Despite Israel lobby’s efforts, Tonge delivers clear message

Despite an extensive campaign of intimidation, abuse and vitriol by the pro Israel lobby, Hastings Palestine Solidarity Campaign succeeded in holding its planned talk by Jenny Tonge on Israel’s apartheid state – a victory, as HPSC says, for freedom of speech. The group’s Laurie Holden reports on the meeting, and describes the strenuous efforts which preceded it to overcome the attempts to disrupt it by the faceless defenders of an unacceptable Israel.

Rain fails to quench bonfire spirits

As darkness fell on Saturday evening and the annual torchlight procession set off, it seemed that the heavy rain which had been falling since late afternoon would drown out the proceedings, or at least quench people’s spirits. However, bonfire society folk are made of sterner stuff, and although many got soaked and some torches were extinguished, in the end the rain ceased halfway through the procession, allowing all and sundry to enjoy the bonfire and fireworks display. HOT photographer Russell Jacobs kept his camera dry and documented the event.

Last Sunday was not just another day – it was Beatles Day at the White Rock Theatre, where the crowds came streaming, the musicians, (whether in the first flush of youth or the creaking stages of old age), enjoyed their 15 minutes on stage and the takings for Macmillan Cancer Support kept mounting. Even getting soaked on the way home wasn’t enough to dampen Nick Terdre’s enthusiasm.
