Will Trump Torch the Global Economy on the Bonfire of his Vanity?

At least it is confirmed for us. Donald Trump wants regime change in Iran. His cancellation of the JCPOA was a decision born his myopia. He has surrounded himself with people who reinforce his view and manipulate him via his vanity.

And the price of implementing his current plan will be a global debt crisis which no one will escape. The problem will be very few will see the links.

Reaction from EU officials is still pouring in since Trump announced his decision earlier this week, so it didn’t take long before the cover was retweeted by French Ambassador to the US Gerard Araud.

Skripal Visited Estonia in 2016 to Meet With Local Intelligence - Reports

Former GRU colonel Sergei Skripal, who was poisoned in the UK town of Salisbury in March, secretly visited Estonia in 2016, where he met with local intelligence officers, something that London possibly helped to organize, New York Times reported on Monday.

Having settled in the United Kingdom, Skripal traveled widely offering information on Russia and its network of foreign agents to foreign intelligence services, according to the New York Times newspaper, citing European officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

A senior European official with knowledge of the trip confirmed that Skripal secretly met with a group of Estonian intelligence officers in June 2016. The source did not disclose what was on agenda but described it as "very sensitive information," to the newspaper reported, adding that UK intelligence supposedly facilitated the meeting.

ITALY: OF COALITIONS AND CURRENCIES

For some years, going all the way back to interviews with George Ann Hughes on the Byte Show, I've been saying to "watch Italy", because developments there would affect the course of Europe. It's relatively easy to see why: Italy is the Germany of Southern Europe, that is to say, it sits squarely in the middle of southern Europe, and is thus a bridge between east and west. I also sits squarely astride the central Mediterranean, and thus has had ties to north Africa dating from the Visigoths to Qaddafi. And of course, Italy's influence on the development of our culture, from the arts, letters, music, philosophy and jurisprudence has been enormous. Think for a moment of the span of time "from Rome to the Renaissance" and you get the idea.

HIDDEN CAM: MI Union Boss Neglects Mandatory Reporting of Child Abuse: “I don’t want you to get investigated”


Project Veritas has released more undercover footage from inside teachers union offices. The video features Nick Nugent, Executive Director of the South Oakland Districts Association for the Michigan Education Association, apparently violating Michigan Child Protection Law regarding mandated reporting.

On April 24th 2018 at Nugent’s office in Lathrup Village, Michigan, a Project Veritas undercover journalist posed as a MEA member who pushed a student down in class, knocking the student’s head against the edge of the board. The MEA official explained the union’s position to protect the member who abused a student:

“This is a tough one because, if we report it you’re gonna get investigated. And I don’t want you to get investigated.”

‘Terrible massacre’: Israel kills 41, injures 1,700 Gaza protesters as US embassy opens in Jerusalem

Forty-one Palestinian protesters have been killed by Israeli fire during demonstrations ahead of the US embassy inauguration in Jerusalem, the Palestinian health ministry said Monday.

More than 1,700 protesters have been injured in Gaza so far on what has been the most violent day of the six week long Great March of Return. Those wounded on Monday include 74 children and 23 women, according to the ministry.

The Palestinian government denounced Monday’s violence as a “terrible massacre” perpetrated “by the forces of the Israeli occupation”, and called for an immediate international intervention to prevent further deaths.

Black activist jailed for his Facebook posts speaks out about secret FBI surveillance

The FBI, Keighley said, learned of the protest from a video on Infowars, a far-right site run by the commentator Alex Jones, known for spreading false news and conspiracy theories. The reference to Infowars stunned Balogun: “They’re using a conspiracy theorist video as a reason to justify their tyranny? That is a big insult."...Authorities have not publicly labeled Balogun a BIE, but their language in court resembled the warnings in the FBI’s file. German said the case also appeared to utilize a “disruption strategy” in which the FBI targets lower-level arrests and charges to interfere with suspects’ lives as the agency struggles to build terrorism cases...But since his release one week ago, Balogun has also been forced to confront the harsh reality of life post-incarceration: he lost his vehicle, job and home; his son was forced to move and transfer schools and Balogun missed much of the first year of his newborn daughter’s life.

