10-07-2008 14:44Following on from the news that News International threatened Media Lens with legal and police action, Media Lens has posted a new alert about the repression. This was in connection with their critical commentary on the bias of the Times over Iran and the nuclear issue. Media Lens, for those who have not encountered their work, are a small (three person) web-based team who analyse British media output, especially at the "liberal" end of the spectrum. Since 2001 they have been publishing free email 'alerts' about mainstream distortion and bias based on Chomsky and Herman's "Propaganda Model" in their book "Manufacturing Consent".

09-07-2008 20:38Make your stand against the vivisection industry and animal abusers with us at the Carnival Against Vivisection at Sequani Labs on Saturday September 6th it starts at 12 noon meeting opposite the Ledbury Train Station on the grass verge. This protest is in solidarity with Sean Kirtley who was imprisoned by the state for supposedly organising protests against Sequani. Even though he has never broken the law himself at Sequani (and the police agree) he was sent to prison under new SOCPA legislation which shatters the right to organise and protest in a free democracy.
