TSG Goons Lash Out At Demonstrators By Kensington Palace Gardens

13-01-2009 11:05

Bell Hats
There is a rumour which seems to have gained credence and may still persist among those demonstrators who took part in the march from Hyde Park to the Israeli Embassy rally point on the 10th Jan 2009. Namely that the Kensington Palace Gardens Gate battle with the TSG happened at back gates to the Israeli Embassy.

But the truth in fact is someone had spotted a large unit of cops in bell helmets some safe distance behind the gates. An increasing numerous crowd parted from the march gathered at the gates and started throwing shoes, setting placards alight and shoving them under the gap of the gate. This in turn ignited the shoes.

The fact that a number of people were sitting on top of the gate wall waving the hammer and sickle flags of the MLKP maybe should have, but clearly failed to alert the crowd, that this entrance was actually the approach to the Russian Embassy!

A quick surf of multimap will confirm where Old Court Place is in relation to Kensington Palace Gardens!

Russell Means
American Indian activist Russell Means said President-elect Obama was selected by the colonial powers as president to improve the US image globally in the aftermath of George Bush. On Indian lands, the only people who get ahead are those who sell out to the colonial system.

“Every policy the Palestinians are now enduring was practiced on the American Indian,” added Means.

Gaza Demo - a cop opines

12-01-2009 20:46

I've been reading comments on the site for a few days and while you don't expect to find a lot of love for the Metropolitan Police on here the lack of objectivity is starting to border on the myopic. To suggest that the violence on Saturday was in some way planned or instigated by the police is to ignore both the facts and the truth. Quite sad really on a site that proclaims it's honesty and integrity as it's raison d'etra

I was there on Saturday and my colleagues and I were coming under attack for hours before the baton charges and mounted deployments that everyone seems to be solely focusing on. Police did not deploy in "riot" kit but normal everyday beat helmets and jackets. We sustained a constant barrage of shoes, sticks, placards, road cones, coins, the occasional firework and paint for several hours prior to kit being deployed.
Your own pictures posted on the site show this.

This email is being monitored by your government ...

09-01-2009 19:27

... or it will be from the 15th of March 2009.

What is happening then?

From that date forth your ISP (Internet Service Provider) will
by law have to keep a copy of the address of every email you send and
receive (Including any junk mail your receive offering you pills,
potions and other services!) and it is estimated it will cost the
government in the region of 15-25 Million pounds per year (How many
teachers, nurses etc could that fund?)
