‘As we gather together in solidarity to express a feeling of mass injustice, we must not lose sight of what brought us together. We write so that all people who feel wronged by the corporate forces of the world can know that we are your allies. As one people, united, we acknowledge the reality: that the future of the human race requires the cooperation of its members; that our system must protect our rights, and upon corruption of that system, it is up to the individuals to protect their own rights, and those of their neighbors; that a democratic government derives its just power from the people, but corporations do not seek consent to extract wealth from the people and theEarth; and that no true democracy is attainable when the process is determined by economic power.

We come to you at a time when corporations, which place profit over people, self-interest over justice, and oppression over equality, run our governments. We have peaceably assembled here, as is our right, to let these facts be known. They have taken our houses through an illegal foreclosure process, despite not having the original mortgage. They have taken bailouts from taxpayers with impunity, and continue to give Executives exorbitant bonuses. They have perpetuated inequality and discrimination in the workplace based on age, the color of one’s skin, sex, gender identity and sexual orientation.

They have poisoned the food supply through negligence, and undermined the farming system through monopolization. They have profited off of the torture, confinement,and cruel treatment of countless animals, and actively hide these practices.They have continuously sought to strip employees of the right to negotiate for better pay andsafer working conditions. They have held students hostage with tens of thousands of dollars of debt on education, which is itself a human right.They have consistently outsourced labor and used that outsourcing as leverage to cut workers’healthcare and pay. They have influenced the courts to achievethe same rights as people, with none of the culpability or responsibility.

They have spent millions of dollars on legal teams that look for ways to get them out of contracts in regards to health insurance. They have sold our privacy as a commodity.They have used the military and police force to prevent freedom of the press. They have deliberately declined to recall faulty products endangering lives in pursuit of profit. They determine economic policy, despite the catastrophic failures their policies have produced and continue to produce. They have donated large sums of money to politicians, who are responsible for regulating them. They continue to block alternate forms of energy to keep us dependent on oil. They continue to block generic forms of medicine that could save people’s lives or provide relief in order to protect investments that have already turned a substantial profit.They have purposely covered up oil spills, accidents, faulty bookkeeping, and inactive ingredients in pursuit of profit.

They purposefully keep people misinformed and fearful through their control of the media. They have accepted private contracts to murder prisoners even when presented with serious doubts about their guilt.They have perpetuated colonialism at home and abroad. They have participated in the torture and murder of innocent civilians overseas.They continue to create weapons of mass destruction in order to receive government contracts. To the people of the world, we, the New York City General Assembly occupying Wall Street in Liberty Square, urge you to assert your power.Exercise your right to peaceably assemble; occupy public space; create a process to address the problems we face, and generate solutions accessible to everyone.

To all communities that take action and form groups in the spirit of direct democracy,we offer support, documentation, and all of the resources at our disposal.
Join us and make your voices heard!

‘WE ARE THE ONES WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR’

The Royal Family is to be granted absolute protection from public scrutiny in a controversial legal reform designed to draw a veil of secrecy over the affairs of the Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William.

Letters, emails and documents relating to the monarch, her heir and the second in line to the throne will no longer be disclosed even if they are in the public interest.

Sweeping changes to the Freedom of Information Act will reverse advances which had briefly shone a light on the royal finances – including an attempt by the Queen to use a state poverty fund to heat Buckingham Palace – and which had threatened to force the disclosure of the Prince of Wales’s prolific correspondence with ministers.

Lobbying and correspondence from junior staff working for the Royal Household and Prince Charles will now be held back from disclosure. Buckingham Palace confirmed that it had consulted with the Coalition Government over the change in the law. The Government buried the plan for “added protection” for the Royal Family in the small print of plans called “opening up public bodies to public scrutiny”.

Maurice Frankel, head of the Campaign for Freedom of Information, said that since the change referred to communications written on behalf of the Queen and Prince Charles it might be possible for “park keepers working in the royal parks” to be spared public scrutiny of their letters written to local authorities.

The decision to push through the changes also raises questions about the sincerity of the Liberal Democrats’ commitment to government transparency. In opposition, senior Liberal Democrats frequently lined up to champion the Freedom of Information Act after it came into force in 2005.

Ian Davidson, a former member of Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC), told The Independent: “I’m astonished that the Government should find time to seek to cover up royal finances. When I was on the PAC what we wanted was more disclosure not less.

“Every time we examined royal finances we found extravagance and indulgence as well as abuse of expenses by junior royals.

“Everywhere we looked, there were savings to be made for the Government. This sends the wrong message about public disclosure and accountability.”

Paul Flynn, another member of the committee, described the special protection for the Royals as “indefensible”. He said: “I don’t think it serves the interests of the public or the Royal Family very well.”

Wildlife officials are trying to determine what caused more than 1,000 birds to fall dead from the sky over a small town in the US state of Arkansas.

The birds began dropping over the town of Beebe just before midnight on New Year’s Eve.

Various reasons for the mystery deaths have been put forward.

Tests are being carried out on about 500 red-winged blackbirds and starlings found dead in the US state of Louisiana.

It happened just a few days after some 3,000 blackbirds fell to Earth in neighbouring Arkansas in the small town of Beebe.

Several scientific explanations as well as conspiracy theories have been put forward to explain what may have happened.

