Photographers protest UK terror law

Photographby Oil Scarff/Getty Images

  • Photographers say they have been unduly targeted by portion of act
  • Section 44 of Terrorism Act 2000 allows police to stop and search without suspicion
  • Court ruled that stop-and-search powers were breach of human rights
  • British government is appealing decision

More than two thousand photographersdescended upon London’s Trafalgar Square this weekend to protest section 44 of the Terrorism Act 2000, which was ruled unlawful by the European Court of Human Rights earlier this month.
As was predicted, UK police were on their best behavior during the protest as participants were able to photograph the square and themselves without incident. However, despite photographers having just one day free from harassment and the European Court of Human Rights’ ruling, Chief Constable Craig Mackey of the Association of Chief Police Officers said officers would continue to use stop and search powers while the court’s decision was appealed.
Be it here, in American or the UK, where there is a protest against the cops and the media cameras are there rolling of course the Cops will be on their best behavior. The can't show their true colors for the world to see.. However what will happen to these photographers in the days to come is the true question. Will the stops increase now, of course they will since big media cameras are not around. More photographers and tourists will be stop and harassed for taking photos.

Britain's terrorism laws were dealt a blow last week when the European Court of Human Rights ruled that stop-and-search powers under Section 44 of the Act were a breach of human rights.
The ruling came after lengthy legal fight by two people who were stopped and searched on their way to a London demonstration.
The court found that the "coercive powers" of the anti-terrorism legislation amounted to a clear interference with the right to respect for private life. The British government is appealing the decision, saying the powers are an important tool in the fight against terrorism.

Something I found online..

Over at Joe McNally's Blog he has this picture on it. Also it should be noted he has a very good story that goes with.. However I have a difference take on this one..
There is nothing wrong with the Picture at all. Its a great shot..

How my take.. Yes these steps are made of some type class. I'm sure it all safe if not it would not be there. However I would never trust these type of steps.. also it should be noted that these are frosted glass,

Whats i want to know is now much pressure and force can these Steps take??

This is what happens when someones plays around with your camera

Yesterday I want to take a few shots of my great nephew playing in his ball pit, It would have seem that one of my nieces was messing around with my camera with out me knowing it.

The day before I was photographing outdoors and was trying out new setting and a new filter. After my shoot, I removed the filter and return my setting on my camera back to auto.

So when I took the shot, I notice that the timing was off, then I look at the picture, then I look at my setting to find out that the setting was move to low lighting setting. which I never use.

However I learn or should I say I relearned a important lesson, to check your setting before you photograph your subject. Like those lessons you learn in your first of Photography school or workshop.

  1. A Photographer is never without his/her camera
  2. A photographer also has extra film and batteries on hand
However in today's (The digital age) it means that you make sure you have enough space on your media card and or extra cards, and that your batteries are fully charge and/or you have backup batteries

WBC-God hates Haiti,,, What is with these nutters...

Where is “God Hates Haiti?

Where is your message? You do not even have it up on God hates the World. Apparently GOD is very angry- and Haiti is fag infested and paying for their sins. Have you seen the Haitian’s? They are very very gay.

7.0 earthquake and you have not covered it? Please do it!


First off I'm shock to see they have supporters out there on their side beside their own sick blood pool..

Yet these self proclaim speakers of Gods couldn't even make to Haiti for this photo op. So what did they do, they Photoshoped their' Haiti photos, which I think they have been doing a lot of lately.

Q-note "hrc damned both ways"

Matt over at Q-notes has a great little piece on HRC Gala that will be held in Raleigh this year.

It seems HRC is always the recipient of some sort of criticism. It’s natural, really. Being such a big target leaves plenty of room for folks with darts. And you can always expect anti-HRC sentiment or other criticisms to be taken up a notch with their national or local fundraising dinners roll around.

What the critics often fail to recognize is all the hard work and dedication put into organizing local and state dinners by community members who really are making a difference at home. Dinner and state HRC steering committee members are involved in a plethora of other organizations and contribute to good and effective local and state groups.
 Well to be fair, he is correct, those whom plan, make the calls, and set up the gala are the true heros of this event, however the criticism that HRC has received in the past is truely deserved. Last year, HRC gala in Charlotte was protest by members of our own community, Why, because they (HRC) basicly throw the trans-community under the bus in DC, over a bill in congress, Many knows what that bill was/is.

Then lets take whom is speaking this year in Raleigh, Meredith Baxter, whom recently came out is a honor guess speaker. Wow, she worked all those years in the closet, and now since career is almost over.. She finally decide to come out the closet. Maybe she thought it would help her get more rolls, who knows?.

