us know.
The ActivistSecurity.org collective has created a blog at network23.org/infiltrators with the aim of creating a repository documenting the infiltrators placed in various movements by the police and private security firms. We aim to provide an authoritive source which people can come to in order to bypass the rumour and disinformation that often accompany exposes.
Where an allegation is brought to our attention we will investigate as far as possible and if we agree we will give our collective's endorsement to the expose. Follow links for our statements on Becki Todd / Vericola Ltd and Lynn Watson.
You may also want to look at the material on the US anti-snitching website: Rats.

On July 5, 2011, 37-year-old Kelly Thomas was hospitalized after a run-in with police that saw him tasered multiple times, beaten with batons and the blunt side of a taser, while yelling for his father for help. Thomas, who suffered from schizophrenia, fell into a coma as a result of the incident and was removed from life support five days later.
Former Fullerton Officer Manuel Ramos, 39, has been charged with second-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter. Meanwhile, former Cpl. Jay Cicinelli, 41, is charged with involuntary manslaughter and the use of excessive force. Both are pleading not guilty.
video made me sad then just angry.

Oh its all set to kick off next year.
After years of low interest rates the bank of england will surely increase the cost of borrowing.
Public debt is now falling.
Private debt ie household debt is rising.
That means another squeeze on ordinary peoples finances.
The help to buy scheme has been squashed by the bank.
The final clue in the banks desire to increase lending rates.
Interest rates will be raised to 2.5/3% initially, peaking at 5/6% in 18 months.
Do the math and work out how that will affect your mortgage and personal loans.
We are heading for another financial crash.
And it is soon.
The mistakes(?) of 2008 have not been learnt.
It will be worse...

5 years after the 'crash', 2,714 bwankers received bonuses over 1 million euros.
In Italy, the number is only 109.
In Germany it is 212.
The UK attacks benefits for the disabled.
Food banks, homelessness and cuts to our nhs and schools continue.
Yet those who caused the crash are rewarded with bonuses.
Not one banker has been charged with a criminal offence.
