30 years ago today- Battle of Beanfield





Lest we forget. 30 years ago today the
Battle of the Beanfield took place over several hours on the afternoon
of Saturday 1 June 1985 when Wiltshire Police prevented a vehicle convoy
of several hundred new age travellers, known as "The Convoy" and
referred to in the media as the "Peace Convoy" from setting up at the
11th Stonehenge Free Festival at Stonehenge in Wiltshire, England


"Basically the police were extremely violent and beat up men and women
with children." The whole reason that the government was so eager to
stop the festival was the law which stated that "after 12 years of
gathering in the same place of celebration a national event
automatically came into being" and as a national event they would have
been unable to prevent it from occurring again in the future".

BBC admits breaching its own rules by broadcasting pro-Israel propaganda

A BBC investigation has found that one of its senior presenters, Sarah Montague, breached the organization’s editorial standards on impartiality in a radio interview she conducted with Israeli defense minister Moshe Yaalon in March.
The investigation was carried out following allegations of pro-Israel bias against Montague’s interview by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) and a number of concerned individuals who complained to the BBC.
The ruling against Montague is the second time in recent months that the BBC has upheld a complaint initiated by the PSC.

In the first ruling, the BBC’s Editorial Complaints Unit (ECU) agreed with complainants that an online BBC article about Gaza’s tunnels had breached the organization’s accuracy guidelines by presenting its pro-Israel author, Eado Hecht,  as an “independent” defense analyst.
The two ECU rulings highlight just how often the BBC provides an unchallenged platform to Israel’s spokespeople.

Montague’s interview with Yaalon on the current affairs radio program Today was shocking in that a supposedly impartial journalist remained completely silent as the defense minister told lie after lie on air, including the outrageous claim that “the Palestinians enjoy already political independence … And we are happy with it.”
In his first response to complainants, George Mann, assistant editor of Today, wrote via email: “I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy Sarah Montague’s interview with Moshe Yaalon … Having listened back [to the interview], I feel she challenged him well.”

How Newspapers produced the War of the Worlds myth

On October 30, 1938, from the Mercury Theater in New York City, Orson Welles broadcasted a “modernized” radio play of H.G. Wells’ (no relation) 1898 novel “War of the Worlds.” For the last three quarters of the century, we’ve been told that this fictionalized CBS broadcast sent Americans into a panic; that citizens across the country did not realize that this was  science-fiction (despite the fact that it was explicitly stated at the beginning and twice during the broadcast) and thought the USA was under attack from an invading Martian army.  Littered with realistic simulated news reports and “eyewitness accounts,” the hour long broadcast was innovative and an extremely entertaining way to present the story.



So, how did the “The radio broadcast of War of the Worlds created mass hysteria” myth get perpetuated? In short, the media. Newspaper headlines across the country gave the impression that panic gripped the nation: “Radio Fake Scares Nation,” read the Chicago Herald and Examiner; “Fake Radio War Stirs Terror Through US,” was reported in the New York Daily News (accompanied with a picture of a frightened man and a woman with an arm sling whose caption read “war” victim.); “Terror by Radio,” could be found in a New York Times editorial.
The newspaper industry had quite a bone to pick with the new medium of radio. As W. Joseph Campbell of American University wrote in the BBC News magazine in 2011 (for the 73rd anniversary of the broadcast), “…the so-called ‘panic broadcast’ brought newspapers an exceptional opportunity to censure radio, a still-new medium that was becoming a serious competitor in providing news and advertising.”
That same New York Times editorial with the inflammatory headline had this to say about its new competitor, “Radio is new but it has adult responsibilities. It has not mastered itself or the material it uses.”
Additionally, the newspapers also wanted to sell papers and what better way to do that than using words like “terror” or “panic” or “war.” Using anecdotal and scattered stories, they made it seem like many citizens were ready to bear arms against the alien invaders, but in truth those stories were either very few and far between or in some cases completely made up. According to law enforcement and hospital documentation from the night in question, there were no reports of people taking to the streets with guns, no one taken to the hospital on the account of the radio broadcast, and no known person committing suicide as a result of the broadcast.

