Paris Demo against EU constitution.

22-05-2005 20:16

Oh la la!
In Britain being anti Europe has always been associated with reactionary Torys or even more rightwing entities like UKIP and Veritas. Even openly nazi scum like the BNP have used it as a platform for their vileness. Meanwhile across the channel tradeunionists, lefties and anarcho-sydicalists have realised that far from being a progressive move the EU constitution is yet another move towards a neoliberal agenda. In fact it's little more than a rubber stamp to stitch up workers on a continental scale. On Saturady the NON! campaign had their main rally.

America's First 9-11-Utah Mormons, Polygamy and USA's dirty little secret

22-05-2005 17:06

When: Thursday and Friday, May 20 and 21, 2004 - 9AM
Where: Court room of Judge Valdez, Mathison Court House

Once again a felon, allowed to live the illegal lifestyle of polygamy, is in court for the maltreatment of children. This particular criminal has been in Utah courts before, pleading no contest to child abuse and serving only 28 weeks in county jail.

The state of Utah continues to harbor these criminals who exploit, harm and violate the human and civil rights of the most vulnerable. Tax payers continue to fund their lifestyle while the court system is sapped again and again when they get caught doing what is known to occur.

Like cases in the past, these children are only a few of the numerous children abused by this man and many others like him every day in Utah.

Human Dignity is Inviolable

22-05-2005 14:14

The Christian faith is obviously losing ground. Disorienta-tion and superstition spread. The merciless religion of the market has long replaced faith in the humanitarian God.. Act so you always treat people as ends in themselves and never merely as instruments or means to an end (Kant).