I would bet if a certain Scientologist member would come out of the closet he would be ask to be at the HRC Galas in CA... sadly this is how our community works. You can speak bad about, and not support us while in the closet, but as soon you come out we will welcome you with open arms.

then we have this too,
5:00 - 10 p.m. - 2010 HRC Carolinas Gala
Raleigh Convention Center
500 South Salisbury Street

5-6 p.m. - Federal Club and VIP Cocktail Reception
(Federal Club Members, Corporate Sponsors, and VIP guests only)
5:30 p.m. – Cocktails and Silent Auction
7-10 p.m. – Dinner and Program
They claim these Gala is for the whole community, but we all know it not true, unlike the ENC gala, this gala is a black tie event, and to make sure the high upper class doesn't have to mingle with the lower class they get this nice VIP Cocktail Reception why the rest has to wait out side to be let in. Where I bet Joe Solmon-sleaze  will kiss some major you know what.

Out of all the folks at HRC why does Joe have to be one to speak on behalf of HRC. He makes over a quarter  million dollars a year and gets to travel to these galas on HRC dime. I bet if he had to pay out of his own wallet for the planes, hotel and cars, he wouldn't be at so many of these events.

It time for fresh blood at HRC, Joe has to go.......

Eastern Rising continues to Rise..

A small group met today at the local teahouse social hangout called the Tipsy Teapot in Greenville, NC. These individuals met to discuss the need of a LGBT Community Center and starting a local pride event. Although the group was small, many great ideals came forth.

The main issue was what type of community center it would be. Would it be an Advocacy center, an educational center, or a social event center?

It was decided that it wouldn’t be a full out state Advocacy center, since we had a great Statewide Advocate group already in place. Equality NC is one of our greatest Organizations in our community. The work and progress they have made over the years are untouchable by any group.

This Center would be a combination of an Educational, and local advocacy center. Focusing on the needs of the local community first. While providing educational outreach and other services that are needed on the local level.

The Center will provide a local voice for the LGBT community in Pitt and the surrounding counties of Eastern North Carolina. It would also be a watch group, that would monitor local government bodies to stay up to date on local bills and ordinances that are up for a vote, which might have a negative impact on our community.

Through educational programs focused on helping those whom need help to express themselves more effectively. This would be done through a peer-to-peer program where local confused teens and coming out adults can come and talk with others whom have been through the same experience. This would also include a safe space where the teen can talk about their sexuality with their parents.

The center will also have a speaker program, which we hope will improve our community. This program will provide open education to the community by communicating to interested audiences (schools and churches) what it means to be an LGBT. The main goal is to eliminate bias and homophobia within our local community.

The center will also be a central hub of many groups as well. Almost like a one-stop resource center. The Center hopes to be able to provide office space for the following groups, Pflag, straight-gay alliance, and HIV testing and counseling center and substance abuse support groups.

It was also discussed that we need to work with local groups, which already exist in the area, like the Pitt CC Straight-Gay alliance and the ECU LGBT Student union.

On the pride front, the ECU LGBT Student Union is already discussing this issue. They welcome the input from the community as well. It seems that their plan for pride is only in the planning stage this year, they hope that next year they will able to bring Pride back to Greenville.

Self-centered couple makes a splash

From the Towleroad,

Black gay couple walk out of Mount Calvary Holy Church during anti-gay sermon: "Mack and Garrett, 32, contacted DC Agenda about their decision to walk out on Owens’ sermon and are believed to be the first gays to publicly disclose their departure from a church that activists say has a large number of closeted gay members, mostly black."

yet they knew about the this church before hand,

Mack and Garrett said they were aware of reports that Owens had previously made anti-gay remarks during his sermons at Greater Mount Calvary, which boasts a membership of more than 6,000 people. But the two noted they were attracted to the church’s charismatic, highly animated services, which include performances by several different choirs
 So I guess they shouldn't ready be that shock then should they..

Phobia, racism, hate, What the F'k

Something to think about , if the following photo was on a white person blog with the follwoing headline how fast would the african-americans be calling for its removal?

A Black Gay's Guide on how to deal with the white community for Dummies.

So if it is wrong for white to be racist and then why do we give the African Americans a free pass.