BREAKING THE FRAME 2: Second Gathering on the Politics of Technology

BREAKING THE FRAME 2: Second Gathering on the Politics of Technology
July 9-12 2015, Unstone Grange, Derbyshire
Organised by CorporateWatch, Scientists for Global Responsibility, Luddites200 and others

Come to Breaking The Frame 2 for a fresh conversation on the politics of technology. Join us in July for 3 days of workshops and campaign planning, plus music, food by Veggies, walking in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside, hands-on activities and more

We live in a world dominated by technology and by systems created by technical experts. So whether it's where your food and energy comes from or if there is a right to privacy, almost everything in life is profoundly shaped by those technologies. Technologies do bring some genuine benefits, but because their design is almost entirely controlled by corporate and military technical elites, they tend to reinforce corporate power and destroy the environment. Breaking The Frame is based on the idea that everyone has the right to take part in decisions about technology, and that is crucial to creating an economically just and sustainable society.

There will be panels on basic technology politics/technocracy, democratic control of technology, alternative technology and the transition to an economically just and sustainable society.

Workshops run by leading campaign groups will focus on the technology politics of food, the workplace, privacy/policing, gender, energy, health, militarism, mining/infrastructure, etc.

Last year's gathering was supported by more than 20 organisations. Whether you're a technology politics campaigner, trade unionist, environmentalist, critical scientist, developer of alternative technology, artist or plain concerned citizen, Breaking the Frame is not to be missed.

Booking: places are limited, so you'll need to book in advance. We aim to ensure that no-one is excluded for reasons of cost.

For those who are travelling from London, a group will taking the 12.58pm train from St Pancras on Thursday 9th - we'd love you to join us.

How corporations control the media

Here is a perfect example of how corporations can and do control what gets broadcast.

The UK’s largest commercial radio group, Global Radio, advised its stations, which include Classic FM, Capital and LBC, to drop the HSBC tax story on the morning the story broke for “editorial reasons”.

Global, which broadcasts to about 23 million listeners a week, advised its stations not to run reports about the banking giant after it was revealed that the bank’s Swiss subsidiary helped wealthy customers dodge taxes and conceal millions of dollars in assets.
Its stations, which also include the Heart, Smooth, Xfm and Gold networks, were told by the company’s management to drop the HSBC story from about 8.45am on 9 February, the day the story broke.

The Daily Telegraph’s coverage of the HSBC story became the focus of attention following the resignation of its chief political commentator Peter Oborne, claiming the paper had deliberately suppressed stories about the banking giant and describing it as a “fraud on its readers”.
In response the Telegraph said it had made an editorial decision not to pursue the story despite it being covered extensively by most of its rivals and broadcasters.

Police brutality caught on camera

Once again citizens have relied upon their own footage to show just how brutal police are increasingly becoming.

A mobile phone video released on Tuesday shows police in Indiana, USA breaking a car window and using a stun gun on a man inside after stopping the driver for not wearing a seatbelt.

The video, recorded by the driver’s 14-year-old son, captured the 24 September confrontation between two adults in the car and police that is the basis of a lawsuit filed in the US district court against several officers and the Indiana city of Hammond.

Talk Talk screw up their Digital Hero Awards 2014.

What voters now see when they try to vote in Digital Hero awards

Last week I was short listed as one of three nominees in the Talk Talk Digital Hero awards for my work in Sol Cinema. The prize is £5000. Since then the awards appear to have collapsed in disaster.

On August 22nd 2014,Talk Talk announced all the shortlisted nominees and opened the voting. So I and all the other nominee began publicizing the awards across social media to gather public votes. Here are Tweets from some of the nominees below-


Just days later Leanne Barnes, a communication Executive at Talk Talk sends all the nominees a bizzare email out stating;

'The announcement of the shortlisted nominees and the start of the Voting Phase has been postponed until the 1st September.'

On August 25th all the information about the nominees and the awards and the public voting is deleted. No mention of what is going on, so now all the people we are driving towards that URL get a blank page instead with the statement;

'This is somewhat embarrassing, isn’t it?'

The simple answer to that is Yes- it is very embarrassing.

The South Wales Evening Post is running a feature on me being nominated in tomorrows newspaper. How embarrassing will it be when their readers try to Vote for me?

How did Talk Talk manage to create such a mess.
Was it a technical fault?
Was it someone jumping the gun and opening the voting too early?

