23-09-2008 22:38

The decision to deport Annonciate to Burundi is a grave mistake and the United Kingdom, by refusing to grant her political asylum, would be stained by a shameful verdict that would be hard to erase.

SHAC Financial Demos in London

23-09-2008 21:25

This week's demos had been planned for Thursday for a week or so, but we would never have thought that by the time came round it was to be right in the middle of the biggest global financial crash in living memory. Banks and financial institutions were in turmoil, with companies like Merrill Lynch and Goldman Sachs in the headlines having been struggling against going broke. It turned into a fantasic opportunity for us to really put pressure on the massive faceless financial institutions at a critical time for them. We had NYSE shareholders in our sights. We had a very good turnout this week, with over 20 protesters - exceptional for a Thursday afternoon.

Aldermaston Big Blockade – Monday, October 27 2008

23-09-2008 13:35

Faslane Big Blockade, Oct 07 (C. Gwyntopher)
Help disrupt illegal work on WMD at Britain’s nuclear bomb factory

In 2006/7, Faslane 365 saw well over 1000 arrests during a year-long blockade of the Trident submarine base in Scotland. Last Easter, Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) Aldermaston saw its biggest demonstration in two decades as 5000 people surrounded the base to mark the 50th anniversary of the first London to Aldermaston march. Trident Ploughshares now invite you to a major blockade of the Berkshire nuke factory, where billions of pounds are currently being spent developing new warhead facilities that will scupper nuclear disarmament for another 50 years. Help us uphold international law by blockading this factory of death in what promises to be a colourful celebration of life and people power. There is a role for everyone, arrestable or non-arrestable, young or old. This event is supported by CND.

Propaganda Is a Two-Way Street

23-09-2008 07:48

In the ceaseless and invariably bellicose calls for war (both open and clandestine) against Iran, perhaps one argument invoked by pro-war pundits and politicians stands out and takes pride of place above all others: Iran, it is claimed, "poses an existential threat to the state of Israel." It's certainly been a favorite of Republican presidential nominee, John McCain. Furthermore, Sarah Palin, McCain's running mate, when asked about America's response in the event of a unilateral Israeli military strike against Iran, repeated an astounding three times the AIPAC-by-rote reply: "I don't think that we should second-guess the measures that Israel has to take to defend themselves and for their security."
