Police - Repression
Police---institutionally racist
By : Nick Grant - Monday July 25, 2005
4 comments
The Killing of a Brazilian man shows that either the British police are nervous, inexperienced and naive, or it was a deliberate act by the police to give a message to foreigners, especially coloured people. It is disgusting to hear all British politicians, including George Galloway, using decades-old stereotypes to praise police and security services. Presumably they do so because the police in Britain are seen as protectors. Their presence is seen as reassurance for the public as they are (...)

Police gun down worker in London subway: another tragic consequence of Blair’s war policy The public state execution of Jean Charles de Menezes in a London subway carriage on July 22 marks a watershed. England, the country of the Magna Carta, is now one in which innocent civilians can be shot dead on the capital’s streets at the discretion of the police, without any explanation, much less justification, and with the only outcome being a brief statement of regret. Eyewitnesses (...)

Scary Police State emerges in UK and USA
By : Gerald Lieberman - Monday July 25, 2005

The powers that be are taking us down another notch towards a total police state. What should cause public outrage is being swept aside as par for the course in today’s world of terror attacks. London police just chased down a man and shot him- after they had him detained and he did NOT appear to be a threat. He was pinned down on the floor and shot through the head five times- is that ok with you?! If he had a bomb strapped on him, why didn’t the police remove his coat to (...)

Did Karl Rove Lie to the FBI? By Jason Leopold Looks like Karl Rove did break the law, the same federal law that got Martha Stewart sentenced to six months in prison. It now appears that Rove, President Bush’s chief of staff, may have lied to the FBI in October 2003-a federal crime-when he was questioned by federal agents who were investigating the source responsible for leaking the true identity of an undercover CIA operative to the media. During questioning by the FBI about his (...)

London, July 22: A man, said by passengers to be “Asian”, was pinned down on the floor of an Underground train at Stockwell station in south London today and shot through the head five times by plainclothes policemen hunting for the London bombers. “This sort of thing happens only in Hollywood movies,” exclaimed a TV journalist. It seems British Pakistanis determined to introduce suicide bombings in London are now up against a police shoot-to-kill policy. Initial (...)

They killed a man in daylight. Police and security services are main beneficiaries of The ’war on terror’. State and its institutions are frighteningly powerful. They want more powers. They are unaccountable, unchecked and are presentened as ’protectors’. Here is what happened in London on 22 July 2005. Are we living in a civilised society?? The controlled the man or suspect.

Ms. Edmonds once had the pleasure of mainstream media attention in 2002, when she claimed that the FBI translation program was penetrated by a Turkish organization that deliberately mistranslated documents related to 9-11, but her story (...)

THE CALIFORNIA National Guard is under investigation—for spying on Californians. According to press reports, National Guard personnel monitored a Mother’s Day rally at the state capitol building sponsored by antiwar groups, which include the families of slain American soldiers. Guard officials deny the charge, but according to e-mails obtained by the San Jose Mercury News, the unit was tracking the protest under the auspices of California’s “Information (...)

GLENEAGLES, Scotland, July 6 (Xinhuanet) — The streets of Edinburgh looked quite normal on Wednesday except a heavy presence of police and some boarded up shop windows in downtown areas. With the fast-approaching Group of Eight (G8) summit in Gleneagles some70 kilometers way from the Scottish capital, Scotland is all drummed up to ensure a safe summit. On Monday, violent clashes took place on a high street of Edinburgh when over 1,000 anarchists and members of the so-called Carnival (...)

Fears were growing overnight that today’s G8 summit in Scotland was set to be derailed by violence and political bickering. Sir Bob Geldof, the organiser of the weekend’s Live8 concerts to fight poverty, was downbeat last night. "We have the potential to make this an historic G8," Geldof said. "But I don’t think they (G8 leaders) are anywhere near there." More than 60 people were arrested in Edinburgh as violent protesters infiltrated mass demonstrations for G8. (...)

HUNDREDS of anti-capitalist demonstrators took to the streets of Scotland’s capital today in a series of protests ahead of the G8 summit. The centre of Edinburgh was brought to a standstill as an estimated 500 anarchist protesters were involved in tense stand-offs with police.

TSA Secretly Snoops on Passengers

The Transportation Security Administration is the all-knowing, all-seeing federal agency in charge of taking our shoes off at airports, and our heroic leaders there have recently rooted out a treasure trove of invaluable data. Unfortuately, it’s not information about some secret cell of terrorists—it’s a trove of your and my personal information. If you flew in June of 2004, TSA snoops now have a file on you—even though Congress specifically told them not to collect (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE

by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
