Issue 1 Of Free Speech And Issue 4 Of Liberty & Nation Out Soon!
.

Anyone with the slightest interest in the concept of civil and religious liberties for all should get hold of Mick Hume’s book Trigger Warning: Is the Fear of Being Offensive Killing Free Speech?

THE NATIONAL LIBERAL PARTY can confirm that two new publications will soon be available. One has been produced by new FREE SPEECH – Civil & Religious Liberties For All Facebook group – the other is an official NLP publication.

Although initiated by members and supporters of the NLP, the Free Speech Facebook group is open to all those who want to promote, protect and preserve civil and religious liberties for all. Free Speech is interested in all aspects of freedom – however, it is especially interested in instances whereby elements of the State try to restrict freedom of speech, assembly and so on.

You can check out Free Speech here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1607711629485795/

Issue 1 of Free Speech is based on a review of Mick Hume’s book, Trigger Warning which recently appeared on the Facebook site – as well as being reproduced on the well-known and popular Counter Culture web-site here: http://countercultureuk.com/2015/07/26/trigger-warning/

For those who don’t know, Mick Hume is a journalist and author. He is editor-at-large of Spikedhttps://www.facebook.com/spikedonline?fref=ts – and writes regularly on free-speech issues. He had a weekly column in The Times for ten years, and was described as ‘Britain’s only libertarian Marxist newspaper columnist’. More recently he has written in defence of freedom of speech and a free press in The Times, the Sunday Times, the Independent and the Sun.

In Trigger Warning, Hume claims that freedom of speech is under threat, mainly because many of us don’t want to offend anyone. Indeed, politeness or fear of causing offence is undermining the hard-won rights of freedom of speech and thought that we like to think are the foundations of our society.

The folks behind the Free Speech Facebook site hope to produce Free Speech on a regular basis. The first issue will be in pdf format – although they hope that later issues will appear as hard copies as well. They’re also interested in producing leaflets which promote the concept of civil and religious liberties for all. Anyone who can help out in any capacity should simply leave a message in the comments section of the Free Speech Facebook site – https://www.facebook.com/groups/1607711629485795/ - as soon as this article appears.

Issue 4 of the NLPs Liberty & Nation will follow soon after Free Speech. It’ll appear in both pdf and hard copy. L&N will look at the threats made by Prime Minister David Cameron and Home Secretary Theresa May to dump the European Human Rights Act – EHRA – and replace it with some form of ‘UK Bill of Rights.’

Whilst the NLP views the EHRA as far from perfect, we view it as a progressive piece of legislation which defines Human Rights. This is one area in which we’re more than happy to acknowledge goes beyond any one nation, and should not be decided at an inter-national level.

Importantly the EHRA ensures that the individual has some protection against the excesses of the State – no matter who they are or what they’re accused of.

L&N will propose a formal constitutional bill of rights, the cornerstone of which will be the concept of civil and religious liberties for all. A civil rights watchdog should also be established to protect the people’s ability to make use of their rights.

Look out for more information about issue 4 of L&N in due course.

NLP Press Release – Introducing our Candidate for London Mayor
.
PROSPECTIVE NLP CANDIDATE FOR LONDON MAYOR ANNOUNCED!
.
After running a members only London Mayoral Primary, the National Liberal Party’s (NLP) executive National Council has announced that Upkar Singh Rai was victorious (with 69% of the votes) and will be the party’s official candidate for Mayor.

He further said “London is fast approaching un-sustainability. A burgeoning population is putting undue pressure on housing (prices, numbers and the ‘quality’ of rented properties), green spaces (being built upon) and transport (growing number of people and cars). This is a major challenge for the new Mayor to address but I shall endeavour to offer some solutions and some ‘red lines’.
.
He added “I am also keen to find ways to promote community cohesion with the capital’s diverse population. I will for example to ensure that all Londoners have basic skills in English by offering free language classes. This will help them take part in society fully, and save government money that is currently spent on interpreters. I will also promote our belief in self-determination and promote our campaign to improve the identification of various ‘national’ communities e.g. Tamil and Sikh, in the all London-wide censuses. These are some of the main issues for a Mayor to address and it will constitute a large part of my campaign.”

