03-12-2003 02:07The following article appeared on "Eleutherotipia", an Athens daily that could be described as a Guardian- equivalent. It brings bad (but also expected) news: The Greek State doesn't give up and with new, ridiculous claims tries to fit up Simon and the rest of the Saloniki 7. Will we let them do so?
PLEASE NOTE: What follows is a translation of the article, as genuine and precise as possible. No comments have been added and no info has been altered.

02-12-2003 21:54While 9/11 Skeptics await the results of the 9/11 commission with an open mind, we are also firmly convinced that the U.S. government is incapable of conducting a truly independent and unhindered investigation into the Sept. 11 phenomena. We view our work as an international citizen’s or people’s investigation of the same, one in which many active minds have long since come together in a fruitful and increasingly international dialogue.
02-12-2003 21:05it was an idea put forward by Peter at the London ESF meeting in November. to have a gathering of people interested in the idea of a social forum as a space rather than a big corporate jamboree for 'red' ken etc. Its for people interested in talking together, sharing food, music, politics etc for a weekend camping in a grassy space in Derbyshire. Derbyshire is not definite, but why not? It would be nice to go north for a change!

02-12-2003 16:04On Thursday 4 December Cambridge City Council is debating a bye-law which is intended to "control anti-social behaviour arising from the drinking of alcohol in our public places". The bye-law would give police the power to "stop people from drinking alcohol in public places if they were causing, or were likely to cause, harassment, alarm or distress to other members of the public." Police would also be able to confiscate alcohol and impose a fine in the event of non co-operation.

We handed out Strike Journals and a press release about a parliamentary resolution (EDM) from MP John McDonnell defending our picket and Brian Haw’s two-year 24-hour protest in Parliament Square. (They can budget £10m to protect an un-wanted-dead-or-alive non-president, but Brian can’t get police protection from physical assault.)
