Protesters assemble, mask up...
Sorry for the late posting but this was a story that had to go up!

On Wednesday a group of masked-up white-overalled political agitators assembled by Parliament. It is unclear as to whether or not this gathering arranged with the Police as none were present to clarify the situation. After various banner waving antics (that were possibly illegal) the participants (who may have been gathered illegally) marched (definitely illegal!!!) down towards Victoria Street before occupying Methodist Central Hall for some kind of rally. Both the gathering, march and rally were organised under the noses of the Police without any intervention! Yet again the SOCPA legislation lies in tatters! Another blatant violation by political hooligans, which should have every reader of the Daily Mail Shaking with fear!

And this is not the first time!

London bombings: the unasked and unanswered questions

28-10-2006 10:44

Muslim resistance to US-UK imperialism gains nothing from the truly terrorist acts, like those of the London bombings. US imperialism is the main beneficiary of such acts. It is highly improbable that the leaders of Muslim resistance do not understand this or that they would carry out such actions for the benefit of their mortal enemy. Who actually carried out the London bombings?

Indymedia: Brad Will, Bravery, Our Common Struggle

28-10-2006 10:41

I think we should all take a look at what is so important about indymedia work and why it is so important and what it means to each one of us. I hope that we draw courage of conviction from Brad's example and that we stand together throughout the indymedia network and as individuals to redouble our efforts. I think you all know that it could have been any one of us. But, it is so much easier for them to take us one at a time. We stand much more strongly together in what we can all be proud of. Our brave common struggle. Indymedia.

The Veil Issue Revisited

28-10-2006 04:33

The statements by Blair and Straw against the wearing of veils have been received positively in the pampered and sheltered filter of contemporary western sensibilities. In the Arab world, after five years of images of dead women in blood-splattered veils during two wars of conquest by these same sensitive liberators, such tasteless declarations will be taken as an extreme insult on top of grievous injury.
