A couple living an “off-grid” lifestyle say they face prison unless they move from their own land in Willand and return to an existence in the benefits trap.

Stig and Dinah Mason bought Muxbeare Orchard after a sudden windfall allowed them to quit their impoverished lives on a Hertfordshire council estate two years ago.

The Masons have transformed what they described as a derelict four-acre plot into a haven of self-sufficiency boasting a 400 sq m allotment, a polytunnel and greenhouses to grow fruit and vegetables, chickens for egg production and an orchard they have regenerated by planting around 14 new apple trees of various species.

The couple, who have two boys, aged eight and nine, say because they moved onto the site in order to work the land, Mid Devon District Council is turfing them off as officers do not consider them to be conserving an agricultural area.

They faced magistrates on March 31 when they were served with an injunction to leave within 28 days from June 1.

Dinah, 35, who spent a year with her husband clearing four-foot high nettles and thistles which engulfed the four-acre site, said: “How anybody can say the orchard was being conserved before is beyond my comprehension.”

Dinah works while Stig, 34, as well as making sure the children get to school on time, tends to the land on a daily basis where peas, potatoes, garlic, strawberries, raspberries and various produce have been growing since 2009.

Vegetarians Stig and Dinah claim council officers offered them bed and breakfast accommodation in Cullompton at taxpayers’ expense and suggested they live on take aways, which are likely to cost around £20 for each family meal.

Dinah’s income currently provides the family with everything they need which they cannot grow themselves but is unlikely to stretch to cover kennelling costs for their dog, Moo.

They say they currently receive no state hand-outs but by giving up their “off grid” way of life, they fear they will end up in a council house, claiming housing and council tax benefits, as well as seeking grants to help pay for high utility bills.

Come on, that the fuck is this shit.

This is just retarded, I bet you that the council just doesn’t like the fact that they are living off-grid and that the power companies aren’t making any money on them.

It’s the same shit in Sweden, If you put enough solar cells on your roof in Sweden to fully power your house and get of the power grid, you get fined the exact amount of kronor that you where supposed to pay to the electric company and this goes on every month, so you have to pay even if you go off-grid.

This shit pisses me of so bad.

About:

Glenn Carle has spent over 25 years in the intelligence community in the U.S. After receiving a BA from Harvard University and an MA from Johns Hopkins University, Carle went on to serve as an Operations Officer in the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). He would later have a stint as Deputy Intelligence Officer in the National Intelligence Agency. Mr. Carle recently moved into the private sphere, working primarily in defense and space related industries.
Is Islamic terror a worldwide movement or a series of regional threats? Glenn Carle tests the commonly held theory that the west is in a fight against “Global Jihad.” Carle contends that while young Muslims around the world may identify with figures such as Osama Bin Laden, this is akin to an American wearing a Che Guevara t-shirt. In short, the imagery does not necessarily match the mindset of the person. Carle offers us a different and perhaps enlightening view on the current global terror phenomenon.

Just because it comes out of the TV doesn’t mean it’s the truth, it’s usually a lie.

Get informed and don’t fear.

Generation OS13 is an explosive insight into the attack on civil liberties occurring in western democracies and how artists, musicians, journalists and authors encourage the peoples right to resist against Banker occupation.

Examining economic dictatorships, puppet regimes, tax havens, tax dodgers, and the debt based money system the film explains why ‘you can not count on the law makers to see shit when it first happens’. For a new era, generation OS13, the repression will not be tolerated; do ‘the government really think they can win that war if the young people are like fuck this, you cant beat that you, can’t beat us, its Impossible’ – Saul Williams.

Although this video is to much aimed at violence, I understand that you can’t throw sparks into a tinder bundle and not expect a fire to occur.

So if your going to a protest, stay safe and don’t fight because that’s what they want you to do so that they can demonize what your trying to do.

From the article:

NATO leaders have been warned that WikiLeaks-loving ‘hacktivist’ collective Anonymous could pose a threat to member states’ security, following recent attacks on the US Chamber of Commerce and defence contractor HBGary – and promise to ‘persecute’ its members.

In a toughly-worded draft report to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, General Rapporteur Lord Jopling claims that the loose-knit, leaderless group is “becoming more and more sophisticated”, and “could potentially hack into sensitive government, military, and corporate files”.

The group demonstrated its capabilities in February, says the report, when it hacked into US-based defence contractor HBGary. Documents stolen in the attack lifted the lid on the US military’s plans to use social network surveillance software, code-named ‘Metal Gear’ by the online hive-mind, which could control an army of fake profiles, collecting data from disparate sites and piecing together an individual’s identity by analysing linguistic traits and other details.

Describing the rise of the group from its beginnings on internet picture message board 4chan, via campaigns against the Church of Scientology and, more recently, in support of whistle-blowing website Wikileaks, the report continues: “Today, the ad hoc international group of hackers and activists is said to have thousands of operatives and has no set rules or membership.”

