UK activist faces 12 year sentence after RNC protests

09-09-2008 20:55

Front of flier
Dave Mahoney was cycling to the grocery store with his girlfriend in Minneapolis on September 4th 2008, when an un-marked van pulled up, and two men wearing FBI shirts inexplicably bundled him into the back, and drove off.

Dave was part of the protesters assembled at the Republican National Convention in the City that week, and was there to peacefully remind America and the rest of the world of some of the atrocities, and in-justices millions of people endure everyday across the globe - many of which link directly to the actions & policy of the Republican party.

Instead, Dave's become one of the victims... facing trumped up charges of Assault, and Conspiracy to Riot with a Furtherance of Terrorism; if convicted he could get up to 12 years in jail AND a $24,000 dollar fine...

US Election Campaign: National Security and Permanent Wars. Vying to Be Toughest

09-09-2008 13:47

Ignoring public sentiment, both party nominees stress "national security" and face off on who's toughest on "terrorism." For 2009, expect more of the same. A continued right wing agenda. Bigger budgets for militarism. Police state repression for enforcement. Little attention to public needs. No end to wars and occupation. Possible new ones against Iran, Pakistan, elsewhere in Eurasia, and a resurgent confrontation with Russia.

London fare rises are a con - Mayor leaves Londoners paying for £16bn Crossrail

09-09-2008 12:04

The recent London fare rises are just the beginning of how the City will fleece ordinary Londoners to pay for a rail line that reduces congestion for fat City bankers in the City of London and Canary Wharf. The City of London Corporation, the medieval unelected body of the City wants Crossrail but wants ordinary taxpayers to pay for Crossrail. Who is behind this? None other than the dodgy British Energy Adrian Montague who is good at leaving taxpayers paying for incompetent companies for instance, he negotiated leaving taxpayers paying for the decomissioning of nucelar waste (current cost £70bn and rising) and he is behind the Government wanting more nuclear power

09-09-2008 10:05

Frank Grevil - imprisoned Danish whistleblower
Frank Søholm Grevil (born in 1960) had the rank of major in Forsvarets Efterretningstjeneste [FE] (Danish military intelligence agency). On February 22, 2004 he acted as a whistle blower leaking classified information about the FE's assessment of the possibility of weapons of mass destruction [WMD] in Iraq. These documents proved that Danish prime minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen lied to the Danish parliament when he claimed that there was evidence that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.

Frank Grevil was sentenced to four months in jail for leaking these documents.
