Report on Rossport Solidarity Camp speaking tour of Scotland and England
15 Feb 2006

After a very productive publicity tour of England back in November we decided it was time to do some more outreach, this time to Scotland. Its important that we make as many links as possible so we can show that this campaign is not isolated that its part of a worldwide struggle against capitalism, a struggle against the profits of big business always being put before the needs of communities. During the G8 we had made some good connections in Scotland especially with other protest camps. So on the 3rd of February 4 of us from the Rossport Solidarity Camp headed off to Scotland in our trusty transit van.

Repression
FBI attack Independistas in Puerto Rico
14 Feb 2006
In a move reminiscent of a U.S. Marine invasion of a foreign country, the FBI descended in droves on Puerto Rico on February 10.
Without breathing a word of the invasion to either the colonial governor or the chief of police, heavily armed, militarized units of the FBI, including the Special Weapons and Tactics Unit from Miami, hit six different spots throughout the island. Their purpose, they claimed, was to execute search warrants on six independence activists they identified as suspected leaders of the clandestine independence organization, Ejercito Popular Boricua/Macheteros , the same organization whose legendary leader, Filiberto Ojeda Ríos, who the FBI assassinated five months earlier.

Monday : Dalkeith Final Push
23 Jan 2006

Today Monday 23rd an assault is under way on this main bottom camp. Monday morning sees the Dalkeith anti road protestors still occuppying the main protest site, although the police has fenced off the site from supporters and prepared for eviction from 9.30 am onwards. The northern access to the park on the A6094 is blocked of by police, too. Eight people, all people locked on at the ground as well as treesitters and protesters in the cargonets, have been arrested on Monday.

But spirits have been boosted by the many picnicers who visited the site on Saturday, showing their solidarity [1 | 2] with the battle to stop the A68 by-pass being put through the beautiful park south of Edinburgh.

Despite seven days of eviction attempts by the specialist National Eviction Team and police, some spectacular tree houses and aerial constructions still tower into the sky by the River Esk.

Updates:
[ 8 arrests on Monday | Eviction underway at Dalkeith bottom camp | No Female Climbers | Dalkeith final push | Tunnelers Evicted | Dalkeith Solidarity Call ]

Housing
Threat to old town Edinburgh
21 Jan 2006
After the successfull campaign to Save the Cameo and the surprising prevention of the Council Housing Stock Transfer, a group of concerned residents in Edinburgh have started to raise awareness of current development threats which puts profit over people. Plans to sell off Common Good Land and demolish listed flats and buildings at the Royal Mile, the area which includes the Canongate and Old Town, the World Heritage Site, for redevelopment are disputed, publicised and attacked.
More information under the Canongate Community Forum website.
