Bedroom Tax protests in the shadow of flats that cost £68million EACH

Campaigners wanted to highlight the hypocrisy of expensive London properties standing empty while thousands of the poorest people are hit by the hated tax

Bedroom Tax protesters heckled against the hated ­policy outside the UK’s most expensive property, reports the Sunday People. Hundreds of people gathered at One Hyde Park in Central London where flats sell for up to £68million. Many of the properties are owned by foreign investors and scandalously remain empty.

Campaigners wanted to highlight the hypocrisy of expensive properties standing empty while thousands of the poorest people are hit by the Tax. Mike Knight, a tenant from East London, said: “We want to make sure we got our message across. “ This tax has been a disaster and the sooner it is scrapped the better.”

The London protests were mirrored across Britain with thousands turning out in Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham, Cardiff, Glasgow and other cities. Tory Minister Ian Duncan Smith’s cut in housing benefit for social tenants who have a spare bedroom has plunged families into rent arrears. Some have been forced to move since it was introduced last April.

In Manchester, Maria Brabiner, 48, showed the crowd a bill demanding she pay the council £11.82 per week in “Bedroom Tax”. The former social services worker from Salford said: “I gave up my job to be a carer for my mum. “I was living off my savings and then the Bedroom Tax came along. I lost a stone in weight. It’s been incredibly stressful. "It’s a nasty piece of legislation that targets the vulnerable.”

Mark Krantz, secretary of the Anti -Bedroom Tax Federation for Greater Manchester, told the protesters: “We have marched 10 times in this city as well as lobbying the courts. “We will be protesting every week and every month until the Bedroom Tax is history.” In Leeds, Dan Brooks of the city’s campaign group Hands Off Our Homes said: “We demand the council refuses to implement this policy that is causing stress, illness, poverty and hardship.”

Chairman John Davies added: “We are calling on the council to announce a no-eviction policy and to stop issuing possession proceedings against those who cannot afford to pay.” Dozens of councils are running out of emergency money for Bedroom Tax victims, it emerged.

"They were given Government cash for a Discretionary Housing Payments fund to help people who were falling into difficulty through the Tax. But one in five councils has rejected more than 40 per cent of applications and some up to 75 per cent in the past year, according to Freedom of Information replies to the False Economy campaign group.

  • I am NOT a sheeple

    Scientists at the University of Leeds have conducted research that proves the tendency many have to act like sheep, unwittingly following crowd as if they didn't possess a reasoning mind. While this tendency may have its uses in some situations, such as planning pedestrian flow in busy areas, it doesn't inspire a ton of hope for humankind.

    The study showed that it takes a minority of just five percent to influence a crowd's direction - and that the other 95 percent follow without even realizing what is going on. Professor Krause, with PhD student John Dyer, conducted a series of experiments in which groups of volunteers walked randomly around a large hall. Within the group, a few received instructions regarding where to walk. Participants were not allowed to communicate with one or intentionally influence anyone. The findings in all cases revealed that the informed individuals were followed by the others in the crowd, forming a self-organizing, snake-like structure (or flock of sheep, take your pick).

    "We've all been in situations where we got swept along by a crowd," said Professor Krause. "But what's interesting about this research is that our participants ended up making a consensus decision despite the fact that they weren't allowed to talk or gesture to one another. In most cases the participants didn't realize they were being led by others at all." Scary. Are we such sheeple that we allow a few "informed" people to lead us around without even knowing what's happening? Sadly, it makes sense. How many fall for scams of all kinds because of friends or "informed" sources, from pyramid schemes to religious hoaxes and political coverups. We seem to believe just about anything, or blindly tolerate it as long as the message is delivered with enough social credibility.

    How to be your own person

    There some things you can do to not only avoid living as a sheeple, but enjoy a full, prosperous and exciting life to boot. Here are a couple of the fundamentals that sheeple tend to miss. Determine what you want in life. Over 25 years teaching Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) I've asked thousands of people the question what do you want? I've been amazed at the incredibly low percentage of people who can answer it. What are your primary goals? Which direction are you headed? Where do you want to be in five years? The most common answer: I don't know. We'll see what happens. Perhaps one in ten can answer with certainty and specificity, which looks like this:

    My top 3 goals right now are...

    In five years my life will be different in the following, specific ways...

    The primary obstacles in my way are the following...

    The skills I need to develop to accomplish my goals are the following...

