Building Bridges in Iraq

02-04-2006 16:02

This is all cut and paste except for the transcribed excerpts – if anyone could type out the whole thing, with an US spellchecker, please do so ( my keyboard is sticky, even this has taken hours) and I'll repost it all on military sites. This is the sort of testimony that could really end this war and nip the next one in the bud.

Crowds gather on the steps of the Metropolitan Cathedral

An amazing 2000 people turned out to let Condoleeza Rice, Jack Straw et al know that Liverpudlians don't want to be nice & hospitable to a high-ranking representative of an imperialist aggressor, responsible for the needless tragic deaths of a hundred thousand Iraqis, two thousand-plus of their own soldiers, and hundreds of British soldiers. Not to mention the continued detention without trial of British men, along with hundreds of others, in Guantanamo Bay, and the deliberate rendition of prisoners for torture in countries with terrible human rights records.

There was a huge amount of energy, good humour and determination in the crowd. Banners made every possible word play on Beatles references and 'Rice'. A sound system blasted out "Give Peace a Chance", Steve Earle "The Revolution Starts Now" and the Star Wars theme. Even after Ms Rice entered, many of the crowd stayed around, and were even joined by latecomers.

Liverpool Unites To 'Unwelcome' Terrorist Mastermind Rice

31-03-2006 19:36

A crowd of at least two thousand Liverpudlians and welcome guests flocked to the Catholic cathedral on Hope Street to protest against neo-Condi's gala gig at the Philharmonic. In a show of awesome potential power, we decked the steps in a sea of defiant humanity. The message was loud and clear: terrorists and torturers are NOT welcome on Merseyside! As one speaker yelled, "We're not havin' it"!

Report & pics from LIPA demo

31-03-2006 14:53

"Hit the road Condi" banner

The big scouse unwelcome for US Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice kicked off with protests around LIPA (Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts). Small groups of protestors roamed the streets handing out flyers for the main demo this evening, while others carried a coffin around. 40-50 protestors gathered at the Hope Street end of the LIPA building for an hour this afternoon, then proceeded round to the car park gate at the back. Numerous passing motorists honked their horns in support. Protestors scattered around the block in futile attempts to discover when & where Condoleeza Rice would be making her entrance.

Police were heavily present, plenty of mobile camera vans, but the protest mood was peaceful and cheerful, the police kept to themselves. Private security guards manned the gates of the LIPA carpark, using scanners on the bags of LIPA students and guests as they were admitted. A banner appeared from one the the LIPA building windows "Don't Fuck the Whore, Fuck the War".

Protestors then marched down into the city centre, noisily drumming up support for the demo later.

Greens fear we maybe witnessing the build up to an attack on Iran. Two B-2 Stealth Bombers and two B-1B multi-role bombers have been spotted at the Fairford RAF base over the last week (i). The base, in rural Gloucestershire, last saw action in 2003 when B-52 bombers flew from there to bomb Iraq. It is the largest USAF bomber base in Europe and the only one with maintenance facilities for the B-2.

Blair = Thatcher = Kissenger = Pol Pot

29-03-2006 19:42

'Blue Peter' are in the news for banning the holders of Blue Peter badges from reduced rate tourist attractions since the badges started going on sale on Ebay.
A moral stance against capitalist exploitation ? If that was true why do they hide their footage of Thatcher endorsing genocide ?
I know this article isn't really news - it also isn't available anywhere else even when it was news, and it is still relevant. Besides, I'd hate for the Socialist Worker to have better information than IM.
