The students are back in town

Yesterday's student demo (Wednesday 19 November) saw up to 10,000 people on the streets of central London (organisers' estimate), some scuffles with the cops at Parliament Square, and breakaway groups targeting the Business ministry and a few other venues. Earlier, the NUS head office got a new paint job with "Scabs" scrawled across the windows, after the students' union pulled out from backing the demo.

Paul Morris AKA Green Arrow has arrived on Twitter! @edlnews @slatfascists

Veteran BNP stalwart, and troll of the old Lancaster Unity website, Paul Morris, has arrived on Twitter posting toxic racism including Islamophobia and anti-Semitism. The long-time fascist loser is calling himself Kevin Smith, the creator of the Green Arrow cartoon strip but his twitter URL is a dead giveaway: -  https://twitter.com/1959greenarrow

The Siege of Julian Assange is a Farce

The siege of Knightsbridge is a farce. For two years, an exaggerated, costly police presence around the Ecuadorean embassy in London has served no purpose other than to flaunt the power of the state. Their quarry is an Australian charged with no crime, a refugee from gross injustice whose only security is the room given him by a brave South American country. His true crime is to have initiated a wave of truth-telling in an era of lies, cynicism and war.

Brisbane G20 - Ciaron O'Reilly prohibited then arrested speaking out for Assange, Manning, Snowden

G20 resistance all but evaporates in Brisbane heatwave.Policing for the G20 summit in Brisbane this past weekend was of overkill proportions. There was very little in the way of serious resistance, the Guardian reported that cops (6,000) outnumbered protesters and only 14 arrests were made. One of these was Manning and Assange solidarity activist Ciaron O'Reilly, who has been held in custody all weekend and will be brought before Brisbane Magistrates on Monday morning.

DISGUSTING FARAGE HAS A TASTE FOR SLIME @otanislove @exposing_ukip @edlnews

Since Farage and UKIP friends have revelled in stitching-up a former UKIP member with Met harassment, the UKIP leader has developed a fond taste for the unpalatable.
