Why Not Crippling Sanctions for Israel and the US?

02-09-2009 20:32

Iran is developing nuclear energy, which is its right as a signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty. Iran’s nuclear energy program is subject to inspections by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which consistently reports that its inspections find no diversion of enriched uranium to a weapons program.

The position taken by Israel, and by Israel’s puppet in Washington, is that Iran must not be allowed to have the rights as a signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty that every other signatory has, because Iran might divert enriched uranium to a weapons program.

In other words, Israel and the US defy international law by claiming the right to abrogate Iran’s right to develop nuclear energy.

Tom Williams explains the food on show was chucked by Tesco to the public
Today (2nd September) a group of activists and skippers held a protest against the wasting of food by supermarkets by delivering hampers of binned food to the DEFRA and the Dept. for Business, Innovation and Skills.

Assembling at 11:30am at Westminster Tesco, the group began by staging protests with skipped food, banners and leaflets outside the store. At 1:30pm they arrived at the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills to present a bountiful hamper of binned edible food and an open letter to a representative of Peter Mandelson, calling for a supermarket ombudsman to be established. They proceeded to DEFRA and delivered another hamper bursting with skipped food for Hilliary Benn, along with another open letter calling for various measures to curb supermarket food waste.

Pacifism does nothing to help animals.

02-09-2009 11:04

The following is my opinion and it in no way incites people to take responsibility for their own actions and act concisely and effectively.

This article I feel could be applied to any radical movement and is in no way limited to animal liberation.

Please let me know your thoughts via comments?
