21-04-2008 13:29

Greenpeace folk dressed as Orang-utans have climbed all over Unilever's London HQ and Merseyside factory to tell the company to stop destroying rainforests for palm oil. Palm oil is used in products like Dove and Persil, and the companies Unilever buys from are destroying valuable rainforest and peatland areas - bad news not only for the millions of people who depend on them for their way of life and endangered species such as the orang-utan, but also for the global climate.

Most pathetic NF demo EVER.

21-04-2008 12:12

The master race gather in Eltham.
On Saturday the National Front held their annual St Georges day march in Eltham South East London. This ‘national mobilisation’ attracted a mere 22 nazis who were made to march on the pavement by the cops. The Police numbered around 100 (what a fantastic use of everyone’s taxes?) and shepherded the NF from one Eltham train station to another. The locals reacted to the spectacle with either indifference or amusement. Anyone who heckled the parade was surrounded by the bored cops who really did have nothing else to do as they outnumbered the boneheads they were babysitting by about 5-1.
