News and photos from Afghanistan

24-07-2004 14:04

A Butcher
So the elections are now on 9^th October 2004. These are the presidential ones.
The parliamentary, district etc elections will be next April or maybe May or
perhaps June or even never (see related articles). Massaoda Jalal, the only
female candidate for president was in UK this week (see articles). From Bush’s
point of view if the elections are going to be relatively peaceful they can be
spun as bringing democracy to Afghanistan but if it looks like they will be a
violent mess then they are likely to be post phoned again until next year and he
can spin how the process of democracy is firmly n place n Afghanistan.

24-07-2004 12:14

Sunday 25th July sees a rally in Trafalgar Square at 1pm, by the Islamic fundamentalist group Al-Mahajiroun.
The National Front have called a counter demonstration.

The new anti-fascist group Anti-Fa sees very little difference between the fascism of the National Front and the Islamic fundamentalism of Al-Mahajiroun.
Indeed their views on gay people, Jews, Women, Trades Unionists, Anarchists etc would appear to be virtually identical.

Meet outside the national Gallery at 12.30pm.

SPEAK: National Demo 24th July

23-07-2004 17:37

The animal torture centre currently under construction in Oxford is the latest attempt by the university and its friends in this vivisection-obsessed Government to make the UK the new animal abuse capital of Europe. The Oxford University hierarchy like those at Cambridge have sought to use lies and deceit in a bid to hide the truth behind their plans for an expansion of animal experimentation at the university. The new building will host suites of labs and be open to 'visiting' animal researchers keen to boost their academic credentials or chase ever more lucrative research grants.

If you have testicles or know someone who does…

I see I have your attention.

Before I get onto testicles, let me just say:

In section 1, we’ll talk balls. Section 2 will look at why exactly our precious genetic inheritance is being threatened – for no good reason at all, it turns out, except meeting government targets and enriching one bloated company. Section 3 has a list of resources from Greenpeace for anyone who wants to act…
