Bristol becomes a national Extreme Energy frontline

Apr 11, 2014

The two most important new power stations you haven’t heard about… and why you want to ride with us this Saturday… A couple of months ago we found out that we have an imminent and nationally strategic extreme energy threat on our doorstep. One that we may be in a position to make or break. The tide seems to be turning in our favour but it’s going to need a big push. So obviously the best solution is to go for a bike ride with a sound system and eat some cake in a park this Saturday…

UWE students see off biggest military business and arms fair in the South West, call for independent review, and announce national protest at UWE Bristol on 14 April

UWE students see off biggest military business and arms fair in the South West, call for independent review, and announce national protest at UWE Bristol on 14 April

Apr 3, 2014

On 20 November 2013, UWE students “staged an ‘impeccable’ protest”1 against DPRTE, the military business and arms fair held at UWE in 2012 and 2013. Despite widespread hostility as well as systematic silencing, manipulation, repression and criminalisation, sometimes extending to threatened and actual violence from DPRTE participants, university security and the police, humble yet determined protests proved sufficient to see off the biggest military business and arms fair in the South West2. Early today, campaigning students released an open letter to UWE’s Board of Governors demanding an transparent, comprehensive and independent review into the university, following the repression against their peaceful protests, including direct efforts of UWE VC and the university’s Head of Security to intimidate and criminalise peaceful protesters. Campaigning UWE students also confirmed that activists and supporters will gather at UWE Bristol on 14 April 2014 for a national action called for by the Campaign Against the Arms Trade in solidarity with repressed UWE students, to denounce UWE’s collusion with the military and as part of the Global Day of Action Against Military Spending.
