Troops Out Demo Presages Hot Summer of Dissent

20-03-2005 15:41

The July 2205 G8 should make this a hot summer of dissent, and inspire Britain's biggest ever festival of dissent. The London anti-war demo saw a very large turn out, despite demands from other political activities: elections, G8, pension cuts, etc... yet this has been a powerful warm up for what’s ahead. More pertinently, it has reminded Tony B Liar that he will never be able to draw a line under his illegal destruction of Iraq, and the brutal cold-blooded murdering of 100,000 innocent Iraqi people. The march 19 demonstration has ensured that his despotic decision should haunt him for a long time to come.

"Visibility Policing" on March 19th Anti-War Demo in London

20-03-2005 15:08

Line at Piccadilly Circus 1 (police, barriers, vans)
Quite a few people I spoke to on the large anti-war protest on Saturday March 19th 05, remarked on the style of policing deployed for the march.

50,000 - 80,000 march to bring troops home

19-03-2005 23:22

It was the usual numbers game, organisers hyping the figure to 200,000 while the police play the figure down to 20,000. The media then talk about the different claims instead of the issues... just like me!

America's Preventive War as Ultimate Risk

19-03-2005 16:48

Never before has a demcoratic state threatened so openly to repudiate the basic norm of all law, the prohibition of violence.. Apart from self-defense, no war is legal if the Security Council has not approved.. The American government does not feel bound to the norms of law and political ethics
