Animal Rescue Workers talk at The Retreat Animal Sanctuary – Registered CHARITY 1105654

Deep in the heart of the Kent Countryside, lies The Retreat Animal Sanctuary.

The Retreat is the last chance saloon for saving Animals that have been victims of abuse, neglect, Privation, Malnourishment and all manner of mistreatment in and around the ferociously intensive and without exception, unethical animal agriculture for profit industry.

As well as Animal Rescue work, the site is a hub of social engagement, on open days giving people the change to connect and spend time with the rescue animals as well as running a number of events in the classroom touching all aspects of Animal Well being, Veganism and even subjects such as the Resource Based Economy.

retreat01retreat08 OPEN

This is a sanctuary that brings compassion and understanding of the dilemmas of a world profiteering off Animal Agriculture and the truth of the real costs on the lives subjected to it to the people on a directly 1 2 1 personal level though direct interaction with the thankfully rescued former victims of the systematic abuse of the animal agriculture industry.

retreat11 retreat13 retreat09 retreat12 retreat10 retreat14 retreat02

The Retreat is driven by site owner Billy Thompson and Neil Davies along with  a fiercely committed team of Vegan volunteers. The site is now a forever home for over 1250 animals and running costs are at 10,000 pounds a month.

The site is open to all though does have a strict Vegan policy that any food or clothing that is form animal product is widely discouraged. The Site boasts an excellent Café with an exceptionally wide menu and great price points. Also on site is a Charity Shop and Cow’s Cottage Holiday Home.

The Retreat, as a forever home, holds the ethical Higher ground. It is Fully staffed and run as a Vegan Sanctuary

– no kill shelters for unwanted animals when they are not rehomed,

– no horse riding (main cause of spinal damage in horses) or work housing livestock as is seen in some “working rescues”

– no breeding , lambing or culling, (as we found in another NON-Vegan Rescue in the isle of wight where they were charging for petting of goats and stocking goat meat for sale in the freezers, though when challenged to disclose to the “pay to pet” parents and children where last years animals were sadly in the shop freezer, became highly aggressive.)

Funding for the site is critical and there are a number of adoption and subscription programs that people can contribute to to help further the Charities work.

This Rescue is one that is in genuine need of support, it represents excellent ethical policy and is a hive of knowledge in Animal Husbandry and rescue.

Support them.

Get socially engaged with the work and embrace a Vegan ethic and lifestyle.

Philip Downs in Print – Mother Nature’s Fantasy Masterpiece light in a dark place – The Curious Tale of Otto and Trinity Small

Philip Downs, an accomplished artist with 19 books under his belt explores elements of living in harmony with nature, the oppressive and negative effects of organised religion, and of the long-lasting effects of kind hearts and innocence in a dark and troubled world.

In a world of ever accelerating consumerism and unchecked forced and unethical brand marketing dark times lie ahead of us, in making the right choices for the planet, for our communities and the land we  share with the animals and walk on. There will be a time when we must choose between what is convenient, perhaps easy and what is truly the right thing to do.

When we, in our daily lives are exposed to the harsh realities of profiteering destruction and violence it seems like a fantasy, an unbelievable world where Mother Nature has been chained and the madness of greed and self .deification of the wealthy elite reigns supreme. It is at these times that fantasy becomes the ultimate medium to build good ethical magical core beliefs and behaviours and it is in these stories where true happiness can be found, even in the very darkest of times, if one we, each one of us remembers to turn on the light for others to see by.

Phillp Downs, painstakingly detailed and stunning masterpiece “The Curious Tale of Otto and tarinity Small is one such work as this.

31530623_2067951913217454_8548584261781815296_n31485941_2067951406550838_1593317439569920000_n31494305_2067951169884195_1947003645593649152_n

A heavily illustrated (by the author) story of mad gods, kind hearts, and of two children who embark on a journey around the world that takes them six hundred years to complete. Along the way they encounter tales of demons trapped by salt, magical horticulturists, impossibly burning men, sun gods and hearth sprites and the history of the world being changed by a single firefly.

Lush graphics such as “The Six Hundred year journey” that accompany the book are also being rolled out in special art Prints in addition to the book.

