Salisbury District Council's controversial new Council Office extension is about to see the felling of about 15 very large treesany day now, (some of which are actually in a Public Park, which means they're not really allowed to cut them down, but do they listen?!!) and the destruction of a 300+ year old walled garden- a small but precious piece of Salisburys history. The garden has been fondly known to the children of Salisbury as !The Secret Garden" for generations untold.

Criminal Mikhail Cherney presents Lord Pearson of Rannoch with the award
Have you heard of the Jerusalem Summit? Have you heard of the Russian oligarch Mikhail Cherney?

The Jerusalem Summit is quite simply a bunch of fascists! Who... Not only held this summit meeting in London, but were allowed to hold it at the House of Lords.

Their main aim is to rid the West of Islam and unite all Christians to resist Islamic values. In their own words, 'the West must unite and resist Islam.'

Preparing for Cheney

22-02-2007 04:26

See how Australian conservatives run! “No Australian should be surprised. In fact I would like to think they would support it ... The people who murdered 100 Australians in Bali trained in this place with these people and that's why we're there." The statement by the Australian Defence Minister Brendan Nelson is his latest despicable attempt to garner support and justify increased Australian military involvement in Afghanistan – the truth is the Howard government is at the beck and call of the Americans, that is why ‘we’ are in Afghanistan, Mr. Nelson. Defence Minister Nelson, in preparation for Dick Cheney’s arrival in Sydney tonight, has resorted to flagrant LIES and K-Mart political strategies to demonstrate to Cheney that Australian conservatives are able emulators of their master’s cheap tricks and lying political methods.

Exclusive: The Official Draft of the Oil and Gas Law of The Iraq Republic

22-02-2007 02:49

Al-Ghad is publishing the full text of the draft Law of Oil & Gas which has been kept away from Iraqi and international public opinion. This will make possible an objective evaluation of this major project and its possible far reaching consequences for the Iraqi people and the world oil industry. We have already published an extensive analysis of the previous draft, by a prominent oil expert, and we are in the process of publishing an update by the same writer, we see no need to introduce this important document.

Solomon's Riots

Whose Carbon Is It, Anyway?

21-02-2007 22:32

This article is about the carbon emissions that many of us don’t know about, or perhaps choose to ignore. It is about the carbon emissions that are only indirectly related to what we do, but are most certainly caused by what we do. It is also about the way we behave, and how that can have a huge impact on those hidden carbon emissions.
