19-09-2009 16:02

The Times, 18 September 2009
After 4 years of constant scare-mongering by the world’s leading nuclear powers over “Iran’s nuclear threat”, US President Obama reverts to Clinton administration’s “Iran’s ballistic threat” propaganda of the late 1990s.

In early October, these nuclear powers will hold the “much-anticipated” talks with Iran in Turkey; the neighbouring country that hosts the largest US nuclear arsenal outside the USA.

Belgrade pride cancelled after pressure cops and fascists

19-09-2009 14:31

This morning it became apparent that the Belgrade gay pride was cancelled due to pressure by police and fascists. It was supposed to be the second pride since the 2001 blood bath. The pride in 2001 got brutally attacked by fascists. Since then Serbian queer activists have been building alliances with fellow queer activists across borders as well as with local antifa groups. They felt confident enough to stage this second pride now 8 years later. This is the press release they just send out.

You protect animals, please protect young girls too!

18-09-2009 21:26

Its time for London Fashon Week again, Its time to glorify heroin chic and the anorectic waif. Its time for young girls, perhaps your sister?, to be bombarded with this perversion of desireable images. Its time fot them to be to;ld they are not right, not beautiful, not worthy.

If the weeks runway events and coverage are insuffucient, there are year round websites devoted to this perversion. Just like there are websites devoted to the practice of some predatory males to prey on young boys.

Confronted with the immorality, the FASHONITA ELITE refuse to back down. Deadly thin will be on the catwalk yet again this year!

Young impressionable ladies ( over a million of them in Britain are already INFECTED with this socially promoted illness)) can follow on facebook and probably twitter feeds.
As the article below notes, these young children can gain "inspiration from celebrities like Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton" and learn how to be part of this glamorous yet deadly lifestyle.

I'm not there. I just think some Brits should read this article and think about it and hopefully go DO Something to bring the light and some shame to this perverse event, the LONDON "FASHON" WEEK.