Ukrainian Deaths are Poroshenko’s Profits: An Anecdote from Eduard Popov

Even before the independence referenda in May 2014 and the outbreak of full-scale war, Donbass had avenged the deaths in Odessa and the former Ukraine and made the latter pay a price. Within a short span of time, the number of Ukrainian Armed Forces and other security and volunteer troops had gone up into the hundreds.

On May 11th, I had a conversation with an old friend who has been fighting in Donbass since the very first months of the conflict. In his approximate assessment, the UAF, National Guard, and nationalist battalions’ losses are upwards of 10,000 dead. Other sources in Donbass have voiced figures for Ukrainian losses which exceed this number by several times.

No matter what, it is clear that the Ukrainian Armed Forces’ losses are especially great. After ll, the Ukrainian army was poorly prepared for war and did not understand what it was fighting for when it was thrown against Donbass. Ukrainian troops were treated accordingly – as cannon fodder.

Israel Is Celebrating the Opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem

Israel on Sunday kicked off festivities to celebrate the opening of the new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, even as it bolstered its forces along the Gaza border and in the West Bank in anticipation of mass Palestinian protests of the move.

A day before the embassy’s formal opening, Israel hosted a gala party at its Foreign Ministry with President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka, her husband, Jared Kushner, and other American VIPs.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised Trump’s “bold decision” in upending decades of U.S. policy by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. “It’s the right thing to do,” a smiling Netanyahu told the jubilant crowd.

Supermarket chain Foodstuffs (NZ)admits facial recognition technology used in some stores

New Zealand's largest supermarket company has quietly rolled out facial recognition CCTV technology in some of its North Island stores.

It comes after revelations a man was mistakenly identified as a shoplifter at New World and amid warnings from the Privacy Commissioner about the use of the covert surveillance technique.

The man was allegedly misidentified due to human error, and Foodstuffs NZ claimed facial recognition was not used in the South Island.

However, the Otago Daily Times can reveal a security system that "bridges the gap between businesses and the police'' is now used at the Centre City New World in Dunedin, among other South Island stores.

Dunedin mechanic Daniel Ryan said he was recently taken aside by staff shortly after
entering the Centre City New World in Great King St, owned by Foodstuffs.

He alleged he was taken into a side room and questioned by staff, who said he had been
identified as a known shoplifter.

Why are 2/3rds of US children ‘not proficient’ in math? Leading teacher demonstrates: texts LIE about ‘real-world math problems’, stupefy children to tune-out from counting what’s most important (like US .01% admitting they ‘lost’ $21 TRILLION of taxes)

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

hat tip: David Icke

The US Department of Education reports that two-thirds of American school children are not proficient in mathematics (here, here).

In 2016 I wrote an article series about public education that includes a section on math that documents:
1. Math texts lie about “real world math problems” with ridiculous and contrived word problems.
2. Math texts don’t even care to define mathematics or algebra.
3. Algebra 1 fail rates are up to 50% of students, and is connected to the above two points along with less than 1% of adults using algebraic formulas in work.

The outcomes of such “education” include:

1. Americans concluding “math” is difficult and something to tune-out from; stupefying us from counting what’s most important in Life like US .01% “leaders” admitting they “lost” $21 trillion of our taxes (~$200,000 per average US household). Please pause to let that fact penetrate.

The Summer of War and Chaos: US-Israel Plan to Balkanize the Middle East

Tensions are at an all-time high in the Middle East as Israel launched more than sixty missiles at Syria because Israel claimed that Iranian forces fired rockets into the Golan Heights, an Israel-occupied territory since the 1967 Six-Day War.

ran responded to the Israeli claims in a Zero Hedge report:

In the aftermath of one of the most severe Israeli attacks on Syria “in decades,” Iranian lawmakers said Thursday that Iran had no role in the attack, and that Shia nation doesn’t operate any bases in Syria.

Mohammad Javad Jamali Nobandegani, a member of the Iranian Parliament’s national security and foreign policy committee, said Israel’s claim that Iran had provoked Israel by firing first was “a lie,” adding that

“Israel’s history of carrying out unprovoked attacks in Syria has been well-documented.” “Iran does not have military base in Syria,” Nobandegani added

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Trust me, Israel, enabled by the US government will continue to provoke and provide provocations against Iran, until Iran has no recourse but to fight back; at least, that is what Israeli government officials are hoping to attack.

