14-09-2008 09:09

In THE NEW PEARL HARBOR REVISITED, David Ray Griffin provides a brilliant and much-needed companion to his path-breaking and movement-building book on 9/11, The New Pearl Harbor (NPH; 2004). Now, on the occasion of the seventh anniversary of those horrific events, Griffin surveys in detail all the main lines of evidence against the official account of 9/11 to have emerged during the last four years.

Disaster in Afghanistan

12-09-2008 22:00

It is difficult to find out what is really going on in Afghanistan. The focus of the mass media is almost entirely on the military activities of the Canadian and NATO forces. There is absolutely no coverage of political developments. The news on the economy is limited to the state of the poppy industry. This is no accident. The North American media, including the CBC, has strongly supported the U.S./NATO strategy and the administration of President Hamid Karzai. Contrary to the mainstream message, things are not going well.

NO to Missile Defense - Oct 4 - Menwith Hill

12-09-2008 06:24

Stop Missile Defense at Menwith, Harrogate.
Show your strength of feeling against American Missile Defense by coming to Menwith Hill near Harrogate. This US system, which Brown quietly said yes to in 2007, is making huge waves in Eastern Europe: Poland has agreed to missiles and the Czech Republic, despite a majority of its people against, has agreed to the US radar component for MD. Russia is already comparing these plans to the Cuban Missile Crisis...

Aldermaston Big Blockade – Monday, October 27 2008

11-09-2008 09:08

Help disrupt illegal work on WMD at Britain’s nuclear bomb factory

In 2006/7, Faslane 365 saw well over 1000 arrests during a year-long blockade of the Trident submarine base in Scotland . Last Easter, AWE Aldermaston saw its biggest demonstration in two decades as 5000 people surrounded the base to mark the 50th anniversary of the first Aldermaston march. Trident Ploughshares now invite you to a major blockade of the Berkshire nuke factory, where billions of pounds are currently being spent developing new warhead facilities that will scupper nuclear disarmament for another 50 years. Help us uphold international law by blockading this factory of death in what promises to be a colourful celebration of life and people power. There is a role for everyone. This event is supported by CND.

9/11 Accomplices vie for US Presidency

10-09-2008 16:04

In his much-ballyhooed acceptance speech, Barack Obama declared that he
would "finish the fight against the terrorists who actually attacked us on
9/11". If Obama wishes to be true to his promise, he could begin with his
own running mate, Senator Joe Biden.

US Election Campaign: National Security and Permanent Wars. Vying to Be Toughest

09-09-2008 13:47

Ignoring public sentiment, both party nominees stress "national security" and face off on who's toughest on "terrorism." For 2009, expect more of the same. A continued right wing agenda. Bigger budgets for militarism. Police state repression for enforcement. Little attention to public needs. No end to wars and occupation. Possible new ones against Iran, Pakistan, elsewhere in Eurasia, and a resurgent confrontation with Russia.

Support Danish WMD Whistleblower Frank Grevil

09-09-2008 10:05

Frank Grevil - imprisoned Danish whistleblower
Frank Søholm Grevil (born in 1960) had the rank of major in Forsvarets Efterretningstjeneste [FE] (Danish military intelligence agency). On February 22, 2004 he acted as a whistle blower leaking classified information about the FE's assessment of the possibility of weapons of mass destruction [WMD] in Iraq. These documents proved that Danish prime minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen lied to the Danish parliament when he claimed that there was evidence that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.

Frank Grevil was sentenced to four months in jail for leaking these documents.
