The far right, bolstered by a racist and xenophobic government, is growing in confidence. The response to Boris Johnson's hard-right vision for society and threat to our basic rights must be equally confident.

In preparation for the planned attack on our city and communities on 31 Oct (Brexit day), we planned a day of practical resistance skill sharing. The Antiuniversity,…

How are fossil fuel resources captured and controlled? Through arms. How are communities, whose lands are rich with fossil fuels, displaced or strong armed by governments and corporations? Through arms. The displacement of people, environmental destruction and increased greenhouse gas emissions are inescapably part of modern warfare enabled by the arms trade.
