17-03-2010 16:35The crown prosecution admitted defeat, and chose not to take the arguement to the court of appeal.

17-03-2010 13:15On January 11, 2010, we sent out a media alert titled, ‘Were Afghan children executed by US-led forces? And why aren't the media interested?’ http://www.medialens.org/alerts/10/100111_were_afghan_children.php
The alert concerned credible reports that American-led troops had dragged Afghan children from their beds and shot them during a night raid in Kunar province in eastern Afghanistan on December 27 last year. Ten people were killed, including eight schoolboys from one family. We noted that the alleged atrocity had been almost wholly ignored by the corporate media, including the BBC.

16-03-2010 20:59World Day for Lab Animals - Yorkshire Coach
But its precise timing was driven, in large part, by the March 16 anniversary of the poison gas attack on the Iraqi Kurdish town of Halabja. On the fifth and twentieth anniversaries of these two tragic events, a study of the connection between them reveals a deliberate pattern of twisting and fabricating intelligence to meet policy objectives.
16-03-2010 17:05There has been a spirited defence of the building today
The occupiers received a tip off from Trinity rd police station which gave them advance notice that the baliffs and police were preparing to leave.
They arrived at about 10am and initially tried to keep the road open. This proved futile and the road outside has been closed for most of the day.
It took the baliffs at least an hour to gain access to areas of the building. Several people had positioned themselved on scaffolding tripods and ladders to make eviction more difficult.
