Dear friends of peace and justice

04-01-2005 16:03

The 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.”

Robert Fisk Interview - Middle East in 2004

04-01-2005 13:15

ROBERT 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. But the American project for democracy or whatever its real purposes were, for oil, economic expansion, Middle East fit for Israel, whatever it may have been, that project is finished. It is hopeless. It cannot succeed.

Iraq's communications cease for upcoming election

03-01-2005 22:19

As 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

Freedom of Information Act, now effective

03-01-2005 21:10

The 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.

Mexico's economic miracle.

03-01-2005 19:28

Yes, the all reaching touch of globalisation has benefited everyone at every level of Mexican society. Ricardo (pictured below) is a young man with his finger firmly on the pulse of the free market. With the help of a corrupt local doctor he maintains a permanent open wound to attract the sympathy of passing American tourists. “The trick is…” he says “…to ensure that the leg remains infected enough to dribble puss and attract flies without having to be removed. This could cost, and the local begging market is already oversaturated with amputees”. On a good day Ricardo will earn even more than his twelve year old sister who earns 36 cents an hour making Nike trainers in a local sweatshop. GOD BLESS CAPITALISM!!

It 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. I am no fan of many NGOs as I see most of them propping up the mess left by oppressive and brutal empirical powers but I truly believe that the only organisation with any real credential is MSF (Medecins San Frontieres) Why do I think this, please read below:
