I have pledged to support the first campaign by participating in the fast; others may be interested in how they can offer their support.

What really happened in Beirut?

16-06-2008 12:42

The following article appeared on yesterday. It details what recently happened in Lebanon (armed clashes between Opposition and Loyalist forces), with some background and analysis of the deep, and sometimes hidden, reasons behind the conflict. The reason why I'm reposting it here is that most of what we read about the incidents was so distorted, misinformed or simply simplistic. Even a journalist like Robert Fisk sometimes went for the easy line: "this was a proxy war between Iran and the US".

In solidarity with refugees, dead and living

15-06-2008 21:02

A few dozen people braved the chilling cold last Friday, on the eve of Refugee Week, to protest against the government's treatment of refugees and the horrible conditions they are forced to live in, and to remember those who died while seeking asylum here due to self-harm, denial of medical treatment, destitution, hazardous working conditions or racist attacks. Organised by the Birmingham Anti-Racist Campaign (ARC), the annual Refugee Sleep-out in the grounds of St Philip's Cathedral saw the usual candlelight vigil and name-reading to remember those unfortunate victims who took their own life or died as a result of the fucked-up immigration policies. This was followed by speeches, live music and vegan food. A few then slept there over night in solidarity with destitute asylum seekers.
