With the independence of our judiciary already severely compromised, Criminal Blair takes it one step further, threatening to scupper a fraud investigation to help out his friends at BAE.
This episode features an anti-war speech by Journalist John Pilger recorded September 24 in London. Our favorite child sit-com star Dickie Richards hits the campaign trail as on the Republican ticket. A few semi-rude tunes from when I was a kid. Also a silly goofball poem by Jack Kerouac read by Juliana Hatfield.
This is an 800 word article about the ant-war demonstration outside the US Embassy in Madrid on Saturday 24th September. 18 photos are attached.

“Such a perfect democracy constructs its own inconceivable foe, terrorism. Its wish is to be judged by its enemies rather than by its results. The story of terrorism is written by the state and it is therefore highly instructive. The spectators must certainly never know everything about terrorism, but they must always know enough to convince them that, compared with terrorism, everything else must be acceptable, or in any case more rational and democratic” (Guy Debord, Comments on the Society of the Spectacle).

The Anti-Iraqi War rally in Washington, DC., today, 09/24/05, put on by the “United for Peace and Justice” organization, was a highly-spirited event. The Ellipse was overflowing with protesters and the march around the White House seemed to go on forever. MP, George Galloway, blasted George W. Bush and Tony Blair as “war criminals.” He said that we owe it to the world to make it clear that these “war criminals are not acting in our name!”

Not quite as spectacular as what was happening in London and Washington, but nonetheless significant was a Peace Procession which took place yesterday afternoon in Cambridge, headed up by local Samba Band Arco Iris, and opened by Mayor John Hipkin (himself a member of Campeace), speaking about his recent visit to Hiroshima and the impact that the Atom bomb has had not only on those that were killed at the time, but also the generations that followed.
