19-10-2004 15:01

With Love
Wednesday evening at 9:00. BBC2 is to broadcast the first episode of a three-part documentary series called
The Power of Nightmares: The Rise of the Politics of Fear. This television channel is off limits to most of the world. But i have also heard that this really should be a program that should be payed attention to.
(this coming from someone who do not own a tv) My "request" is, if anyone have the equipment to record this program and make it available for download online, i would very greatful. I am a part of a larger network that "distributes", profitfree ofcause, information and documentaries that attempts to change the minds of the passive television consumers. Most of the network exists outside of the UK, which means we dont have a chance to "get" this tv program. Please exuse my english. it is not my "main" language.. I hope someone can help me... if you can. please write me at:

Urgent Action - Please support Luke Winston-Jones

19-10-2004 12:38

Only days after the High Court ruled that it is OK for doctors to refuse to offer life support to Charlotte Whyatt, the family of another disabled baby are facing the same Right to Life battle.

Luke Winston-Jones's mother Ruth will be at the High Court in London this coming Thursday and Friday to fight for her son's life.

As Ruth says "Luke is a beautiful child who has real quality of life and is full of personality. Luke’s biggest health problem at the moment is the hole he has in his heart which Alder Hey and other hospitals in the UK have refused to correct due to the fact that Luke has Edwards syndrome. Luke is being refused the treatment he so vitally needs, even though children with Edwards can live many years."

Luke's family have asked disabled people and their allies to show their solidarity by coming to the courts on either 21st or 22nd October and or to sign the following petition.

If you want to get involved simply cut and paste the following and add your name and address on sending.


We do not think that judges and medical staff should be able to decide on who should or should not receive life saving treatment on the basis of disability / impairment. We support Luke Winston-Jones Equal Rights to Life. We call upon Parliament to amend the Disability Discrimination Act so that disabled children like Luke have equal right to life and access to life saving treatment.
