Global Eavesdroppoers Tight Lipped about Voice Recognition.

12-02-2005 00:42

There exists an integrated global network to extract information and intelligence illicitly from all electronically transmitted messages.It’s coverage can be assumed to be total. British intelligence benefits greatly from being is a minor partner to the United States in this system, by having limited access to the collected data - this is what puts the ‘special’ in Britain's relationship with the US. None of our European neighbours have access to this mighty all encompassing system: they have their own far more limited systems.

Muharram the month of revolution

11-02-2005 20:44

Equity in economic distribution ought to be firmly instituted
As the month of Muharram, the month of revolution, the month of resistance to the aggressors and resistance to injustice,...We can see from the actions of the Amerikkkan Empire today that it is hell bent on acting out it's plans for global hegemony,..., to usurp such resources from the poor and destitute and re-apportion them to the fatcats that helped to create and sustain the Empire. To spread the corruption and vice that infects it's own society and that it's own people speak out against.... from those inside Occupied Amerikkka, to those in Occupied Iraq, Occupied Palestine, etc.

Elections under occupation

11-02-2005 18:37

The territories occupied by Israel that should constitute a future Palestinian state (the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem) are just that - under military occupation. It is currently the longest military occupation in the world, dating back to 1967. In the run up to this past 9th of January, the Palestinians here did everything they could to run an election as professionally as possible under harsh constraints from the Israeli state. Contrary to the racist picture painted every day in the western media, the Palestinian people understand what democracy is and how to get it. And they understand that the primary thing preventing democracy is the Israeli military occupation. Democracy under occupation is an oxymoron. Since the first intifada in the late 80’s it has been crystal clear that the vast majority of Palestinians recognise the fact that Israel exists and is not going to go away. Even before this, the “rejectionist Arabs” of Palestine had in reality been trying to find ways to live alongside Israel. At every turn, these moves are blocked by the US government, which -beyond the rhetoric- has been rejectionist in practice for a long time, supporting Israeli state terrorism no matter which political party is in government in either country.

Oppression and Resistance in Idhna

11-02-2005 18:23

After my first stint in Hebron over election day, I went back to Jerusalem to gather my thoughts, do some laundry and decide on my next move. After a few days, I decided that I would go back to Hebron for the last week of my trip as the limits of spending a day here and a day there had become clear to me. As luck would have it, the Hebron ISM group came to Jerusalem to spend the night because they had been to a nearby meeting in the afternoon, so we had a mini reunion. Far too early the next morning (the 14th of January) we headed back down to Hebron. We met one of the ISM coordinator’s downtown and headed off to Idhna - yet another area soon to be devastated by the Wall. A demonstration had been planned there and our coordinator had arranged for us to meet with some local families too.

Squat & social centre news

11-02-2005 13:04

Lots of squatting stories in the news and it's not all bad. positive stories from the independent and in Camden New Journal and Ham and High recently... though a big boo to the wankers at the Twickenham and Richmond newspaper for their continued biased scare stories e.g. Fears people may use empty building. Norwich Evening News also seem to have developed an obsession.