Protest outside CNN against unfair reporting



Protesters gathered outside the CNN center in Atlanta on Monday to march in memory of unarmed Missouri teenager Michael Brown who was gunned down by a police officer, many in protest of CNN’s controversial coverage of the incident.

Demonstrators who had been urged to attend dressed in their “Sunday’s best” marched under the slogan: “How good must we look to be considered innocent?” and used the #ItsBiggerThanYou hashtag.

The protest was staged in response to CNN’s Ferguson protests coverage, which had a strong emphasis on past actions by Brown which may have incriminated him. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, as many as 1,000 protesters marched.

The killing of the likely unarmed Ferguson teenager, who was shot by white police officer Darren Wilson, has attracted thousands of protesters to the streets of Ferguson for days, despite an initial curfew and heavy tactical police and National Guard presence.

On Sunday evening, a confrontation between a police officer and a member of the media was caught on tape where the officer allegedly pointed a gun at the reporter, telling him to Get the f**k out of here.”

Swansea Campus construction shut down by anti Fracking activists

Earlier this morning, I filmed campaigners from Reclaim the Power shut down the Swansea Bay campus of Swansea University. The research at Swansea’s Energy Safety Research Institute will be focused on long-term ‘strengths’ in petroleum and chemical processing – particularly fracking. The primary collaborator will be BP. ITV Wales used mine and Zoe Broughtons footage of the action for the news.
The video I edited (below) is running on the Evening Post website alongside their article about the protest.




There are two protestors locked on, one up a tripod and a number of the group are inside the site and have dropped a banner which says ‘No Fracking’. Outside the site the banner reads ‘Dim Ffracio’. The protesters were angered by tens of millions of public money being funnelled into research on fracking via Swansea University’s new Energy Safety Research Institute.

Swansea University is currently building a second campus and innovation park on land previously used by BP, who gifted it to the university. Funding for the project was made available by the Welsh Government.

Local TV is collapsing before it has even began

In 2011 I wrote about the future of local TV. I stated that it is the internet that will drive it, not having a license to broadcast to regular TVs via Freeview. My prediction is proving correct.

I watched local Oxford Channel collapse within 2 years and watched in amusement at various companies creating half cocked plans of setting up local TV. Today it was announced that Birmingham’s City TV has become the first of Jeremy Hunt’s ambitious network of local TV stations to go bust.

Birmingham’s City TV  issued a “Business Lite Memo” which states that the business has “no studio premises or broadcast equipment”, despite having had almost two years to get the operation up and running. Yet another debacle. I believe that a local TV channel won't work due to being too broad a spectrum.
I think to gain traction, any broadcaster has to serve a particular community who are not being served already.

In London, the local TV channel has averaged only 2,400 viewers, out of the 9 million people to which it broadcasts.

The main mistake is that companies are trying to mimic the main broadcast channels but with their tiny budgets. They should be concentrating on creating something more roots based. Instead they hire people on £120k salaries who think mainstream and thus can only hope to replicate the mainstream.

There are many grassroots media groups working for real social change in their own areas. Bring these all together and we have a possibility of success.

Israel is a terrorist state.

Israel is a terrorist state.
 
Protest at BBC Bristol

There is no other way to describe a government who bombs children. Anyone who is hooked up on social media is seeing the real story of Israel's brutal attacks on Gaza. Children maimed or killed, schools blown apart, and unarmed civilians shot dead by snipers

The BBC is rarely showing the horror that is going on in Gaza, reporting as if this was 2 equal sides doing battle. The reality is that Palestine has no army, navy or airforce. While Israel in just one day this week used their warplanes and fired 182 missiles into Gaza, Israeli ships launched 146 shells into the territory, and Israeli tanks shot 721 shells, with all these attacks striking 66 structures and killing 107 Palestinians (including 35 children),

Each year, the United States gives Israel about $3.1 billion in military assistance.
To ensure BBC report the reality, activists are occupying BBC grounds outside the BBC in Whiteladies Road, Bristol BS8 2LR

What can you do to help Gaza?
Saturday 26th July – SECOND National Demonstration in London.
Coaches leave 8.30am from Shah Jahal Mosque, Stapleton Road, Bristol BS5 6PE. Tickets £12 (but no-one turned away for lack of funds).
