Public meeting: Stand up for your freedom to protest! LSE, 2nd December

16-11-2007 11:43

Gordon Brown plans to extend the restrictions on demonstrations near parliament to cover the whole country, claiming that this will simplify the work of the police. The current law totally bans spontaneous protests, requiring advance police permission, which allows the police to impose arbitrary limits on numbers and effectively act as political censors. The consultation proposes extending these rules to any protest anywhere, in the name of 'harmonisation'. The freedom to protest was won through hard struggle and if we want to keep it we must take a stand to say enough is enough. Come to a public meeting to plan a public response: we propose early January.

Public meeting

Pakistan, Somalia and the media. Two protests in London on Saturday.

12-11-2007 20:32

A noisy demo outside downing street...
Arriving at Downing St, I am surprised by the number of media present to cover the demo. There must be at least 30 photographers and camera people for the protest against the imposition of martial law in Pakistan. They all seem to be huddled around one corner of the demonstration which numbers about 500. Have our tabloid editors suddenly experienced a huge change of heart in what they consider to be news? Are the concerns of the British Pakistani community now worth investigation for the first time ever? Are human rights and the behavior of our terror-war allies now a priority for our media?

If only….

Edinburgh: Contempt of Court charges against lefty lawyer in Terrorism case

08-11-2007 14:11

As informed by grassroot group Scotland Against Criminalising Communities, our lefty lawyer Aamer Anwar is likely to face contempt of court charges for disagreeing with the judge in the Siddique "terrorism" case.

At Edinburgh High Court - 23rd of October, Lord Carloway sentenced Mohammed Atif Siddique - convicted last month of "terrorism" offences - to a total of 8 years in jail.

The main point of controversy seem to be the different opinions in if the defendant actually did anything illegal.

Thought-crime conviction

08-11-2007 13:16

Samina Malik has been convicted of thinking or writing unacceptable things under the Terrorism Act 2000. This invasion of the mind by the authorities and the courts is yet another example of the annihilation of civil liberties. Whilst Georgians and lawyers in Pakistan rise up to challenge their governments why is it that we are so accepting of the assault on our freedoms.
