Protesters to Flood Streets of Oxford Tomorrow

first_imgProtesters are expected to swamp the streets of Oxford tomorrow as the controversial Free Speech debate takes place at the Oxford Union.More than 1000 people are predicted to arrive in protest which will take place tomorrow at 8:30pm. The decision to go ahead with the debate was finalised last night after Union members voted 1062 to 640 in support of the invitations. Anti-fascist groups have condemned the decision to invite BNP leader Nick Griffin and David Irving -convicted of holocaust denial by an Austrian court – as irresponsible and dangerous, while OUSU President Martin McCluskey has expressed concern over the platform it will give to BNP views. Irving has been invited to speak at the Union before. In 2001, he was to take part in another free speech debate, but this event was cancelled. At the time, Thames Valley Police raised public order concerns surrounding the event. In a statement made earlier, they said that they were aware of the issues surrounding the event and reassured students and the public that they will be closely monitoring the event.Chief Inspector Dennis Evernden said: “Our role in this event is to prevent any breech of the peace, facilitate any lawful protest and reassure the general public. “We are very used to dealing with protest in Oxford and will deal with this event in a sensitive and professional manner.”last_img read more

first_img On January 30, the Brazilian police arrested three individuals who were transporting 24.5 kilos of cocaine for manufacturing crack, a highly addictive derivative of the drug. The shipment, seized during an operation in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, was hidden in a vehicle, the Federal Police stated. In December 2011, the Brazilian Government launched an offensive against what it called “a crack epidemic,” as a consequence of the tenfold increase in users between 2003 and 2011. During January, 18 traffickers of that substance were arrested in Rio Grande do Sul, on the border with Uruguay, according to a police statement. The majority of the cocaine that circulates in Brazil comes from Bolivia and Peru, two of the world’s leading cocaine producers, according to authorities.
