Stick em up

Chief Inspector of the Constabulary, Sir Denis O’Connor, has said the police can be licensed to use rubber bullets in “extreme cases” like during the London riots. Have we learned nothing? Rubber bullets incite riots, they don’t stop them; look at Ireland, look at the Arab Spring, look at any oppressive state that uses such extreme forms of ammunition against its citizens. Rubber bullets and water canon are serious weapons and they contravene human rights, they are condemned by the UN, and the UK police is now being sanctioned to use them. What does that say about our government and our state? Unless we want to live in a dictatorial regime we need to resist such state violence. This is what the book bloc is for. Ya Basta got it right
