More details:

The show starts with a live intro to Nazi Punks Fuck Off from The Dead Kennedys and a studio version of the song. We then have a extract from Lyn Gerry's reading of Richard K. Moore's "Escaping The Matrix" essay on divide and rule which has been taken from episode #87 of Unwelcome Guests and was repeated in Unwelcome Guests #505.

After the show run down we have the upcoming events slot from Bob from alt-sheff with news about upcoming happenings in and around Sheffield including festivals in August.


Odette Sefuko, fled the Democratic Republic of Congo via Uganda in fear of her life five years ago and came to the UK to claim asylum. A meeting to launch the Campaign Against the Deportion of Odette Sefuko on 14th July featured a screening of The Greatest Silence: Rape in the Congo, a film produced and directed by Lisa F. Jackson and we have an extract of her from 2008 talking with Mike McCormick on Mind Over Matters, the full 30 min interview, is available on the A-infos radio project at There is a Facebook page for the Campaign Against the Deportion of Odette Sefuko at

Lem Lem Hussein Abdu, was abandoned in the UK in 2007 by a Saudi family she had worked for as a domestic servant. The Home Office are trying to deport her to Ethiopia despite the fact that she has never been there. She was born in 1950 in Eritrea and in 1978 her village was burned down and her entire family was murdered during an attack by Ethiopian forces. Following this she fled to Sudan and from there to Saudia Arabia, where she obtained a position as a domestic worker. On 20th July 2010 there was a protest against the deportation of Lem Lem, which at the time, was threatened for 21st July, following the protest new came through that she will be released from Yarls Wood and allowed to come back to Sheffield, however, until Lem Lem is granted indefinite leave to remain in the UK, the battle will not be over. There is a Facebook page for the campaign against Lem Lem's threatened deportation, Lemlem must stay!.

BP Oil Spill

We have extracts from Democracy Now about the BP Gulf oil catastrophe, from two shows which were titled, Years of Internal BP Probes Warned that Neglect Could Lead to Accidents and Rolling Stone’s Tim Dickinson on the Inside Story of How Obama Let the World’s Most Dangerous Oil Company Get Away with Murder. The edit ends with music taken from a YouTube video, Lenny Kravitz, Mos Def and More Jam for Gulf Aid , see for more info on this campaign. For more on the spill see these Ecoshock shows, After the oil rush: BP news, Danger Deep in the Gulf and Dark Conspiracies of the Gulf.

The English Defence League (EDL)

On 13th July 2010 around a dozen supporters of the EDL invaded a Sheffield Indymedia meeting which was being held in the upstairs of The Rutland Arms, on Brown Street, in Sheffield City Centre. This is the first time the English Defence League have physically disrupted a Indymedia meeting, though it had previously been threatened in Birmingham and Bradford.

In September 2009 The Guardian reported that Alan Lake was "considering funding the EDL" and we pick out some of the lies from Alan Lake's talk in Sweden.


After crossing the invisible line with Nafeez Ahmed and Noam Chomsky we have some bollox chat about the EDL and who might be pulling their strings and the show ends with a dub mix from Old Boy.
