Anti-Protestor Propaganda In Newspapers

25-06-2005 08:38

After a long period with fairly starightforward newspaper reporting about protest worries and news of different demonstrations - the last few days has seen a resurgence in anti-protestor propaganda.

Most laughable, and indeed most malicious, is an article by The Scotsman claiming that "splinter groups" (implying exteme groups as opposed to just groups) are planning "disruption" of the Make Poverty History march on 2nd June. But who are these groups that plan to "infiltrate" (er attend i think is the right word) the MPH march? Well the terrifying list of groups is the rebel Clown army, the Disco dancing bloc, and the Fairy Army! All groups who like to dress up in colourful costumes, do street theatre, dance and prance about... Many groups who are part of the Dissent network have always said they will attend the MPH march, mostly to hand out leaflets about the protests in the following week (hence "radicalising")...

Other articles have focused on Glasgow with two examples of gutter journalism. An empty warehouse that is on the route of a planned road and which will be demolished has been used as an accomodation centre - but in the words of the press it becomes "condemnded". Then as press photographers chase people down to road or call at their houses to take pictures of people on their doorsteps, the newspapers revel in the fact that people do not like being photographed - especially when they know the photos are due to end up in an article branding them as extremists. This is becoming a growing trend with newspapers publishing names and photos of individuals.

Sadly this is part of the landscape in the run up to any large protest - demonise the protestors, spread alarm and fear, justify a clampdown by police. Selling newspaperrs is one thing, spreading lies and fear another.

Should the community now feel less safe?
Now they go on in the article to describe themselves as intelligence officials? But I'm sorry to say that any group of people who ask another group of people to believe what they believe based on no evidence is amongst the most unintelligent and lost group of people the world has ever known.
