Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, attempts to close Democracy Village, a community of dissenters who've pitched their tents on Parliament Square here in UK.
He's calling Parliament Square a WORLD HERITAGE SITE, and it started with the recent removal of anti-Iraq protest of Brian Hawe who's been protesting 'on the pavement' of Parliament Square since 2001.
Maybe Democracy Village is a set up, safe in the knowledge that it's THE PRIVATE GRASS of Parliament Square that's out of bounds, not the public pavement. A cynical publicity stunt to get Parliament Square closed forever to public dissenters who don't toe the FOR PROFIT, CORPORATE WAR MACHINE party line - be it a red, yellow or blue party. And I say this so you'll notice the cunning closing statement, "What sort of ORDER do we want in Parliament Square?" Order? New? World? Order? These guys will never stop, as long as they're in power.
June 21st update: here's a new film from Spine TV about Democracy Village on Parliament Square.
July 25th update: bailifs have finally moved in and CLOSED Democracy Village. I don't remember this earth-shattering news being broadcast all over the TV news - maybe Democracy can now go fuck itself.