The report goes on to lay out a stark warning to the group’s nameless participants:

“It remains to be seen how much time Anonymous has for pursuing such paths. The longer these attacks persist the more likely countermeasures will be developed, implemented, the groups will be infiltrated and perpetrators persecuted.”

Anonymous can’t be stopped since they don’t have any leaders, they are fueled only by a set of ideas and to quote one of their heroes “Beneath this mask there is more than flesh. Beneath this mask there is an idea, Mr. Creedy, and ideas are bulletproof. “ The US is yet again trying to fight a faceless enemy and we all know how the last two wars are going (War on Terror, War on Drugs).

Anonymous will not disappear and the more you put them in the news and talk about them, the more people are going to join up.

And lastly to clarify my stand here. I am not part of Anonymous and do not agree with how they fight, We do however share the same goal, an open and free society.

From the article:

The U.S. Central Intelligence Agency warned in a report that the tough austerity measures and the dire situation could escalate and even lead to a military coup, according to a report by Germany’s popular daily Bild.

According to he CIA report, ongoing street protests in crisis-hit Greece could turn into escalated violence and a rebellion and the Greek government could lose control, said Bild. The newspaper said the CIA report talks of a possible military coup if the situation becomes more serious and uncontrolled.

Greece is under immense pressure owing to public debt that has swollen to 340 billion euros. The EU, IMF and European Central Bank are pressing Greece to step up a privatization program and get all political parties to approve more austerity and reform measures that have sparked violent protests, but emergency talks called by the president on Friday failed to make any headway, AFP reported.

Opposition parties have mostly refused to support the government in its quest to cut spending by trimming an overblown civil service and the sweeping privatization drive announced this week has attracted even stronger protests.

Is it just me or is the people of the earth beginning to rise up against corrupt government, dictatorships and corporate fascism? The news stories are coming in thick through the pipes and the smell of revolution is in the air.

It’s an interesting time to be live.

From the article:

Doctors and other health professionals will be asked to identify people who are “vulnerable to being drawn into terrorism” as part of the government’s redrawn counter-terrorism programme to be detailed on Tuesday.

The home secretary, Theresa May, will also try to deflect criticism that the £60m-a-year Prevent programme has been used to spy on the Muslim community by extending its coverage to the far right and animal rights extremists, as well as Islamist groups.

May has indicated that 20 of the organisations funded by the government over the past three years are to have their cash withdrawn after the decision to stop working with non-violent extremists.

David Cameron has pushed through the change despite opposition from Nick Clegg and Charles Farr, the head of the office of security and counter-terrorism, arguing that such engagement is like “turning to a rightwing fascist party to fight a violent white supremacist movement”.

The argument within Whitehall has delayed the publication of the revised Prevent strategy for five months and it is believed that Cameron only finalised the document on Monday afternoon.

The Prevent programme was developed to combat home-grown terrorism after the 7 July bombings in 2005.

The final draft is believed to propose to “expand Prevent programmes to health bodies to draw on the expertise of medical professionals”.

One “key message” of the document is that it is not a programme to spy on Muslim communities, but doctors will be asked to identify people who may be “vulnerable” to recruitment by terrorist groups.

Wow, I wonder if the UK government is reading 1984 as an instruction manual because this is just scary as hell.

I mean do you want a doctor that will put helping you in the first place or do you want him/her to question you about being or not being a terrorist.

I know what my answer is.

The article:

US-led NATO forces have used depleted uranium, cluster bombs and other illegal substances while targeting residential areas in the Libyan capital, Tripoli, a human rights activist says.

After visiting Tripoli, Randy Short told Press TV that the high number of civilians targeted and injured by illegal bombs in the residential areas has caused a “lot of determination” by the people to resist the Western intervention.

“I’ve been to one particular area… in which [Libyan dictator’s son] Seif al-Islam Gaddafi’s house is located, and in that community which was residential, I saw the damage to civilian homes.”

Short went on to say that the military installations housing “mustard gas and yellow cake uranium” are no longer secure and this can provide easy access to illegal weapons, and could also be used as an excuse for the war by the West, “maybe on Iran.”

He stressed that the military base should be looked after by the national Libyan government.

Short added that his aim of the trip was to “see” what was actually going on in Libya, adding that there is a big difference between the situation on the ground and what is being reported “on CNN and Al-Jazeera.”

US, British, French, Canadian, Danish and Belgian warplanes have been conducting strikes on Libya since March 19 under UN Security Council Resolution 1973 that authorized “all necessary measures” to protect civilians.

Okay if this is true, we need to put pressure on the politicians to make them stop. That being said Randy Short may just want the war to stop by any means necessary and that includes lying.

We’ll have to keep an eye out for more news about this.
