Iraq Elections hits UK - Only Large numbers Call for Its Boycott!

25-12-2004 17:56

On Jan 30th, Iraqis from all over the UK will be voting for the first time, in an illegal election, that is not recognised by International law because it is a government that has been established by the USA which is also an occupying power within a country that is still at war.

In the UK, Iraqis are also going to be able to vote for fellow Iraqis, who also happen to be fellow British Citizens like Aiyad Allawi - the Prime Minister and through the process of democracy, they will be allowed to govern a foreign country.

Love or loath Saddam, atleast he had an Iraqi passport!

Man in Knife Attack Should Not Be Feared As a Major Threat to Society.

24-12-2004 09:01

Detectives are questioning a man after a series of knife attacks in London yesterday. Sadly, it left one man dead and five people injured, of which four are in hospital and two of them are in a critical condition.

Sensationalising such attacks, which are very rare, does little to advance the way our society deals with mental health issues, and deal with the prejudice suffered by those with mental health problems.

New Zealand/Aotearoa GE FREE Victory!

24-12-2004 04:44

In a major victory for the GE Free movement in Aotearoa/ New Zealand, the main target of the current GE Free campaign stated in a news item that KFC are "committed" to continue using GE-free soy from Inghams Enterprises LTD "as long as world supply enabled it to". (See:,2106,3136633a6579,00.html) KFC had been sourcing soy chicken feed from Inghams who had a history of sourcing GE Soy feed but who had been pressured to source several GE Free shipments. Succesful campaigning has seen them continue doing so instead of reverting back to GE soy which was expected.

The power of social forums: 3000 words on why we should fight for them

23-12-2004 17:42

"Once the logic of power is adopted, the struggle against power is already lost… for what is at issue in the revolutionary transformation of the world is not /whose/ power but the very existence of power." [Holloway / Peláez]

Throughout the ESF process, I kept on having this dark vision: the European Social Forum office in London as an encampment deep in the Congolese Jungle. Like the Heart of Darkness – Ken Livingstone a 21^st Century Kurtz. Picture him: lurking in shadow, brooding in the last rays of a blood red sunset, deep within his humid, plastic-plant-filled office. Picture him: at the end of a long, dark corridor lined with the heads of SWP members and GLA officials who displeased him…
