Thessaloniki Prisoners update 29/09

29-09-2003 10:55

It has now been over 3 months since the violent arrests and imprisonment of 7 activists at the massive EU demonstrations in Thessaloniki in June 21st, 2003.
The information from Greece amongst comrades and lawyers have been contradictary and confusing. Information we are told as facts turns into mere rumours. Therefore as far as we know, from Simon Chapman, we will repeat here
and can only report at this stage as fact as of Sept. 29.

Conscience or Complicity: The Altered State Solution

29-09-2003 04:35

The United States continues to support Israel with BILLIONS of tax dollars while Israel blatantly disregards International and Humanitarian Laws, especially and most poignantly against children collected in mass retaliations who are locked away indefinitely in prisons. Meanwhile US mainstream medias continue their biased and slanted coverage reporting one terror victim and not another.

Over 1,500 violent civilian deaths in occupied Iraq

28-09-2003 22:55

From April 14th to 31st August, 2,846 violent deaths were recorded by the Baghdad city morgue. When corrected for pre-war death rates in the city a total of at least 1,519 excess violent deaths in Baghdad emerges from reports based on the morgue's records.

IBC's latest study is the first comprehensive count to adjust for the comparable "background level" of deaths in Baghdad in recent pre-war times. It is therefore an estimate of additional deaths in the city directly attributable to the breakdown of law and order following the US takeover and occupation of Baghdad.
