Think again - or shame on you Brighton Council

28-01-2009 15:17

I was very sorry to hear Brighton Council failed to shut down EDO on this occassion. Just how many jobs does this sick company provide?

The State of Mississippi versus Jamie Scott and Gladys Scott: My First Encounter

28-01-2009 11:02

This would become an education that re-directed every thought flowing as I drove that big truck from South Carolina. I left Chicago with the Master of Jurisprudence and absolutely no desire to follow my original dreams.

The following day, on 4 January 2009, Israeli occupying forces bombed the same area killing one Palestinian.

The planes are still buzzing overhead, but there have been no explosions near me today. However this supposed ceasefire from Israeli’s side since 2am does not seem to have extended to Beit Hanoun, where there was shelling this morning and F16s were attacking.

You can see 4 video clips I took during the attacks on the Al Quds hospital and local people, at on the ISM website here, including my medic mates rescuing Jasmeen after she’d seen her sister and dad shot.