So, one has to wonder; what will Russia do, if there are more attacks against Syria, with the ultimate goal of getting Iran to act militarily?!? I certainly hope that Russia's Vlad Putin has his chess moves in order here, because I think at the moment, he is the only world leader capable of preventing the Middle East from devolving into the chaos Netanyahu and Trump seem to so desperately want to see happen.

He says that the success of his rocket Spike NLOS recorded a camera that is in its nose.

In an interview on Wednesday, Espinosa said that the Ecuadorian government and Britain “have the intention and the interest that this be resolved.”

Congress Weighs Indefinite Detention of Americans

Under the guise of exercising supervisory power over the president’s ability to use military force, Congress is considering writing Donald Trump a blank check to indefinitely detain U.S. citizens with no criminal charges. Alarmingly, this legislation could permit the president to lock up Americans who dissent against U.S. military policy.

The first Chinese carrier of a fully domestic production aircraft - currently Type 001A - sailed on May 13 at 7:00 local time for reconnaissance testing.

It is being built since 2013, it was launched in April last year, and it has sailed from the port of Dalian, in the north of China, for testing.
The Ministry of Defense announced that its reliability in navigation, the stability of drives and "all other systems" will be checked in the coming days.

It is 315 meters long and 75 meters wide.

It's heavy of 70,000 tons, and it can develop speeds of up to 31 knots.

Two Interrogations, Gina Haspel and Adolf Eichmann

Haspel Says CIA Won’t Torture Again as Ray McGovern Is Dragged Out of Hearing
Likewise Eichmann was probed about his obedience when “ordered to do something blatantly illegal.” In a response that augured Haspel’s Senate testimony a half century later, Eichmann told his interrogators:

“You say illegal. Today I have a very different view of things…But then? I wouldn’t have considered any of those actions illegal… If anyone had asked me about it up until May 8, 1945, the end of the war, I’d have said: This government was elected by a majority of the German people…every civilized country on earth had its diplomatic mission. Who is a little man like me to trouble his head about it? I get orders from my superior and I look neither right nor left. That’s not my job. My job is to obey and comply.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Watching Ray McGovern, a 78 year old peace activist/grandfather, getting stomped on by Capital Police at the Haspel hearings, in such a way that they deliberately injured him, has given me the clearest image of where my alleged government has gone, and that is full-tilt boogie fascistic.

In terms of international relations, particularly in the Middle East, President Trump has become Netanyahu's ventrilloquist dummy, spouting and supporting everything that Netnayahu says, even when such actions are not for the betterment of We the People, but to support Israel's long-term goals in the region. If President Trump were outsourcing US foreign policy, Netanyahu is the last person on earth who should be guiding it, but at the moment he is.

Protecting Israel Is Their Full-Time Job

I have a number of times discussed how the U.S. and other governments have legislated and otherwise promoted Jewish and Israeli interests in ways that most people would find unacceptable if they were aware of what exactly has been going on. Here in the United States, special Medicare coverage and immigration status have been granted, often concealed in other legislation, to benefit holocaust survivors and Russian Jews seeking to emigrate. State legislatures and the U.S. Congress have meanwhile been working hard to pass legislation that blocks and even criminalizes the non-violent Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) protests against Israeli behavior while universities have been banning anti-Israel demonstrators and groups on campus because they apparently are offensive to the sensitivities of some Jewish students.

NUNS TORTURED 60 CHILDREN BY BURNING THEIR SKIN, SHOVING FACES IN TOILETS, AUTHORITIES SAY

Two nuns have been arrested in Colombia for allegedly torturing upward of 60 children under their care at a home dubbed a hell house by neighbors and local media.

Sor Ines Perez and Rosa Elivra Trochez Joagui ran the Santa Clara Rebirth Home in the southwest Colombian city of Popayan. According to authorities, children in their care were repeatedly burned on their hands and had their heads shoved in toilets as a form of punishment. Authorities began an investigation after neighbors heard the children screaming and called police, according to El Tiempo.

Both nuns have denied the charges of aggravated torture, with the alleged crimes dating between 2014 and 2017. The scores of children who lived at the home have all been relocated to other welfare sites, according to the country's Office of Attorney General.

