04-12-2009 20:59Past, on-going and future Smash EDO update...With lots of ways to participate!
The basing of nuclear warheads on the territory of non-nuclear nations - and Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Turkey are non-nuclear nations - is a gross violation of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
04-12-2009 14:14In a climate in which the call for a consumer boycott of Israeli goods is finally gaining strength, one area of Israel’s economy is, as yet, surprisingly under-researched. Most of Israel’s industrial zones in the West Bank are connected to illegal residential settlements and provide an indispensable economic backbone to the local settler economy. Mishor Adumim is the second largest industrial zone in the Occupied Territories and the one through which the Palestinians have the most to lose.

4th December 2009
03-12-2009 12:54On 10th December 2009 a petition will be presented to Brighton and Hove City Council, demanding that the council table a motion condemning the activities of Brighton based arms manufacturer EDO MBM/ITT.
It becomes increasingly clear that the United States is fooling no one but its own citizens, who are victimized by their ignorance. “Military prowess seems to be the only power the United States has left.”

01-12-2009 22:28today was the first hearing in the decommissioners case ( http://decommissioners.co.uk/)
01-12-2009 21:46On 27th December it will be one year since Operation Cast Lead, the brutal 22 day bombing of Gaza by Israeli forces. Target Brimar will be organising 22 days of protest to commemorate not only those killed in Gaza, but those killed by UK/US forces in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere around the world.
The Obama prosecution of the Afghan war benefits the Zionist agenda, the Chinese policy of exhausting their Muslim and American foes in fighting each other, petroplutocrats, CIA and ATF heroin distribution and war profiteers as it hemorrhages money to over 1000 imperialist bases around the world. American soldiers died in the last 3 months in FOUR war zones: Afghanistan, Iraq, the Philippines, and in aircrashes in the US.
People's movements throughout the region to revolutionize corrupt, unequal systems that have isolated and excluded the vast majority in Latin American nations, are successfully taking power democratically and building new models of economic and social justice.
01-12-2009 12:48On Nov 30th, Rising Tide-Plymouth 'Climate refugees' d-locked themselves to Barclay's bank building's entrance to highlight the investments this bank is doing on Coal, Tar
Sands and Arms Trade in times of Climate emergency.
Two activists stayed locked on inside the building entrance for 2 1/2 hours chanting, singing, and informing Barclay's customers of Barclay's dodgy investments, before they were arrested. Barclays eventually closed their main entrance and members of the public were very supportive.
30-11-2009 23:49Article IV of the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) acknowledges the "inalienable right" of non-nuclear weapons states (NNWS) to research, develop, and use nuclear energy for non-weapons purposes.
Iran, a NNWS has been denied its "inalienable rights" while support and the exchange of nuclear-related information has been withheld. This begs the question why Iran should continue to honor the NPT?

30-11-2009 07:55"The National Front Against the Coup d'Etat has called on its participants to remain indoors in a "voluntary curfew" in noncooperation with the fraudulent vote. Should any incidents of violence occur today it won't be from the Resistance, but, rather, the result of the regime's own provocateurs. National presidential candidate Carlos H. Reyes withdrew from the ballot last month, as did many Congressional candidates and one major-party vice presidential candidate: Santos' own running mate on the Liberal Party line is among those who reject this fraudulent process as illegitimate."
