DEFEND HUMAN RIGHTS

Don’t let the sinister tory party destroy our fundamental Rights and fob us off with ‘Human-Rights-Lite’.  Once lost, our basic rights would be extremely difficult to reinstate.  Take action now – sign the petitions and share them around.  Write to your MP and express your thoughts.  Print out this 'Defend Human Rights' poster and display it where it can be seen.  Show your solidarity for the Rights that underpin our very civilization!   If ever  a cause mattered this is it!

Limpet challenges Derek Thomas on Human Rights Violations

These are our Rights:

The Right to Life
The Right not to be tortured
The Right not to be a slave
The Right to a fair trial
The Right NOT to be punished if you haven’t broken the law
The Right to private family life
The Right to freedom of thought, conscience, and religion
The Right to freedom of expression
The Right to marry and start a family
The Right to peaceful enjoyment of possessions
The Right to education
The Right to free elections
The Right NOT to be given the death penalty

This is what we fought World War Two for.  Will Derek Thomas, West Cornwall’s new Member of Parliament stand up and defend these rights, or will he betray civilization?  Welcome to the Moral Crossroads, folks – which way are you going?


Please print out some of these flyers and help publicize the petitions protecting Human Rights - thanks.
Here’s what you need to know about the Human Rights Act:

Derek Thomas Liquidates Human Rights in Cornwall

Camoron’s first step as reinstalled Prime Minister of Britannia is his proposition to strip us Brits of our Human Rights.  This includes the Right to Life, Justice, Freedom from Torture, Access to Legal Representation, and such trivialities.
His next move is an attack on Workers Right to Strike.  
Derek Thomas, our Member of Parliament for West Cornwall will oversee the dehumanisation of Rights in Kernow.  Is it 2015… or 1933? These Bullingdon Boys need to be stopped.  If you care about Democracy & Liberty now is the time to commit yourself to the Anti-Tory-Movement.

Burning Spear – Door Peep Shall Not Enter



The National Health service and the Welfare State have come to be used as interchangeable terms, and in the mouths of some people as terms of reproach. Why this is so it is not difficult to understand, if you view everything from the angle of a strictly individualistic competitive society. A free health service is pure Socialism and as such it is opposed to the hedonism of capitalist society.

FREE ALBERT WOODFOX

Albert Woodfox, has been held in solitary confinement since 1972 in Angola Penitentiary, Louisiana, USA, for the alleged killing of a guard.  His conviction has been overturned three times yet he has never been released.  Louisiana is holding Albert Fairfox illegally and his treatment has been declared by Amnesty International to constitute torture.   Mr Fairfox is essentially in prison for being a Black Panther.  Please sign Amnesty International’s petition for his release.
