The Insane Brutality, Moral Decay Of Israel

It's becoming very clear that this military operation was designed for the wider purpose of inciting a war with Iran and Syria, which the Extremists responsible failed to dupe the international community into supporting, what with the whole "Iraq WMD" thing they perpetrated.

Londonwide Group backs Khoodeelaar! No to Crossrail Bill

19-07-2006 19:17

As the Westminster House of Commons Crossrail Select Committee practically winds down the main business of going through the motions of hearing objections to the Bill, concern is rising about the very shabby way that the Committee has treated the main opponents.
It is expected that the Select Committee will back the Government Crossrail Bill. Thousands of families will suffer across the East End as a result.
To prevent this becoming inevitable, a London wide democracy pressure group has today extended its support to the Khoodeelaar! Campaign against Crossrail attacks on the Brick Lane and Whitechapel Area in East London
This announcement follows a day long campaign against Crossrail hole attacks programme conference held in the Brick Lane and Whitechapel London E1 area today.

Lebonese demo Tuesday night. The blockading of Parliament.

19-07-2006 16:37

The volume increases.
The road outside Parliament was blocked for around 20 minutes by around 500 mostly Lebanese demonstrators. The action forced the main gates to be locked by Police so MPs wishing to drive home at the end of the session found themselves locked in.

The Police were hopelessly outnumbered so could do little except stand and watch. They called in reinforcements from just about everywhere including City of London, British Transport Police and local Westminster duty plods. Having no option but to adopt a softly, softly approach they kept well back letting the stewards gently move the protesters back into the square. They then formed a line of vans and officers across the front of the demo and remained until the protest finished. There was no violence, the protest remained loud and angry until the end.

Expect greater numbers on Saturday.

Tuesday Night Lebonese Protest. Vigil for Peace in Parliament Square.

19-07-2006 16:25

Lebonese refugees....
The candlelit vigil called by the Palistinian Solidarity Campaign in Parliament Square was a lot bigger than expected. Since the demo was booked events in Lebanon have spiraled with hundreds of civilians killed in airstrikes and Israel increasing its military operation with every passing day. So the half a dozen or so cops deployed found themselves policing a protest of around 2000 angry people. Direct action was inevitable....

Belgrade remembers Srebrenica - 11 years on...

19-07-2006 15:20

The Srebrenica massacre was the July 1995 killing of up to an estimated 8,106 Bosniak males, ranging in age from teenagers to the elderly, in the region of Srebrenica in Bosnia and Herzegovina by a Serb Army of Republika Srpska under general Ratko Mladić including Serbian state special forces "Scorpions". The Srebrenica massacre is the largest mass murder in Europe since World War II and considered by many as one of the most horrific events in recent European history. It is also the first legally established case of genocide in Europe after the Holocaust. (source: Wikipedia).

11 years on, a large crowd gathered in the city centre of Belgrade to remember the victims killed in the Srebrenica massacre. Last year the same vigil was attacked by nationalist groups, some of who trew teargas in the crowd. The police guarded the protest heavily this time. We took some photos...
