CONFIRMED SPEAKERS

torbzTorbz

Introduction 11.00am-11.15am  – Day tickets only

Torbz is the founding administrator of Shape Freedom, a musician, peace activist and sovereignty researcher who will begin the conference with a brief presentation of his most recent activities concerning the taxation of vehicles in the UK and adventures in refusing to pay vehicle or ‘road’ tax and exploring the concepts of freedom of movement without taxation or levy in the UK.

The exercise included exporting the car to the foreign jurisdiction of the Sovereign State of Forvik, a small island off the coast of Shetland, founded by Stuart Hill.

Prajna

Prajña

11.15am-12.15pm  – Day tickets only

Prajña (and his partner Kali) are travelling folk who have lived peacefully outside of the system for a number of years. However, despite their best efforts, the system has done its best to interfere with their ‘rolling home’ and they have found themselves at the sharp end of an unjust police state.

Prajña has encountered, and been victim to, many highly questionable and, essentially, unlawful action at the hands of various Constabularies around the United Kingdom. His stories and triumphs are heart-warming and full of spirit and he’ll be presenting tales from his most recent exploits.

Prajña’s affable and peaceful nature and clear understanding of the concepts of freedom and sovereignty in a deeply flawed society are a refreshing context to examine the state of play in this country and the broader human situation. Read more at www.tomboy-pink.co.uk

dave-lanceDave Messenger & Lance

1.00pm-2.30pm  Entry cost: By donation (£3 min. recommended)

David and Lance have spent over two years exercising the constitutionally-evoked status of ‘Lawful Rebellion’. Article 61 of the 1215 Magna Carta, a key element of the British constitution, was evoked in 2001 by a quorum of 25 barons who petitioned the Queen to answer for her crimes against the Country (namely the ascent and ratification of the Treaty of Nice – thereby handing power to a foreign entity, which is Treason under British law.) The Queen was given 40 days to respond, which she duly failed to do, thereby invoking the right of redress in the form of lawful rebellion, which includes the seizing of Crown property and chattels, until redress is achieved.

David & Lance will elucidate as to the form and nature of lawful rebellion in greater depth and clarify the ‘duty’ that every person has to enter into Lawful Rebellion and seek redress for the handing over of our Nation to foreign governance.

For those who caught John Harris in 2009 and 2010 in Glastonbury, and the many subsequent speakers who have covered matters of sovereignty and common law, this is possibly the most practical status one can currently adopt, as it harks to the very fundamental cornerstones of our ancient system of law and custom.

David has requested that entry be free to his talk (or by optional donation) and we have agreed to this. You may, however, purchase a £3 ticket to ensure entry in case of over-subscription to the talk. There are 40 such ‘guaranteed entry’ tickets. Day ticket holders will of course gain guaranteed entry too.

Ian R CraneIan R Crane

2.45pm-4.15pm Entry cost: £8 (low/unwaged £5)

Ian R Crane is a former oilfield sevices executive …. who now writes and lectures on the unfolding geopolitical agenda. He is the also the host of ‘HUMANITY vs INSANITY’ & ‘FRACKING NIGHTMARE’ both of which are broadcast on www.ukcolumn.org/live and can be viewed on YouTube.

Humanity vs Insanity: The Fight Back!

It cannot have escaped your attention that the corporate agenda is being ramped up at a phenomenal pace. The rich are getting even richer, the Middle Classes are being saddled with ever increasing debt, whilst the working classes are being forced to compete for work in an ever-decreasing employment market. Many jobs are offered on ZERO hours contracts (‘Slave Labour on Demand’), whilst falsely reducing the reported level of Unemployment.

Benefits are being sanctioned & Bedroom Taxes imposed to force people out of their homes; creating an underclass that is then demonised in the lamestream media through such ‘reality’ shows as Benefits Street.

