The Israeli bombardment of Gaza of 27th December to 18th January, provoked passionate protests across the UK.

The police used indiscriminate baton charges, kettles and heavy surveillance, in an effort to impose their control on the movement.

State of Emergency Declared in Italian Prison System

14-02-2010 11:44

2009 was a particularly bad year for the Italian prison system, especially if you happened to be one of its ‘guests’ having to suffer the severe overcrowding that was exacerbated by an overall lack of funding in the system. As a result, the summer saw a series of prison protests, including mass hunger strikes and riots, as well an explosion in a historically already high rate of suicide, self-harm and other ‘suspicious’ deaths.

EU - Internal Security Strategy & Commitee On Internal Security

14-02-2010 02:58

The EU has been waiting for years to launch its Internal Security Strategy (ISS) and the Standing Committee on Internal Security (COSI) which will be responsible for developing it. Back in 2003 It was thought that the Lisbon Treaty would be well in place by now, instead the Lisbon Treaty and the Stockholm Programme have come into effect at the same time. What the ISS and COSI have in common is that they both form part of the matrix of the next stage of the growing European state.

14-02-2010 00:21

Residents from Camden and Kings Cross have had letters & emails utterly ignored by the UKCMRI.

Why the media silence on the Flight 253 bombing hearings?

13-02-2010 14:06

Hearing before the US House Committee on Homeland Security, 27 January 2010
The media’s failure to report the January 27 Congressional hearings on last Christmas’s Flight 253 bomb plot is both extraordinary and ominous.

The blackout is a devastating exposure of the state of US politics. If events do not fit the concocted “connect-the-dots” script, the political establishment treats them, in Orwellian style, as if they had never happened. This, in turn, further strengthens the power of the national-security apparatus inside the state, as it learns that it can plan operations risking mass deaths with impunity.

Europe's five "undeclared nuclear weapons states"

12-02-2010 18:20

US nuclear weapons in Europe 2008
There has been much hype, supported by scanty evidence, that Iran might at some future date become a nuclear weapons state. And, therefore, a pre-emptive defensive nuclear attack on Iran to annihilate its non-existent nuclear weapons program should be seriously contemplated "to make the World a safer place". The mainstream media abounds with makeshift opinion on the Iran nuclear threat.

But what about the five European "undeclared nuclear states" including Belgium, Germany, Turkey, the Netherlands and Italy.

One cannot rule the World without keeping one's own nation under control

12-02-2010 17:40

One can't rule the world without keeping one's own nation under control, and this is an essential prerequisite for empire maintenance abroad.

Obama and Sarah Palin BOTH exalt the same military leadership that gives them both the OKay. They are two loyal representatives of wealthy and influential investors in war industry and the industry's laterally connected high military officials. Yet media conglomerates intend for the public to see them as two political stars in confrontation. They both go along with and play out this hoax, which cleaves the national constituency conveniently in two making it easier to manage.

UKCMRI lie to Camden residents over letters at public forum Peter Pan debacle

11-02-2010 23:54

The UKCMRI have been dubbed by the mainstream media as building a "28 Days Later Lab" after amjor safety alert was issued from Camden.
