Palestine Today 04 09 2011

09-04-2011 17:20

Well Hamas are certainly asking for it.
Saturday, April 9, Hamas and its allies, acting now on Hizballah guidelines from Lebanon, fired 24 heavy Grad missiles and more than 50 mortars shells at seven southern Israeli towns in an expanding radius up to Palmahim in the north. Despite bomb shelters and home guard measures, 20 Israelis were injured or suffered shock. After 17 Hamas and other commanders were targeted in 48 hours of Israel counter-attacks, Hamas requested a ceasefire through the UN. It came from the Islamist organization's political echelons. Israel replied the request would only be addressed only if it came from Hamas military leaders, who rather than abating their rocket offensive on the Israeli population are intensifying it.

UG#542 - Sanders Speaks Out (Exposing The Fed's Financial Endgames)

09-04-2011 17:05

The show this week is devoted to a single speaker, Bernie Sanders, independent US Senator for Vermont, whose 8½ hour speech he last December protested the "Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010". We hear extracts of his speech, on the multi-trillion dollars bailouts which he forced the Fed to disclose, the increasing size of already 'too-big-to-fail' banks, increasing inequality in US society and global trade.

Libya: Distractions and diversions

09-04-2011 15:31

Daily Mirror, 22 March 2011
One thing should surely be clear and that is the pivotal role played by the corporate/state media in selling the Libyan 'no-fly zone' and the subsequent invasion by the Empire, albeit by first 'softening up the enemy' and then as illegal arms supplier. Thus the 'rebels', about whom absolutely nothing is known, become the West's 'democratic' torch-bearers and all pretence at it being some kind of 'humanitarian intervention', is dropped.

So intertwined are the state and the mainstream media that it's now impossible to see any kind of separation between the two. What's so incredible about the power of the media to transform reality for us is best illustrated by the fact that the political elite knew what the 'no-fly zone' really meant, that it was an act of war, the media just omitted this particular detail from its coverage, or rather it relegated it to a footnote, just as it did with the way it presented the illegal invasion of Iraq to the public. Crimes become 'omissions' and 'errors' and finally 'historical' footnotes.

George Monbiot : State infiltrator

09-04-2011 14:00

Monbiot is the public-school son of two active ultra-right wing Tory extremists, and he has done his Nazi parents proud. He has subverted the environmental movement in the UK more than any other state infiltrator. He is the personification of green-washing, and anyone who still admires this obvious shit should be excluded from any genuinely progressive movement. Let's stick to facts.

You legitimise child detention, we disrupt you.

08-04-2011 19:22

On 9 March, Barnardo's announced that it had agreed with the UKBA to provide staff and children's activities for the proposed new immigration prison for up to nine families at Pease Pottage, Crawley Forest.

A group of activists from groups including London No Borders, All African Women's Group, and SOAS detainee support swarmed in to the Museum of childhood during Barnardo's fundraising initiatives panel this afternoon to ask, 'How charitable is it to collude with the UKBA in locking up children?' and 'Why fund that of all things during the crisis?'. Despite some protestations from the crowd, many looked thoughtful and kept quiet during the proceedings. After some leafleting and general interruption the group moved to the front of the museum where banners were laid out and discussions with passers-by took place- all in all a successful stunt.

The campaign against Barnardo's agreeing to this contract must continue, to keep up to date with the campaign visit