Featured Artist – Philip McCulloch-Downs – Reality 2 Fantasy Art

Philip has been drawing and painting for nearly all his life, beginning with dinosaurs and spaceships at the age of 4, moving on to giant architectural cityscapes whilst at Leicester Polytechnic aged 22 gaining a degree in illustration, and then indulging in a decade of portrait painting, model-making for museums, designing T-shirts, and mixing up multicultural influences in colourful ways.
Aged 32 he moved out of the city to the countryside of Somerset and has spent the intervening years learning how to process the experiences of everyday life through his artwork, forming a visual diary of his life through his paintings, poetry, novels and videos.
During those years he became fully vegan after he began work at Viva! (www.viva.org.uk ) in 2003. This amazing organisation educated and inspired him, and he became fully committed to the vegan/animal rights art movement, gaining a following on social media, and producing a series of hard-hitting canvases and videos for Viva!’s Hen, Pig, and Dairy Campaigns.

In 2017 he left Viva! began to pursue a career in art on a full time basis, and to expand his ideas beyond the restrictions of any commercial organisation.

Artists Statement:

What does Animal Liberation mean to you? Educating the younger generation. Giving them the necessary facts and figures, as well as the encouragement, to help them realise that they can so easily change this world if they choose to, and thereby help us ALL evolve out of our current state of inertia and ignorance. 
My personal part in the Animal Liberation Movement means connecting and empathising with the creatures that I paint, treating them with a dignity that they are denied by our farmers. I try to bear witness to their character, their suffering and their individuality, and by removing any barriers between ‘us’ and ‘them’ allow viewers to feel an empathy, which will hopefully lead to an understanding that changes hearts and minds.

Phillip is open for Commission work, please feel free to contact him directly through his facebook

LONDON LIFE – From Pollution to Solution – ACT NOW – Breathe Vegan Air

LONDON LIFE – From Pollution to Solution – ACT NOW – Breathe Vegan Air

From “Chem trails”, to “Vaxed” , “Mogellons”, airborne pesticides and the flu jab right down to Traffic Pollutions bad boy the “Diesel Demon”, our immune systems are under attack, to impact our health, drive shop stock pharmaceutical sales up and enslave us to the healthcare megalomaniacs that own these invisible killers.

(Do you get the flu jab? / Are you or your Children Autistic ? / Are you Asthmatic ? Do you get rheumatism or Arthritis ?)

(Morgellons  are listed as  a collective Reality Asylum where  you are breathing Ethylene Dibromide, nano-particles of aluminium, barium, stronium and cationic polymer fibers with unidentified bio-active material. Long term chronic exposure to such toxins destroy the bodies immune system, leaving you vulnerable to serious infections, chronic health problems linked to auto immune dysfunction and hybrid cancers)

With nine thousand deaths a year in London on the official stats logs linked to pollution issues in the capital; is our health, our daily health, the casualty of a corporate/political war for a staged attempt to control our health and life lines and boost drugs sales under the guise of transportation pressures ? The Question keeps raising it’s head.

Globalization pushes people into the cities forcing population to soar in restricted areas and resources to be mismanaged and strained; whilst in the zones, outside the cities, land lies fallow and under resourced. Corporate pharmaceuticals appear to push their sales agenda through unscrupulous means and misinformation, cancers that never seem to have cures yet the research companies funding finds itself in off shore banking whilst peddling animal testing as the  way forward (British “Heartless” Foundation has been referred in investigations on line), with only 1% of results from animal trials ever having any relevance to research.

pollution to solution

The population of the western world is plugged in to the “I buy , therefore I am” automon cult. willfully ignorant and seemingly no longer equipped to even question the operation of the world around them. in the last election the majority of the british people voted for arms trade with the middle east, war against families mothers and children, anti terror laws despite losing human rights, brexit suicide, class war divisions, racism and escalating animal abuse.

The policies were blatantly clear in manifesto, yet the people voted for them. Is this really a nation of animal  abusers racist imperialist warmongers or is it more so that the voting public are automatons, unable to make their own judgement ? Opposition policies equally bland,  build on the marxist lie, left or right wing the political scene is all part of one party – the self wing. The people voted it in.

And yet,.even when we are being gassed , injected or fed chronic poisons licensed by the so called democracy that the peoples majority chose, this nation of self oppressed and oppressing idiots tugs the forelock and just carries on.

The Anti pollution mask is now being marketed and branded as a fashion item, A Vogmask or a Cambridge Company General are a wise addition in the unseen toxic tides that rage around us.

There is a distinct and absolute necessity in masking up if you want to reduce risks of  lung and throat cancer, but seriously, is this how you want to live ? The soot on our streets is driven into the heart of the city by rampant capitalism known under the banner and catch phrase of “globalisation” and it will kill you and I.

