"Free the Navy 15"

http://freethenavy15.blogspot.com/

Quote:
Free the Navy 15 is a group of private individuals campaigning for the release of the 15 Royal Navy sailors and Royal Marines kidnapped at gunpoint by Iranian forces on 23rd March. Like millions of others we were discussing over a pint how outrageous Iran's actions are, and we thought: why not doing something about it? We organised our first protest outside the Iranian Embassy in London on Sunday 1st April, and aim to keep protesting regularly until the hostages are freed. Keep checking here for news of our planned protests, and email us at freethenavy15@gmail.com to join our mailing list.

The "just a group of private individuals who got together over a pint and decided to hold a demo outside the Iranian embassy" thing is obviously bollocks, but does anybody know who this mob actually are?

Think its like a government thing made to look "real" as another way of putting pressure on Iran?

Either way its meaningless without recognising the wider politics about hostage taking etc. and its not just Iran which does it.

Hmm, can't see it happening myself, to be honest. Surely they'd do better than a few sad acts hanging around outside the embassy? They've definately got infiltrators within right wing political groups, why not manipulate one of those towards something like this?

Hand drawn placards seem a bit fake. Most people would print something up these days? Probably some pr firm hired by her majesty.

Why not except perhaps they might be real, it looks far more real than the so call protest outside the British Embassy and a lorry “just” so happens to drive past with fist size rocks on board. Maybe it because it’s not an “issue” that directly involves the politically left elements; it suddenly becomes a source of suspicion. So the placards a bit iffy, if they were mass produced they would be accused of being sponsored by an unknown element. You are in a win no win situation.
