04-01-2005 16:03The recent disasters in south asia have rightfully attracted the attention of the world as humanity responds with the desire to support and assist that I believe is our specie’s nature when confronted with such need. However, we also know that this system has a compelling desire to divert our gaze from another and ongoing disaster of it’s own making. That is why I have sent to you these reports on the plight of the Iraqi people struggling against continuing war crimes and occupation. It is our duty and it is in our interest to put an end to this clear “crime against humanity.”

04-01-2005 13:15ROBERT FISK: Well, I think that the whole project in Iraq is finished. We are not being told by Mr. Blair in my case and Bush in yours that this is the case, and perhaps through their own misjudgment or their own fantasies, they don't even accept this themselves.

03-01-2005 22:19As the elections draw closer in Iraq the co-alition forces with the Interim government have decided that silence speaks a thousand words.
Up to the end of the elections all communications within Iraq have ceased, they are effectively cut-off from the world and each other. In a country fighting for basic rights there has descended a new method in the fight against ‘Insurgents’, which I call QUARANTINE IRAQ

03-01-2005 21:10The FOI Act is only part of the new openness package. Environmental Information Regulations (EIRs), which implement an EU directive, come into force at the same time. These provide a more powerful right to information about pollution, conservation, the natural environment, land use, road building, genetically modified organisms, air and water-borne diseases, food contamination and many other issues.
03-01-2005 14:04It would appear that many aid agencies are giving preferential treatment to rich tourists affected by the Tsunami victims instead of those living in the stricken areas. This alongside the weasel words of Tony Blair apparently supported by George Bush is unacceptable.
