Edinburgh Climate Change Demonstration

A-capella group "Protest in Harmony" entertained the gathering proteste

December, the 3rd was propagated as the International Day against Climate Change .
Worldwide, demonstrations and protests have been announced to coincide with the meeting of the World Leaders in Montreal.
In Edinburgh about 200 protesters stood up against rain, cold and Xmas shopping to protest against the environmental-hostile, carbondioxide-blasting politics of the Scottish Executive via increased road-building schemes, such as the M74 extension, the Dalkeith Bypass and A701 Alignment, airport extensions and others.

ACLU, el-Masri SUING CIA for Flight to Prison, Torture

03-12-2005 19:25

The famous "26 Planes"
CIA prisons and CIA flights are a growing front-page story, and Khaled el-Masri is a good example of why we all should oppose extrajudcial flights and prisons. El-Masri is the first to sue the CIA for "rendition," or kidnapping-to-torture. The ACLU in New York will assist. This article presents the kind of information they will use. He can't sue the CIA? There are private individuals he can sue, including top officials like the CIA official, the Deputy Director of Operations, who authorizes each rendition and each of 6 steps in the escalation of CIA torture. Once-proud Germany allows its citizens to be treated thus: Khaled, a German citizen charged and suspected of nothing, was arrested on vacation as he crossed the Macedonian border on New Year's Eve 2003. He was transported by a US company, Premier Executive Transport, on a 737 jet to a secret US gulag in Aghanistan. He was dumped in Albania 5 months later when the CIA learned they had the wrong man. It would seem Premier, who provided the plane, and whatever company supplied the pilots, could be sued as well. Many such suits could ensue.
