#UK: Spycops Bill – the encroaching police state

UK. On the 27th of January, MPs voted 363 to 267 to remove restrictions put on the Covert Human Intelligence (Criminal Conduct) Sources Bill. Restrictions had been put on the bill by the House of Lords, these restrictions removed from the bill the legal right to commit serious crimes such as murder, torture and sexual offences and the disgusting use of vulnerable people and children as state operatives, ensuring that they are at grave risk. The reversal of these restrictions means that the state (including the police, the National Crime Agency, MI5, the armed forces and Prison service) are now legally allowed to commit such crimes and abuses of human rights.

Madrid: A huge snowbattle and police charges [Video]

Madrid. January 9. 2021. Amazing images last night (January 9, 2021) in Madrid. There was a lot of snow in the Spanish capital, which was covered with a thick white blanket as is rarely the case. People took to the streets, and soon huge snowfights took place in the downtown area. The city became a big playground, and joy invaded the streets after a long period of gloom.

Quebec: A Critique of Emergency Measures that Remove Freedom of Assembly

Quebec. Canada. A lot has changed in the past year.

Manifesto for the abolition of the police

That the social function of the police is to maintain a certain world order, or a certain regime of domination, is an open secret. What continues to be less understood, however, is the lie upon which their existence depends, the greatest anthropological lie: that without their exercise of “legitimate” violence we would be incapable of giving each other common rules of life and would kill each other at the first opportunity. To put an end to the police is first and foremost to put an end to this infantilism. This is the aim of the following manifesto, published anonymously in France during the first phase of the George Floyd uprising in the U.S.
