Emergency Protest At Current Hunger Strike At Guantanamo Bay

13-03-2013 09:03

Almost all of the 166 prisoners at Guantánamo Bay have been on hunger strike since early February. This protest which has led to force feeding against the human rights of prisoners and some prisoners losing over 15kg in weight was prompted by the confiscation of personal items from cells and the desecration of copies of the Koran. The situation is desperate, according to their lawyers, yet there has been no mainstream media coverage and little outcry from the international human rights NGO community. Come and join our protest on Sunday.

We want Caldwell's office to be inundated with emails so he hears it loud and clear that the cycle of injustice and cruelty must end.

Orwellian Secret Courts in the UK: Britain on the Brink of Tyranny

Judicial trials to be held in secret
By Global Research News

Global Research, March 10, 2013

Law and Justice, Police State & Civil Rights 114 64 7

Britain is on the brink of tyranny.

The Justice and Security Bill, if it becomes law, will enable judicial trials to be held in secret, and it will even be illegal to tell anyone about them. The bill has now gone through all stages in the House of Commons, and will now go to the House of Lords for consideration. In other words, it’s nearly there (

Philippine Gov’t lacks political will to go after the Marcoses

07-03-2013 12:28

One can understand Andres Bautista’s deep frustration in wanting to abolish the Presidential Commission on Good Government, which he has headed since October 2010, although — or because — it has failed to accomplish its two-pronged mandate, 27 years after President Cory Aquino created the PCGG through Executive Order No. 1.

EDL Numpties Achieve Nothing In Manchester - #edl #nwi @slatedl @misslbuttercup

02-03-2013 17:06

The EDL got absolutely nothing from today's visit to Manchester, leaving its braindead devotees so absolutely bored shitless, afterwards came a mad dash to jump naked into the canal at Canal Street (possibly wandering where the EDL's Gay Division had vanised to). After the usual run-of-the-mill speeches, anti-fascists will be pleased to know nothing has changed, Tommy, Kev and Hel still in-charge of the EDL, and not the French Revolution-like leadership change that many members had prayed incessantly to Nutzi Norse God "Odin" for.

EDL Support Hardcore Anti-Semites in Manchester This Saturday #edl #nwi @slatedl

27-02-2013 23:15

Since their inception in 2008, the EDL have repeated in parrot fashion the mantra that they are peacefully opposing Islamic extremism by taking to the streets. Formed after poppies were burnt in Luton, this far right group argued every day for a considerable time that they were not racist. Furthermore, setting up supposed Gay and Jewish Divisions, they appeared on radio, TV and the newspapers telling the world that they hated antisemitism and homophobia, and yet, few people believed them.

EDL Leadership Are Attending Manchester #edl @slatedl #NWI @misslbuttercup

26-02-2013 17:54

From a fresh tweet taken in the last hour, the EDL leadership are "wetting their pants" absolutely looking forward to visiting Manchester, which proves the "Uniting The Right" rubbish was a trap laid on by KKKev Carroll to get the rebels all back to pay subserviant lipservice to Tommy's deputies - the infamous "and universally loved" Hel Gower and Kevin Carroll, lol! All of those idiots such as the NWI, who seriously believe the terrible twosome, with their "muggy mushrooms" talk are not welcome in the North - think again. You idiots are being used to cement Kev and Hel's popularity.
