Charlie Hebdo massacre abused for attacking civil liberties

This video from the USA says about itself:

Unconstitutional – The War on Our Civil Liberties

2 November 2012

Unconstitutional: The War on Our Civil Liberties, is the third in a series of Public Interest Pictures films that follows Unprecedented: The 2000 Presidential Election and Uncovered: The War on Iraq. True to their legacy, Unconstitutional provides the facts and stories that illuminate administration lies, wrongheaded policies, and the real victims of these actions–the American people.

Here, you’ll get the real story behind the USA PATRIOT Act and other administration policies and the gut wrenching stories behind those affected–from law-abiding store clerks to United States Olympians unable to travel. It’ll remind you of what America used to stand for and what it seems we’re falling for now. In short, this one-hour film will affirm why you’re angry and give you a tool to help others join your ranks.

Robert Greenwald

Last week’s terrorist attack on the offices of Charlie Hebdo in Paris is being cynically exploited not only by France, but also by the United States and its allies, to advance an utterly reactionary agenda. Attacks on basic democratic rights, already evident in the mass deployment of French police and now troops, go hand in hand with the preparations to escalate war abroad, in the first instance in the Middle East and North Africa: here.

France deploys 10,000 troops in wake of Charlie Hebdo attack: here.

No One in Europe Is Tougher on Terror Than France. That Didn’t Stop the Attacks: here.

What should we do regarding the «post Charlie» national unity? Here.

The attack on Charlie Hebdo in Paris has provided the latest hook for the government of Prime Minister David Cameron to hang plans for further repressive powers for Britain’s security services, MI5, MI6 and Government Communication Headquarters (GCHQ): here.

In the aftermath of the terrorist attack in Paris, Italy has been strengthening its state apparatus and restricting civil liberties. In addition, anti-immigrant chauvinism is on the rise: here.

Germany: The magazine Der Spiegel has reported that the Daimler corporation has been comparing the names, addresses and birth dates of all its 280,000 employees worldwide with data on European Union (EU) and United States terrorist lists in order to contribute to “the fight against terrorism”: here.

Even as the December 15–16 police siege of a Sydney café continues to be cited by governments around the world to help justify the global “war on terror,” selective media leaks by police sources underscore the fact that the entire affair was exploited from the outset by the Australian government for political purposes: here.

  2. Who are our government? the terrorist acts of recent were already on the security list of suspect potential terrorists, so we are now having more civil liberties curtailed, I suggest the security agents are working for terrorists as a collaboration to oppress the people, the controlling elite are not worried about terrorism, they are worried that to many people will awaken to the controllers of our minds.

  8. This is a good post and important. Many right-wing politicians in the U.S. take every opportunity to advance the pro-defense, pro-war agenda.

    After 9/11, it was worse – it was both sides. However, you can still see many politicians push that agenda today…
