The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves – Spain Officially Becomes a Police State

The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves – Spain Officially Becomes a Police State

 Screen Shot 2015-07-13 at 11.32.48 AM

On July 1st, 2015, Spain officially became a police state. There’s simply no other way to put it. The “gag law” passed late last year went into effect on that date, and if you still have any doubt about how extreme and oppressive these laws are, let’s take a quick look at a summary published by The Local:

1) Fines for protesting

Under the new law, anyone who organizes or takes part in an “unauthorized protest” could be fined between €30,000 and €600,000 if the protest takes part near institutions such as the Spanish parliament.

 

 

2) Distrupting public events

Disrupting events such as public speeches, sports events or religious ceremonies could face fines of between €600 and €300,000.

3) Botellón

The Spanish tradition of getting together with mates for outdoor drinking sessions looks to be officially over – drinking in public will be hit with fines of €600 under the new law. And teenagers won’t escape – Parents will be held responsible for the payment of their offsprings’ fines.

4) Social media activism

Using Twitter, Facebook or Instagram to call on people to protest will be fined under the new law, an attempt to put paid to the spontaneous protests that have proved very powerful in building the indignado movement.

5) Photographing police

People will be fined for taking unauthorized photographs of the police, a measure introduced with the argument that being publically identified could put officers and their families in danger.

You cannot beat respect into someone-expect it to remain organically for a happy futuristic society!

Are the Spanish Police being used as some inquisitorial vengeance against the common population to dare question today’s draconian infrastructure’s authority?

It is a damnable atrocity towards any form of social democracy, against communities, nation states to inflict violent aggression to maintain social order.

Police States are evil with intense brilliancy of placing fear into the hearts and minds of people, that is mostly innately decent people.

I see democracy hanging on by a mere thread in most places where democracy is claimed to be exercised.

If enough people get involved, you’ll maybe get a form of democratic systems play, otherwise draconian loss of rights enshrined into law, the police, the authority will do its best with crushing dominance to silence and disempower.

Police are wrong to smash, obliterate freedoms, pulverising the mind sets of those wishing to speak out against government, as democracy dictates too.

We cannot stand the stance of tolerance towards being threatened with a severe beating by police officers because psychopathic elites fear public uprising.

We should not live in fear against such brutality and harsh punishing state rules.

May 27 will be the first National Switch Off Day

Take action against Tories’ harmful policies by hitting them in the wallet

Sunday 24th May 2015 at 10:06 By David Icke

‘People across the country will be taking part in a different kind of protest – on the day of the state opening of Parliament.

May 27 will be the first National Switch Off Day, when thousands of people have already pledged to stop using gas and electricity, and stop shopping in non-local shops for 24 hours.

Organised by a varied group of campaigners, this will be the first in a series of multi-issue actions that will take place once a month. Reasons for taking part range from keeping the NHS public and tackling issues like overpriced parking in hospitals, to stopping benefit cuts, to issues affecting vulnerable people and their carers such as the cold weather benefits to the elderly, to keeping the Human Rights Act, to stopping fracking – and mostly that all members of the general public get a voice in matters that concern them.’

Anti-Tory protesters are met with police violence

Street Democracy writes:

We’re being ‘forcibly severed’ from main stream opinion, all political avenues and society to stand in splendid isolation.

We watch a ‘ferocious silencing’ of voice and reason to satisfy ruling elites whose fanatic commitment towards making vindictive policies of oppression to disempower us.

noam-chomskys-quotes-1

Protesters met with frownful scorn, by a militarised policing who seem, frantically enraged by the protesters presence to critique and peacefully demonstrate their civil rights.

Our political and corporate superiors however, fear this and is the reason why are police are militarised, in order to annihilate ordinary strength met within the streets of democracy.

We are convulsed by indescribable frustration as we listen to the Tory elites intellect of pure ‘sounds of insanity’ aswell as a sense of ravenous fear of the public. So they hide behind an ever impending police state.52c68-76936_325017874280597_1346133833_n

Displayed as evil in print, policies to deliberately herd and suppress, forces protesters into uniting as innately decent people should against tyrants.

Yet, this is deemed criminal, by over zealous police dressed for civil war, people have to be brave now to protest.

The criminalization of protesting, is the silencing of dissent, and the shutting down of democracy.  It is the fuelling of discontent and closure of all dialogues of reason.2182a-971022_267085910101343_1969177191_n2b1

We’re met by a commanding language of force by a fierce presentation, expedition and an evil confrontation, while our voices and point of being are taken over with self-protection of police brutality.

