The Usual Suspects, Fascists.

17-03-2004 04:20

Aznar's Popular Party (being the haven of the Franco fascists just as the Christian Democrats in Germany became the haven of Nazis after World War Two) more than likely contracted the men arrested through their handlers (the Bush regime) to plant the bombs that went off Thursday in Spain in an attempt to shift a weakening or possible loss for the Popular Party in the Spanish parliament to a resounding victory for the Popular Party by blaming the attacks on the militant Basque separatists, the ETA.

Cambridge screening of "We Interrupt This Empire" to mark one year of occupation

16-03-2004 23:49

This Sunday (21 March), Cambridge Indymedia is re-screening "We Interrupt This Empire", a collaborative work by independent video activists which documents the direct action that shut down the financial district of San Francisco in the weeks following the United States' invasion of Iraq. This is an unflinching look at the city's radical resistance to an illegal and horrific war, the aftermath of which is still with us a year on, with no end to military occupation in sight.

GM Danger to humans

16-03-2004 22:11

Interesting reference article from the Evening Standard because it has direct evidence of harm to humans from GM crops. (Though I don't think this is the first instance as the article claims.)

Iraqi Opinion and the Western Media

16-03-2004 17:05

The national survey of Iraq conducted this February by Oxford Research International hit the news on the 16th of March. The poll of well over 2000 Iraqis was sponsored by the BBC in the UK, ABC in the US, ARD of Germany and the NHK in Japan. A news bulletin on the BBC's Radio 1 claimed that "most Iraqi's think their lives are better than before the war a year ago" according to the poll. In the US, the New York Times also covered the story, but gave it less prominence (1). They write that the poll finds "an upbeat sense among most that their lives were better than before the war" although "other questions about the invasion provoked more negative reactions". The BBC news website headlined with the story (2), musing that the poll will "make good reading for US President George W Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair". This is no doubt true when viewed through the ideological bias of the New York Times and the BBC. A cursory look beyond their 'liberal objectivity' at the actual facts of the survey suggests very different conclusions.
