Spin and rumours at the G8

23-06-2007 14:10

With proper wars it is a well-known occurrence for one side's propaganda department to try and spread the most horrific stories about the other party. The opposition are depicted as brutal barbarians who ravage children and should be opposed at all cost. In military jargon this is known as 'psyops'. During the protests against the G8 in Heiligendamm there were clear indications of a similar strategy. In this case the infamous ''black block'' played the part of the barbarians. This is a biased summary of the misinformation and its effect.

Apologies, it seems, are due to the "tinfoil hat" brigade.

Lines of Hunger.... East London's answer to Glastonbury 1 O'Clock Sat 23 June07

23-06-2007 10:23

Glastonbury yesterday did not mark a world wide movement for ending poverty. Yet poverty was the theme of the speech given on the same day in the US by John Edwards, one of the Democratic contenders for the office of president there. And today's print edition of the Independent [London UK] is leading with the theme of food scarcity across the globe. With rising population numbers globally and massive immigration of the poverty-affected people towards the 'West and North', poverty is the bigger challenge than any other today...So what is going on in Brick Lane London E1 about it today?

Mammoth electoral fraud in Philippines elections: Padding and shaving

23-06-2007 08:07

Philippine election
Nearly three weeks after election day, there are still no definitive results for the Philippine elections to the Senate and House of Representatives. Counting is still continuing and in a number of provinces it has not even begun. This has nothing to do with inefficiency and everything to do with ballot-rigging. The Philippines is one of the most corrupt ‘democracies’ in the world.

Vigil, party and sleep-out in solidarity with refugees in Birmingham

23-06-2007 00:24

reading out the names and stories of the dead
As part of Refugee Week, the Birmingham Anti-Racist Campaign (ARC) organised a candlelit vigil today to remember asylum seekers who took their own lives and protest against the government's racist policies. After reading out the 40+ victims' sad stories and some short speeches, there was some nice African, Kurdish and Iranian live music. Food Not Bombs also served some nice food. Many people then stayed over for the annual Refugee Sleep-out to highlight the problem of destitution that many asylum seekers suffer from. The event was sponsored by Celebrating Sanctuary and supported by many groups and organisations, including the National Coalition of Anti-Deportation Campaigns and Birmingham NoBorders.
