Why is Youtube Censoring Police Brutality

27 Mar

As many who read my blog will know Greg Thornton was a victim of Police Brutality, when he tried to fight this in court through a civil suit the Judge went against evidence including video evidence and not only ruled on behalf of the police despite the problematic nature of the testimony from Police but also ruled that it is up to the police to choose what sort of violence they feel that they can use which is quite dangerous. To pour salt in the wound Waterloo Regional Police has now taken down the video of them beating up Thronton and is now threatening him to shut up. This sort of thuggish behavior of castigating thevictim and then silencing him is everything that is wrong with police here today. Take a stand and lets make this shit go viral.   This link is the letter sent to Greg By Waterllo Regional Police     im3511_20150327_210606   This is the video that was removed from youtube and that the police is trying to silence.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W1xzYC5T4Ro

#JFTC2 Campaign in Southern Ontario kicks off with British Consulate shutdown

26 Mar

Today a small but dedicated group of members of ACWG started the #JFTC2 Campaign of intensification here by shutting down the British consulate in Toronto. This action was carried out despite heightened security measures by the British consulate aimed at stopping people from protesting intensified criminalization of Irish Republicans by the British state. At The consulate a banner was unfurled with the msg #JFTC2 and people tried to get through to consulate people who promised that someone from the Consulate would meet with them. Instead security came and removed them from the building uttering empty threats of future arrests and such. Flyers were then handed out outside the consulate which were well received by pedestrians despite more empty rhetoric from security which was trying to say that they own the sidewalk or some crap. These heightened security featrures do not stop us from getting our msg out nor from taking peaceful political action in regards to the consulate but rather are inconveniencing the people whom they claim to help those seeking consular services. As the representatives of the crown here they have an obligation to address concerns of people here about the crimes they are committing in the North of Ireland. If they choose to answer dialogue with force here it only demonstrates the type of state that they are.

International Dept. 32CSM Statement at Community Open Forum – A Tribute to Ferguson

22 Mar

Yesterday their was a discussion and forum on the significance of Ferguson,racism and policing. In context of this discussion the issue of PAVIS and TAVIS were raised as part and parcel of the institutional racism of the police in the present society. Given the fact that the PAVIS model of so called community policing originates in The North of Ireland as a counterinsurgency model these are the thoughts they put forward

Community policing is a mask that is used by those in power to intimidate, frighten and confuse the very communities they claim to be protecting. They identified venerable people and turn them into informers through threat fear or bribery they also run the drug dealers house robbers and car thieves to keep the community frightened to stand up and fight back. By making the community feel powerless and hopeless the ruling class feel confident that they can get away with anything ,be it midnight house raids assaulting women and children, using lies and fabricated evidence to remand people into prison, this is all designed to send the message to people not to get involved in trying to improve your areas or challenging the status quo.

Hands off Venezuela

20 Mar

Today in Toronto people took to the streets to denounce recent attacks on Venezuela lead by Obama and the United Snakes Of America. People marched outside the Venezuelan Consulate to show support for Maduro and to demand that the Canadian State not interfere in the sovereign affairs of Venezuela. This was followed by speeches from members of The Hugo Chavez Peoples Defense Front, Toronto Forum on Cuba and the Anti Colonialist Working Group. Revolutionary greeting were also conveyed from the International Department of our comrades abroad the 32CSM. Particular attention was payed to the role of Canada and the so called great britain in assisting aiding and abetting the oppositions terror campaign which climaxed with the attempted coup against the democratically elected government of Maduro. The issue of Possada Carriles, a anti Cuban terrorist whom the US is harboring and refusing to extradite to Venezuela to stand trial was also raised as an example of how it is the US that is a threat to the southern hemisphere and not the ALBA nations. The demonstration ended with commitment from the people to continue to stand and up defend Venezuela’s right to be on a principled basis.
