Stella Creasy’s Jukebox (for One Billion Rising) – with apologies to Coldplay…

February 12, 2013 10:09 am

One Billion Rising is an international coalition of campaigners speaking out for action to tackle violence against girls and women across the world. As part of celebrating the 15th Anniversary of V-Day on 14 February 2013, through combining creativity with campaigning, it is generating what some are calling a ‘feminist tsunami’. From Norwich to Peru, through Bute, Manila and Luxembourg via San Fransisco and Nigeria, activists are organising flashmobs, performances and seeking policy changes that speak to our simple message. To date over 13,000 organisations are now involved in planning events for the 14th February in nearly 190 countries. In the UK on Thursday 14th February there will be over 160 local events as well as a series of campaign actions in London itself. To see the full list please visit the www.onebillionrising.org website.

To mark this, LabourList’s reigning MP of the year (and noted Indie fan) Stella Creasy has recorded the following Indie themed video to draw attention to One Billion Rising – with apologies to Coldplay…:

    Johann Lamont denies quit rumours

    Scottish Labour leader Johann Lamont has denied rumours that she’s planning to quit – and says that she can beat the presumptive next SNP leader and First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, telling the Daily Record “I wouldn’t stand against her if I didn’t think I’d beat her”. Rumours have circulated in recent weeks that Lamont would step down after the referendum campaign – especially after her Glasgow constituents voted for independence – with Jim Murphy just one of those linked with […]

    Hours before Tory conference starts – ANOTHER Tory MP defects to UKIP

    First Douglas Carswell quit the Tories to join UKIP. Now Mark Reckless has acted like his name and joined the Purple Peril – and has just been announced as the latest defector at UKIP conference. Labour’s attack line is of course that UKIP are “More Tory than the Tories”. Reckless gave a speech that will have only backed that up. Have a great time in Birmingham Dave…. Update: Michael Dugher is straight out of the traps to react to the Reckless […]

    Labour conference, Ed Miliband and the English question

    With all the usual attention to the policy thrust of the Leader’s speech, too few commentators recognised the radical new approach to England when Ed Miliband’s spoke to conference on Tuesday. Identity, an inescapable part of politics in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland for years, is now part and parcel of English politics. It’s true, as Ed Miliband argued, that a desire for wider change drove much of the Scottish campaign. But once people see the chance of change tied […]

    Labour’s attack line for this week?: “The Tories: for a privileged few”

    As journalists, lobbyists, and even a few Tory members head to Conservative Party conference in Birmingham, it seems there’s a new Labour Party masthead on their press releases this week. Labour’s key message this week? The Tories are for the “privileged few”: There’s even a briefing document outlining Labour’s lines of attack. Meanwhile, here’s the masthead of Labour’s UKIP press releases: The next week is going to be about attack, it seems…
