Media hide truth: 9/11 was inside job

14-05-2006 19:49

The mainstream media will never report the truth of 9-11 because the mainstream media HELPED SELL THE LIE IN THE FIRST PLACE.

The mainstream media is stuck with Bush and 9-11. They signed on to help Bush sell his lies and his deceptions and his wars and there is no way they can bring the President down without brining themselves down in the process.

So, who needs the mainstream media. The public is abandoning the traditional media and getting their news from sites like this one.

Beep if U luv Brian

Brian tries on his mask for size
Almost a week has passed since the courts found the Brian Haw protest to be illegal after all; yet Brian and- today - forty or fifty supporters are still very present in Parliament Square.

Add the constant beeping of passing motorists, responding to the new "Beep for Brian" sign, and it's pretty clear that the level of support and the focus of publicity is making it difficult for police to enforce the judgement.

Infotour G8 2007 in Greece

14-05-2006 12:54

Audiences in Athens and Patra
Around the European Social Forum ESF there were 4 audiences of the Infotour Group (dissent!) in Athens and Patra. In Athens there had been 3: At Autonomous Playground, Autonomous Spaces and the Antiauthoritarian, Egalitarian, Anarchist and Libertarian Forum. The Greek left is very segmented, also anarchist and autonomous groups. By this there had been a total of 4 parallel Forums against the official ESF (the fourth was the Antiimperialist Forum, where we didn`t show up). The audiences were mediocre attended, like 25 on the average. But discussions were interesting, many people are enthusiastic and like to be involved in further mobilizations. The new Anticapitalist Network for example would like to do their own presentations on G8 2007 in Mazedonia and Hungary.
