World's forgotten mothers wants UN's help.

Bhutanese women in protest.
After fifteen years in exile the Bhutanese government has shown no real efforts to repatriate its citizens. We continue to remain in the refugee camps where the situation is increasingly degrading due to the prolonged waiting and the drastic cuts in the supply of the basic facilities has further worsened the condition of the people. The education sector has not been able to maintain the quality of education supposedly due to the financial constraints. The sudden halt of supplying panel roofs and green vegetables and the repeated announcement made by the funding agencies to further cut of the essential items such as kerosene and other items has frustrated us. At the same time, the sufferings of the people inside the country under the despotic rule of the present government are equally being left unheard and unnoticed by the world community.

Man to stand trial because police said he lied?

16-11-2005 04:56

Because authorities 'believed'?
So if the authorities believe someone you know poses a terrorist risk - then if they interview you in alleged connection to their belief - and if police believe that you lied about it - then you can follow old mate here and prove you didn't lie or go to jail? Or be refused bail anyway and go to jail until you prove otherwise - after being isolated in AAA maximum-security with no fresh air or sunlight 'indefinitely' and get drip-fed through the courts?

US Prof's WTC Demolition Theories on MSNBC's Tucker Carlson - 9/11 Truth Hits Ma

15-11-2005 21:57

Unfortunately it appeared the Professor had never had such an interview before and was not prepared for the short time of the interview (5 min) or the fact that they wouldn't run the video he sent of the WTC collapse, or the types of questions being asked (i.e., don't you think this will be offensive to people to say that Muslims aren't to blame?). Nonetheless, he DID get some key points out there and has a great deal of courage and we should all thank him. Links at the bottom.

Call for Solidarity: Repression vs. Indigenous, Colombia

15-11-2005 19:30

Indymedia UK are currently getting reports of 2000 riot police and an unspecified army presence outside of a squat held by 500 people, mostly poor indigenous families, in Cauca, Colombia. Over the past few days, 1 person has been killed and 37 people have been injured by police beatings and bullets. The situation is tense and they are calling for solidarity emails, letter-writing and publicity because they are worried that without this the police and army will attack.

Guambianos, Kokonuko and Nasa indigenous people, as well as thousands of peasants that are demanding land, have occupied haciendas (a hacienda is a huge piece of rural property) in several parts of Cauca since the 12th of October.

They are protesting because the INCODER (Colombian Institute for Rural Development) is not given funds or legal power to achieve rural reform, in Cauca or in the rest of the country.

Despite being heavily tear-gassed and losing one boy (Belisario Camayo Huetoto, 16) dead to police bullets, the families on the occupied land are calling for letters, phone calls, emails, and faxes to the Colombian Embassy to make it politically more difficult for the government to allow the police and army to attack the settlement.

Chomsky Answers the Guardian

15-11-2005 14:05

This is an open letter to a few of the people with whom I had discussed the Guardian interview of 31 October, on the basis of the electronic version, which is all that I had seen. Someone has just sent me a copy of the printed version, and I now understand why friends in England who wrote me were so outraged.
