UG#706 - When Are Terrorists Not Terrorists? (States assassinating by drones)

02-04-2015 16:13

We focus on drone technology, looking at the relationship between language and law. A range of speakers explain how the framing of the War On Terror has served the US military's purposes, and note that the US keeps details of its pretexts for state sponsored assassinations by drone as vague as possible. Plausible deniability is only needed if people are in a position where their actions are subject to informed questions. The core of this week's show is made up with a set of speeches from a 2015 meeting about the use of drone warfare, introduced by Bruce Gagnon and augmented by SAS whistleblower, Ben Griffin and a few classic words of Chris Hedges on how war affects its participants.

Why we boycott the Sun Newspaper. Don't buy it, don't read it!

22-03-2015 19:37

Letter from the Sun received by Liverpool Manager Kenny Daglish
As you may be aware the people of Liverpool have been involved in a long, protracted and nasty battle with the British state, and their mediums of communication. In particular the Sun newspaper, or as it's known here the Scum. We don't buy it, we don't stock it in our newsagents. If you visit Merseyside you will not find a copy of that shit in any of our railway stations, railworkers amongst many others refuse to have anything to do with it...Don't ask for it because you will be causing offence.
