Kong Yee Sai Mau (No to WTO): The Battle of Hong Kong

19-12-2005 22:15

Sat Dec 17, Hong Kong—It’s 1:30 am in Hong Kong. We have just returned to the house after being in the Hong Kong streets all afternoon and evening in the most intense street battle that we have ever seen. We are taking turns showering the teargas and pepper spray off as we write this up. Farmers, workers, women’s organizations, fisher folk, Hong Kong youth, migrants and other movement people from Korea, across Asia and around the world marched on, broke through several police lines to less than a block from the site of the WTO conference center and laid siege to it until we were dispersed with teargas and mass arrests tonight.

AMMAD HAQUE POLITICAL POETRY on the seasonal shows of 'piety' and 'compassion

19-12-2005 10:22

On the day when the mainstream UK news outlets are running the alleged story about alleged class division between John Prescott and his boss Tony Blair - and on the alleged rift between Gordon Brown and Tony Blair over the British EU rebate...
in contrast with the absence from the main news media in the UK of anything like decent reporting on how BOTH Prescott and Brown are as much responsible as Blair for continuing with the policy of impoverishment of huge parts of the world’s populations...

It’s Good News Week

18-12-2005 18:05

Bush has declared that it’s acceptable to illegally bug US citizens for a ‘good cause’; Cheney opposed legislation banning the use of torture by US agencies! Rumsfeld denounces claims that Iraq invasion is related to Oil appropriation; US Congress attacks Bush or rather those responsible for the debacle that is the Bush Presidency. But the news of the week is the residents of Sydney contracting the disease that is John Winston Howard (cowardice).

Both arguably failed to show moral leadership
Many Australians feel Howard is ignoring the problem. Others say his narrow response shows how well he has read Australia's mood. But by not condemning the racism, Howard and Labor leader Kim Beazley have both arguably failed to show moral leadership.

An Incredible Day in America, Indeed—But, Will We Seize the Day, Or Let It Pass?

18-12-2005 00:40

In a fine Huffington Post article published yesterday, Martin Garbus, a leading American trial lawyer, unequivocally states that Bush has committed an impeachable crime in authorizing domestic surveillance without a court-issued warrant, and has, in conjunction with Congress, legitimized torture for the first time in US history. Yet [continues below ...]

A Burundian asks: Can we still trust the UN?

MUHAMMAD HAQUE POLITICAL POETRY on yet another Blairite cull

16-12-2005 11:11

Channel 4 news 'anchorman' (an Amercanisation/US-isation) of Jon Snow that is embarrassingly inaccurate and overestimates Snow's record of 'toughness' and 'independence') allegedly interviewed one of Tony Blair's ritualistic cullers on Thursday 15 December 2005. The interview was an insult to all those who keep switching on ‘Channel Four’ to find on that outlet some really overdue investigative reporting that is not available on the BBC

Victory against New Labour: Edinburgh says NO to privatisation of Council Housing Stock Transfer

16-12-2005 00:40

logo of Britain-wide Defend Council Housing Campaign

Grassroots tenants groups have celebrated today the "no" vote against transfering Council Houses in Edinburgh to a newly founded Housing Association.
The City of Edinburgh Council publicised the outcome of the ballot.
53% of eligable tenants voted "No" in the ballot which had a turnout of about 60%.
The grassroot groups took on a battle against an estimated £21 million PR campaign funded by the Scottish executive - and won!
The ballot was brought forward from Spring 2006 to November 2005 to avoid unpleasant findings by Audit Scotland, which researches the effects of council housing stock transfer at the moment, and then furthermore brought the vote forward another six days to make a possible legal challenge by the Scottish Tenants Organisation impossible.
