While Green London is still holding strong in the former Paddington Green Police Station, we felt it was unfair to bring members of the public into a situation where they could be exposed to the aggressive and threatening behaviour of the police and bailiffs. We have therefore, while continuing our occupation of Green London, decided to open a new social space for our week of action: the Green Revolutionary Anticapitalist Social Space. GRASS!Continue reading “New week of action venue: welcome to GRASS!”
Was nice to meet Oli (and Rich!) from JOE.co.uk the other day! The GRASS (Green Radical Anticapitalist Social Space) was originally formulated as the result of a public assembly to come up with ideas to tackle capitalism in ways that not only ‘stick it to the man’, but demonstrate that it’s entirely practical and possible to build a new society. A society based on fairness, compassion, co-ordination and communal working and living. The sort of society where no one will be without a home or a chance to live a fulfilling life.Continue reading “Green Radical Anticapitalist Social Space (GRASS) in Paddington”
On the night of February 7th, a group of activists from the Green Anti-Capitalist Front, alongside squatters and other activists, occupied the abandoned High security police station at Paddington Green. The intention is to hold the space and turn it into a community centre, the activities of which will culminate in a week of action against capitalism.Continue reading “Paddington Green Police Station occupation in anticipation of our week of action”
The British government has been elected and, with the Tories in power, it looks bleaker for the future of our planet than ever before.
Now is the time to fight back.
To show resistance to the ecocide being committed by the capitalist class and supported by many in Parliament, we call you to join us for a Week of Action! Every day for a week in February (24/02–02/03) we will be organising events and protests to let the leaders and the people of this country know that we are here to fight for the survival of our planet by facing capitalism head on.
From reclaiming unoccupied buildings for our communities, organising workshops and social events to raise awareness and encourage self-reliance, to reclaiming public space for nature by guerilla gardening, and being loud and clear about our rage against profit-making by stockbrokers and their like at the expense of our planet and fellow humans – join our Week of Action, whether by organising yourselves locally or joining our actions, to let them know that even under Tory rule we’ll keep fighting capitalism for our planet!
Email email@example.com to get involved with organising.

On Friday we woke up to news that the Conservative Party, spearheaded by their new far-right vanguard, had won the election. The “FPTP” voting system and most media – stitched to the Tories – all working as intended, the Tories won a huge majority of seats without even half the votes of those who voted. We all know who will benefit from this continued slide into inequality and it’s not the majority, and definitely not the most vulnerable. On Saturday we awoke to the announcement that the island’s most infamous fascist Stephen Yaxley-Lennon had apparently joined the Conservative Party. There is no beating around the bush now: Britain has been captured by far-right nationalists who are waging an ecocidal class war.Continue reading “Where next for socialism in Britain?”
Hello friends! We are publishing the call from the Internationalist Commune and Isles Coordination for the NATO summit on the 3rd and 4th. The call is for people to join us in London for a mass demo on the 3rd, marching on Buckingham Palace where NATO leaders will be met by the queen, and/or to organise autonomous actions where you are on the 4th. Erdogan has confirmed his attendance, so it’s important we get as large a mobilisation and as many actions as possible!

We have organised this protest to demonstrate the contribution British banks and supermarkets are making towards environmental disaster and ecological destruction. We will be moving around Glasgow City Centre to picket a number of stores, with an open mic for anybody who wants to speak out against climate change. With very little time left to save our planet before it is too late, we need to take action now!
Saturday 23 November, 12noon – 2pm
Assemble the Royal Concert Hall Steps,
Capitalism is extinction! Imperialism is destruction!
This Friday (25th October)
Join us at the gates of BAE and MBDA to demand an end to the supply of
arms to the fascist Turkish State.
Golf Course Lane, Filton, BS34 7QS
BE THERE FOR 7AM!!
Workers arrive early and we want them to hear what we have to say.
At 4pm on October 9th, the Turkish occupation army and its Islamist allies
began their long-prepared war of aggression against the liberated areas of
northern Syria. Turkish military forces have carried out serious
violations and war crimes, including summary killings and unlawful attacks
that have killed and injured civilians. BAE and MBDA, with offices in
Bristol, supply arms to Turkey.
In 2017, BAE agreed a £100 million deal with the Turkish Air Force to
develop a new fighter jet. Theresa May signed a special export license to
ease the process of selling these weapons to Turkey. In January 2018, a
deal was finalised between the Turkish government and EUROSAM for a new
missile programme. EUROSAM is a joint venture between MBDA Missile Systems

It is we the workers who built these palaces and cities here in Spain and in America and everywhere. We, the workers, can build others to take their place. And better ones! We are not in the least afraid of ruins. We carry a new world here, in our hearts. That world is growing this minute.Buenaventura Durruti
On 14th October 2019, the supreme court of the Spanish state sentenced nine Catalan independence leaders to a combined total of 100 years in prison, for the crime of organising a democratic vote of self-determination. Within hours, a protest was launched at Barcelona’s airport, organised on an open-source mobile app called ‘Tsunami Democratic‘. Thousands of people shut down the airport, grounding flights and probably ruining many a tourist’s day. The police, as the violent enforcing arm of capitalism, charged at the protestors and beat them with batons, in an attempt to drive them away from the airport, immediately setting the tone on police response.Continue reading “Catalonia is Drowning”
Our struggle is the struggle against oppression and exploitation, the struggle against capitalism, against nation-state and against patriarchy. Now more than ever, we will continue the fight for a free and green Rojava. Because the land must be defended or there will be no place for the revolution.Make Rojava Green Again
This week, the Turkish state invaded North-East Syria (Rojava), intensifying its war with the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). Its aims are as transparent as they are horrible; the genocide of the Kurdish people, the ecocide of the local environment, and the annihilation of one of the world’s only bastions of freedom, equality, direct democracy, feminism and ecology. The SDF were on the frontlines of the war against Daesh (ISIL), fighting back from holding 3 small enclaves in the north, they chased Daesh back to the Euphrates where the last of the fascist horde’s territory was swept away. This did not mean the war against Daesh was over, but the United States under the Trump regime declared “job done” and gave the Turkish military the green light to invade.Continue reading “#RiseUp4Rojava – Call to Defend Democracy”
