02-10-2007 14:35The only thing to say about the title is we’re glad it won’t be easy to find if you’re googling for information on Burma. The actual details of the uprising are clearly unimportant to the authors or it might get more than half a scanty paragraph before USuk is invoked and the true purpose of the article is revealed.
02-10-2007 14:34The first ever Working Class Bookfair is building momentum, as it gets closer to Saturday November 3rd. The latest development involves the Market Tavern public house, in Durhams' Market Place, which was the founding place of the important Durham Miners Association in the 19th century.
02-10-2007 13:52Craig Murray's web site is still not back online after a lengthly downtime caused by Fasthosts disconnecting the server it was hosted on at the behest of Shillings who are acting on behalf of Alisher Usmanov. The latest twist in this story is that a further delay in the return of his site has been caused by the server it was due to go live on being attacked:
"Murray found a new home for his website, when our main man Rich stepped into the breach, offering to host the site on his server, in defiance of oligarchical bluster. This new Murray site was due to launch on Monday, October 1; but lo and behold, Rich's server was hit by the hacker firebomb on Sunday, September 30 – just hours before the Murray site was to go live."
02-10-2007 13:10The news media in times of crisis and war reproduce and do not question the consciousness and attitudes of the elites. Wars are seen as exceptional situations by the media in which patriotism outweighs the journalistic self-image of critically distanced reporting.
02-10-2007 11:48The UK Animal Rights Gathering 2007 was taking place at a sanctuary in Kent last weekend. Over 200 people attended for workshops and discussions on various issues relating to animal rights, and to scoff Veggie's food.

02-10-2007 11:28The Army is threatening to go ahead with a new court of martial of 1st Lt. Ehren Watada on Oct.
9th. This is in gross violation of law and the Constitution, because his lawyers have appealed
against a second trial on the basis of double jeopardy.
Protestors have managed to close the Faslane naval base in Scotland by surprising the police with a combination of superglue and paint.

02-10-2007 08:35The long-awaited “progress report” of Gen. David Petraeus and Ambassador Ryan Crocker on the status of the occupation of Iraq has been made, providing Americans, via the compliant media, with the spectacle of loyal Bush yes men offering faith-based analysis in lieu of fact-based assessment. In the days and weeks that have since passed, two things have become clear: Neither Congress nor the American people (including the antiwar movement) have a plan or the gumption to confront President Bush in anything more than cosmetic fashion over the war in Iraq, and while those charged with oversight mill about looking to score cheap political points and/or save face, the administration continues its march toward conflict with Iran unimpeded.
