G20 Toronto "Black Block" get green light to rampage?

By CanadiansNanaimo

A photo Journalist describes his experience following the black block as they rampage through the streets of Toronto during the G20 Summit.

20,000 police and security officials and a $1 billion security budget were not enough to stop 75-100 black block anarchists from smashing windows and torching police cars during a 1.5 hour rampage. The Black Block were able to rampage through the street for 24 blocks until they reached the ‘official protest zone’ where they quickly changed clothes dispersed through the crowd of peaceful protesters and then left the site.

The police were fully aware of the rampage and watched the black block from a distance at a number of locations. It wasn’t until they had dispersed into a crowd of peaceful protesters who thought that they were in a sanctioned area that the police took action beating innocent people with batons and spraying them with pepper spray.

Why was this allowed to happen? Police abandoned police cars at Bay and King when they didn’t need to, why? Was this allowed to happen so the Harper government could justify an outrageous security bill when there was no credible terrorist threat (according to CSIS)? Who led this group of vandals? Were they infiltrated by government paid provocateurs as was the case in Montebello where police with masks and rocks attacked their own riot squad?

G20 demo turns violent, police car burns

From: NineMSN.com.au

Black-clad demonstrators broke off from a crowd of peaceful protesters at the World Summit, torching a police cruiser in the financial district and smashing windows with baseball bats and hammers.

Police with shields and clubs earlier pushed back another small group of demonstrators who tried to head south toward the security fence surrounding the perimeter of the Group of Twenty global economic summit site. Some demonstrators hurled bottles at police.

Ontario’s provincial government quietly passed a regulation earlier this month allowing police to arrest anyone who refuses to show identification or submit to searches if they come within five metres of the security fence.

Toronto’s downtown core resembles a fortress, with a big steel and concrete fence erected along several blocks to protect the summit site.

WeAreChange Western Australia denounces the violence towards Toronto police and the vanadalism of property in the surrounding area near the G20 summit, by individuals clearly separate from the assembled peaceful protestors. This is not the Change we wish to see. Neither is the extremely expensive police state setup for the events for that matter.

Media Release – Prof Harritt to present Evidence that Explosives were Used to Bring Down the WTC Towers on 9/11

Download/print (PDF)

9/11 Truth Australia will host a public lecture by Danish Professor Niels Harrit from the University of Copenhagen, titled “Did Explosives Bring Down the Towers on 9/11?”

Professor Harrit is the lead author of an expert international team that produced a peer reviewed scientific paper published early last year, titled “Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe”. This paper, which has not been reported in this country to date, has remained unchallenged within the scientific literature and can be found online at the Open Chemical Physics Journal, Bentham Open (www.bentham.org).

The evening lecture will be given in two parts, the first being about the little known 47 story WTC building 7, titled “The Seventh Tower: A Mysterious Building Collapse”. The second part, concentrating on the discovery of nano-thermite, is titled “Scientists Discover Explosive Incendiary Nano-thermite in Dust from Ground Zero”. Harrit will be supported by a expert panel during his presentations, including Australians Dr. David Leifer, a senior Architecture lecturer at Sydney University and Dr Frank Legge, a chemist and 9/11 science expert who is co-editor at “the Journal of 9/11 Studies” and was also an author of the “Thermitic Materials” Paper.

Note: A Press Conference will be held at the venue starting at 6:30pm

Date:
7:00pm, Saturday, 17th July 2010.

Venue:
Mitchell Theatre,
Sydney Mechanics School of Arts

Afghanistan: Australian troop withdrawal 'could start in two years'

From: PerthNow

AUSTRALIAN troops could be out of Afghanistan as early as 2013 under a timeline which sees training of the Afghan National Army continuing for up to four years, followed by a period of security backup of the fledgling force.

In a week when three Australian soldiers died in a helicopter crash – taking the Australian death toll in the nine-year war to 16 – Defence Minister John Faulkner warned more losses could be ahead.

“But we must stay the course,” he said.

Liberal Democratic Party want tougher rules on war authorisation

From: Liberal Democratic Party

By Mark Walmsley, LDP WA President & Senate Candidate

Media Release

The Liberal Democrats believe former Army chief Peter Leahy’s calls for Parliament to decide when to send our troops to war do not go far enough.

“In the current system, the Prime Minister and executive can take the country to war. This threshold is too low and does not give the electorate a voice through their elected representatives,” Senate candidate Mark Walmsley said.

“The Liberal Democrats believe any commitment of our military should require a two-thirds majority vote of a joint sitting of Parliament.

“This will require every Senator and House Representative to vote on the war. In doing so citizens can make representations to their local member and will know how their local member and senator voted. This provides for true democratic accountability.

Since the initial Iraq engagement there have been two Federal elections, resulting in two new Parliaments taking office. However there has been no parliamentary review of the initial decision.

“The Liberal Democrats believe that following an election, all ongoing Australian military engagements should be re-affirmed as a priority by the new Parliament.

“Unless two-thirds of Parliamentarians vote to stay the course, plans should be drawn up for a prompt withdrawal,” Mr Walmsley said.

Mark Walmsley is president of the WA branch of the Liberal Democratic Party and the party’s candidate for the Senate.

WeAreChange Western Australia endorses the Australian Liberal Democrats call for a two-thirds majority vote by Parliament to authorise war, in particular the requirement for every new Parliament to vote on Australia’s military engagements.
