Totalitarian Arabic press better than UK corporate press

10-08-2006 18:49

During the Iraq war, I went to a BBC meeting, mostly to complain about the bias during the so-called glory days of Greg Dyke. Oddly enough, Iranian and even Saudi Arabian journalists who were there said, we thought our press was limited but you are into self-censorship and described how ignorant and misrepresentative news stories were. Many will know about D-notices and such as the like... But now we have a terrorist threat for which these culprits are not guilty, no evidence, Blair on holiday

Join the Dots: the 'War on Terror' and the War on Freedom

10-08-2006 17:54

This afternoon, police have announced that are searching homes and businesses across the UK in connection with a plot to blow up planes from the UK to US. This appears to have been timed to coincide with the Home Secretary's demand that we "modify some of our freedoms". Or maybe Reid's speech was timed to coincide with the police announcement. Either way, the intention is the same - to attack the working class.

Attack foiled - how long can this go on?

10-08-2006 14:33

I'm not saying I don't believe they found anything or had suspicions because it is an accusation I would not disagree with but I do not have the information to make. These sort of things will become a more regular occurance as the west fights its never-ending 'war on terror'.

Sheffield Anti-War Demo - Sat Aug 19th

10-08-2006 11:33

Following on from Saturday's 100,000+ demonstration, last nights Sheffield StWC
organising meeting laid down a number of plans and activities for the coming
period, which I will set out below in chronological order.
Given what is almost universally seen as a murdeous assault by Israel on Lebanon
and indeed Palestine, and the the continued bloody occupation of Afghanistan
and Iraq, last night we quite rightly decided to step up the action and pile on
the pressure on Bush, Blair, Olmert and their warmongering cohorts to stop the
slaughter and stop it now.

Hackney Critical Mass (Lebanon Action)

10-08-2006 02:47

Sick of constant wars being fought over greed, racism and control for the world's dwindling natural resources? Disgusted that the government in this country sits back while a murderous, oppressive state brutally attacks another country, just because the UK government wants to keep its ally in an area it's helping rip apart to guarantee the supply of the last few drops of oil?

Highlighting the meaning of “Lanterns on the Lake”, Swindon, 9th Aug 2006

09-08-2006 23:54

Follow the signs...
Peace campaigners in Swindon were in attendance at the annual “Lanterns on the Lake” event at Coate Water, to highlight the reason for the event – the anniversary of the world’s first, and hopefully last, act of nuclear warfare, in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and also to publicise the protest at Brize Norton this coming Saturday. Things got a bit heated when an Israeli man and his wife took exception to the leaflets being handed out, but fortunately it ended with handshakes and good wishes.
