King called a ”drunken idiotic brainless bastard pimp..”..State demands 15 months prison

caricatura_rey_juan_carlos1You, the latest representative in Spain of the band of drunks, pimps, idiotic, brainless, bastards, nymphomaniacs and vagrants  that over the centuries have shaped the Bourbon royal line.”
For these words the prosecution asked 15 months in prison for the crime of libel to the Crown for the retired Colonel Martinez , from article he wrote in 2011.

After his arraignment, Martinez had some words for the press. “I came out of respect for the law, not for these judges. I have not committed any crime, because, apart from military, I’m a writer and historian who has the right to freedom of expression. I have not slandered the head of state, or even care, I just want  him to go. ”

In the Hall of the Central Criminal Court, the trial continued without witnesses or accused. The prosecution has maintained its request for conviction for “libel and slander to the Crown”

Regarding the parts designated as criticism without criminal offense, the prosecutor referred to the article quotes “the King uses (military aircraft and others) to attend grands prix of Formula I or international tennis tournaments.” Continue reading “King called a ”drunken idiotic brainless bastard pimp..”..State demands 15 months prison”

I Can’t Believe I Still Have to Protest This Shit

de allysonthefeminist

protest this shitHow true is this? I find it ridiculous that we’re still fighting the same issues.

1. Reproductive RIGHTS. Abortion and contraception aren’t going anywhere. Get the fuck over it. Random thought, why are condoms never a part of the debate? It’s always about contraception women use.

2. Rape is rape. No means no. The rapist is the ONLY person to blame. And no, the body cannot shut down rape babies.

3. Same-sex couples will be able to get married all over the US. There’s no stopping it. GET USED TO IT!

4. Women deserve the same pay as men. Period.

5. Fucking pass VAWA already. ALL women deserve to be protected. Stop being assholes. Yeah, I’m looking at you Cantor.

Thanks for reading my rant!

British ban squatting to pamper the 1% :Resistance Actions.

Squatting in empty properties is now a criminal offence, but homeless people say they are being unfairly criminalised.

London, UK – “Todd” was 18 when he came to the United Kingdom from Lithuania in 2005 in search of a better life. But things didn’t work out. By 2009, with the British economy ravaged by recession, he had lost his job and had nowhere to live.

“I had really bad depression so I couldn’t hold a job. I ended up sleeping rough on the streets. My mental health was deteriorating… I had suicidal thoughts,” he recalls.

Todd – an adopted Anglicisation of his Lithuanian name – ended up in Brighton, a town on England’s south coast with a reputation for tolerance, a vibrant arts scene and a homelessness problem. It was there that he began to rebuild his life, finding a vital support network among those squatting in the town’s ample stock of empty and neglected buildings and sometimes opening them up as impromptu galleries and cultural spaces.

“I call myself houseless, not homeless. We are a community and we help each other out,” he explains. “There is a lot of support and there is always somebody to talk to. Living like this, you’re always in control of your own life. You don’t have the money to support yourself food-wise, maybe, but you can go and get it from skips. It’s still the same food.” Continue reading “British ban squatting to pamper the 1% :Resistance Actions.”
