Steve and Anton get the boot hahahaha

In todays Torygraph it is revealed that ACC Anton Setchell has been retired and Superintendent Steve Pearl has been booted out of his leadership as head of NETCU though we are sure that there are many lucrative opportunities for them in the private sector making money on information about activists. It would seem that both are a little miffed about this and are throwing a hissy fit about how the government will regret it. However the Telegraph is THE Tory rag, betchya they’ll sex up the political police units whilst unashamedly slashing the child protection units. Paedophiles don’t threaten the state, we apparently do, we will have to wait and see.

NETCU, WECTU and NPOIU: Britain’s Secretive Police Force (PDF report)

Version 1, April 2009. Produced by the Free Range electrohippie Project
http://www.fraw.org.uk/ehippies/ ehippies@fraw.org.uk

The role of NETCU, WECTU and NPOIU –

The National Extremism Tactical Co-ordination Unit,
The Welsh Extremism and Counter Terrorism Unit, and
The National Public Order Intelligence Unit
– all parts of a private organisation (ACPO) that is exercising public functions in relation to policing policy
– can be seen from two extreme points of view:
groups working on policy and in a policing support role to protect the public; or,
under the guise of countering “extremism”, developing policies to crack down on campaigning groups in a way that could be seen as the kernel of what could eventually become a truly “secret” police force.
This report examines what NETCU, WECTU and NPOIU are, and poses the question as to whether private organisations working unaccountably outside of the mainstream police service are compatible with the operation of a free, open and accountable society.q02-

Help identify the cops who witnessed Ian Tomlinsons death.

Bristle have done a great photo breakdown of shots and video captures captured by activists and the mainstream media in order to bring those cops who were present during the unprovoked brutal attack on Ian Tomlinson which resulted in him having a heart attack and dying moments later.

National Anti Vivisection Society expose HLS cruelty and incompetence.

http://www.savetheprimates.org/files/stpreporten.pdf

To all those involved with this comprehensive, well researched, well written and damning report and accompanying film, the utmost respect especially the brave soul who was behind enemy lines for a whole year.

HLS workers are supposed to be these brave champions of science risking their lives, so the public are told, so that no-one need ever be ill or die again! The footage shot by the NAVs investigator shows three cowardly bullies tormenting a small macaque by pinning him down and forcing him to breathe in toxic fumes, others are shown in restraining devices which makes them look as though they are being crucified. These are the people who whine relentlessly about even polite letters to their employer they are mostly a worthless, pathetic, spineless, odious gang of thugs no better than those who torture animals for fun.

Imagine the following. HLS are so proud of their work they decide to set up a road show replicating experiments to the public. They pitch up and 3 workers grab a tiny screaming monkey from a cage, their victim is struggling and crying , they spread his tiny limbs spread eagle so he cannot move and then force a mask onto his face, as noxious fumes enter his helpless body his rectum prolapses in utter terror. What on earth do they think people would do? Pat them on the back thanking them? Show their children? Or surge forward, rescue the monkey and give the workers a taste of their own medicine by strapping them into the stereotaxic device and forcing pollutants into their lungs? We suspect that the workers would be rather harshly treated and rightly so. Of course as we know NETCU support such torture and would ensure that anyone who even criticised the vivisectors as they “worked” would be locked up or at least warned about “harassment”. Calling them what they are, torturers and murderers, would result in the HLS workers crying that they don’t like to be called such names and the police doing everything to placate them even if it means ignoring an old lady being mugged further down the street.

The NAVs investigator reported that on necropsy days when dead monkeys were dissected all of the macaques fell silent. The sheer horror, violence and terror HLS workers inflict on their victims has never and will never be inflicted on them, none of us would ever stoop so low as to kidnap, torture and murder one of them because we are morally superior , because however disgusting these lowlife are they are still sentient and because maybe, just maybe they will learn to be decent human beings one day, there is always hope.

NETCU, the CPS, the government, various police forces and the judiciary have backed HLS to the hilt and have publicly announced that they support all legal experiments including the ones filmed by NAVS. They too as bed fellows of this disgusting corporation are implicated with the atrocities committed.

