A free market is a market where you can get clothes, shoes, books, furniture bric a brac, and it is all completely free. Anyone can come and even bring unwanted goods and services to donate, you can recycle all your old things and give them a new home, in the mean time taking away goods for yourself.
We believe in a system that isn`t based on hierarchy, money and oppression, everyone is entitled to food and clothes and shelter. Everyone has things they don`t want anymore, and everyone has things they need, so if we combine the two, maybe we can solve this problem, bring the community together and show that we will not be controlled by selfish corporations who put profit over people.
Come and see what’s on offer this Sunday when we’ll be open with tea, coffee, vegan snacks, and other wonderful things!
“…an eyewitness account by publicist and activist Tomo Križnar from 1979 to 2012 of the secret exterminations of African natives from the areas of Sudan, rich in natural resources: The Nuba Mountains, Darfur, Abyei and Blue Nile. The film is a personal account of what one man can do with the help of like-minded people and friends, who still believe in the power of active commitment and refuse to give in to conformism…”
“(it) also tells the story of the birth of independent South Sudan and how its secession from Sudan brought about new wars between strategic interests of the world’s powers and both Sudans.”
Meeting tonight at the Brolly of local campaign Smash IPP – a group against ‘Imprisonment for Protection of the Public’ sentences, which are out-dated, used unfairly, and not benefitting anyone.
“IPP is a law that means that prisoners can be kept in jail after their sentence is over for the ‘protection of the public’ and even though this law has now been abolished, thousands of people are still locked up because of it. These people have no idea when they will be released, and some could potentially be in jail the rest of their lives.”
The idea of a new mega-prisons in the UK emerged in 2008, but failed due to opposition. Now back on the agenda, planning permission was granted in January 2014 for a Category C prison with the capacity to hold 2,100 adult male prisoners in Wrexham, North Wales.
Like all prisons, it will imprison poor, working class people, individuals with mental health challenges & learning disabilities, abuse survivors as well as people of colour and immigrants. The prison will cost more than £250 million to build.
Why organise in South Wales?
Several of the companies involved in the project are based in Wales. Resistance to the prison will need to be taken to the companies themselves. Once built, the prison will need to be kept full to ensure it is a profitable enterprise. People from communities in Wales and the North West will be who are sent there to ensure private companies can continue to profit from caging human beings.
