Slutwalk London

Sluts V Cuts earlier this year
Organisers say up to 5,000 people have taken part in the latest Slutwalk in London on Saturday - BBC link.
  Slutwalk started when a Canadian policeman advised students to 'avoid dressing like sluts' to avoid being victimised.  The cop stated to Toronto students: 'Women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized'.
  The response from activists was intense.  For more:
  Slutwalk London - link, Slutwalk Toronto - link.  Perhaps the police can stop dressing like Nazis to stop being thought of as obedient robots prepared to carry out state orders - Mario Savio Sproul Hall Steps speech - link.
  Perhaps our politicians could force the police to stick to their remit and look for criminals, rather than act as morality-enforcers and a bullying, state-empowered band of the tax-collectors.  Or perhaps have they other things on their mind?  Conflict - The Trough.  Pink - U + Ur Hand.
  'Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men' - Baron John Acton - link.
Photograph... where blind obedience and love of the State leads... the prison and the concentration camp. Conflict - Germany.
  Blind obedience or critical thinking.  That's the line - which side are you on?  Muse.
