Iran at the crossroads: Revolution or Bargaining?

10-08-2009 19:41

Street Protests in the 8 Weeks
By calling the situation a “family fight” Mousavi who is the loser in the Khamenei-Ahmadinrjad game, is trying to at least bring it back to its pre elections status. What he doesn’t understand is that especially after June 20th Khamenei himself has become people’s main target and hence there is no turn back.

Closed doors at the Council

06-08-2009 09:06

Parliament has been under attack lately (not literally, unfortunately) for its lack of ‘transparency’. It took a plucky mole to steal the documents, and public spiritedly flog them for £300,000 to the Telegraph to find out how much of our money was being spent on crystal grapefruit bowls and £200 pens (stand up Gorton MP Gerald Kaufman).

How Independent is the Independent Police Complaints Commission?

05-08-2009 22:51

Public confidence in the police took a knock after the death of Ian Tomlinson at the G20 protests in April. As videos of police violence spread like wildfire on YouTube, their actions were roundly condemned by politicians and the media. Things have died down for the moment. With the MPs’ expenses scandal and Westminster going into meltdown police chiefs must have been quietly relieved when the public’s attention shifted elsewhere. Investigations into police misconduct continue at the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC). But what exactly does the IPCC do? Is it effective? And who does it serve?

Should we be worried about the BNP?

05-08-2009 22:02

In years gone by, there’s been more interest amongst the British public in the Eurovision Song Contest than the European Parliamentary Elections. The election of Nick Griffin and Andrew Brons, leaders of the British National Party (BNP), has changed all that. How are these racist loons representing us? And how worried should we be?

Iran at the crossroads: Revolution or Bargaining?

Street Protests in 7th weeks in Iran
The “family fight” between the so called reformists and hardliners is not our fight. People’s demands go beyond what the reformists who believe in the system can possibly deliver. The masses have shown that “the game of powerful” is not their game. If the middle classes succeed in bringing the working classes to it side and turn on the engine of the revolution and only then all these political flirting will go to its rightful place; the trash can of history. This is what happened during the 1979 revolution and will inevitably happen again in a “revolutionary situation”.

Coup General: "We're Going After the Protest Leaders"

04-08-2009 17:03

The clock is ticking on this coup regime. And on television this morning, one could see the fear in the eyes of the macho generals that try so hard to show a fearless face. Their days are numbered, not because the other countries of the hemisphere and the world reject the coup, but so much more importantly, because the Honduran people are organizing to put a stop to it all by themselves.
The coup generals don't have an end game.
The civil resistance does, and is unanimous in it: The toppling of the coup regime, the reinstatement of the elected government, and a Constitutional Convention to remake their nation in a more authentically democratic form."

AFP in Honduras Hung By Its Own Photograph

04-08-2009 09:27

"It turns out that AFP’s make-believe “journalist,” Francisco Jara knew full well that his statements about military-style “training exercises” by what he called “Zelaya’s ‘popular army’” were false and he chose to lie about it anyway. The proof of his deceit comes from AFP’s own photographs, like the one above. The exercises – see for yourself – were more akin to a Sunday Easter egg hunt or picnic than the conspiratorial scenario conjured by Jara in his felony against journalism."

Protest Mediators: A Plan To Make Protest Even More Benign

03-08-2009 07:49

What is the point of protest?

To create change. I would have thought that was obvious; it is the only rational response to the question. So why has so little change happened as a result of protest in the Western world in the last 30 years?