In the US studies by Dr. Michael Greger and Gene Stone showed that 100% of deaths in old age pensioners were caused by disease, not old age. death by old age does not exist. we are killed by disease, whilst the World Heath Organisation wastes funding on destroying and torturing animals instead of releasing the cures for serious diseases and restricting the manufacture of new strains of disease. It took 3 years to split the atom and yet cancer research are still peddling the “old story” that after 50 years they can’t cure cancer ?

There are endless issues in the pollution of our lives , the earth around us, the air, the animals, to even touch on in this post, though by researching into the above , phrase by phrase,  you will open your eyes to the lies we live under.

There is a way forward though,  a view past the punitive limitations of the banal society that our lives are irresponsibly gifted to by our parents and peers. the way forward is the Venus Project.

Choose a path in life that works with other people for the greater good of all society. A movement that works against pyramid power structures, money, war, greed and oppression. A World that uses resources instead of deliberately wasting them to create demand and keep prices high. A world where there is no war because there is nothing to fight over. Breathe Vegan Air. I use the term Vegan for what it represents in purity and health, both physical as well as spiritual and mental health.

There is a way to evolve and cast off the outdated oppression of so called gods and masters for the greater good.

EVOLVE and BREATHE VEGAN AIR

It is time to embrace a deeply satisfying realisable and spiritual concept that goes against a lifetime of brainwashing, a lifetime of school, army, church, of war and the inevitable oxymorons like war heros (killing does not make us heros), Friendly fire (shooting people is never friendly, fresh frozen (frozen is never fresh) and Happy Meals (enslaving torturing and murdering other creatures can never be happy) , Faith Divides Us and Death Unites Us are all traits of the satanic rather than the divine.

Cast off the blind fold, see the mirror then see the world around for what it truly is. It is time to atone for our earthly crimes of ignorance and avarice by making genuine meaningful change rather than playing lip service through rasping lies. To actually rise up and sing with your heart rather than just move your mouth to the words.

Embrace a Resource Based Existence (RBE). Corporate puppets “the governments” have spent 40 years trying to burying the RBE program. yet they never realised that we are all seeds.

Animal Rights Photography 2018 CALENDAR – ORDER NOW – London Underground REAL NEWS

Animal Rights Photography 2018 CALENDAR – ORDER NOW – London Underground REAL NEWS

In a reality asylum of the buy now pay later world of emotionally disconnected automated unrepentant pre-programmed national consumerism; photographs can be one of the most ground breaking and eye opening truth spreakers.

As the last of the old breed of Investigative journalists such as John Pilger now start to give way to the rise of the social media phenomenon in recording stark events; most of the western world (67%) now sources its news reporting form non commercial feeds. “Anony-News” gives the public access to real time events, underplayed or simply overwritten by the fake news and alternative facts commercial bandwagon. For the truth seeker the importance of following underground reporting cannot be understated.

We need to support the work of underground photographers, to give it place and space in our feeds , social media, on our bumper stickers, patches on jackets, graffiti on walls, banners and slogans on t-shirts. art in our living rooms..

ANIMAL RIGHTS PHOTOGRAPHY are out on the streets day and night documenting , investigating, exposing for a better world , to turn the tide against ignorance and abuse. Please Support their work here:

The Commercial media machines will continue to lie, deceive and manipulate advertising and news en mass to keep a nation of self oppressed and oppressing people uneducated, blank and idiotically simplistic in their understanding of the world we live in. They do not though own the internet and no longer do they own “the truth”. The real truth , the whole truth and nothing but the truth. It is out there, if YOU are capable of one very simple birth given skill ….

Free Thinking

The Animal rights Calendar 2018 focuses each month on Specific Anony-News events. Underground activism drives the issues that matter on the internet and this collection showcases some of the greatest and the most striking event images of this year in the hope that you, will unplug and engage.

The Calendar collection focuses specifically on the most vulnerable and at risk members of our society, the voiceless.

The current target of Theresa May’s sell out and sink Britain class war Government (Tories believe its ok to kill animals because apparantly they say they don’t have any feelings – why ? because to agree they actually do, as Europe does { british “blackshirts” couple never agree with Europe} will damage the profit line on the “sausage coin”)

The voiceless: the enslaved, the beaten, confined and that in endless haunting screams, murdered for nothing more trite and banal than a marketing driven corporate scam and profit machine under the misdemeanor of “choice”.

