First Ever INTERNATIONAL RIOT & LOOTING DAY: 1/5/2012

6 Feb

This one was created in support of all those kids who were arrested and/or banged-up just for posting comments about the riots on social network sites… it is also intended as a big ‘FUCK YOU’ to fascist though-police wankers like Dick-tective Rich Henson. It’s obviously tongue-(slightly)-in-cheek, but the authorities have already proven that they’re a bunch of humorless bastards – so if there happens to be a riot on May 1st we might have to go offline for a bit 😉

FIRST THEY CAME FOR THE FACEBOOK KIDS………….

17 Aug

Ian Bone wrote the following and we think he’s got a point…

 “I think we should start rioting, it’s about time we stopped the authorities pushing us about and ruining this country.

“It’s about time we stood up for ourselves for once. So come on rioters – get some. LOL.”

This is an absolute attack on free speech. The 17 year old lives in a small village near Bury St.Edmunds.There is nothing specific in his facebook post to any area – it’s a general statement. He’s been given a curfew, youth rehabiitation order and god knows what else. He’d even deleted it so it ws only up for a short  time.The weekend before last Nik Cohen posted in The Observer ‘Why are there no riots here’ – why aint he been done. Or a thousand pieces you could read in broadsheets giving opinions or on leftie blogs like this. Why pick on teenagers? So you the cops and CPS can impres with their ‘robust’ approach. This prosecution is worse than the other one because it’s a general statement of opinion by no mean a specific incitement. If a kid in Syria had posted this he’d be hailed a hero. It’s now a crime here to say ‘I think we should start rioting’.  I think we need a lot of people who write and blog to stand up now and be counted on this one. Maybe some mass signed statement – maybe all put our names to what this kid has said and wait for the knock at the door. First they came for the 17 year old Facebookers.The WITCHFINDER GENERAL was about in the area of Bury St.Edmunds. Now in the midst of RIOT HYSTERIA he’s back.

***** Please spread far and wide.

Go on, what are you waiting for? WE ARE ALL FACEBOOK KIDS!!!

END GANG VIOLENCE: the flyer

15 Aug

After this comment on Ian Bone’s blog

The ‘Stop the looters’ black & white, photocopy friendly version comes out a treat- if you copy and paste it onto an A4 word document, you get handy A5 flyers-printed a fuck load at work- will quietly distribute to local building sites, supermarket newspaper stands, jobcentre, local library, post boxes…any other suggestions?

We thought we’d make the job easier by producing an A5 flyer (2 x each A4 print)…

EVICT THE RICH!

13 Aug

This reworking of an old favourite was inspired by Wandsworth Council’s decision to inflict illegal collective punishment on the families of suspected rioters just so they can quicken the ongoing social cleansing of the area.

More thoughts on the matter here.

Children of Britain, Know Your Place: BORN POOR, DIE POOR

11 Aug

Since the riots poor kids have been called ‘feral’, ‘scum’, ‘vermin’, ‘thugs’, ‘chavs’, ‘rats’, ‘apes’, ‘idiots’, ‘sickos’, etc., etc., by a diverse, but relatively wealthy cross-section of society which includes many millionaire MPs and media pundits.

Since the riots the parents of poor kids have been called ‘morons’, ‘wasters’, ‘scroungers’, ‘ignoramuses’, ‘careless parents’, ‘absentee-fathers’, ‘layabouts’, ‘feckless’, ‘criminal minded’, etc., etc., by a diverse, but relatively wealthy cross-section of society which includes many millionaire MPs and media pundits.

Before the riots poor kids were called ‘feral’, ‘scum’, ‘vermin’, ‘thugs’, ‘chavs’, ‘rats’, ‘apes’, ‘idiots’, ‘sickos’, etc., etc., by a diverse, but relatively wealthy cross-section of society which included many millionaire MPs and media pundits.

So the simple message (which the poor were obviously too stupid to understand…) is that if your poor then it must be your own fault and not a consequence of living in a rigged society which is one of the most blatantly unequal in Europe… if not the world. It’s your own fault that youth unemployment rates are the highest ever recorded. It’s your own fault that a third of UK children grow up in poverty and that the services designed to help alleviate that poverty are being destroyed to help pay for the banker’s financial fuck ups.

If you’re BORN POOR in modern Britain it’s extremely likely that you will DIE POOR, so get over it and stop rioting.

In the meantime the BBC will keep on creating expensive productions of classic Dickens’ stories while it’s news/propaganda wing ignores the fact that we’ve returned to Victorian levels of inequality.
