What Rachel Saw: Rachel Corrie & Palestine

16-03-2007 20:30

Like most IDF crimes, this one happened because the people involved no longer saw Corrie as a human being, but as "the other", dehumanized to the point where she could be killed with no second thoughts. (And the Plant's comments will only further demonstrate this.)

These killings only highlight the hatred that is indicative of such fundamentalist and racist ideologies such as Zionism.

Yet more injustice: appeal courts deny Newchurch 3

16-03-2007 16:31

Jonny Ablewhite, along with John Smith and Kerry Whitburn, had their appeal today against the draconian sentence of 12 years for activities related to Newchurch guinea pig farm. They received no reduction in sentence. The prosecution were even told they didn't need to present their case. This is indicative of the corruption of the judicial system and the state's repression of animal rights activists!

Ola and family Released From Detention

16-03-2007 13:23

Olawumi Alao and her three children were released on 13 March 2007 from Yarl's Wood immigration removal centre (IRC) in Bedfordshire. Olawumi and her children had been held at the prison for almost 6 weeks. For what reason??? They are now back at their home in Liverpool from where they were kidnapped by snatch squads early on 1 February 2007. But for an injunction filed by her solicitor, the racist authorities would have deported them by 5 February. Ola and her youngest child, suffer from Hepatitis B, but were not been given any treatment at Yarl's Wood detention centre. On 12 February, the 1-year-old, Fayad was violently sick - but still he got no medical treatment. Ola was refused bail, because, said the Home Office, she was likely to 'abscond'; but Ola has lived in Liverpool for the past 18 months, without 'absconding', reporting to Reliance House in Liverpool regularly and keeping her children in the local schools. She did not 'abscond' even after the immigration service thugs twice raided her house whilst the family was out. Thanks to all those who wrote and emailed the councillors and MP about Ola and her children. The campaign goes on, Ola is still in danger of deportation, so watch this space...

Defend Ola and Family!

Defend all asylum seekers!

No to deportations!

No to British state racism!
