Struck down by the High Court as unconstitutional

Save Angela Maria Patterson

27-10-2005 22:33

Angela was born on 13th July 1966 in Jamaica. A number of years ago she was attacked in Kingston when some acid was thrown in her face. This blinded her left eye. She reported the attack to the police, and the police told a gang that she was an informer. She was forced to leave her children and go into hiding because of the threats to her life being made by the gang. Even whilst in hiding the gang found her and shot her, fortunately only wounding her in her leg, however her nephew was killed.

Another 77 on 5 November 2005 !

27-10-2005 20:06

Through one of my contacts I was informed last Saturday that last Friday the US army, after initial skirmishes along the border with Syria, have actually invaded Syria.

This was confirmed later by 2 further contacts - one from Germany and another from the USA.

Remember when the US invaded Iraq, it came to light that they were already bombing strategic targets for quite a while before the official invasion, so it’s highly likely that a similar thing could be happening again.

Fasting in London as I visualise the hurricane of awareness.....

of the neglected abandoned victims of the floods the quake

11 people die in fire in airport holding centre in the Netherlands

27-10-2005 12:38

11 people have died whilst waiting to be expelled from Fortress Europe.

Of course the key issue is not only that people seeking refuge from wars both military and economic are provided with protection but that the welathy nations bleeding their countries dry of resources and skilled people are made to change the policies and practices that are creating the conditions forcing people to flee in such great numbers.
