Owen Jones: This austerity backlash across Europe could transform Britain - Commentators - Opinion. And yet the past four years have proved a total vindication of Klein's argument.
A crisis of the market was cleverly transformed by free market ideologues into a crisis of public spending. Across Europe, the biggest slump since the 1930s has been used to push through policies straight out of some right-wing wet dream: the slashing of taxes on the rich and major corporations; the selling off of public services; and a bonfire of workers' rights. 12 May: Global Day of Action – Meet the 1% 12 May: Meet at 1pm, St Paul’s Cathedral.

When economies are atrophying, the powerful turn even more hyperactively repressive.

By Agence France-PresseSunday, November 13, 2011 16:51 EDT HONOLULU, Hawaii — A popular Hawaiian recording artist turned a top-security dinner of Pacific Rim leaders hosted by President Barack Obama into a subtle protest with a song in support of the “Occupy” movement.
Makana, who goes by one name, was enlisted to play a luau, or Hawaiian feast, Saturday night for leaders assembled in Obama’s birthplace Honolulu for an annual summit that is formulating plans for a Pacific free-trade pact. But in the midst of the dinner on the resort strip Waikiki Beach, he pulled open his jacket to reveal a T-shirt that read “Occupy with Aloha,” using the Hawaiian word whose various meanings include love and peace. He then sang a marathon version of his new song “We Are The Many.”

They have achieved this through their centrally controlled banks which they manipulate the flow and availability of money available to the public via interest rates.
As today’s medium of exchange for goods and services, “Money” is what everyone is striving for in order to obtain the goods and services they require and demand. In today’s materialistic and superficial world and because of our indoctrination that having materialistic possessions will provide us eternal love and happiness, we believe that money is the only way out of our misery and problems. Thus most of us make that our first priority in our lives because all of us want to achieve a better life for ourselves. Congress to Vote on EXPLICITLY Creating a Police State. The police brutality against peaceful protesters in Berkeley, Davis, Oakland and elsewhere is bad enough.
But next week, Congress will vote on explicitly creating a police state. The Senate is gearing up for a vote on Monday or Tuesday that goes to the very heart of who we are as Americans. The Senate will be voting on a bill that will direct American military resources not at an enemy shooting at our military in a war zone, but at American citizens and other civilians far from any battlefield — even people in the United States itself.

Occupy LSX criticizes British media The Occupy London Stock Exchange movement has criticized the British media for downgrading the anti-capitalism demonstration after claiming only one out of ten protest camps were occupied during the nights. British media, which had formerly imposed a total blackout on the event, claimed that the majority of Occupy LSX protesters who are camped outside St Paul's Cathedral leave their tents at night and return to their “warm beds.” According to the Daily Mail, “footage from a thermal imaging camera” shot by a police helicopter showed that the camps were almost completely empty during the nights.
“It suggests the majority of the 300 'defiant' protesters at the cathedral return home or to hotels after dark to sleep in warm beds,” the Daily Mail reported.

Guantánamo Bay contractor on shortlist to run UK police services. A US Pentagon contractor that was involved in building Guantánamo Bay is on a shortlist of private consortiums bidding for a £1.5bn contract to run key policing services in the West Midlands and Surrey. The Texas-based Kellogg Brown & Root, which was sold off by the controversial Halliburton corporation in 2007, is part of a consortium which has made it to the final shortlist for a contract that will see large-scale involvement of the private sector in British policing for the first time.
When KBR was still part of Halliburton it won a large share of Pentagon contracts to build and manage US military bases in Iraq after the 2003 invasion. A May Day alert for the Occupy movement. So, Occupy got it together for May Day – at least, in New York City. You would never know it, though, from mainstream news: those reports were full of what I call the "erectile dysfunction" narrative, the default narrative in American new coverage of mass protest. "Why Occupy May Day Fizzled", as CNN had it: flaccid efforts, always in "drenching rain", that may be well-intentioned but have no staying power. But if you click onto the new site Occupy.com – or if you actually went to the rally held in the late afternoon in Union Square – it was a very different story: thousands of euphoric protesters, a massive sound stage, edgy hip-hop artists who had created Occupy anthems that were euphorically received by the crowd, and representation by dozens of community groups and unions in Manhattan.