When Corbyn bangs on about “for the many” he is still “one”, you are the many and the animal even more so in their millions. It is not for “leadership contenders to assume they are well placed to lead but actually for the masses that puts the responsibility on each and every one of you to be active. Politics – Left Wing / Right Wing it is ALL Self Wing – a Game of Thrones and the so called Peoples Parliament sold to the highest “marketeer” for Profit.

The only Self wing party you should subscribe to is your own, choose your words based on truth , don’t be spoon fed the lies.

Stop being a consumer , be a Human Being NOW. That requires Humanity, yet the voiceless are subject to daily in-humane treatment for one reason and one true reason only, because the masses, yes that’s YOU, are willfully ignorant about the truth or simply ignorant in absence of the truth.

Politics is a cop out. Democracy is a lie because the facts presented to the public though State , Media and corporate advertising are lies. “Ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated ?” (John Lydon Sex Pistols)

So Follow the twitter feeds, read wikileaks not CNN and FOX,. look for trending on social media NOT the nine o clock news and unplug.

“You take the blue pill, the story ends. You wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.”

WINTER IS HERE at the RETREAT – Feed them all – Fundraising NOW !

RETREAT BANNER MANY BIRDS

WINTER IS HERE at the RETREAT – Feed them all – Fundraising NOW ! Reg Charity 1105654

In looking to be part of building a more enlightened world where humans remember their dignity and show compassion and love to all others, regardless of sex, race, age, gender, disability or species; the Retreat finds the continued exploitation, abuse, bullying, violence against and murder of animals in today’s society totally degrading and unacceptable and work tirelessly to help the voiceless make it past the last chance.

There are over 1250 animals at the retreat, the founders and volunteers rescue these animals from abuse, neglect and privation and provide them with a forever home. A fully Vegan sanctuary, this is the last stop in their life line for without rescue centres, there is no tomorrow for these animals.

Winter is on them and at 700 pounds a week to cover feed let alone general supplies, the Retreat needs to widen its net of support. With that in mind FISHINABOX have joined the fight to “FEED THEM ALL”. We need you to do the same.

001 web

Some people wonder why we help animals in need, personally I wonder why THEY wonder. There is nothing so rewarding, healing and meaningful as to mend a broken life, to restore happiness where fear have leached in to the bones of a sentient being due to heinous acts of cruelty, all in all this as much to do with Human Wrongs as it is to do with Animal Rights.

Be part of the change. Support the rescue and provide us with what we need to ensure a healthy, happy and long life.

VEGAN KITCHEN – BANANA CAKES AND SWEET BREADS – OLD MADE NEW

When we look for a dessert, the misdemeanor that its all about opulence, slapping the poor in the face with overpriced glucose fructose syrup and animal fat derived highway to diabetes dish is evident.

Somewhere along the line, the idea that a “treat” is nothing unless involving a remortgage and coronary heart disease has taken hold. From skin shots of a topless Kardashian served in a million dollar bathtub of champagne, yes not even naked at a million dollars !! through to the 1.65 million diamond fruitcake, just to prove you can sh+t diamonds, things have just got out of hand..

Top 10 Most Expensive Desserts

Lord in heaven yes some people are so poor ALL they have is money…so lets get back to basics, add some common sense to the pot (the thing about common sense is that it’s just not very common is it ?) revist the classic leftover, stop the “rot” baking recipes, old made new, yes our richness is life…

We picked up a crate of rotting Bananas, nice and squidgy and black, shut the door on the approaching fruit flies looking for a quick fix and opened the cupboard to see what we had to cook with.

IMG_7802 IMG_7803 IMG_7805 IMG_7813 IMG_7816 IMG_7820

The rough draft for cooking and sweetening up our banana bunch was this: “Rotting Banana Cake”

2 1/2 cups of plain flour

1 teaspoon of baking powder

1/2 teaspoon of salt0

6 uber ripe sweaty betty bananas suitable for mashing , (if you are brave let them start turning black, once you fear they are maybe going to be slime get them in there.)

3/4 to 1 cup of sugar

cup of soya milk or provamel soya almond yogurt

1/2 cup of vegetable oil

a squirt of liquid chocolate, powder doesn’t mix well so melt down some dark chocolate, (remember check there’s NO palm oil in your chocolate as those smarmy anti-primate bastards slip it in everywhere in vegan foods !)

and a teaspoon of either salted caramel or vanilla essence..

