The Arms industry dominates EU Defence Policy

20-07-2005 09:29

The European Union Defence policy is increasingly influenced by the interests of the arms industry. The arms industry was deeply involved in the drafting of the European Convention and is also over-represented in many influential advisory committees on an EU level. This way, the interests of the arms industry have taken a central role in the determination of EU policy, as is shown in the report released today “The emerging EU Military-Industrial Complex – Arms industry lobbying in Brussels”, by Frank Slijper in cooperation with the Transnational Institute.

“ Las elecciones de octubre podrían ser una verdadera hecatombe de legitimidad para el “Capital-Parlamentarismo”, que podría desembocar en una crisis constituyente aún más profunda que la del 2001. Un “NO” constituyente, una abstención revolucionaria activa, un boicot legal que destruya la forma más desarrollada de despotismo del capital sobre el trabajo: la democracia burguesa”.

Custody as the challenge to corrections

20-07-2005 06:11

There is significant evidence that prison life and society tend to exacerbate the behavioural and social determinants of crime. Violent, inhuman, unsafe, confrontational, and exploitative prison settings will distort appropriate social and moral messages consistent with crime prevention. A reluctance to deal with illiteracy, drug abuse, anger, indolence, and marginalisation will leave offender populations ill-prepared for social reintegration. An under-resourcing of pre-release programmes will compound the problem.

Karl Rove: PARENTS ABANDONED HIM--George Bush Can't

20-07-2005 00:39

Whom Would You Hang?
Today Bush says he will fire for convictions, not mere leaks. The consensus of lawyers is that Karl Rove will be indicted in the Valerie Plame outing case -- and not for what you think. Special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald appears to have a slam-dunk case under Title 18, Sec. 641, USC (which is NOT about outing a covert agent) just as the DOJ did for leaker Jonathan Randel, who got a year in prison. Karl Rove was abandoned by both of his parents -- the man he called Dad left home, Rove found out "Dad" wasn't his father after all (his aunt and uncle "outed" this at the dinner table), and his mother committed suicide.