    No one can predict the future, but few things serve us better than intentionally pursing a chosen future, rather than waiting to "see what happens." If you do not choose your goals, your family, friends, community and culture will do so for you (knowingly or unknowingly). This is called status-quo. Not surprisingly, status quo is not that inspiring. Learn to make intentional, full decisions. So many of our decisions are not well considered. In NLP, we learn that decisions and motivation are simply comprised of visual, auditory and kinesthetic (feeling oriented) phenomena. These are the building blocks of mental processes. Bad decisions, impulsive decisions and ultimately regrettable decisions are so often missing a building block. We make impulse decisions without discussing things (missing the auditory). We make emotional decisions without considering other options (missing visual and auditory). Or we get caught in mental loops with no exit (endless internal dialogue with no feeling that prompts toward action).

    In all of these cases, because we lack the foundation for solid decisions, we are vulnerable to the whims of others. If we lack the ability to discuss and analyze decisions, we may accept someone else's analysis as gospel. If we tend to make emotional decisions, we may fall prey to whomever can pump us up into an emotional state. If we can't bring our thoughts to completion with a feeling of certainty, we may just do what others are doing to get ourselves out of the endless internal loop. Fascinating we don't teach goal setting and decision making skills in our education system. These help form the foundation of real character and individuality - and protect us from over dependency on the ideas or opinions of others.

    Make your decisions with all of your building blocks in place and with a clear set of goals in mind. This will keep you out of the realm of the sheeple. But don't take my word for it. Think it through.

    London is right at the heart of global capitalism. And the West End of London, including elite areas like Piccadilly, Mayfair and Knightsbridge, is where power and greed are most concentrated. The West End is home to:

    * Corporations. Many of the world’s most brutal and polluting companies, including oil and mining giants, arms dealers, and the businesses profiting from cuts and privatisation.

    * Vulture funds. Global base of the “hedge fund” and “private equity” industries, laundering the world’s blood money to invest in war, food speculation and debt slavery.

    * Tyrants. Government offices, embassies, cultural and commercial fronts of colonial powers and murderous regimes.

    * Playground of the mega-rich. Middle Eastern dictators, Russian mafia oligarchs, and home-grown parasites all see London as a “safe” place to hide and spend their loot.

    Our Carnival.

    Traditionally, carnival is the time where the people take over the streets, the bosses run and hide, and the world gets turned upside down. It is a time to celebrate our resistance and our dreams, to bring music and colour to the streets. And also to show our strength and our anger.

    The powerful feel safe in London so long as they go unchallenged. But the people looting our planet have names and addresses. On #J11 we will party in the streets, point out the hiding places of power, and take back the heart of our city for a day. Our streets. Our world.

    Join us.

    Like any good carnival, everyone’s invited: this will be an open, inclusive, and lively event. There will be a main route with sound systems and public meeting points. Bring music, costumes, banners, friends, ideas. We also encourage independent actions, and will publish soon a detailed map of the area to help you make your own plans. The Green and Black Cross group will provide experienced medical and legal support.

    'Axe the bedroom tax!': Thousands of protesters join demonstrations against levy on spare rooms in council houses

    Thousands of people have taken to the streets of the UK in protest at cuts to housing benefit for those with spare bedrooms. Around 3,000 people marched on George Square in Glasgow while up to 1,000 people assembled outside the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh, according to police estimates. The protesters insist that the new UK Government policy, dubbed the 'bedroom tax', will disproportionately affect disabled people and women, and could lead to evictions and deaths. It will hit 660,000 households with an average loss of £14 per week, according to Crisis.

    The plans are aimed at those renting council housing or housing association properties and not those in private properties. The changes are an attempt to encourage those who have spare bedrooms to downsize. People took to the streets of London, Glasgow and Edinburgh to complain about the tax.

    Disability rights activist Susan Archibald, in Edinburgh, said: 'We have heard talk about "strivers and skivers". 'One person can be a striver one day and then get made redundant. Will they be a skiver the next day? That's how easy it happens.' John McArdle, from anti-disability discrimination campaign Black Triangle, said: 'Every day our campaign receives more messages from desperate people who are on the brink of suicide.

    'This government is killing disabled people, and we must stand together and say enough is enough.' Bill Scott, from disability campaign group Inclusion Scotland, said two-thirds of UK properties affected house a disabled person, rising to four-fifths in Scotland. 'The purpose of an equality impact assessment is to find out and then change your policy so it doesn't disproportionately impact on the vulnerable,' he said.

