Sir Ian Blair Says New Terror Attack Could Lead to Internment

10-10-2006 18:42

Last week, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner addressed the Reform Club Media Group. Nothing like the 'establishment' sticking together is there? The meeting was conducted under Chatham House rules, which mean that no one attending is supposed to divulge what is said. But one person present was so appalled at Sir Ian's attitude and authoritarian stance that he has revealed to me an alarming - and seemingly off the cuff - remark made by Sir Ian at the event.

UK opposes release of British detainees at Guantánamo

10-10-2006 14:30

Documents obtained by the Guardian newspaper show that the Blair government is complicit in the ongoing detention of some 10 former British residents detained without trial in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. This is despite an admission by the Home Office that “they do not pose a sufficient threat” to justify even keeping them under house arrest.

Australian government demands hand-over of Solomon Islands’ attorney general

09-10-2006 21:51

A major expansion of the military
This unanimous support indicates what is at stake in the Solomons for the Australian ruling elite. Howard recently announced a major expansion of the military and specifically listed the PNG, Vanuatu and Fiji as potential targets for Australian intervention. In this context, a successful challenge to Australia’s grip over the Solomons would prove disastrous.

September 11: Message of an Ex-Marine to the Anti-War Movement

09-10-2006 21:41

The whole ordeal in the first Gulf war made me realize that things are not always what they seem to be. Yet, a decade later, on the morning of September 11th immediately after the towers fell, even though I intuited that the Bush administration was behind the attacks, I chose to believe the official story, because I did not dare to believe otherwise.

It wasn’t until the Bush administration started incessantly insisting that Iraq had WMDs, that I realized that something was not right. In early 2002, I began to search for answers on the Internet, never thinking that I would spend five to six hours daily for the next four years.

So now we know. We know that, just like war, 9/11 is a racket, a military false flag psy-op, a highly deceptive series of events conducted to gain the support of the population for wars in the Middle East.

Australian attorney-general insists sleep deprivation is not torture

09-10-2006 21:17

Ruddock told the ABC he was concerned about Washington’s new legislation, which restablishes military kangaroo courts and gives President Bush exclusive power to interpret the Geneva Conventions and declare virtually anyone an enemy combattant, incarcerate them and suspend their basic legal rights, including habeas corpus. According to the attorney general, however, the new law is too restrictive and “may well limit the capacity of intelligence organisations in the future.”

Media Pics From Sack Parliament Protest

09-10-2006 19:19

As anti-war and other campaigners gathered to give a P45 to the MPs, the MET police also gathered, outnumbering those brave enough to turn up and protest. Of course protests are now effectively banned under SOCPA legislation, and the police used force to both disperse and corral protestors. Several have been arrested and several injured including an NUJ photographer taken to hospital with worrying injuries,

Below are some thumbnails of pictures published by some of the main picture agencies to give you an idea of the event and the media reporting. Higher size and resolution pictures are available online,
