Australian Wheat Board “oil for food” inquiry ends with threats

The affair and the Howard government
While the Australian media and the opposition Labor Party have happily promoted the AWB “scandal”, neither has raised any connection between the affair and the Howard government’s sordid calculations in the lead-up to the Iraq invasion. Their silence again demonstrates the complicity of the entire political and media establishment with the criminal invasion and occupation of Iraq, and the violent drive of the Bush administration to seize control of its resources.

Music of movement to manifest the moment

11-10-2006 14:02

Recently, there has emerged a new social movement which intends to shine some light on the state of the music industry. It examines copyright, publishing rights and exposes those who control such commodities in a society which has become dominated by financial gain. This group of people proclaim the inevitable arrival of a sound which defies the current trend of the pillage of social consciousness in music and concentrates on the origins of music as a unique form of communication, from regions across the globe. Their aim is to expand and elevate social consciousness; describe the terms and conditions of extreme wealth/poverty, highlight all of the injustices which seek to perpetuate this and eventually put an end to it. The acetate republic claim no leadership and the only criteria for membership is that its members 'use' music as opposed to 'abusing' it. The republicans have also caused a stir by adopting a controversial 'copyleft' law -juxtaposing the infamous 'copryright'-, allowing other artists to use original material in live performance without gaining permission.

Nottingham family released from detention and deportation halted after dawn raid in Aspley earlier this week

11-10-2006 11:50

Yarlswood Removal Centre

A family from Aspley, Nottingham have been released from Yarlswood Detention Centre near Bedford after local activists jumped into action following a dawn raid by 12 officers last week. Officers forced entry into the property and arrested the family including 2 children and a baby. The raid happened at around 5.30am on Wednesday 4th October. Children as well as staff at Roslyn Park School in Aspley were shocked by the news. Two of the families children have been at the school for over 5 years.

Within just a couple of days over 150 people signed a petition to stop the families deportation which was due to take place on Saturday 7th at around 5am. The flight was deffered and their deportation halted as the High Court decided a new barrister would be allowed to reassess their case. One of letters of support for the families current appeal states: "I feel strongly that the family should continue to reside in the United Kingdom, and that the children be allowed to continue to go to school".

CPP congratulates DPR-Korea for nuke breakthrough

11-10-2006 10:20

Kim Jong-Il
The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) today congratulated the people and government of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea for successfully and safely carrying out its first-ever nuclear test and hailed the successful test as a “militant assertion of national sovereignty and the right of an independent country to develop its own powerful self-reliant defense capability amidst constant efforts by the US to impose its imperialist hegemony over the world, maintain its monopoly of nuclear weapons along with a few other powerful countries, and subvert the sovereign will of the DPRK.”
