28-01-2011 13:32Overnight dissidents have been arrested. The state has forcibly downed the mobile phone and internet networks. Info on today's events is therefore reliant on corporate media reporters present at the scene.

Israël and the FBI were folowing HLF from 1993 onwards and harrassing the members of HLF.
