With Love
Wednesday evening at 9:00. BBC2 is to broadcast the first episode of a three-part documentary series called
The Power of Nightmares: The Rise of the Politics of Fear. This television channel is off limits to most of the world. But i have also heard that this really should be a program that should be payed attention to.
(this coming from someone who do not own a tv) My "request" is, if anyone have the equipment to record this program and make it available for download online, i would very greatful. I am a part of a larger network that "distributes", profitfree ofcause, information and documentaries that attempts to change the minds of the passive television consumers. Most of the network exists outside of the UK, which means we dont have a chance to "get" this tv program. Please exuse my english. it is not my "main" language.. I hope someone can help me... if you can. please write me at:

The police are under resourced

17-10-2004 14:15

This many cops...
There are at this moment about 75 police at King's Cross surrounding about 15 peaceful protestors who got off the train and were trying to join the main demo today. Makes a bit of a mockery about their usual claim of always being under resourced.

Open Letter to my Grandfather

17-10-2004 06:50

by James F. Harrington - Socialist Workers Party Thursday

How Erin's Son's Have Been Used By the Capitalists

Open letter to my grandfather, Austin A. O’Malley, who I never really got to know, as he died when I was only four years old. He came over to the United States from his native country, Ireland around 1889, as a little boy of eleven years.

Like many other Irishmen from Louisburg, County Mayo, he settled in Clinton, Massachusetts.
I know that he worked there for a baker for awhile untill the Spanish American War broke out.

I also know that he was in and out of the Veteran’s Hospital all through his life. I also know that he liked to drink at bars in South Boston, sometimes with his dog beside him.
