Dropping Rocks and Sawing Heads
One of my readers has referred me to a Google cache of a now hidden article on Bristol Indymedia (offline in any case) which tells an interesting story. It's the original post which caused the controversy.
alternative panel-beating for oxygen.Recognizing the criminal nature of the above, Indymedia contributor 'Zaskar' reported the matter to the Police and subsequently felt the wrath of other Indymedia types.
with the G8 on the horizon, we looked for a simple yet effective way to stick two fingers up to this oil-addicted society.we found one! a train that carries brand-new cars from portbury dock nr avonmouth through the avon gorge to ashton and bedminster to desperse at temple meads for the rest of the country. Some questions that came into our little minds were:is portbury dock fianancially-competative? [yes], who paid for the tracks and maintance from portbury to parson St bedminster?. has anyone ever seen a passenger train on this route?,and sitting on a hot coach because you can't afford hiked-up train fayres, you see yet more new cars you can't afford to buy being transported by rail,to consume more oil, that our enviroment can't take. So we did an oxygen-grab as a kind of work-out up to the summit.Lifting and then dropping rocks onto useless pieces of metal.[17/06/05] We are feeling fit now for the greedy-ate, we suggest others should take aim and practice. The forth-coming event around gleneagles will not automatically mean a head-on confrontation with the old-bill, they have more spiteful weapons than us, so let us side step them and unbalance them using our minds. good luck stay free, S.P. ray.
You can read his public mauling here from about post 535 onward (registration required, bugmenot.com is your friend) and a slightly more rational discussion here.
Zaskar has made a short-film about his expulsion.
'Death of a Troll', a faked beheading kicks off this compilation, then some beheading outtakes and finally the very poignant 'Death of A Terrorist'.Indymedia Akhbar! Indymedia Akhbar!
Glad you were amused by our film.
They got a server box donated to them recently:
It is not clear what the money they raised to buy a new server will now be spent on.
