This occurred at exactly the time when the industry delegates were posing for a photo shoot for the launch of a new carbon reduction scheme at European airports which will not include emissions from aircraft.

protest with us please

15-06-2009 22:56

In Ireland we heard 5000 people protested against abuse in privatised institutions.
This is for all those people that went to that protest and also for all the English people who are against childabuse, childsexual exploitation, slavery of children in workingplaces (from 6 years old and they get no school) all these things. If you do not like these things to happen in the Netherlands they do happen all the time. They Dutch private companies take 10000 children per year more than last year and they beat them and kill them and no one gets punished.

A Different Perspective on the Iranian Elections

15-06-2009 19:09

Iran is in a very strategic location for the expansion of US imperialism and control of oil in the Middle East. Military Force by the United States has already been threatened, but has drawbacks. However, the CIA is an expert at fixing elections and stirring up violence and street demonstrations in other countries until an overthrow of that government occurs and one more favorable to US imperialism takes its place.
