Britain Sexual Revolution – A talk by DR Matt Cook – is a special meeting to mark the international day against homophobia and transophobia(IDAHO) www.dayagainsthomophobia.org
Event organized by Friends of GALHA
The period commonly associated with sexual revolution in Britain-roughly between 1965 and 1970-saw what the historian Hera Cook calls an “astonishing pace of change”. This talk will underscore the significance of this half of the decade, but will also look across the full post-1945 period and look at this sexual revolution in a wider context.
Dr Matt Cook is a Senior Lecturer in History and Gender Studies at Birkbeck College, University of London, and co-director of the RAPHAEL SAMUEL HISTORY CENTRE www.raphael-samuel.org.uk
Also this year took here place the London Marathon 2013, despite the fears after the terror attach at the Boston Marathon, which made at least 3 victims, and almost 170 injured.
For this special problem the Metropolitan Police in London enforced massively the security system, putting fences at the starting and arriving and inner mile’s steps posts, which were considered as the most targeted places for an attach; They also used the dog units, to find potential threats. Luckily nothing happened, and all has gone perfectly, except for some athletes which needed medical aid. Here you can watch the first photo and video gallery.
The funeral of Baroness Margaret Thatcher was celebrated today at St.Paul’s Cathedral, at the presence of the Queen Elizabeth II, the Prime Minister David Cameron, the Mayor of London Boris Jonson, and other authorities.
The coffin of the Baroness Thatcher, who died last 8th April for natural causes at the age of 87 in consequence of a stroke, was taken yesterday to Westminster Abbey, where it was celebrated a short religious function, and her body remained there on evening, allowing people to pay her respects. After it has been taken to the nearby House of Parliament, where it has been removed today at 10:00am to celebrate her funeral at St.Paul Cathedral. While Westminster was almost empty and just a few media journalists followed her leaving, St.Paul Cathedral was surrounded by thousands of people, who welcomed her coffin with applauds.
Despite controversial arguments, it has been celebrated as Ceremonial Funeral with fully Military Honors,same as for Princess Lady Diana in 1997, and was a step back to be granted as State Funeral, which in United Kingdom is generally allowed only to kings and princes.
Her coffin was carried to St.Paul with a gun carriage, followed by a solemn military parade.However the public opinion wasn’t really happy to celebrate a State Funeral for her, as her end as Former Prime Minister made a substantial separation between Monarchy and Parliament, giving it the authority and freedom to vote the laws independently from royal influence.
People argued about a State Funeral for her, as well the Funeral Ceremony that she received, also because it cost million of ponds, all at expenses of taxpayers, while the govern continue to carry on with cuts, as the latest Bedroom Tax, very much criticized, whilst a common civil funeral should be usually paid by the missing person’s family.
Although last days, after her death, the public opinion clearly criticized her behavior and and governance during her time as Prime Minister, and her name was dubbed as “Iron Lady”, telling that she made the interest of only the rich class, leaving poorer the poor, today the media, especially the Telegraph, sentenced that her funeral has been paid much respects and welcomed from almost all the people, and the UK Parliament and Monarchy agreed to shut off the rumors.
Anyway the funeral ceremony was welcomed by a group of protesters who showed clear distaste, organizing parties to celebrate her death, which the biggest was carried out in Trafalgar Square Saturday evening, and it has been discouraged by the police authority, who warned the protesters that public disorder would be threaten very seriously.
Last week, after her death, the song Ding Dong, the witch is dead written by Judy Garland, reached the 2nd place on Uk’s pole position, whilst the BBC estimated it would reach the 1st position. Watch the photo gallery.Video Playlist:
