CEASEFIRE NOW! – Derby Protest 19/11/23


Today, Robbie and I thought we’d missed the demo (I couldn’t walk much so he waited patiently at The Spot with me) and then, BOOM, it arrived and we all piled in the Derbion.

You can see from the pics above that some rascally kids had set of flares inside so it was smoky but apart from that one piece of theatre, the whole sit-in was as peaceful as it was passionate.

This shows that we are NOT going away, we are not gonna back down until our government does something.

We are not going to let the crimes of Israel and their babykillers in the IDF just pass by, we will continue marching and shouting until there is justice for all Palestinians.

I Stand Corrected: Israel is JUST AWESOME!

GAZA, 15 November 2023 – “Today I visited the Gaza Strip to meet with children, their families and UNICEF staff. What I saw and heard was devastating. They have endured repeated bombardment, loss and displacement. Inside the Strip, there is nowhere safe for Gaza’s one million children to turn. 

“In Gaza, more than 4,600 children have reportedly been killed, with nearly 9,000 reportedly injured.

Apparently, Israel has not bombed ANY civilians in Gaza.

YUP – you read that right.

I have been corrected on Mastodon by two lovely people from Israel.

No hospitals have been bombed in Gaza: those were HAMAS BASES

4,600 children have not been slaughtered: those were FUTURE HAMAS

Btw, Israel is NOT illegally occupying any territory: the whole of the UN is anti-Semitic.


Please, please remember the above!

When It’s Okay To Slaughter Thousands Of Babies

I posted my vid from Saturday’s Gaza Ceasefire demo on YT and, predictably, got told to go to Palestine / stop supporting terrorism / it’s a complex situation I don’t know about.

2023: when there are apparently two sides to murdering babies.

This is how much Israel has poisoned the discourse – we’re *discussing* whether it’s okay for Israel to murder babies??

IF you agree with Israel and think that it *is* a discussion – you are lost. And insane.


Today, I marched alongside hundreds of thousands of ordinary people who want to save the lives of people they’ve never met. The police say 300,000 so I’d say that probably means there was a million of us, judging by how they’ve lied about the last 39 years of marches I’ve been on.

We want an immediate ceasefire, we want Gaza to be fully accessible to every aid agency and we also don’t want those aid workers to be then murdered by Israel because they were “over a Hamas tunnel” or some other utter bullshit used to justify war crimes.

My health is not great and I pretty much fucked it today but I’m so glad I could go and take part. I cannot just sit by, silently while Israel shells more hospitals, murders more civilians and then lies about it with the total complicity of the UK government.

Now, more than ever, FUCK THE TORIES.

Never forget, they supported *baby killers.*

Here’s some pics I took today:


Derby Silent Vigil For Palestine 5/11/23


Another weekend, another global wave of protest against the genocide currently being carried out by Israel on Gaza.

And yet more Israel-appeasement from the Western leaders.

NEVER forget the names of the cunts who supported the murder of innocent babies. Never forget the glee of Sunak, Braverman and their ilk, who couldn’t wait to bow and scrape to the murderous, cancerous government of Netanyahu. Apparently, our Tories love Netanyahu more than Israelis themselves do.

Four thousand children butchered by Israel. And our governments do NOTHING.


Never forgive them their war crimes, never forget.

Derby Palestine Solidarity Protest 28/10/23


I wasn’t well enough to do the march but I still made it to the demo outside the council house. The feeling was different from the last protest; this felt more desperate, more crucial. I guess because every new morning brings new horrors from Gaza, new atrocities carried out by Israel that are directly politically supported and militarily funded by the US and UK.

The turnout was huge. Again, people are having to take to the streets because they know both our government and the official opposition do not give a flying fuck about the murders being carried out in Palestine. The fact that Starmer gave Israel his full blessing to murder indiscriminately, to carry out the war crime of collective punishment, says it all.

Since coming back home, I’ve taken more painkillers and I still feel like shit because I really should not have gone out. But I can’t do nothing when a population that’s half children is being shelled by US-supplied munitions. I’ll be pissing blood again tomorrow but I’ll be in my safe, warm house. I won’t be living in the shadow of the greatest terrorist force on this planet.

Here’s a video of the protest I made:

Do what you can. March. Shout. Sing. Write.

You cannot do nothing.


Mastosilence = Death

Mast has this reputation of being left wing.

But the silence in my Home feed about the war crimes being committed against Gaza at this very moment shows the lie of that reputation.

I guess liberals will liberal and follow their respective media’s hysteria to the letter.

If you posted about the horrors that Hamas carried out but are silent about Israel’s war crimes then please un-follow me.

Because fuck all racists. No life is worth less than another.

Free Palestine Derby Demo 14/10/23


Today, I went on the local demo in support of the innocent people of Gaza and against the war crimes Israel is currently carrying out against them:

Israel may be on the verge of a “mass ethnic cleansing” of Palestinians in Gaza in the wake of the bloody Hamas attack, a United Nations expert has warned.

… Francesca Albanese, UN Special Rapporteur on human rights in the Palestinian Territory, has warned that Palestinians may be facing another “Nakba”, or forced expulsion from their land.

The Nakba — or “catastrophe” in Arabic — refers to the expulsion of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians from the territory during the 1948 Arab-Israeli war.

“There is a grave danger that what we are witnessing may be a repeat of the 1948 Nakba, and the 1967 Naksa, yet on a larger scale. The international community must do everything to stop this from happening again,” said Ms Albanese in a statement on Saturday.

And she added:  “Israel has already carried out mass ethnic cleansing of Palestinians under the fog of war.

“Again, in the name of self-defence, Israel is seeking to justify what would amount to ethnic cleansing.”

Not one person at the Derby rally spoke in support of Hamas, in fact they all condemned their actions. What I heard were people pleading for the people of Gaza to be supported internationally in exactly the same way as the people of Ukraine are.

Where are the Western jet fighters and weapons for this occupied people?

The children and other innocents killed by the criminal attacks of Israel?

Hey, that’s just war. So sad, nothing to be done. Oh well.

I dread to check the news to see what’s happened. Will the Israelis tell people to leave via Rafah and then bomb them? Will it be more white phosphorous?

The only heartening news is that the people of the UK know they’re being lied to about this situation, we know that Palestinians are not seen as humans by our media. Today, I’m proud to have been part of nationwide demonstrations.

If we keep marching and shouting and protesting enough, eventually even our craven politicians will hear us.

Free Palestine!

Bring Back The Blitz Spirit (Of Taxation)

Tax revenues as a percentage of GDP for the U.K. in comparison to the OECD and the EU 15

The current biggest con is the disparity between the 1% and the rest of us.

Upper-middle-class people are brainwashed into thinking they’re the 1%. They’re not – they’re paupers compared to the actual people ruining the planet.

The clue is in the number. The 99% us need to join together and remove 99.9% of the wealth from the 1%. Hell, they’d still be rich, I think that’s more than fair.

Let’s do like Britain did during the war and make sure the richest are contributing properly to society, let’s bring back 99.25% tax for the top 5% earners!
