The David Kelly "Dead in the Woods" PSYOP

22-10-2006 22:37

The media and "establishment" are well into their plans to allow Phoney Bliar the War Criminal to step down from power gracefully, instead of being forced out in disgrace, and held to account for his actions. It's up to us to ensure that this is not allowed to happen.

Direct Action at public events. Blanketing the streets with reminders about Bliar's many crimes and deceptions. Massive rallies denouncing his reign.

These must be undertaken in earnest, so that this can never happen again, or worse, be perpetuated through his successor.

*PRESS RELEASE*:- Greek Government sentences Mt. Athos monks to 2 years in jail

22-10-2006 18:41

Dear all

5 disabled monks have already died as a result of this blockade. See

They are being sentenced for "heresy" (as a result of their beliefs). They
are not actually "heretical" in True Orthodox Christian terms. It is their
accusers, the Ecumenical Patriarchate and the Greek Government who are.

Support the monks in maintaining their peaceful existence in the face of
state sponsored violence.

Hackney rise - more stories from the John McDonnell campaign

22-10-2006 16:28

John McDonnell is just late enough for this evening's political gathering in Hackney to spark a few nervous cellphone calls from a few nervous organisers. 'He's on his way,' they report to the crowd after the first call. 'He's probably underground,' they say after several attempts at a second. 'He's at Bethnal Green tube station waiting for a taxi,' they tell us after the third.

So, thing are a bit tense at the start. McDonnell's not the only one missing. The organisers - the Hackney TUC and the Leabridge branch of the Labour party - are concerned that there aren't enough people in the audience. Then suddenly, it becomes clear that are going to be too many, and that people will have to be turned away for health and safety reasons.

Racism, another word that helps divide and silence

22-10-2006 15:33

The British people have suddenly awoken to the knowledge that their all inspiring multi-cultural system is in fact crumbling under the pressure of sectional ethnic interests that is causing greater division rather than uniting people under one flag of life. Ireland is about to experience the same problems that have being festering in England for far too long, but people in Ireland think they have a better hang on the problem and will not go down the same roads of racism silencing tones that vested groups use to keep us all from airing our concerns.The lions have awoken but have they awoken too late to solve their problems?

Death in Custody in Ireland (I) / London Protest 28.10.

22-10-2006 15:09

Just one small example of politically motivated abuse ... (Irishvidhead / indy.i
Abuse of power knows no borders. Neither do the weak excuses and clumsy cover-ups of local police forces, 'independent' complaints authorities and courts alike. Though the irish Garda Síochána is far from reaching the extraordinary death toll of their UK-collegues (in average ONE FATALITY EVERY WEEK), concerning 'delay, denial and cover-up' plus harassing persistent relatives of the victims the Gardaí are perhaps even bolder.

Confronted by more and more scandalous episodes leaking to the public and the recent rise of persistent family campaigns demanding truly independent inquiries, the latter might be just about to change. Currently an ombudsman board is being installed.

In the UK also an 'Independent' Police Complaints Commission had been installed a few years ago (only after persistent family campaigning, just in case you were harboring any doubts). But still the 'friendly unarmed bobbies' kill far more people than police forces of other european countries, while factual immunity of officers prevails.

200 More British Police in Calais

22-10-2006 13:05

There are many police officers and I know that the English police force is present at the wearing of Calais. These last times, some refugees said to me they have heard that 200 additional English police officers would have arrived in our city.

Indeed, I start to see appearing in the streets of the special vehicles, registered in the United Kingdom and which are the same of vehicles of police force.

Does anyone have any information for this special police force in Calais?
