Solidarity with democratic revolutions worldwide | South London subcultural arcana | unearthing political confusionism | triangulating two-state, one-state and no-state solutions | critical diaspora culture | anti-antisemitism | Sylvia Pankhurst, Hannah Arendt, Bayard Rustin and W.E.B. Du Bois | dub, grime, country, soul and blues.
A corrupt regime, led by someone who has admitted lying to "win" elections in a sick parody of democracy. Parliament square closed. Media kept confined to the choreographed, Stalinist-style official celebrations: uniformed soldiers highstepping in fascistic formations to officially mark the anniversary of the 1956 Uprising in Hungary. A thousand peaceful protestors shot at.
