David Cameron to shut down social communication in the UK & gives more power to police to fight back; A call to action
Matt Gratz, Political Fail Blog
Social media has become known for it’s vital role in the revolutions that sprang up across the middle east. As the wave of revolutionary energy washes over the planet, thanks to Internet collectives such as ‘Anonymous’ and social networking sites like Facebook & Twitter, everyday regular people like me are able to communicate ideas & goals with thousands of people across the globe in an instant.
David Cameron speaking with the other rulers of the land has announced that the police should have more (absolute) power to fight back against the angry citizens rather than listen to them and work to fix the real issues. He proposes that the government shut down/block social networking sites to stem the free flow of information, so that people will not be able to communicate. This is a tactic used in war time situations.
“Free flow of information can be used for good, but it can be also used for ill. So, we are working with the police, the intelligence services and industry to look at rather it would be right to stop people communicating via these websites and services when we know they are plotting violence, disorder and criminality,” Cameron said following loud grunts in agreement from the chamber.
What this man is proposing is to give police complete power to do what ever is “needed” to stop these kids from rising up. They do not want people wearing face masks because the anonymity the masks provides allows people to act out of character and gives them the confidence to fight back.Cameron is basically saying, “Hey Anonymous, FUCK YOU and everything you stand for!”
Something we all need to think about now, is if we should allow our governments to have control over our communication in any circumstance. Just because the government does not want to deal with the issues at hand, they are deciding to crush those who are brave enough to take major action against the authoritarian structures we all claim to hate so much.
Obviously anyone who reads PFB regularly knows that what is happening today in London is the exact thing we have all been discussing for almost a year now. (Maybe not for the same reasons people expected, but it is happening now and there is no denying that.) We knew eventually when the shit hit the fan, the governments would first try to take out lines of communication. That is about to happen in the UK.
Is this the reason some of you were looking for to get on bored with these kids? The British government has drawn the lines in the sand and now it is time to decide which side you stand on. This does not mean that you need to go out in the streets and smash windows and burn cars, but it does mean that you need to go out into the streets and do something to express your unappreciative attitude towards the government shutting down your Internet. You all know the saying, “When the government shuts down the Internet, Shut down the government.”
This can be the perfect time for the masses to come together in the UK in peaceful resistance. The ground work has been laid out, the kids have sparked a major reaction from the government, so now go out and complete what they started in a peaceful non-violent way, if possible. We already know that some members of parliament support having armed forces come into town to “crush” this uprising, so be careful and do not commit acts of physical violence against other people.
“It is the government’s responsibility to make sure that every future contingency is looked at, including whether there are tasks that the army could undertake that might free up more police for the front line,” Cameron announced during an emergency parliamentary session.
Get your masks, your signs, your tents and your supplies (food/water) to last a few days and head out into the streets! If the people who want change in that country really want to send a strong message to the Queen and her parasitic family, let this be your foot in the door. Or you can just let the troops come in and set the standard for all future protests and uprisings in the country. It is in the hands of the people now.
We are a civilized society for the most part, but we all have that internal animal instinct to be free and to oppose the illusionary boundaries set to hinder our freedom and development as a species. It is time to set ourselves free from the rule of a few men and women, and decide for ourselves how to live this life.
