Globalise Resistance

ABOUT 100 anti-incinerator campaigners protested outside the Environment Agency in Swansea last Friday. Thousands of objections to a new incinerator have been handed in.

We need to build on the excellent support that we already have and increase the pressure on the Environment Agency, the council and the Welsh Assembly.

THIRTY WHITE-suited protesters wearing skeleton masks and carrying a large "Don't XXXX with our food" banner held a protest outside Sainsbury's at Buchanan Galleries in Glasgow last week.

Globalise Resistance and Scottish Genetix Action organised the protest as part of an international day of action against genetically modified (GM) foods. Dundee Globalise Resistance protesters also demonstrated outside the Scottish Crop Research Institute.

DELEGATES TO the GM Foods Conference in Norwich last week couldn't concentrate on their dinner. About 40 people, including Socialist Alliance supporters, paraded on the other side of the glass exterior of the Sainsbury Centre at the University of East Anglia.
