9-ll, Bali, Spain, Australia's Embassy in Jakarta, London and Egypt all have similarities and follow the same pattern, in that without them it would have been impossible to get the support from the west necessary to pre-emptively and illegally strike a sovereign nation state and whoever is behind these bombings wanted to go into an illegal and degrading war and not preach and teach peasants in Indonesia.

German police raid activists' house for using 'Yomango' on website

14-08-2005 09:50

From 5th to 13th August, over 100 activists gathered for a week of discussions, socialising and action at the Prekär Camp 2005, an action camp raising issues of precarity, and its impact on daily life and social movements, near Lüchow, north east of Hamburg, Germany.

On Wednesday 10th August, activists from the camp evicted a local social benefits office in Lüchow of its executive, who is according to activists "well known for his strict and inhuman interpretation of the new german labour and social security benefit laws". The following day, police raided and searched a house for an alledged call for criminal offences on the pracarity camp's website. It has now become clear this was in relation to the use of the word 'Yomango' on the website.

The offices of 'Anti-Atom-Aktuell', a monthly grassroots magazine on anti-nuclear issues, were also affected by the raid. They have given out a statement, explaining they are unable to work as equipment and papers have been seized. Some people say the police intentionally raided the offices of the magazine in an attempt to repress media activists. Furthermore, Anti-Atom-Aktuell being a prominant source of information within the anti-nuclear movement, the repression against the magazine, located in the region of the Castor-Protests, is considered by some as an attack on the movement in general. Early July, german police also raided the offices of LabourNet; a german website adressing issues of (un)employment and precarity.

it has been 6 years since the martyredome of anthony james dawson and the silence remains by all who thought they once meant something to activism as they lay cozy in union jobs. all the deaf, dumb and blind and coopted media run by the sycophants of can west mediocrity, be it the mainstream facist press to the sellout alternia-rags sold out to arrogant bigots with tunnel vision, no imagination and with axes to grind, still hold no sense to know the question – what time is it?

It is not often that semantics attracts our attention, but the recent media saturation with the latest word-fad has prompted this response. The latest word that is ‘sweeping’ through the vocabularies of all right-wing speech writers is (you got it) “sweeping”! Have you noticed that there’s a ‘whole lot of sweeping going on’? “Sweeping new terrorist laws; sweeping new security measures; sweeping new changes”, etc. It is a shame that Bush, Blair and Howard haven’t been swept out of office. But it’s a bigger shame that we are being swept back into a quasi-feudal world of Lords and slaves – no need to guess what your status will be, but more on that later – for now, “the Word was with God, and the Word was God”. Disregard it at your own peril!
