(corrected) Christian-based direct action gathering, Leeds, 28th-30th July

07-07-2006 13:35


Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming upon you. Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes. Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days. Look! The wages you failed to pay the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter. You have condemned and murdered innocent men, who were not opposing you. (James 5:1-6)

Annual Independence FROM America demonstration at NSA Menwith Hill

07-07-2006 13:19

Review of Milan Rai's "7/7" (London Bombings)

07-07-2006 06:35

Below is a book review of Milan Rai's new book, "7/7: The London Bombings, Islam and the Iraq War". The article juxtaposes 7/7 with 9/11, in part because I am an American writer-journalist living in England, but mostly because both Americans and Britons are demanding answers to legitimate, unanswered questions which their governments have tried to obscure.

The piece is available with hypertext links via my blog:
