ECOCIDE CONTINUES AT PONDTAIL WOOD

The Occupied Argus

By ANN NARKEH

Despite public outcry following reports that 13 acres of ‘protected’ ancient woodland have been destroyed, the ecocidal maniacs responsible have now dumped tonnes of waste rubble onto the site.

Situated in the South Downs National Park, the planted woodland had been properly managed for centuries.

It is now a giant waste dump.

The Head of Planning for the authorities has apparently publicly stated that they were first informed of the destruction of Pondtail Wood on 8th April by the District Council.

However,the group, Save Pondtail Wood claim to have a letter from the Chief Executive of Mid Sussex District Council addressed to Sir Nicholas Soames MP, stating that they had informed the Park Authority on 24th March.

When faced with such blatant examples of the authorities’ inability (or unwillingness) to protect us, perhaps we should reconsider whether writing letters, signing petitions and marching from A to B is really going to cut it.  It seems to me the time for protest is over, but is there still time for any effective resistance?

Let’s hope so.

RACISTS ARE NOT WELCOME HERE!

IMPORTANT UPDATE from Brighton Antifa‘s fedbook page:

“At the same time as fascist march in Brighton, there is also a Skinhead Reunion event. Please be aware that vast majority of those attending are non-racist skinheads with quite few being on our side. Whilst there might be few unsavoury characters from the far-right trying to mix in with the Reunion crowd, use your common sense and don’t assume every skinhead you will see in town on the day came here for the fascist march. Hopefully Skinhead Reunion organisers will also make sure at their end that any attempts of racists trying to infiltrate their event will be dealt with”.

REFUGEES ARE WELCOME

On the 4th of June, a group of far-right racists want to protest in Brighton against refugees. The group, calling themselves “South Coast Resistance” or “Pie and Mash Squad” say they’re opposed to our city hosting any refugees whilst British people are homeless.

In reality, this is simply an excuse for their undisguised racism. These fascists don’t care about homelessness, they just want to keep refugees out. The reason for the homelessness in Brighton isn’t the ( frankly pathetically small ) amount of refugees we’re taking in, it’s the government selling off all the council stock, closing homeless shelters and banning squatting.

Despite a Severe Weather Warning, NO EMERGENCY SHELTERS FOR BRIGHTON’S HOMELESS!

The Occupied Argus

The Met Office has issued a Severe Weather Warning across the Sussex coast for today, Saturday 26th March and this Bank Holiday Monday. Wind speeds today are 60mph.

It is expected to ease off a little on Sunday, though by Tuesday, they are expected to reach 70mph.

Love Activists Brighton contacted the relevant authorities to find out whether the emergency shelters would be opened up, to discover that apparently they are not.

HORSE HILL HEROES!

The Occupied Argus

Fracking is a #RedLine

#HH

  • The Government has changed the definition of hydraulic fracturing..
  • Industry insists they’re not going to frack.
  • You don’t object.. BINGO!

“No amount of abuse, insults, intimidation or violent threats will put us off from stopping this ecocidal industry. Such actions only strengthen our cause and help us to expose to the world what this industry and its lobbyists are really like.

 

Despite the concerted efforts of a small number of people trying to dampen our campaign, people from near and far have descended upon Horse Hill in force today and done us proud. Thank you to each and every person who took part in the cycle and march, and to everyone unable to be there in person, but who have nonetheless shown their support and gratitude.”

HOMELESS HOTELS FROM HELL

Daniel Harris has been homeless and sofasurfing in Brighton for 3 years. He suffers with mental health issues, including PTSD and he is a survivor of child sexual abuse. Daniel was recently emergency housed by the council at Percival Terrace, Brighton.

The rent on his self contained room is £28 a day. He has to pay a further £50 a month for utilities and Council Tax. In total, he must pay £900 a month to live there, which leaves him significantly worse off than he was while sofasurfing. Daniel is not allowed visitors and his description of the conditions are appalling.
