And the next day, the BBC’s flagship news program Today on Radio 4, ran a seven-minute segment asking, in the words of presenter Mishal Husain, “Are the protestors right? Have we been biased at the BBC in favor of Israel?”

Approximately 5,000 protesters brought the roads around the BBC’s London headquarters to a standstill

APTOPIX Venezuela Election

 

The truth about Venezuela: a revolt of the well-off

Major media outlets have already reported that Venezuela’s poor have not joined the right-wing opposition protests, but that is an understatement: it’s not just the poor who are abstaining – in Caracas, it’s almost everyone outside of a few rich areas like Altamira, where small groups of protesters engage in nightly battles with security forces, throwing rocks and firebombs and running from tear gas.

Walking from the working-class neighborhood of Sabana Grande to the city center, there was no sign that Venezuela is in the grip of a “crisis” that requires intervention from the Organization of American States (OAS), no matter what John Kerry tells you. The metro also ran very well, although I couldn’t get off at Alta Mira station, where the rebels had set up their base of operations until their eviction this week.

“Anonymous” is involved in strategic destabilization movements, in Ukraine, Syria and elsewhere, nearly all of them in line with US foreign policy interests.  Now they have a new “occupy” styled campaign:

Propaganda Psy-Op? “Worldwide Wave of Action”. The “Global Spring” Begins

Washington’s Blog has brought to our attention a series of videos produced by “ Wave of Action ” and “Anonymous” concerning the launching of a “Worldwide Global Awakening”, a so-called “Global Spring.” 

This initiative has all the appearances of a Psy Op., a carefully staged propaganda campaign to create confusion and channel people into manipulated protest movements.

  • Who produced this blatant propaganda?
  • Where did the funding come from?

 

Don’t be a useful idiot.

Two Environmentalists Were Charged with ‘Terrorism Hoax’ for Too Much Glitter on Their Banner

This sounds like a joke right?  Except for the 10 year maximum prison sentence part.  American totalitarian douchiness is going off the rails.  This sort of fascistic twisting of “law” to persecute political opponents is what we used to be against as a nation.  Impassioned speeches demonized Hitler and Mussolini, the Soviets and Red China.  But now the thugs in charge have devolved into little tinpot dictators across our very own militarized empire of paranoia and total corruption.