It is a forced intimacy of unapologetic methods to destroy critical thinking with fear. A warrantless invasion into the lives with a legal mass rampage to destroy people power in one hit.

Mass arrests and violence reported as police respond to first demonstrations against the new government


POLICE violence and mass arrests marked the first weekend of the new Tory government as thousands of young people took to the streets to voice their anger over further austerity measures.

Despite having been called just days before Thursday’s elections, the Fuck the Tory Government protest saw over 2,000 people march on Downing Street.

But the peaceful protest turned sour when, after three hours of causing havoc with central London’s traffic, protesters and police clashed on Whitehall in scenes reminiscent of the 2010 student movement.

The Metropolitan Police confirmed that 15 people had been arrested, with several protesters reporting excessive use of violence by the police.

LSE student Daphne Wikken said: “I have never experienced such extreme force of police violence. “My legs are bruised everywhere and I cut my arm.

Britain will be ‘forced’ by Brussels to accept Mediterranean migrants

Britain will be ‘forced’ by Brussels to accept Mediterranean migrants

new Monday 11th May 2015 at 10:14 By David Icke

‘Every country within the EU could be forced to accept a quota of refugees under highly controversial plans to be unveiled by Brussels this week.

Britain said it would refuse to accept the proposal by the European Commission to share the refugees and asylum seekers – who have arrived in their thousands in southern Italy in recent months – among the EU’s 28 member states.

The plan, driven by Jean-Claude Juncker, head of the European Commission, is “practically seen as a declaration of war”, one senior EU official said.’

Protesters and police face off at Downing Street gates as hundreds rally against new Tory government

Protesters and police face off at Downing Street gates as hundreds rally against new Tory government

Sunday 10th May 2015 at 09:11 By David Icke

‘Hundreds of protesters took to the streets to express their anger about the new Tory government.

The anti-Conservative protesters, some holding placards reading “I pledge to resist” and “Stop the cuts”, took part in the rally organised just a day into the new Parlimament.

It is believed to have started outside Conservative headquarters, where just over 24 hours ago Mr Cameron gave a speech to party activists about their unexpected win.

Much of the protest was peaceful, with many attending calling for the introduction of proportional representation after the election results on Friday.’

Benefit Reform “Shambles” Pushing Disabled People To Suicide, Says Whistleblower

Benefit Reform “Shambles” Pushing Disabled People To Suicide, Says Whistleblower

Sick and disabled claimants are experiencing severe distress and some are even close to suicide due to botched disability benefit reform, an insider has revealed.

Personal Independence Payments (PIP) are replacing Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for Britain’s sick and disabled, but the assessment process which should take no longer than 26 weeks is sometimes taking twice as long.

West Sussex is under threat. Fracking company Celtique Energie…SIGN PETITION!

West Sussex is under threat. Fracking company Celtique Energie has two applications to drill in and around the South Downs National Park. And this is just the start.

But the good news is that we’ve already managed to delay both applications through thousands of objections. And now a local anti-fracking group is calling for all of West Sussex to be declared Frack-Free.

The local residents’ group Keep Kirdford and Wisborough ‘Green’ have set up a petition on the council’s website. Please support them by adding your name.

Sign the petition for a Frack-Free West Sussex

West Sussex sits on shale rock formations, which could hold significant resources of shale oil. And fracking companies are keen to exploit these resources. But if drilling goes ahead, it could put more pressure on local water supplies, increase traffic in the local lanes and threaten protected wildlife, such as bats and songbirds. And that’s before we’ve even mentioned the impacts on climate change.

We have less than two weeks to gather 3,000 signatures from anyone who lives, works or studies in West Sussex. If we reach 3,000 names the County Council will have to debate the petition at full Cabinet.

Add your voice to the growing call to keep West Sussex Frack-Free

We’re already half way there. With just 1,500 more signatures, we can win a discussion about a Frack-Free West Sussex.

With hope and thanks,

Nikki and the fracking team

Peru now has a ‘licence to kill’ environmental protesters

Peru now has a ‘licence to kill’ environmental protesters

‘Some of the recent media coverage about the fact that more than 50 people in Peru – the vast majority of them indigenous – are on trial following protests and fatal conflict in the Amazon over five years ago missed a crucial point.

Yes, the hearings are finally going ahead and the charges are widely held to be trumped-up, but what about the government functionaries who apparently gave the riot police the order to attack the protestors, the police themselves, and – following Wikileaks’ revelations of cables in which the US ambassador in Lima criticized the Peruvian government’s “reluctance to use force” and wrote there could be “implications for the recently implemented Peru-US FTA” if the protests continued – the role of the US government?’
