Craig Murray at the Cambridge Law School occupation

28-01-2009 11:22

On Tuesday 28th night, Craig Murray, the former UK ambassador to Uzbekistan was invited by the assembly of the occupation for a talk. The university authorities prevented him from crossing into the lobby, meaning that he had to give his talk, standing withing the sliding front doors of the faculty. This sends a strong message to those within the university that try to prevent freedom of speech.

The transcript of the talk was made by David P.

Obama: Regime Rotation

27-01-2009 19:15

The arrival of the Obama administration will not fundamentally alter the course of military expansion accelerated during the Bush era. The origins of these policies do not lie uniquely in neoconservative ideology. While the election of President Obama may offer new opportunities for progressive forces to delimit the damage, their space for movement will ultimately be constrained by deep-seated structural pressures that will attempt to exploit Obama to rehabilitate American imperial hegemony, rather than transform it.

Edit BBC and SkyTV to remain impartial on 'being humane'

26-01-2009 17:25

The BBC’s Mike Fudge said “Some viewers think that when there is a major catastrophe, the BBC should help the Aid Agencies in their work to stop civilians suffering and dying – what we might call ‘being humane’.”

“But other viewers disagree, and think that babies with limbs torn off should go through lots and lots of pain, a nasty infection, and death – what we might call ‘being inhumane’ or ‘cruel’. It is not the BBC’s place to judge which of these positions is ‘right’ or ‘wrong’.”

He explained: “It is often difficult for news networks to strike a balance between humanity and cruelty. By telling the Aid Agencies to get lost, we ensure that everyone thinks we’re being fair.”

Eleven days after the 15-year old boy Alexandros Grogopoulos was killed by a police bullet in Athens, I decide to travel to Greece.

Maoist Leadership in Nepal Bans Strikes

25-01-2009 11:33

As a strike wave sweeps the country, the Maoist leadership agrees to banning strikes.

Since the Maoists emerged in the April 2008 Nepal elections as the largest party (though without an absolute majority) to lead the new coalition government, they have failed to heal existing divisions - in their own party, within the parliamentary political system and its ruling class - or within the intermingled social, caste and ethnic tensions across the wider society. In fact, all these divides have widened. And since November a strike wave has spread across the country.

Energy War: NATO meddling in Sudan to block China

25-01-2009 09:32

The US is slowly shifting its military needs towards Africa and Sudan in particular. While the Barack Obama administration will force the UN to declare a no-fly zone over Darfur, the US forces in so called peacekeeping missions will establish their bases in Darfur or Kenya and other surrounding nations in order to keep Sudan under its umbrella.

Clearly, the NATO will be brought in to support the US in its 'conquest' mission and its global strategy of controlling the 'energy' reserves across the African continent.

Gaza – The Blood-Soaked U.S.-Israeli “Ceasefire”

24-01-2009 10:00

The U.S.-Israeli “ceasefire” is an effort to continue to pursue these criminal aims. For one, there are reports that many Israeli troops will not immediately leave Gaza. Israeli military forces continue to surround Gaza, and Israel and Egypt continue to imprison the people of Gaza and control all access in an out. So the starvation of Gaza will probably intensify as a result of this “ceasefire.”
