The 9/11 Key to Political Transformation

31-07-2005 06:09

"Looking at the onslaughts we face, it's obvious that this administration's primary source of war-making, rights-taking, vote-raking power is still and always has been the "official 9/11 story." The exquisitely timed "surprise attack" it portrays instantly justified what we now know was a long planned agenda to take us into endless war, crippling debt and constitutional twilight."

Don't Give Me No Lip, "What's wrong with Mimicking Corporate Media"

30-07-2005 18:55

-- A response to Jennifer Whitney's article on indymedia, which can be found here

The spirit of critique and wanting to help move indymedia forward is something I really appreciate. However, Jennifer Whitney's article, "The Good, The Bad, & (sic) The Ugly: "What's the Matter with Indymedia?" is one part critique, and two parts personal axe grinding, three parts "Ra! Ra! UC, NYC, 501-c(3) IMC" . Beyond the fact that the article is so deliberately misleading in many ways, it should be critiqued on the facts and arguments that it proposes about editorial policy and the mission of indymedia. To its credit, this article raises some of the right types of questions about indymedia's effectiveness and methods, but to its detriment, gives all the wrong answers. Rather, it gives short sighted answers or all the same 'ol answers.

Shoot First

30-07-2005 03:48

The UK has recently undergone a social regression to a period in its history (many centuries past) when summary executions by the King’s representatives were common fair. Performing summary executions in the street is not new in England; this practice, however, was determined by the ancient powers to be counter productive – more revolts resulted from this practice than subjection/subjugation. But today, Blair’s England panders more to the racist sentiments of its people than good political sense. So be it, history has already dictated the inevitable outcomes.

Insensitive policing in the aftermath of the Tornado

30-07-2005 00:55

PC N. Lighton
Local residents this afternoon at the police cordon of Birchwood Crescent, Balsall heath (by what remains of the monkey steps), were asking the Chief Structural engineer questions, when suddenly out of the blue PC N. Lighton proceeded to photograph residents who were intent on finding out any information about their homes and their possessions. Senior officer M. Shaw, present at the time, wouldn't comment on his actions, but the photographing did eventually cease because of interventions by concerned residents.
