Reply to the Evening standards claim we are a Sewer Camp

The evening standard claims that the camp is a sewer,a small amount of rubbish and that is binned and collected regularly and some dryed grass,we have requested temporary toilets on numerous occasions.
What is this compared to what one UN official said about Baghdad affected by the pre war sanctions that it was an 'open sewer', due to not being able to get parts for water treatment plants.This was before the mass destruction of the illegal invasion.

They do not like the landless and homeless the dispossessed of westminster and london camped visibly in front of politicians, as well as peace campaigners against an illegal war for resources.If they do not like it then maybe they should not support illegal invasions into other countries to grab oil and gas for the corporate multinationals.Unnecesary wars when we could be using clean renewable and infinite energy sources.
Maybe they could give the homeless/landless/disposessed some of the million empty buildings in the UK. Or provide some of the 75% of the land owned by 5% of the population to be turned into sustainable eco villages and projects.Or should we just empower ourselves to Reclaim these spaces and share them out to create a sustainable future.We want Land and spaces for homes and eco villages/projects,Freedom, giving our civil liberties back and a sustainable Future for all.

The real reason for the war in Afghanistan is the Unocal gas pipeline that was threatened on the Taliban back in 2001. A carpet of gold or a carpet of bombs was threatened by U.S. officials when they flew a delegation of the Taliban to Texas in August 2001 (before 9-11).

Boris and co ,Malcolm Rifkind and the editor of the evening standard claim it is an eyesore, to this we say look at the picture of a depleted uranium baby with eyes slipped across the face and grossly swollen hands and feet, this is the most grotesque eyesore known to man.
Time to wake up and stop these illegal wars through non violent action,civil disobedience and non co-operation with a government that continues to ignore the majority of its population who want an end to the war and the troops to come home, Peace.

Check our websites or or democracyvillage facebook for future mass civil disobedience and non co-operation actions and also for the pictures of depleted uranium babies soon.Follow this link for images of depleted uranium babies if u dare or care then take action.
Hard images to stomach but the reality for many Iraqi mothers facing this low level nuclear radiation across their land and water supplies. campaign against depleted uranium.
What we need is Peace and reconciliation, and to start to rebuild a sustainable future for all.
We do not need to fight over dwindling energy resources when there is a near infinite supply of energy available through renewable resources,time to open our eyes into the potential of a sustainable 21st century.

Peaceniks Piknik - Garden Party in Parliament Square Gardens

This is an invite to the Peaceniks Piknik on Wednesday 14th July at 7pm at Democracy Village, Parliament Square Gardens.

We'll be serving tea and cakes, providing some entertainment form local street performers and perhaps a couple of special guests and discussing the way forwards for the Peace, Justice and Freedom movement that's been occupying this important space in the heart of Westmonster.

If you've got some special talents to share, or know someone who has, please come and do a turn for the gathering.

Otherwise, feel free to bring some food and (non-alcoholic) drink of your own, a friend or two and some bright ideas on how we can move forwards in bringing Peace, Love and Unity to our benighted land.

The Democracy Village occupation in Parliament Square (see SchNEWS 728) had a High Court ruling against them on Tuesday (29th) to vacate by 4pm today (2nd). However, minutes before, solicitors for the village managed to lodge an appeal, giving a reprieve for a fortnight.

They’re appealing on grounds that the ownership of the land is far from clear-cut - and the judge had bent the law to give Boris Johnson and the GLA the right to evict.

The camp are launching Operation Rolling Thunder, an ongoing programme of non-violent direct action. They want people to come and do their own actions, to help with the site, keep it tidy and maintain the gardens.

After the appeal was lodged, the village – surrounded by press – took the protest off the square later in the afternoon and moved towards parliament. Two managed to climb onto the lawns at the front of the Houses of Common, and managed to stay for 20 minutes before being nicked. Meanwhile a group of about 40 – and these numbers were more than doubled by participating tourists, as well as press, spilled out onto the road and blocked the road outside the Commons for up to an hour.

The protesters then left and moved up towards Downing St. Whitehall was blocked for 15 minutes leading to eleven arrests for obstruction.

Further civil disobedience is planned – and all are welcome to get involved. Those with experience in direct action are particularly welcome.
