We have exceeded our storage limit, and applied to Network23 for more, but to date received no reply, this means we will not be able to keep it updated. Please see our main site at Wessex Solidarity | South coast free radicals. to find out what we’re up to.

We’ll probably keep the domain going, as a backup in case the other goes down, but won’t be able to host any new media content.

After being offline for a week without explanation, the blog at is back up. For the time being we’ll keep both running and see how it goes, we can’t rely on something that can disappear for a week for no reason. We like network23, but it has limited storage space and some of these documents are too large to upload here, so we’ve left them on the wordpress one, all the links seem to work again and the menu will be kept identical. We also highly recommend Zabalaza Books, see link below. (Tip: some of theirs need an extra blank page added after the cover sheet for the pages to print in the right order, when we put them up here we do that for you.)

If you have trouble downloading any document just e mail us. and we’ll send it to you.
