People we are supposed to live in a democracy!
In a democracy people have the right to SAY NO WITHOUT FEAR!!
There actually should be NO NEED TO DEMONSTRATE in a TRUE DEMOCRACY, because the people would be the highest executive ,therefore if any policy was unpopular it would be petitioned against and a referendum held on whether we accept it or not.
IN A TRUE DEMOCRACY THERE IS NO NEED TO FIGHT IN THE STREETS WITH STATE PAID THUGS!!!
WE LIVE IN AN ELECTED DICTATORSHIP!! SAY NO AT YOUR PERIL!!
THE SPAINISH POLICE STATE THUGS HAVE ATTACKED PEACEFUL PROTESTORS!!
There has been no trouble or violence in the peace camp …….until the police showed up!! A recurring theme in modern protest demonstrations. They ,the police , will often murder a protestor in cold blood!!
HERE IS THE PEACE PROTEST MANIFESTO!
Manifesto in English
WHO ARE WE?
We are individuals who have come together freely and voluntarily. Each of us has decided, after the concentrations on Sunday, May 15, that we are determined to continue fighting for dignity and political and social awareness.
We do not represent any political party or association.
We are joined by the singular cause of change.
We are brought together by integrity and solidarity with those who are unable to join us.
WHY ARE WE HERE?
We are here because we desire a new society that puts lives above political and economic interests. We demand a change in society and an increase in social awareness. We are here to make it known that the people have not fallen asleep, and we will continue fighting…peacefully.
We send our support to the friends that have been detained for participation in these concentrations, and we demand their immediate release with no criminal charges.
We want all of this, and we want it now. If you are with us, come join us.
“Better to risk and lose than to lose without having risked at all.”

A VERY REASONABLE MANIFESTO. BASICALLY A REQUEST FOR A DIRECT DEMOCRACY SYSTEM
Direct democracy, classically termed pure democracy, is a form of democracy and a theory of civics in which sovereignty is lodged in the assembly of all citizens who choose to participate. Depending on the particular system, this assembly might pass executive motions, make laws, elect or dismiss officials, and conduct trials. Direct democracy stands in contrast to representative democracy, (UK, EU USA system)where sovereignty is exercised by a subset of the people, usually on the basis of election.(our subset of the people , all have the same financial backers, and are therefore a one-party-system of elected dictatorship)
THIS IS THE SAME SYSTEM SWITZERLAND AND ICELAND USE. IT HAS PROVIDED THE HIGHEST LIVING STANDARDS AND LEAST CRIME AND CORRUPTION IN EUROPE. IN ICELAND ,THANKS TO DIRECT DEMOCRACY , THE ICELANDICS ARRESTED THIER FRAUDULANT BANKERS AND EVEN THIER PRIME MINISTER FOR HIS PART IN THE BANKERS CRIMES.
DIRECT DEMOCRACY IS A VERY REASONABLE AND SENSIBLE REQUEST!
UNFORTUNATELY THIS WOULD MEAN A LOSS OF POWER FOR POLITIONS AND BANKERS
SO …….THE ELECTED DICTATORSHIPS RESPONSE?
TALKS? MAYBE A MOVE TO A DIRECT DEMOCRACY SYSTEM?
RUBBER BULLETS AND BLUNT INSTRUMENTS. A BOOT TO THE GROIN AND A BATTON TO THE FACE. ENJOY YOUR FREEDOM AND DEMOCRACY PEASANTS….AND REMEMBER TO PAY YOUR TAXES!!…………AND REMEMBER YOU WILL BE BLAMED!!!….HOW DARE YOU QUESTION YOUR FREEDOM AND YOUR DICTATORS
Spanish police fire at peaceful protesters in Barcelona
by Jérôme E. Roos on May 27, 2011
Police just cleared the protest camp on the Plaça de Catalunya in Barcelona, firing rubber bullets at protesters and hitting indiscriminately (videos here!).
NOTE: I just published another article: Why the police violence in Barcelona was a big mistake.
Information is still sketchy (if you’re in Barcelona, please give us an update!) but it appears that riot police have just cleared the peaceful protest camp at Plaça de Catalunya in Barcelona with force.
At least 43 are reported to have been treated for injuries, although actual numbers are likely to be higher.