We were lied to! Secret document FCO 30/1048 kept truth about EU from British for 30 years

A SECRET document, which remained locked away for 30 years, advised the British Government to COVER-UP the realities of EU membership so that by the time the public realised what was happening it would be too late.

Almost all of the shocking predictions – from the loss of British sovereignty, to monetary union and the over-arching powers of European courts – have come true.

But damningly for Tory Prime Minister Edward Heath, and all those who kept quiet about the findings in the early 70s, the document, known as FCO30/1048, was locked away under Official Secrets Act rules for almost five decades.

The classified paper, dated April 1971, suggested the Government should keep the British public in the dark about what EEC membership means predicting that it would take 30 years for voters to realise what was happening by which time it would be too late to leave.

Israel Baits the Hook. Will Syria Bite?

At face value, for Iran to inexplicably launch missiles at Israel, unprovoked and achieving no conceivable tactical, strategic, or political gain strains the credibility of Israel’s narrative even further.

But it is perhaps published US policy designating Israel as a hostile provocateur tasked with expanding Washington’s proxy war against Damascus that fully reveals the deadly and deceptive game Israel and the Western media are now playing.

For years, US policymakers admitted in their papers that the US desired regime change in Iran and sought to provoke a war to achieve it.

Israel Baits the Hook

The corporate-funded Brookings Institution – whose sponsors include weapon manufacturers, oil corporations, banks, and defense contractors – published a 2009 paper titled, “Which Path to Persia? Options for a New American Strategy Toward Iran,” and would not only spell out the US desire for regime change in Iran but devise a number of options to achieve it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is most likely why we will see a "false flag" in either Syria or Iran, to be blamed on Iran, to give the US/Israeli governments the "justifications" for a war, which Russia's Vlad Putiin is keen to see NOT go forward, as that will diminish Russia's expanding influence in the region, both geopolitically and economically.

I am, for one, rather astonished that no large false flag has yet been concocted to bring such a war about, although God knows, with its attacks on Iranian bases in Syria, the IDF has truly tried to make this happen.

Expect to see more aggression by Israel and/or the United States, until such a war is accomplished.

The Hungarian leader spoke to parliament this week following the massive two-thirds majority election victory of his party, Fidesz, in the recent national elections.

In his speech, Orban commented on a range of issues from “liberal” democracy to the European Union, Kronen Zeitung reports.

“We need to say it out loud because you can’t reform a nation in secrecy: the era of ‘liberal’ democracy is over,” he declared, announcing: “We want Christian democracy because we are Christian Democrats.”

Haspel Nomination: Torture? Let’s Also Not Forget the CIA’s Core Program of Assassination

Proponents of assassination assert that since the CIA and the Pentagon are assassinating foreigners, that particular restriction doesn’t apply. They say that the Constitution applies only here in the continental United States.

But that’s not what the restriction itself states. The restriction states “No person.” The framers of the Fifth Amendment obviously had a mastery over the English language. If they had wanted the restriction on murder to apply only to American citizens, they would have written, “No person except foreign citizens shall be deprived of life without due process of law.” Their intent clearly was to prohibit the federal government from murdering anyone.

Another temblor, the 7.9 magnitude Hawaii quake of 1868 caused the slump to move as well, resulting in a tsunami with a maximum wave height of about 60 feet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Following the 6.9 quakes, the south flank of Kilauea, below the rift, slid toward the ocean by 2 feet.

Inside the Cutthroat World of Billion-Dollar Military Supply Contracts

he U.S. Government Accountability Office is expected to rule soon on a disputed contract worth more than a billion dollars to supply food to American forces in the Middle East.

The big-dollar decision will mark the most recent twist in a battle over giant U.S. military logistics deals dating back nearly a decade, and includes allegations of sanctions busting, corruption, and fraud. The ruling could also prove troublesome for the Defense Department, which for years has faced criticism over its contracts with Gulf-owned logistics companies the military has used to feed deployed troops.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, these ghost corporations believe that they can bend the rules with impunity; if there are really any rules to the game, which I doubt, enormously, with this much money on the table.