    'Instead, the UK Government went ahead and implemented that policy completely unchanged. It is a disgrace that this government chose to attack disabled people.' Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith was branded a 'ratbag' by a heckler during his visit to Edinburgh last week. The insult was adopted liberally at today's march, with protesters wearing t-shirts and waving placards with the word 'ratbag' superimposed over Mr Duncan Smith`s face.

    Kelly Parry, representing the National Union of Students, said: 'He is a ratbag. The cuts that are going to come in are going to disproportionately affect women. 'We need to fight back so that never again will the people of this country be robbed by Westminster.' In a statement of support for the marchers, SNP MSP Linda Fabiani said: 'The Scottish Government has brought in mitigation measures and has made a firm commitment to scrap the policy in an independent Scotland.

    'There is no doubt that the bedroom tax is an abhorrent policy and the level of outrage surrounding what is being imposed is entirely justified.' The raft of Government welfare cuts that come into effect next week will heap misery on the UK's poorest families, a charity warned today. Queues at food banks are poised to get longer and homelessness is expected to increase, according to Crisis.

    Millions of homes will be hit by the combination of reforms that comes in from April, with low-paid workers, the unemployed and disabled people bearing the brunt of the cuts, it added. Council tax benefit, which covers some or all of the cost of the bill for struggling families, will be replaced by a new system that will be run by English local authorities but on 10 per cent less funding. Pensioners are protected under the changes but that is expected to mean a bigger burden on poor working age adults.

    Crisis said it also had 'serious concerns' about the replacement of disability living allowance (DLA) with a personal independence payment (PIP), claiming the the assessment process for the new benefit will exclude many disabled people who need support. Restrictions on the uprating of a number of welfare payments will also hit millions of households, it warned.

    Crisis chief executive Leslie Morphy, said: 'Our poorest households face a bleak April as they struggle to budget for all these cuts coming at once. People are already cutting back on the essentials of food and heating but there is only so much they can do. 'The result will be misery - cold rooms, longer queues at food banks, broken families, missed rent payments and yet more people facing homelessness - devastating for those directly affected, but bad for us all.'

  • Bedroom tax protests across the UK on 30 march 2013
    bedroom tax protests

    More rallies are being held across Great Britain this weekend to fight against David Cameron’s controversial new idea - bedroom tax.

    Two weeks ago, over 13,000 people came out to protest at 52 locations, demanding an end to the changes. The Sunday People has been at the forefront of the demonstrations, with placards reading “Stop Bedroom Tax” being visible across the UK.

    Since the paper launched its campaign in January, it has featured numerous individuals who will find themselves worse off if the scheme, which will see people of a working age in social housing who have a spare bedroom have their housing benefit reduced by £40 to £80 a month, is introduced. Last weekend, disabled grandmother Libby Green, 57, told how she was being pressured to move out of her home, which is next door to her son and his three children, while she battles breast cancer. She also suffers from spina bifida and had one of her legs amputated in 1996. She said: “It’s just unbelievable, I don’t know how they can sleep at night.” Meanwhile, Fiona Oxley-Goody was sent a letter to tell her she would have to pay £60 per month extra for a home she has had adapted so her severely disabled son Logan could receive round the clock care. These cases are among the 660,000 who will be affected if the tax comes in.

    A fortnight ago, Afghanistan war veteran Cody Lachey, 29, joined 1500 protesters in Manchester after his one bedroom flat was recently reclassified as a two-bed because of a box room. In Croydon, south London, Janet Richards marched with difficulty after being told she would lose her home too. After she had a leg amputated below the knee, the council gave her a two bedroom flat but she now faces paying extra as it is deemed she shouldn’t have her second bedroom as it is now counted as a spare room, even though a carer stays there.

    She said: “I have been too frightened to think about how I will cope. I’m terrified.” Below are where this week’s peaceful rallies are being held. If you want to tell David Cameron that his despicable new scheme is not acceptable, then join in!

    Due to technological advancements, over the past 35 years there has been an explosion in production, distribution, profits and wealth creation. Most of that wealth increase has gone to only one-hundredth of one percent of the population, to the modern day aristocracy. In the United States, the 400 richest people now have as much wealth as 185 million people combined, nearly 60% of the entire population. US millionaire households have at least $46 trillion in wealth, yet only one-tenth of one percent of the population makes one million dollars a year.