Video footage shows police beating away indiscriminately at protesters sitting on the ground. Reports say police even fired rubber bullets to disperse a small group of protesters that peacefully resisted eviction.
The Barcelona camp has been the second biggest in Spain, after the Puerta del Sol in Madrid, and had been occupied ever since the national protests on May 15th. Just yesterday, we shared a short documentary that showed the good-natured spirits of the peaceful protest camp.
Check out the videos below (NOTE: one of the most shocking videos cannot be embedded, but can be seen here):

Censorship in the UK
Just last week, YouTube complied with the British government by censoring a video containing a protest against an apparent legal injustice.
group of British citizens attempted to carry out a civil arrest of Judge Michael Peake for his stance against Roger Hayes, who refused to pay council tax both as “a protest against the government’s treasonous activities in sacrificing Britain to globalist interests and as a result of Hayes clearly proving that council tax is illegal.” A video containing the attempted arrest was uploaded March of this year. That video is now unable to be viewed from inside the UK.
Along with Facebook’s recent mass deletion of UK activist groups, this proves that networks once marvelled for their freedom of expression are quickly being coerced by those in power. Watch the censored video here. Instructions on how to watch it from the UK are included in the article link
YOUR DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENT REPRESENTATIVE HATES FREEDOM AND DEMOCRACY!!
LOOK AT THIER ACTIONS ,DO NOT LISTEN TO THIER WORDS ,
THEY ARE LIARS ,WHAT DO YOU EXPECT TO HEAR BUT LIES?!?!?!
THE EU GOVERNMENT IS LESS ETHICAL THAN WAL MART !!!
THIS BRUTAL RESPONSE IS NOT UNUSUAL …IN FACT ITS THE NORMAL RESPONSE …….THE EU FASCIST POLICE STATE IN ACTION
THE EU MILITARY JUNTA IN ACTION, ILLEGAL WAR NO.4 LIBYA
“War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe,as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people.Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses.”
I spent 33 years (in the Marines)…most of my time being a high-class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism…
General Smedley Butler
I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, only as one who has seen its brutality, its stupidity.
Excerpt from “The Chance for Peace Address,” April 16, 1953:
Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.
This world in arms is not spending money alone.
It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. It is two electric power plants, each serving a town of 60,000 population. It is two fine, fully equipped hospitals. It is some fifty miles of concrete pavement. We pay for a single fighter plane with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people.
This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron.
THE WAR IN LIBYA IS BASED ON LIES…BUT SO WHERE THE LAST 3 ILLEGAL EU/NATO/US WARS!!!
They planned this along time ago and with the recent unrest and revolutions happening in north Africa and the middle east Former General Wesley Clark of the U.S. Army talks openly about the memo he saw when Bush was president
THE NATO/US ILLEGAL WAR IN LIBYA HAS CREATED A HUMANITARIAN CRISIS ,NOT STOPPED ONE!!
Libyan War: Humanitarian Disaster, West Getting Bogged Down In Africa
BEIJING: With no end in sight the situation is turning into a humanitarian disaster with far-reaching consequences.
The UN says it’s alarmed by the looming humanitarian crisis in Libya. Officials warn food supply lines have been disrupted and over three hundred thousand refugees have already fled the country. Nigel Farage, MEP and leader of the UK Independence Party, believes the whole military strategy in Libya has not been thought through

NO EVIDENCE OF GADDAFI VIOLENCE AGAINST HIS PEOPLE!
British Mission to Libya: “No Evidence of Gaddafi Violence”
by Tom Rayner
The Libyan government has renewed its call for independent fact-finding experts to come to the country to assess allegations of violence against civilians.
Speaking to Sky News, deputy foreign minister Khalid Kaim said: “We are asking for professional fact-finding missions.
It also follows the surprise finding of a British campaign group who claimed they had seen ‘no evidence’ that Colonel Gaddafi’s forces had attacked, bombed or killed any civilians in western Libya, despite widespread condemnation of the regime from organisations such as the UN, the African Court of Human Rights and the International Criminal Court.
THERE IS EVIDENCE THAT NATO/US FORCES HAVE BEEN USING ILLEGAL WEAPONS AND COMMITTING WAR CRIMES!!
Cluster Bombing of Misrata Committed by US Naval Forces, Not Qadhafi
by Human Rights Investigations (HRI)
THE REAL REASONS WE ARE AT WAR WITH GADDAFI?
