The latest 'obstacle to peace'

06-11-2007 23:40

The IAEA and its head, Dr. Mohammed ElBaradei, are coming under increasing attack from the governments of the US and Israel. Their 'crime' is to deny that there is any evidence that Iran is developing nuclear weapons. The smears against the IAEA suggest the beginnings of a campaign to undermine it that has strong parallels with the campaign to undermine Hans Blix and UNMOVIC in 2003.

Anti-Trident Protest in Edinburgh looses direction but continues to sing along

05-11-2007 12:20

In a slightly weird, but entertaining, "People and Parliament against Trident" protest over a thousand marched from the Scottish Parliament to Princes Street Gardens. Though it was unclear whom the lovingly hippy-esque, socialising parade addressed its opposition to, it was good fun and meaninglessly co-incided with the "We love the NHS" demonstration in London.

Campaign against the “11th European Police Congress“

05-11-2007 10:52

Campaign against the “11th European Police Congress“, 29th-30th of January 2008 in Berlin

Against a “Global Security Architecture”, for more security-critical behaviour!

In the recent months more information about the investigation methods of security forces has been revealed: data storage, online searches, so-called “textual analysis of political pamphlets“ (used in the paragrpah 129a investigations against anti-G8 activists in Germany) and so forth. Police and intelligence services want to attain unrestricted access to personal data and internet user profiles. Internet providers are now forced to save their data traffic long-term in order to relieve the police databases.

The debate around the introduction of biometrical passports has called into attention the fact that the industry has already developed complex surveillance systems: Iris-scanning, RFID chips (e.g. for supermarkets or on ID cards) or automatic facial recognition. In the context of border control “privileged travellers” are supposed to be able to cross borders “automatically”. The new “European Agency for the operative cooperation in the field of management of external borders” (FRONTEX) is in charge of assessing permanently the risks and dangers at the borders of the EU, and to provide more coordination and control. Technological armament is at the centre of the agency’s policies.
