Protest The Pope Is Right To Say Benedict Was A Willing Nazi

05-09-2010 00:57

Berger, now 81, was ordained a Catholic priest alongside Joseph Ratzinger and his brother, Georg, in 1951.

When I interviewed Berger in April 2005, just after Ratzinger had been elevated to the papacy, he spoke well of Ratzinger's intellect and discipline as a young man. But he said he couldn't understand why Ratzinger had insisted for so long in so many public statements that no one had a choice but to join Hitler Youth.

UG#515 - War on Iran, Again? (And is Wikileaks a "modified limited hangout"?)

04-09-2010 03:34

As the corporate media starts to spew forth anti-Iran propaganda, the alternative media are full of reports about the coming attack on Iran. This week in our first hour Webster Tarpley discusses why he expects war with Iran, and why he thinks Wikileaks is not what it appears to be. In our second hour, Stephen Kinzer gives a history of the first coup d'état ever organised by the CIA. "Operation Ajax", motivated by the desire to regain control of the nation's huge oil revenues, ousted Iran's elected prime minister, Mohammad Mosaddegh, plunging the country into 25 years of US-backed bloody dictatorship.

The British military in Iraq : A legacy of war crimes and atrocities

03-09-2010 20:24

Tony "I would do it again" Blair, announced, on 16th August, he is to give his entire £4.6 million advance on his book: "My Journey", to the Royal British Legion, for support of British soldiers in need. As the ungracious calls for his "journey" to be to The Hague get louder - with some suggesting a far less civilized ordeal - it seems timely to assess British "achievements" in Iraq.

"More than half the population either dead, wounded, traumatized, in prison, internally displaced, or in foreign exile ... The air, soil, water, blood and genes drenched with depleted uranium ... the most awful birth defects ... unexploded cluster bombs lie in wait for children to pick them up ... a river of blood runs alongside the Euphrates and Tigris ... through a country that may never be put back together again."

The 1970s And The Winter Of Discontent

03-09-2010 18:22

Myths, reality, and lessons for today.
7.30pm Wednesday 8th September
@ Easton Community Centre, Kilburn Rd

Speaker: Gwyneth Powell-Davies
For many who grew up in the 1980s, two great myths of the 1970s stand out. Firstly, that the strikers at the decade's end had no good reason to strike - it was simply gratuitous and pointless sabotage of the common good.

And, secondly, that this particular episode of industrial action involved workers and union leaders 'holding the country to ransom' in what is seen as a high-point of Union strength and power.

In fact, the 1970s can be seen in a very different way, one which points not to some inevitable and justified victory of the Thacherite free-market dogma and the futility of workers' struggle, but to real moments of hope for a better world, and sharp lessons about a strategy for both successful rank-and-file militancy and for beating back the fascist menace.

As we move into another once-in-a-generation period of battle over who pays for the economic crisis, it is well worth clarifying our arguments about the 70s.

Come along and join in the discussion.

Reinstate our right to march past the Tory Conference

03-09-2010 11:20

On Tuesday 24th August a delegation from the Right To Work campaign met with West
Midlands police and a representative of Birmingham City Council to discuss the route
of the protest march outside the Tory party conference on Sunday 3rd October.
West Midlands police stated that they were happy for RtW to march past the
conference centre and confirmed that centenary square, the square directly in front
of the conference centre, would not be a “sterile zone”. A route was suggested by
Birmingham City Council and West Midlands police and the delegation accepted the
offer to walk the route being proposed.

The Police have now reneged on the proposed route citing security reasons. They are
denying us the right to march past the conference centre.
