America and Israel: the embedding of fear, the conquest of hope

02-10-2004 09:31

Bubba and Jebus
As Israeli and American fortunes become ever more entwined it gives hope to the Armageddonists who seek the Rapture and the destruction of the unsaved. Will that mean that America isn't going to leave Iraq? Doesn't look like it, does it?

Stills from the film
The British Court of Appeal is hearing the case of 120 coach passengers who had their human rights violated on 22 March 2003 when they tried to attend an anti-war demonstration.

London Sound Study: Online art exhibition and free mp3 download

01-10-2004 15:52

Boyle Family: London Sound Study
Exhibition from 1 Oct to until 7 November 2004 on

The sound study project began in October 2002 when Boyle Family asked visitors to Construction art space to throw darts at an unseen target. This was a mixed-up A-Z map of Greater London which extended beyond the M25. 79 sites were pinpointed by the darts and each visitor was also asked to choose a random time – one of the minutes of the day. Over the following months Boyle Family went to each site and recorded one minute of its sound at the given time.
This sampling of a moment gives the work a filmic suggestivity and a zen-like quality. From 1 Oct, the files will be available to listen and to download from onto your computer or iPod for free.
With this web-based and aural exhibition, the Centre of Attention seeks to further its examination of the formalities of production, distribution and consumption of art. It also provides an accessible, easy and alternative interface to the traditional gallery experience.

British hostage in Iraq Kenneth Bigley is seen in this video made available from his captors on the internet Thursday Sept. 30 2004. Bigley was abducted from a Baghdad home two weeks before along with two Americans who have since been beheaded by a group demanding the relase of females from American-controlled prisons in Iraq.

US plans to send terrorist suspects abroad to be tortured

01-10-2004 14:21

A new bill being considered by the U.S. Congress would legalise "extraordinary rendition" - the practice of transporting terrorist suspects to countries where they may be tortured, even if they have no previous connection with the country in question. The measure is likely to pass because it is contained in the 9/11 Recommendations Implementation Act of 2004, which implements the findings of the 9/11 Commission. However, legalizing extraordinary rendition was not one of the Commission's recommendations.
