You meet friends in unexpected places, so the saying goes, but for No2Nato making friends has been just as easy as making enemies. The demand is clear, pithy and powerful – withdraw Britain from Nato, cease fanning the flames of war.
Since tweets criticising Conway Halls handling of the situation of the cancellation of our booking, we have received correspondence from their Management stating they will pursue legal action against us if we do not remove videos and tweets criticising their actions (most of which were not made by us but others such as journalist Peter Hitchens) or a photograph of their cancellation email. We reject these threats of legal recourse, and threats against our right to speak the truth.

Men who are sincere in defending their freedom, will always feel concern at every circumstance which seems to make against them; it is the natural and honest consequence of all affectionate attachments, and the want of it is a vice. But the dejection lasts only for a moment; they soon rise out of it with additional vigor; the glow of hope, courage and fortitude, will, in a little time, supply the place of every inferior passion, and kindle the whole heart into heroism.
UK energy regulator “Ofgem” is to investigate suppliers who switch vulnerable energy customers to pre-payment meters by force.
Soledar was taken at great expense of both Russian and Ukrainian lives, Bakhmut is set to be an even more brutal struggle as Germany buckles to US pressure to deploy tanks to Ukraine.

At the end of 1945 the vast majority of humanity were celebrating the close of the most deadly war in history, the Second World War. In Europe, the Nazi menace had been crushed on the plains of Eastern Europe and in the streets of Berlin by the Red Army, at that time our greatest ally. In Western Europe the British and American’s had finally opened a second front in France that had the Germans penned in.

Here were people who were probably a lot like my own forebears here in County Durham, who had worked down mines, who had cared for the sick, who were good at fixing things and were willing to aid family, friends and strangers alike in their hours of need. Donbass will always have a place in my heart for this reason, and if I ever get to go there, I will tell them what I’ve just told you, that their suffering was not lost on many of us here in the west – we heard them, and their struggle spoke to our hearts. I’ll finish this piece here with that thought – thank you dear reader for persisting this far, and may we meet our own struggle here in the imperialist core with that same courage and determination!
