From November 28th - 30th, over 300 airline executives from all over the world will gather in London to discuss how to expand the aviation industry.

The baliffs and police will be on the street tomorrow to start the evictions for demolition to commence. Please come along and show your support as early as you can (by 8am preferably).

The last Friday of every month fields Critical Mass, Londonâ€™s weekly bike protest street party. We meet under Waterloo Bridge at 6pm, & ride at 7. At the last mass, end of September, after a week of protests against DSEI, the worlds biggest arms fair, held in the Docklands Excel centre, the police handed out letters explaining that because Critical Mass was an unlicensced protest, with no organiser & no official route, cyclists at the next Critical Mass would be facing arrest.
