14-03-2006 16:03British and US prison wardens, who were meant to be guarding and protecting prisoners including Ahmed Saadat, leader of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, have withdrawn to allow the Israeli army to storm the prison. The British government must be urgently contacted to press them to re-enter the prison and protect those inside. Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas has condemned the raid and said the US and UK warders were responsible for the prisoners' safety. Reports are that already one prison policeman has been killed and 18 wounded. According to the BBC, ‘50 jeeps and three tanks pushed into the oasis town in the Jordan valley, as two helicopters hovered overhead. The army later brought a large armoured bulldozer to the prison, which proceeded to demolish walls.’

13-03-2006 17:28José Angel Altzuguren, alias Kotto, aged 39, from Bera (Navarre), was found dead in his prison cell in Soria (Castille), three days after his transfer there from Iruñea (Pamplona) prison. According to prison authorities, Kotto used the sheets from his bed to hang himself. The political prisoner was under medical treatment for depression, despite which he had been moved into an isolation cell in the Spanish prison. The Basque pro-amnesty movement called it an 'induced suicide'.
Much international publicity has come from the occupation and violent eviction of the Sorbonne university in Paris (video below). With the media making the obvious 1968 comparisons, riot police stormed the university building firing tear gas at around 4am on Saturday after hours of resistance from the occupiers and their supporters outside. There were around 30 arrests. The university had been occupied since Tuesday night with tensions increasing. On Friday police batton charged students who were blocking a road near to the university.
13-03-2006 04:48And then a perpetrator or bunglar on the side of militaristic over reaction in the Waco tragedy has the nerve to call indymedia free speech supporters and a group 'food not bombs' that gives away vegetarian meals 'terrorists' ! ? Truly when the Bush Regime confines 'free speech' to a cage or 'corral' what more does Mr. Rasner want in his rage to gut the Constitution and the First Amendent ?
The problem with revenge is that it lowers the humanity of those who exercise it down to the same level, of even below, those who committed the original crime. Although we can't yet know who was responsible for 911 or 1012, we do now know that forces of the Coalition of the Willing (CoW) have, on occasions, been just as barbaric as the people who killed on those dates. This has been amply demonstrated in Afghanistan and again in Iraq. If you doubt this, seek out more facts about the CoW's use of DU and NDU weaponry and cluster bombs. These horror weapons continue, to this day, to put young children and adult civilians at risk of injury or death from unexploded munitions, radiation, and toxic substances in the ground water and the food chain.
