US Soldiers to America: ''Bring us home now; we’re dying for oil!"

13-10-2003 20:37

I had the unique opportunity to interview five US military servicemen who just got back from Iraq, or in the case of two men, corresponded with their wives so that I could ask questions of these soldiers by mail. When the two I corresponded with came back just last week, I was able to complete the interviews I started several months ago with some new details on how the war is actually going.

A View on The "People's War" in Nepal
By: Sage Radachowsky, posted - 12.10.2003 17:47
Imc Germany:

2003 September 18 -- Western rural Nepal (location cannot be disclosed for security reasons)

Fog slowly rolls down the hill through the pine trees. I can see eight waterfalls from where I sit, and the quiet immense majesty of Dhaulagiri, one of the highest mountains in the world. I sit in front of the house drinking tea. But the quiet of this scene belies the intense conflict raging here, reflected in daily gun battles, bomb explosions, and existing at all times inside everyone's heart and mind.

The Party's Over

13-10-2003 13:37

With the end of the Tory Party Conference last week we saw the end of the boring party political season, at least for the three main political parties. Did the mainstream media have nothing better to report? For the three main parties, it was about power, power for them to retain or gain power. For the Tories and Neo-Labour it was about the leader remaining in power. The people did not figure at all, for Neo-Labour, even their own members did not seem to count.

But it does not always have to be thus. There are alternatives.

Inevitable GM pollution

13-10-2003 10:09

An article from Friday's Daily Mail (10.10.03) outlining the latest research on GM. Interesting quotes revealing the amount of known cross contamination in the UK and affirming that barrier crops don't work.

Although crop trashing has obviously had a powerful safeguarding effect more anti-GM gardeners are obviously needed.
