Iran and the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) conference

03-05-2010 20:43

President Ahmadinejad speaking at the Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference
This year's Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference - as with previous years' - promises to be yet another battle between the developing and the nuclear-armed nations. The US insists that the Non-Proliferation Treaty needs to be rewritten so as to place greater limits on what it calls "nuclear weapons proliferation" whilst the developing nations say that the concern over proliferation is being used as a pretext by the US to avoid its own obligations under the same treaty to disarm its own nukes and to share nuclear technology with everyone else.

South Africa:

03-05-2010 11:50

The sight of people, mostly women or children, walking kilometres over dusty roads to haul wood back to their homes for cooking, heat and light is not uncommon in South Africa’s rural areas. Likewise, every winter, fires rampage through the thousands of shanty towns that dot the urban landscape because people are forced to use dangerous sources of energy like coal and paraffin.

May Day in Coventry

03-05-2010 10:19

Yesterday was the first May Day celebration in Coventry for many years, organised by Coventry Against Racism. The organisers had planned to kick off the event with a march, followed by a "Festival" in Millenium Place. The police demanded a payment of £900 to close the street: and when organisers couldn't cough up, the march was banned.

All the same, some of the assembled May Day celebrators forgot about the ban and spontaneously took to the streets, reclaiming the road and holding a colourful procession from the Council House to Millenium place. Maybe just an act of token resistance -- but was great to see Coventry town centre give way to anarchic festivity on May Day, even if just for a brief pause. The parade was led by the banners of West Midlands No Borders: "asylum is not a crime"; "freedom of movement for all"; "no one is illegal"; and "working is not a crime".
