Britain's Own Guantanamo

22-08-2007 22:44

Politicians across the world are more open in their condemnation of Guantanamo Bay these days and a old friends of America have even said it should be closed down.

Criticism and calls for closure are being made quite openly by British government ministers now that Tony Blair's influence has gone.

But they are more reluctant to acknowledge the existence of another Guantanamo - one in their own backyard ... it is called HMP Long Lartin in England's leafy county of Wiltshire.

British Ambassador promises: "We will not deport Pegah Emambakhsh"

22-08-2007 16:21

Unfortunately the case records would leave us to doubt it. The
impression we get is that it is an attempt to demonstrate the absurdity
of the situation, that is, that Pegah will not endure any form of persecution
in Ahmadinejad’s Iran and the ruthless Islamic courts!

Political Policing outside Harmondsworth Detention Centre.

22-08-2007 14:17

Police blocking the protest
A group of around 30 from the Climate Camp, including many from No Borders, made their way (with an un-necessary police escort) to Harmondsworth Immigration Detention Centre at midday on Tuesday, only to be forcibly penned by police into a car park invisible to the road. The action was to highlight the link between detention centres and climate change, and to show solidarity to those inside, detained for committing no crime.

Who wants Pegah’s Blood?

21-08-2007 23:50

The case of Pegah Emambakhsh is the umpteenth case of violation of human rights by our governments.
The EveryOne Group, the activists and the politicians who have joined the appeal for her life have obtained a postponement until 28th August. But we must not be deceived, the government is just waiting for public opinion to be distracted by other events in order to force Pegah up the plane steps and send her to her death.. Similar deportations have already taken place, even in recent times, in the United Kingdom and other countries which like to be defined “democratic”. If we abandon Pegah, we will surrender our humanity and “they” will win.

Political Apartheid: Policing of the Climate Camp Protests.

20-08-2007 19:09

"A RIOT cop restrains a protester": The Sun (1)

"If you go over there, I will facilitate your lawful protest" said one of the commanding coppers outside the action that took place at Agrexco on Saturday afternoon.

His idea of a "lawful protest" became clear very quickly as his officers pushed us into a kettle and held us there until people were taken out one by one and searched under Section One of PACE, before being sent on our merry way. FIT photographers were on hand to photograph each individual as they were searched. That 40 campers managed to get off site and to a known target in the middle of the heavily policed area is something else that FIT will have a hard time explaining to the powers that be.

Late afternoon march to BAA - Cops go crazy

19-08-2007 19:28

When the group left from the rear of the camp, at first mounted police tried to ride into people but soon backed off and allowed them to stream across the field. As the people approched the opposite side of the field there were many vans of riot police arriving in adjacent streets and deploying to meet the protestors. There were even van loads of police getting changed into their riot gear on the M4 motorway before scrambling up the bank. As protestors moved along the fence or tried to climb out of the field the police attacked them with batons and shields. I saw several hit, punched, repeatedly thrown to the ground, pushed into ditches, and sworn at. Over the next 15 minutes more and more riot police kept arriving (something like 100), many running into the field following mounted police that had galloped into a gap in the fence. Police prevented media from entering the field and a high hedge prevented them filming the scenes in the field.
