Five minors face long years for a crime that unlikely ever happened

10-03-2014 10:42

Friday 14 March 2014 marks the one year anniversary of the kidnapping and imprisonment of five Palestinian teenagers (at the time aged 15-17) for alleged stone-throwing, following a settler car accident that took place close to their village of Hares in Salfit district (West Bank), Palestine. In what clearly appears to be a trumped-up case with no hard evidence of a crime or eyewitness accounts that would link these particular boys to the accident, they are being charged with 20 counts of attempted murder each and are facing long years in prison.

YOU CANNOT DIE IN HELL: Using Indefinite Detention for Political and Religious P

09-03-2014 22:57

This is as extreme of cruelty and barbarity as one could espouse. Such cosmic outcome, supposedly as Divine Justice, doesn’t even reach the categories of mere human ideas to justice.

City Hall Sleep Over
I was at city hall at 09.30 and met with some of the overnight sleepers from a group from Beat On the Streets. They are concerned that homeless people are in danger of being criminalised.
They had camped on the grass area outside the City Hall, home of the London Assembly and London Mayor Boris Johnson. They were removed early this morning. There was one tent on the pavement when I arrived. Some of the group had left but those that remained were in good spirits.

David Satter - an NSA shill among the Caucasian insurgents exposed

14-02-2014 15:59

The Double Borderline Attack
It´s 1984 again in Sochi. Here´s the story of an American agent positioned among people in a conflict with Russia. The insurgents have given the enemy of the enemy a benefit of the doubt, and before finally using it against them it uses it against others. The Russians have not been fooled by the Americans and expelled the agent, but accepted the farce for a while presumably in order to humiliate their opponents and train their own spies. The Double Borderline Attack was spotted in its latest statement.
