Are you ready for martial law?
It has been said that truth is the first casualty of war. No truer words have been said. Daily, we are subjected to false stories, embedded journalism and propaganda from governments that justify the war on Iraq, and their never ending “war on terrorism.” Little room is available in the media and even in the peace movement to counter the presumptions of the State in this new permanent war.
The bombings in London are used as justification to restrict civil liberties in both the U.S and Britain. In fact, immediately after the bombings, Congress renewed the Patriot Act. British intelligence recently murdered Jena Charles de Menezes, an electrician, under a newly minted “shoot to kill” policy. Why?
Moreover, on Monday August 8th, the Washington Post reported the Pentagon has developed plans for extensive operations within the continental United States, in which terrorist attacks would be used as justification for imposing martial law on cities, regions or the entire country. Do you remember the Pentagon directive, as reported by the Los Angeles Times on October 27, 2002, creating the “Preemptive, Proactive Operations Group” in which elite military units will foment terrorist incidents in order to “flush them out”? How do these stories coincide?
Please join Ralph and Mya as they deconstruct the official story of the London Bombings, 911, and the “war on terror” and detail the effects of these polices and events on the economic lives of ordinary Americans. The facts and fictions of these policies and events will be exposed through documentation from a multitude of mainstream media articles and sources and the analysis that holds their radio audiences riveted on a weekly basis.
This is truly too important of an event to miss. I look forward to seeing you on the 31st.
