The State Is Not The Answer

Sunday, April 23rd, 2017

At next weekend’s Cambridge Radical Bookfair we’ll be launching part two of the Veganism – A Different Approach series. Titled “The State Is Not The Answer”, this edition takes a look at the effectiveness of trying to use State power to achieve a better world for non-human animals. In particular, it focuses on two key pieces of UK legislation: the banning of battery cages, and the Hunting Act 2004. Using these two 21st Century examples the text attempts to illustrate why the pursuit of animal liberation through legal means can only lead to dead ends.

A friend of ours was part of the 14 arrested and charged for grounding the mass deportation flight on March 29th at Stanstead. Solidarity to the lot of them!

No support fund has been started yet but that may change depending on the outcome of their court appearance. We will remain updated.

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.

 

Movement for Justice @ UEA

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016

We just uploaded a talk from Movement for Justice that was given at the UEA last week. Listen to find out more about what they do, how they help women caged in Yarl’s Wood detention centre (including a personal account from Aisha, who had spent time inside the place), and what can be done to support their actions.

Apologies for the low quality of the audio. We’ll try and get better at recording these things!

A link to the recording can be found at our Audio Archive page.

PGP Key

Sunday, November 20th, 2016

Given the recent passing of the Investigatory Powers Bill through the House of Lords – meaning it is set to become law – we have been hard at work updating the security across all our electronic devices.

As part of this effort, we finally decided to implement a PGP key for email. What this means is you can now contact us with even greater security than using RiseUp alone can offer. You can find our PGP key on the email contact page.

If you’d like an easy tutorial on creating and using PGP keys then please check out this post on Reddit.

For more information on broader digital security measures, take a look at this article on The Intercept.

East Anglian Anti-Fascist Network

Thursday, October 27th, 2016

DIT Collective is proud to be participating in the newly formed EA-AFN. This is a network of individuals, groups, and organisations working to broaden communication about anti-fascism across the region. While Norfolk isn’t a hotbed of activity as some other parts of the region are, there is nonetheless an undercurrent that we must remain vigilant about.

If you have any questions or concerns relating to fascist, neo-nazi, traditionalist, or other far right activity and feel comfortable talking to us about it then please send us an email or message us on FB. All information will be treated with sensitivity and security.
