U.S-Instigated War Brings Mass Death to Somalia

01-12-2007 23:37

The United States remains, as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, "the greatest purveyor of violence in the world," through its own wars of aggression and by fomenting and manipulating conflicts that kill millions. It is also the most cynical power on the planet, crying crocodile tears over the carnage in Darfur (in which the U.S. is complicit) while simultaneously unleashing wholesale death in Somalia. Half a million Africans face starvation and disease as a direct result of U.S. instigation of the Ethiopian invasion of Somalia - an extension of Bush's "war on terror" and the underlying quest for Africa's wealth. United Nations officials now describe Somalia as the worst humanitarian crisis on the continent - more dire than Darfur.

The Social Justice-AntiWar Movement throughout Europe and N. America could learn a lot from the real revolutionaries throughout S. America, who, after decades of foreign exploitation, have not only rejected 'Globalisation' and proven this is possible, but taken the power away from the same people corrupting the countries responsible for S. America's sad past.

reminder - public meeting: freedom to protest! LSE, TOMORROW Sunday 2nd Dec

01-12-2007 20:13

Gordon Brown plans to extend the restrictions on demonstrations near parliament to cover the whole country, claiming that this will simplify the work of the police. The current law totally bans spontaneous protests, requiring advance police permission, which allows the police to impose arbitrary limits on numbers and effectively act as political censors. The consultation proposes extending these rules to any protest anywhere, in the name of 'harmonisation', and adding powers to control the content of banners, placards and leaflets. The freedom to protest was won through hard struggle and if we want to keep it we must take a stand to say enough is enough. Come to a public meeting to plan a response: we propose early January.

New Zealand: Charges dropped after “anti-terror” police raids

01-12-2007 17:20

New Zealand Solicitor-General, David Collins QC, announced on November 8 that terrorism charges would not proceed against 12 of the 17 people detained in a massive “anti-terror” police operation three weeks earlier. Far from backing down, however, the Labour government has indicated its determination to exploit the lurid but untested claims surrounding the incident to justify even more draconian counter-terrorism laws.
