A despatch from Trafalgar

Steve Cook reports from behind the plastic ice cream cone

by Steve Cook

Trafalgar Square 29/8/20

I am a veteran of a bygone era of demonstrations.

I was at so many back in the early 1970s: protests about Vietnam, Franko’s regime in Spain, British policy over Northern Ireland and so forth -and that included as I recall at least one demo at Trafalgar Square, although half a freakin’ century later I cannot now recall what it was about.

It was something of a surprise yesterday to find myself still doing that sort of thing at my age – albeit with less hair – but some issues are just plain worth turning out for. The well being of my country is one of them.

So there I was, pleased by the high turnout, the atmophere and the creative energy of the whole thing and pleased to see so many people unwilling to lie down and roll over in the face of tyranny.

I was pleased too to make new friends in the freedom movement and one of these was a special young lady, a true Truth Warrior called Xena, whom you can connect up with on Facebook if you are of a mind to here

There was another aspect of all this I found very heartwarming and it was this:

I went with my son.

Liam and I stood together for our country and the freedom of its people. It was a proud and magical moment for me and I felt very privileged.


Because back in the day when I was demonstrating as a young man, one thing that would NEVER have happened was my father standing beside me or me beside him. If anything, my dad would have been on a counter demo if such had existed back then.

That highlights one of the many pluses of the present day freedom movment.

Aside from its size and the miraculous speed of its growth since the government went overtly potty over the Coronavirus psyop, it is this:

The freedom movement does what it never did in earlier times: it spans and embraces generations.

I was far from the only dad at Trafalgar yesterday with his son or daughter besidde him. Nor the only grand parent either.

Ironically there is one thing the government has said throughout this whole fiacsco that it got right – albeit for all the “wrong” reasons:

We are all in this together

But the enemy is not a virus

It is a government infiltrated by subversives who collaborate with a power inimical to the wellbeing of the human community.

PS  The big ugly plastic ice cream cone mentioned in the picture really is a big ugly plastic ice cream cone that somebody has thoughtfully and for no known reason erected over an actual piece of art. It has a big red cherry on it and on the far side (not visible in the picture) a big even uglier fly clinging grotesquely to the side of it.  We enjoyed an uninterrupted view of what is probably the largest piece of uglification in the history of the universe.


The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
