Mainshill Update - increase in police surveillance

21-08-2009 18:09

The Mainshill Solidarity Camp was set up in June to stop an open cast coal mine from being built next to the village of Douglass in South Lanarkshire. Two weeks ago it hosted the Camp for Climate Action Scotland. The camp has treehouses, towers and tunnels all built to resist eviction.

Since the end of Climate Camp Scotland we've been sorting out left over tat and continuing building defences. This week we have had an increase in Police surveillance with early morning visits on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Both times two police officers walked around the site taking video footage of defences.

Media Disinformation: UK Government is Planning Mass Graves in Case of Swine Flu

20-08-2009 23:20

An official UK government report --quoted extensively in Britain's tabloid media-- is warning the British public that there will be countless deaths in the case of a swine flu pandemic. According to the WHO, a Worlwide public health emergency situation will take place in the Fall.

The World's Largest Parasites

09-08-2009 00:24

Although you people in Europe are sensible and have government insurance, never trust the United States. They will be trying to privatize every part of your economy they can. They are privatizing everything over here including Social Security. Not even Medicare is free anymore. Don't trust these bastards. The health insurance companies are the largest parasites in the world. I myself am about to move to New Zealand or some other rational, non warlike country.

False opposition to animal liberation

08-08-2009 13:29

As much as radically critical political theory - or should I say anti-political - is seen as thoughtcrime by the state, I am increasingly notice this to be true of the radical political/anarchist scenes.
