31-12-2006 12:17The execution of the murderer, Saddam Hussein, by American organised criminals, via their proxies in Iraq, highlights the fact that criminals vying for power determine the course of the world. The coalition of Bush, Blair and Howard is directly responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians yet these leaders commit their crimes with impunity. The defining principle is not law (as is claimed) it is brute force! Economic and military power determines who is a ‘criminal’ and who is a ‘saviour’, regardless of the similarity of the acts committed.

On December 30th, 2006, former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein was executed by hanging just hours after the Americans handed him over to the Iraqi authorities.

Human Rights Watch came out against the execution stating that the execution "following a deeply flawed trial for crimes against humanity marks a significant step away from respect for human rights and the rule of law in Iraq."

31-12-2006 07:21As usual, the December London ride passed off successfully and uneventfully without a police retinue. Despite bad weather there was an estimated turnout of 150 cyclists. This begs the question why are the police needed at all on the other eleven rides of the year when they can't be bothered on the 12th? Are they really there to intimidate and discourage people from attending the ride and not to help and protect them as they often claim?

30-12-2006 23:20Do people know that the trial of saddam was not only illegal but full of basic violations. The US has done it again: violated international law in plain sight!
30-12-2006 21:22In contrary to the often hypocritical ''Christmas'' approach, The Birth of the Child is no sentimental story about ''A Little Child in a Manger'', but the reality of the exclusion of the poor, persecution by the State and seeking illegal asylum in a foreign country
That's the reason, this Story is based on respect towards any human being, regardless descent or committed crime
30-12-2006 21:16The silence of the western antiwar movement on the lynching of Saddam Hussein is deafening and is increasingly beginning to prove what a lot of discerning people have suspected all along – that the mainstream anti-war movement (including large parts of its left wing) in the west is the well concealed left boot of western imperialism, the conscience of the conqueror.
30-12-2006 20:13Uri Dan, an Israeli journalist who died recently, and was close to the former Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, published, before his death, a book in which he accuses Sharon of planning the assassination of the late Palestinian president, Yasser Arafat.
The book was published in France and the author states that Arafat was poisoned by a direct decision from Sharon who had a phone call with the U.S president George W. Bush in April 2004, and decided to assassinate Arafat after the call.
30-12-2006 19:51Despite the increasingly overwhelming evidence of the impact that meat & dairy farming has on the planet, none of the national environmental campaigning organisations currently promote plant based diets. Wouldn`t it be great if we could influence groups like Friends of the Earth and Greenpeace to encourage their supporters and the general public to adopt a veggie/vegan diet for the benefit of the planet?!! Well, now we have an opportunity to do just that.
organised a Reclaim the Night event to remember them and to make the
statement that they would not be staying indoors, afraid.
