On Wednesday 29th January I made a decision which has defined my short-term, if not long-term, future. It was a decision that I made after being kettled in the pouring rain by police for three hours. The decision I made was not to give the police my name. Maybe it was naive, maybe it was stupid, and it was probably mostly stubborn. But I did so for one simple reason: I felt I had been treated unjustly along with all of the other kettled protesters. I knew of my right not to give the police my name as a condition to be released from a kettle, and of my right to not be arrested for it. I knew that I had done nothing wrong. I had not committed any criminal damage or assault, and so I had nothing to fear. Having experienced similar situations in London, but in the position of the observer, I expected to be brought to the police station, to be interviewed immediately and to be released within a few hours without any charges. But that is not what happened.

After video footage emerged of a Metropolitan Police officer punching a student protestor on the 4th of Dec 2013, the "Our University Our Streets” demonstration takes place on Weds 22nd Jan 2014, at 1pm, outside the University of London Union, Malet Street, London... against the backdrop of malicious Metropolitan Police prosecutions being "blown out of the water" by photographic evidence, and of massive compensation pay-outs by the Met to victims of police violence.
If media or academia really published a balanced "opinion" over war, they would always have to include, a genuine consideration of...law.
A particularly wretched self-serving Oxford "academic" called Professor Sir Hew Strachan, has been wheeled out by the British Establishment to front the link between World War One, and current British military..."thinking", which is...propaganda.
In the year 2014, the deliberate and cynical use, by academics, of ...propaganda, that leads to murder, must be legally challenged.

Coming this fall, “9/11 in the Academic Community,” a Winner of the University of Toronto Film Festival, is a unique film that documents academia’s treatment of critical perspectives on 9/11 by exploring the taboo that shields the American government’s narrative from scholarly examination.
Through a powerful reflection on intellectual courage and the purpose of academia, the film aims at changing intellectual discourse on 9/11 and the War on Terror.

The European Parliament is Biased and Bigoted. It favours the norms and that is still right wing religious bigots and criminals and now LGBT and Feminist bigot groups. Any attempt to get justice for the people who as children and including children of to day who were used as weapons in the war for inclusion and acceptance gets you nothing but excuses and a deaf ear. Shame on you all.
