#StopDSEI because…

…the arms trade fuels fascism.

Stop DSEI because the men, women and children who survived the weapons sold at DSEI are starving to death in Yemen, in Gaza and all over the world, so a tiny number of rich people can get richer.

Stop DSEI because the global arms trade maintains an unstable, unsafe and unfair world for profit.

Stop DSEI because those able to seek refuge from the conflicts fuelled by DSEI’s weapons are persecuted and exploited if they’re lucky, or they’re abandoned to rot in detention centres, to drown in the sea and worse.

Stop DSEI because the revolving door between UK Gov. Plc and the arms industry reveals the absolute depth of hypocrisy to which our democracy has sunk.

Stop DSEI because Government ministers brazenly giving keynote speeches at DSEI this year include International Trade Secretary Liam Fox, Defence Secretary Michael Fallon and Security Minister Ben Wallace.

These men will almost certainly pass back through the revolving door to lucrative careers in the euphemistically described ‘defence’ industry.

Stop DSEI because their wars are fuelling the ecological crisis, through the war machines’ insatiable addiction to toxic energy sources and the politicians’ fear of the petrodollar’s inevitable demise.

Stop DSEI because the weapons manufacturers and deep states should be focusing their combined energies on mitigating the unfolding climate collapse, rather than facilitating unnecessary conflicts in an increasingly unstable world.

Stop DSEI because it is simply wrong to make vast profits from the unnecessary and indiscriminate murder, torture, censorship, surveillance and suffering of others.

Stop DSEI because even though London Mayor, Sadiq Khan; incumbent PM and peace activist, Jeremy Corbyn; the only green voice in Parliament, Caroline Lucas and many other decent MPs deplore the arms trade, WE are the ones with the power to actually stop it from taking place.

Stop DSEI because there’s another madman in  the whitehouse, talking about thermonuclear armageddon while the world burns and floods.

Stop DSEI because we may not get another chance.

Stop DSEI because another world is possible.

Solidarity with everybody taking action to shut down this grotesque carnival of death and suffering.

Join the blockade and occupation to #StopDSEI setting up. 4th-11th September, London Docklands.

UK Government Sold Weapons to 22/30 Countries on Their Own Watchlist. Occupy the Arms Fair [meme]

OTAF2017_fedbookbanner

Since 2010, The UK Government has sold arms to 39 of the 51 countries ranked “not free” by Freedom House, and 22 of the 30 countries on their own human rights watch list.

otaf2017_humanrightsabusers
UK Gov. plc.’s own export statistics report shows that it’s principle customer is Saudi Arabia and it’s largest market (63%) is the middle east, where these weapons are escalating multiple deadly conflicts. Arms are free to cross borders, while refugees fleeing them are not.

DSEI (Defence & Security Equipment International) is the world’s largest arms fair, where arms buyers and sellers get together to network and make deals, profiting from the death and suffering their weapons cause worldwide.

Every two years since 2001, the DSEI arms fair has taken place at London’s Excel exhibition centre and the peace movement has mobilised to oppose them.

This year the arms dealers will once again be blockaded by a massive coalition of civil society, who are determined to shut them down.

Another world is possible.

The Asia-Pacific Defence and Security Exhibition (APDSE), the Australian equivalent of the British Defence and Security International (DSEI), has been scuppered three times, in 1991, 1986 and 2008.

Let’s make 2017 the year we finally turn this brutal industry the way of sustainable peace.

Join Occupy The Arms Fair‘s direct action camp to stop the DSEI arms fair.

Over 100 MPs From All Parties Unite to Condemn The Murdoch Problem.

anmbanner
107 MPs from all UK political parties are finally doing something about the Murdoch problem.

They’ve signed a scathing letter to The S*n’s editor, calling for the scalp of the journo who wrote their most recent incendiary, racist article. The article in question plumbed new depths for the S*n’s depravity and has been likened to nazi propaganda.

OS5in5The letter was organised by Naz Shah, the Labour MP for Bradford West and details precise examples of how the S*n’s increasingly racist content correlates with spikes in hate crimes.

It follows a joint complaint about the article to the press regulator, IPSO (the Independent Press Standards Organisation), issued by Jewish and Muslim organisations last week. IPSO have received a further 150 complaints about the article so far.

Given that IPSO are famously toothless and Murdoch is notoriously powerful, letter writing and complaining might appear like futile gesture politics at this point.

Here’s why I think it might not be just that.

Firstly and most broadly, gesture politics are not in and of themselves futile. They are a means to an end. An end to the beginning. Doors opening to new possibilities. Politicians from all parties, people of all faiths and none are uniting against racism and Murdochian propaganda. This marks yet another significant milestone in the struggle for real democracy.

