04-08-2006 19:56

A Somerset man has become the first person convicted for breaking the ban on fox hunting with hounds.
Tony Wright, 52, denied breaching the Hunting Act, when he led the Exmoor Foxhounds on 29 April last year.

But he was fined £500 at Barnstaple Magistrates' Court in a case brought by the League Against Cruel Sports.

He was the first fox huntsman to be summoned to court for defying the law which came into force last year in England and Wales.

No Standards, No Accountability

04-08-2006 19:47

Ten years ago, Representative Walter Jones (R-NC) introduced The War Crimes Act of 1996. This statute was one of many in the mid-1990s devoted to the principle of extraterritoriality: the extension of U.S. laws to other countries. When applied, such laws subject foreign nationals to prosecution if they treat a U.S. citizen or U.S. property in a way that violates U.S. laws.

Depleted Uranium Situation Worsens Requiring Immediate Action By Bush, Blair, Ol

04-08-2006 18:09

[Uranium weapons are being used in
Lebanon which means it is a NUCLEAR
WAR! These weapons are extremely
poisoness and deadly........along with
being illegal by all conventions and
treaties. These so-called "depleted"