Interestingly the Minstry of Defence are listed as HLS customers so what do HLS test on their behalf?

Response to reporting on SHAC sentencing.

Well the mainstream was very muted maybe because of Barrack Obama’s inauguration, maybe because the public may wonder what all the fuss is about, do a bit of research and start questioning the wisdom and morality of forcing pesticides down a beagle’s throat!

Only a couple of responses really… The judge Mr Butterfield stated that companies “had the right to conduct vital biomedical research”, well they do, shame that most of them torture animals instead often for trivial crap such as a something to make salmon a bit pinker, as long as the consumer buys the product and does not die of cancer too soon who cares? WE DO and we will continue to care for all victims human and non human. Lord Drayton science minister also chuntered on about “life saving medical research” adding that animals are killed only “where absolutely necessary” which includes nasal decongestants, floor cleaners, diet pills, Viagra and cosmetic Botox. Many people may not agree that testing a floor cleaner on a primate is “absolutely necessary” but this is how the government think.

The other old chestnut was that the defendants themselves did everything unlawful against HLS. They did not, they ran a campaign against a large unethical company, no evidence to our knowledge was given to the court of any of the defendants sending incendiary devices etc. Some have commented on the fact that one defendant shouted something that could be construed as threatening our response is that we think that a 4 year sentence for that is utterly ludicrous and highly politically motivated. If this was a neighbour dispute the police may have had a word about restraint at most so let us get this into perspective.

The sentences were meant to crush dissent, either that or the state actually believes that protests in which no-one was harmed are worse than trying to kill someone, actually killing someone, rape etc. Let us compare the sentences with real crime bearing in mind that Greg, Heather, Natasha and Gavin have a life sentence considering the ASBOs and that the judge remarked that he would like to have the option of an indeterminate sentence in this sort of case:

First up Neil Pringle who grabbed a woman and started strangling her in a terrifying sexual assault during which she was rendered unconscious and he tried to rape her. She walloped him and in 2008 he was finally brought to justice. Sentence 6 years and an entry on the sex register.

Peter Harfield raped a woman only weeks after she had given birth. He hunted her through a public park. The police did not believe her and it took 25 years before he was brought before a court and sentenced to 6 years and a lifelong entry on the sex offenders register.

Anthony Allen raped his own daughter repeatedly when she was a child. 11 years inside the same sentence as Heather!

Christopher Lewis and Martin Walker killed a 16 year old boy (manslaughter) by forcing him into deep water laughing as he drowned, prior to this he was punched, slapped, kicked and threatened with death. 5 ½ years so actually killing another human being is more acceptable than running a campaign in which no-one was killed according to the state! No ASBOs for them.

Tracey Matthews has just today been sentenced to 8 years in prison for kidnap, false imprisonment and perverting the course of justice! Not even in NETCU’s worst nightmares would any animal liberationist do what she did to a child. Heather will be in prison for 3 years longer AND be restrained by an ASBO indefinitely.

However badly the defendants are portrayed, even taking into consideration the lies and exaggerations, in comparison with predators that rape and kill for their own gratification these are ridiculously over the top sentences which aim to crush all dissent. To those who have asked why 3 defendants pleaded guilty it was very clear that this was to be a show trial they simply refused to play that game and it was their decision, not anyone else’s that counts.

Finally we would like to stress that although anger is justified against the police, CPS and judiciary in this case any premeditated, unlawful act is most certainly not in our view. Other defendants will have to face Judge Butterfield in only a few weeks, Mel’s retrial is ongoing and 3 activists are on trial in April all in all 11 more activists could face the same fate as the UK SHAC 7. We urge that no-one act on the fact that they may know where Neil Butterfield lives after this information was posted on Indymedia. At present the police have already got a warrant against an Indymedia server despite the fact that the address was removed quickly. Our enemies could use this not only to increase security in court rooms during forthcoming trials but to “protect” the jury, maybe by having them bussed in under police escort as they did at the Sequani trial. None of this will help the defendants as from day 1 the jury will be told in no uncertain terms that they are dangerous which is why anyone attending court has been asked to display nothing but the utmost restraint.