If a man did this to a woman would get the same sentence

CHILTON, WISCONSIN – Two Wisconsin women accused of seeking revenge on a cheating lover by gluing his penis to his stomach have reached plea deals.`
Forty-eight-year-old Therese Ziemann, of Menasha, was accused of doing the actual gluing. She pleaded no contest Monday to reduced charges of disorderly conduct and misdemeanor battery.
Her sister, 43-year-old Michelle Belliveau, of Neenah, pleaded no contest to disorderly conduct.
District attorney Ken Kratz agreed not to seek jail time for either one.
The women allegedly lured the 37-year-old Fond du Lac man to a motel and tied him to a bed in July.
A third defendant pleaded not guilty last month to false imprisonment. A false-imprisonment charge against the man’s wife was dropped earlier.
from The Associated Press

So, If a man lured a woman to hotel and glued some her of body parts together, I can bet you he would haven't that sentence at all, instead he would be facing years in prison, kidnapping, false imprisonment, assault and many other charges.. This only proves that men are the only true second class citizen

Britain war of Photography under section 44

read what section 44 is here. more on the problem here, story here, even here is more

What I don't understand is why they acting like everyone with a camera or video camera is a damn terrorist or working for one. Hell even the press is harass under this law, the Queen is trying to use it to stop the paparazzi to stop photographing her fmaily when there are doing un-royal like things in public...

Yet they enact these laws in 2000, not in the 70's or 80's when the IRA was bombing the hell out of them. It would made sense to enact these laws back then, may be then many of the bombs that place around the city would be found before the went off.. They wait till 200 to enact this law, and many others...

They enact this law a year before 9/11, I would have to wonder what did they know and when did they know it.

As we know what ever happens in the queen's land finds it way over here in a few years it has been 10 years since they enact their laws, 9 years since we enacted our PA law,,, Harassment against photographer have started in both countries,, So I guess we have come full circle here... Yes it does happen here, for years now some of our officials have try to get CCTV in New York and other cities, they have not fully got them here yet,, Across the pond in 2006 There are up to 4.2m CCTV cameras in Britain - about one for every 14 people, could you imagine how many there will/or could be in the US if congress every pass a bill to have them here... I'm sure it will be the ten or if not hundreds of millions

Question of the Day?

Today's Question concern Pam's House Blend blogger Pam, herself.

I'm many already know who and what Pam's Houseblend is and who Pam is.

I have notice that Pam seem to be more focus on national LGBT rights and activism then those that happen in her own backyard, unless it deals with Durham the city where she lives.

So, why would a national known blogger ignore parts of her own community?? (instate community)

Is her present to help or to raise Money

As Florida’s LGBT activists continue to await a court decision that could eventually negate the state’s gay adoption ban, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Florida has turned up the heat on the debate as it is set to launch a three-year campaign in coalition with a number of national, state and local organizations.

Actress Cynthia Nixon will be among the many activists scheduled to attend the campaign’s official kick-off at the Shore Club in Miami Beach on Saturday. Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, state Sen. Nan Rich [D-Sunrise] and state Rep. Mary Brandenburg [D-West Palm Beach] will also be among those in attendance.

 Don't get me wrong, I glad that she is willing to lean her support, but in truth do these actors/actress really help us in the long run or are they just a cash cow item?

2) Avatar ignores the fact of Evolution. Humans are evolving to be being Transgender, NOT heterosexual,

Ok let me see if I have this sick shit straight..

In the future men will be running to doctors to have their penis cuts off and turn into a fake vagina, and getting breast in plants, while women will be having their breast cut-off and having their vagina turn into a penis. so please tell how we are to reproduce please Lara...

So I guess our future will have sex change swap shops, "I will you mine for yours" "nice tits do you want my dick"

The most stupidest protest ever...

I want to thank everyone again who took part in the 12/18 protest against Avatar.  You made a difference and I thank for your continued interest and support.   Just so you know, there WILL BE more protests on March 7, 2010 if Avatar is nominated for any Oscar awards.   The details are being worked out to coordinate an effective campaign that will result with the progressive change that we seek.   I will keep you updated on the 3/7/10 protest plans.  In the meantime, please feel free to share your ideas and thoughts on what effective means of protest against the Oscars can be used.

Yes this Person, whom i used the term loosely , is completely off her rocker or she is doing why to many shrooms

However this reply I completely agree with,, And you wonder why they said Trans are sick..

Ok you are attacking a great movie with major breakthroughs in movie making and film technology just because it has a hetrosexual love interest and because you think the future is transgender and that all movie standards should adhere to your principles. So when someone with creative freedom who did the work to create, write, design, direct and make a movie staking his own reputation on it, you think its ok to protest the movie just because he doesn't share the same ideas? And that might not even be the case since the movie had nothing to do with sexual preference issues. Basically for no coherent reason other than your own intolerance are you attacking someone and trying to ruin there career. Yeah we sure are moving towards a more tolerant and understand future.
and lets not forget this

You ask for tolerance but you are unable to tolerate heterosexual people or movies in this case, get real, that's just a movie and it's not against you nor homosexual people, you just want an excuse to protest for homosexual's rights, I got no problem with you having the same rights than heterosexual people does, but you are using a moive, a sci-fi movie to boot, as a stupid excuse
I see that we are really becoming an anti-str8 group.

then there is this
Anonymous said...
I'm bisexual and of all the reasons to protest I have heard so far, this is the most stupid one, if you want to think that a movie is anti-homo just because the leading characters are not homo then I pity you since your brain seems to be so small that you aren't able to reason out that it's just a movie, something made to entertain people and not to promote hate, go see the movie and enjoy it for what it is, a movie

So when will this effing shit quit????