Gaddafi ran a secular socialist direct democracy country. It had the highest living standards in Africa , it used to be the poorest nation on Earth before Gaddafi, but also had the biggest US naval base in the Mediterrainian.
March 02, 2011 “Pravda” — How can you call someone a dictator leader who overthrew a corrupt monarchy, modernized the country, won the highest HDI in Africa, and applied a direct democracy system of government?
Libya is the country with the highest HDI in Africa. Therefore, the best distribution of income, and health and public education are free. And almost 10% of Libyan students receive scholarships to study in foreign countries.

THE REAL REASON FOR WAR IN LYBIA
The Lies Behind the West’s War on Libya
By Jean-Paul Pougala
African Monetary Fund, African Central Bank, African Investment Bank
The US$30 billion frozen by Mr Obama belong to the Libyan Central Bank and had been earmarked as the Libyan contribution to three key projects which would add the finishing touches to the African federation – the African
Investment Bank in Syrte, Libya, the establishment in 2011 of the African Monetary Fund to be based in Yaounde with a US$42 billion capital fund and the Abuja-based African Central Bank in Nigeria which when it starts printing African money will ring the death knell for the CFA franc through which Paris has been able to maintain its hold on some African countries for the last fifty years. It is easy to understand the French wrath against Gaddafi.
The African Monetary Fund is expected to totally supplant the African activities of the International Monetary Fund which, with only US$25 billion, was able to bring an entire continent to its knees and make it swallow questionable privatisation like forcing African countries to move from public to private monopolies. No surprise then that on 16-17 December 2010, the Africans unanimously rejected attempts by Western countries to join the African Monetary Fund, saying it was open only to African nations. The USA alone, has a staggering debt of $US14,000 billion, France, Great Britain and Italy each have a US$2,000 billion public deficit compared to less than US$400 billion in public debt for 46 African countries combined.
Inciting spurious wars in Africa in the hope that this will revitalise their economies which are sinking ever more into the doldrums will ultimately hasten the western decline
Financial Heist of the Century: Confiscating Libya’s Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWF)
by Manlio Dinucci
The objective of the war against Libya is not just its oil reserves (now estimated at 60 billion barrels), which are the greatest in Africa and whose extraction costs are among the lowest in the world, nor the natural gas reserves of which are estimated at about 1,500 billion cubic meters. In the crosshairs of “willing” of the operation “Unified Protector” there are sovereign wealth funds, capital that the Libyan state has invested abroad.
The Libyan Investment Authority (LIA) manages sovereign wealth funds estimated at about $70 billion U.S., rising to more than $150 billion if you include foreign investments of the Central Bank and other bodies. But it might be more. Even if they are lower than those of Saudi Arabia or Kuwait, Libyan sovereign wealth funds have been characterized by their rapid growth. When LIA was established in 2006, it had $40 billion at its disposal. In just five years, LIA has invested over one hundred companies in North Africa, Asia, Europe, the U.S. and South America: holding, banking, real estate, industries, oil companies and others.The management of sovereign funds has however created a new mechanism of power and corruption in the hands of ministers and senior officials, which probably in part escaped the control of the Gadhafi himself: This is confirmed by the fact that, in 2009, he proposed that the 30 billion in oil revenues go “directly to the Libyan people.” This aggravated the fractures within the Libyan government.
U.S. and European ruling circles focused on these funds, so that before carrying out a military attack on Libya to get their hands on its energy wealth, they took over the Libyan sovereign wealth funds. Facilitating this operation is the representative of the Libyan Investment Authority, Mohamed Layas himself: as revealed in a cable published by WikiLeaks. On January 20 Layas informed the U.S. ambassador in Tripoli that LIA had deposited $32 billion in U.S. banks. Five weeks later, on February 28, the U.S. Treasury “froze” these accounts. According to official statements, this is “the largest sum ever blocked in the United States,” which Washington held “in trust for the future of Libya.” It will in fact serve as an injection of capital into the U.S. economy, which is more and more in debt. A few days later, the EU “froze” around 45 billion Euros of Libyan funds.
Libya: Another Neocon War
by David Swanson
THIS WAR IS ONLY CONTINUING BECAUSE WE WANT OR EVEN NEED TO CONTINUE IT……..WE COULD SOLVE THIS WITHOUT ANYMORE FIGHTING RIGHT NOW!!
