Genova G8 Cops get off as the evidence disapears into thin air

18-01-2007 11:44

Genova, well it was a set up from the start cops beat the living shit out of sleeping innocents on plant the basis of evidence in the form of a crate full of petrol bombs, it kooked like an open and shut case. But today "La Repubblica" (masso'cronace)newspaper reports that the petrol bombs are no more they are in fact ex petrol bombs and the case against the cops is as the they say "finito" no evidence no case. The whole trial and inquiry into the events of the G8 in Genoa have been a farce.

Germany G8 - 12km Security Fence Construction Begins!

18-01-2007 10:22

Last monday (15th jan) authorities in Germany began erecting a 12km security fence around the area of the 2007 G8 summit venue. The fence costing 12.5M Euros will take 15 weeks to complete. Not missing a trick activists were on hand to unwelcome the fence, hanging a banner saying "Fence In Capitalism!"

The fence consisting of 4,600 dark green steel segments weighing 75 kg (165.3 lb) will be 2.5 metres (8 ft 2.4 in) high and 2.45 metres wide. The segments are attached to cement pillars weighing 900 kg each and topped with razor wire - to prevent anyone from tunneling beneath the fence, 50-cm long steel grating is also being sunk into the ground.

Australian PM outlines indefinite military agenda in South Pacific

18-01-2007 09:43

Interventions in the South Pacific
The billions of dollars in public funds being poured into the military represent a massive social misappropriation. While funding for public health and education, social infrastructure, and welfare and social services have all been gutted by successive state and federal governments, “defence” spending has skyrocketed. Australia is now the eleventh largest military spender in the world and ranks ahead of countries such as Israel, Turkey, Brazil, and Iran.

Leaked report details plans to cut jobs and pay in National Health Service

18-01-2007 08:21

The Labour government in Britain is preparing huge cuts in the workforce of the National Health Service. Excerpts from a leaked draft workforce strategy for 2008-11 by the Department of Health (DoH) were published in the Health Service Journal this month.

The draft proposals are part of the Treasury’s Comprehensive Spending Review (CSR) from 2008-11, expected to be published later this year.

According to the report there is to be a “sharp reduction” in NHS staff numbers this year—a cut of 2.7 percent, or 37,000 jobs. Following the job cuts, the DoH proposes a recruitment drive in order to meet a December 2008 deadline to reduce maximum waiting times to 18 weeks, but it envisages “a clear dip” in “demand” for nurses and doctors after this deadline has passed.

Australia: More race hate from the political and mass media establishment

18-01-2007 07:22

All we're going to get is islamophobia
Big media switches over to super race hate campaigns again no doubt to cover up for John Howard, while he gets a buzz in Broome WA on holidays? Or is this what we're going to get until their big media and political establishment can once again shrug off their responsibilities and complicity in their wide spread lies and hate at home and their killing in Iraq, which includes torture, and rendition. Once again this is about what someone is alleged to have said, all ears open. But what about corruption who's going to deal with that? Hey Howard? What about you Dud? No not big media! If it's left up to big media all we're going to get is islamophobia because it suits them, is divisive and is a great way to cover-up for their lack of responsibility. Thanks!
