Yesterday a group of us headed to Britannia Cafe – described as a “social enterprise staffed by low risk prisoners”. With both a view of the prison and a view over Norwich, we did a banner drop from the tour bus: SMASH IPP, SET THEM FREE.


Coppers raid The People’s Picnic

Sunday, July 16th, 2017

Following the statement to the press from Sgt Mark Shepherd regarding a ‘weekend blitz’ on aggressive begging, we sadly witnessed Norfolk Constabulary’s tactics in regards to this in full force last night. We arrived at the Haymarket area which was already under direct surveillance, with a line of posturing PCSOs overlooking our proceedings – they had been present for over an hour before our volunteers arrived.

Police doing what they do best: intimidating and roughing up the most vulnerable sectors of society.

In Norfolk PCC Lorne Green’s recent Police and Crime Plan he states that he has laid out seven core principles for policing in the county that include “support victims and reduce vulnerability” and “good stewardship of taxpayers’ money”. That was in March. Last night we see over a dozen police officers attempting to intimidate a project that works with some of the most vulnerable people in the city, a project that has no previous instances of criminal behaviour or activity.

Is Lorne Green so shit at his job that is took just four months for him to forget about helping the vulnerable and not wasting taxpayers’ money? Or are the local coppers just slow readers and haven’t reached page seven yet?

Or… was it all a load of guff in the first place?

Anarchist Call Out for G20 2017

Anarchists call against the G20 summit in Hamburg (Germany)

On the 7th and 8th of July 2017, when the most successful war criminals of the present, the most unscrupulous sweaters of human and nature, the self-titled leaders of this planet, meet in Hamburg, they will not be confronted and this be revaluated with some demands for better governance or social enslavement.

They will feel the rage of the street, when they are rushing with their convoys through deserted districts and talk about the nightly attacks of the last few weeks.


Veganism: A Different Approach – I. Capitalism Is Not The Answer

Saturday, August 27th, 2016

For the past few months we have been working on putting together a publication that is aimed at the Norwich and Norfolk vegan scene, one that would introduce what seems to be an important but missing discourse from the community.


Boxing Day hit report from the Norfolk/Suffolk Hunt Saboteurs

Friday, January 1st, 2016

Full Facebook post, including photos, can be found here.


At one stage the whole of Lodge Road from almost the top of the Hill, to the bottom of St John’s corner and onto the Bungay/Halesworth Road was completely blocked by hunt supporters vehicles. They had just got out of their cars and headed onto the fields leaving them in the road.. This showed complete disrespect for other road users, and what the hell would have happened if Emergency vehicles had needed to get through. All this evidence will be going to various authorities who have ask for photographic evidence, now they have it. The police were called but refused to come out because of lack of staff. Well that’s a joke, because the week before they deployed 3 vehicles on the word of this hunt, and the officers did nothing all day but sit in their cars, and state ” I saw something, but don’t know what it was being chased.”

Unsurprisingly Bungay Town Council didn’t shut down the Boxing Day Hunt from holding their starting ceremony in the town centre, so it was down to the sabs to do once again what they do every weekend throughout the autumn and winter months: take direct action.

For a view from “the other side” check out this laughable article by hunt-loving Archant newspaper Bungay amd Beccles Journal.
