The family have been living in the UK for six years after fleeing illegal persecution by the Sri Lankan army.It is extremly perilous for the family to return to Sri Lanka and it is inconceivable that they should be forcibly returned.

05-04-2007 18:43There has been some really good reporting here on Josh Wolf, the 'anarchist blogger' .

Sharing of Unedited Video and Minor Grand Jury Cooperation Leads to Release
On April 3rd, independent reporter Josh Wolf was freed from federal custody after spending 7 1/2 months in prison for failing to turn over video footage to a federal grand jury. The unedited video was the target of the federal grand jury subpoena that caused him to be held at the federal holding facility, in Dublin, CA for over 226 days, a record amount of time for any journalist in U.S. history.
That morning, Josh wrote on his blog, "During the course of this saga I have repeatedly offered to allow a judge to be the arbiter over whether or not my video material has any evidentiary value. Today, you the public have the opportunity to be the judge and I am confident you will see, as I do, that there is nothing of value in this unpublished footage."

04-04-2007 18:33There is a conspiracy among the international money powers of the world to create superstates that will (ostensibly) supplant the constitutional rights of the great democratic nations (UK, USA, etc). In the UK it will be a European Constitution that will (ostensibly) override the Magna Carta and British Constitution. In the United States the assault has been success versions of the USA PATRIOT Act and a movement toward a North American Union.

03-04-2007 16:11A RULING by Switzerland's highest court has opened up the possibility that people with serious mental illnesses could be helped by doctors to take their own lives.
Switzerland already allows doctor-assisted suicide for terminally ill patients under certain circumstances. The Federal Tribunal's decision puts mental illnesses on the same level as physical ones.
The move has been labelled as "dangerous" as it could lead to a rapid rise in the number of people travelling to Switzerland for assisted suicide.
