Quisling Moira Hamlin, chair of Avon and Somerset Police Authority, said: "I am disappointed that a local MP has hidden behind parliamentary privilege to make allegations about individuals and the processes around this decision." Would she have sued him? I think not it would attract too much publicity.
Looked at together these three articles reveal an intelligence-insulting degree of secrecy and cronyism. To add to the fact that the financial backers leased Hollerith machines to Hitler's Nazis during the second world war.

As a result of their work many of their activists are in prison on false and trumped up charges. Nowhere is the state repression of CIPO-RFM more acutely felt than in the remote village of San Isidro Aloapam where men and women have been murdered by paramilitaries supporting an American logging company who are trying to cut down their local forest. Other villagers have been detained and imprisoned by corrupt Police supporting the local establishment. At the the end of last year two London based IMC UK volunteers visited San Isidro to report on the situation. After many months of translating our findings from both Spanish and Zapatec we will shortly be publishing our material on this newswire. WATCH THIS SPACE....
In the meantime there will be a benefit gig for CIPO-RFM prisoners in London on April 16th. Details below. See you there.
