AT TEN - THE BOOK
It all started in a squatted courthouse in Brighton back in 1994
with people wearing silly wigs reading out the alternative news.
Ever since then SchNEWS has been publishing continuous weekly newsheets
full of radical get-off-your-arse direct action politics from Britain
and across the world. This book brings together some of the key
stories of the decade from the big roads protests and anti-Criminal
Justice Act movement in the nineties through to the global anti-capitalist
movement and opposition to the war in Iraq. From Newbury to Seattle,
Liverpool Dockers to the Zapatistas - with a lot of the less well
known, but equally important moments in between. And not forgetting
our infamous crap arrests of the week.
The book will be available from the SchNEWS conference and party,
as well as other events around the ESF for £7. Or else you
can order yours straight from us for £9 in p&p Click

DIRECT ACTION CAN SAVE THE WORLD
SCHNEWS TENTH BIRTHDAY CONFERENCE
SATURDAY 16TH OCTOBER 2004, 2PM 7PM
CAMDEN CENTRE, EUSTON ROAD, LONDON (Kings Cross tube)
SPEAKERS * DISCUSSION * FILMS * FOOD * BAR * ALL
WELCOME * FREE!
Direct action works. Active, popular opposition to oppressive rulers
has been the motive force of change throughout history and it still
is. If you think nicer politicians are gonna save the world and
your job is to cheer them on – well, you’ll be a long
time waiting for change.
SchNEWS, the weekly direct action newsletter, has been providing
information for action to anti-capitalists since 1994. Weve
put this conference together as an opportunity to discuss, plot
and organise resistance to the suicidal onward march of capitalism.
From the occupation of Iraq to criminalising dissent, from the growth
of sweatshop economies to creeping privatisation of basic services,
capitalism is attacking more and more people. And more and more
people are resisting.
This conference is a chance to hear about that resistance first
hand and find out how you can get involved in it.
Our lives, their profits – how we fight exploitation
- Anne Jones, mother of Simon Jones and campaigner for workplace
- Edgar Paez, international secretary of Columbian trade union
Climate change - capitalism's legacy to the world
- Rising Tide, grassroots network taking action on the root causes
of climate change
The warmongers and how to oppose them
- Mark Curtis, director of the World Development Movement and
author of Web of Deceit
- Ewa Jasiewicz, human rights activist and journalist imprisoned
by Israeli government
- Jo Wilding, activist, writer and witness to the seige of Falluja
How direct action can save the world
- Speaker on opposing the G8 visit to Scotland in 2005
- Anne, Edgar, Mark, Ewa, Jo and everyone else!
This event receives no financial support from the government
of London. As if.
