The East Devon – West Dorset coastline has a history of producing and harbouring various trouble makers, be it the pirates and wreckers that inhabited these shores, attacking and sinking trading vessels in the 18th Century, or those who supported disputed heirs to the British crown, such as the Duke of Monmouth, landing his ill-fated cause against James I in 1685

Heavy handed policing at Bush protests

23-11-2003 21:15

During the week of Bush protests, I witnessed police arrests where people were treated pretty roughly, but I also saw police being pretty restrained. There were an unprecedented number of police monitoring the anti-Bush protests, and consequently Bush was able to travel without ever really encountering the protesters (occasionally this involved Bush slightly rearranging his schedule, so he certainly felt our presence).

An American Protester in London

23-11-2003 01:37

George Bush made me do it.

Politically apathetic all my life, I barely followed the issues, never voted, and never much cared to.

After September 11th, the United States had the sympathy of the world. There was so much potential. But, in a few short years, Bush and his foreign policy turned that sympathy into hatred.

Bush forced me to get up, get out, and take to the streets.

Colin Powell is coming to Maastricht

23-11-2003 00:06

No More Lies
The Enmasse platform organises a demo at the eve of the OSCe summit held in Maastricht. Collin Powell will briefly visit this summit to promote his war on terrorism. We don't like that. Probably also a speaker from the stop war coalition will make te stage.

More Vietnam Atrocities

22-11-2003 18:07

Nick Turse has done an excellent job in documenting that My Lai and the Tiger Force atrocities were not isolated incidents, but he misses an important point. Disappearances, hideous torture techniques, mutilations, rapes, etc. serve a very logical purpose in US counterinsurgency strategy. In Vietnam it was called the Phoenix Program. It is savage intimidation designed to reduce popular support for guerrilla fighters. In recent terminology, it is shock and awe.
