LABOUR MP ATTACKED AFTER MAY WHIPPED UP #Hate!!

LABOUR MP ATTACKED AFTER MAY WHIPPED UP #Hate!!

Brighton Kemptown Labour MP Lloyd Russell-Moyle was out in the streets of Kemptown with a film crew from ITV news today (21st March)

The day after Theresa May’s TV address to the nation, acussing MPs of betraying the people who voted for Brexit.

A man started shouting at Mr Russell-Moyle and the TV crew, calling them ‘traitors.’

The man then attacked the MP and broke his glasses. The man was apprehended by three men.

Lloyd Russell-Moyle tweeted this:

He tried to assault me, grabbed & bent my glasses and for a moment I thought he was going to hit me. 3 grown men had to prise him off me. This is not normal, I’m representing my constituents but @theresa_may has whipped up fear and division with her speech last night

A minory will fall for hate or division of May but attack’s like this afternoons will not make me frit. Only by standing up & not pandering will we gain decency for our nation. One way to stand up to fear is to join the march on Saturday & demand a #FinalSay and @Another_Europe.’

AMBER RUDD AND THE NAZI

I WANT TO BE PM!

Amber Rudd only won her seat by 346 votes!!

The Home Secretary only won her seat of Hastings and Rye by 346 votes after a recount.

The top job in the Conservative party could be available very soon.

Amber Rudd run a very bad election campaign.

In 2015, When asked why she wanted to be MP for Hastings she said “I wanted to be within two hours of London and I could see we were going to win it!”

In 2017 Amber Rudd was asked the average price of a house in Hastings and she said….

In public Amber Rudd has said she supports Theresa May, 100%

But in the last few weeks Amber Rudd has employed Lynton Keith Crosby!?

Thinking there might be a snap election, the Home Secretary has placed adverts for help to spread her message in Hastings on Saturday 21st October, she advertised for paid support to show Hastings how popular she is, on facebook and online.

Amber Rudd has paid for people to come down to her seat from London and Oxford!!!

And it turns out one of her top supporters coming to Hastings, from Oxford University, George Wright, , posted this on facebook….

Good luck and keep it real in Hastings

Amber!

HAPPY XMAS FROM ARMED POLICE 

2016 has been an awful year for so many reasons. But today this was posted on FaceBook.

HAPPY XMAS

From Northumbria police

Our Firearms Support Unit (FSU) have been taking in the fantastic atmosphere of Newcastle’s Christmas market this morning.
It may be a bit chilly out and about but there have been a lot of smiley faces with there being just two more Fridays until Christmas!
Don’t be alarmed if you do see our armed officers, they are there purely for reassurance and to make people feel safe.
These patrols have begun following the announcement from the Home Office last year that armed patrols would be stepped up across the country.
Our FSU officers are just regular police at the end of the day and if you have any concerns make sure you go and have a chat.

​THE CHANCELLOR’S BIG ‘CON’ ON THE NATIONAL LIVING WAGE!

​THE CHANCELLOR’S BIG ‘CON’ ON THE NATIONAL LIVING WAGE!

The chancellor will unveil in the autumn statement, that the National living wage will rise to £7.50 an hour in 2017. He will use this announcement to feed into the spin that the government are on the side of the “just about managing” – or “Jams”.

But according to forecasts by the independent Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR), an advisory public body established by the UK government to provide independent economic forecasts, the National living wage should go up to £7.60 in 2017, if it is to reach the government pledge of £9.00 an hour by 2020.

So Philip Hammond is in fact making a cut to the lowest paid workers wages by 10p an hour.

FAR-RIGHT PLAN TO HIJACK REFUGEE DEMO IN AMBER RUDD’S SEAT!

On Saturday 22nd October Hastings Supports Refugees are holding a food donation day in support of refugees in Calais and the local Hastings Food Bank. A tiny neo-Nazi group from Portsmouth called South Coast Resistance (also known as “Pie and Mash”) have said they are coming to Hastings on that day to demonstrate against refugees.

Hastings is in the parliamentary seat of Home Secretary Amber Rudd, who has been caught up in a backlash against her, after she announced, at the Conservative party conference, that all businesses in the UK would have make a list of all foreign employees. Amber Rudd has now backtracked on the idea, after it was compared to Nazi party policies.

This is why Saturday has become such a symbolic day for many, to show they reject the politics of hate and this is not how we want Post-Brexit Britain to be.

Local group Hastings Solidarity and Hastings Momentum have put a URGENT CALL-OUT.

Hastings solidarity statement said: ‘Come down to Hastings town centre near Debenhams this Saturday to show the world what solidarity looks like. 

Please share this call out as widely as possible – bring friends, family, comrades, neighbours, workmates. We need to have as many people out as possible.

