23-02-2007 16:43

Further to my last posting I wanted to draw your attention to these articles on UKIP...

and this

... this is madness! Criminal oligarch Cherney meeting with a senior member of the House of Lords to provide money for UKIP... why else would a Lord meet with a dubious Russian oligarch. How can this have gone unnoticed???

Axe the Bin Tax

23-02-2007 15:58

Councils are using recycling and waste reduction as an excuse to cut services. The latest scam about to hit households on top of fines and cuts in service is a 'pay-as-you-throw tax' or 'bin tax'.

The Howard government, RAMSI, and the April 2006 Solomon Islands’ riots Part 2

22-02-2007 21:24

The conclusion RAMSI
The Howard government immediately moved to derail the official investigation, using all the dirty tricks at its disposal. Former Australian Federal Court Justice Marcus Einfeld, who was appointed head of the inquiry, became the target of an extraordinary media witchhunt in Australia, ostensibly over an unpaid $77 speeding fine. Following Einfeld’s announcement that he was resigning from the Solomons’ investigation, the barrage of sensationalist stories disappeared from the headlines as suddenly as they had emerged.

A bunch of raving Facists!

Criminal Mikhail Cherney presents Lord Pearson of Rannoch with the award
Have you heard of the Jerusalem Summit? Have you heard of the Russian oligarch Mikhail Cherney?

The Jerusalem Summit is quite simply a bunch of fascists! Who... Not only held this summit meeting in London, but were allowed to hold it at the House of Lords.

Their main aim is to rid the West of Islam and unite all Christians to resist Islamic values. In their own words, 'the West must unite and resist Islam.'

Solomon's Riots
Taken together, what is known about the events of April 18-19, 2006 leaves little doubt that Australian forces were deliberately stood down in order to allow for an extended eruption of violence. Certainly the least plausible explanation is that offered by Castles and other Australian officials.

now n power act to kerb legal press activities on public highways, this means officially democracy is over and freedom us gone if the high court are willing to grant injunctions to ban legitimate news gatherers shooting from public highways. This is unheard of and a disgrace.

De Menezes Murderer/Patsy Rewarded

21-02-2007 02:42

Surveillance video proved the police to be lying about the incident. It appears that this officer was rewarded for covering for the real shooter, who may have worked for an intelligence service, and murdered the electrician who saw something he should not have. You do not empty a clip into someone's head at point-blank range.

Torture at Abu Ghraib: The full sworn testimony of Ali Shalal

20-02-2007 14:34

The following text is the testimony given by Professor Ali Shalal, who was tortured at Abu Ghraib Prison. This statement was presented to the War Crimes Commission set up under the helm of former Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, as evidence in the procedure launched in Kuala Lumpur directed against US President George W. Bush, Britain's Prime Minister Tony Blair and Australia's Prime Minister John Howard.

Ali Shalal, known to the World as the "man behind the hood", is a man of tremendous courage and determination. I heard his testimony, I had the opportunity of speaking to him on several occasions in the course of the war crimes Conference. We established bonds of friendship and solidarity. We shared our determination to bring the war criminals in high office to justice.

Ali Shalal is a professor of theology. He is a tremendous source of inspiration. It is important to understand that what Ali Shalal experienced is part of a routine process of torture, applied systematically to those arrested. Many of his companions in Abu Ghraib died as a result of torture or were executed upon their release so that they would not reveal the gruesome horrors and atrocities committed on the orders of the Bush administration. Also of significance, as confirmed by his testimony, was the fact that Israeli "civilians" were involved in assisting the US prison interrogators.

Ali Shalal survived and provided testimony in the name of all those who were tortured to death. Ali Salal's words will go down in history.

The war criminals in high office will be brought to justice. It is also our determination that they will be given a fair trial.

Palestine: Anarchists Resist the Wall

20-02-2007 10:11

Activists using razor wire from the wall to block Basel Street in downtown Tel A

Jonathan Pollak, an activist with Anarchists Against the Wall was sentenced to three months in prison, that will be activated if he is convicted of a similar charge again. Pollak was sentenced today after he was convicted together with 10 other activists for blocking a road in Tel Aviv in protest of the construction of the wall. He asked the Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court to sentence him to jail time rather than community service or a suspended sentence, saying he has no intention to stop resisting the occupation. The ten other convicted activists were sentenced to 80 hours of community service.
