Prisoner Solidarity Demonstration, Edinburgh

08-07-2005 23:00

From 3.30 pm till 5pm a prisoner solidarity demonstration took place at Saughton Prison near Stenford Road in Edinburgh.

Only few people seemed to know about the "noise" demonstration, as it startet off with about 20 protesters, swelling the numbrs to about a hundred people and one dog in the end.

The whole atmosphere was very non-confrontational and the access road was kept open all th times so visitors could still proceed to see inmates (?) during the assembly.

If the brit government really took the terrorists threats seriously..

08-07-2005 22:44

If the brit government really believed and took al-ciaeda threats seriously.

Knowing the fact that they were dealing with rich ruthless disassociated cold blooded killers (trained by our own ruthless dissociated psychopaths at CIA black ops in Afghanistan in the 1980's, programmed and trained to kill and maim Russian soldiers mercilessly).

The security services should have put in place, body frisking and bag searching check points at the entrance of London tubes and on entering buses a long time ago.

Unprecedented police harrassment operation against Wombles

08-07-2005 21:16

Since Friday 1 July, some 12,000 police officers from across the UK have been carrying out one of the largest and most successful operations against summit protesters ever experienced. After Saturday's Make Poverty History march, this small army has used new powers to clamp down on almost every protest - of whatever kind. One activist group in particular has been targeted in an extreme way - the Wombles. This is the story of 'Operation Get Wombles', and incorporates yesterday's newswire post. It may contain some innaccuracies on numbers and times but the general thrust is correct.
