A Missionary of Ignorance

07-06-2007 10:11

The king of arrogance and the missionary of ignorance are part of a frozen elite consciusness of fear and indifferent reason where there are no alternatives and bankruptcies are just normal business practice. Another world is possible of open arms, not clenched fists, a world where everyone has a place and where many worlds fit!

G8 Blockade On Main Road To Heiligendamm

06-06-2007 16:33

View of protestors advancing towards the fence through the fields ...
Thousands of people left Reddelich camp early this morning to take part in the first day of blockades against the G8 summit. The main group which consisted of well over 5000 people moved towards the fence through fields and country roads. Other smaller affinity groups also left towards the fence 'protecting' Heiligendamm. Here there are a few photos of the main blockade which managed to break well inside the designated 'no-protest' zone, and successfully occupied the main road leading to Heiligendamm from the town of Bad Doberan, and just a few hundred meters away from the fence that protects the so-called 'red zone'.

At the time of publishing this report the blockade is still on, and growing in numbers as protesters from an earlier blockade of a military airport nearby are joining in. Police are bringing in water cannons and small tanks, but the protestors are staying put and resisting the blockade, some of which planning to stay overnight.

Here there are a few pics of the blockade so far ....

Rostock demonstration for global freedom of movement and equal rights for all.

05-06-2007 22:12

Police hold up the begining of the demo...
Arriving at the rally point the Police presence is unreal. Literally thousands of the fuckers. A group of communists are being kettled outside the entrance and the atmosphere is tense to say the least. The speeches are delayed because many of the speakers are held up outside while people are being searched. Then when the demo forms up hundreds of cops surround the start and block its passage. Behind them are water cannons. The crowd refused to provoked. Its the same deal as before. There are refugees present and noone is going to allow the Police to add deportations to their arrest quota.

After hours of negotiation the demo finally leaves with over 10,000 people on it. Outside the town centre it is stopped again because the streets are too narrow or something. Despite these pathetic excuses the crowd still refuse to react in a violent or confrontational manner.

10,000 is over ten times bigger than anything that Germany's Nazis have ever manged. They think that borders are a good idea...whose winning?
