The puppeteers were working for Títeres Desde Abajo (‘Puppets from Below’)

Madrid ~ Two anarchist from the CNT who performed a “puppet show” were detained yesterday afternoon. They had been invited by Madrid city hall to perform a puppet show for the kids for the week of Carnival, in one part of this puppet show they put out a banner thatg says “Gora Alka-ETA” which has double meanings.
If you put “Gora ALKAETA” without a dash it could be saying “viva the mayor”(mayor in euskera is alkateta), but if you put it with dash it shows up as viva “ETA” (which is recognized as the ex Basque guerrilla group).The signs included the made-up word ‘alka’, also creating a slogan involving a play on words to sound like “Long Live al-Qaeda”. So the parent at the puppet show were “shocked”(as they were described) and they right away called the police to complain that this puppet show was “supporting and promoting Terrorism”.
Also they were complaining that the puppet show encouraged the kids “to occupy an empty house”.
Now these 2 comrades are charged with “Apología del terrorimso” which means they openly promoting and advocating terrorism, and could be sentenced 1 to 2 years in prison.
Their Facebook psge describes the puppet show….“Disguised with different faces, Don Cristóbal will try to crush a good witch, but she loves her freedom above all and will not to be trampled by anyone.”
We found a lawyer for the comrades, but they still detained.

“The wounded are confined in a tight space along with those who have died,” Sariyildiz said, pointing out that he had been in contact with the basement’s occupants via text messages. Leyla Birlik, HDP legislator for Sirnak province, which the embattled town of Cizre is part of, confirmed that the bodies of the dead had not been removed.

Police have found a new way to legally incorporate surveillance and profiling into everyday life. Just when you thought we were making progress raising awareness surrounding police brutality, we have something new to contend with. The Police Threat Score isn’t calculated by a racist police officer or a barrel-rolling cop who thinks he’s on a TV drama; it’s a computer algorithm that steals your data and calculates your likelihood of risk and threat for the fuzz.

I really wanted to avoid this one when I first became aware of the tale on Social Media. I got the jist of it, an artist got £15 grand worth of funding for remaining in Glasgow for a year. I just didn’t care. Even if I was to find out that all she intended to do with the money was use it as a procurement and delivery method for cocaine, I would barely bat an eyelid. After the banking bailout and some recent political wage increases, I have a high threshold when it comes to getting angry about public money being wasted on the wrong people.
In fact I have a high anger threshold about everything nowadays. I have become slowly desensitised over the years with the drip, drip, drip of countless terrors that used to get me apoplectic. Malnourished black babies with bluebottles crawling over their bulbous bellies, limbless Muslim children being carried away from the remains of a freshly bombed kindergarten, burning corpses falling from the creaking remnants of the Twin Towers, the melted, contorted faces of Pakistani housewives who have embarrassed their tribe so badly that a battery acid facial was the only honourable solution.

by Tyler Durden….. If ever there was a clearer indication of America’s “need for war” it was the latest Durable Goods orders data, which confirmed, absent defense spending, the US economy is in a tail-spin. However, as NYTimes reports, foreign arms sales by the United States jumped by almost $10 billion in 2014, about 35 percent, even as the global weapons market remained flat and competition among suppliers increased, thanks to multibillion-dollar agreements with Qatar, Saudi Arabia and South Korea.
Defense Spending New Orders has soared 148% in the last 3 months… the biggest rise since 2007
But it is the US arms sales to foreigners that is really flourishing.Despite a stagnant international weapons market and increased competition among suppliers, American foreign weapons receipts rose from $26.7 billion to $36.2 billion last year. According to a new congressional report, as The NY Times reports…
The United States remained the single largest provider of arms around the world last year, controlling just over 50 percent of the market.
