german activists need UK help

15-01-2011 13:42

please send us stories of Kennedy or any other agents as provocateurs, or violating any other such laws. If you don't want to go public in the UK, which is hard to understand, then please send us your information. Mark Kennedy was acting as an agent provocateur here, which is making big legal problems for any related activities here, including german gov't/police spy operations. We just uncovered a guy here infiltrating antifa, which Kennedy tried to do, but as a UK spy! we

John Pilger's on the War on WikiLeaks and his Interview with Julian Assange

15-01-2011 10:51

The attacks on WikiLeaks and its founder, Julian Assange, are a response to an information revolution that threatens old power orders in politics and journalism. The incitement to murder trumpeted by public figures in the United States, together with attempts by the Obama administration to corrupt the law and send Assange to a hell-hole prison for the rest of his life, are the reactions of a rapacious system exposed as never before.

"Indignez-vous!" 600,000 sold, shaking France &world (Translation here) Hessel

15-01-2011 05:48

Coming to US, should be $4 or $5.
Perhaps the timing of the book, released during troubled times of economic crisis and inequality has rung a bell for the people of France. Maybe it’s the fact that the author is a holocaust survivor almost a century old -- former spy, escapee from a concentration camp, then Resistance fighter for the rest of WWII -- which lends credibility to his message. Maybe it's the poetic prose. Whatever the reason, Indignez Vous! by Stéphane Hessel is the #1 bestselling book on, and has been for some time. The book has sold over 600,000 in just three months.

Britain's war on Islam

14-01-2011 21:23

Daily Mail, 28 December 2010
Western vilification of Islam is longstanding, cruel, and unjustifiable. Notably post-911, they've viciously targeted Muslims for political advantage. Throughout America, continental Europe and Britain it rages, harming innocent men and women. With no regard for democratic values and justice, they're bogusly charged and imprisoned for crimes they neither planned or committed. Yet supportive media reports convict by accusation, the public unaware that supposed threats were lies, yet it repeats endlessly.

An oppressor’s bus lane brings only more misery at Qalandia

14-01-2011 07:51

Crossing Qalandia to get from the Palestinian West Bank in to Palestinian East Jerusalem is normally just a boring and pointless delay combined with an unpleasant interaction with a soldier. But the new bus lane gives Israel's private security contractors a chance to really have some fun. Acting out as if they were on a beach playing volleyball, they defend Israel valiantly from grandmothers and children.

Protesters Tell New York Business to Stop Providing Israel’s Lethal Tear Gas

14-01-2011 04:29

New York, NY, January 11 – Thirty-five protesters gathered during the lunch hour today outside the midtown Manhattan offices of Point Lookout Capital Partners, a New York firm that facilitates investment in Combined Systems Inc. (CSI). CSI, based in Pennsylvania, sells tear gas to the Israeli army that the Israeli army has then used to kill and seriously injure a number of unarmed protesters in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, including on January 1, 36-year-old Jawaher Abu Rahmah from the village of Bil’in.

Dave Lippman from Adalah-NY explained, “The Israeli military is using tear gas manufactured by CSI and financed through Point Lookout Capital as a weapon to crush the growing unarmed protest movement against Israel’s illegal confiscation of Palestinian land for Israeli settlements. We as US taxpayers are paying for some of the tear gas that Israel is shooting at Palestinian, Israeli and American protesters. The US government needs to stop providing this deadly aid, and CSI and Point Lookout need to end their complicity in Israel’s violent repression of legitimate protest.”

Democracy Dead in Oxford City...

13-01-2011 21:06
