On the morning of Friday February 13th Delshad Namiq Zorab was taken from his home in Doncaster to a police station and then to Campsfield IRC. Many of you will have met Delshad: he has been an active campaigner for the right to asylum. Now, locked in Campsfield IRC, he fears that he will be forcibly deported to Iraqi Kurdistan where he has every reason to believe that his life would be in real danger. This is despite the fact that his appeal for asylum is still pending: Delshad should not - even under this Government's asylum laws - be detained or deported.

Barack Obama Administration Continues US Military Global Dominance

20-02-2009 10:12

The Barack Obama administration is continuing the neo-conservative agenda of US military domination of the world— albeit with perhaps a kinder-gentler face. While overt torture is now forbidden for the CIA and Pentagon, and symbolic gestures like the closing of the Guantanamo prison are in evidence, a unilateral military dominance policy, expanding military budget, and wars of occupation and aggression will likely continue unabated.

Free Gaza Mural Cleansed by West Midlands Police

20-02-2009 00:16

The Free Gaza Mural before it was cleansed by West Midlands Police
One of many 'Free Gaza' murals painted by Brummie artist Mohammed Ali (aka AerosolArabic) and his crew has been scrubbed off a resident's wall in Alum Rock by Birmingham City Council. It transpires that this was at the behest of West Midlands Police who had been leaning on the home owners for some time claiming their home could be petrol-bombed if it stayed up!