IMG_7827 IMG_7828 IMG_7829 IMG_7830 IMG_7831 IMG_7832

Mix it all up and whip whip whip until sticky but still liquid then Line the pan / tray with baking paper or greaseproof paper and pour it in. garnish the top with cut fruits nuts etc.

IMG_7833

Preheat the oven at 350 degrees C

Check it after 35 minutes. not to dark on the edges ? put a knife in the middle , is it cooked ? or is there sticky residue on the knife ? pop it back in if there is for another 10 -15 minutes and check again. if it’s getting black on top and still soft in the middle cover with foil and back in.

IMG_7836 IMG_7839 IMG_7840

We made variation after variation on this recipe. Go ahead, experiment. Try plums and dates, purees, you name it as long as the consistency goes into the tray sticky still liquid with the core ingredients, chances are you will be baking a hit for all palettes and ages.

Serve it with custard, service it with vegan ice cream (checking the back of ice creams .. swedish glaze has NO palm oil at the time of posting this article – owned though by Unilever so check and be sure you are comfortable with what you are buying if in doubt – custard powder is your safe way out)

Mary had a Little Lamb – 1816 racism 2016 speciesism – JUST SAY NO !!!!

Mary had a Little Lamb – 1816 racism 2016 speciesism – JUST SAY NO !

Violated rights – If you accept that animals have rights, raising and killing animals for food is morally wrong. An animal raised for food is being used by others rather than being respected for itself. In philosopher’s terms it is being treated as a means to human ends and not as an end in itself. This is a clear violation of the animal’s rights.

MARY HAD A LITTLE LAMB
Mary had a little lamb, and she really didnt know,

that her cute and cuddly suckling friend was actually a dairy cow,

This made things difficult for farmer giles cuz the calf would have to go,

At 20 pints of milk a day, it would drink his profits low

To get the little lamb to slaughter was a tricky problem posed ,

as the loved and little lamb would go where mary goes

It followed her to school one day,

But was turned out by the door,

No animals at school they said the lamb was allowed no more,

It waited patiently in the yard , its fleece as white as snow,

Till farmer giles grabbed it there and quickly slit its throat,

Yea mary had a little lamb , oh yea oh yea,

Yes Mary had a little lamb until you slit its throat,

the studies hit the tabloid press in 2015 under headlines like”‘Cheese is from plants’ – “Shocking food survey reveals a fifth of UK children don’t know bacon comes from pigs..” and that more than a third of the youngsters surveyed have never heard actual real life cow or sheep noises points clearly to a worrying ignorance about where their meals come from”..

so that’s what this song is all about, yeah we coined the old rhyme “Mary had a little lamb ” and then banged on about dairy cows in the next breath as if one was the other, because people are so willfully ignorant that they simply do not get that meat and dairy are coming from living loving sentient beings,

that people are desensitised and so far so very very far removed from these animals to not even know what animal is slaughtered for, or is used to produce what product..

Stupidity is the fastest spreading disease on the planet and we have to work against it and limit it, expose the facts and help people remake the connections that the food industry marketing machine have wiped from the slate.

Look up the polls,. check it on line see how far gone society is,.how the normalisation of Ethical abuse is justified based on specicism.

a calf can be a lamb can be a puppy can by a boy can be a slave where profit is involved , the law that allows this speciest profiteering to exist and it is fundamentally wrong,

just as the white europeans classed black people as a different species under slavery and used this as the justification to subject them to a life of oppression and privation, , so it is happening with domesticated animals the world over.

For the last , and only the last 126 years, whether its peoples so called choice to eat steaks, or ice cream sodas, dog meat (now available and becoming common place in switzerland) or testing tobacco products on beagle puppies, or trapping and murdering majestic wolves for their hides to be crassly regurgitated as hood trims for some over priced canadian elitist brand machine, or whether it is burning out rabbits eyes for this years soap scent or opening monkeys heads for a look see because there brains are so much like ours and apparently warrant study , Its speciesism

 

What is speciesism?

speciesism
ˈspiːʃiːˌzɪz(ə)m,ˈspiːsiːˌzɪz(ə)m/
noun – the assumption of human superiority leading to the exploitation of animals. / a prejudice or bias in favour of the interests of members of one’s own species and against those of members of other species. (Peter Singer, Animal Liberation, 1975)

ZAINAB SHEIKH – in joy we remember in sorrow we grieve – RUSTE IN VREDE

Zainab Sheikh, joined the project right at incept and coined the FISHINABOX catch phrase “Let’s do it Yeah !”. Her positive outlook and critical assessment in polishing her characters had ensured good authenticity in her parts. Her ability to fit into any diverse role has been tried and tested.

