Sunday Times reports Faslane base may 'close' on G8 Demo Day + G8A Int Mtg

17-04-2005 16:46

Sunday times reports many staff may be given the day off. Not that surprising - on most faslane submarine base big blockade days which have happened in the past, many staff are given the day off, essential staff come in early to beat the blockades and some come by boat.

The faslance base 'source' is quoted as saying "We’re used to this sort of thing but the people planning it are not the ordinary peaceful protesters" - maybe they should tell Trident Ploughshares, CND and Scottish CND who are, as usual, planning the blockade!

Fire Bombs in Iraq:Napalm By Any Other Name

15-04-2005 08:50

This briefing examines the continuing use of incendiary weapons
("napalm") by the US military in Iraq. While the UK government has

such weapons where they may cause harm to civilians. In Iraq, UK forces
are part of a coalition which does not adhere to internationally agreed
standards of warfare.
