Nobody hopes they're wrong more than a "conspiracy theorist", especially when what they're "theorising" about is something that will profoundly harm both the cause and individual people, but unfortunately, my predictions about the protest in London on the 19th were not wrong (see here:https://www.miriaf.com/apps/blog/show/49077744-arrested-development and here: https://www.miriaf.com/apps/blog/show/49083130-the-art-of-cold-war).
I didn't want to be too dramatic with my wording then because I didn't want to be seen to be telling people what to do, but I will be blunt now - that protest was nothing but an orchestrated and infiltrated set-up. It was a trap.
The protest was illegal and the organisers knew that it was. Did you? So many people attended under the severe misapprehension they were breaking no law and that peaceful protesting was "allowed", because they were not told anything different by the people promoting the event. In fact, due to changes under the law because of the Covid situation, protests are now illegal unless they pass strict risk assessments. The London protest had not and would not have done, because to pass, the risk assessment has to follow "Covid secure" guidelines.
Granted, you may have chosen to attend anyway, knowing it was illegal - but you didn't know. Nobody told you. I tried to alert people before the event, and cited the law, but who am I? The organisers didn't tell you, and let me be absolutely abundantly clear - they knew. They also knew they would be fine because, as per Kate Shemirani's Twitter, "ex-SAS disguised me and smuggled me in and out". Well, how perfectly convenient. Meanwhile, she's lured thousands of innocent people with no such protection to a wholly illegal event and left them at the mercy of violent riot police who, rumour has it, may have killed one of the protestors.
I saw live footage of the police engaging with the crowd before it turned violent, and they told them the absolute truth: that the event was illegal due to not passing a risk assessment, but they understood the attendees weren't aware of that, so they were here to tell them and give them a chance to leave of their own accord. If they didn't, then they would act to enforce the law, first by dispersing the crowd and then fines and arrests. 32 arrests have been reported so far, and again, I tried to warn people arrest was a real risk if they went, and that arrest is not a trivial matter (they will take your DNA by force for a start). My heart really sunk when I saw protestors shouting at the police that they "stand under common law" and so the real law doesn't apply to them. Did the police give one single, solitary f... ? Of course not. These supposedly magical invincibility cloaks of common law and Magna Carta mean nothing when an armed police thug has his baton in your face whilst his "colleagues" are tackling you the the ground.
The event was a set-up. It was also, as I warned it would be, heavily infiltrated by provocateurs - lots of aggressive, muscular young men getting in the police's faces - no such people were in evidence at the 29th (which had zero MSM publicity in the preceding days and weeks, whilst this event was splashed all over the papers, including in the Daily Mail the night before). The whole point of the event yesterday was to get you into an illegal situation which would therefore be heavily policed, and would then explode into violence, so "the resistance" can be totally demonised in the press (the coverage yesterday and today is legitimately hideous), the masses turned further against us, and the state can really show its teeth - as it did both via the police brutality on the day and with the extremely draconian lockdown measures that will follow next week, which will be in significant part blamed on the protest.
If you went, you were played, and it's not your fault, it's the fault of the organisers, who behaved with grotesque irresponsibility by luring you into an illegal situation and not telling you that's what they were doing. Let me repeat, THEY KNEW it was illegal. That's why they were "smuggled in and out", safely protected by the authorities, leaving you to deal with the terrifying and brutal consequences.
Also, ask yourself this: If the police knew it was illegal, which they absolutely did and knew well in advance, why didn't they just apprehend the organisers at 11am and stop them setting up? They could have ended the event before it started, thus avoiding all the horror that followed, which was directed at innocent people who largely didn't know they were breaking the law, rather than at the organisers who did. Why didn't the police simply mount the stage and escort the speakers off, thus ending the event instantly, rather than leaving the speakers alone and charging at the crowds?
That wasn't done because it wasn't in the authorities' interests. As I said last week, if they really didn't want you at that protest, it would have been extremely easy for them to stop it - and they wouldn't have been giving it huge press coverage, up to and including a big piece in the Daily Mail the night before. They wanted you there.
If you choose to go to further such events, please be very aware - without passing Covid-secure risk assessments, they are illegal and the police will enforce the law, probably even more aggressively than they did yesterday. The organisers apparently won't tell you that, so I will. You are breaking the law and if you feel capable of handling that - knowing the police will be violent if they feel the need to be - then that's entirely your call, but you need to know absolutely where you stand and what you're getting yourself into.
I personally would never dream of taking that risk or encouraging anyone else to, all for the sake of standing around listening to some barely-audible speeches telling me things I already know (or, in the case of the 19th, whipping up real hatred amongst the crowds for the police, calling them dogs, criminals, and paedophile-enablers. Because that's REALLY going to help ensure a heavily-policed illegal protest remains peaceful, isn't it?). Ask yourself honestly whether such an event is really a threat to the government, and if it is, how it is? What possible threat is the government under because some ordinary, peaceful people are standing in a public square waving placards, when hundreds of intensively trained and heavily armed riot police are surrounding them? The only people that event was a threat to was the people who attended it.
I'm going to say it again: protests are now illegal unless they pass strict "Covid secure" risk assessments. If they go ahead anyway, then the police have legal justification for dispersing and arresting, because the law is being broken. How does breaking this law serve either you or "the cause"? Yes, the law is appalling, but it's still the law, and if you break it, there could be severe consequences (have you ever been arrested? If not, I suggest talking to someone who has - it is not exactly a barrel of laughs, and can have long-term and highly undesirable implications). To be clear, all the people goading and taunting you for not attending these (illegal) protests are not going to be there to help you deal with these consequences. Where was Kate Shemirani whilst the protestors were being tackled to the ground, assaulted, and potentially, killed? Safely swept off by her "ex-SAS protection". She has condemned the police's actions - but the police told the crowds on the day the truth. She did not, and she will take no responsibility for the consequences of her deception.
Please stop being played by these people. I can't claim to know with any irrevocable authority what their motivations are, but I do know there is no justification for luring people into an illegal trap which has resulted in not just arrest and all the undesirable implications thereof, but severe emotional trauma, violent assault, and, potentially, death. People who lure you into these situations without giving you the full facts are not to be trusted and are not your friends.
So think very carefully before you make your next move - and about who you trust. I am going to say it again: do not trust people who trick you into breaking the law. Even if they do it "accidentally". Let's just imagine there was no direct malevolence, but the organisers simply hadn't bothered to find out whether the event was legal or illegal (which took me all of three minutes to find out on Google); that just shows they are recklessly cavalier with no regard for your safety, and so again, should not be trusted. Ultimately, whether someone's motivations are stupidity, selfishness, or something darker, the end result is the same.
The 19th September was a very dark day for the truth movement, and it was designed to be. Please let's not have a repeat.
