"From Guy Fawkes to 911" UK tour - 400 Years of State Sponsored Terror

22-10-2007 15:45

U.S. 'Terrorologist' author Webster Tarpley tours Britain starting this tour in London on Guy Fawkes night. History is full of examples of elements within the state using fake 'terrorism' to drive the political classes and people into the hands of despots and as an excuse for the loss of civil liberties. Since 9/11, evidence has come to light that contradicts that day's infamous terrorist attacks. American historian Webster Tarpley argues that this is nothing new, serious inconsistencies have been associated with terror attacks for hundreds of years throughout the Western world.

22-10-2007 12:54

Meltem, the 14-year old girl that wrote a letter from yarlswood 2 weeks ago has just been refused bail again. She and her mother have now been in detention for 2 months and allthough they had two sureties and are currently waiting for the outcome of their judicial review their bail application got refused again.
Cennet doesn't speak much English so 14-year old Meltem has to handle everything herself- speaking to the guards in Yarlswood, their solicitor etc.. If she stays in detention for much longer she might not be able to do her GCSEs next year.

Dalai Lama pawn in Bush's oil wars?

21-10-2007 22:33

We've already had to warn the heroic Buddhist dissidents of Burma and colonized Uighur people of China's far west against allowing themselves to be exploited as propaganda fodder by the Bush White House. Now it seems we have to warn the Dalai Lama—whose official website boasts the text of his Oct. 17 Capitol Hill acceptance speech upon being awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.

Israel Shaken By Report on IDF Brutality

21-10-2007 16:58

When you dehumanize a group of people in order to consider them the enemy and take away everything they have (including their lives), it gives you ever more license to treat these people with monstrous, unthinking brutality.

The Israeli people really shouldn't be quite so shocked: they are simply reaping what they have sown, now manifesting as the behavior of the IDF, from the very inception of the Israeli state.

No choice for the oppressed of Myanmar/Burma

21-10-2007 15:53

The anti-junta uprising in Myanmar/Burma, and its violent suppression by the military force, has placed the concerns of this county on the international stage. In New Zealand, political oganisations ranging from the National Party through to the Greens and ‘far-left’ Socialist Worker have issued statements of uncritical support for the pro-democracy movement. The military regime is clearly despised by a vast majority of the population in Myanmar/Burma. However, leftists who want to support the people of Myanmar/Burma should cast a critical eye on those leading the ‘pro-democracy’ movement there. By examining the policies of the Aung San Suu Kyi led National League for Democracy (NLD), the less than positive implications of an NLD-led government coming to power can be deduced.

HRW: Israel Arbitrarily Blocking Medical Evacuations From Gaza

21-10-2007 15:33

Ethnic cleansing, one sick Gazan at a time.

The Israeli government must feel so proud of itself for not having the any member of the IDF pull the trigger on these people: just let their treatable diseases take their course.

One also has to praise the actions of the Tel-Aviv based Physicians for Human Rights - Israel for their wonderful humanitarian work in this area.
