Scotland‘s Yes and No camps hit out at loyalist nazi thugs in Glasgow’s George Square

Monday 22nd september 2014

Activists on both Yes and No sides of the Scottish referendum campaign have slammed the “clearly orchestrated” violence by nazi-saluting loyalist thugs in Glasgow’s George Square on Friday night.

The Union Jack-waving crowd invaded the city’s main square early in the evening and launched attacks against Yes campaigners, including a Glasgow city councillor.

Eleven arrests have been made over the weekend following the shameful scenes and Police Scotland has pledged to track down other perpetrators.

Communist Party of Britain Scottish secretary Tommy Morrison told the Morning Star the violence was “clearly orchestrated by fascist groups” such as the Scottish and English Defence Leagues.

“We know they had members over from Ireland and up from England. They were in George Square in numbers which they just can’t pull together from Scotland.

“They attacked Yes campaigners who were peaceful.

“There has been some ridiculous stuff on social media saying these thugs are the true face of the No campaign — as if two million Scots are allying themselves with the fascists.”

Glasgow councillor Austin Sheridan was subjected to a vicious homophobic attack by a number of the loyalist thugs as he left the city chambers on Friday evening.

Mr Sheridan, SNP councillor for the city’s Baillieston ward, said: “I am shocked and sad — shocked in the sense that they were so aggressive and sad that there are people out there who are so divisive.

“I know fine well the majority of people who voted No will want to distance themselves from this behaviour.”

Conservative attempts to use the No victory to shut Scots out of the British government are a scandal: here.

Nazi Sobibor gas chambers rediscovered


This video says about itself:

Escape from Sobibor: 1987

22 August 2013

During WWII, the death camp at Treblinka had an escape, causing the Commandant at a similar camp in Sobibor to vow that his camp would never experience the same thing. But those who were its captives, the Jewish laborers that had been spared from the ovens, knew that they were on borrowed time and that their only hope was to escape… the only question was how to do it. However, because the Germans would kill an equal number of others whenever a group attempted to escape, the captives knew that if ever an escape was tried, all 600 prisoners in the camp would have to be included… logistically precluding any ideas about tunnels or sneak breakouts. Indeed, to have such a mass escape could only mean that the Ukrainian guards and Germain officers would have to be killed, which many of the Jews felt simply reduced themselves to no better than their captors… thus making it a struggle of conscience. And therein lies the story, with the film being based on a factual account of what then happened at that Sobibor prison.

The above film is public domain. I have posted this in good faith with the information and records available to me online.

Sobibor gas chambers found again

Update: Wednesday Sep 17 2014, 21:03

Researchers have found the exact location of the gas chambers of Sobibor, one of the nazi death camps in Poland. The study lasted eight years. The researchers, including a Dutch archaeologist, called the find important for the study of the Holocaust.

After an uprising in October 1943 the Germans closed the camp and they demolished the buildings to delete the traces of their crimes. Then a woodland grew over it.

The gas chambers were in use from April 1942 to October 1943. The nazis have killed at least 170,000 Jews there.

Thai military dictator condones murdering women


This is a music video by United States punk rock band the Dead Kennedys, live performance of their song called Holiday in Cambodia.

It is about Cambodia during the evil times of the Pol Pot dictatorship.

Now, in 2014, it looks like Thailand, neighbour to Cambodia, is not really a much better holiday destination, with its dictatorship now than Cambodia then.

We already know that, if you plan to spend your holidays in beautiful Thailand, then you can get into big trouble when taking George Orwell’s novel 1984 with you, as the dictatorship hates that novel.

And, no matter how hot Thai beaches can be, it seems very dangerous to bring your swimwear as well.

From daily The Independent in Britain:

Thailand beach murders: Thai PM suggests ‘attractive’ female tourists cannot expect to be safe in bikinis

In a televised speech on tourist safety, following the murder of two Britons on the island of Koh Tao, Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha questioned whether female travellers can be safe in bikinis

Natasha Culzac

Thailand’s military ruler has suggested that “beautiful” female visitors to his country should not expect to be safe in bikinis.

Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha allegedly made the comments as the investigation into the death of two Britons intensifies.

David Miller, 24, and Hannah Witheridge, 23, were killed earlier this week after they attended a beach party on the island of Koh Tao in the Gulf of Thailand.

Negative attention on the country – to which 800,000 Britons visit each year – appears to have left its leader attempting to offer explanations for why young travellers may run into trouble there.

Speaking in a live broadcast today discussing tourist safety, he said: “There are always problems with tourist safety. They think our country is beautiful and is safe so they can do whatever they want, they can wear bikinis and walk everywhere,” according to the AFP news agency.

He added: “Can they be safe in bikinis… unless they are not beautiful?”

No arrests have yet been made following the murder of Miller and Witheridge, whose bodies were found less than 100 metres from the location of where the gathering was being held on Sunday night. …

The bodies were taken to Bangkok and autopsies have today found that Witheridge died from head wounds while Miller suffered severe blows to the head and then drowned in the surf. …

These comments [by dictator Prayuth Chan-ocha] were rebuffed by Witheridge’s MP, Brandon Lewis, who told the Daily Mail: “I have not seen anything indicating that there should be any blame on the victims, and right now the investigation will hopefully be targeted on finding the perpetrator of the crime.

“I hope the focus will be on bringing whoever committed this barbaric crime to justice.”