Join us in solidarity with our brothers and sisters who come here from across the sea as refugees fleeing war and terror – and with our friends and family here in our community who are suffering the effects of the government’s class war austerity measures, declining wages and homelessness. 

Bring flags, banners, signs and food to donate. Come and stand with us and show some Hastings hospitality!

There is a role for everyone on Saturday – whether you’re happy to wave a sign or help with the donations, hand out leaflets and talk to passers-by, or get involved in physically defending our town from Fascists. Please be there.’

ONE OF THE UK’s MOST DISABLED-FRIENDLY UNIVERSITY CAMPUSES, DUE TO BE SHUT!

ONE OF THE UK’s MOST DISABLED-FRIENDLY UNIVERSITY CAMPUSES, DUE TO BE SHUT!

10/05/16 Hastings.

On Tuesday 8th March 2016 it was announced that the University of Brighton would be shutting down it’s three sites in Hastings within the next two years.

The decision made by the Board of Governors, was made after a presentation was given to them by a ‘independent’ company, who the newly appointed Vice-Chancellor Debra Humphris had commissioned to do a report. A report Unions have applied a FOI to see, which was turned down and is currently been appealed.

The decision came as a complete shock to the students, staff and local residents.

It will effect over 600 students, hundreds of staff and have a massive impact on the local economy.

£12m of public money was spent on the three sites, in one of the most deprived areas in England.

The sites were designed to be one of the most accessible Campuses for disabled people in the Country.

This decision has been made without any consultation with staff, students or unions.

There have been no impact assessments, especially for disabled Students.

Mark SU Harvey, Officer for Disabilities at the University of Brighton said:

‘ Having worked for several different Universities giving advice on disabled access and having visited many, it is notable the lack of  disabled access in these places.

‘ However, Hastings is a unique place with full disabled access to all buildings; it is small and situated in an understanding town with lots of support for students from caring staff. This should be both preserved and encouraged, as other universities have to create policies to make this happen.

‘ After attending the recent NUS Disabled delegation in Manchester, I realized how envious others are of what we have in Hastings. I cannot see how management could justify removing this, when other campuses fall far short of the mark.’

BEHIND THE SPIN, MILLIONS OF WORKING FAMILIES STILL HIT BY WELFARE CUTS!!

BEHIND THE SPIN, MILLIONS OF WORKING FAMILIES STILL HIT BY WELFARE CUTS!!

Research commissioned from the House of Commons library shows that 
next year over half a million working familes, already on Universal credit, will lose up to over £2500.

By 2020, when Universal credit will be fully rolled out, Some 2.6 million working families will lose an average £1,600 as a result of benefit changes due to come into force under the universal credit system.

Owen Smith, the shadow work and pensions secretary, said
” It is now quite apparent that the chancellor only offered a partial reversal of his cuts to working people’s incomes in last week’s statement. Next year, half a million families may be hit by cuts to tax credit’s successor, universal credit,”

“This newly commissioned research shows that working families on universal credit still face devastating losses next year. A 23-year-old single parent, with two children working 30 hours a week on the minimum wage, is set to lose £2,500.”

In its analysis of the autumn statement and spending review, the IFS said other commentators had been wrong to describe the chancellor’s measures as an end to austerity. The IFS director, Paul Johnson, said: “This is not the end of austerity. This spending review is still one of the tightest in post-war history.”

FEEDING, CLOTHING HOMELESS BANNED IN HASTINGS AGAIN!!

❤UPDATED❤

On 26th Aug, a member of Love Kitchen, Hastings, was contacted by Hastings Council, who  two and a half months ago tried to shut down Love Kitchen. But backed down after a petition, protest, media and social media campaign.The council have now said if Love kitchen do not get a food operator licence, insurance etc. It will be shut down. Just as winter is coming!

On Sunday 28th June Love Kitchen Hastings, a group of Hastings residents, inspired by Love Activists London, to feed and clothe Homeless people, were told that their regular weekly stall in Hastings town centre must stop!

Chris Oliver, founding member of Love Kitchen has been in conversation with Hastings Council over the last few week. Chris said; ” At first they wanted to move us down into an alleyway where we “would not be seen” . I negotiated with them to use the upper circle outside Poundstretcher. Today they turned up and told us that if we continued we could face prosecution as we did not have a Street Trading Licence. They then said we would not receive one anyway. They said that we were also breaking food safety laws but have not explained exactly what is required. If we get shutdown then I fear that many regulars will not eat on Sunday. It has been referred to as Suicide Sunday which is why we come out this day.”

Love Kitchen, Hastings was set up by local people in February 2015, after being inspired by Love Activists, London, who over Christmas 2014 occupied a bank in the heart of the West-End of London, to shelter, feed and clothe Homeless people and highlight the growing issue of poverity.

