Today is day 1 of my 30-day hunger strike in solidarity with the Palestinian hunger strikers who will, within days if not hours from now, die for refusing to accept the unacceptable if we do not unite in their defense. – Ken O’Keefe
As I look over Dale Farm today I see the inevitable world envisioned by the 1%
A toxic, scarred, inhospitable landscape, a terrestrial hell suitable for Satan himself.
UPDATE – For the idiots who bought the lies and slander of Catherine Myles (aka Soraya Fitzgerald), Saeb Shaath, Jez Cuthbert, Cath Jenkins, Allison Hubbard (aka Vera Lynn), Sammi Coulthard (aka Saja Rana & Maitreyi Atmaja), Mary Rizzo, Mary Shepherd, Miri Wood, Jo Ann Westcott and court jester Ismail Patel (aka Iggle Piggle), here is a little revisit of a post that shows just how stupid some of you can be.
The Irish traveler community of Dale Farm in England are facing a forced eviction, they are also facing a racist system that falsely claims that the residents of Dale Farm are flouting the law. That is a lie, and the truth will be set out in the full documentary set to be released on October 1, 2011.
am beyond excited to announce that we are formalising a partnership that will ensure one of my fondest goals shall be achieved, that of a youth exchange between the children of Gaza and those of Europe. I am even more excited because we are focusing on the youth of Gaza as well as Belfast and Free Derry in the North of Ireland. These kids, ages 15 to 18, all know what violent conflict is about, and all of them deserve a chance to play with and understand their brothers and sisters from distant but all too similar conflict zones.
