4.30am police raid that shook a father’s faith in land of free

19-03-2010 17:42

Badi Tebani
THEY came for his son in the dead of night. Masked men dressed in black, pushing, shoving, barking orders.

Badi Tebani was sleeping in his bed with his wife at about 4.30am when his door was smashed in and 20 men piled into his home in Finsbury Park.

Speaking to the Tribune yesterday (Thursday), he said: “I heard lots of voices – and the voice of my son. Cries for help. Shouting. I thought it was burglars come to steal from my house. But it was the police.”

Already during the Clinton Administration of 1993-2001, a triangular military alliance between the US, Israel and Turkey had unfolded. This ‘triple alliance’ is coupled with a strong bilateral military relationship between Tel Aviv and Ankara.

Amply documented, Israel and Turkey are partners in the planned US aerial attacks on Iran, which have been in an advanced state of readiness since mid-2005.

Take Action – Save The Black Cat Community Social Centre

19-03-2010 13:50

For 5 months the Black Cat Community Centre has been providing a free, inclusive space for community events. It has hosted open mic nights, poetry sessions, yoga and dance classes, debt advice centres, meetings and many more events based upon demand and all free of charge – all have been keenly taken up by the people of Bath. This project is run by full-time volunteers using abandoned buildings otherwise going to waste. The council, in its infinite wisdom, has decided that this kind of blatant altruism and community solidarity must come to an end before the people start expecting the council to provide a decent service, and as such are sending bailiffs in to evict us so that the Riverside Studios may once again stand empty gathering dust.

Failure to protect bluefin tuna has huge consequences

19-03-2010 10:24

Bluefin Tuna at Tsujiki fish market, Tokyo. Photo:
It is a huge disappointment. The United Nations wildlife conference in Qatar this week, where delegates from 175 countries gathered to make decisions on the protection of recently endangered species, has pulled grey clouds over the world of conservation. The CITES meeting failed to add the threatened Atlantic bluefin tuna to the Appendix I listing of the CITES legislation, which would have resulted in a ban on the international trade of the fish.

Iran’s natural gas riches: US knife to the heart of world future energy

18-03-2010 23:35

A major realignment in the world’s energy economy – one where there will be a continuing diminished role for the US – Washington’s blustering rhetoric about democracy and peace and war on terror or alleged Iranian nuclear weapons can be seen as a desperate attempt to conceal its fear that it stands to be a big loser.

Encircling Iran with wars and threatening gas supplies to possibly the world’s top future gas customer – China – is the real deal. US actions are more accurately seen as putting a knife to the energy arteries of a world economy that it will no longer be able to dominate.
