Action against Veolia at Science Oxford Live

Thanks to all of you who supported our action against Veolia at Science Oxford over the past 7 weeks, and special thanks to those of
 you who came out week after week (even in dreadful weather on a couple
of occasions).  It was great to have a united joint effort with Women
in Black and the students' Palestine Society.
All that is left to do is to make sure that the Natural History Museum
and Science Oxford do not take sponsorship from Veolia in future.  If
you haven't already contacted them about this it is not too late!!

WIB - Drones

Today 12th Nov, a WIB vigil took place in Bonn Sq on the subject of Drones. It is very concerning that so many people have no idea what they are. If they have heard of them they do not have any idea what they can do and as Drones are very much cheaper than bombers and with no UK military casualties [even when they fall from the skies] most people will see them as benevolent instead of probably illegal under international law

People's Charter to create a non-violent world

News from sisters in Melbourne: "We are going to launch 'The People's Charter to Create a Nonviolent World' in Melbourne, Australia on 11 November 2011 in a major public signing event. The date 11 November 2011 marks the (93rd) anniversary of the signing of the Armistice for The Great War (World War 1) in 1918. The idea behind this proposal is to get people to sign up to a new sense of being involved in a shared worldwide nonviolent movement of 'ordinary' people committed to ending violence in all of its forms."

"Without health life is not life; it is only a state of languor and suffering - an image of death."
