China’s Birthday

The Chinese Communist Party celbrated its birthday with a military show in Tiananmen Square. President for Life Xi Jinping proclaimed at the Tiananmen gates that “no force can shake the status of this great nation.”

The pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong were eager to ruin the party, baiting local police into greater acts of brutality. Hong Kong police responded by shooting a protestor in the chest.

Jock Palfreeman Facts

In Sofia, Bulgaria in December 2007, Jock Palfreeman stabbed to death (with his butterfly knife) local law student Andrei Monov, son of socialist MP Hristo Monox, and injured Antoan Zahariev.

Jock claimed he got involved because he saw these youths attempting to assault two Roma (Gypsy) men. Jock’s story has never been corroborated, he had alcohol in his system and lied to police about who he was with that night. He was convicted of murder in 2008 and sentenced to 20 years in prison.

He was initially denied parole but it was overturned by an appeal court. The Bulgarian prosecutor-general is appealing the parole to the Supreme Court. Local media and politicians have been outraged at Jock’s potential release.

Anarchist blogger slackbastard has been leading a campaign to have Jock released. He has sucked in the local media and Foreign Minister Marise Payne to bring a convicted murderer back to Australia to be welcomed as an Antifa hero.
