31-05-2008 19:22It is very strange that activists connected to the anti-xenophobia or refugee rights issues, face regular arrest. Braam Hanekom from PASSOP has been arrested about 4 times in the last few months and has also been the only person targetted each time. It seems that the state has a very low tolerance level for any critique that links xenopobia with capitalist oppression, and that blames the state for the problems refugees find themselves in.

31-05-2008 14:17A threat of industrial action across the NHS intensified yesterday when health workers in the GMB union voted by an overwhelming majority to reject the three-year pay deal offered by the government.
The National Democratic Party of Germany (NPD), led by Udo Voigt, is considered to be a de facto neo-Nazi organization.
The NPD has had a turbulent history marked by a federal government bid to ban it in 2003, while a year later it won 9.2 per cent of the overall vote in the Saxony state election.
31-05-2008 11:51Mohamed Amin Akbar Khan has been in Britain for more than 14 years. He and his British partner have a 17-month-old baby daughter and another baby who was born three days ago, whom he hasn't seen because he has been in locked up in Colnbrook detention centre. After being assaulted at the airport on a previous removal attempt, last week a few days before the birth of his baby, Mohammed has problems breathing, talking, eating or walking. He was taken to the hospital and examined in handcuffs. A police 'investigation' is still underway.
Further, Kenyan authorities have just withdrawn Mohammed's passport, as they are saying his parents were not from there and therefore he is not a Kenyan national.

31-05-2008 01:14I'm pleased to announce the formation of a new prisoner support group called, Ceartais........
The aim of Ceartais is to support former Long Kesh Prisoners and their families.
Our objective is to reveal the truth behind a CR Gas attack on hundreds of Political Prisoners by British Crown Forces on October 15, 1974.
We will also highligh the fact that scores of former prisoners have battled various forms of terminal cancer. Dozens of whom have tragically died.
