Harassment - The New Redwatch

03-06-2008 11:55

Many victims are extremely vulnerable and are being ignored by the police. Cases of serious harassment are being passed off as 'a bit of local trouble', when in fact these attacks are centrally controlled and highly organised.

Governance and the Institution of the Common - Seminar. 5 June, London

03-06-2008 08:46

The Art of Rent is a cycle of 4 meetings that started in January at Queen Mary University of London. This series of public seminars was open to everyone: our experiment with the academic structures to build a sort of open university. Open to London, to everybody who live here or pass through this metropolis. We tried to take the word "metroversity" literally and experiment a metropolitan space inside the university's space itself.

Iraqi Federation of Oil Unions leader Hassan Jumaa Awad has sent the following urgent email to supporters.

The IFOU are on the forefront of resistance to this and the non-armed resistance to the occupation. Please email the Iraqi embassy in the UK in protest....

As Predicted: Israel Delays Vote on Gaza Cease-Fire

02-06-2008 18:35

This delay has nothing to do with the "...the "vagueness" of Hamas' position", and everything to do with the fact that Olmert is fighting for his political life, in view of the corruption scandal which has emerged around him recently, and the Extremists demanding his head - because he 'dared' to speak to Palestinians (even though the process was designed to fail) - reject any peace or coexistence with the Palestinians.

Even though he is going to Washington this week, he may well be on his way to be a proverbial lame duck, in light of potential new elections in Israel.

Israel also knows that - as its own defence staff warned - its illegal Collective Punishment provoked the rockets it used to 'justify' military strikes on Gaza which were planned for over a year, and if these criminal policies are ended, so will the rockets, and this will prove Israel was lying all along, aided by a willing media.
