Rage


Click on Pic to enlarge.
here are the  132 Children killed in Gaza by Israel's Operation Protective Edge.
More  details here.:- http://bit.ly/1yYwLy9

Finding  it increasingly  hard to quell my rage. It is not healthy. Who will bury the children when their parents are already dead and  there is nobody to bury them. Who will kill the sniper that kills those children of the parents that are already dead? Who is goin to mourn them? I will. Who will forgive? Not me. I have so much to say, but nobody seem to be listening. It is beginning to really  is anybody listening. This pain is really starting to hurt.
I guess I need to take a deep, deep breath and then  continue to keep pushing.

All born equal?

 
As the Royal family-  and its cheerleaders at the BBC celebrate Prince George's  First Birthday... the above is just a reminder about what has already been said. As people celebrate, remember too the children  dying across the world because of hunger and starvation, the children  currently being killed by genocidal repression. The BBC continues its fawning, bring out their sycophantic royal slime  Mr Nicholas  Witchell,  not a pretty picture, why are not the people revolting.  laters..off in search of a sick bag.

Every walk to the woods is a religious right - John Burroughs ( 3/4/1837 - 29/3/1921)


" Every walk to the woods is a religious right, every bath in the stream  is a saving ordinance. Communion service  is at all hours, and the bread and the wine  are from the heart and  marrow of Mother Earth. There are no heretics in Natures church, all are communicants. The beauty of natural   religion  is that you have it all the time;  you  do not  have  to seek it afar off  in myths and legends; in catacombs, in  garbled texts; in miracles of dead saints  or wine-bibbing friars. It is of today; it  is now and here; it is everywhere."

- John Burroughs :- American naturalist, reprinted from essays in Naturalism 1920

You are a Prisoner of your own mind.



" The church, the state, the school, the magazine, think they are liberal and free !

It is the  freedom of a prison yard."

- Henry David Thoreau

(12/7/1817 - 5/5/1862)

If Israel Bombed Your Home, What Would You Do?



A weeklong bombing campaign by Israel has pushed Gaza's biggest hospital  to the brink - beds filled with the critically injured, the wails of relatives filling  the air and supplies running short. Because of Israels military campaign the civilian death toll is rising. In many cases no warning, as peoples homes destroyed, innocents killed. A sea of bodies children killed whilst sleeping in their beds. If this happened to you, would you not resist, defend yourself?
In  Israels case in open violation of international law, carry on their mission to destroy, business as usual as they blame victims.
Last night, Israel launched a ground invasion of Gaza. At  the time of writing 250 Palestinians have been killed, many of them women and children.
We need to tell our  government to stop this  atrocity now, join the demo tomorrow, and spread  the word to anyone you know that enough is enough. Thousands will be marching  from Downing Street  to the Israeli Embassy, in a demonstration organised  by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Friends  of Al-Asqa, CND, The British Muslim initiative, Stop the War Coalition, Palestine Forum in Britan and  the Muslim Association of Britain. It is also supported by an unprecedented alliance of faith organisations, Trade Unions,  civil society and Peace organisations.
Tell your M.P  to act now,  my own Mark Williams M.P for Ceredigion  has already written to me  expressing his condemnation of the collective punishment of the Palestinian people.http://act.palestinecampaign.org/lobby/crisisaction/,
The media must be forced to tell  the truth  about what is happening in Gaza, even though over 5,000 people protested outside the BBC  HQ earlier this week  their coverage of  the ground invasion has been business as usual. We must  keep up the pressure, and confront the BBC's bias. Israels siege and occupation of Gaza must end. Acoss the world people want justice, peace and freedom for the Palestinians.

I'm tired, but not not quitting yet.


Sometimes just opening your eyes in the morning is the most painful thing you could ever do,
but from our hearts dark  secrets off the soul have to be  released,
even when the sun shines,  their is a realisation that somewhere outside,
their are thousands suffering constantly more than we can ever realise.
People constantly tired because their  hopes daily are taken away with tyranny,
with weary hands  some of us reach for pen,
because  bad behaviour often makes us tired of waiting,
so now is the time to get rid of  greed and oppression,
to awaken  thoughts of gladness, to blossom  fragility,
the lack of sympathy and empathy that governs our lands.
I'm tired of waiting, for people to awake,
but if your listening world,
I'm not giving up yet,
so will hang around now
wait for some change.

How to do an online BBC Complaint


Noam Chomsky, John Pilger and Ken Loach are among more than 40,000 signatories who have signed an open letter to the B.B.C calling on its journalists to reflect  the reality of Gazas occupation while reporting on Israels current assault.
MPs have also  signed the letter  which will be delivered to the B.B.C today (15 July) during a protest  outside its  Portland Place,  London  headquarters.

See http://www.palestinecampaign.org/chomsky-pilger-loach-call-bbc-reflect-reality-gazas-occupation/

Please keep signing and sharing this
http://www.palestinecampaign.org/sign-open-letter-bbc/


A lot of people  are not very familiar with doing online complaints to  the BBC. Really quite simple, and quite effective, for those unable to get to demonstrations that the BBC does not deem important to cover.
They have a statutory duty to reply to complaints to protect the so called independence of the BBC. Sometimes watching the BBC news I have to awake myself  up from the utter pointless of it all. Fawning excuses for News about  Royal  family, minus their excesses.  They used to say it had a left wing bias, I only see a right wing drift. If we don't complain nothing will change.

( I have used below  the Today programme as an example.
