Basic daily rights under threat for 20,000+ UK citizens!

18-12-2011 14:28

How would you feel if it was the case that you, or your loved ones, had the most fundamental aspects of your lives constrained and controlled? Do you take for granted the minutiae of freedom in your life? Over 21, 000 people are confronting the terrifying reality of losing such freedoms. Including myself. We have to call on our allies to support the campaign to make the coalition government rethink their attack on us. If this funding is stopped we risk living in worse conditions and with less freedoms than convicted criminals.

Kristallnacht in Palestine

17-12-2011 23:43

Virtually daily, Israeli security forces attack, kill, or injure Palestinian civilians with impunity. They also destroy their property by bombing, shelling, bulldozing and uprooting it. At the same time, Israeli authorities wink and nod, occasionally decry, yet do nothing to deter extremist settler crimes against Palestinian civilians. Most often, they're given license to terrorize, vandalize and commit physical violence with impunity. Rarely ever is anyone held accountable. The same holds for its own security forces, no matter how outrageous their crimes.

Police faked evidence and used dum-dum bullets to kill Mark Duggan

12-12-2011 22:39

Soon after Met Police PC Simon Harwood beat Ian Tomlinson to death at the G20 protest, the IPCC lied to the world, pretending that no CCTV cameras had overlooked the scene of Tomlinson's murder. Now the Met and IPCC are lying about the murder of Mark Duggan. A particularly grotesque aspect of Mark Duggan's murder is that police shot Duggan with dum-dum bullets, as used by far-right serial killer Anders Breivik. Dum-dum bullets are banned by The Hague Convention, with soldiers who use dum-dum bullets being tried as WAR CRIMINALS...

The US Air Force’s New Mind Control Wing

10-12-2011 23:47

USAF "Human Effectiveness Directorate" logo
The use of RF Directed Energy Weapons is roughly similar to other ‘electroshock’ weapons. Just as the cattle prod-like ‘taser’ has been widely adopted in American law enforcement to temporarily disable (or permanently kill) those targeted, pulsed microwave directed energy weapons have been covertly adopted by the US military for remote incapacitation of human targets, such as political dissidents. More properly classified as weapons of electronic warfare--a type of information war--RFDEW are used for the “jamming” of “enemy information systems,” which also happen to be human brains.

Occupy SF Bradley Manning Plaza camp attacked by cops

09-12-2011 07:15

The SFPD is concerned about public health and safety. That’s why they have to hit the public with clubs. The OccupySF encampment was raided and completely destroyed by SFPD late last night and Justin Herman Plaza, now being called Bradley Manning Plaza was left empty except for a city sign which read “park closed for renovations” and the occasional pile of horse crap left by one of our proud mounted public servants. 85 arrests were made and all the tents and equipment were confiscated. They were cited with “illegal camping.”
