“BBC World News! I took my city with me! My response to the riots!” – Basheer Jones
Five years of austerity measures have left Greeks frustrated with their government. In response, some have turned towards the ultra-nationalist Golden Dawn party. The group denies it is Neo-Nazi, but its violent past may have caught up with it.
Government budget cuts have meant over 5000 UK firefighters being axed, 39 fire stations closed & emergency response times significantly increasing. Lives are being lost as a result so why are the mainstream media not covering this?

Watching television or most of main stream media, including newspapers and many Hollywood movies is very distasteful to us. The mindset that creates much, but not all, of the programming on television and in cinema is abhorrent. It makes people into commodities and promotes violence. It reduces our intelligence and numbs our natural empathetic response to someone in pain.