    $46 trillion. Can you comprehend how much money that is and what could be done with that stunning amount of wealth, the implications, the possibilities? Especially given the capabilities of modern technology. Think about how we could evolve society with that astonishing amount of wealth, and how much better off we would ALL be if we did. It’s hard to comprehend how much wealth $46 trillion represents. One trillion is equal to 1000 billion, or $1,000,000,000,000. People cannot comprehend that much wealth because there is no frame of reference, no comparison of scale or historical precedent. An entire generation of stratospheric wealth has been systemically denied to the people and hoarded into the hands of a few. It’s the greatest theft of wealth in history, a crime against humanity.

    Once you wrap your mind around how much wealth $46 trillion is, and realize how profoundly society can be transformed by it, you begin to grasp the fact that we’ve been living under neo-feudal rule. If Americans had a real understanding of how much wealth is being kept from them, we would have a full-blown societal evolution right now. There’s no doubt about it; the denial of wealth is what keeps us in check, in debt. As a wise man once said, “There are two ways to conquer and enslave a nation. One by sword, the other by debt.” The harsh, unavoidable truth is that we live in a system of debt slavery. The indentured servant is now the indebted consumer, indebted to a modern day aristocracy that thinks we are merely wage slaves and glorified peasants. Instead of using the advancement of technology and exponential increase in production, distribution and wealth creation to empower humanity, these modern neo-feudal lords are pathological in their shortsighted greed.

    When you understand the wealth at hand, you begin to recognize the crime against humanity that is afoot. We live in the richest, most technologically advanced society in human history. Yet here we are, in the 21st century, with the highest number of people living in poverty in American history. People can’t afford to pay their medical bills. Millions upon millions of American families foreclosed on. An all-time record number of children going hungry, as record-breaking profits and record-breaking bonuses are handed out to the bailed out aristocracy. It’s a massive crime against humanity. We have people walking this earth who crashed the global economy, then profited from it. They are responsible for the impoverishment of tens of millions of people, and for their recklessness, they get bailed out and then have the audacity to not only keep their jobs, but to give themselves all-time record-breaking bonuses, bonuses on the backs of hardworking American taxpayers. Their scandalous and shameful behavior makes the Robber Barons look like Boy Scouts. It’s so shortsighted, unstable and unsustainable. Pathological shortsighted greed is humanity’s most severe disease.

    To paraphrase Guy DeBord, ‘The economy has declared war on humanity, attacking not only our possibilities for living, but our chances of survival. When an all-powerful economy lost its reason – that’s what defines these times.’ We anticipate reactionary, propagandized minds impulsively attempting to dismiss this perspective as a demonization of wealthy people. To be clear, we’re not against wealthy people; just because you have wealth doesn’t make you a tyrant. It’s the people who crashed the economy and use their money to rig the political system, to rig the legal system, to rig the market, to rig the rules against hardworking Americans. It’s all the corrupt crony-capitalists we are calling out. In fact, we don’t blame any single person. It is a systemic problem. It’s our archaic and incredibly outdated system, a system that’s increasingly vulnerable to, and easily rigged by, the forces of shortsighted greed.

    We know many people within the economic top one percentile who are using their wealth and resources to improve the human condition in many different ways. We wish more wealthy people would put their money where their mouth is. We’re sure they will soon enough, in the interests of preservation, but just having wealth in no way makes you a tyrant. Again, when you break it down, it is really only one-hundredth of one percent of the population that is doing the damage. And ultimately, it is the political system and mainstream media that allows them to get away with it, that deceives, dumbs down and mentally conditions the population to the point where the overwhelming majority remains unaware of their own power and potential in an incredibly wealthy and technologically advanced society. Even more shocking than the $46 trillion and the 400 Americans who have as much wealth as 185 million Americans combined, is the fact that a mere 147 tightly knit companies control 40 percent of the global economy. This is obviously a highly unstable, unsustainable and unhealthy situation.

    To paraphrase from several quotes by philosopher and social psychologist John Dewey:

    ‘There is no such thing as the liberty or effective power of an individual, group or class, except in relation to the liberties and effective powers of other individuals, groups or classes. Liberty signifies release from the impact of particular oppressive forces, emancipation from something once taken as a normal part of human life, but now experienced as bondage. Today, it signifies liberation from the coercions and repressions that prevent people from participation in the vast wealth that is presently at hand.

