Luton protest trial and Islam4UK ban: huge attacks on civil liberties

Convictions for peaceful protests deemed 'offensive' to chauvinists, and plans to ban an organisation which is not accused of any crime, mark a further onslaught on basic liberties in Britain.

Beneath the tabloid hysteria, and with media whitewash causing many of people to give their attention to the politics of Islam4UK rather than the serious threats facing activists in Britain, the state is ramping up repression to new extremes, using its 'war' on political Islam as an ideology (even when nobody has been harmed directly) to drive wedges into basic liberties yet again.