Meanwhile, ‘distractions’ such as paedohpilia (to undermine the fabric of British society), Israel (futhering the genocidal Zionist agenda) and ‘False Flag’ attacks (to bring about sanctions on Russia) are played out in the British media to keep the attention of the unthinking masses away from the rapidly accelerating agenda to establish socio-psychopathic global corporatist hegemony!

Where is the compassion? Where is the Humanity? Where are the plans to restore the Country to full employment? How can people actually get any enjoyment out of life when they life in constant financial stress and the World is kept of the brink of war? The Onus is on US to bring about the changes that we all know we need to see … in both the material & the non-material realm!

It’s TIME for HUMANITY to STAND UP and restore SANITY. Are you with US … or are you going to sit back and watch this Country (and the World) descend into a Corporatist HELL?

gilad-atzmonGilad Atzmon

4.30pm-5.45pm Entry cost: £8 (low/unwaged £5)

Gilad Atzmon is an Israeli-born British Jazz saxophonist, novelist, political comentator and writer. He writes  on political matters, social issues, Jewish identity and culture. His  papers have been published through many press outlets around the world in the Daily Telegraph, (previously) the Guardian and PressTV.

His recent book, ‘The Wandering Who?’ is a study of Jewish identity politics. Jewish identity is tied up with some of the most difficult and contentious issues of today. The purpose in the book is to open many of these issues up for discussion. Since Israel defines itself openly as the ‘Jewish State’, we should ask what the notions of ’Judaism’, ‘Jewishness’, ‘Jewish culture’ and ‘Jewish ideology’ stand for.

Gilad examines the tribal aspects embedded in Jewish secular discourse, both Zionist and anti Zionist; the ‘holocaust religion’; the meaning of ‘history’ and ‘time’ within the Jewish political discourse; the anti-Gentile ideologies entangled within different forms of secular Jewish political discourse and even within the Jewish left. He questions what it is that leads Diaspora Jews to identify themselves with Israel and affiliate with its politics. The devastating state of our world affairs raises an immediate demand for a conceptual shift in our intellectual and philosophical attitude towards politics, identity politics and history.

Gilad is certainly a controversial figure, and has been accused of antisemitism and allegedly denying the holocaust. We’ve had some criticism of our choice to include him at the Conference, but we prefer to allow our speakers the chance to defend themselves, rather than prejudice our decision-making on the opinions of others. Shape Freedom is apolitical and chooses its speakers because we believe they have valuable contributions to make to the realm of discussion on difficult or controversial subjects. Here, we’re sure, Gilad will fit right in – and if you having something to challenge him on, we invite you to come and participate and to pitch those challenges directly to him.

Ken O'KeefeKen O’Keefe

6.45pm-8.15pm  Entry cost: £8 (low/unwaged £5)

Ex U.S.-Marine, who served in the first Gulf War, and outspoken peace activist who organised the Human Shield Mission to Iraq in February 2003, which saw 3 double-decker buses leave London en route for Baghdad shortly before the US and UK commenced their bombing campaign and invasion in March 2003.

Ken was widely regarded by the media as an important opposing voice to the impending war and was featured on many International news channels including CNN, ABC, Al Jazeera, BBC (including ‘Hard Talk’ twice) and many other TV and Radio stations across the world.

In 2010, he was aboard the Gaza Freedom Humanitarian Flotilla which was attempting to find passage through an Israeli naval blockade to deliver aid to an embattled Gazan population. It was  subsequently boarded and attacked by Israeli forces in International waters, during which 9 Turkish crew members and fellow humanitarian volunteers were executed in cold blood.

A regular visitor to Gaza and the West Bank, Ken has witnessed and reported on many crimes committed by the State of Israel and its defense forces and has been a strong critic of the Israeli State.

He has also produced the documentary “The United States of Hypocrisy – The Stolen Nation of Hawaii” in 2001, which highlights the plight of Hawaii which he argues was stolen from the indigenous people by the United States.
