Trail Hunting Exposed A pack of lies

Of course, the filth and the judges are in on the racket

Wildlife Matters

Friday the 13th has for centuries been regarded by the superstitious as a day of bad luck. This, of course, depends upon your opinion. Friday 13th November 2020 will be remembered by many as the good day. It is the day that Trail Hunting was fatally injured by one of its own, Lord Benjamin Mancroft, Chairman of the Master of the Foxhounds Association, and former Chair of the Countryside Alliance, supported by a cast of MFHA Directors and staff including: Mark Hankinson, Hunting Office Executive Director, and former Master of the Wilton Hunt, Richard Tyacke, Hunting Office Director and former Master of the Wynnstay Hunt, and two former Police Officers, Philip Davies, the MFHA’s legal advisor and, Paul Jelley, a former Devon and Somerset Police Officer.

The Hunt Saboteurs Association (HSA) released video’s of Zoom calls recorded during August 2020 of key MFHA Directors and staff, openly discussing how to…

Carlo Sorrachi / Carlo Neri / HN104 undercover cop.

This is Carlo Sorrachi, alias “Carlo Neri”, a rapist who deceived  three women into having sex with him. Women who would no sooner have sex with a policeman than a dog or a monkey.

Sorrachi’s job was to spy on the socialist party, a group that has never been a threat to anybody, being largely composed of boring old tankies. He was active from 2001 to 2006 and based in north and central London.

Judge Mitting, whose seasonal job will be starting any day now. Ho ho ho.

Chair of the Undercover Policing Inquiry, judge Mitting, has taken a shine to Sorrachi and refuses to let him be named in the proceedings, insisting he be referred to as “HN104”. As a result, Dave Smith of the Blacklist Support Group was unable to make his Opening Statement. From the early 1990s until mid 2000s, Smith was spied on by three policemen: Peter Francis, Mark Jenner and Carlo Soracchi.

As agent provocateur, Sorrachi/Neri tried to persuade Trade Unionists Frank Smith, Dan Gilman and Joe Batty to burn a property belonging to fascist Roberto Fiore, leading to the bizarre spectacle of the notorious fascist terrorist threatening legal action against the Metropolitan police.

Late November round-up: Courier strikes, rent strike victory, upcoming deportation flight and much more

Cautiously pessimistic

Another quick roundup:

Deliveroo and UberEats couriers in Sheffield went out on strike on Wednesday November 25th, with demands including a living wage, due process and an end to arbitrary sackings, and a hiring freeze. This last demand is one that has been criticised at times, with the recent book Class Power on Zero Hours arguing that to demand a hiring freeze is to play into divide-and-rule tactics, but as long as these companies continue to pay fixed piece rates, trying to reduce the supply of workers is going to continue to seem like an attractive option. Anyway, you can donate to their strike fund here, and check the new “Riders Roovolt” site here.

No space! No light! No home for a family!

Focus E15 Campaign

A Newham resident who lives in Brimstone house has been working with the campaign and has this to say about her living situation:

I am a 20 year old woman with a young baby. I grew up in Newham and am now a registered carer for my older brother who has a disability and cannot live independently. We both lived with my mum who is in full time work. I shared a bedroom with my brother. When I got pregnant the arrangement was still manageable but once my baby was born it was not possible to share the bedroom anymore. I had to move out.

I approached Newham council and explained the situation. No one will believe what happened next, but it is true. They offered to send a mediator to speak to my brother and my mother to negotiate me and my baby saying in the same bedroom as…

Repression/legal/prison news for mid-November, and other notes

Cautiously pessimistic

Undercover Policing Inquiry: Outrage at “Brick wall of silence” – In the  global war between rich and poor,

On the legal/repression front in the UK, the big news in recent weeks has been the start of the undercover policing inquiry. On that note, I can’t really add anything to the work of the Campaign Opposing Police Surveillance, who’ve been doing a great job of providing indepth daily summaries. One note worth paying attention to is that blacklisted construction worker Dave Smith was banned from mentioning the name of Carlo Sorrachi, the real name of one of the undercovers who spied on him, even though Sorrachi’s name is already in the public domain. Reel News have a short (4 minute) video on the inquiry you can watch here.
