The Street Piano - full story!!

"....Don MacLean famously sang: 'I met a girl who sang the blues/ And I asked her for some happy news/ But she just smiled and turned away. I went down to the sacred store/ Where I'd heard the music years before/ But the man there said the music wouldn't play... And the three men I admire most, the father son and the holy ghost - they caught the last train for the coast, the day the music died'.

But that day never came!! Here's what happened....."

07-08-2006 11:38

"Bring the soldiers home!"
The biggest demonstration against the war held in Israel until now took place on 5 August, 2006, in the heart of downtown Tel-Aviv, an area that is considered especially right-wing. Close to 10,000 demonstrators from all over the country, among them many Arab citizens, marched from Ben-Zion Boulevard, along King George Street, to Magen David Square. There, at the entrance to the Carmel market, a stage was set up. The thousands that did not find place in the square flowed over into Nahlat Binyamin and the other neighboring streets.

"Triple Alliance": The US, Turkey, Israel and the War on Lebanon

06-08-2006 22:13

If the Lebanon war were to escalate into a broader conflict involving Syria, Turkish ground troops could be deployed under the terms of the Israeli-Turkish military alliance. It is worth mentioning that prime ministers Recep Erdogan and Ariel Sharon in a 2005 meeting in Tel Aviv decided to set up a "Hotline for the exchange of intelligence" as part of their evolving military alliance. What this suggests is that Turkey is a potential partner in the ongoing war on Lebanon.

Project Eliminate Censorship!

06-08-2006 18:04

Recent years gave us various examples of censorship. Not unprecedented in history but rather new in its extent if you compare it do to relative freedom the two or three decades before.
This is an effort to counter it. It shows you four examples of open censorship and urges you to fight against it. How? Simply repost and republish it on webpages, in radical magazines, chatrooms, newsgroups, bookshops, ... Electronically, photocopied or read it to your children/parents before going to bed or at the speakers corner.
But do not accept it as a fate that the forces of censorship win the battle.
