02-03-2011 13:44A young Moroccan has set herself on fire after being excluded from a social housing scheme because she was an unmarried mother, a local government official said. Morocco introduced a new family law in 2004 that has won it praise from Western countries for giving women more rights than many Arab countries.
The Nottingham Stop the War Coalition has arranged a Film Screening of John Pilger's latest film, The War You Don't See. It's on Thursday, 31 March at 6:30pm in Nottingham Trent University's Chaucer Lecture Theatre 2, Goldsmith Street (just by the Nottingham Trent University tram stop)
The film will be introduced by Professor Richard Keeble from Lincoln University's School of Journalism, (custodians of the John Pilger archive) and will be followed by a discussion.
The War You Don't See, was shown late last year at The Broadway Cinema. It was also shown on the main ITV1 terrestrial channel (but a little outside prime time, at 10:30pm).
This is your chance to see it at a reasonable time and, most importantly, to discuss it afterwards: the points Pilger makes about the media coverage of the War on Terror are crying out for discussion - and action! The early start (Note: 6:30pm start) is so that we have time for discussion.
Pilger traces the history of ‘embedded' and independent reporting from the carnage of World War 1 to the destruction of Hiroshima, and from the invasion of Vietnam to the current war in Afghanistan. See Rageh Omar, among others, admit that he could have done better!
We are very pleased that Professor Richard Keeble has agreed to introduce the film, and take part in the subsequent discussion. Professor Keeble is the acting head of the University of Lincoln's School of Journalism, and has recently edited a book on peace journalism - for which John Pilger wrote a preface.
Entry is free, but you may be asked to throw money into our collection bucket.

02-03-2011 07:08We denounce with indignation the new escalation in violence and repression against the organised communities of the Other Campaign in Chiapas. During the month of February we have witnessed with alarm assaults and attacks by the state and its paramilitary groups on adherents to the Sixth Declaration of the Lacandon Jungle:
01-03-2011 22:09The near-collapse of the financial system; droughts in the Amazon, floods in Pakistan; a new government in the UK; a violent programme of unprecedented cuts; food prices rising and real incomes eroding; revolutions across the Middle East… This is all very different from 2005 when the Camp for Climate Action first met to spark radical action on the greatest threat to humanity, climate change.
