12-03-2015 21:01Crufts dog Jagger - do ordinary dogs and cats matter when treated by vets?
The ‘international outcry’ over the reported poisoning of the Crufts dog Jagger
should serve as a most urgent reminder of the need to watch what the vets businesses es actually do about vulnerable helpless animals and their emotionally trapped owners and carers who take them to the vets
On the 2nd of March 2015 Disabled People Against the Cuts, Mental Health Resistance Network, Black Triangle and many other associated groups took to the streets to protest against the US company Maximus taking over the contract from Atos. The contract involves administering the Work Capability Assessment on behalf of the Department of Work and Pensions.
A national day of action was called for Monday 2 March to protest the ongoing use of the discredited Work Capability Assessments to determine fitness for work or otherwise and to leave Maximus, the company that has taken over from Atos to carry these out, in no doubt that resistance will be ongoing.
2 March is the first working day of Maximus' new contract and protests were held in 30 UK towns and cities including here in Wrexham and at Maximus HQ in central London. A solidarity demo was also organised in Toronto at the offices of Maximus Canada. In Wrexham, there was a small but highly visible protest outside the DWP and Medical Examination Centre on Grosvenor Road.

A young man is left in a bath to drown while in the care of Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust, led by Chief Executive Katrina Percy, who sees no reason to resign in spite of ongoing failings at facilities she is ultimately responsible for.
A recent inspection report at the only remaining in-patient service on the same site has identified problems that include extremely stressed and exhausted staff on duty and on call for unacceptably long hours because of under-staffing. This is not a problem confined to Southern Health, but what are we going to do about it?

01-09-2014 18:47I am copying here the text of a discussion on an internet forum called LymeNet, in which a US intelligence mole calling herself "Marnie", who has been in place on the forum for THIRTEEN YEARS, falls to pieces and outs herself, telling us that the Lyme Disease - biowarfare coverup is necessary and for our own protection (!!!)
22-08-2014 11:49After the very successful 1st Northern Vegan Festival in Manchester last year, which over 2500 people came to, a 2nd much bigger Festival takes place next month in Blackpool, before we move back to Manchester in 2015 for an even bigger event.
08-08-2014 17:30Seemingly unrelated to each other, two current developments make the world appear like a patient from whose bed it seems difficult to walk away. A hygiene catastrophe is likely to become more deadly than war, and unlike in the Fukushima case in this instance out in the open. Second, a tsunami of rumours about internet privacy breaches has stirred up many who otherwise share little else with each other. Each of this shall be discussed and analysed here with the due precision and brevity to provide the essential knowledge to extinguish these catastrophes with their roots. But first it is necessary to understand how the two relate to each other. It is no mere coincidence that such profound threats against the bodily and mental health of huge populations are occurring in concert. The two layers of symptoms are resulting from the same health catastrophe which has affected the world and expresses itself both in neglect and in repression. What now is visible to the bare eye are the side-effects of a disease befalling species like this and its amplification of the conditions of its own existence at the price of the survival of these species. The full image of that disease, how it can be recognised and how it can be prevented, including its name, will be provided in this report.
