06-07-2007 13:24The debate in the House of Lords earlier this week on the highly contested Mental Hill Bill lacked vital information from the CRE, but ended with a call for a legal challenge to be mounted, on account of the Bill’s failure to meet the legal requirements of Race Relations laws.
06-07-2007 12:37Between the 7th and 8th of July a conference is taking place followed by a protest camp and a 'summer of dissent' in Reykjavik, Iceland. The country's pristine, and often protected, wilderness is being systematically destroyed by the aluminum industry and national power company in their hunger for cheap energy and increased profits. The environmental impact is vast, both globally and locally. We struggle against these crimes, and if you wish to support us, visit our website and join the fight to save Europe's last remaining wilderness.
06-07-2007 12:07The creation idea is used to take away the sinister quality fromnature.. Faith is an attitude toward the world.. Faith is not a substitute for knowledge but a reflective relation with knowledge.. Faith begins from its own reasons. Where faith begins, thinking begins again.. God is not necessary because God is more than necessary, not less than necessary.

06-07-2007 09:31Australia’s Minister for Defence Brendan Nelson yesterday acknowledged that maintaining control over Iraq’s vast oil reserves was a critical factor behind the ongoing US-led occupation. His comments came just before Prime Minister John Howard delivered a major foreign policy address, similarly stressing the need to ensure “energy security” amid growing “great power competition” in the Middle East.
06-07-2007 08:51An Update of Climate Science From Around the World
This is a collection of articles from google alerts, and a few sites such as NOAA from the past year and a half. It is very compelling information mostly not published in the American corporate media, and shows why the energy giants are spending many millions on their massive dis-information campaign. Please pass this on and post it everywhere you can. And please sign the petition being promoted this weekend with the global environmental music festival.

06-07-2007 08:02As the aging carrier USS K(Sh)itty Hawk made its way into Sydney Harbour, Oz defence minister Brendan (studs) Nelson announced on national radio that oil was a major factor in Australia's (criminal) involvement in Iraq. Howard hoped this apparent rogue statement from one of his loyal minister’s would create political hysteria and grab headlines internationally and he was right! Setting the agenda and stealing the debate are well known tactics of Howard. Few possess the highly refined skills required to manipulate the local (and international) media to the extent that Howard does.
This year's carnival theme is the 'Fairy Tale of Balsall Heath', but the intervention of the Council's Transport Department just over a week before the event, has meant that the street procession looks set to turn into a pumpkin. This year's Balsall Heath Carnival street procession has had to be altered at the last minute. Rather than having the annual street procession with floats and children dressed in Carnival costumes walking through the streets, the procession will now have to walk down Balsall Heath's narrow pavements without it's colourful carnival floats.
How to understand the attempted but largely failed terrorist plots uncovered since last Friday? Police officers on June 29 dismantled two car bombs made from gas canisters, gasoline and nails, parked in central London’s major theatre and shopping districts. A day later, two men rammed a Jeep Cherokee, filled with flammable material, into a terminal entrance at Glasgow airport. The series of attempted attacks follows hot on the heels of an attempted al-Qaeda attack in the United States earlier in June.
The chronology requires further probing, and indeed, preliminary analysis raises some unresolved questions.
Firstly the less than efficient al-Quaida wannabe bombers planted two ‘devices’ on the route of the march two days before. This could have led the Police to cancel the procession or a least reroute it through a less glamorous part of town. Then there was the rain that tipped down by the bucket full from beginning to end. Fortunately the LGBT community and their supporters are not so easily put off proving yet again that by comparison heterosexuals just don’t know how to party.
