The UK Indymedia website is to be archived

Open publishing was disabled on this site in mid-July 2016 as there was a very low volume of original grass roots news reports from activists being posted and the collective running the site was dwindling as people were working on other things.

#ANTIFA: #TEDDYBEARS #PICNIC @slatukip @dubdanu @siegfails @misscheeky666 @JLRFB

LESS THAN thirty brazen little crybabies escaped the clutches of mummy and daddy to parked their prams in Hyde Park for their annual Teddybears Trump Picnic, whilst policemen in riot gear stood guard for the nasty big bogeymen from the UAF, who had threatened to turn up and spoil the fun of the little Angels and cherubs of the EDL's Hitler Pre-School Division. Sealed off in a secluded part of the park, crouching on a bed of used condoms and dog dirt, when the policemen's backs were turned, several several wee nationalists got up to mischief, squatting down, emptying their diapers onto the grass. Several nationalist babies worse for wear, slipped face-first on faeces, proving a welcome diversion to the monotony of the same old tired and worn speeches.

Ambulance Targeting Was Based On Turkish Disinformation

It was an American-made helicopter abusing the name of a First Nations tribe which penetrated Syrian territory coming from Golan late June, in bright daylight approached a nameless Czech-made ambulance car, and fired a B7EV type air-to-ground missile killing a patient plus other inmates en route to a civilian hospital. One of many, too many casualties in a foreign-policy-fuelled war, it seemed, far too little a scandal to stand out among the daily dead – but now evidence leaked via the Alternative Intelligence Review site that this particular attack was triggered by Turkish surveillance authorities providing their Israeli counterparts with fake intelligence it would have been a senior Hamas operative wounded by insurgent snipers while seeking diplomatic contact with the Assad government. Yet instead Telaviv assassinated a Mongolian deli owner seeking stroke treatment. <br/>

What is Grybauskaite silent about?

As early as the beginning of the first presidential term, at the meeting with members of Lithuanian National Security and Defence Committee, Dalia Grybauskaite took up the question of making public materials, stored in the archives and connected with the activities of KGB and other secret services, worked in Lithuania. "Lustration has to be finished by 2012", stressed the President.

New Dogmatic



This painting is looking to Christianity, Catholicism and the Church of England - all religions that have spread from the words of Jesus.
The intent of this work is to question dogmatic notions of religion focusing on parents who force their children to follow their own religion. I’m curious to thoughts if this practice was made illegal, would the religions of the land dissolve away after a few generations? After all Professor Dawkins has proved once a child is indoctrinated in a rigorous religious upbringing it is difficult for the child to critically think beyond their original initial dogmatic education; a form of brainwashing? The Crow represents the dark side to this painting as the manipulation of power over others.
I did not want to appear Christian bashing, I believe there are many positive aspects of the religion, and the unquestioned life after all is a life in ignorance. I think to the Bible and there are many positive ideas and notions presented. I have represented these as the leaf cutting ants climbing up the scaffold crucifix towards the child.
I have also added ants carrying an Apple Mac, I wanted to show how consumerism, especially Apple have their products presented in their shops as items worthy of worship. Look at the altarpiece display tables, the lighting and how they help create frenzy when opening there stores. I also like the connotations of the Apple and the Garden of Eden associations to this piece; perhaps technology is the new Garden of Eden, but this also presents us with problematic dilemmas… shall we indulge completely in the apple? Or shall we just eat it when were in need of one of our five a day? Questions into the overuse of technology over spiritual pursuits and addictions into this new fast expanding technology.