A number of birds have been found dead in the Swedish city of Falkoping, leaving authorities puzzled.

This comes days after thousands of birds mysteriously fell to their deaths in the US state of Arkansas.

Veterinary officials said that the case in Falkoeping was rare and cited a number of reasons for the sudden deaths such as “disease or poisoning”.

‘The Core’ movie (2003)

Last weekend I was sat with a friend outside a bar having a pint (as you do), when in-between conversations, I noticed an advert on the side of the bus stop shelter promoting flu vaccinations for the elderly and pregnant women. I think I made my usual grunt or ‘tut’ and then carried on our conversation.

But I remembered later a conversation that I had shared with my family over the winter holiday period, concerning flu jabs and who had had one. Both these events prompted me to look a little further into it and as a result, the following is a brief start on what appears to be a rather large and controversial subject.

The link below goes to a lecture called ‘Mercury, Autism and the Global Vaccine Agenda’ and although its filled with medical terminology and acronyms, its well worth a watch (especially as the speaker suggests that Autism is reversable.)

Films like ‘I am Legend’ (set in 2012!), although largely percieved as being purely for entertainment, also add to the fear of these types of epidemics (although perhaps without the flesh eating zombies element)

Psywar -‘The real battlefield is in the mind.’

Programe information

The film explores the evolution of propaganda and public relations in the United States, with an emphasis on the “elitist theory of democracy” and the relationship between war, propaganda and class.

This is not a high budget affair, but was financed via a blue collar job, and is being released online for free. The interviews contained within are original and were conducted by proxy.

Although Psywar does not explore 911 or false flag operations, it is certainly relevant to these issues, as 911 was perhaps the greatest exercise in psychological warfare ever conceived. I intend to deal with the 911 and the war on terror in subsequent entries. A few notable 911 truth scholars do appear discussing related subjects, including Peter Phillips and Graeme MacQueen.

This film is designed both as an introduction to the concept of psychological warfare by governments against their citizens, and as an exploration of certain dominant themes in American propaganda. Significant time is also devoted to different conceptions of “democracy” as theorized by figures like Walter Lippmann, Edward Bernays and ultimately the founding fathers of the United States itself.

‘The only thing constant in life is change’ – François de la Rochefoucauld.

This poster says it all for me. It acknowledges a condition in the way we are and how we think and in many ways looks beyond the issue of tuition  fees etc and addresses the wider issue,  of a change in conciousness.

Attack on Royal’s Car

More details on todays ‘Royal Car incident ‘:

Student protests: Radio failure claims rejected

Source: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-11975280

Police have rejected suggestions that a communication breakdown led to the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall being caught up in student protests.It has been reported that police guarding the couple were using a different radio frequency to those policing the London demonstrations. Scotland Yard insisted the two teams were in contact and may have used mobile phones or e-mail. A major inquiry into the student disorder of recent weeks has begun.

‘Intent on violence’

The prince’s and the Duchess of Cornwall’s car was daubed with paint and had a window smashed during tuition fee protests on Thursday.The royal couple were being escorted by outriders and Royalty Protection Officers to a theatre in central London when their car was attacked. A police spokesman said the route along Regent Street had been checked minutes before the incident and was deemed to be safe.Ex-home secretary Alan Johnson said he was “amazed” by newspaper claims that teams were not fully in touch because protection officers had been so “meticulous” whilst protecting him. And former Met firearms officer Roger Gray said it may have been more confusing if officers shared the same radio frequency, because there was a risk they could start interrupting each other.

Clarence House, meanwhile, has refused to comment on reports the Duchess was poked with a stick. The police blame a fast-moving situation on the ground for the security breach, as protesters had been roaming through the West End in small groups, away from the larger protest in Parliament Square. There were violent clashes on Thursday as MPs voted to allow university tuition fees to rise to up to £9,000 per year in England. Prime Minister David Cameron condemned the disturbances and Scotland Yard said it had launched a “major criminal investigation” into student disorder between 10 November and 10 December.

But students have criticised police tactics, particularly of holding demonstrators in a small area, known as “kettling”. The Independent Police Complaints Commission is investigating a claim that 20-year-old Middlesex University student Alfie Meadows suffered serious injuries after being hit on the head with a police truncheon. And protester Jody Mcintyre, who blogs about campaigning issues, claimed police hit him with a baton and twice dragged him out of his wheelchair around Parliament Square. He told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “One policeman hit me with his baton on my shoulder and then around four policemen dragged me out of my wheelchair and carried me away against my will.”

Half an hour later, a policeman who recognised him from the first incident ran over, pushed him out of his wheelchair and dragged him across the road by his arms, he added.

The National Union of Students said there were likely to be more protests as the issues continue to be scrutinised over the coming months. President Aaron Porter said: “Students are telling me they want to continue to protest. I think we need to find a way to facilitate that, but I also want to do it in a way that doesn’t lose public support by allowing those set on violence to take part.” Only 28 Lib Dem MPs – fewer than half – voted for the government’s plans for tuition fees. Six Conservative MPs voted against. Three ministerial aides resigned. The policy will see the basic fee cap rise from £3,290 to £6,000 and universities in England able to charge £9,000 in “exceptional” circumstances.
