12 months ago, a group of angry people decided to direct a protest at those they held most accountable for the current economic crisis: the bankers, the stock brokers, the mega-corporations. The protesters were, on the whole, ordinary people bewildered to find themselves struggling to keep their heads above water through no fault of their own. Educated people, hard-working people shocked into the realisation that they were not in full control of their own lives, but were at the mercy of financial institutions and global businesses whose only goal is to drive profits. People angered by the realisation that the government they thought existed to protect their rights is more concerned with protecting the status quo.

about the growth, people and philosophy of Wikileaks
Latest documentary from TOP DOCUMENTARY FILMS on the Julian Assange sex allegations containing interesting new details.
The English state started this in 1381 when they suppressed the Peasant’s Revolt and brought in legislation to keep the poor down. They’ve been at it ever since The dominoes are falling, history is repeating, but this time the outcome will be different.
One of the greatest
Note the use of the royal “We” in this piece of shoddy “journalism” from the UK Guardian’s Tanya ‘Arse’ Gold. Who exactly “we” are in this context is never made clear.
She claims “we” are lapping up the government’s propaganda bollocks and there’s no anger in Britain.
She must have been on a very long holiday to the Moon if she hasn’t noticed that disabled folk, the poor, students, the unemployed, schoolkids, teachers, soldiers, the police, lecturers, rioters, Occupy, trade unions, doctors, women’s groups, charities, NGOs, nurses, supporters of Wikileaks and pensioners are up in arms at the recent crappy policies of austerity and poor-bashing by the shower of shit popularly known as the Coalition Government.
You couldn’t make it up – although Tanya managed to…
I wonder if she writes in crayon?
There’s more of us than you…
Torture is a brutal attempt to destroy a person’s sense of dignity and sense of human worth. It acts also as a weapon of war, spreading terror beyond its direct victims to communities and societies.
States must take effective legislative, administrative, judicial or other measures to prevent acts of torture in any territory under their jurisdiction. There are no exceptional circumstances whatsoever — whether a state of war, or a threat of war, internal political instability, or any other public emergency or national security situation. States’ obligations also include the duty to provide effective and prompt redress, compensation and rehabilitation for all torture victims.
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s message for the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, 26 June 2012
And yet in the Guardian we read:
“Detainees who claimed they had been tortured were treated dismissively by officers at Dover immigration removal centre, prisons inspectors have said. Reports by officers at the Kent centre lacked photographs, body maps and judgements on whether scarring matched alleged abuse, inspectors found.”
Compare this response to how government officials act on terrorism and organised crime, yet torture is illegal in any circumstances under international law. The UK Government’s attitudes are disgusting and illegal under law.
