The Man Who Took The BBC Licence to Court and Won

2941Tony Rooke: 'Incontrovertible' The Man Who Took The BBC Licence to Court and Won

In February 2013 documentary maker Tony Rooke took the licence fee to court under Article 3, Section 15 of the Terrorism Act 2000 on the basis that the BBC were complicit in the 9/11 cover-up and had deliberately misled the public in their broadcasting. His most recent documentary 'Incontrovertible' follows his challenge through the legal system of what he describes as 'a crime' by the BBC. Tony was given the opportunity to demonstrate to the judge that the BBC had quite deliberately lied to the British public about the events of that day, in particular their 'Conspiracy Files' programme. The fact that the BBC had foreknowledge and had reported on the collapse of WTC7 20 minutes before it happened formed the basis for his case that the licence was not appropriate. Tony was not fined and was allowed to walk away on a conditional discharge. killingauntiefilms.co.uk

Lefty Film Club in association with Radical Film Network presents Fourth Estate, followed by a Q&A session with director, Lee Salter. The political discussion undertakenin this Q&A session will belivestreamed. Produced in the UK on a zero-budget, the filmmakers spent two years contacting and interviewing journalists, organisers and critics of the corrupt industrial practices highlighted by, but not limited to, the Leveson Inquiry in 2011. This opportunity for serious consideration of the true, entrenched causes and effects of the UK’s inadequate media must not go unexplored, and the recent press scandals must not be framed in terms of the “bad apple” soundbites we’re so often fed. The Fourth Estate examines the people and practices of the media industries. Illuminating not only specific incidences of corruption by press groups, but how the wider business as a whole, including the film and entertainment industries, has a huge amount to answer for in the state of the political economy of the west.

We are organizing a Forum for Radical Sharing in Glasgow on Saturday, 14 November. If you would like to participate, we welcome you. We need to be clear that the Forum is not associated with the funding Edge provides. They are two separate things we do. This is an opportunity to share what you know about activism, to learn from other people, and to develop collaborations, partnerships, and friendships.

Stop the eviction on 28th November 2015 of the Stoddart family from their home and farm tenancy.

244Demo to support Andrew Stoddart & stronger Land Reform Bill #‎justice4sto Stop the eviction on 28th November 2015 of the Stoddart family from their home and farm tenancy.

TO: NICOLA STURGEON, FIRST MINISTER OF SCOTLAND, AND IAIN GRAY, MSP FOR EAST LOTHIAN Stop the eviction on 28th November 2015 of the Stoddart family from their home and farm tenancy. Why is this important? Andrew and Claire Stoddart have been farming in East Lothian for 22 years. During this time they have invested heavily in infrastructure and buildings on their farm at Colstoun Mains, creating a profitable and well-managed business. The Stoddart family are an integral part of the community. Andrew and Claire are well liked, and their 3 children go to the local school, as do the 4 children of their employees. The Stoddarts have been asked to leave the farm by the end of November. Once evicted, the Stoddart family will be forced to move from the local area, laying off their two employees, and taking their children away from school and friends. They are to be given very little recompense for the investments they have made over their lifetime, leaving them both homeless and unable to buy a farm elsewhere. I urge you all to show your support by signing this petition to ask the Scottish Government to intervene and stop the forced eviction of the Stoddart family. I address this petition to Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister of Scotland, and Iain Gray, MSP for East Lothian. Some of the issues around this eviction are highlighted in the channel 4 news item at link below. You can see what Andrew Stoddart has to say at 6:33 minutes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-6DzKzmFtA

