Presidential Candidate: Senator Reid was Right, War is Lost

10-05-2007 18:11

Reid is now opposing the Iraq War because the U.S. is losing; he initially supported the war and backed the invasion. The war is another imperial adventure by the U.S. and there is a growing divide, by those supporters of U.S. imperialism, that a continued war is weakening U.S. imperialism.

Advice for Hessle's party victims.

10-05-2007 17:19

It has come to our attention that the police are collaring various individuals the consider to be part of the 'riot' in Hyde Park last weekend. This is a cynical attempt by West Yorkshire constabulary to protect themselves against charges of brutality. By making arrests they are seeking to justify their over-the-top actions and win better publicity for themselves in the face of videos being released onto the internet showing their actions for just what they are.

London Counter-Recruitment Picket, Friday May18th 1:30pm

10-05-2007 16:46

Next Friday - 18th April – at the Bloomsbury armed forces recruitment centre, people will be going armed with fliers to give a counter view of what life is like in the army. The Bloomsbury recruitment centre is located in the same building as the Defence Export Services Organisation (DESO), the government's arms sales agency.

With the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan raging the chances of being killed and injured have increased dramatically over the past few years. But even if ex-services personnel make it back alive many are still scared for life from their experiences.

We encourage everyone to help us hand out fliers and let people know what it's really like in the military!

Canadian Justice - Britannia style

10-05-2007 13:02

The website denoted within this email I recieved is not for the faint hearted and the crimes described are the root of the evil within our sick society.

Who writes the laws and who bangs the gavel that sets these monsters free?

When all ofhumanity would forever isolate the paedophiles from society, how can a police officer tell any parent that one is on the loose when he has just been set free?

Beyond the hyperbole, what next for Northern Ireland?

10-05-2007 12:51

The ceremonial opening of the power-sharing Executive at Stormont, with Sinn Fein’s Martin McGuinness sitting alongside Ian Paisley of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), is portrayed as a fairy tale ending to the Northern Ireland peace process. In fact, it is more akin to a business agreement between two hostile parties charged with opening up Northern Ireland PLC to global investors.
