The Demilitarized Zone in North America's Drug War

11-06-2012 20:25

In Vancouver, Canada there is an area of 1000 sq ft where it is legal to shoot heroin, or any kind of illegal drug. Fresh from Supreme Court victory, hear the founders of InSite, North America's only supervised injection site, talk about how they fought an antagonistic Conservative government and won the right to stay open...and they're hoping to see the same thing happen in the UK.

Census Refuser Derek Shields' Appeal at the Crown Court in Liverpool (Part 1)

08-06-2012 22:45

Derek Shields was found guilty of failing to complete the 2011 Census at Liverpool Magistrates court in January. He explained to the magistrates that he had refused to comply because of Lockheed Martin's involvement in the Census ('I'm not getting into bed with an arms dealer') and his Christian faith. Today, the Crown Court upheld that conviction for reasons that have yet to be given. An application by the prosecution (respondents) for £1,300 in costs was refused. No costs were awarded against Derek. Derek has made it clear that he does not intend to pay the fine imposed by the Magistrates Court.

Sickened by Muslim Council of Britain's Letter to the Queen

07-06-2012 07:16

Victims of the Great Famine of 1876–78 in India.
The MCB published a news release on 1st June 2012 titled ‘British Muslims & Muslim Council Celebrates Queens Reign’, saying 'British Muslims are “deeply grateful” for The Queen’s long interest in her Muslim subjects'. Upon reading this, I felt sick as the MCB have ignored and thus dismissed the abuses perpetrated/condoned by the British Monarchy. This article responds to the MCB news release & includes comments from a diverse group of people. Ths MCB news release has brought transparency to their role in the UK.

Israel: Racist Country !

03-06-2012 09:54

Israel is the most naive and racist country in the West ...... The migrants are less of a danger than what people think. The real danger is the way they are being treated. ..... Israel is both the most racist and most naive country in the West. Racist, because in no other country can politicians make remarks about migrants as they do here and still remain in office another day; naive, because only now has Israel discovered the problem that has been facing the “first world” for years. Only in Israel can a parliamentarian from the ruling party describe the migrants as a “cancer,” and, far worse, it is only in Israel that she could do so knowing that her contemptible racism would merely gain her support.

A Poem for the Diamond Jubilee

02-06-2012 19:55

Elizabeth is Head of the Church, of the State and of the Army,
Contemplation of her powers is enough to drive you barmy.

As Commander in Chief of the Forces she can start and end a war,
But God forbid the latter – the top brass and she want more.

STWC - get your views about their role on 15 Feb 2003 onto the big screen

01-06-2012 14:50

There's a film being made about the anti-war protests of 15 Feb 2003, the film makers "working closely with the Stop the War Coalition" amongst others. It doesn't sound like STWC will be claiming their share of responsibility for the failure of the day - by doing their utmost to stop any civil disobedience or resistance for example. The invitation suggests that the "Arab Revolutions and the subsequent Indignados and Occupy Movements" started here. Oh really? You may well not be selected if you present an alternative view of the day, but here are the details in case you'd like to take part.