FROM ORGANISERS FB PAGE: *** PLEASE NOTE SOME DETAILS MAY BE SUBJECT TO CHANGE OVER THE COMING MONTHS *** Greetings citizens of the world and Glasgow, We are Anonymous, and welcome to the 2015 event page for the Million Mask March Glasgow. This event is recognized worldwide as your chance to take a stand against those in power. The people who cover up their dreadful acts, by using the biased mainstream media to lure us away from the real truths. Who try to take our civil and human rights away, by driving us to poverty and making us ‘less’ than they are. The ones who rule, with no idea of what it’s like to be a ‘common man’. Well we are not less ! And we are more than common ! We are Legion! Anonymous is the answer. We are the fight, fighting back at the oppressors. Anonymous is not about the mask. Anonymous is about the idea. The idea that people like us can unite as one, and fight against the tyranny and oppression of those who have enslaved us and our minds. Anonymous has no leaders and no one in charge. What we have, is a collective of like minded individuals who are fed up fighting for scraps when we can be fighting against the Elite. They do not care for us, so we make them care. We make them listen. We are all one. Stop being angry about being able to do nothing, and join us. Use that anger. Use your voice. A wise man once said 'Like you I was forced to learn that there are those without decency, who must be fought without hesitation, without pity. Your anger gives you great power, if you use it wisely, and do not let it destroy you’ Our belief is that people should not be afraid of their governments, governments should be afraid of their people. At the end of the day they sit in their fancy houses, paid for by us, eating their lavish meals, which you can guarantee having no traces of horse/human meat, and prepared, by us. We are the ones with the real power, and without us the Elite would have NO ONE to rule, therefore would lose. When our eyes open, we see the real potential in ourselves. So do not think that you cannot make a difference. That you cannot change the world for the better. That is what they want you to believe. With the Million Mask March, you have the opportunity to let your voice be heard by the people, and the world ! Join us on the 5th of November, on a March from George Square to Glasgow Green, as we unite with brothers and sisters all over the world, to remind those in power that these streets, are OUR STREETS!

7.00pm Tue 3 Nov 2015
An event organised by the Scottish Socialist Party (SSP) in the Royal Overseas League, Edinburgh, to reject "Corbynmania" and "Nicolamania" in the debate on Scottish Independence and ask the question “Where now for the socialist left in Scotland?"

424For an Independent Socialist Scotland An event organised by the Scottish Socialist Party (SSP) in the Royal Overseas League, Edinburgh, to reject "Corbynmania" and "Nicolamania" in the debate on Scottish Independence and ask the question “Where now for the socialist left in Scotland?"

In recent months the Scottish political landscape has been completely transformed. The unexpected election of Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader has led some to conclude that Labour will now move left and promote socialist policies. But this will simply not happen. Jeremy Corbyn is a principled socialist but one who is a prisoner of the Blairite Parliamentary Labour Party. Equally the SNP is not about to move left either. Nicola Sturgeon is no socialist and neither is her party, regardless of her populism. Both Labour and the SNP are neo-liberal parties and both are keen to present their most ‘business friendly’ manifestoes in 2016. The SNP anti-austerity rhetoric does not reflect its actions: they plan £60m of cuts in services in Edinburgh, they have privatised Scotland’s non-domestic water contracts and sold off Edinburgh’s Sick Kids hospital to private companies. The Scottish Socialist Party states that it has not been carried away by “Corbynmania” or “Nicolamania”. They believe in an independent socialist Scotland. And they recognise there are no shortcuts to achieving it. The place for socialists is in a socialist party. There is an article in the National about this event and its timely topic (http://www.thenational.scot/politics/yes-activists-to-call-for-seminar-to-plan-winning-strategy.9520 )

349Trade Union Bill Parliamentary Lobby

Lobby and rally, Protect the Right to Strike.Central Hall, Westminster, London. The Trade Union Congress (TUC) and union members from all over the UK are coming together to lobby and rally against the trade union bill currently proposed by the government, which threatens the basic right to strike. This is a big opportunity to make sure MPs hear directly from people who are worried that the bill will undermine the right to strike and risk public safety and service quality. Trade Union representatives will meet up at Central Hall in Westminster to hear some inspirational speakers, and then in groups head off to the House of Commons to meet their MPs and explain why they should vote against the bill. The rally will kick off at 1pm and the lobby at 2.30pm.
