Multinational protest in Brussels against doubled nuclear spending

25-03-2007 09:10

The European Union will spend 2,751 million euros on nuclear activities in its research funding from this year until 2013 although at least two member countries, Germany and Sweden, have pledged to drop nuclear power production and another, Austria, has banned it.

The nuclear spending in the 7th research programme is double the 1,352 million euros in the previous research budget.

Protesters from Germany, The Netherlands and Russia heard at a demonstration in Brussels, the seat of the EU, that the billions would be better spent on climate protection, energy saving programmes and renewable energies.

Mugabe Gets the Milosevic Treatment

24-03-2007 23:58

Britain and the Shatt al-Arab

24-03-2007 22:31

I bought a newspaper tonight with a headline about the fifteen British sailors and marines seized by Irans revolutionary guard. The girl selling it to me pointed to the headline and said 'That's it, we are all going to get nuked'. I pointed out Iran doesn't have nuclear weapons and she responded 'Well, they are starting taking our sailors, we have to nuke them'. I pointed out the captives and their families probably wouldn't agree with her.

Reclaim Our City! - leaflet text for Nottingham's Market Square reopening night

24-03-2007 21:15

NOTTINGHAM - Reclaim Our City!

It’s lovely to have the Market Square finally finished, isn’t it? Now we can start to use it again; as a great hang out, somewhere to sit around with our friends in the sun, the best place to raise awareness about political issues through formal and impromptu demos, listen to free music of all sorts, maybe have a drink, take the piss out of the army recruitment display, shelter from the rain on the Council House steps, but the question is ...

9/11 Lie In Rough Shape

Recent media attacks - by people it has since been exposed are employed by the Bush/PNAC Regime - against American celebrities who support an investigation highlight the fear being created by the failure of the cover-up. Please, keep up the pressure.

The most damning fact is that the War Criminals, Profiteers, and LIARS cannot present any hard evidence to support their own Conspiracy Theory, well over five years after the fact. Even their FBI Director admits there is no evidence linking "al Qaeda" to the attacks.

Eggs Fail To Recognize Omelette's Right To Exist

24-03-2007 14:25

This is how Israel screws the peace process every time. They insist that Israel be given everything it wants FIRST, then they'll talk about maybe sorta kinda someday giving something back in return, or at least talking about it.

The problem is that Israel has already been offered recognition of their right to exist. All they have to do is recognize Palestine's right to exist. And here we come back to the basic problem. Israel wants for itself that which it refuses to give to others.

Further complicating the problem is that Israel still refuses to draw their borders on a map. Palestine cannot agree to recognize Israel because they cannot know what they are recognizing. If Palestine were to agree to recognize Israel there is nothing to stop Israel from declaring that all of what is now the remains of Palestine is already part of Israel, then Israel would have what it wants, ALL the land, recognition, and no Palestine in existence.
