25-10-2006 02:52A couple of weeks ago a large contingent of Brighton squatters got together and occupied a large disused 'mental' hospital. The occupation was ostensibly to provide a roof over the steadily growing number of people fed up and disillusioned with the non-choice offered under the rule of Capital, in the housing sphere as in every other sphere under this systematic death forced upon us; the opportunity will also, however, be used to demonstrate alternative ways of organising day to day, in the here and now, the praxis of the theory, which will take the shape of whatever those organising see fit and within whatever parameters they deem to be appropriate- or in other words, get down there and do something!

Scottish, churches, charities, schoolteachers, trade unions, neighbours have condemned the dawn raids by immigration officials on innocent asylum seeking families in Glasgow.
24-10-2006 11:47Reducing unemployment and intensive education for children and youth are prerequisites for mastering the future. Instead the economy and politics constantly refer to demography. Catastrophic reports sell better than the truth.. The "forgotten factors" in future predictions are crucial.
24-10-2006 08:07It is basically my response to news about some new anti-cannabis adverts I saw on television on the ABC world news on the morning of Oct. 24, 2006. I cannot stand the outright lies they are foisting on the kids and adults who have already had enough yellow journalistic scare tactics already to get us involved in Iraq and don't need any more such from Industrialists and politicians or some Vicars.

22-10-2006 18:41Dear all
5 disabled monks have already died as a result of this blockade. See
They are being sentenced for "heresy" (as a result of their beliefs). They
are not actually "heretical" in True Orthodox Christian terms. It is their

Support the monks in maintaining their peaceful existence in the face of
state sponsored violence.

Confronted by more and more scandalous episodes leaking to the public and the recent rise of persistent family campaigns demanding truly independent inquiries, the latter might be just about to change. Currently an ombudsman board is being installed.
In the UK also an 'Independent' Police Complaints Commission had been installed a few years ago (only after persistent family campaigning, just in case you were harboring any doubts). But still the 'friendly unarmed bobbies' kill far more people than police forces of other european countries, while factual immunity of officers prevails.