    In relations between people, between capital and labor, in our attitudes toward other members of society, we have now developed a social conscience and awareness, and situations that would have been accepted a generation ago are now understood as an intolerable scandal. Our current crisis continues only because people refuse to look facts in the face and prefer to feed on illusions produced and circulated by those in power with an excess that contrasts with their withholding the necessities of life. The day that a critical mass of people awake to the realities of the situation, the restoration of freedom will commence.’

    Fortunately, that day is now upon us. A critical mass of humanity is now awake and aware of the obsolete systems that limit our potential. If the 400 wealthiest people and the CEOs from the 147 most powerful corporations were not so blinded by shortsighted greed, they would urgently call for a summit to strategize the most efficient and effective way to evolve their destructive behavior and use the immense resources that they are presently in control of to enhance the renaissance that is just beginning.

    We are on the right side of history. We are offering an olive branch. We come in peace, respect and love. We’re here to amplify the mass transition into a new age of enlightenment. The Occupy movement was the first awakening wave from a tsunami of transformation that is just beginning to wash over the planet. Each successive wave will be more effective in eradicating humanity’s most severe disease, pathological shortsighted greed.

    Ye are few… hoarding $46 trillion.

    You shall reap what you sow. Karma.

    As a very wise man once said, “Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day.”

    Just over the horizon shines the first ray of the new rising sun.


    Crowds of students have taken to the streets of London, protesting against rising university fees and the loss of financial support. It's the second anniversary of huge demonstrations caused by the trebling of tuition fees.


    Hundreds of protesters broke away from a huge anti-austerity demonstration in London on Saturday, and attempted to storm various multi-national companies on Oxford Street, in the West End central shopping district. The breakaway protest finished at Trafalgar Square around 1600GMT, after two hours of running skirmishes with the police. Saturday's march was against the latest austerity cuts proposed by the UK government. Tens of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of Central London in support of the protest, organised by the TUC (Trades Union Congress)

    Operation Jubilee - Rules of Engagement

    Protests like those in Greece and OWS, the recent surrounding of the Congress building in Madrid and most previous protests have failed, because the protesters allowed the police to provoke and arrest individuals, one or two at a time, whilst everyone else let them get away with it, with an "I'm alright Jack" attitude, until it's their turn, of course. Reverend Martin Niemoller famously stated - "In Germany, the Nazis first came for the communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, but I didn't speak up because I was a protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time there was no one left to speak up for me."

    The difference with Operation Jubilee, for it to succeed, is that it MUST be an all for one and one for all event; acting as one body, and any and all policemen who lay their hands on anyone protesting peacefully, especially Muad'Dib, will be citizen's arrested, using their own handcuffs against them. This will help the protest to turn out differently, for once. Both the people and the police need to know the rules that the people will be guided by. So that; if or when they attempt what they are likely to attempt (dragging away an individual); they will see that the people will do exactly what they said they would do, and that they have to keep their hands off peaceful protestors. Any weapons used against the people will be confiscated, by the people.

    THEY will try to lay down their fraudulent rules, falsely claiming they are laying down and enforcing the law, when they are NOT. If it isn't in the Bible, it is NOT a law, but a fraudulent piece of man-made legislation. So tell them that, and ignore their unlawful fraudulent orders. If they try to enforce fraudulent legislation, they will be committing a crime against the people, and thus are criminals who must be arrested, irrespective of their appearance. In order to prevent THEM from saying that the operation's rules would be an excuse for anarchists to do as they like, any wrong-doers among the people, will also be arrested by the people. That will also take care of any agent provocateurs/undercover cops - the ones who throw things, etc, in order to provoke a police charge and brutality.

    Peacefully protesting against treason, corruption and injustice is Lawful, and anybody who attempts to deny someone's right to do so is committing a crime, and will be arrested. Stay anonymous. Stay free and join Operation Jubilee.

    This film focuses on the Consensus meetings at The Bank Of Ideas and an update on Occupy St. Pauls.The Bank of Ideas is now promoting the Climate change agenda. The Tavistock Institute is also running "Social Dreaming Events" at Occupy St. Pauls. The Consensus meetings of The General Assembly appear to be using Delphi Technique to control and enforce their own agenda.

    "I remain to be educated in this............but it seems thus far that, whatever the historical truth, we have achieved little and have now, nonsensically, become intimidated into believing that we must not under any circumstances, protest or indulge in 'civil unrest' - because that will result in the "crackdown" that the TPTB are apparently, so eager to commence against us.

