Major Corruption

17-12-2007 15:32

John Major has protested that the Tories were not corrupt in the 80s and 90s. These claims will remain unconvincing unless they answer two questions. First, why did they give an apparently unjustifiable £300 million contract to one of the two companies involved in the arms deal illegally linked to the Pergau Dam? Secondly, who gave the tens of millions of pounds needed to fund the Tory party in that period.

UK physicians respond to The Guardian's disinformation on Dr David Kelly's death

17-12-2007 10:36

The importance of a Government cover-up (in the context of the investigation of the suspicious death of the world expert on biological and chemical weapons who, at the time of his death, was perceived to be blowing the whistle on the Government which had taken the country to illegal war on a pack of lies) cannot be over-emphasised. Richard Norton-Taylor (and others in his position) should be pressing for a proper investigation of Kelly's death, ie a proper inquest, rather than wasting his time attempting to rubbish Norman Baker's book, while claiming the moral high ground. Otherwise, there is a risk that he and other apparent apologists for the dreadful Blair and Brown governments are seen in the future as the shameless enablers that perhaps they are.

80,000 march against US airbase construction at Dal Molin, Italy

16-12-2007 23:20

One of the most important movements right now in Italy is the inspiring coalition to prevent the US from building a military base at Dal Molin, Vicenza in Northern Italy. On Saturday 15th December, an estimated 80,000 people marched in cold weather to say No to the base. This was virtually ignored in the mainstream Italian press and TV. Prodi's "centre left" government, supported by parties that say they are against the war, said "The base will be approved". It's a national issue!

Re-affirming Human Rights and the Filipino People' Dignity

13-12-2007 18:42

Marie Hilao Enriquez, with Carol Araullo, at The Hague, Netherlands, March 2007
Although Human Rights Day is celebrated only once a year, all Filipinos who love freedom and justice--as well as all citizens of countries that signed the United Nations Charter--should practise and apply to their everyday lives the principles embodied in the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights, a document which is an integral part of international law and also of the constitutions of nation-states who are members of the UN. The following article is a tribute to all activists involved in the promotion of human rights, in particular to Filipino activists in KARAPATAN, the Filipino human rights monitoring organization, to its staff and secretary-general, Marie Hilao Enriquez.

US and Her Stooges are the Main Human Rights Violators In Afghanistan

13-12-2007 15:24

The US and her allies tried to legitimize their military occupation of Afghanistan under the banner of “bringing freedom and democracy for Afghan people”. But as we have experienced in the past three decades, in regard to the fate of our people, the US government first of all considers her own political and economic interests and has empowered and equipped the most traitorous, anti-democratic, misogynist and corrupt fundamentalist gangs in Afghanistan.
