12-10-2003 15:18AT this moment, nobody doubts that the Bush administration’s new foreign policy is basically one of military intervention, without respecting international institutions or world public opinion. The excuse of fighting terrorism has been demonstrated as the perfect alibi to substitute the previous one: the threat of Communism during the Cold war. Other less effective reasons lie behind it, not so effective as the anti-drug fight. The silence of the United Nations after the Iraq invasion, the European Union (EU)’s copycat behavior and the ferocious control it maintains on the great majority of Arab countries via puppet dictators thus guaranteeing impunity to the U.S. government.
The United States has not forgotten to send out sound bites on its next military objectives — Syria, Korea, Iran and Cuba. Just as in Iraq, the strategy begins by sowing seeds in international institutions, friendly governments and world public opinion suggesting complicity with international terrorism in those countries that are the object of intervention.

Links zum Thema WEF. Zusätzlich wird eine CD-Rom gestaltet, auf
welcher die wichtigsten Inhalte der Page publiziert werden und welche
auch zur Mobilisation verwendet werden soll.
Wenn ihr Lokal öffentliche Veranstaltungen durchführt, so meldet uns
dies doch bitte! Für diskrete Informationen bitte den Datenaustausch

12-10-2003 11:28The British government wants to build a new 4-lane highway through the Stonehenge World Heritage site and its surrounding landscape.
We want to stop them.
Less than 20% of the highway will be in a tunnel.
Over 80% will be bulldozed at ground level or in deep cuttings.
This highway will be massively destructive of the landscape around Stonehenge.
"...barbaric... No other country in the world would contemplate treating a site which is a world icon in such a way." Lord Kennet

11-10-2003 21:54PHONY LETTERS FROM OUR SOLDIERS IN IRAQ?: This is one of the most disgusting things I've seen in a while. I was tipped off by the folks at American Politics Journal about the appalling possibility that someone wrote a letter about how wonderful things are in Iraq, near Kirkuk, and signed several soldiers' names to the letter without them approving it, or their knowledge.
