02-05-2007 12:42

Many Indymedia regulars will know that I have been a long term critic of Peter Tatchell, some have accused me of being a homophobe because I critises the beloved leader's claims that are not true, Peter has claimed I am Gay and my criticism is just a jealous hissy fit.

May Day Party Arrests Total Lack Of Solidarity

02-05-2007 10:42

Those who act with the police, are the police!

Recent police raids in Sydney and Melbourne have resulted in the arrests of two Sri Lankan Tamils; “two men have appeared in the Melbourne Magistrates Court on terrorism related charges,” ran the intro from one media outlet while another ran with, “men face terrorism charges after raids.” I’m sure we all get the drift but it should be noted that assistant commissioner to the Federal Police, Frank Prendergast, went to lengths "to make it clear that these men weren't involved in any possible attacks on Australian soil.” Well then, what?

02-05-2007 01:16

Never has a "liberation" managed to generate so many death mercenaries and contractors being paid up to 5'000 dollars a day with the sole aim of exterminating...and "pacifying".
Never has a country been so openly plundered and pillaged right in front of everyone's eyes and to the utter silence of its spectators...
