12-09-2004 15:44The weekly picket of Marks and Spencer in solidarity with Palestine has again been attacked by organised fascists. British and Israeli Zionists opportunistically used the anniversary of the 11th September tragedy to assault the democratic rights of anti-apartheid activists by "kicking" our peaceful protest "off the streets of Manchester". The racists, that include members of Israel's ruling Likud party as well as known British right-wing thugs, numbered more than seventy.
11-09-2004 15:55In the last 3 years the direct pain that was felt in the United States has been exported to other parts of the world. The total number of deceased on the day of the attacks on New York, Washington and Pensylvania fell just short of 3000. In Iraq today the figure for the dead is not counted - but is widely believed to be in the tens of thousands. Now over 1000 US troops have also been killed.

Many of the petitions are focusing on violation of labour rights, land rights, and other human rights issues. Many were urging the release of Ye Guozhu -- a leading activist who was recently arrested for applying to organise a 10,000-strong rally in Beijing. Other petition issues are also the forced eviction of parts of Bejing ahead of the Olympic Games.
"The right to petition is guaranteed in Chinas constitution, with no exceptions made for major events," says HRIC president.

Blair was fond of saying "tough on crime, tough on the causes of crime". however when it comes to terrorism "tough on terrorism, tough on er. . .no!!". the only way to defeat terrorism, is to defeat the causes of terrorism.
09-09-2004 07:37Helen visits Al-Nahrwan, 30 km from Baghdad. Here she visits a rudimentary clinic. Operations are as little as $3. There is, however, no safety net if things go wrong. There is no anaesthetic, just Diazapam. The procedures were carried out professionally, with what little facilities were available. However it simply isn't acceptable that Iraqis should have this as a medical service.
08-09-2004 19:14As Blair n Blunkett's control freakery heads out of control; as prison numbers hit another record high; and as prison suicides increase (15 in August alone); a small charity that works to uphold prisoners rights on a daily basis seeks financial support. Please read on.
