Ongoing UVW union’s indefinite strike action for #LivingWage workers from 8 June @ 100 Wood Street, EC2V 7AN



UPDATED 24 JULY 2016: Day 47 on the picket line at 100 Wood Street. This is the longest strike in the history of the City of London and the longest (and maybe only) strike by an entirely migrant workforce and we’re still going strong and have no intention of going anywhere until justice is served.

This strike is ongoing. Please come and support United Voices of the World protest in support of the cleaners from 8 June, every day, at 100 Wood Street, EC2V 7AN, who are paid poverty wages and are being unlawfully dismissed by the anti-union cleaning contractor Thames Cleaning and Support Services Limited.

Fuck war: Battle of the Somme, 100th anniversary of mass murder, 1 July

On 1st July 1916 the mainly British forces attacked and had the shit kicked out of them. The bloodbath lasted 140 days and achieved little, except killing the same number of Germans. It was the largest battle of the First World War on the Western Front; more than one million men were wounded or killed, making it one of the bloodiest battles in human history.

This version of the tune (The Farm, All Together Now) was re-released during the build-up to the 1990-1991 Iraq-Kuwait War, and was maybe the most blatant anti-war tune at the time.

We were being told Saddam Hussein had the whatever biggest army on the planet. The whole British army would die and all 18 year olds should start thinking about being called-up.

And then the West bashed the shit out of Iraq in a few days, killed hundreds of thousands, millions, if you include deaths from sanctions.

Fuck war Fuck war Fuck war

A murder of Ravens @ White Cube Bermondsey, date to be announced



How such rumours do swirl and plant their claws in the minds of those open to understanding and misunderstanding. How can an artist get someone else to make the art for them? Why are the peoples’ Ravens imprisoned at the Tower of London, a symbol of royal oppression since its foundations were laid?