THE US IS SUPPORTTING ISLAMIC TERRORISTS IN LIBYA, NOT FOR THE FIRST TIME.IT IS IN FACT THE SAME ISLAMIC TERRORISTS WE SLAUGHTER WITH GLEE IN AFGHANISTAN AND IRAQ .ALL PART OF DEFENDING FREEDOM AND DEMOCRACY….

SO WHO REALLY WANTS THIS WAR….IT IS A WESTERN POWER BLOCK WAR……WE ARE SUPPORTTING THE BAD GUYS..
US Rejects Libya Ceasefire, Vows War Will Continue
Gadhafi Regime Reiterates Support for AU ‘Road Map’
by Jason Ditz, May 27, 2011
White House deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes said the US was absolutely opposed to the ceasefire because the Gadhafi-led government is “not complying with UN demands.”
Libyan Prime Minister Baghdadi Ali Mahmoudi insisted that the offer was sincere and that Libya is “serious about a ceasefire.” He said the offer was to be based on an African Union road map for peace in the nation, which Libyan officials endorsed previously.
BUT THE AFRICAN UNION THINKS ITS THE US THAT IS “NOT COMPLYING WITH UN DEMANDS” AND ITS THE REBELS(US ASSETS) THAT WANT TO CONTINUE FIGHTING ,BECAUSE THEY DO NOT WANT A DEMOCRATIC VOTE TO RESOLVE THIS WAR!!! THEREFORE THEY ARE NOT DEMOCRATIC!!
African Union Calls for End to NATO Strikes on Libya
Alliance Says NATO Strikes Go Beyond UN Mandate
by Jason Ditz, May 27, 2011
The AU Peace and Security Commissioner insisted that the strikes are going far beyond the UN mandate
The African Union had previously tried to broker a transition deal in Libya which would lead to free elections and the ouster of Moammar Gadhafi. The Gadhafi regime even endorsed the deal, but it was halted by rebel opposition, stemming from the belief that NATO would eventually help them win the war without a negotiated settlement
BUT THEN NO DIFFERENT FROM THE PREVIOUS 3 ILLEGAL WARS. ALL STARTED BY REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRATIC POLITICAL LIARS!!!
YUGOSLAVIA -WAR TO ASSET STRIP A SUCCESSFUL SOCIALIST COUNTRY! WAR STARTED BY WESTERN POLITICAL LIES!
AFGHANISTAN- WAR STARTED TO STOP IT BECOMING A SUCCESSFUL SOCIALIST COUNTRY. LATER A GREAT TRAINING GROUND FOR CIA/ISLAMIC TERRORISTS, DRUG RUNNING AND OIL!
IRAQ- A WAR TO DESTROY ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL SECULAR SOCIALIST COUNTRY AND TURN IT INTO A DYSFUNCTIONAL ISLAMIC STATE!
ALL GOVERNMENTS ARE CORRUPT
DO YOU REALLY WANT THESES SORT OF PEOPLE HAVING INFLUENCE OVER YOUR LIFE? THEY ARE A MIXTURE OF SEXUAL PERVERTS , THIEVES , FRAUDSTERS, MASS MURDERERS AND MEGALONMANIACS…THE REST ARE JUST STUPID OR WINDOW DRESSING
START ILLEGAL WARS , CREATE MASSIVE DEBTS , LIE ABOUT EVERYTHING , BEAT ANYONE WHO PRTESTS, REDUCE LIVING STANDARDS AND INCREASE CRIME AND CORRUPTION BY PROTECTING THE GUILTY PAEDOPHILES , FRAUDSTERS AND WAR CRIMINALS……..THE UK HAS NOT BEEN GOVERNED BY A NON-WAR CRIMINAL SINCE 1978 WHEN JIM CALLAHAN WAS IN POWER. SINCE THEN ITS BEEN WAR CRIMINALS RUNNING THE UK ……MAKES YOU PROUD DOESN’T IT?
HOW COULD ANYONE SUPPORT SUCH AN INSANE ,UNDEMOCRATIC ,CHILD RAPING ,BLOOD DRENCHED , CORRUPT ,WAR MONGERING SYSTEM?
