UK Uncut. “There is no alternative.”

UK Uncut

We are told that the only way to reduce the deficit is to cut public services. This is certainly not the case. There are alternatives, but the government chooses to ignore them, highlighting the fact that the cuts are based on ideology, not necessity. Untitled. Awakening Full movie by Douglas Mallette.

Anxieties about jobs and cash produce anger, endanger the settled order, which, however iniquitous, must be protected. The establishment understands that duty. The camp outside St Paul's Cathedral by activists who want a fairer deal for all is winning public sympathy. Can't be allowed. They will be overcome, defeated by any means necessary. For more than a year, Tories in this coalition government have discredited, attacked and broken any collective resistance to their policies and economic decisions. When the country celebrates the bicentenary of Charles Dickens next year, perhaps everyone in government will read him and understand what happens to humans under uncontrolled capitalism. So we have the St Paul's settlement and the inevitable overreaction. Before this latest conflict we had the entirely justifiable student demonstrations against fee increases.

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.

Hawaiian singer surprises Obama summit with ‘Occupy’ song

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.” “I was pretty nervous. In fact I was terrified.

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.

‘Money’ the perfect tool for Enslavement

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. Through the media, the Corporations, Banks and the Government, they propose and influence what is socially acceptable or not and what is socially admirable or not. All these four entities normally work together hand in hand. Congress to Vote on EXPLICITLY Creating a Police State.

Global mass protests 15th October 2011 #globalrevolution #worldrevolution (make viral) Occupy Wall Street: No Demand is Big Enough. This week we take a break from the serialization of Sacred Economics: Money, Gift and Society in the Age of Transition to present an article inspired by the protests across the country connected to #occupywallstreet.

Occupy Wall Street: No Demand is Big Enough

We will resume with Chapter 13 of Sacred Economics next Thursday. Looking out upon the withered American Dream, many of us feel a deep sense of betrayal. Unemployment, financial insecurity, and lifelong enslavement to debt are just the tip of the iceberg. Right Here All Over (Occupy Wall St.) Block The Bridge, Block The Bill - 67 QuikPix. Dateline: Westminster Bridge, London, UK, 13:00-16:40, Sun 09 Oct 2011 - Enraged by the attempt by the Cameron-Clegg clique of millionaire politician pratts to wreck our National Health Service, today thousands of people from all over the UK heeded UK Uncut's Call to Direct Action and physically blockaded Westminster Bridge.

On a sunny Sunday afternoon, just three days before a vote in the House of Lords which could scupper the Con-Dem government's NHS-wrecking bill, we symbolically Blocked The Bill by Blocking The Bridge between the law-makers in the Houses of Con-mens to the west and St Thomas Hospital to the east. At the request of UK Uncut, I'm uploading these photos as soon as possible, without the photo-editing and captioning that normally characterises my Indymedia Action Reports.

So, letting the pix speak for themselves, here's what our bridge-blocking direct action looked like, including the direct democracy of Occupy London's General Assembly.

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.

Guantánamo Bay contractor on shortlist to run UK police services

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. Its former chief executive, Dick Cheney, was US vice-president.

The Guardian has learned that 15 groups of companies and individual firms have made it on to the most recent shortlist. More than 200 firms initially expressed an interest at a "bidders' conference" held in March. A May Day alert for the Occupy movement. So, Occupy got it together for May Day – at least, in New York City.

A May Day alert for the Occupy movement

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 – 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.

In other words – if built on further – a power base. The shocking truth about the crackdown on Occupy. US citizens of all political persuasions are still reeling from images of unparallelled police brutality in a coordinated crackdown against peaceful OWS protesters in cities across the nation this past week. An elderly woman was pepper-sprayed in the face; the scene of unresisting, supine students at UC Davis being pepper-sprayed by phalanxes of riot police went viral online; images proliferated of young women – targeted seemingly for their gender – screaming, dragged by the hair by police in riot gear; and the pictures of a young man, stunned and bleeding profusely from the head, emerged in the record of the middle-of-the-night clearing of Zuccotti Park. But just when Americans thought we had the picture – was this crazy police and mayoral overkill, on a municipal level, in many different cities? – the picture darkened.

To Europeans, the enormity of this breach may not be obvious at first. Why this massive mobilisation against these not-yet-fully-articulated, unarmed, inchoate people?
