British police ban fuel poverty activist from Labour conference

This video from Greece says about itself:

And the British Establishment’s attacks on civil liberties continue … smearing political dissent, music by The Clash or by others, or blogging or journalism as ‘terrorism’.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Fuel poverty speaker barred from Labour fringe event

Thursday 18th September 2014

Greater Manchester Police will not reveal why Ewa Jasiewicz did not pass checks

A RENOWNED campaigner has been barred from attending next week’s Labour Party Conference after failing Great Manchester Police’s “security requirements,” Fuel Poverty Action announced yesterday.

Guardian reporter and environment activist Ewa Jasiewicz had been invited to speak at a fringe event on the realities of fuel poverty.

But less than two weeks after applying, conference organisers informed Ms Jasiewicz she was unable to attend the event as she had not passed the necessary police checks.

She was then told by the Great Manchester Police that the reasons behind her ban would not be divulged.

Fuel Poverty Action said in a statement: “We are left questioning whether what has taken place is political policing, with both an individual’s protest history and the ideas they promote — including bringing energy under public and community control, and the role of direct action in creating change — blocked from being heard.”

A Labour spokesman said the party would not be issuing a reply as the matter was up to the police.

One wonders: was Great Manchester Police inspired in this attack on Ms Jasiewicz’s civil liberties by sleazy ‘security’ corporation G4S? G4S, apparently hired by some brainless Labour Party central office bureaucrat for ‘security’ at the party conference?