    However, this dreaded "crackdown" is nevertheless being slowly and inexorably exercised and carefully prepared around and against us *anyway* since we are currently CAPTIVE within the extant system, - what with the dozens, if not hundreds, of police requests to authorise rubber bullets against English people, on English streets; the requests for use of water cannon, and even live ammunition, and to say nothing of the relentless use of 'Terror laws'; the ever-increasing monitoring and authoritarian personal spying without cause as well as yet more 'laws' to arrest and unlimitedly detain citizens upon mere "suspicion" of intent, 'privatising the very police' and so forth, that it seems obvious that claims that we must "NOT" protest for fear that 'this will cause them to remove our freedoms ever more quickly', must be the most tragic and forlorn response to tyranny there has ever been in imaginable history...

    It simply helps them to continue to organise and arrange their 'crackdown' tyranny all the more easily and efficiently against us. In my honest opinion then, those that espouse this option, that we must make no resistance whatsoever against our encroaching enslavement, lest we bring it on all the quicker, are in actual fact, talking as did the Nazis Jewish victims venture in the camps and ghettoes - even to the point of selecting "capos" to help in their own destruction all the quicker. Talk of, "we must not resist cos thats what they want", is the expression of a suicide wish rather than to make any attempt to prevent ones clear and impending doom and is not for me, I'm afraid. It appears rather like the panicking squeaking of prey animals upon hearing the sound of their stockade being hammered around them.

    It was quite understandable for the Captive Jews to come up with this policy of , "we must "NOT" protest for fear that this will cause them to kill us all the quicker" Indeed, the victims were so cowed that they would not meet the Guards eyes. They were utterly defeated and, knowing they had little chance of survival, were desperately trying to delay their individual ends. This similar talk of , "We must not protest cos they will 'crackdown on us" in England that I hear now is misguided. ('Misguided' is not the word I would use!)

    We are not in concentration camps yet and resistance is NOT futile! This talk of, "we must "NOT" protest cos thats what they want in order to 'crackdown'" is more the talk of possibly, government infiltrators, and certainly, those that use that cowardly nonsensical phrase are most certainly not Patriots in any sense of the word; they are more, collaborators - be they consciously aware of it or not."

    By Norman Scarth
    Facts you must first accept: What Hitler failed to do by force, Quislings have done by stealth.

    They hold EVERY position of power & influence. Under them, Britain is an Orwellian Totalitarian State. We who have fought back through the courts were right to do so, giving them the chance to prove we still have the Rule of Law. Having had it proved all too well that we do not, time to start guerrilla tactics. Under similar circumstances the Resistance Movements in Nazi Occupied Europe (French & Norwegian being best known) were prepared to risk their lives - & sometimes gave them.

    Their courage was re-inforced by the thought that an Allied Army was getting ready to invade. Violence now would be as justified as it was then, & the British Quislings deserve the same fate as the original Vidkun Quisling.

    Unfortunately, there is no 'Allied Army' coming to the rescue now. Apart from which, most of the British People of today are either Quislings themselves, or brainwashed, or spineless, addicted to the 'Opium of the Masses': the pap on TV, hysterical about 'Sport' (the London Olympics trying hard to be better than Berlin in 1936 - for the same reason), rather than take part in Demonstrations, Occupy Movements etc. All credit to those who do, but so few having time to join in means those who do are at risk of brutal attack by the British Gestapo or prosecution in our Quisling courts.

    Sadly, they are not as effective as they deserve to be, & are soon forgotten. How can they get the same message across, with less time, less effort & LESS RISK, but the message last a lot longer? Instead of spending hours or days, spend JUST SECONDS to spray the word 'Quisling' (with a swastika inside the Q) on all public buildings, courts, & similar haunts of the Quislings - ESPECIALLY NEWSPAPER, RADIO & TV OFFICES! Spray it on the stonework, where it will be much more difficult to remove.

    As the word becomes known, just the letter 'Q' (with the swastika inside) will be sufficient. Well - what R U waiting for? GET ON WITH IT !

    Norman Scarth.

    PS: Even the many thousands of Stop the War people who paraded through London were ignored, the invasion of Iraq still took place, & they too are forgotten. I suggest they were indulged by the Blair Regime because they were protesting in the wrong place. Instead of London, Whitehall & Downing Street, they SHOULD have been picketing the Army barracks, saying 'DON'T GO'. We need the army on our side now: Sites near the the barracks would be prime places for graffiti messages "SOLDIERS: U HAVE BEEN CONNED BY QUISLINGS!"

