Support for Walk-in Centre stays strong

Global Justice demonstrates great concern at General Dynamics

On Friday morning, 23 November, a group of assorted engineers, architects, farmers, teachers and scientists lead by Global Justice Now members and supported by anti-war campaigners from Hastings against War assembled outside General Dynamics in Castleham Road, Hastings. They had informed the company in advance and asked to speak to the Director about grave concerns they have about their parent General Dynamics Corporation in USA. There had been no reply from the Director, but information that he had a previous engagement. Nobody came to meet them, but they were promised a meeting soon.

Even little children know that the Walk-in Centre is an essential service

Sat 1 Dec: show you care about the Walk-in Centre

This Saturday at 1pm, you are invited to the fourth gathering outside the Walk-in Centre at Station Plaza, Hastings. HOT’s Erica Smith explains why she will be back at station plaza this Saturday.

Peace Pledge Union

White poppies for peace

You’ll have seen many red poppies around, as we approach Remembrance Day but white poppies are also available. They represent remembrance for all victims of war, military and civilian, a commitment to peace and a challenge to attempts to glamorise or celebrate war. HOT’s Zelly Restorick writes.

Queensbury House, Hastings

Destruction and robbery at Queensbury House

Hard to comprehend, but Queensbury House, home to many charities and not-for-profit organisations was broken into, vandalised and a lot of valuable, valued and necessary equipment stolen. Not that these actions would be okay in any circumstances, but in this case, whoever carried out this mindless vandalism can have no conscience and must have been pretty desperate, as they targeted young people, artists  musicians and the homeless. Zelly Restorick reports.

Catalysing economic change

Join the movement to create a fairer, more thoughtful economic system. Word is spreading that an alternative, local financial system is entirely possible: it’s already happening in other parts of this country and around the globe, so why not here? HOT’s Zelly Restorick encourages your active involvement and participation – and to not underestimate your individual personal power to change things for the better.
