Presented here, amongst others, is the film that instigated the raid in the first place, ‘Batons ‘n’Bombs’, as well as others covering the dramatic conclusion to the EDO Decommissioners trial, the rise and fall of the much-loved Lewes Road Community Garden in Brighton, several recent actions from UK Uncut and more. Once again we have three SchMUSIC vids as well - big thanks to all the bands who contributed.

V For Video Activist
SchMOVIES DVD Collection 2006

The pick of the SchMOVIES produced in 2006, covering events across the UK such as the Smash EDO campaign, protest camps at Titnore Woods and Shepton Mallet, the Camp For Climate Action, anti-war demos at Parliament Square in the face of SOPCA laws, community resistance to the M74 motorway in Glasgow, and more... One theme that runs through these films is the blatant use of a 'political police force' to protect corporations and war criminals rather than uphold the law. But despite this, people are prepared to take direct action and not let a police state goosestep in. Remember... People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

Out NOW - £6 (including P&P) - which comes with free copy of the SchMOVIES 2005 DVD! (If you already have one, and don't want the 2005 DVD let us know when you order). Contact the SchNEWS Office 01273 685913 or email

Casualisation Kills - the story of the Simon Jones Memorial CampaignCasualisation Kills
(Simon Jones 2002 update)

People like Simon Jones get killed at work all the time and nothing is done about it, but not this time. Family and friends of a young man killed at work demand justice and an end to casualisation of labour. The campaign has since ensured a historic prosecution for corporate manslaughter. The video tells the story of the campain and shows how family and friends of Simon worked with direct action activists and trade unionists.

Guerillavision CompilationGuerillavision Compilation
- Rattle in Seattle, Capitals Ill, Crowd Bites Wolf

Since Seattle Guerillavision have been documenting the campaigns against globalisation from behind the barricades. These are stylistic hard hitting films (Big Rattle in Seattle, Capitals Ill and Crowd Bites wolf) which pull no punches. But be careful, watching all three together will have you reaching for a rock and heading for the nearest symbol of capitalist oppression.
