Teaching the High Court Australia, the Rule of Law and basic Human Rights: when

Teaching the High Court Australia, the Rule of Law and basic Human Rights: when is Ignorance NOT an excuse?

The article demonstrates the stranglehold lawyers have on the media. We make Judges out of these people! No wonder the country is in a mess. Lawyers refuse to accept HREOA1986 as law, because it makes their monopoly profession, an illegal one, and without discrimination, anyone can be a lawyer/advocate.

Combine it with our Notice of a Constitutional Matter, Writ of Mandamus, Lets see if we cant celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the year that Australians get confirmation of their already passed and underused Bill of Rights

Abolish Immigration Prisons Picket- 21 March, Edinburgh

13-03-2009 23:04

No one should be imprisoned for trying to seek a better life for themselves and their families. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the circumstances under which people are held are scandalously poor, and private companies like G4S profit from human suffering.

13-03-2009 13:08

After yesterdays presentation in parliament of a report into the abuse of police powers during the climate camp protests at Kingsnorth in 2008, the Kent Police have taken the unusual step of reporting and turning themselves in to be investigated by the IPCC. They will investigate claims that the police engaged in a systemic campaign of phycological terror against the campers which included sleep deprivation through helicopter overflying late into the night, mock night and dawn raids by tooled up riot police, and the infamous 'Flight of the Valkyries' incident.

LGC calls for independent inquiry into UK involvement in extraordinary rendition

13-03-2009 11:19

Over the past few weeks, evidence has been emerging and pressure has been growing for an independent inquiry into the UK's involvement in extraordinary rendition, both of British nationals/residents and foreign nationals with no ties to the UK, by being complicit in torture, facilitating the "rendition" (kidnap and torture) of individuals in Iraq, Pakistan, Gambia, etc. and allowing "rendition" flights to stop over, fly over or refuel on British territory. Calls have been made by politicians, including Conservative Party leader David Cameron, for an independent inquiry.
Take action - write to your MP and the Foreign Office now and demand a full independent public inquiry!

Kurdish protest outside the Syrian embassy in London

12-03-2009 22:48

Kurdish refugees from across the country held a demonstration today at the Syrian embassy in London to commemorate what has come to be known as the Qamishli Uprising. Like every year, organisers had agreed with the Metropolitan Police on a designated area opposite the embassy, but were surprised to find on arrival that this had been shifted onto a street island in the middle of the busy road, which wasn't very safe, to say the least. Protesters, however, stood mostly outside the metal barriers, waving banners and placards and shouting anti-Syrian regime slogans.
