Funding taken away for opposing EDL?

24-03-2010 18:35

Nottingham City Council have decided to end funding for the Council for Equality and Human Rights Nottingham and Nottinghamshire (CEHRNN).

When Facts and Propaganda Collide - The BBC and Israel

23-03-2010 15:19

When a Thai kibbutz worker was killed in Israel by a rocket launched from Gaza last week, BBC News online gave the incident headline coverage flagged up on its home page. (BBC news online, ‘Rocket fire from Gaza kills man in southern Israel’, 23:42 GMT, Thursday, 18 March 2010)

By contrast, the killing of two Palestinian teenagers, Mohammad Qadus and Osaid Qadus, by Israeli soldiers on Saturday was buried at the end of a short news report on UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon's Middle East visit. Even worse, the BBC’s footnote simply echoed Israeli propaganda that “no live bullets were fired, only tear gas and rubber bullets”, despite ample evidence to the contrary. (BBC news online, ‘UN chief says Gaza suffering under Israeli blockade’, 11:26 GMT, Sunday, 21 March 2010)

The US-NATO Conquest of Africa: Militarization of the African Continent

21-03-2010 22:29

USAFRICOM area of responsibility
In 1884 the major European powers gathered at the Berlin Conference to divide up those parts of Africa that had escaped colonization and to create a consortium to dominate and exploit an entire continent and its peoples.

The anti-colonial struggles after the Second World War put an end to that enforced order, but 126 years later there are ominous indications that the former colonial masters are nostalgic for their past power.

Flashback:How the forgotten city of Halabja became the launchpad for war on Iraq

16-03-2010 18:24

Tony Blair, George Bush and Jose Maria Aznar at the Azores Summit, 16 March 2003
When the Bush administration went to war with Iraq in March 2003, the centerpiece of its justification for war was weapons of mass destruction.

But its precise timing was driven, in large part, by the March 16 anniversary of the poison gas attack on the Iraqi Kurdish town of Halabja. On the fifth and twentieth anniversaries of these two tragic events, a study of the connection between them reveals a deliberate pattern of twisting and fabricating intelligence to meet policy objectives.

US-NATO "strategic concept": Global warfare

15-03-2010 19:17

NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen
On March 12, North Atlantic Treaty Organization Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen arrived in Warsaw to participate in the NATO’s New Strategic Concept – Global, Transatlantic and Regional Challenges and Tasks Ahead conference.

His address reiterated the now standard demand that NATO combine Article 5 so-called collective defense for its members – in Poland’s case that can only be a reference to Russia – with expeditionary deployments outside NATO’s self-defined area of responsibility as exemplified by recent wars and other armed missions in the Balkans, Afghanistan, the Gulf of Aden and the Horn of Africa, the Mediterranean Sea and the Darfur region of Sudan.
