V For Video Activist
SchMOVIES DVD Collection 2006

The pick of the SchMOVIES produced in 2006, covering events across the UK such as the Smash EDO campaign, protest camps at Titnore Woods and Shepton Mallet, the Camp For Climate Action, anti-war demos at Parliament Square in the face of SOPCA laws, community resistance to the M74 motorway in Glasgow, and more... One theme that runs through these films is the blatant use of a 'political police force' to protect corporations and war criminals rather than uphold the law. But despite this, people are prepared to take direct action and not let a police state goosestep in. Remember... People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

Sack Parliament protest where police use SOCPA lawsSeriously Organised
Sack Parliament Protest - October 9th 2006

The much publiced ‘sack parliament’ anti-war demo at the heart of Westminsters ‘exclusion zone’ gave the Serious and Organised Crime and Punishment Acr (SOPCA) a thorough work out for the first time. The plan was to surround Parliament and prevent MPs, Lords and Civil Servants from continuing business after their Summer recess. 800 cops had other ideas.

  • If you witnessed any of the forty arrests on the day contact www.sackparliment.org.uk
  • At the beginning of the demo a journalist Mark Vallee was assaulted by the Police and was hospitalised if you witnessed or filmed this please contact: marc@protestphoto.co.uk

Video Nasties - police film demonstrators in BrightonVideo Nasties

During Israel’s attacks on Gaza and the Lebanon, Sussex Action for Peace held its second march on August 19th, protesting about the West’s lack of response to war crimes in the Middle East. Before the march began it soon became apparent that Sussex Police were having none of it. Apart from the obvious Police overkill and crappy excuses for changing the route of the march, the number of police FIT teams that were deployed was way beyond the norm – even filming kids in buggies!

Remember, if you are filmed by the Police at a demo you have the right to obtain a copy of the footage they took. A good place to start is www.dataprotection.gov.uk because if you contact the police station directly they will invariably fob you off.

Smash EDO Trilogy 2006SMASH EDO TRILOGY 2006

A round up of three actions on Brighton's very own bomb making factory, EDO/MBM.

AN INSPECTOR CALLS - March 2006. The Brighton Weapons Inspection team return for a second attempt to enter the EDO factory on the third anniversary of the Iraq War. However, security guru Mark Lynch and the cops have other ideas.

LOCKED ON TARGET - July 2006. With Israel attacking the Lebanon and Gaza, three activists lock on to concrete barrels, blocking both gates of the factory.

SHAME - July 2006. "The Horrors of War" demo planned weeks before the Israel attacks started is sobering reminder of the aims of the SMASH EDO campaign. Workers from the factory get a thorough verbal kicking as they head home from work.

Naked Bike RideTHE BIG COVER UP

'World Naked Bike Rides' took place in cities everywhere on June 10th 2006.

The Bike ride is a “carnival on wheels” protesting against the perils of car culture and oil dependency as well as highlighting the right to be naked. This film covers the World Naked Bike Ride in Brighton, which ran into problems when Chief Superintendent Jeremy Paine of Sussex Police deemed it fit to restrict riders from being fully naked, telling them to cover up their “rude bits”. The ride went ahead regardless and SchMOVIES catches up with several riders to see what they thought up about this great cover up.

No Borders No NationOUT OF HARMS WAY
No Borders action at Harmondsworth Detention Centre, 8th April 2006.

Following a call out by the Australian Noborders nearly 300 folk converged on Harmondsworth and Colnbrook detention centres, near Heathrow to show solidarity with the detainees held there.

Whilst a large Police presense kept everyone contained outside, the guards inside forced the detainees away from the windows so they couldn't see the demo. Subsequently hunger strikes began in Colnbrook.

Shot AwaySHOT AWAY

"I am the only one in this room, professional enough, that I know of, to handle this Glock 40" - famous last words

This gem has been floating about the web since it was shot in April 2004. It shows Drug Administration Agent Lee Paige shooting himself in the foot - literally! During a weapons demonstration for Florida children, Paige's firearm (a Glock 40) accidently discharged blowing a hole in his foot - and it was all caught on camera. As a result Paige is suing the DEA over leaking the film into the public domain. (See also 'And Finally...' in SchNEWS 540)
