The Somme: A Deeper Question

I’ve just been reading, during the commemorations for the Battle of the Somme, Wilfred Owen’s poem ‘Anthem For Doomed Youth’ about ‘these who die as cattle’. A comment by a member of the fantastic group, Veterans For Peace UK, on Facebook about the ceremonies says, ‘All the talk of fallen and sacrifice gets me. Those men did not fall they were ripped apart.’ which is exactly right. Senseless mass slaughter……and I couldn’t get Owen’s poem out of my head.

The Labour Files: Where is Democracy? Mainstream Media Blackout.

Corporate media silence as biggest leak in British political history reveals it’s implicated with politicians in a scandal of epic proportions.

Exchange With BBC Journalist at the Remeece March

A couple of weeks ago, I attended the Remeece march from Croyden to Brixton, a joyful experience due to the overwhelmingly positive response from shoppers, bus and car drivers, shop owners along the route, and the presence of the charismatic Remeece himself, whose relentless work at schools around the country has been vilified in the corporate media and earned him the respect of every […]

Aboriginal Community Issues Plea For International Assistance Over Forced Vaccination and Forced Detention

The full video of this heartbreaking plea could not be uploaded to my Youtube channel due to my having too many strikes against me for ‘breaching community standards’. In other words, for showing the truth the corporate media is suppressing. A technical hitch is also preventing me from uploading to the BSNews Youtube channel. The full video can be viewed […]
