Pink, Black, Pirate: Taking Stock of Rostock

08-07-2007 15:04

"Black resistance and pink blockades go hand in hand, and pink clowns were defended by black anarchists when the police roughed them up during the actions and demonstrations: pink and black are complementary and not substitutes, like many, including myself, were led to believe in the past few years."

The Corporate Media's Abuse of a Term

08-07-2007 14:15

Many news corporations and British newspapers use the term "paedophilia" to refer to the sexual abuse of children. This is incorrect and is deeply offensive to non-offending paedophiles. I have taken the time to explain the correct interpretion of the DSM-IV definition of paedophilia - considered to be the official definition - and commented on what the criteria mean.

Talking Walls

08-07-2007 08:28

The mainstream press is full of stories but for ONE BIG exception; a FAILURE the proportions of which promise to sear the pages of history. The criminal intervention and the consequent holocaust and humanitarian disaster that is Western Interventionist Iraq! The media is at pains to avoid this story for obvious reasons -- it participated in the original ruse and deception upon which a full-scale military invasion was launched. The list of war criminals includes the name of Rupert Murdoch as he clearly carries equal responsibility with Bush, Cheney, Blair, Howard and the conservative forces that support them. War crimes arrests must therefore extend to Murdoch and other responsible parties – Murdoch is damned by his own words, delivered in numerous speeches and addresses to fellow conservative criminals.

Mikey Powell Campaign screening of Injustice: Tues 10th July

07-07-2007 18:30

The Mikey Powell Campaign in association with Birmingham Indymedia will be screening 'Injustice' on Tuesday 10th July at 7:30 pm at the Custard Factory's Theatre in Digbeth Birmingham. The screening will be preceded by a talk by a member of the Mikey Powell Campaign.

On extremely rare occasions Mikey was prone to bouts of depression, and during an episode the Police were called. Mikey was arrested outside his mother's house in Lozells Birmingham. Whilst in Police Custody in Handsworth, Birmingham on September 7th 2003, Mikey died at the hands of West Midlands Police.

'This is what happened. Officers drove a police car at Mikey, hitting him, beat him with batons, CS gassed him, restrained him and, knowing he was injured, and drove him to a police station not a hospital. At the police station the officers simply did not call for an
ambulance for over 4 minutes. Mikey was dead by the time it arrived.'

His family and friends continue the campaign for justice.
