The NUJ has argued strongly in its submission to the current review of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act (PACE) that there must be no further erosion of the position of journalists.

Only a few lapses by the self-styled champion of causes

The latest edition of 'Private Eye' carries an extended version of what last week appeared in the local paper for Bethnal Green and Bow. The Advertiser. A very positive appreciation of Mr. Galloway in his House of Commons speech in which he managed to fob off all charges against him that the Committee on Standards in the Commons had made against him. Is 'Private Eye' perhaps related to the East London Advertiser...? Should we not be told? Read more >>

El Salado [The Salted] Massacre - Harold Mantilla

The Bafim5 Troops [Marine Corps Infantry Battalion of Fusiliers No. 5], never arrived because it was legal, material and geographically impossible to do it. BECAUSE.

A) Months prior, by specific order from my Superiors, Bafim5 troops [Marine Corps Infantry Battalion of Fusiliers No. 5], had been relocated to other Municipalities threatened by subversives and self-defenses groups (such as in the populations of Córdoba and Zambrano, in Bolívar).

B) To the jurisdiction of El Salado [The Salted] (and the entire area of the Municipality Del Carmen de Bolívar), the military and territorial competition of the Bafim5 was discontinued, taken out, removed; and the military and territorially competition given, taken charge, commended, to the Bacim31 [Contra-guerrillas Battalion of No. 31].

C) In consequence, the jurisdiction of El Salado [The Salted] and the whole area of the Municipality Del Carmen de Bolívar, were under the protection and territorial competition, of the Contra-guerrillas Battalion of No. 31 (Bacim31), and not of the Bafim5.

The Reputation of The Guardian, R. I. P.

The Guardian and The Observer are in the middle of a remarkable series of articles about Iran and the chances of an American attack on Iran.

This pattern of deception in The Guardian about Iran has become so obvious that it is creating a controversy of its own, with the paper receiving the worst insult in journalism, being compared to the New York Times. Read more >>

GETTING OUT OF "The spin we're in". . . . REMEMBER "CONSPIRACY"?

As last weeks USA Social Forum in NEW YORK votes to support the 911 re-inquiry, a few days after the ex-secret documents from 1973 are released to the public by the cia ( including references to the initial in-house research into "administration of the mind" - that conmens dream - the use of chemicals, electricity, radiation etc to exacerbate the effects of mesmerism -) old easy dismissals of awkward facts as "conspiracy" are obsolete to serious observers.
