Open Letter to Andrew Marr, Presenter, Start the Week on Radio 4, the BBC
This is an open letter that I am going to ask the people--many of whom are
prominent academics-- I have copied in to circulate as widely as possible,
to draw the attention of people to the egregious manner in which you dealt
with the follow-up this morning's show on 'The Legacy of Empire'. I am
appalled and shocked at your biased introduction to the evening phone-in.
You use dismissive words like 'blarney', 'aggressive', and 'too much heat'

13-06-2006 15:53What the group doesn't say is that their attendees all share a particular (Right-Wing) political perspective. The media/bookseller attendees always bother me.

13-06-2006 13:21We welcome the granting of full and final accession of Haiti to membership of CARICOM, and the fact that the election of a President and parliament opens the way for Haiti's re-engagement with other Caribbean states. Haiti has suffered from a long and dire political and economic crisis, and there is now a rare opportunity for Caribbean neighbours to support progressive and constructive change in Haiti.
We believe that this opportunity should not be squandered and call on the CARICOM Secretariat and CARICOM member states to commit to a specific package of support for the country. With this in mind, we present the following recommendations on areas where we believe CARICOM could provide support to Haiti:

13-06-2006 11:03Cuts and job losses will devastate health services. The NHS debt of £800m is less than 1% of its total budget. The government could easily afford to cancel the debt and cancel job cuts. Join together to make them give us the money to run the NHS.

13-06-2006 09:00As the House of Commons 'Select committee' on the 'Crossrail Bill' hears formal presentation of objections from several individuals and local groups in the Brick Lane and Whitechapel area in the Portcullis House, in Westminster, London SW1starting at 1000 Hrs [0900 GMT] today [13 June 2006], the Khoodeelaar! Campaign is gearing up its pressure on the 'new' Tower Hamlets Council, which has been the single most culpable 'democratic entity' that has touted against the local community and has brought upon the Eats End the massive threat of the Crsosrail attacks. The only democratic and constitutional defence of the community should have been a democratically elected body, the local council! Instead, it is the grassroots community based Khoodeelaar! That has had to be established to defend the community against the treachery and betrayal of the Blaired local council! The battle continues!

12-06-2006 21:29The pause given to immigrant parents and students will end on June 30. Thousands of children, adolescents and their families risk mass deportation. Their lives and their future will end. We will not allow these infamies to be done in our name. Every one of us is ready to help, guide and protect in whatever way is possible. When they seek refuge, we will not close our doors but will give shelter and food ; we will not denounce them to the police.