Many people all over the UK have also  set up Love Kitchens.Brighton Love Kitchen is in the heart of the city and has not been stopped.

Love Activists London

Love Kitchen member Zeeta Mcbrine
Said : ”  I am just shocked at the lack of compassion and support the council have given us. We are all human and need the same basic things to survive in this world. Hastings council have already let these people down by allowing the system to discard them onto the streets. The council have a duty of care and they have failed each and every one of the people whom come to us, it is now the communities chance to succeed where the council had failed.

There are many Love Kitchens around the UK that are fully supported by their local councils and I cannot see any reason other than ignorance as to why Hastings Council have taken this unfair and unwarranted decision to close us down and threaten us with prosecution. ”

Anton Burton on Hastings Council’s decision said: ”  As the organiser of the St Leonard’s street market on kings road I can assure you that you do not need a street trading consent to give away clothes as long as you are not charging, although you may be required to have public liability insurance, there are issues with food but nothing that cannot be easily worked towards.”

Hastings Council have so far failed to respond to questions or comment on the ban.

When asked why the action by Hastings Council to shut Love Kitchen down should matter to people, Chris Oliver said : ” It would be difficult to count everyone it has helped. The people that come up to the table have welcomed the support and some cases come up for the chance to be treated like a human for once. Just being spoken to and listened to as normal person is something that many miss out on.”

Please support Love Kitchen, Hastings and help change Hastings Council mind.

LEAKED HASTINGS COUNCIL INTERNAL EMAIL SHOWS PRESSURE GROWING

image

It has been over four days since Hastings Council tried to close down Love Kitchen, a group of people giving free clothing, support and food to Homeless people and anyone who needs help, since February.

The response from people across the World has been overwhelming.

People have spread the #Love from local residents to Focus E15 to Artist Taxi driver to a Homeless person in Scotland.

Over 1000 people signed the petition in 3 days.

Mainstream media have started to catch up.

This has forced Hastings Council to send out an internel Email to all Council workers and reads…

Dear colleagues,
>
>As at least some of you are aware, there has been
considerable social media in the last couple of days about the ‘Love Kitchen’,
and our involvement with it..
>
>Please find below our statement on this :-
>
>

>The ‘Love Kitchen’, Wellington Place, Hastings
>
>Hastings Borough Council is
committed to working with, and for, its most vulnerable residents.
>
>It has been aware for some time about the operation of the ‘Love Kitchen’, a voluntary operation which provides food, drink and other help to homeless people and other vulnerable people in Hastings. It is keen to work with the Love Kitchen to ensure that both organisations’ aims can be met.
>
>Although the Love Kitchen is not selling goods, and so doesn’t need a street trading licence, food hygiene laws still apply irrespective of whether food is sold, or given away. We certainly wouldn’t expect vulnerable people to be served food which did not meet food hygiene standards, and we have advised the operators of the Love Kitchen to register their operation with Rother District Council, where they are based. This is simply to provide protection to those who are receiving
the food, ensuring it is safely prepared, stored, displayed and served.
>
>We must refute any suggestion or implication that we somehow don’t care for, or provide help for, homeless and other vulnerable people here.
>
>The council pays the Seaview project locally for an outreach worker to work with and support members of the street community, the homeless people who sleep on the streets of Hastings. We have also provided funding to pilot a street outreach activities programme operating out of the Seaview Centre
>
>The Council has also provided funding for a drug and alcohol outreach worker, which proved successful and is now funded by the Hastings & Rother Clinical Commissioning Group (‘CCG’), part of the NHS.
>
>Members of the council’s housing options team attend weekly multi agency drop in sessions at Seaview and are working with the CCG to provide additional support to members of the street community.

>
>And we are part of a Sussex-wide working group that is coordinating efforts to address rough sleeping across the county. Government funding has been obtained over the last three years to provide a rough sleepers outreach service and to improve joint working and information sharing across all statutory and voluntary organisations who seek to prevent homelessness and rough sleeping. In 2014/15 the Council and partners assisted 64 single homeless people off the street and into suitable accommodation.
>
>Because we do try and encourage a
joined-up approach with other organisations, we would be very keen to help find partners with whom the Love Kitchen can work, rather than it operating in some isolation, as it does now.
>
>In conclusion, Hastings Borough Council does alot of work to support its most vulnerable residents, and is happy to work with the Love Kitchen to identify a suitable location that they can work from, and is properly licensed and regulated. We also encourage them to work through established local charities working with homeless people.

There are many things to say about this Email.

But the most shocking thing is that since Sunday the Council have not contacted Love Kitchen.

Please carry on spreading the Love💖
