London policing

One of the ways in which the police in repressive societies intimidate people is by turning up at protest meetings and taking pictures of them. What, then, are we supposed to make of this behaviour in London yesterday? Note that this is the same Metropolitan Police that did nothing about demonstrators who incited to violence in May 2005 and then only responded in February 2006 after a public outcry. Many thanks to Nordishblog.

As Tatchell speaks, note the policeman with the peaked hat tell the policeman with the baseball hat which citizen to photograph. Is this how we do policing in Britain?

Update 1: click on this link to see the pic, it is the 53rd picture down.

Update 2: A correspondent who must remain anonymous writes that "I also include photos of the cops who maintained a very intimidating presence, photographing everyone, including tourists and little old ladies. They were far more aggressive than at Islamist demos apparently."

The caption with this pic is "snapping a curious canadian tourist, female, around 70."

Here are the boys in blue again.

The correspondent writes: "an Iraqi named Ali who made a powerful brief speech in which he referred to the severe restrictions on freedom of speech under Saddam and the Taliban"
123_2329.JPG

Our correspondent writes that: "The people wearing danish flags were doing so because they were forbidden to wave them. I persuaded one of them... to wave it despite the ban -- the police moved in behind us so we eventually stopped."

The police intervened at one point. More details on my site and here, note the gentleman that they spoke to was Iranian.

One of the ways in which the police in repressive societies intimidate people is by turning up at protest meetings and taking pictures of them.

Then every democratic nation in the world must be repressive, as police always do this at every demonstration. As anyone who attended demonstrations would know.

Have you ever been to one before?

A represive society eliminates protesters. I was unaware that a camera was a lethal weapon.

Having lived in London, and on more than one occasion had the opportunity to witness various public events, I would postulate that there is a pickpocket working the back of the crowd, because there is always a pickpocket working the crowd in central London.

Pickpocket makes more sense...

Maybe (probably not, but maybe), they felt like they had to show up and video tape your demonstration because they show up for the islamist demonstrations. Wouldn't want to show favorites.

The people wearing flags around their shoulders were prevented from waving them because of an obscure byelaw, which prohibits the waving of foreign flags in Trafalgar Square, rather than anything particularly sinister.

I assume the byelaw has something to do with Trafalgar Square being a bit of a national symbol in itself. (Although it doesn't seem to affect the various national embassies dotted around Trafalgar Square - I guess, technically, they must be just 'off Trafalgar Sqaure').

Is he really a liberal? Partial liberal?

Clear thinking Ignatieff may be difficult for Rigid liberals to accept easily, yet correct thinking from Ignatieff may help us all see the need to stem this Fanatic fundamentalist Fascism.

Fascism?.. Yes, fascism. Paul Macrae clarifies this on page A8 of the March 27th Victoria Times Colonist.

If the West had ignored Chamberlain’s procrastinating and Roosevelt had joined with Churchill early on, before Hitler was fully organized, millions of lives may have been saved. The Pearl Harbour disaster would have been avoided too, as all hands would have been geared up and on full alert.

Allowing Nazism to run it’s course resulted in the loss of [55], fifty-five Million lives.!

Afghani-American Tamim Ansary , shortly after 9/11, wrote, When you think Taliban, think Nazi SS. When you think bin Laden, think HITLER. And, when you think of the people of Afghanistan, think of the Jews in concentration camps.

This is the way we need to think about fanatic Islamism, including Al-Qaeda and the Taliban.

Whatever the religious trappings, extremist Isamism is still a form of Fascism. As Ignatieff notes . *We can fight this Fascism now, or we can fight it later, when it is fully organized and stronger, but we do have to fight it, just as we had to in 1939. TG [Yes, 55 million lives.]

[Note.. I think the Stealth I.D. stealing Trojan perps are fascist too. Only a few anti-virus firms can detect it, otherwise everyone is exposed without a defense . There are only 5 firms who are ready.] Check :=
