No Abortion Rights in Ireland

30-01-2007 14:50

Nic pic!
And to think that Tony Bliar had ye all nearly hooked up to
the creationist philosophy his wife and immigration minister
so clearly advocate. Would you want a society where its ok
to rape and impregnate a 14 year old girl and then tell her
that she cannot have an abortion?

Lebanon Crisis Fails Mediation, Plays into Israeli Hands

30-01-2007 12:07

By Nicola Nasser*: The crisis in Lebanon is rapidly accumulating the potential to plunge the country in a second civil war, while Israel is closely watching on the sidelines for the right moment to exploit the ensuing security vulnerability and finish the Lebanese divide off by intervening militarily to conclude what it officially describes as the “inconclusive” war last summer.

30-01-2007 12:01

In recent weeks US government and military officials, aided and abetted by the American media, have stepped up the war of words against Iran. As they did precisely four years ago, in the run-up to the invasion of Iraq, the political and media establishment is attempting to build up a case for military action against a country that has no designs on American territory and represents no threat to the US population.

Cyclist who refused to stay in the gutter wins re-trial

30-01-2007 10:50

Last year cyclist Daniel Cadden was stopped by police for cycling in the road. They said he should have been cycling in the gutter. The case went to trial, and a celebrity loony juge ruled that Daniel should have been cycling on an off-road path, and fined him for obstructing traffic. Daniel recently appealed and won the re-trial.

Speaking outside court, Daniel Cadden said: “I am overjoyed that the ludicrous decision to prosecute me has been overturned. The recognition in this case must go to the real heroes, all those people who have supported it either financially by giving to the Cyclists Defence Fund, by joining CTC or by sending messages of support to myself and my family. Without the support of these people this fight would not have been possible. The overwhelming sum donated to the Cyclists Defence Fund has been testament to the solidarity shown by the cycling community on this issue. This success serves to reaffirm cyclists’ right to decide when to use cycle facilities and when they are inappropriate or dangerous. The first judgement was unreasonable in denying this.”
