Subject:  The LABOCA/ACT survey at all redshifts

I will discuss a recent paper describing a Sunyaez Zel'dovich (SZ) effect survey on 11 galaxy clusters based on ACT, LABOCA, ACTA and CABB data. The contamination of radio sources and sub-millimetre galaxies is studied. Peculiar velocities of the galaxy clusters are extracted to constrain the kinetic SZ effect.
