Anti-smelter march in London

Placard of protest (Trinidad, 2006)
Many of you have probably already heard of the international anti smelter demonstration (Trinidad and Iceland march) taking place in London on 27 October 2006. What they are doing is right up Greenlight's alley - a 'theatrical and interactive event' taking place in the streets to raise awareness. The organisers have christened the march as 'a funeral march to mark the murder of Karahnjukar, Iceland, and the impending murder of the Cedros Peninsula, Trinidad, at the bloody hands of Alcoa and heavy industry.'

They go on to say: 'Set in one of the financial capitals of todays Empire, this protest will mark the beggining of the joint struggle against the heavy industrial invasion of both Iceland and Trinidad.'

Read the full article here.

It has been suggested/requested that as a mark of solidarity, we wear all black on that day. Whatever else you/we can creatively do to echo the sentiments being expressed in London on the 27th, bring it forth.

Hey Greenlighters,
there's a new camp in your neighbourhood, outside the southern entrance of the UWI campus. Would love for you to come and shine some of your light on it. this friday in the morning, to coincide with the London demo there's a launch of this camp taking place. Would love to see you there!
Love and Spees