The proof was in the pudding, Zainab voicing the part of the auditioning teen wannabee on SOLD the Album as well as the mistreated rape victim and the Pleading abandoned mother on MESSAGE IN THE SAND. Zainab was also a Lead Cover model for FISHINABOX.

As a Model with a Father from Pakistan and her Mother, (half Surinamese half Guyanese,)  Zainab captured the dusky inspirational melting blend of strong vibrant Cultures, giving her a unique and captivating look that just had to be the face of the Album “Message in the Sand”. Zainab also featured as Cover Model for the Album “Pillar of Clouds” and played a leading role in the Alternative Rap Video “HANNIBAL”

Zainab passed away in the night of the 14th of November 2016 – “in liefdevolle herinnering, rust in vrede mijn zuster en vriend” (Andie Kumafaro).

She will be greatly missed. Rest in Peace

CITY SLICKERS – London White Collar Crime Scene – BANKING SCAM

anon web

Report after Report, post bailouts to the Banking Sector 2015 and 2016 have been a wash with scandals and cover up’s over Financial Services.

Investigations into critically weak financial controls in Drugs and Alcohol support Charities, British Banks handling vast sums of laundered Money, Drugs and Alcohol Testing on the rise in the workplace though apparantly not a workplace issue ?

Despite this, and the constant “disappearing” evidence of studies and results based statistics damning the white collar de-personalising automon office culture, the self seeking need for decadence clearly continues to reign supreme –  85% of workers admit to being drunk at work in the last year. 2,600 workers in offices were surveyed, and findings included:

28% admitted using drugs at work, including so-called ‘legal highs’, cannabis and other illegal narcotics
85% admit to being drunk at work in the last year, not including the Christmas party
31% admitted to being drunk at work, or having their capacity to work significantly diminished through alcohol, at least once per week

The White Collar world sees a “bit of blow” or a “chill pill” as little more than smoking a cigarette. While the rest of the Country is ruled by Austerity, the Financial Sector, the so called guardians of our treasury, future and economy are living it up and laughing it up in the most irresponsible way.

With responses like “it relieve’s the tensions of working all day,” while others blamed boredom, simply telling us that “It helps the day go faster.”

drink and drugs at work

In 2015 and then again 2016 we put a production album out highlighting the concerns being found by reporters and reporting on the ground. An ever accelerating culture of disconnection between personal and professional responsibility in the city square mile equal to the disproportionate class divide in our ever decaying money based society.

The Album City Slickers focused on a short set of investigations in to Drugs and Alcohol Abuse in and around Financial services and was put out for the Million Mask March anti-capitalist Protests of November 5th.

Needless to say restrictions on the “Dubstep Lorry” put out to broadcast the album around Trafalgar Square silenced the release so we put it out online on free stream for you here

When faced with the endless psychobabble on banking bailouts , austerity and the trickle down effect. Remember CITY SLICKERS. – “The endless austerity measures have made it worse for the country. It’s been the wrong remedy for the wrong patient at the wrong time.”

If you never really understood any of it but feel shortchanged at every level in society, here is a reminder on what was really actually going on:

EULOGY

Remember, remember! The fifth of November, The Gunpowder treason and plot; I know of no reason Why the Gunpowder treason Should ever be forgot!
Guy Fawkes and his companions Did the scheme contrive, To blow the King and Parliament All up alive. Threescore barrels, laid below, To prove old
England’s overthrow. But, by God’s providence, him they catch, With a dark lantern, lighting a match! A stick and a stake For King James’s sake!
If you won’t give me one, I’ll take two, The better for me, And the worse for you. A rope, a rope, to hang the Pope, A penn’orth of cheese to choke him,
A pint of beer to wash it down, And a jolly good fire to burn him. Holloa, boys! holloa, boys! make the bells ring! Holloa, boys! holloa boys! God save
the King!

