Tortured and Murdered by Empire - Stations of the Cross through Westminster, London
27 people associated with the Catholic Worker communities based in Harringay, Rickmansworth and Oxford, undertoook a five hour contemporary Stations of the Cross procession through downtown Westminster/ London on Holy Thursday.
Processing behind a banner reading "Tortured and Murdered by Empire", the group carried a cross, images of the crucified Christ, victims of the UK wars on Iraq & Aghanistan, Jimmy Mubenga killed by GS4 at Heathrow during his 2010 deportation, Bradley Manning & Julian Assange of WikiLeaks presently in the crosshairs of empire for exposing war crimes.

In modern warfare, all that is asked of us today at the centre of empire is to avert our gaze as these institutions get on with the killing and our brothers and sisters out of sight and mind get on with the dying!
