In Solidarity With The Social Rebellion In Greece Against Apathy In The UK

12-12-2008 16:57

Cops shooting again towards demonstrators
On Saturday December the 6th, the Greek police committed a cold blooded murder of Alexandros Grigoropoulos, a 15 year-old boy, in the streets of Athens. Since then, and despite the states attempt to quieten the mood, thousands have taken to the streets and hundreds of police stations, banks and government buildings have been burnt down across the country. High School and university students have been leading demonstrations, clashing with the police whilst occupying campuses to organise themselves. All around Greece, in big cities and small towns, social unrest is mounting and tension with the state authorities has reawaken social consciousness.

to cut it short: we have enough reasons to hate the police

12-12-2008 15:57

there are several manifestations this weekend that were all planned
before the griots and now refer on them.

in vienna/ austria there is a demonstration on friday against repression
in germany militant group (mg)/ france (tarnac)/ austria. this
demonstration inaugurates a weekend of antirepression.

in berlin/ germany there is a demo on friday night in solidarity with
the people accused for being members of mg and trying to burn military
cars. mobilisation is very large for that.

on saturday in several cities people are on the streets in solidarity
with mumia abu jamal (berlin, hamburg). there is another demonstration
in bremen on saturday (against repression, internal/ external security,

what i consider to be very important on saturday is a demonstration in
freiburg against changing of police law/ demonstration law. as bavaria,
baden-württemberg (federal country south west of germany) tries to
implement this month a new law, that prohibits "militance" by
illegalzing to join a demonstration in black clothes (yes, true), what
is seen as an expression that you might be "in favour of violence". it
is obvious, that this new law is tried to be set up before the nato
summit in april. the german part of this summit is planned to be held in
baden-württemberg in the cities kehl and baden-baden.

Full article interview about Journalists for Mumia Abu-Jamal

12-12-2008 03:27

Mishandling the Guns
Those advocating this radical journalist's execution show a disturbing lack of concern about the undeniable problems of racism (and all documented police/DA/judicial misconduct) throughout this case. At the most fundamental level, the FOP-led 'Fry Mumia' campaign's lack of concern is racist....The FOP appeals to a racist lynch-mob mentality that has long infected the US, so calling this a 'legal lynching' is no exaggeration.

Creating an "Arc of Crisis": Destabilization of the Middle East and Central Asia

11-12-2008 16:18

Yugoslavia - Before and After Balkanization
The recent attacks in Mumbai, while largely blamed on Pakistan's
state-sponsored militant groups, represent the latest phase in a far more
complex and long-term "strategy of tension" in the region; being employed by
the Anglo-American-Israeli Axis to ultimately divide and conquer the Middle
East and Central Asia. The aim is destabilization of the region, subversion
and acquiescence of the region's countries, and control of its economies,
all in the name of preserving the West's hegemony over the "Arc of Crisis."
