17-09-2003 15:07

Despite the billions being spent on the war and occupation, the Iraqis are suffering shortages of water and electricity, and face total disruption to their everyday rights. After years of dictatorship, they are denied any democratic voice or say in the running of their country.

17-09-2003 14:48

At 2 pm on Friday 19 September 2003 at Gloucester Crown Court, a hearing is expected to decide if peace activists can dispute the legality of the Iraq war at their trial. Philip Pritchard and Toby Olditch , known as 'The B-52 Two', who are currently on bail, are charged with conspiracy to cause criminal damage when they tried to disarm a B52 warplane at RAF Fairford in March 2003.

Rumsfeld Admits No 9/11-Iraq Link

17-09-2003 14:42

Despite the fact that in a recent poll 70 percent of Americans now believe that Saddam Hussein assisted in the September 11 attacks, Rumsfeld said at a Pentagon news conference, "I've not seen any indication that would lead me to believe that I could say that."

It is not clear why well over a majority of Americans believe that Saddam Hussein had a part in the September 11 attacks. Power and Interest News Report analyst Matthew Riemer believes "that this widely held misbelief is a direct result of the speeches and statements made by various members of the Bush administration including the president himself, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, and Colin Powell."

The 17th Of September

The 17th Of September

Demonstrate 1:00 p.m. Huddersfield Town Hall.

So the British National Party (BNP) has been voted in to yet another district in West-Yorkshire because the voting public at large has no idea haw the local government is actually run. While I fully believe that demonstrations like the one happening to day out side Huddersfield Town Hall are needed to let the BNP know they are not wanted in our town. We do need to let people know exactly how the local government works and how the BNP will implement their policies.
