“In our age there is no such thing as ‘keeping out of politics.’ All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.”— George Orwell (via sexyneverleft)
Finally student finance day = £3000 in my account in 40 minutes, WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT
also amazing and tiring day full of electricians protests and meetings, seriously if you don’t know about the electricians check it out- THEY’RE MILITANT AND AWESOME. Everything has been worth the lack of sleep the last week or so :)
I dunno, I just think that the government seems to think they can take certain groups and just rescind their human rights... Living in a caravan is a way of life for my family, my people and who the fuck has the right to take that away? Fuck the gorgers! We don't infringe on their rights and freedoms. Let us live in peace and safety in a place of our choosing.
100% agree, too true! They’re just trying to live and have no-where else to go, I completly understand why people got abit violent- they’re defending their freedom and livelihoods…what is a few stones thrown at violent brutal police next to the brutal attack on them, nothing!
I'm seeing all these pictures your posting about the dale farm, could you educate me on what that is, and why they're being evicted? Thanks!
It’s basically a traveler site that’s been there for years which has expanded meaning some of it doesn’t have planning permission…the tory council are trying to evict it because it’s ‘on a green belt and they don’t have planning permission’- this when they clearly don’t give a shit about the green belt since they’re still building on it elsewhere….it’s basically racism against the irish travellers…they’re all great down there, people that call them scum don’t know fuck all! check out this website http://dalefarm.wordpress.com/
You stupid person, you really have no understand about the common law and how the world works. "Fuck the police, racist etc" It's called removing people who are there illegally, they contribute nothing to society and pay no tax. They have NO planning permission to build on the site. I'm sure my neighbours would love to build what they like, but they can't, it's the law and why do they think they're above it. They had plenty of warnings and pelted police with missiles and shouted abuse, end of.
I’ve been at the pub far too long to make a coherent argument so for now i’ll just say FUCK OFF YOU BIGOT..but i will actully make a post about this tomorrow
Released Israeli soldier says he would be “very happy” if all Palestinian prisoners still held by Israel could be freed.
Gilad Shalit, the Israeli soldier who was has been released as part of a swap deal with Hamas, has said he would be “very happy” if all Palestinian prisoners still held by Israel could be freed and return home.
Speaking to Egypt’s Nile TV, Shalit, who had been held in captivity for five years, said “I hope this deal will help the conclusion of a peace deal between the Israelis and Palestinians.”
Israel and Hamas agreed to Tuesday’s swap through Egyptian mediation that secured Shalit’s release in exchange for 1,027 Palestinian prisoners.
Shalit, who said he had been informed of his impending release one week ago, said: ”I hope co-operation and links between the two sides will be consolidated.”
The 25-year-old soldier, who appeared overwhelmed and faint, said that he had been treated well by his Hamas captors during the years he was held hostage.
“I’m very emotional. I haven’t seen people in a long time. I missed my family. I missed seeing people, and talking to them,” he said.
Israel caught ‘off guard’
Shalit was handed over to Egyptian authorities at the Rafah border crossing between Gaza and Egypt.
At the same time, groups of Palestinian prisoners were being sent by bus to Gaza via Rafah, where celebrations have begun.
Cal Perry, Al Jazeera’s correspondent in Jerusalem, said: “It is unclear whether the interview was planned” and the Israelis “seemed a little off guard by the pictures”.
Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, warned Shalit’s parents, Noam and Avi, that the video images of their son were about to air.
“No one was expecting to hear Shalit say anything,” Perry said.
