Fitwatch shut down by police
Of great concern is the status of Fitwatch (background wiki page), a civil disobedience website that has been shut down by police. I couldn’t possibly concur that it is an anti-police website, as has been widely reported, but I have tracked down the article that has been judged to have been so seditious that it must be withdrawn from the internet. Thankfully Indymedia, among others, has linked to the text. I won’t repost it here, but I am happy to link to it so you can judge for youreself. I think that it’s certainly angry in its tone a, but it’s hardly the work of Maximilien Robespierre. I cannot see why our democracy cannot allow such ideas to circulate freely .
