Hands of my Islam, Mr Blair

19-07-2005 18:10

Muslims condemn violence against innocents, which is why so many of us feel as much anger towards Blair as we do towards the London bombers. And the trail of blood on both counts leads back to 10 Downing Street.

London bombs community discussion - your help needed

13-07-2005 13:44

The rampART social centre is planning on hosting some kind of discussion event for people to talk about their concerns, fears, proposals etc in relation to the London bomb attacks.

It is particually hoped that it would enable a dialogue between different elements of the community in order to avoid or mitigate against ill-placed retribution and revenege attacks and to combat attempts to fuel hate and distrust by the some elements of society and the media.

It is also hoped that together we can identify and be aware of moves by the state to capitalise on the fear being generated in the wake of the attacks to clamp down even further on civil libities and introduce new draconian legislation and ID cards etc.