    PPS: Many refer to the non-violent protests of Mahatma Gandhi (who I greatly admire). Few know that even he said, "I prefer non-violence only if it comes from strength. If it comes from cowardice, I would prefer violence." The difference between his situation & we here in Britain was that he had MILLIONS of supporters, many of them prepared to give their lives.

    A philosophy student who claimed he suffered head injuries from a police baton during the anti-fees protest in London faces trial on Monday for violent disorder at the demonstration.

    Supporters of Alfie Meadows, 21, who underwent emergency surgery for his injuries, have vowed to demonstrate outside Kingston crown court, in Surrey, against what they say is an attempt to silence legitimate protest by pursuing the victim of an assault rather than investigating any police who allegedly carried it out. Meadows had brain surgery after the anti-fees demonstration in December 2010 when he said he was struck over the head with a police truncheon. He was one of 44 people, including six police officers, treated in hospital after rioting broke out at the demonstration over student fees. Meadows, who was a second-year student at Middlesex University at the time, says he was injured as he attempted to leave an area where protesters were being kettled by the police.

    The Independent Police Complaints Commission mounted an inquiry "following an allegation that a 20-year-old received serious head injuries after being hit on the head with a police truncheon during the student protests in London". Meadows was charged in April last year with violent disorder in connection with the demonstration. He is pleading not guilty and will be represented in court on Monday by Michael Mansfield QC. Liam Burns, president of the National Union of Students, is one of those challenging the decision to charge him. "The charges against Alfie must be dropped and an urgent investigation into his assault launched," said Burns. "Students across the UK today will be saying 'we are all Alfie Meadows'."

    Meadows's mother, Susan, an English literature lecturer at Roehampton University, and his father, Matthew, a writer and artist, have said they feel the alleged behaviour of the Metropolitan police was disturbing. Meadows is facing trial along with a number of other students. The details of the charge against him are that on 9 December 2010 he used or threatened unlawful violence when present together with others … and the conduct of them all was such as would cause a person of reasonable firmness present at the scene to fear for his personal safety. His mother said shortly after the demonstration that her son had suffered bleeding to the brain as a result of the blow to his head. He underwent a three-hour operation at Chelsea and Westminster hospital.

    Matt Foot, a lawyer who has represented many students involved in the protest, said: "Alfie Meadows is one of a large number of young student protesters of good character charged with violent disorder. This seems to be a blanket policy by the police and prosecution to deal with protesters with one of the most serious offences available." The IPCC said its investigation into the allegation that Meadows had been struck over the head by a police baton had been suspended at the request of the student's legal team last August because of the criminal proceedings against him. The inquiry – which was an independent investigation – was one of several carried out by the police watchdog in the aftermath of the anti-fees protest.

    In one case related to the anti-fees protest the IPCC has sent a file of evidence to the Crown Prosecution Service following an investigation into allegations that three Met police officers conspired to wrongly arrest a 20-year-old man and that one of them also assaulted him. No decision on charges has been made to date.

    Activists given five minutes to pack and leave after high court decision gives City of London green light to clear encampment

    Police and bailiffs have moved in to begin clearing the Occupy London encampment outside St Paul's Cathedral, after a high court decision gave the green light for the City of London to clear the protest site. Activists were told by bailiffs that they had five minutes to pack their tents and leave or they would be obstructing a court order. The eviction began shortly after midnight. Dozens of activists appeared ready to comply and started clearing away tents and other belongings, but a number of protesters immediately began building an improvised barricaded enclosure using wooden pallets and pieces of debris.

    Hundreds of police officers in the immediate area of the square had riot helmets ready by their sides, and smaller detachments of riot officers carrying shields stood ready to one side. Dozens of bailiffs in yellow vests waited alongside rubbish lorries, and police in blue overalls, who had riot helmets strapped to their sides, stood by and watched as many of the protesters started taking down their shelters. One group, however, appeared ready to resist any attempts to remove them as police set up a cordon between the camp and the entrance to the cathedral. At midnight, five spotlights illuminated the square and the protesters as the standoff continued.