CITY SLICKERS /

CITY SLICKERS Guy Fawkes DUBSTEP Remix

focuses on the Gross misconduct of City Financial Sector Traders and Decision Makers and there scant disregard to corporate responsibility specifically with regard to social irresponsibility and drug and amphetamine use throughout the London City Square mile. Heavily inspired and influenced by Alan Moore’s V for Vendetta, the Four Horsemen, Guy Fawkes and the Anti Capitalist Movement. The Album challenges misconceptions and assumptions about anti social behaviour in City corporate Life and assumptions about the anti establishment protest.

The Taxes that have been masked/hidden away by effective “WEALTH MANAGEMENT” by Corporations and City Workers alike in the London City Square Mile Alone cover the entire UK “BENEFIT STREET” annual bill so why are the Media and political scaremongers focusing on the press on the endless immigration loafer headlines, migration of workers, the supposed work shy north, endless processed food diets from food banks and people on the dole with flat screen TV’s when the real criminals , jobs for the boys, and turning a blind eye to completely unacceptable anti-social behavior are laughing it up and living it up on tax breaks down south…

JOBS FOR THE BOYS

YAIE YAIE, Jobs for the boys, JJJJ Jobs for the boys, The taxes that have been hidden away by effeftive wealth management by city corporations
and the like for the London City square mile alone, cover the entire UK benefits street annual bill.

So why are the Media scaremongerers focusing on migration of workers, the supposed work shy north and people on teh dole when the real criminals
, jobs for the boys, are turning a blind eye to completly unacceptable, anti social behavior are laughing it up and living it up on tax breaks
down south

JJJJ JJJJ Jobs for the boys, JJJ Jobs for the boys, On an average of 1,500 staff randomly checked for Drugs, 41 were found to be users of cocaine, 124
synthetic drugs and 28 for cannabis and unclassified narcotics. JJJJ Jobs for the boys, JJJJ Jobs for the boys

City Workers out on the Town are also resorting to crack cocaine. It’s growth has been orchestrated by street dealers offering smaller clubbing rocks,
Across the City of London, the numbe of addicts seeking help with crack based addictions has climbed by 50% over the last year.

JJJJ Jobs for the boys, JJJJ Jobs for the boys, Across the City of London, the numbe of addicts seeking help with crack based addictions has climbed by
50% over the last year. A study by the Rowntree foundation found anecdotal evidence for an increase of Drug testing in some high profile firms.
Particularity in the Financial Sector where there are no obvious health or safety justifications. JJJJ Jobs for the boys, JJJJ Jobs for the boys,

People turn a blind eye to Drugs and Alcohol, but also with a range of other behaviour because they don’t want to lose a key employee.
People turn a blind eye to Drugs and Alcohol, but also with a range of other behaviour because they don’t want to lose a key employee.

Major banks and Financial firms are increasingly carrying out drug testing their employees in a bid to cut out abuse in city workers.

WHITE COLLAR CRIME SCENE – OVERDOSE MIX

City Slickers (GUY FAWKES REMIX) REMIXED !! People turn a blind eye to Drugs and Alcohol, People turn a blind eye to Drugs and Alcohol,
People turn a blind eye to Drugs and Alcohol, People turn a blind eye to Drugs and Alcohol, People turn a blind eye to Drugs and Alcohol,

People turn a blind eye to Drugs and Alcohol, People turn a blind eye to Drugs and Alcohol

MILLION MASK MARCH

Need a little help, a little help, Need a little help, a little help, Need a little help, a little help, Need a little help, a little help,

We all know why we are here today, to expose the dodgy delings by bankers and corrupt politicians and profittering corporate developpers
we are here in opposition to the bail outs to the financial sector whilst the worlds communities and common people have been left to pick
up the peices and pay the bill for licensed criminality and so will our childrne and thier generations to come.

Not only do western governments want us to pay for thier mistakes but they also want us to go about it quietly. Thats not going to happen,
w wil not go quietly, there’s no chance, not while millions stand still unemplyed, whilst people are losnig thier homes and there is no chance
we will stand by whilst the weak and infirm die waiting for hospital beds.

police static , .. have you seen anything..
Remember, remember! The fifth of November, The Gunpowder treason and plot; I know of no reason Why the Gunpowder treason Should ever be forgot!
Guy Fawkes and his companions Did the scheme contrive, To blow the King and Parliament All up alive. Threescore barrels, laid below, To prove old
England’s overthrow. to prove old England’s overthrow. to prove old England’s overthrow. to prove old England’s overthrow. to prove old England’s overthrow.
to prove old England’s overthrow. to prove old England’s overthrow. to prove old England’s overthrow. to prove old England’s overthrow.
