Support the Badger Cull saboteurs!

We’ve just received a request to share this info. Please support the tireless and committed people who are taking to the fields and the woods to save our wildlife. Badgers are in the firing line again; victims to ignorant, short sighted and ruthless government policy. There is mounting opposition to the cull both on ethical and scientific grounds. More information can be found here:

Here is where you can donate. Please share this info and encourage friends and family to support direct action in defence of our wildlife:

OH YEAH!!!! We’re very excited about this! So many great bands, top politics and a proper punk and organised crew putting it on. And it’s in a field! Proper job!

We’re very pleased to be playing on the Pumpkin Records stage Sunday evening, 6.30pm. See ya there!

Sunday 30th Aug: Rebel Soul stage at Shambala festival

So this weekend Spanner is off to sample a bit of Utopia – well that’s what it says on the tin anyway! Apparently it’s going to be instated at Shambala festival. We think there might be some new song material here…

Anyway, we’re playing at the Rebel Soul stage, Sunday night at 00.15. So yes, that means pace yourselves, possibly an afternoon power snooze and lashings of soya cappuccino darlings!

Rebel Soul are mixing music and politics throughout the festival in recognition of the fact that Utopia doesn’t come without a struggle! Funds raised at the stage and cafe go to support social movements and radical campaigns and initiatives. So if you’re at Shambala check out their programme and cafe. Dude.

Spanish anarchists solidarity fundraiser – No estan solos!

On the 16th December Catalan police raided 14 houses and social enters in Barcelona and Madrid, destroying or stealing everything of value. Without concrete accusations and with the greatest secrecy, 11 comrades were sent to a high court in Madrid. 4 have been released with charges and 7 have been locked up (in part for supporting the 2 anarchists who have already been in prison for the past year). So that’s now 7 people imprisoned simply for being anarchists.

The situation in Spain has taken a massive turn lately when the state passed the new ‘Gag’ laws. These laws basically mean complete control from a totalitarian and fascistic regime, here is a few examples of what is now ‘illegal’ and can face hefty fines. Google to find out the full list.

Photographing or recording police – 600 to 30.000€ fine.
Peaceful disobedience to authority – 600 to 30.000€ fine.

Meeting or gathering in front of Congress – 600 to 30.000€ fine.
It allows random identity checks, allowing for racial profiling of immigrants and minorities.
Police can now carry out raids at their discretion, without the need for “order” to have been disrupted.

To show solidarity, Riot Ska Records (us) and Pumpkin Records will be donating any money made through their Bandcamp pages to the Spanish anarchists for legal costs, fines, and whatever they think it’s best used for.
