02-04-2006 15:46People have been asking me what happened with the appeal of the ‘Fairford Five’ and the Greenpeace activists in the House of Lords. Others will know by now that the law lords unanimously ruled against us. Aggression, they said - the crime of attacking another nation - is a crime in international law, but cannot be said to be part of British domestic law.

01-04-2006 23:00Critical Mass Brighton has always been an extremely postive experience. However, the party got somewhat dampened last week when the police decided to break the spirit of it all by turning up with an all round bad attitude.

01-04-2006 12:23A student of Dr Frank Ellis - the Leeds lecturer suspended for his racist views - asks why the university couldn't handle a heated argument, and nothing to do with the cretinous claims made by UAF.
An amazing 2000 people turned out to let Condoleeza Rice, Jack Straw et al know that Liverpudlians don't want to be nice & hospitable to a high-ranking representative of an imperialist aggressor, responsible for the needless tragic deaths of a hundred thousand Iraqis, two thousand-plus of their own soldiers, and hundreds of British soldiers. Not to mention the continued detention without trial of British men, along with hundreds of others, in Guantanamo Bay, and the deliberate rendition of prisoners for torture in countries with terrible human rights records.
There was a huge amount of energy, good humour and determination in the crowd. Banners made every possible word play on Beatles references and 'Rice'. A sound system blasted out "Give Peace a Chance", Steve Earle "The Revolution Starts Now" and the Star Wars theme. Even after Ms Rice entered, many of the crowd stayed around, and were even joined by latecomers.

In the BBC Have Your Say discussion about Condoleeza Rice's visit a couple of comments mention that she visited BAE Systems arms factory.
