RAF Brize Norton blockaded, 12th Aug 2006

12-08-2006 21:08

RAF Brize Norton - State terror is terrorism
A protest called at very short notice outside the main gates of RAF Brize Norton had the unexpected effect of closing the main gates, and possibly the entire base, to all traffic for nearly two hours. Brize Norton is one of the RAF bases reportedly being used to refuel planes delivering bombs from the US to Israel for use in the ongoing massacre of Lebanon. Meanwhile a peace camp is being established nearby to watch for further such flights. Some photos of the day are attached, and with a bit of luck a movie of the more exciting bits should materialise here later.

Civil War Looms in Iraq

"US Generals forsee Iraqi partition" was the unnerving headline penned by Guardian journalists Julian Borger, Ewen MacAskill and Richard Norton Taylor yesterday. They quote the leaked memo to Prime Minister Tony Blair written by William Patey, Britain's outgoing Ammbassador to Iraq, which revealed that "a low intensity civil war and a de facto division of Iraq" is currently more probable than the stabilization of the country. His comments were shockingly confirmed by General John Abizaid, the head of US Central Command, and General Peter Pace, the Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, both of whom warned of the imminent probability of Iraq's slide to civil war.

Lebanese Hospitals Under Threat From Fuel Crisis - Thurs 10th Aug - Photo Report

11-08-2006 23:39

I’m at the Government University to talk to Bilal Masri, the assistant general director of the Government University Hospital. The Government has announced that the hospitals are in danger of running out of fuel for their generators. ‘So far we are doing OK. We think we have fuel for the generators for another week to ten days running at our present capacity. This is about 25% of what is usual. We are saving electricity wherever possible. We keep essential operations like ER and ICU running. Everywhere else electricity is a commodity. If the situation continues to escalate and the Israelis stop the fuel ship from docking in the port, then we could see an energy crisis in the whole country - not just the hospital.’
