Action: Other action
London Rising Tide will be joining the Climate Bloc at the TUC March on Saturday 20 October. This is the statement we will be marching under...
We are people from many different environmental campaigns. We are joining the TUC march on 20 October to be part of a huge popular challenge to austerity and the misery and hopelessness it is creating. We will march together on the 20th to raise the crucial question of tackling climate change and reducing greenhouse gas emissions as part of a future that works. Dealing with these issues together is possible, necessary and desirable. The climate is changing dramatically, and we are already seeing huge impacts on food prices and energy costs.

in many years of independent reporting, i've often seen situations where police have caused larger disruption than a handfull of protestors, closing roads, sometimes closing down businesses, and sometimes massively amplifying the power of the protestors alone (not that that's their intention). however, this evening was, i think, the first time that they so completely did the job of the activists for them, that the campaigners could sit in a nice warm pub and toast the met, instead of standing around in the cold themselves.
Thursday 10th November marked the sixteenth anniversary of the killing of ken saro-wiwa and eight other activists in nigeria. on the 9th, shell, complicit in their execution, was polishing its image by sponsoring an awards event for young entrepeneurs at the centrepoint building in central london. london rising tide organised a reminder of shell's bloody history outside the event, involving grim reapers, sombre drums, and hundreds of leaflets.

Crass Xmas commercialisation - aren'tcha just sickovit?
Well, here's the antidote: a Christmas fluffy-ish singing action - brave entrepid counterculture guerrilla warriors don Santa Suits, sing anti-consumerist and anti-capitalist Xmas carols and leaflet for more mindful attention to love, gifts, and climate change - in Oxford Street, the heart of the shopping district, on one of the busiest shopping days of the year!
On a chilly Saturday afternoon on 27th of November, Oxford street shoppers were distracted by the launch of London Rising Tide's sales and advertising team's new product, Nothing(c).
We decided to mark the annual Buy Nothing Day this year by giving out a thousand free samples of '˜Nothing' to the desperate shoppers scrabbling for the latest must-have item. On our stall we had Nothing for everyone: “ Nothing for Men, Nothing for Women, Nothing Lite, Nothing for Those who have Everything and Nothing - Now with even Less. A cheeky flyer explaining the authenticity of our product and giving a link to the Buy Nothing Day website was given out along with the box of Nothing.
