To end any further doubt whether the EDL are being stage-managed by neanderthal football hooligans like Jeff Marsh, or hardcore neo-Nazis, you need to look at the comments online posted by the EDL's bankroller, the saviour of the hardcore fascist "Swedish Democrats", Alan Lake, as he forsees a future of Hitlerite Berlin-style Ghettos for Muslims in twenty years time, with summary executions for "race traitors", after the EDL has (in his view) successfully managed to destroy multiculturalism, and turn Asian and White people into sworn enemies.
Apparently the theme of this ride was a BP protest, which is understandable and why not?

The violent fascist EDL have confirmed they plan to inflict Bradford with Britain's deadliest-ever race riot in late August. Having cancelled an earlier visit to the multicultural rubble-strewn wreck of a city, the racist street-fighting army of football hooligans and hardcore white supremacists will invade Bradford, unleashing a pandemonium of ultra violence with chisels, bottles, knives and petrol bombs.

From switzerland, hemp activist Bernard Rappaz was condemned to 5 year and 8 month of prison, after an unfair trial, in which the charges mix cheerfully the violation of the federal drugs laws, money laundering, violation of the road traffic laws, etc etc. After 50 days of hunger strike to acquire a federal review of his trial, he was placed on probation, then re-incarcerated. He began a new hunger strike. The joint manager had only a suspended sentence and a light fine imposition. Did the Helvetic authorities sentenced him to death??

Serving soldiers from the Royal Corps of Signals and the Parachute Regiment have joined the protest in Parliament Square against the war in Afghanistan. Boris Johnson has described the sight of the soldiers and supporters as "mess and squalor" and MPs have called the protest, including the soldiers, as a "national disgrace". The protest camp is against the war in Afghanistan but respects troops.
PHILIPPINES - On April 27, 1977, urban poor leader Trinidad Herrera-Ripuno was arrested in Katipunan, Quezon City by virtue of an arrest and search and seizure order (ASSO) of then President Ferdinand Marcos. She was made to suffer brutal torture, which was meant to break her determination and spirit.
Under the Reagan administration (1981-89), the purpose of the “Continuity of Government” (COG) national emergency planning had officially changed: Extraordinary emergency measures, originally designed for an America devastated in a nuclear attack, were now to be applied to anything the US President considered an emergency.
Clearly 9/11 met the conditions for the imposition of COG measures, and we know for certain that COG planning was instituted on that day in 2001, before the last plane had crashed in Pennsylvania.
It is also clear that the planning by Cheney, Rumsfeld and others in the last two decades was not confined to an immediate response to 9/11.
What few have recognized is that nearly a decade after 9/11, COG plans are still authorized by a proclamation of national emergency that has been extended each year by presidential authority, most recently by President Obama in September 2009.
