29-10-2004 22:06

She died.There was no specific action she did, there were no "riots" around her, nothing. She was just celebrating and chanting with others.Meantime police is trained to see the enemy in us, the people: this is what we learn from this murder.

£1m goodbye for "Hanging Judge"

29-10-2004 09:39

This weeks Schnews's "and finally" section tells us that, following a year of leave, Roger Davies, the "Hanging Judge of Horseferry Road", has resigned, with his index linked pension intact. They calculate he stands to make up to £1m from the deal. Mayday will never be the same again. I'm sure a number of Indymedia readers will join me in wishing Roger a happy retirement .........

A climate of censorship and repression still clings to modern Greece, and reports about the trial of the Coastguard who assaulted Necati modify the facts quite freely and continue to undermine Necati's credibility. This is in line with earlier actions that tried to styop him testifying at all. It is a shame!

Elections in Ukraine: too far, too close

27-10-2004 15:53

The antiKKKrime war against the excluded continues unabated

27-10-2004 14:59

Britain’s totalitarian terror against the socially excluded and the different is escalating and reaching new heights. As the sheep call for more “protection” from one another, the statist tyrants grab more and more power, and what few freedoms exist are crushed mercilessly under their jackboots. Another animal rights activist has been served with an ASBO and also jailed, for absolutely nothing – his alleged “crime” was simply to shout at a vivisector. Other victims of ASBO’s include a homeless man jailed for visiting his girlfriend in a town where he was banned for begging, someone banned from owning a TV, someone banned from listening to gangsta rap, and even a barrister given an ASBO for banging a mop on the floor! But resistance is possible and growing.
