Wanker of the Week! #1: Recorder of Chester, Elgan Edwards

16 Aug

When Elgan Edwards sentenced Jordan Blackshaw and Perry Sutcliffe-Keenan to four years imprisonment each for supposedly inciting a riot via a Facebook page (ffs!!!) his motivations were 100% political. Edwards is one of the government’s pet judges; for this we award him our first ever WANKER OF THE WEEK!

Fuck Facebook, Join The Resistance!

22 Mar

The fuckwits at Facebook have bowed to the powers that be (as per usual) and pulled the plug on the Resist26 ‘Stay 4 One Day’ event page…

STAY 4 ONE DAY IS NOT CANCELLED

Facebook have kindly cancelled the facebook events (Stay 4 One Day, Seed Drop etc) not to mention accounts that were linked to the events. Apparently we aren’t allowed our own facebook revolution (too many paid advertisers in the west) 😀

Please help us get the word out by posting on your blogs, tweeting and changing your facebook status to the following in solidarity!

“PLS SPREAD! Hyde Park Occupation is still on, cops closed FB event and accounts. More information http://www.resist26.org

Facebook’s actions should come as no surprise to anyone. Social networking is a powerful communications tool, but that also makes it a powerful marketing tool. Although corporations like to be associated with ideas like liberty, individuality, creativity and freedom in their ad campaigns, they have a vested interest in keeping wealth and power in the hands of an elite few – and in keeping you a slave to the money machine. Facebook is like any other corporation, the only freedom it offers is freedom to consume. But all that time you spend consuming – or updating your Facebook status 😉 – is life itself.  As the Angry Brigade famously said:

“If you’re not busy being born, you’re busy buying.”

All the sales girls in the flash boutiques are made to dress the same and have the same make-up, representing the 1940’s. In fashion as in everything else, capitalism can only go backwards — they’ve nowhere to go — they’re dead.

The future is ours.

Life is so boring there is nothing to do except spend all our wages on the latest skirt or shirt.

Brothers and Sisters, what are your real desires?

Sit in the drugstore, look distant, empty, bored, drinking some tasteless coffee? Or perhaps BLOW IT UP OR BURN IT DOWN. The only thing you can do with modern slave-houses — called boutiques — IS WRECK THEM. You can’t reform profit capitalism and inhumanity. Just kick it till it breaks.

Revolution.