During Occupy Democracy‘s occupations of Parliament Square in 2015-16, we heard from numerous ‘insiders’, including politicians and ex-politicians that they and their colleagues were terrified of the tabloids’ power to snoop, smear and blackmail. The corrupting influence of the media was then and is still now one of the fundamental pillars of corruption in Westminster’s Prostitute State and beyond. No politician would propose or support legislation to meaningfully reform the media, for fear that their character and career would be assassinated by the gutter press, such was the reputation of the billionaires behind the curtain.

Reforming and democratising media ownership became one of Occupy Democracy’s principle demands. During these occupations, some of us co-founded Occupy The Media Billionaires working group. One of the core objectives we set ourselves was to embolden and empower good politicians to end the tabloids’ stranglehold over our democracy.

Two years ago, a gesture like this letter from such a large number of the political classes seemed impossible.

The fact that the letter has cross-party support might also prove to be significant in terms of the progressive alliance for electoral reform, which continues to evolve backstage, regardless what the various party leaderships say. (Jeremy Corbyn’s signature was notably absent from the letter of condemnation, though he has warmly welcomed it’s contents).

Out of all the hatred and fear, does this cross-party political faction represent real hope?

dontletmurdochshitinyourheadMurdoch’s power and influence is not to be underestimated. His empire is vast. We must not be complacent or naive, but we should certainly celebrate the victories when they come. We can also celebrate (but not overstate) the fact that newscorp suffered another loss of £629m (2%) in the first quarter of this year.

Two years ago, corporate 1% media held the monopoly on information and the way in which it was shared.

They were ignoring, censoring or distorting social media and citizen journalism.

Over the last year or so, #PostTruth, #AlternativeFacts and #FakeNews was them laughing at us, trying to distract, divide, demoralise and disempower everybody with infantile astroturfing, gaslighting, flame wars and worse.

Now they’re so desperate that they’re literally printing nazi propaganda, blatantly inciting violence. They’ve been fighting citizen journalism since long before social media arrived. The internet offers us the edge we have desperately needed.

This letter marks another significant win in the struggle for a truly independent media, a real democracy and a fairer, more truthful and compassionate world.

This was only the politicians’ first hurdle though. Next, they should be bringing criminal prosecutions against all the Murdochian, Machievellian hatemongers masquerading as journalists.

If they can introduce some meaningful, strong legislation to democratise media ownership then that would be the cherry on the cake.

Here’s the full letter, as originally published by the independent.

Sincere thanks to all the MPs involved, even the Tories and Blairites.

Occupy News Network launch new fedbook page

In August last year, Occupy News Network’s fedbook channel was hacked by a small number of selfish fkwits the original co-founders. At that time, the page had 17k followers and dozens of contributors. It had become a significant hub of the movement, sharing information, news and views which corporate media had censored or distorted.

For a short while the page was renamed “The ‘O’ News Network”, posting distinctly white brocialist bullshit before vanishing from my prolefeed altogether. I don’t know if they renamed it again, blocked me, or sold it for profit. Those responsible claimed with much fanfare that they were launching a new ONN website, scheduled for October last year. I suppose given the parlous state of their few postings after the hack, we should be grateful that this never happened.

ONNlogo1v2GreenOccupy London stalwart, Obi has been hard at work reclaiming and rebooting the ONN youtube and twitter channels.

I was flattered to be asked to create the new logo and banners, which look quite good.

Today, we have begun rebuilding the old facebook channel from scratch.

If you were one of the original contributors, or if you want to join this new hub, get in touch.

Stop The Arms Fair release schedule for week of action against #DSEI

Every two years, the DSEI arms fair takes place at the Excel centre in London docklands and they are greeted by a massive coalition of civil society, determined to oppose them.

DSEI (Defence & Security Equipment International) is the world’s largest arms fair, where arms buyers and sellers get together to network and make deals, profiting from the death and suffering their weapons cause worldwide.

The arms fair has been taking place at the docklands since 2001, opening it’s doors there for the first time the same day as the 9/11 atrocities. DSEI has always been met by opposition and resistance. By 2011, a network of groups and individuals called Stop The Arms Fair had emerged, united by their campaigns to put a stop to arms fairs in the UK.

stafitstartshere.png

Every two years, the arms dealers are forced to negotiate actions designed to make them reconsider their line of work and to prevent them from being able to set up their exhibition. Stop The Arms Fair have just published the schedule for this year’s blockade, 4th to 11th September 2017 and it looks more action packed than ever, with multiple actions planned for each day.

Last time round in 2015, hundreds of people blocked the entrance for six consecutive days and nights, preventing the arms fair from setting up properly. Occupy the Arms Fair activists and others livestreamed from a small camp throughout the week of action and conducted a night raid on the exhibition centre. A hardcore few remained for the duration of the exhibition. Some dressed as the grim reaper to greet the arms dealers as they arrived. They were compelled to step over bodybags as they avoided probing questions from activists, all livestreamed – broadcast live to the internet.

