CBI Planning/Banner Making Meeting

ok, well done to the whole TWO people who managed to make it the meeting on sunday roll eyes wink . nevermind, we decided to postpone production of brum brum which i think is a good cos the cbi thing wouldn't be the best time to hand it out if things go well, i reckon a gig or stall is the best time for that.

anyway, what we did decide was to have a banner making workshop/planning meeting type thing next saturday at the same place, the day before the cbi conf. so far ideas for a banner (this would be a general banner we can use for other stuff) are (other than saying west midlands anarchists) "Against All Authority, For Total Liberty" and "People In Power Are Shit, Shit On Them", does anyone have any better ideas? likewise, any other ideas for anti-cbi placards other than "Cretins Bastards Inbreds - Only Bosses Support The CBI!"?

hope people can make this meeting, apparently various other groups are going to be protesting so this won't just be us out on our own with only the cops keeping us company, and this is a nice opportunity to make our presence felt before we start running around doing stalls. also, we have some ideas for actions which i want to keep off the internet before they happen to maintain the element of surprise (nothing too hardcore, but still needs to be unannounced)...

yep the two people phoned. if you all meet at the bottom of the escalators in new street station at 1pm that would be good, one of them will have arrived by then so if he can meet you, you can all get lost on the way to the place together, won't that be nice? text or phone if you are going to be there so i can tell him. if you don't have my number say and i'll pm it to you.

i suppose i'll have to make an even bigger effort to tidy this time if people are sleeping and painting banners and stuff. hmm, oh yes, depending on things, which i'll say by tomorrow, you may have to arrive a bit later than 2, as i might go off pestering rich wankers chasing foxes in the morning, not sure yet.

anyway, see some of you on sat, and hopefully all on sunday.

i mean the escalators before the barriers, not the ones going down to the platforms. there's only one of them. or you could meet at the top of them, i think there's less cctv cameras up there, not that they'll care on saturday... will pm you all my number then you can let me know asap if you're coming and if you'll be there at 1 so my mate can meet you all.
