Weapons of Mass Destruction on the road to Coulport, North of Glasgow !

11-05-2003 22:00

Do you want to be a weapons inspector?

A British military convoy carrying illegal weapons of mass destruction is due to arrive in Scotland on Monday. The heavily guarded convoy of lorries slipped out of a top-secret atomic bomb factory near Reading on Saturday morning and travelling by road is due to arrive at its destination - a nuclear bomb store at Coulport on Loch Long on the Clyde - on Monday afternoon.
Each of the three lorries in the convoy is thought to be carrying two nuclear warheads which each have a destructive capacity eight times the bomb that destroyed Hiroshima.

co-ordination HUB

11-05-2003 21:30

There has been a lot of discussion recently around the idea of some kind of co-ordination mechanism for the extra-parliamentary opposition movements - the Anarchists, anti-Capitalists, progressive non-Party organisations and the grassroots Left (amongst others).

Starbucks sues tiny indigenous-owned coffeeshop for "trademark infringement"

11-05-2003 20:54

Three years ago, Darin Swanson and his partners christened their HaidaBucks cafe. Now the coffee shop in the Queen Charlotte Islands (British Columbia, Canada) is being sued by the Starbucks company, which says the name is too familiar to their own. "I guess they have a problem with the word 'bucks' in our name. They're letting us use the word Haida -- nice of them," Swanson said. Swanson and his partners -- all members of the Haida Nation -- insist they have aboriginal rights to the name and will not be ground down. Swanson had never set foot in a Starbucks coffee shop.

U.S. Colonel Admits 500 Tons of D.U. Were Used in Iraq

11-05-2003 19:52

"If you were watching T.V. and you saw any bombs hit there was an easy way to tell if it was D.U.
If you saw all those little secondary white fires burning in the air in the blast: that was D.U. burning off. D.U. burns with a whitish orange flame, almost looks like a firework shell burning."
