27-07-2006 08:16"Threat to burn Monica Ali book at meeting" reads the sub-heading in today's Guardian newspaper [page 14] allegedly reporting on an alleged campaign meeting. This is a serious item of 'news'. What is the context? Why is the Guardian able to 'find' such 'threats'? Is the Guardian being genuine in its reporting or is there perhaps an agenda to further distort the image of the community and make it look even more deserving of deprivation and misrepresentation?

The UK House of Commons Crossrail Bill Select Committee has just published a set of ‘decisions’ that confirm what Khoodeelaar! The campaign against CrossRail hole attacks on the East End of London had said from the start.
"i,” the powerful and occasionally frustrating new film by independent directors Raphael Lyon and Andres Ingoglia, tells of one such democratic moment, the Argentinean economic collapse of 2001 and the social uprisings that accompanied it. Along the way it also functions as one of the first, if not the very first, feature length films about the Independent Media Center (IMC, or Indymedia) movement, which chronicled the Argentine struggle as it unfolded.
