Freedom: Norway Massacre - An Anarchist Perspective

29-07-2011 08:02

I’m sure many of you watched the scenes taking place in Norway with horror and rightly so. Particularly disturbing was the knee jerk reaction, reminiscent of the news coverage following the immediate aftermath of the Oklahoma bombings, the continual repetition that the incident had all the characteristics of an Islamist plot. The “gates of Vienna” mindset tirades posted in the comments sections of online coverage (before they apprehended the white blonde suspect) made for particularly infuriating reading; page upon page of ranting amounting to nothing less than an incitement towards a Muslim/Asian Pogrom.

This prejudged notion of Muslim involvement lasted right up until the shocked exclamations that the gunman was blonde and of Norwegian appearance. The Daily Express still couldn’t resist putting in a section about Jihadists and cartoons of the prophet Muhammed the next day despite contrary evidence, and The Sun went with the even crasser “Al-Qaeda Massacre, Norway’s 9/11.” This coverage is merely a manifestation of a wider arching problem created by an amalgamation of factors created by politicians, the media and the far right all pursuing their own particular agendas which happen to have a convergence of mutual interest.

The Left has lost its way over Libya

27-07-2011 22:08

In an essentially excellent piece Sarah Flounders ‘Libya: Demonization and Self-determination‘, near the beginning under the sub-hed ‘What should be the response to this terror?’ she writes:

“Unfortunately, a minority of groups or individuals who present themselves as opponents of war spend more time cataloguing Gadhafi’s past real or alleged shortcomings than rallying people to respond to this criminal, all-out U.S. attack. Their influence would be small, except that it coincides with the opinions of the U.S. ruling class. Thus it is important to thoroughly answer their arguments.”

WikiLeaks documents shed light on US-backed intervention in Libya

27-07-2011 21:42

US diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks expose some of the real reasons and diplomatic tensions behind NATO’s ongoing bombardment of Libya. Far from initiating a “humanitarian” intervention to protect civilians against Muammar Gaddafi’s government, Washington backed the NATO intervention for one reason only—the installation of a regime that better serves the strategic interests of the US, as well as the operations of the giant oil and gas companies.

This day...a day in infamy.

23-07-2011 16:45

The malevolent media at work.
Why Norway? The answer is simple. Because it gives quarter to those who leapt into an inner coma of satisfaction and delight upon seeing the destruction of 9/11 writ large across the world. It gives quarter to those who cannot see the terrible injustice of war without end and war without conscience. It gives harbour to those who's hatred of Islam is matched only by the indifference of those around them who will not succumb to such malevolance. It will not go to war, against those who live to give to war. For the people of Norway, the scale and horror of this tragedy, is directly proportional to the scale of the failure of the villainous and morally dishevelled Anders Behring Breivik to fit into an environment hostile to his very existence.

Call for Action for Palestine

21-07-2011 18:52

September will be a grand month, the UN, for the first time will vote on recognising Palestine as a sovereign state within the 1967 borders. Politically this is the most significant mile stone since the Oslo peace accord. This isn't yet an end to the occupation, what is likely to happen is that the US will veto it, probably in the security council.
So, the most likely outcome is that there will be a Palestinian state for a few weeks.

The insurmountable problem for those who categorise any accusation of the state acting deliberately wrongly as a “conspiracy theory”, is truth. There is, beyond any doubt, a police operation to infiltrate left wing groups in the UK with spies.
