The Corporate Academy and the George Fox 6

18-09-2005 16:36

On Monday 26th September, the trial of the George Fox 6 commences at Lancaster Magistrates Court. Six student activists face charges in a three day arising out of an action that took place at Lancaster University in September 2004 where protestors had gone into the George Fox building at the university to hand out leaflets and talk to people at the "Corporate Venturing" Conference - a networking meeting for multinational corporations. Speakers at the conference were drawn from controversial arms manufacturer BAE Systems, Shell and other companies the six say have 'long histories of human rights abuses and environmental destruction'. Police attended and told the protestors they were doing nothing wrong, but some months later they received summonses through the post. The defendants are seeking support at the trial.

Reflections on the London terroristic attacks and their aftermath

18-09-2005 07:17

I'll show in my article, that in contrary to the declarations of the British prime-minister Blair and other Westerm politicians, there are evident causes for the London terrorist attacks dd 7-7. Further I also reflect on the aftermath of the attacks, especially regarding the newly proposed British terrorist-laws and the killing of the Brasilian de Menezes by the British policy.
I'll end with a remembreance poem of Eddie Woods concerning Jean de Menezes.

John H.o.W.A.R.d line roars at Fascism Week

Scott Parkin fined for illegal and degrading detention
Embellishments of all kinds -- detention, deportation, fines -- were evident on the dogwalks this week, as were masculine details such as ASIO, security risk, threats and new anti-liberty laws. Even those signs came off more like criminogenic intellectual slavery and less harsh than the nasty, over-the -top feelings of many suspected terrorists detained last season. That's a joke son!

Arms Dealer Sex Toy Party

17-09-2005 11:23

Taking one look at the arms industry you will find a lot of middle aged men, surrounding themselves with large phallic objects and imagery, rockets, bombs, cannons, submarines etc. It seems the men who conduct the business of death, must rather be compensating for a "lack of weapons capability" elsewhere.
