Circle Community Anniversary Take1
21min - Activists of the Circle Community have a 1st year Anniversary Party at the St. George's Theatre. After the first track, the clip features an introduction by Phoenix, a poem by Paradox - 'Whats My Name'; the song 'Other Worlds are Possible - an end to war' by Sarah Bear; and a second song accompanied by Phoenix and Rob the Rub, followed by Paradox performing a second poem 'Don't Panic'. The former church and theatre building in London's Borough of Islington had been occupied as part of a campaign to stop it being lost to the community as a result of the local authority selling it into the private sector. Islington Council responded by sending in the bailiffs within about a month of this event (shame on Islington Council).

Sustainable Development or sustained development? In Rio de Janeiro, the walls were built higher around the favellas and ghettos, while the politicians sped past in limousines, the street homeless kids were rounded up and shot. The children of the world produced their own Agenda for the twenty first century which was called "rescue mission planet earth" pointing out all the things the adults had left out in the repair plan for the earth. Being aware of this a group of intrepid folk in the UK began to reclaim urban space, squatting and recycling empty buildings into Rainbow Centres, DIY Centres, Do-it-yourself culture, DIY environment centres, direct action, do it yourself Agenda 21, not willing to wait for the politicians and multinationals to squander the last of the earths resources.
