Police Trolls fake Social Media Accounts – How to Spot them

tumblr_o4ae4yvWfO1rveni1o1_500   Police departments around the world have taken predictive crime prevention to a new level by building fake user accounts, as well as posing as genuine people to gather incriminating information.

Authorities are n ow harvesting CCTV data to calculate your “threat score.”
Authorities are now also ‘harvesting’ CCTV data to calculate your “threat score.”

Local agents put on a “digital mask” and pose as “members of the community,” allowing them to gather personal information about suspects their programs  consider to have a high ‘threat rating’.

#NuitDebout occupies Paris. March 51 marks 20th day of mass protest siege.

By Eric Verlo   NOT MY TRIBE – 4/19/2016


NUIT DEBOUT started as a protest against the weakening of labor protections. It’s grown since March 31 into a pan European movement driven by students who resume daily protests every night at six.

What’s being lauded as a Paris Spring is also being likened to Occupy Wall Street because the assemblies have no leaders nor do they make any demands. They do present an ultimatum. The month of April will not begin until economic policies are reformulated.

Until then the Nuitdeboutistes are counting successive days against March, not April, so today is March 51. If you think mainstream media is ignoring #DemocracySpring it’s unanimously mum about this spontaneous uprising spreading across French cities and European capitols.

Shock: Monsanto could lose Europe Glyphosate Battle

”All in all this is adding up to a refreshing popular revolt against the GMO death industry. Hooray for those of us who wish to live”.
protect the people

by  F. William Engdahl       Last month three EU member states unexpectedly refused to go along with the decision of the EU Health and Food Safety Commissioner and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) to re-approve the world’s most widely used weed killing chemical, Glyphosate.
This dramatic and encouraging developments suggest that for the first time the power of GMO agrochemical giants like Monsanto and Syngenta, Dow and DuPont, BASF, Bayer could undergo a devastating defeat.
Were this to happen, it could well be the death knell for the misbegotten Rockefeller Foundation Genetic Manipulation project that has destroyed much of Western farmland and poisoned hundreds of millions of GMO fed farm animals and humans.

Riot Resistance and ‘Nuit Debout’ movement: Both are Brilliant!

 ‘Nuit Debout’ and  anarchist ideas on democracy

 Convergence of The Struggles!

text from Crimethinc with thanks.      The wave of rebellion unleashed in France in response to the El-Khomri labour law has been impressive. The fighting spirit and political acuity shown by many of those blockading their colleges, blocking the railway lines, looting supermarkets and distributing the goods, attacking police stations, and  disseminating tracts against work itself is beautiful. But since 31st March, a new, friendlier-looking trend has emerged alongside the riots.  On that night, people responded to a call for a ‘Nuit Debout’ (night on your feet) to occupy something after the day’s demos.Paris

 In Paris it led to a large and continuous occupation of Place de la Republique. People had discussions, partied, and even prevented the eviction of Stalingrad migrant camp (note: the camp at Stalingrad is populated by several hundred refugees, many of whom have fled police harassment and eviction in Calais, and it & other migrant squats in the city have has been evicted at least 18 times(!) since last June). The occupations grew in size and spread rapidly over France and into Belgium and Spain.

original_570149dd15eb1While Nuit Debout is a heterogenous movement without a particularly distinct identity, it is clear from its statements and the rhetoric coming from the Paris occupation that it is a populist, wavey-hand type citizen movement that emphasises its non-violent and legal nature, sees neoliberalism as the main problem, and set its sights on real democracy.

comment: typical sour grapes comment by some old lefty, the same  type of rejection by anarchists happened with the indignados movement at first, then most  jumped on board as it became the best opportunity to illustrate and develop our ideas in a generation.

Huge Sun Tax outlaws use of Solar Energy in Spain

while the world is finally waking up to the climate emergency Spanish politicians are cashing in by running the other way

Thousands of Solar Installations Illegal from 11th Aprilsun tax

Eco and social organizations sent a letter to the caretaker government pleading for a delay to the Royal Decree against photovoltaic installations . What’s worse, in order to figure out who is producing what level of energy (and, of course, how much to tax it), all solar panels will have to be hooked up to the grid by 11th April.
“This law is like producing your own tomatoes and being forced to pay the supermarket 100 times over because you didn’t buy theirs’
Energy producers who don’t connect to the grid could face a fine of up to 30 million euros ( yes, seven zeros!). As Forbes reports, the intention is clear: to scare taxpayers into connecting to the grid in order to be taxed.
The same organizations have repeatedly denounced interests who have acted under recent governments and known as “revolving doors”. Currently, more than 43 political ex leaders of the main PSOE and PP  are in the pay of the Spanish electricity multinational.soria

The Royal Decree 900/2015, approved by Mariano Rajoy is a law against solar energy which illegalizes 50 thousand auto-producers of photovoltaic energy for their own consumption. The decree of the PP is the most restrictive in the world, with an impossible deadline  of April 11th 2016 for the autoconsumers to remake their installations so the huge punitive  taxes can be deducted according to the new law.

International Call for Nuit Debout Solidarity

Nuit Debout, paris, france, occupy

France -Since massive mobilizations swept the nation on March 31st against proposed Labor legislation, thousands of people have held nightly occupy style public assemblies coined ‘Nuit Debout’ or Night Stand to further a movement that has grown into a full-on rejection of the current systems of governance.


 

  1. RT : Foto de está tarde. Tomemos Europa!


The Nuit Debout public assemblies released the following statement.   (List of demo’s scheduled for Saturday below)

Our mobilization was initially aimed at protesting against the French Labour Law. This reform is not an isolated case, since it comes as a new piece in the austerity measures which already affected our European neighbors and which will have the same effects as the Italian Job Acts or the Reforma Laboral in Spain. This concretely means more layoffs, more precarity, growing inequalities and the shaping of private interests. We refuse to suffer this shock strategy, notably imposed in the context of an authoritarian state of emergency.

The debates taking place in the assemblies on Republic square prove that the general exasperation goes way beyond the Labour Law and opens a more global issue: the reconsideration of a social and political system stuck into a deep crisis and on its way out. We will not be the ones crying because of its end.

This movement was not born and will not die in Paris. From the Arab Spring to the 15M Movement, from Tahrir Square to Gezi park, Republic square and the plenty of other places occupied tonight in France are depicting the same angers, the same hopes and the same conviction: the need for a new society, where Democracy, Dignity and Liberty would not be hollow shells.

Supporting testimonies received from abroad warm us and strengthen our commitment. This movement is yours too. It has no limit, no border and it belongs to all of those who wish to be part of it. We are thousands, but we can be millions. Together, standing, awake. Let’s rise up together.

Nuit debout protesters occupy French cities in revolutionary call for change

from The Guardian   For more than a week, vast nocturnal gatherings have spread across France in a citizen-led movement that has rattled the government4899018_6_bbfc_des-manifestants-discutent-entre-eux-le-8_ff15974e6ec4ff1e198a3632ed7a6511 in Paris     As night fell over Paris, thousands of people sat cross-legged in the vast square at Place de la République, taking turns to pass round a microphone and denounce everything from the dominance of Google to tax evasion or inequality on housing estates.

The debating continued into the early hours of the morning, with soup and sandwiches on hand in the canteen tent and a protest choir singing revolutionary songs.

One of the demands is the repeal of the Jobs Law approved last week

A handful of protesters in tents then bedded down to “occupy” the square for the night before being asked to move on by police just before dawn. But the next morning they returned to set up their protest camp again.
