17-04-2011 11:55

Tata Noah chief of Indigenous communities

seeing the peaks
My grandfather walked with a very long stick adorned with many allegories. Tata Noah told me long ago that it represented our true nation, which was all unknown, because many of those living in the village had given in to the viciousness of the white people and did not follow the customs of our fathers. That hurt my Tata, so when I arrived, he ever and ever told me many things and stories of our nation...

Campaign to save Hayward House daycare strengthens

16-04-2011 23:23

The campaign to save daycare at Hayward House is gathering force, as patients, volunteers, relatives and wellwishers are making contact and organising to work together.


Freedom of information requests have been made to find out more about the present/past, and about future plans.  A website will be active shortly, and a paper petition is circulating.  A web-based petition is intended.  A meeting is planned for May.

Hayward House daycare is unique in the area, in that, alongside personal, social and emotional care, it also provides superb medical palliative care from a highly skilled team of doctors and nurses.  Many patients have described how their pain had been unbearable, and was not treated effectively in an oncology ward, yet the doctors at Hayward House were able to do enough to bring quality of life back to their last months or weeks.  Patients are naturally very upset and angry at the proposed closure, and this is doing their health no good.

Please print out and distribute and sign the petition, and contact me if you'd like to be involved in the campaign.

16-04-2011 08:24

This week we hear author Sasha Abramsky and professors Viviane Saleh-Hanna and Michelle Alexander on the US incarceration industry, or as they call it, the "Prison Industrial Complex". How can a country which used to style itself the "land of the free" lock up far more of its own population than any other country? Why has the US prison population exploded? And what is the connection with racial segregation and Jim Crow?