THIS NEW TOOL HELPS YOU TURN OFF FACEBOOK’S SURVEILLANCE AND RECLAIM SOME PRIVACY

TYPICALLY, AD CAMPAIGNS have the goal of getting people to do something. But the one launched today by the activist group Citizens Against Monopoly is instead intended to show how hard something is to do.

The campaign, called “I’m Not Your Product,” gives Facebook users a step-by-step guide to opting out of as much ad targeting and surveillance as possible. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg told Congress that users have “complete control” over advertising data, during two days of testimony related to the political consultancy Cambridge Analytica, which illicitly obtained information on 87 million Facebook users.

Israel Nudges Trump Towards War With Iran

So what does all this add up to? In pulling the United States out of the international nuclear deal, Trump has heightened tensions with Iran on a number of issues unrelated to whatever nuclear ambitions that country may have. Netanyahu, who hated the nuclear deal from the start because it eased tensions and diminished pressure on Iran, now sees his opportunity to goad the Islamic Republic with pinprick airstrikes against Iranian positions in Syria. With Israel killing Iranians, a retaliatory response is inevitable, which is what Netanyahu wants. In this dangerous escalation of tensions, Trump has positioned his country on the side of Israel and against Iran; this will encourage further provocations by Netanyahu.

You don’t have to be Count Metternich to perceive where this is leading. It’s difficult to see how, under these circumstances, war can be avoided, while it’s easy to see how events could flip out of control and lead to war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is why Netanyahu is hoping to goad the US government into its own war against Iran and Syria, the costs of which would only be borne by American blood, and American money, which will galvanize Moscow to fight against the US in both Syria and Iran.

Such a war, at this time, would be catastrophic to the regime in DC, because at this time in its history, the US military doesn't have the weaponry; the troop strenth; the money; or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to any conventional war against Russia. Once those in the bowels of power in DC understand this, such a war could go both nuclear, and global.

So what would the current Netanyahu government have to gain from such a war?!?

Control over all the oil fields in the Middle East; that, and with which currency the oil is sold for, are the primary motivating factors here.

GERMAN BANK EXECUTIVES MAY BE INCLUDED ON TOP 10 LIST OF ANTISEMITISM CASES

International human rights organization the Simon Wiesenthal Center is considering the inclusion of three senior executives of the German Bank for Social Economy (BFS) on its list of the top ten worst cases of anti-Israel and antisemitic activity in 2018 because of the bank’s aggressive enabling of the BDS campaign targeting the Jewish state.

“We condemn the leaders of any bank that continues to allow BFS to do business with those who work to damage and ultimately do away with the Jewish state," Rabbi Abraham Cooper, the associate dean of the center, told The Jerusalem Post on Monday.

Brutal Murder Spree Of Ukrainian Millionaires Continues

Kiev media have confirmed reports about the death of Ukrainian citizens in Montenegro, who lived and had business in the Balkan country. Vasyl Kirilich, the head of the department of the consular service of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry, confirmed the Ukrainian citizenship of the deceased.

The body of Ukrainian citizen Anastasia Lashmanova was found in the evening of May 11 in her apartment in the Montenegrin city of Kotor, with severe stab wounds. The assessment showed that she died almost immediately after receiving them. The assets in Montenegro, which belonged to the deceased, are estimated at about 105 million euros (more than three billion hryvnia).

Natalie Portman Boycotts Israeli Prize; Right Wing Goes Ballistic

Actress Natalie Portman, a strong supporter of Israel, has come under vicious attack for criticizing that country’s leadership. She now joins the club of scholars, journalists, and political leaders who are vilified by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu or his right-wing cohorts.

Portman was born in Jerusalem, and although her family left Israel when she was only three, she became fluent in Hebrew. She is a dual citizen of Israel and the United States.

While studying at Harvard, she became a research assistant for right-wing Zionist Alan Dershowitz. She directed and starred in a feature film presenting the Jewish side of the 1948 war that established the Israeli state.

So Portman is an unlikely candidate for vilification by conservative Jews. Here’s what happened.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Natalie Portman has just rocketed in my respect level for her, both as an artist, and as a Jewish woman who wants to see peace in Israel. I support her in this, completely.

But I can guarantee her this: there will be a price to pay.

