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.

The Goddess of Good Hope

This Painting is looking to starvation in third world countries and the idea of using insects as a renewable source of protein.

I like playing with clichéd images and adapting these and pushing them a little further. I do believe there is real truth in clichéd images. Here I refer to the skulls in the babies eyes as a metaphor for death.
The Beetle, seen as a worshipped/sacred insect in many cultures. Mainly the Scarab, but here I used the Stag as visually, it to me seems, the most impressive of the beetles, its powerful jaws represent a real ephemeral power.
One of its legs pointing at the Cape of Good Hope represents the theme of the painting, a chance of renewed hope in this insect food ideology.

Good. Now please stop digging.

Comment by JANPOLJAN on December 19, 2011 at 2:28

Thanks for the suggestion and wish, but my art flourished, because I'm part of it and my understanding of politics can not return to the past ("History repeats itself first as tragedy, then as farce"). And I would like to stay in the group. Thank you very much!

May your art flourish Janpoljan and your understanding of politics improve. Might  I suggest it is more likely to do so if you don't leave this group. I have no wish to see you go.

How do I leave this group?
