Orwellian Eye-in-the-Sky Gets Orwellian Fanfare in Liverpool Echo

03-08-2006 20:35

Cops unveil their new cameras
In a breathtakingly cynical strategy, Merseyside Police have linked their purchase of eye-in-the-sky camera technology with this week's 'moral panic' - mini-motos. In a breathtakingly credulous piece of 'journalism', the Liverpool Echo's Luke Traynor has bought their story hook, line and sinker.

Appello per una mobilitazione antirazzista a Lampedusa il 9 e 10 sette

03-08-2006 18:56

La Sicilia è diventata negli ultimi anni la frontiera Sud dell’Europa e Lampedusa è il suo avamposto. Il tentativo di mascherare l’inarrestabile fenomeno politico-sociale delle migrazioni come un problema di ordine pubblico da contrastare, con la crescente militarizzazione delle frontiere e provvedimenti di polizia, ha prodotto soltanto l’istituzione di nuove forme di apartheid.

Doomsday Global Warming: Fact-Sheet / What To Do?

03-08-2006 16:00

Drastic and tragic Climate Change is well underway, and will worsen unto Doomsday if we do not take drastic measures to stop its progress. Energy conservation is at best stopgap. The development of Green (clean, renewable, cheap) energy sources is indispensable. This has never been a particularly difficult technical problem. The Problem has been primarily political, necessitating a crucial political change --- Polluters' Power overridden by People's Power.

The US lost an important country today

03-08-2006 12:51

The 'Project for a New American Century' is sinking so fast that only the blood besmirched American flag is still visible above the ruins, the genocides, cemeteries and globally growing waves of intense contempt.

Hizballah: A Primer

03-08-2006 12:44

Hizballah, the Lebanese Shi‘i movement whose militia is fighting the Israeli army in south Lebanon, has been cast misleadingly in much media coverage of the ongoing war. Much more than a militia, the movement is also a political party that is a powerful actor in Lebanese politics and a provider of important social services.

While it has many political opponents in Lebanon, Hizballah is very much of Lebanon -- a fact that Israel’s military campaign is highlighting.
