Vigilantes or Community Organisation?

Local community organising groups defend their neighbourhood from police attack and reported police looting. They are also organising street cleaning teams.  Some news reports have wrongly reported them vigilantes or street thugs. Uprising against Mubarak, Cairo, Egypt.

How To Look Good Protesting

I’ve been asked to exhibit some work and do some media training at Netroots UK tomorrow. The original title for the workshop was “How to look good protesting”, which I thought was fantastic because I’ve accumulated many images of naked protesters over the years.

Unfortunately it has now been changed to “Getting your action across better in the media” which is a bit dryer, but I’m sure we can work with it.

Images of the Global Movement – photographs by Jess Hurd will be exhibited in the Marble Hall, TUC Congress House for one day only.