Lara its a fucking movie, if you want more trans- inclusive movies then become a effing movie maker and produce some movies till then please go and see a good shrink and get some good meds...

SNT: Big brother on your boats.... WTF

Fishermen are being coerced into carrying CCTV on their boats

Old-fishing-boat-tarrafal Courtesy of new EU rules, British fishermen are being bullied into having CCTV on their boats.  They will be permitted to take fewer catches if they don't.  It's to save the fish stocks, they say.  The cameras are to monitor stocks, and also to spot fishermen illegally dumping fish.
So the environmental movement is driving the furtherance of our surveillance society.  That's the first time I've made that connection and put it directly - I doubt that it will be the last.

The Queen is got her knicker in a bunch

The Queen is have a hissy fit over people taking photographs of her and her sorry family. She wants a complete lock-down on those pesty paparazzi using the zoom lens to catch all the bad stuff her family is doing..

By Carlos Miller
The crackdown against photographers in the United Kingdom reached royal levels last week when police confiscated dozen of cameras from people trying to photograph the queen and her family as they walked down a public street.
It was the first time in decades this occurred.
Norfolk police later admitted it was a misunderstanding, claiming the royal family had nothing to do with the confiscation of cameras.

this is from the Mail Online,
For decades, supporters of the royals have turned out to greet them as they go about their duties.
But those hoping for a memento of the Queen and her family yesterday were stunned after police seized their cameras.
It is the first time that visitors watching the Queen, Prince Charles and Princes William and Harry make their way to church have been prevented from taking photographs.
The incident comes just weeks after the Queen made an appeal for privacy and warned newspapers they face legal action if they publish paparazzi photos of ' private' situations.

So those of us whom might be deciding to visit the land of no rights at all, because you might be a terrorist, be prepare to submit to questioning under Section 44, and other crap that the uk po can think of, to protect the public from your camera or video camera.. However its ok from them to spy on you while you are there, walking down the streets, while you dining and drink in their pubs,, Big Brother/Queen is watching you, but you can't watch them...

But there is concern that the recent legal warnings are merely an attempt to obtain an unofficial privacy-law 'by the backdoor'. Graham-Smith, of anti-monarchist group Republic, said: 'The police are not there to protect the privacy of the royals.

'The Royal Family have to expect that people want to take photos of them in public. We hope that this is not a sign of things to come.' A spokesman for Norfolk Police, said: 'An officer, in error, requested cameras from members of the public. We will be allowing the public to keep their cameras, in accordance with a long-standing agreement.'

A spokesman for the Royal Family declined to comment.
Read more at Earth Times.

I have to wonder if one reason why the queen wants this banned--if it has to do with the one Paparazzi who caught William with his willy out at a soccer/football game??
see here

could this be one reason why??? click here to see the royal jewels leaking in public
just maybe this one is why??

Party time: William and Kate leaving the Boujis nightclub. While Boujis has become synonymous with the names of both its fun-loving royal patrons, it is also a magnet for cocaine abuse. Prince William is said to have run up a bar bill of £11,050 ($22,000) at Mahiki the week he separated from Miss Middleton (that’s around half the average national annual salary).

A look back, will this happen in 2010?

March the 3rd of 2009, the local anti-gay marriage group NC4Marriage held a rally in Raleigh, NC My partner and I attend this event. I search the web, local lgbt blogs and local lgbt org's site to see if a counter protest was going to be held. I found nothing, I sent emails, those whom reply simply said that a counter protest would do nothing for our cause. Yet we held supportive protest for those events in CA and other Major cities, Yet they didn't one a protest for anti-gay actions being held in our own State. Why is that? It was suggest just to attend the NC Equality Day of Action at the Capital instead. Which many of these same bigots also attended.

Once we arrive there was a small group holding a protest. Why my partner stay with them I walk among those who would deny us many rights that we should have. I took over 500 pictures of the group. I was only ask to leave after photographing a group of young ladies who was display some very questionable actions.

I when back to the small counter protest, just to find out I miss the local news reported whom was covering the event. i stay for a while but before leave I decide to return once more to the rally, that is when I notice Ian P. from NC Equality having a chat with these bigots.

I wonder if NC4Marriage will hold this rally again this year.
