So why is it that the BNP seems to be seen as an acceptable vote?

01-06-2009 07:56

Any news on G8 Italy?

31-05-2009 13:27

I was wondering if some one could provide some details about the July G8 Summit and subsequent protests in Aquila, Italy? Since it has been moved to mainland Italy there is now a renewed opportunity to organize in large numbers but up until this point, at least here in the UK, I havent been able to locate any good information about the protests.All I know at this point is that it will take place from around the 8-11 July and that the Schengen rules governing free travel have already been suspended. Any news around the Summit/Protests would be much appreciated.

LCAP picket Duncan Lewis Solicitors in London

31-05-2009 12:09

The London Coalition Against Poverty (LCAP) held another picket yesterday against Duncan Lewis Solicitors. Duncan Lewis & Co. make millions from taking legal aid cases from people on low income and with precarious immigration status, but they often let people down by not being responsible and treating their clients with negligence and disrespect.

The protest saw ex clients giving testimonies of their horrible treatment at the hands of the discredited solicitors and protesters passing 'guilty' verdicts after each story. Below are some pictures of the protest.

So who are the terrorists here?

31-05-2009 00:21

The FBI has labeled the freedom fighters of the ALF, who are engaged in extensional self-defense of nonhuman animals—sentient beings whom are being holocausted at the rate of billions per year— the “number one domestic terrorist threat.” So who are the terrorists here? Animal-defending members of the ALF or ruthless animal-slaughtering corporations and their government protectors?

UN report on US executions

31-05-2009 00:20

A report this week for the UN on US domestic and overseas executions calls for a national “commission of inquiry” to investigate cases. It estimates the total number of uninvestigated Private Contractor murders in Iraq "to be in the hundreds, perhaps thousands", while obliquely criticising Obamas deceptive aim of “moving forward”. It also points out no one senior in rank to Major has been prosecuted.
