22-01-2007 13:47Khoodeelaar! is demonstrating against Tower Hamlets Council today. Gathering at 5 PM Outside the Brady Centre in the Hanbury Street [off Brick Lane] London E1 .Today's Khoodeelaar! demonstration is marking the anniversary of the demand on Tower Hamlets Council to pass an unequivocal No to CrossRail hole Bill Motion that was made by a Khoodeelaar! community meeting held at the Brady Centre in hanbury Street. The meeting loudly agreed with me when I spoke to it and highlighted the roles played by certain elements exercising the crucial decision-making powers on and IN THE NAME of the Tower Hamlets Council in bringing the unnecessary Crossrail hole attacks on the community.

The fact that a presumably a formally educated, univerisity degreed, person like Sunday Mirror columnist Carole Malone would deny that Jade Goody's, of Big Brother TV show, tirades against Shilpa Shetty were racist (and why can't Goody's behavior not be judged as nasty and bullying *and* racist), is even more telling about many white Britons than that Goody herself would deny it.

21-01-2007 18:00The following facts are all we know for certain. A non-union firefighter - who sided with the Fire Authority's cuts agenda last year by crossing the Fire Brigades Union picket line - was badly injured when he tried to put one of his boots on. His foot was sliced open when he brought it down on a Stanley knife blade.
21-01-2007 14:15As the world races to nuclear confrontation in the Middle East the mass media is as quiet as a mouse. What is the latest news from the Persian Gulf? Confirmation of the reported build-up of Iranian troops on the Iraqi border required. Kurdish, Turkish and U.S. troop movements are strangely omitted from popular newswires. Follow-up coverage is a thing of the past, what is the latest from the Chinese leadership? THE PUBLIC DEMAND TO BE INFORMED AS IT IS THE PUBLIC THAT WILL DO THE DYING!
location most likely a 5star hotel with room for 300plus & usual facilities of G8 conferences
