Go there to vote for Julian Assange – in court today he was denied his freedom despite such luminaries as Ken Loach, John Pilger and Jemima Khan standing bail of £20,000 each.
Justice must be done here.
Those who are in a position to nominate candidates for the Nobel Peace Prize need to ask themselves if they want to live in a world where, as Congressman Dr Ron Paul so eloquently said, “If telling you the truth makes you a traitor we’re in big trouble”?
Assange deserves Time Magazine Award and the Nobel Peace Prize this year – the whistle blower systems he has in place will make Government around the world, corporations and others accountable to the press. Behind all the rhetoric this is the real reason Assange sits in gaol tonight.
Bloggers are oft accused of bad journalism. It’s true in many cases. Bloggers do not have access to the databases, resources and sources that traditional journalists command. Nor do they have the training and professionalism. However, the wikileaks/Assange scandal is creating a very widespread picture of bad journalism in some of the most renowned journals worldwide.
Numerous prestige publications continue to state that Asssange is wanted in Sweden on charges of rape. This is completely untrue. He is sought on charges of not using a condom. One of the women concerned “twittered” about her wonderful night with him – before comparing notes with the other accuser, trying to remove the record of her tweets then going to police to enquire. The first arrest warrant for rape was struck down immediately and many legal sources in Sweden have decried the treatment of Assange.
Many of these same publications accuse him of putting lives in danger by carelessly releasing 270,000 cables to the internet. Untrue. The cables are being redacted to remove such information by the five major News organisations Wikileaks is working with. As of yesterday 871 cables were in the public domain.
The truth is that Wikileaks last major release proved that the USA had been committing war crimes in Iraq recklessly. Over 100,000 civilians dead. Not a single death anywhere can be or has been traced to any of Wikileaks leaks. Ever.
The fact is that the USA is highly embarrassed by these leaks and so it should be: they contain highly embarrassing material. More embarrassing still is the unconstitutional and undemocratic pressure exerted through Corporate America via enterprises such as Amazon and Paypal to try and “hit them where it hurts”.
The only thing that will lead to the full 270,000 cables being released to the wild is if the USA and it’s allies maintain their current stance in the face of undeniable truth. Hillary Clinton ordered illegal spying on senior UN figures. US politicians, broadcasters and other idiots are calling for Assange to be killed. These are criminal acts.
Publishing leaked documents is not as many US legal commentators have maintained.
It really is so simple and yet so profound most people don’t get it – often even meditators or Buddhists of long standing just don’t get it. But it is simple, so very, very simple.
Head on over to the forums at http://www.vipassanaforum.net/ and sign up. You will learn a simple non-sectarian, scientifically backed meditation technique (with no bells and whistles) and get it in a short time.
If you have ever thought about meditating, you’ve wasted you’re time 😀 …. so get on your butt and do it instead.

From The UK Column:
by Robert Green
In the October 2009 print edition of the UK Column, we reported in our article, “BBC Hides Truth of Girl’s Sexual Abuse Ordeal” the shocking ordeal of Downs Syndrome girl, Hollie Greig, who was horribly abused by an Aberdeen paedophile ring, over a period of ten years. After investigating and planning a documentary, the BBC abruptly dropped the case, despite admitting that Hollie was a reliable and accurate witness. It is important to stress that both the police and qualified medical experts have described Hollie as a competent and entirely honest witness.
Recently a policeman personally told the UK Column that police had themselves experienced their own paedopile investigations suddenly being dropped by senior police officers. He added “If you want to really get to the paedophiles you should look at Westminster”. The implications of this statement are frightening – a paedophile ring amongst our political leaders – the political elite which has control of education and Social Services? The general public needs to open its eyes and confront this evil – and fast.
The fact is we are not civilised. We do not live in a Civil Society. Not when Paedophile rings rule every level of society.

Today from 1pm In London an annual rally and march will take place combining the forces of Survivors of abuse and Child action groups. The biggest two problems in this area are “traumatic forgetting” which make accurate statistics difficult and the utterly dominant force of denial in society – which stands as a force against real change. To end denial we must achieve:
- RECOGNITION OF PREVELANCE OF ABUSE: 30 – 40% of ADULTS ABUSED AS CHILDREN. THE COST TO SOCIETY IS IN WASTED LIVES AND BILLIONS OF POUNDS.
- RECOGNITION THAT ABUSE OCCURS MAINLY IN THE HOME AND WITH TRUSTED CARERS.
- END “STRANGER DANGER” CAMPAIGNS/DENIAL – THE DANGER IS RARELY FROM STRANGERS YET MILLIONS ARE WASTED ON THESE CAMPAIGNS.
- END DEMONISATION OF THE INTERNET – THE INTERNET HAS DONE MORE GOOD FOR ADULT SURVIVORS THAN GOVERNMENT HAS – IT HAS PROVIDED US SHARED RESOURCES AND SUPPORT AND ALLOWED US TO BECOME CONNECTED – AND THEREFORE A FORCE FOR CHANGE.
- RECOGNITION THAT ABUSE IS BOTH PSYCHOLOGICALLY AND PHYSICALLY DAMAGING – THE PHYSICAL CONSEQUENCES ARE UNDER RESEARCHED AND DENIED. SOMATISATION DISORDERS DO NOT EXIST – UNTREATED INJURIES SUSTAINED IN CHILDHOOD RAPE AND BATTERY CAUSE REAL PHYSICAL DAMAGE WHICH REMAINS UNTREATED – WHILST UNDER-EDUCATED DOCTORS BLINDLY BLAME THE PATIENTS “PSYCHOLOGY”.
- MORE RESEARCH INTO CYCLES OF ABUSE AND EARLY INTERVENTION IN PROBLEM FAMILIES.
- A NATIONWIDE ENQUIRY INTO ORGANISED PAEDOPHILIA AND THE LINKS WITH FREEMASONRY AND THE JUSTICE SYSTEM: THIS SEEMS TO BE WHY MANY ABUSERS DO NOT GET PUNISHED.
Research indicates the majority of prostitutes, prisoners and hard drug addicts were abused as children – yet we demonise and ostracise these victims, imprison them and criminalise them – because they are trying to cope with horrors in their minds with no effective understanding of the aetiology of their problems and no effective treatment regime that deals with addiction behaviours and the underlying psychological distress.
We are not civilised.
