12-01-2007 00:47

Is the surge an orchestrated distraction from the real war plan? A good case can be made that it is. The US Congress and media are focused on President Bush’s proposal for an increase of 20,000 US troops in Iraq, while Israel and its American neoconservative allies prepare an assault on Iran.

Tackle the Shackles, Close Guantanamo

11-01-2007 23:12

warming up

Some 70-80 people gathered today in Perry Barr, Birmingham, in front of Hiatt, a UK company that makes shackles and other torture equipment, to 'celebrate' the 5th anniversary of the notorious US-run prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, where 10 British residents and 400 other prisoners are held illegally. The protest was part of a UK-wide day of action and was called by Reprieve (a UK charity that legally represents the British residents held in Guantanamo), Birmingham Guantanamo Campaign, Save Omar Campaign and Amnesty International. Hiatt manufacture the shackles used by the US military in Guantánamo Bay over the last 5 years. The company has never missed a business opportunity in over 200 years, from supplying "nigger collars" to the slave trade to shackles used during torture by various unsavoury regimes (see press release).

11-01-2007 22:51

In an demonstration in Cochabamba, Bolivia, violence has errupted. 4000 demonstrators are surrounded by an armed mob of over 1000 people.
By Cearbhuil Ní Fhionnghusa an eyewitness from Ireland in Cochabamba.
4 people have already been killed in the violent repression of protests. People have come from all over Cochabamba to "Plaza 14 de Septiembre" demanding that the Prefect resigns from office. The Prefect 'Manfres Villas Reyes is a right-wing oligarch who supports multinationals and privatisation. Reyes´ December convoking of an autonomy referendum, to allow the province more independence from Moralez government has enraged Cochabamba's campesinos. He must go', say the protesters.

Since Tuesday, all the main roads are blocked off and no cars, taxis or other vehicles can enter the main square or the surrounding area. Now today all main roads are blocked and nobody can leave or arrive in Cochabamba.

Bush, Somalia and the Future

11-01-2007 14:39

Bush’s impending demise is marked by frantic and desperate attempts to portray the illegal Iraq invasion and subsequent plunder of the precious oil resource, as a war of “noble” intent! Wars based on deception, lies and plunder, with over half a million civilian casualties, would be difficult to record as anything other than what they are – theft, murder and neo-colonial expansionism at any cost. Unfortunately for Bush and his neo-cons, the Truth regarding Iraq is widely known and it is that knowledge which will enter the historical record, not the drivel that issues from the mouths of imbeciles and psychopaths!
