Spring roundup: Mischief, Cuts and Campaigns

c_merengo | 24.05.2011 19:19 | Oxford

Mischief: In response to the nationalist hype, several hundred people gathered for a "Never Mind the Royal Wedding" street party on Manzil Way to create "some mischievous DIY fun". Elsewhere various other mischievous creatures were using unorthodox methods to spread radical messages.

Cuts: As youth centres closed, in spite of protests and lobbying, campaigners drew attention to the impact cuts will have on refugees, asylum seekers, and disabled people while the traditional Mayday workers' demo had an anti-cuts theme.

Campaigns: Three Christian peace activists are on trial for taking action against Aldermaston, a nuclear weapons lab near Reading. Meanwhile monthly demos in support of the migrants locked up in Campsfield "House" continue.

Misc: There was also a review of the latest OARC film screening. For other condensed local info, see the events calendar, (which now works with more programs and gadgets) and recent local blog roundup.
