For your next summer flights, you may have to check to see whether your clothes are ‘peaceful enough’: T-shirts with offensive images could be a danger to other people.
Is that real? Is your gun real?
Gun T-shirt – ‘it is a security risk’ at a London airport. BBC News. 2 June 2008.
A man wearing a T-shirt depicting a cartoon character holding a gun was stopped from boarding a flight by the security at Heathrow’s Terminal 5.
PRESS RELEASE Updated – 20 June 08 – www.Check-Check.org
Online since September 2007, check-check.org focuses on airport security regulations. In particular, we put the spotlight on the tactics of fear-mongering that are being employed in airports – for some time now authorities have been with people’s minds in their attempt to generate a culture of anxiety.
Recently, Airport Security Measures have come under strong criticism. People are finally feeling free enough to debate the absurd hysteria and exploitation that has defined the post-9/11 world.
We would like the image of our project to serve two purposes. Firstly, we wish to join with and contribute to the recent wave of support for rationalism and independent thinking. At the same time, we wish to clearly oppose the counteroffensive of certain specific groups – those who would maintain and increase social controls, those who are involved in the business of security devices, and those who promulgate a vision of the world as being in a state of emergency.
Our efforts and research continues in this area because we believe it to be a symbolic representation of this sort of war propaganda. These issues affect everyone, regardless of whether they are involved in the debates surrounding politics, war or freedom.
So, We are delighted to introduce new stuff about the Transportation Security Administration:
( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transportation_Security_Administration#Criticisms )
- An art installation which displays ordinary objects seen in a new, dangerous light. In the context of the airport, many objects that ordinarily seem harmless are seen as potential weapons of destruction.
- A blog with selected updated news about TSA security measures, like the funny t-shirt case and other incredible stories which happen daily in all the airports of this small world.
- We are glad to announce our detailed interview requested by Voices of Resistance from Occupied London in the Issue Three, Urgencies of Everyday life: Between Here and the Outside
- And we are continuing our online platform in order to deprogram people from PsyOps of the Security Theatre. Because “Contrary to state-owned media or international political agencies, the Internet is said to be an effective therapeutic tool for a variety of symptoms and disorders, for its displaced, non-personal, but direct connection.” Check-Check.org wants to get in touch with all beings suffering from the ambivalence of reality and would give you the opportunity of a self psycho-analyzation in the airport scenario.
Now are you scared of your next flights? Why? Let’s relax with the anti-propaganda pop music below.
