Calling all individuals, clowns, groups, journalists, first aiders, legal support, cameras & filmmakers: come along and show your disgust at 'celebrating' a nation built on war, terror and ethnic cleansing. Let's see the thousands who supported the people of Tibet also show their solidarity with the people of Palestine. End all occupations!
19-05-2008 21:01Nelly Avila Moreno alias "Karina" [a.k.a. 'Janet Mosquera Renteria', 'Rocío Arias' aged 47, 1.60 metres tall and 85kg weight], has been one of the most wanted women on this planet this century. In a different sort of most wanted woman on the planet way to Kate Moss [a.ka. as Kate, aged 34, height 5'6" - 5'7", weight 105lbs]. And the difference is not merely one of metric versus imperial measurements. Whatever you can say about Kate you're not going to suggest she led brigade 47 of the FARC operating in western Colombia credited with narcotraffic operations in Samaná and Pensilvania reliant on plantations of 3,500 hectares. Coz you know you'd get a writ for libel for that. Nor was Kate ever worth 650 million US dollars in reward bounty.

civilization, a catch-all category of assaults on the weak. Under the
anti-terror banner, Washington grinds Somalia into the sand, through hi-tech
weaponry and the deployment of Ethiopian surrogates. No more rationale is
offered for murderous aggression in the Horn of Africa than the presence of
people the U.S. calls "Islamists" - a label designed to excuse any and all
American crimes against Muslims. "More than 600,000 Somalis have fled from
their homes and at least 6,000 are dead." The savaging of Somalia is
nonpartisan - Democrats are as bloody-handed as Republicans. "It takes
foolish optimism to think that the willing accomplices to crime will change
their ways when Bush is gone."

18-05-2008 09:14The delegates to the Church of Scotland's general assembly gathered on 15 May were urged to support a resolution that calls on Britain and the United States to take no further action that could lead to an invasion of Iran.

17-05-2008 17:37The US terror war is a plan of organized deception that is focused more upon the American people and our democratic allies than it is upon any enemy nation. The cycle of attacks and retribution is part of a psy-ops campaign of fear that is meant to frighten the people into complying with government demands. Everywhere, the American message is the same: “Join us in our crimes against humanity, or perish in our glorious shock and awe.”

15-05-2008 09:29Obama managed to inject pro-Israel, anti-"radical Islam" remarks into his speech on race relations in the U.S. He speaks of a history of "tensions" between African Americans and Jewish Americans, but fails to trace these conflicts to Israel's support for apartheid South Africa.
14-05-2008 16:31In a sharp reversal of its longstanding accusations against Iran arming militants in Iraq , the US military has made an unprecedented albeit quiet confession: the weapons they had recently found in Iraq were not made in Iran at all.