There is a camp planned again this year, so remember to bring a tent!

Activists all over the country have been holding training sessions, planning meetings and running workshops, film screenings and other events to prepare for this year’s resistance. If you haven’t already, get trained up!

Let’s make 2017 the year we finally shut this murderous industry down and usher in a lasting era of peace and enlightenment!

BLATANT: MOCKING FAIL OF FAR-RIGHT 1% MEDIA [Daily Wail Corrections]

dailywail_BLATANT

The tabloids, their corporate advertisers and chums in government started it…

The last 7 years of the far-right 1%’s constant, vicious, brutal ‘austerity’ (or class war), punishing the most vulnerable members of society is beyond ‘bullying’. As new Sheffield MP, Jared O’Mara says, it’s eugenics. Shadow chancellor, John McDonnell has rightly called for Iain Duncan Smith to face criminal charges over WCA ‘fit to work’ deaths.

The Tories’ Victorian throwback, Jacob Rees-Mogg has barely been slapped on the wrist for associating with nazis. Racist Tory MP, Anne Marie Morris has been suspended from the party, when she should have been expelled and arrested for using hate speech.

It is laughably hypocritical for the 1% to use their gutter press to point the finger at the ‘hard-left’ when their far-right propaganda is so demonstrably damaging to the national psyche in terms of it’s racism, classism and fearmongering.

DailyWail_BlatantWP

It’s not just the fail, either…

Extreme Weather Report, 1st July 2017

July 1st.

Massive A-B march and demonstration in London today to get the #ToriesOut.

Great turnout, atmosphere and rhetoric, with many speakers calling for more strikes, occupations and direct action. Well done to the thousands who turned out to support comrade Corbyn’s movement to occupy democracy.

Resistance continues at Preston New Road, Lancashire on day 124 of their rolling blockade against fracking idiots, Cuadrilla. All love and power to the brave protectors holding their ground to protect the UK’s drinking water.

Here’s some of today’s extreme weather from around the world;

Berlin and Moscow are both flooded.

Karachi is flooded.

Parts of New York are also underwater.

The heatwave plaguing South Eastern Europe has killed five in Bulgaria.

Unprecedented out of control wildfires in Siberia can be seen from space.

Wildfires in SW Colorado (US) are only 29% contained.

China is battling floods in the South and a heatwave in the North.

All these links/articles were posted in the last 24 hours of writing. It’s the same thing almost every day now, if you can bring yourself to take a few minutes to check. Keywords: weather, floods and fires.

Sad as hell. Be excellent to each other.

Not One Day More? OCCUPY THE LOT!

We’ve all had enough.

Not just of ‘this Government’. Not just of ‘austerity’. We’ve had enough of this whole rotten, so called ‘neo-liberal’ establishment. We’ve had enough of Murdochian post-truthmesiters desperately trying to regain control of our minds with fake news dripping in hate and fear. We’ve had enough of the spectacle that seeks to distract, divide and disempower us. Most of us don’t care about whether you’re old or young, Brexit or remain, rich or poor. We are finally starting to understand that we, the people must create the next new world order, not these detached, soulless automatons prowling the halls of Westminster.

Corbynmania is encouraging, because for those of us listening, it’s not all about Jeremy Corbyn, as delightful as he is. It’s not about his fantastic allies in the stinking corridors of power either.

It’s about their vision and their method for accomplishing that vision. Their policies.

It’s not Corbyn they fear, it’s us. The ever expanding precariat. Understanding the policies and supporting them. Hearing the message and responding to the call, taking action. They fear our kindness and our compassion. They fear our limitless capacity for unconditional love. They fear our loving selflessness most when things are at their worst, for that is when we need it most.

A thread jumped out at me from one of the occuchannels recently, saying that this People’s Assembly demo on Saturday (Not One Day More) is being led by ‘da yoof’ and that they’ve specifically asked for ‘a big Occupy presence’ there. This comes after Corbyn’s repeated calls to occupy the empty properties that are being used as landbanks while people are dying on our streets for lack of basic shelter. I can imagine the apparently Corbyn infused spirit of this year’s Glastonbury filling parliament square and it arouses my least cynical dreams for a fairer world. They’ve got SHY FX headlining. And Captain SKA. Singing ‘Liar Liar’ right outside parliament…

PAnotonedaymore
I’m not sure if I’m going to be able to make it due to health and funding issues, but I hear the call and am trying to sort a lift out. Whether I go or not, I thought it might be useful to share some of my thoughts and experiences from the last six years with everybody, particularly the next generation of Occupiers, so here goes;

  1. Occupations of public space are hard work…and fun!
  2. Real Democracy is hard work but worth it in the end.
  3. All our struggles are intersectional. Check your privilege.
  4. Take leadership from the most impacted.
  5. Praxis Makes Perfect.
  6. Leaderless does not mean ‘without leaders’. Step up if and when you have to. Don’t fall into the Tyranny of Structurelessness.
  7. Listen more, talk less. Listen to the old guard. Know your history.
  8. Moneylessness (ie gift economies) expose and purge the corrupt and greedy.
  9. Love conquers fear. Every time. Most people are good people.
  10. Keep it lit. Take breaks. Don’t burn out. It’s not selfish to look after yourself too.
  11. Negotiations with power must be diplomatic but uncompromising.
  12. If you can’t dance it’s not your revolution.

