Pictures of the No Borders protest at the French Embassy

22-07-2009 00:48

the start of the demo
On Monday, 20th June, about 20 people gathered outside the French embassy in London to protest against the planned destruction of the Calais migrant camps, known as the 'jungle'. With banners, leaflets and a loud sound system, they stopped the embassy from doing business for over 1.5 hrs. Then police imposed Section 14 of the Public Order Act and tried to move protesters to a designated area (pen) across the road, which protesters refused to do and, instead, decided to end the demo. One protester, who was 'FIT-watching', was arrested for obstruction of a police officer.

Now again in 2009 the chauvinism of France’s institutional left has reared its ugly head.

This is the biggest lie being told right now

21-07-2009 10:58

The most brilliant propaganda technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly and with unflagging attention. It must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over. Here, as so often in this world, persistence is the first and most important requirement for success. - Adolf Hitler

It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends on not understanding it - Mark Twain