Self-Determination For All … Freedom For UMMOA!

.

.

OUR LATEST Self-Determination For All … e-poster is slightly different from previous ones in that it has been produced in support of a micronation.

The idea of a micronation is usually viewed with derision.  Indeed, according to Micronation Central – http://listofmicronations.com/ - “Micronations are generally viewed as ephemeral, eccentric and somewhat amusing by most external observers.”

Whilst this may be true in some respects, not all of those who advocate micronations are playing games.  For instance, many deadly serious secessionist movements exist in North America (1 – 3).  Also, it could be argued that many isolated indegenous tribes throughout the world already constitute micronations.

One of the leading advocates of micronations is Cesidio Tallini, who lives in the New York metropolitan area.  Brought up in both North America and Italy, he always felt ‘out of place.’

Cesidio describes himself as a 53 year old Cesidian religiously, a unique form of Judeo-Christianity. I am also a United Micronations Multi-Oceanic Archipelago or UMMOA national, a recognised internationally-distributed polity.”

He currently spends much of his time promoting his idea of the United Micronations Multi-Oceanic Archipelago – more commonly known as UMMOA.  This involves issuing a daily news bulletin (in English and Italian) via Intermicronational World (IW) samples of which can be found here https://www.facebook.com/ummoa?fref=ts

But where or what is UMMOA?  According to Cesidio:

“The UMMOA claims 30 disputed islands, atolls, archipelagos or points scattered across the Pacific Ocean, Caribbean Sea, Atlantic Ocean, Mediterranean Sea, Red Sea, and Indian Ocean; it claims one Antarctic continental territory; and the UMMOA also claims one highly scattered municipality (a diaxenospitia), which is a collective of all the private properties of three micronations.” (4 – 6)

We understand that many folks will find the concept of micronations hard to fully understand and accept.  Therefore, we’re delighted to announce that our friends at Fourth World Review4WR – will carry an in-depth interview with Cesidio in a future issue.

PROSPECTIVE MAYORAL CANDIDATE ANNOUNCED!

Upkar Singh Rai

.
The NLP National Council announced, at an official Primary meeting last weekend, the results of the London Mayoral vote. There were two candidates standing to be the party’s prospective candidate and the electoral college consisted of all paid-up members. The result was: Upkar Singh Rai = 69.2% Emma Fabienne Rome = 30.8% None of the Above (the existence of which we believe should be on all ballot papers) = 0%.

Upkar Singh Rai was duly elected as the Mayoral candidate whilst the National Council subsequently appointed Emma Rome as the lead candidate of the Party List.

Members of the NLP National Council announcing the results.

Upon hearing the result Upkar said “I would like to thank all those who voted for me. There are a lot of serious issues that face Londoners today, housing need vs. protecting green spaces, traffic congestion and community cohesion. These are some of the main issues for a Mayor to address and it will constitute a large part of my campaign. I will also promote our belief in self-determination and promote our campaign to improve the identification of various ‘national’ communities e.g. Tamil and Sikh, in the all London-wide censuses.”

.

Some of the delegates at the Primary

The aim of standing will be to profile the party and showcase our policies in order to recruit new members and improve upon our European election result. To enable Upkar to stand however is a challenge in itself. £20,000 is required for the Mayoral deposit and for inclusion in the Mayor’s booklet (sent out to all 3.5 million households).
.
There will be two funds, a Sponsorship (for the deposit) and Fighting Fund (for flyers and posters etc). The Primary rally raised £2000 of pledges towards to Sponsorship Fund. Can you help?
.
HOW YOU CAN HELP!
.
If you want to pledge (£100 plus) to the Sponsorship Fund please e-mail natliberal@aol.com. If you wish to donate to the Fighting Fund please go to http://nationalliberal.org/the-party-organisation/donate, or transfer to the Bank of Scotland, NLP, 12-11-03, 06186181, or Cheques can be mailed to the National Liberal Party, PO Box 4217, Hornchurch, Essex RM12 4PJ.
