On the First Day of Christmas some bright spark in Vodafone’s marketing department thought it would be a good idea to run a ’12 days of smiles’ competition on Twitter where you said what made you smile via #mademesmile. The response was phenomenal…

The tax dodging scumbags were inundated with anti-Vodafone tweets forcing them to take down their live Twitter feed.

Public 1, Vodafone 0

Nice work everyone!

And a nice anti-tax-dodger article from Johann Hari – http://ukuncut.org.uk/blog/guest-blog-philip-green-is-sponging-off-the-state

During the miner’s strike a friends father nearly died after needing surgery to remove half his bowel.  He had been severely beaten by officers from the Metropolitan Police for the ‘crime’ of fighting for his future. When they finished beating him the shit-headed fascists laughed and said “Now you’ve met the MET!”

A quarter of a century later the Met are beating up children who, like the miners and the poll tax protesters before them, are taking a stand to defend their future. As usual the media is lying through it’s teeth, but nowadays we have technology on our side and detailed reports are more easily – and more widely – spread. Here are two which are definitely worth reading…

The MET are scum. The media are liars. Despite the bullshit about ‘anarchist agitators’ and ‘violent minorities’ ‘hijacking legitimate protest’ the truth is that these are working class children and young adults who are taking a stand because previous generations and the democratic process have failed them. Either join them or get out of the way and let them do what needs to be done!

Justice for Alfie Meadows!

Justice for Ian Tomlinson!

We hope everyone has been practising the lovely Clegg Anthem for Sheffield on Wednesday 24th November. Here’s a reminder of how it goes (sung to the tune of ‘My Old Man’s A Dustman’ if you were wondering, Nick)…

Nick Clegg is a wanker
he wears a wanker’s hat
and no one really likes him
cos he’s a massive twat
he’s hated by the left wing
he’s hated by the right
he’ll never be the P.M.
cos he’s a fucking shite.

CORDON have arranged an organising meeting for tomorrow night…

Join the Resistance in Doncaster. Come to the Womens Centre, Cleveland Street, 7.30pm to plan what we do next to oppose the cuts.

It would be good for any anarchists in the vicinity to drop by. We need to put aside our differences and show a united front if we are going to fight the cuts in Doncaster.

With the National Walk Out on the 24th and the stand against Tax-Evading Companies on December 6th, the next few weeks will mark a turning point for the anti-cuts campaign if we can organise effectively.
