The British descent into total tyranny takes another step forward

Home Secretary, Theresa May

After the riots in London and throughout the UK I was quick to report on the full spectrum push against democracy and freedom from all sectors of the British government, including Prime Minister David Cameron.

It started with calls to shut down social media in times of government-declared emergency and even resulted in the imprisonment of two young men for four years because they failed to incite a riot on Facebook.

These moves seem tame to what has now emerged in Britain: a blanket ban on all demonstrations, marches, protests and other gatherings in several areas of London for a whopping 30 days starting September 2nd.

The ban was put in place by Theresa May, the Home Secretary, and it will cover Tower Hamlets in East London along with for neighboring boroughs in London.

The moratorium was declared after a request was placed by acting Commissioner of the Scotland Yard, Tim Godwin, amongst fears that more violence would be caused if protests were allowed to continue.

Theresa May attempted to justify this undemocratic ban on protests by saying that, “Having carefully considered the legal tests in the Public Order Act and balanced rights to protest against the need to ensure local communities and property are protected, I have given my consent to a ban on all marches in Tower Hamlets and four neighbouring boroughs for a 30-day period”.

This effectively blocked the plan for an English Defense League rally in the capitol, along with opposing anti-racist rallies organized by the British chapter of Unite Against Fascism and United East End.

However, the groups Unite Against Fascism and United East End plan to move forward with the anti-Fascist march on September 3rd regardless of the moratorium.

In a statement the groups declared that, “We the undersigned welcome the banning of the racist English Defence League’s (EDL) march through Tower Hamlets.

However, we believe the headlines claiming the EDL have been “banned” from Tower Hamlets are misleading. The EDL will still be holding a static protest in the borough.

We are also appalled to discover that the Metropolitan Police are applying for a blanket ban on ALL marches across five London boroughs: Tower Hamlets, Newham, Hackney, Islington and Waltham Forest; and the City of London for 30 days”, said the statement.

This is a huge attack on everyone’s civil liberties and prevents people’s right to oppose racism.

We have the democratic right to peacefully march through Tower Hamlets on 3 September to show unity of Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Sikh, Hindu, Black, Asian, LGBT communities, trade unions and all those against fascism and for freedom, and to voice opposition to the EDL’s attempts to divide us.

Our legal advice says there is no law that says if one march has been banned all marches in that area must be banned.

It is our human right to peacefully march in Tower Hamlets.

We therefore support the joint UAF/UEE protest on 3 September”

I just hope that the UAF and UEE will not be met with violence at the hands of police forces that support the anti-democratic fascistic declaration.

Interestingly, the ban is also serendipitously timed to prevent the protest against the massive arms trade exposition on September 13th.

The protest is one of London’s largest and is in opposition to the world’s largest arms fair called the Defense and Security Equipment International that operates from September 13th to 16th in the ExCeL Center in East London.

The now banned protest, dubbed “Disarm DSEi” would be protesting the arms exhibition which showcases more than 1,200 companies to over 25,000 buyers from around the world, which includes representatives of dictatorships and other regimes guilty of human rights abuses.

Another protest blocked under the government ban would be the October 1st protest called “Europe Against Austerity” which involves trade unions and other social organizations who were planning to stage a demonstration at the European Conference Against Austerity and Privatization.

It is quite sad to see the UK slowly descend into a police state styled after the oppressive American regime we currently find ourselves oppressed by.

The EDL is a zionist funded organisation they regularly fly the flag of Israel at public appearances and generally speaking stir up race hatred and fearmongering specifically targeting Musilms. Considering the undue destructive influence of the "friends of Israel" and the supine kow towing of our so called representatives in the parliament of fools to the pro Israel lobby one concludes that the motive of the so called English Defence League is actually the opposite to the stated goal of "defence" and is destruction. They are a convenient tool of the corrupt establishment being used to stifle dissent. Brownshirts in the pre war Nazi regime served a similar function.

The march by the EDL was to take place to protest the notices appearing right across that part of Lodon stating that Sharia law was imposed in the area.
Non muslims have been effectively cleansed and we now have a situation pre Kosovo and the illegal attack on Serbia where muslim immigrants have moved in using marriage and huge families plus other means to infitrate so many more until effectively they are in control.
They are now in total control in large areas of Britain and publicly proclaiming independence under the law by imposing their own sharia.
And all that is done by the disgraceful Cameron government - now reognised as a pack of war criminals after Libya -is to ban and demonise those Brits who would try to stand against this encroaching and alien invasion.

EDL apologist you have been duped. Recognise a setup when you see one.

Who invented the muslim brotherhood ? Radical muslims for hire ever since the British empire invented them.
Did you know they worked for the Nazis during the war. Who took over the network after that ?

So called Sharia zones. Whom is really being served by this so called sharia agenda and the photo opportunities and sound bytes so helpfully provided ?

Re Serbia find out who flew in the "radical muslims" and provided the weapons. Who profited from that ?

Apply the lies and misdirection divide and conquer or put another way, create the reason for conflict set the gullible fools fighting amongst each other then profit off the resulting mess.

"They are now in total control in large areas of Britain and publicly proclaiming independence under the law by imposing their own sharia."

Which areas ????? Where ????? Post the locations.

Note I am a white guy with no religious beliefs.

Try looking at London and Birmingham for a start.

Sharia Law Being Imposed in London, United Kingdom(link below. There are more if you search for it.

Sharia: a law unto itself?(link below). 85 of these courts operating in Britain. This is just the start.

And as for the so called anti-fascists they are the scum of the earth, just as bad as some of the EDL. They do our political masters bidding and are always looking to stop free speech everywhere they go. Scum and violent the whole lot of them. Martin smith marxist leader of the fascist uaf is always being arrested, assault on police and others. Another leader bennet was in court this year for stirring up hatred and trying to incite a riot.

Of course; the Jews did it. Why didn't I think of that? As for Muslims being cleansed, unfortunately, no.

A ban on demo's and protests? Monitoring and shutting down cellphone and internet services in times of civil disturbances?
All been done before - personally witnessed such in Indonesia under Sukarno / Suharto take-over; and later with Marcos & Co in the Philippines. 1972 and again in 1986, Nation-wide power cuts, all landline PLDT phone systems off, TV stations seized by government troops along with radio stations - only the 'official' voice being broadcast.
Conversely, even that doesn't stop the jungle tom-toms or man with forked stick bearing message but it does slow the system down.
