Public concerns over heavy-handed policing

Most activists are aware of the ever-increasing chance of being hurt in protests but is it any wonder there is fear around matters of policing in Britain when this happens in hospitals?This may be an old story as Mr Massey died in 2006 but the inquest is current ..."A HOSPITAL patient who died after being sprayed with CS gas and restrained by police had pleaded with his wife to take him home the day before.Victor Massey…See More

What brings you to NatCAN?
The need to join up the dots has brought me here; people up and down the country are being victimised and completely disempowered by the enforced austerity measures proposed by the UK government ... or so we're led to believe. This is not necessarily the case; it has in fact mobilised and politicised many who would otherwise be indifferent.

So why am I here ~ to raise awareness and to aid in the process of self-empowerment of and for the masses. I see the need for us to individually and collectively accept personal responsibility for the mess we find ourselves in ~ and to be equally responsible for finding solutions which help us to grow in a more equal society and in a much more sustainable way...

I look forward to being a part of a nationwide network of people and organisations promoting positive change.

Hello Lesley,

Have you only just got back, must be something to do with the ash cloud from Clydebank!

I enjoyed meeting and talking with you, keep the sense of humour.

Regards

Peter

Activists south of the border could almost certainly learn for your experiences in Scotland and maybe you can learn a trick or two from us too. Exploitation knows no frontiers and I don't see why we should.
