St Agnes Place Eviction Brutally Completed

The eviction of London’s oldest squatted community was completed last night after an army of riot cops descended on this long running community which Lambeth first attempted to evict in the 70’s.

The last squatter was removed from his home at 10pm last night, and immediately rushed to hospital having suffered extensive injuries apparantly down to a vicious assault by police.

A demonstration outside Lambeth Town Hall last night won the support of local residents and a call out has been made to visit the street today when heavy demolition machinery will be used to demolish the buildings, and help support the 150 people who will be left homeless.

St Agnes Place Needs You – eviction kicking off now!

some cops practice writing while waiting around

The eviction of St Agnes Place community in Kennington (South London) by Lambeth Council has started today in earnest. The oldest squatted street in London has been swarming with riot police all day whilst residents are still resisting the bailiffs.

Throughout the day there have also been reports of police stopping people on their way to show support to St Agnes Place community outside Oval, Kennington, Stockwell and Brixton tubes.

A call has been made for people to go to the street and support the 150 strong community, that will become homeless if the eviction is not stopped. a map

Stop Press: Possible statement on Medical Cannabis Expected Wednesday

THE THREE THC4MS ‘conspirators’ being charged with conspiracy to supply cannabis chocolate, have mysteriously been summoned by the trial judge to an unscheduled hearing this Wednesday for an “announcement”.

There may of course be no connection, but this happens to be the same day that Home Sec Charles Clark is also expected to make an “announcement” at a government sponsored drugs conference in central London.

Masons of the Month

Above, is the doorway of 10 Duke Street, off Piccadilly, SW1. According to Stephen Knight, author of the well received freemasonic expose ‘The Brotherhood’ (first pub. 1983 Granada Publishing)this is the meeting point and (secret) headquarters of the highest ranking freemasons in the country, the so called Supreme Council of whose existance the majority of rank and file masons are not even aware.

According to Knight

“Nobody looking at that fine but anonymous house from outside could suspect that behind its pleasing facade, beyond the two sets of sturdy double doors and up the stairs there is a Black Room, a Red Room and a Chamber of Death. To high Masons, the house in Duke Street known as the Grand East.”

Knights book caused a storm of controversy on it’s release with it’s claims of masonic skullduggery rampant throughout the British establishment. Knight also revealed many former masonic secrets such as the brutal blood oaths of the initiation ceremonies.

Knight interviewed hundereds of former and current masons, and his book without doubt ruffled masonic feathers across the world. One of Knight’s interviews (reproduced here) illustrates techniques rogue masons may use to attack those who fall by the wayside.

18 months after publication of the book, Knight sadly died from a malignant tumour in his brain. He was, you guessed it, 33 years old.

Whilst no serious commentators have alleged Knight’s death to be any more than a tragedy, Martin Short’s speculation in his book ‘Inside the Brotherhood’ which he rather arrogantly styled as the sequel Knight would have written were he still alive, prompted one Californian mason to write the furious denial published here http://www.calodges.org

Whatever the truth, take a trip to Duke Street and see for yourself the mysterious ‘Offices of the Supreme Council’ (see if you can spot anyone going in or out, in 5 or 6 trips I’ve made there’s never been a soul about bar security).

Medical Cannabis: House of Lords reject ‘medical necessity’ defence appeal petition

MEDICAL CANNABIS users and suppliers who are prosecuted under the cannabis prohibition laws (1971 Misuse of Drugs Act), have been effectively banned from using the best legal defence argument they have, thanks to a decision by three House of Lords ‘Law Lords’, Lords Bingham, Carswell and Rodger.

The three guilty ‘Law Lords’ from the ‘House of Lords’, the ‘highest’ court in the land, (pictured above), have rejected a ‘petition to appeal’ to them after the ‘Court of Appeal’ rejected appeals by lawyers in several medical cannabis cases in which the ‘medical neccessity’ defence was refused by the original trial judges, who would not even allow juries to hear it.

Meanwhile, in an as ever contradictory move GW Pharmadeuticals have announced that they have been informed by the Home Office that the Drugs Minister, Paul Goggins, has confirmed that Sativex® oromucosal spray, its cannabis-based medicine, may be imported from Canada to satisfy its prescription to individual patients in the UK as an unlicensed medicine. www.thc4ms.org.uk

David Irving denies incarceration

David Irving today issued a statement denying that he is currently incarcerated in prison in Austria facing a possible 10 years imprisonment for holocaust denial.

Speaking from his cell he claimed that there is absolutely no evidence that he has ever even been arrested and that reports of him recently being denied bail have no substance whatsoever.

He claims that he personally has no knowledge of his imprisonment, that he is not a holocaust denier and that in fact the holocaust never even happened.

He further claims that rumours of his own existence have been much exaggerated, and that there is only hearsay evidence that he has ever existed at all.

His lawyers have confirmed that it is believed these rumours are part of a zionist conspiracy to further discredit his argument that nothing is actually true whatsoever, and in any event the second world war is an urban myth based around several black and white films made in the 30’s and 40’s.
