27-05-2008 17:01Not sure how many times he should have to tell us what we already know.
27-05-2008 13:09I have just finished reading INTERPOL's report on the computers that the government of Colombia says it found in an encampment of the FARC-EP on March 1. Reading the report I am once again fascinated with what experts can do with computers. But I am shocked that the world's best known detective agency cannot add three plus three.

The Forward Intelligence Teams seem to really love anti arms trade campaigners. Having already made their presence felt through years of DSEi protests, they have also long been a fixture at EDO demos. More recently, they have been travelling further afield, and have been spotted at St Athans demos in Wales, and the Heckler and Koch protests in Nottingham.

26-05-2008 19:29I've begun to notice a particular pattern of media coverage and/or distortion of issues supported by 'the West', and nowhere is this more apparent than on the issue of Lebanon.
25-05-2008 18:11Timoleón Jiménez has appeared in a video passed to TeleSUR lamenting the passing of the founder of FARC whose death began to be reported yesterday. http://www.indymedia.org.uk/en/2008/05/399496.html He died of a heart attack.
They have also named the new leader of the paramilitary organisation. Thus the new name and personality who we may consider dealing with all the baggage of FARC. Its guerilla army, its hostages, its loyal population, its political hinterland who eschew armed struggle yet are persecuted, its role in the coca production and supply of cocaine from Colombia which is not already in the hands of the 3 cartels linked to the far right terrorists in the Colombian state. The new leader Guillermo León Sánez, alias Alfonso Cano is thus one of the people who decides how much rainforest should be cleared to grow coca instead of making oxygen. Coz as all you know well, coca only grows on the edge of rainforest for a maximum of two years, being a hungry little plant it needs nutrients when farmed which can only come from burning off jungle.
A short profile of this new man who shall play a small role in what goes up your nose. Be it oxygen or a 17% pure alkaloid.

25-05-2008 11:04The anarchist film collective 'a-films' has just published another short film from North Lebanon. It documents many racist, sexist, humiliating and insulting graffiti that Lebanese soldiers had written on the walls of the houses in the destroyed Palestinian refugee camp of Nahr al-Bared.
25-05-2008 09:58The European Parliament has passed its fourth and most far-reaching resolution yet against the use of uranium weapons. MEPs have called for an EU and NATO-wide moratorium and global ban.
24-05-2008 04:12Curioser and curiouser.
24-05-2008 01:02Why are these whack-jobs still able to make such decisions, when we ALL know who poses the real threat?
24-05-2008 00:59Or, if they were from any other country, "TERRORISTS" ...
This comes only days after Iran announced it had uncovered one of the CIA rings operating in Iran. For more, see Seymour Hersh's excellent (and virtually ignored) work on the Covert Operations being carried out in Iran by the US from Afghanistan.