One solution, rEVOLution.

Revolution is just the constant state of change that we are all experiencing. You’re either consciously trying to influence that change, or you’re not. Don’t judge people who aren’t too harshly. You will probably need to step back from it all yourself one day.

If you’re still not interested in politics, it is still most interested in you…the revolution is constant and relentless and there are infinite ways in which it will deceive you, distract you, depress the shit out of you and ultimately divide us.

Don’t lose touch with your friends and family as you make new friends and family on the barricades. Don’t fall out with people you disagree with. Agreeing to disagree is OK. You learn more from people you disagree with. If we shut down disagreeable conversations, (or if they are shut down for us with digital algorithms) we preclude serious change.

Love and respect everybody.

Don’t be violent, but don’t be timid either.

We don’t need riots any more than we need A-B marches.

With the greatest respect to all those who were at Grenfell and to the people’s assembly, we don’t need one more minute’s silence or one more minute’s applause either. Of course we should honour the victims, the survivors and the heroic. It’s brilliant that they’re bringing so many people together on Saturday, but we don’t need ‘one massive show of strength and solidarity‘ as much as we need organised, ongoing occupations, empowering people and forcing the necessary negotiations with power.

Diversity of tactics wins. Voting, Protest or Direct Action alone won’t change anything. We need them ALL AT ONCE!

We need communities to come together and stay together, taking back the commons with real, direct democracy. Not just in London but everywhere, all over the country and ultimately, the world.

Like 2011, but better.

We must reclaim the rights of all the dispossessed voiceless people and create this better society ourselves. Corbyn’s revitalised Labour party can help, but that’s all they can do.

It’s down to us to actually make it happen.

Make it count.

Keep it lit.

#GE2017. Tactical Vote? Don’t Accidentally Vote for a Blairite.

Many voters are planning to ‘vote tactically’ this general election in order to remove the Tories from power. Despite Jeremy Corbyn and Tim Farron officially rejecting calls for such a progressive alliance, some local constituencies are making the necessary preparations already.

In order for Corbyn’s insurrection to really succeed, it is important to remember that the Labour party is infested with Blairite double agents. Blairites are politicians who support the so called ‘centrist’ neo-liberal nightmare of former Prime Minister and war criminal, Tony Bleurgh.

If you choose to participate in this year’s General Election, be sure not to accidentally vote for a Blairite!

You can identify Blairites by checking their voting record.

For example, this is a list of currently serving Labour MPs who voted for the Iraq war.

The Blairite response to the snap election was to sharpen their knives in preparation for yet another chicken coup attempt.

This time they put forward Yvette Cooper as their candidate for ‘post-Corbyn’ leader..

REMEMBER!

Voting is only one, extremely limited way of influencing change. Your daily life choices have a more significant influence on the world around you. Your attitude, behaviour and spending habits carry more weight than our broken democracy.

If you must participate in party politics, be sure your candidate reflects your values, principles and ideals. If there is no candidate doing this in your constituency, lobby your least worst candidate on the issues that matter to you, or consider running yourself.

All power to those trying to repair Parliament, inside and out.

Whether you choose to participate or not, stay strong.

Don’t allow this broken system to break you.

BRAGGING RIGHTS! Beautiful Trouble are quoting Ann Narkeh on their homepage! :D

Is it narcissistic to brag about an achievement like this?
Is it even really an achievement, or a thing?
It is for me!  (even if you do have to refresh the page half a million times to find the quote…)

I felt a similar way when meeting Russell Brand…and when David Graeber retweeted me that one time,…and when the Canary said those nice things about the Occupied Sun,…but Noam Chomsky was the one who told me that gratuitous namedropping isn’t cool, so I didn’t brag about it…too much! 😉 (!)

In all seriousness though, I love the beautiful solutions in Beautiful Trouble.os_bookreview_beautifultrouble

The review I wrote, which they’ve quoted from could never do real justice to my deep affection for both the ongoing work and the people doing it.

I feel very proud to be namedropped by them alongside so many great individuals and organisations I admire and respect so much.

Yay Ann Narkeh Media!

🙂

That is all.

As you were.

Carry on.
