190 years ago protesters were massacred at Peterloo, the government response was more police powers. Southall, Toxteth, Brixton, Orgreave, Tottenham, Wapping, Bradford, Fairford, more police powers. The government talks as if the freedom to protest is the product of liberal philosophers, in reality it is the product of working people fighting every inch of the way to extract concessions from those who only want obedience. The "war on terror" has just given them another excuse, the war on our liberties never went away.
We have a choice: do we let generations of struggles disappear into the history books or do we say-
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
State of Emergency seeks to highlight and take direct action against the causes and effects of the War on Terror. We stand in solidarity against military and economic oppression by defending ourselves against the ever increasing domination of the state. We recognise that the state of emergency in which we live will continue for as long as our obedience enables them to control us.
