Cycling and walking are convenient, fun and healthy – and they’re actually quicker, too. At 8.15 am on 15 June, cyclists took 10 mins to cross the city, while doing the same journey by car took the same amount of time as walking. See report and photos, follow links below.

Ambassador of Death, Right-Wing Death Squads, Drug Smuggling: George Bush's Plan

23-06-2004 01:36

Right wing death squads and a hub for drug smuggling is Bush's vision of democracy in Iraq all orchestrated by the ambassador of death, Negroponte.
