Defence of Children International has received previous reports of threatened sexual abuse, usually pronounced during extraction of a confession during interrogation. Threat of such a thing to a child, is a vile act by itself, but now allegedly there has been an actual incident, which took place in Ofer Military Prison just outside of Ramallah.

55 000 Iraqis killed!!!

12-11-2003 12:45

I was wondering why the recent report of '360 000 Iraqi dead in mass grave' story as circulated in our local pig media came about. Never found the answer until now; It has nothing ot do with Prince Charles getting butt fucked instead probably everythign to do with countering a UK based charities report on 55 000 innocent Iraqi civilians killed since March of this year!

Bush-Uribe: Assasssins in Colombia

11-11-2003 20:39

From Bogota to Sarevena: Unity Rises, the People Resist
US military aid to Colombia is threatening more people and more biological diversity than the wars in the Middle East. Iraq is a terrible quagmire of US sin and violence. It is visible and well covered by the media and the world social movements. A second twin-tower of US violence burns in the headwaters of the Amazon and threatens all of the Northern Andes.

Secret NATO Command Bunker - Indymedia Exclusive

11-11-2003 15:13

NATO Command Bunker Under Our Feet: A Bristol Indymedia Exclusive
To most of us it's just another chain link fence off the road from Bath to
Chippenham, but investigative journalist Duncan Campbell believes the
underground Corsham Computer Centre houses a top-secret and top-level NATO
command post. Recent anonymous reports by contract workers who have been
deep underground say a gigantic new U.S. computer system has just been
installed. And the Ministry of Defence press office still have the cheek to
deny that there are underground facilities in Corsham. So are the U.S.
Department of Defence and our MoD hiding from Al Quaeda... or from the
public who pay their wages? Phil Chamberlain takes a peep down this and
