"In passing the most deplorable Migration Amendment Bill through the House of Representatives at 11am this morning, The Howard government has added another dark victory to its deplorable tally of "achievements" since the Tampa legislation set Australia on course for serious human rights breaches and the undermining of International Conventions," WA Rights group Project SafeCom said this morning.

Hackney Critical Mass (Lebanon Action)

10-08-2006 02:47

Sick of constant wars being fought over greed, racism and control for the world's dwindling natural resources? Disgusted that the government in this country sits back while a murderous, oppressive state brutally attacks another country, just because the UK government wants to keep its ally in an area it's helping rip apart to guarantee the supply of the last few drops of oil?

Highlighting the meaning of “Lanterns on the Lake”, Swindon, 9th Aug 2006

09-08-2006 23:54

Follow the signs...
Peace campaigners in Swindon were in attendance at the annual “Lanterns on the Lake” event at Coate Water, to highlight the reason for the event – the anniversary of the world’s first, and hopefully last, act of nuclear warfare, in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and also to publicise the protest at Brize Norton this coming Saturday. Things got a bit heated when an Israeli man and his wife took exception to the leaflets being handed out, but fortunately it ended with handshakes and good wishes.

Hello Again!

Hope you made it to the demonstration on Saturday. It was a good turnout but it is so important to continue consistent, regular work on the streets to spread information and build solidarity across Britain with those fighting back against Israeli state terrorism, in order to sever British support for the racist, expansionist, colonial settler state.

Call for UN General Assembly: Immediate Ceasefire in Lebanon

Dear Supporter of Peace and Diplomacy,

The most recent news at this writing is that the Israeli Security Cabinet has approved a "widening of the ground offensive" and that Israeli airstrikes on Lebanon would resume "in full force" after the expiration of the partial suspension that followed the massacre in Qana.

As you know, under international law the UN Security Council is supposed to act to stop crimes against peace, but cannot do so in this case because it is paralyzed by the veto of the Bush Administration, which opposes an immediate cease-fire and is backed in this position by the United Kingdom. However, under Resolution 377, "Uniting for Peace," the UN General Assembly can act when the Security Council fails to do so (see "A Road to Peace in Lebanon?" Jeremy Brecher and Brendan Smith, July 27, 2006, .) This procedure has been used 10 times in the history of the UN, often at the initiative of the United States.

Please join us, therefore, in circulating the following petition, calling for the UN General Assembly to act to bring about an immediate cease-fire in Lebanon, Israel, and Gaza. Even a significant movement towards the convening of the General Assembly to consider an immediate, unconditional cease-fire will put significant pressure on the major powers to support an immediate cease-fire.
