The response from Alternative Estuary to this load of cobblers from the government: Boris Johnson could offer healthy eating 'rewards' after furious Tory backlash to tax plan. https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/boris-johnson-could-offer-healthy-24610241
Three days since the announcement about mandatory vaccine passports for 'crowded venues' and not a word from the anarchist 'movement' about the dire implications of this and where it could well lead to. It's as though they're living on a different planet to us mere mortals struggling to deal with the ongoing shitshow...
‘Freedom Day’…what a joke that was…
"Was anyone seriously expecting ‘Freedom Day’ to be anything other than an utter con? We certainly weren’t. Nor were the thousands of protesters who gathered around Parliament Square and Whitehall today (19.7) to let the government know that vaccine passports and other coercive measures would not be tolerated."

A simple question for Thurrock Council regarding Stanford-le-Hope railway station…
We're not giving up on this until we get a proper answer and a full apology from the council for this f**ing debacle. Meanwhile, there will be some posters going up:)
What an utter farce…
The failure of senior council officers to show up in person for a meeting + a broken video link resulted in a vital report into flooding across Thurrock not getting discussed. Back in January, a lot of residents were affected by flooding. We had a narrow escape with our home. Officers failing to show up in person to discuss the report into this is an insult we're not prepared to tolerate...
Review: A State of Fear
Plugging again because there are some comrades (current and former) who really need to read and digest the contents of this book...
The report into January’s flooding across Thurrock has finally arrived…
Our initial response is - some evasiveness mixed in with some useful measures. A more detailed response will follow - that will most likely be posted up on The Estuary Stirrer.

It felt good to be back doing this for the first time in over sixteen months:) Shifted a decent number of Alternative Estuary 'zines amongst other leaflets / flyers. Getting to the point where a few re-prints may be necessary...