She can now expect that roles will become more difficult to come by, as the Israeli right wing attempts to crucify her, and hang her out to dry, artistically and economically. I can only hope that she, and her husband, have been careful guardians of the money she has earned in previous films, to get them through what may be a difficult economic period for them.

Milan Court Rehabilitates Berlusconi Opening Way for Reelection – Reports

A court in Italy ruled Saturday to lift a ban on former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi holding public office after he was sentenced in 2013 to a four-year prison term for tax fraud, local media said.

The Corriere della Sera newspaper reported that the Milan court had overturned a previous decision by Italy’s supreme court banning the 81-year old politician from running for office for six years.

The newspaper previously mentioned that the ex-prime minister submitted a relevant appeal to the court last March, adding that Berlusconi reportedly planned to overturn the ban in the European Court of Human Rights.

Vladimir Putin on verge of getting powerful new ally in EU as ITALY goes pro-Russia

VLADIMIR Putin’s Russia will get a powerful ally in the EU if Italy’s two elected anti-Brussels parties strike a deal to create an all-populist Government, experts fear.

High-ranking Brussels are reportedly deeply anxious about the outcome of leadership negotiations between the right-wing Lega and anti-establishment Five Star Movement who are locked in talks following the March 4 election which ended in a hung parliament.

If Five Star manage to agree a compromise with Lega Brussels could see a major EU country lobbying for pro-Russian measures in the EU Parliament.

Marine Le Pen Slams Macron for 'Illusions' He Could've Changed Trump's Mind

President Trump’s decision to walk out of the 2015 nuclear agreement with Tehran has prompted condemnation by other P5+1 members, including the EU, Russia and China.

France’s National Front head Marine Le Pen believes that President Emmanuel Macron bears his share of responsibility” for the “illusions” he had about his ability to talk President Trump out of withdrawing from the nuclear deal with Tehran.

“I resolutely condemn the position of Donald Trump and also that of the French diplomacy which, in its attempts to be even more neo-Conservative than (US national security adviser] John Bolton, has found itself without US patronage and no alternative way to go,” Le Pen said in a statement released on Friday.

German FM Vows Tougher Policy Toward Washington Amid Iran 'Disappointment'

The unilateral US withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal has poisoned the transatlantic relationship between Berlin and Washington, according to the top diplomat.

The US has demonstrated "very little willingness to take the arguments of its allies seriously," German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas told the German magazine Spiegel.

Donald Trump's decision to leave the Iran nuclear agreement has caused serious damage to relations between the United States and Germany in the long-run, the top diplomat stated.

"The transformation which the US is undergoing has already taken hold of transatlantic ties," Maas said, adding that Berlin was aware of the ongoing change "before Tuesday night's disappointment."

Disaster Looms in North Yemen as Pro-Saudi Forces near Hodeidah

The Saudi-backed Yemeni army took control of the town of al-Bareh, west of Taiz, earlier this week. The fall of this town is less important than what comes next, as the army draws ever closer to the key port city of Hodeidah.

Hodeidah is the lone seaport under the control of the Shi’ite Houthi movement, and by extension is the only port through which humanitarian aid can flow for the entire northern half of the country. A vital humanitarian location, which to pro-Saudi forces is a vital military target.

Successfully conquering Hodeidah would, after all, mean the Houthi territory, including the capital city and many millions of people, would have no access to food or medical aid. This would be an opportunity for the Saudi invading force to really crack down on them.

They envision it forcing a surrender, but it may also could bring millions of malnourished people into outright starvation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Yemeni Deaths by Starvation! Cholera!! Diptheria!! The mutilation and killings, through bombing raids, of infants, toddlers, women, and non-combatants, including the medically fragile elderly! WE JUST LOVE IT HERE IN RIYADH!!" - official spokesman for the B.O.Y., AKA the Butcher of Yemen, AKA Prince Mohammed Bin Salman.

WATCH Smoke Bombs in Trafalgar Square: Trade Union March Descends Into Rage

Some demonstrators attending a march for higher salaries in London have detonated smoke bombs.

The English Trades Union Congress (TUC) has organized a march through central London, demanding a new minimum wage of £10 per hour, as well as a money boost for the NHS, education and other public services.

As the union's General Secretary Frances O'Grady described the rally's aim: "There is a new mood in the country. People have been very patient but they are now demanding a new deal."