    City of London and Metropolitan police cleared and then blocked roads around the square where protesters have been camping since late last year as part of a protest against the financial and banking elite. Inside the small enclosure, which a number of activists had built up, one man let off a red smoke flare while nearby a speaker system pumped out music. One protester, Ed Greens from north London, said he had been with Occupy since last year. "We were expecting them on Monday night or soon after," he said. "Some people will resist things like this, but for me personally there is nothing wrong with self-defence."

    Among those at the scene were Symon Hill, associate director of the Ekklesia thinktank, who said that the word had gone out for dozens of Christians to come to the scene as part of plans to put in place "a ring of prayer" in an attempt to halt any violence. Catherine Brogan, a poet and high-profile member of the Occupy movement, said it made sense for the authorities to come on a Monday night. "There was talk of prayer rings and of other people coming down to support us when this happened, but many of our supporters are elderly or obviously live in areas other than the centre of London, so this would have caught them by surprise," she said.

    "This has always been a peaceful process, and it has never looked like turning into anything other than that," she added. "There's definitely no Molotov cocktails stashed, it is very timid. I just hope the police respect that, and don't react in the way I've seen them reacting at other times, at other protests." Activists from the camp say they will take their case to the European court of human rights, but judges denied them a stay of eviction, and it is understood that the City of London Corporation, which brought the case against the protest camp, has has now acted to remove up to 100 tents from the grounds of the cathedral. A City of London statement said last night: "We regret that it has come to this, but the high court judgment speaks for itself, and the court of appeal has confirmed that judgment. High court enforcement officers employed by the City of London Corporation are undertaking the removal with the police present to ensure public safety and maintain order. We would ask protesters to move on peaceably.

    "The City of London Corporation is ensuring vulnerable people are being helped and supported to find appropriate accommodation in partnership with Broadway, a charity for the homeless."



    Protest inside and outside Tesco - Westminster, London

    Tesco have been taking on unpaid labour. Workers only receive their welfare benefits. No pay and conditions. If people receive to work for their benefits they will lose their meagre benefits. Tesco has thousands of workfare placements throughout the UK. Majority do not receive a real paid job at the end. This is not about work experience it is about slave labour. Tesco make millions in profit yet they won't pay these staff a living wage.
    Police were called after about 12 protesters forced the closure of a Tesco store opposite the Houses of Parliament.

    They sat down or stood by the tills at the Tesco Express branch at Portcullis House, Bridge Street, central London. The demonstration was over a job advert which looked for permanent workers at a Suffolk store in exchange for expenses and jobseeker's allowance. Tesco has amended the advert saying the mistake was due to an IT error.

    The store was closed for an hour. A Metropolitan Police spokesman said there had been no arrests.

    Guaranteed job interview

    The advert for a night-shift worker appeared on the Jobseekers' Plus website. It was offered under the government's "sector-based work academy scheme" which is linked to the payment of benefits.

    The idea that providing work experience for unemployed young people is some kind of forced labour is utterly and completely absurd” Says tory thug Chris Grayling Minister for Employment

    But the supermarket giant said the impression it was seeking to replace full-time workers was mistaken. Tesco has explained that the advert was "a mistake caused by an IT error by Jobcentre Plus". It was an advert for work experience with a guaranteed job interview at the end of it as part of a government-led work experience scheme. Placements last for six weeks, the Department of Work and Pensions said. A spokesman for the Right to Work protesters said: "Tesco reports that over the past four months some 1,400 people have worked for them without pay. "Only 300 got a job with the company. "The Tory government is slashing jobs and then punishing the jobless. And to add insult to injury, they are forcing people to work for free to boost profits for big business."

    'Completely absurd'

    A spokesman for Tesco said: "No-one is under any obligation to take part in the scheme, and Jobcentre Plus has assured us that all of those who have come to Tesco have done so as volunteers." He added: "We understand the concern that those who stay in the scheme longer than a week risk losing their benefits if they drop out before the end of their placement. "We have suggested to the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) that, to avoid any misunderstanding about the voluntary nature of the scheme, this threat of losing benefit should be removed."

    Minister for Employment Chris Grayling said: "Our work experience scheme is voluntary and thanks to companies like Tesco and many others has provided a route for literally thousands of young people to find their first job. "The idea that providing work experience for unemployed young people is some kind of forced labour is utterly and completely absurd." A DWP spokesman said: "The scheme is voluntary and no-one is forced to take part and the threat of losing the benefit only starts once a week has passed on the placement - this was designed to provide certainty to employers and the individuals taking part."
