Londoners defy Zionist imperialism
British government fails to stop anti-war march
4,000 anti-war demonstrators marched from Trafalgar Square to the Houses of Parliament
British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, like his predecessor Tony Blair, is keen to pose as the champion of human rights from Basra to Burma. But when confronted on his own doorstep by determined opponents of Bush-Blair-Brown subservience to Israel, the Prime Minister suddenly seemed less keen on the freedom to protest.
London's Metropolitan Police used an archaic Victorian law from 1839 in an effort to ban the Stop the War Coalition's march on October 8th. This obscure statute banned protests within the environs of the Palace of Westminster while Parliament was in session - the very time when one would have thought it most appropriate to protest.
Observer columnist Henry Porter condemned Gordon Brown's hypocrisy
and joined the anti-war marchers
While most British journalists remained supine in the face of this assault on Britons' liberties, a brave few spoke out - including Observer columnist Henry Porter, who is also London editor of Vanity Fair magazine and (appropriately enough) author of Lies Damned Lies, a study of truthfulness in British journalism.
Mr Porter condemned Brown's hypocrisy and defended the proposed march, concluding:
I am sure that tomorrow there will be many who want to see how all this works, and find themselves in Parliament Square looking for a cup of tea. I hope so because, as I have said many times, we need constantly to remind this government of our rights.
We were pleased to see that Mr Porter, no armchair commentator, turned out on the march himself!
4,000 demonstrators heeded the call to remind the British government of our rights, and the Metropolitan Police (or rather their political masters) backed down to avoid the embarrassment of mass civil disobedience. More importantly they reminded our rulers that not all Britons' are prepared to tolerate our armed forces becoming the servants of Zionist imperialism. And perhaps most important of all, the broad coalition assembled for this Stop the War march included some who were prepared to make the connection between the attempted denial of our rights in London and the (so far) successful denial of basic human rights in European courts to others who confront the deceptions perpetrated by our rulers and their masters.

In Parliament Square, directly in front of the Houses of Parliament, Lady Michèle Renouf was approached by the German television station NDR. The NDR interviewer's first question (amid the din of chants and drums from the passing marchers) was why Lady Renouf had attended this event.
Lady Renouf replied: "The same Socratic right to uphold reason for which every year I attend your trials in Mannheim of non-violent prisoners of conscience like Ernst Zündel and Germar Rudolf, who are denied their right of free scientific enquiry and even imprisoned for expressing their rational opinions on real history versus propaganda myth. The proven lie of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction was brought to us by the very same myth-addling people who exact a veto on any other version of historical debate save their pro-Zionist version."
German reporters covering the London march were told that the Stop the War
march and the campaigns to free Ernst Zündel and Germar Rudolf are
part of the same cause, confronting the same enemy
The reporter suggested that was surely another subject, but Lady Renouf pointed out that clearly both were pro-Zionist deceptions linked to the same goal. Look at today's case at the Central Criminal Court of Jean Charles de Menezes, the innocent Brazilian shot dead by British police, and how we hear no more of the earlier boasting of the deadly fact that Israeli operatives are training and influencing our police in the Zionist shoot to kill policy.
Asked whether there was any difference between Blair and Brown in power, Lady Renouf said that both were clearly pro-Zionist rulers, as all British Prime Ministers have been since Disraeli.
"Do you hope that this demonstration will influence Prime Minister Brown?" the reporter asked. "No - I hope that it will influence our servicemen to stay at home. Already in World War II, on both sides, we lost too many brave men and women. Otherwise we would have millions more accompanying us bravely standing firm against pro-Zionist, Biblically aggressive influence. As Bertrand Russell (founder of CND which is the co-sponsor of today's march) said on his deathbed in 1970: 'Every [Israeli] expansion is an exercise to discover how much more aggression the world will tolerate.'"
Clearly surprised by some of the replies, the interviewer commented that Lady Renouf seemed very politically aware, so she pointed him in the direction of a fellow marcher, the webmaster of www.jailingopinions.com!
