Waterside Anti-Arms Fair Protests - Opposite DSEi (pics)

14-09-2005 20:25

Says it all really
This afternoon the last large group of protestors (approx one hundred) moved into position opposite the Excel centre - facing the warships across the basin. As the sounds of the PA sound system echoed across the water - a mix of music, slogans and speeches - defence police and army personnel zipped across the waves in zodiac style speedboats (complete with waterborne FIT). This was about the best place campaigners could get to in order to maker themselves heard by the arms dealers. Demonstrations of military speedboats and landing craft were greeted with jeers and slogans shouted out over the water, meanwhile one person jumped off the quay and made a swim for the warships. (14/09/05)

Blockade Pics from DSEi - Tidal Basin West Entrance

14-09-2005 19:45

Cyclists take the roundabout by Tidal Basin
This afternoon a crowd of people blockaded the western entrance to the Excel Centre, host to the DSEi arms fair. The gate was shut to traffic in both directions and arms fair attendees re-routed to the other side of the Excel complex. After some time the police looked like they were preparing to surround people and push them into the 'designated protest zone', so the protestors once again took to the flyover road before moving off to make there presence felt elsewhere.

"Blackwater Mercenaries Deploy in New Orleans" Govt Censored in US Media

14-09-2005 19:20

Blackwater Logo
New Orleans - Heavily armed paramilitary mercenaries from the Blackwater private security firm, infamous for their work in Iraq, are openly patrolling the streets of New Orleans. Some of the mercenaries say they have been "deputized" by the Louisiana governor; indeed some are wearing gold Louisiana state law enforcement badges on their chests and Blackwater photo identification cards on their arms. They say they are on contract with the Department of Homeland Security and have been given the authority to use lethal force.

Blackwater Mercenaries: Coming Soon to Your Town

14-09-2005 19:09

It is now obvious how martial law (not officially declared as such) will work in America in the wake of the devastation of New Orleans. Instead of federal troops or an influx of National Guard troops sent to “restore order” (the latter mandated in our now anachronistic Constitution; see Article 1, Section 8) and empowered to “suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions,” in Louisiana the state and federal governments have brazenly violated the Constitution by sending in Blackwater Security and other private goon squads. It’s like a scene out of Sinclair Lewis’ dystopic novel, It Can’t Happen Here. “Gun toting militias terrorize the nation at a local level, with the redneck morons handed leadership roles in every community, with the right to summarily execute people who say the wrong thing. Resistors are threatened with imprisonment or death if they don’t go public supporting the party line,” opines Rob Kall for Op-Ed News. “Lewis wrote his book in 1937, having see Hitler’s rise to Power.

Witnessing arrests outside the DSEI

14-09-2005 19:03

The Metropolitan police have 15 boats. This afternoon 7 of them, all full, faced around a 100 of us on the dock side. At 4.00pm, one man put his hand in front, perhaps on, a police camera-mans lens. Immediately the cameraman grabbed him, pulling him down. He was led away to one of the many waiting vans.

At 4.10pm, a thirty year old women was arrested, taken to another van. She was just in front of me when the police took her, for no reason that I could see. Afterwards somebody said it was because she had chalked a message on the ground. The police at the scene did not tell me why.

Silvertown Way Flyover - DSEi Lock-on Road Blockade Pics

14-09-2005 17:03

barriers around them and lots of police
Around six people blockaded one half of the silvertown way flyover heading towards the Excel Centre near Canning Town station this morning, the blockade lasting until late afternoon. They used what looked like two metal containers (sort of small metal barrels) filled with concrete, with their arms locked on inside. They recieved lots of support from other campaigners as police took their pictures and the cutting crews slowly cut them out of the lockons. At some point a car was used to block the other side of the road, being abandoned with the tyres let down. Later Critical Mass cyclists and others on foot blocked the rest of the flyover.
