Broadmead was split in two on Saturday as 150 Bristol activists blockaded the entrance to US clothes chain store GAP in protest at their use of child labour and sweatshop labour. The demonstration, one of the largest in recent years, was sparked by revelations by a recent BBC Panorama programme that child labour was being used in a Cambodian

Secret Inauguration of Linda Jones, President of the USA

21-01-2001 22:33

Apparently we need more education in the obvious than we do examination of the obscure. OUR government is the citizens’ government. THEIR government is the corporate government.
