Tamil blockade of Parliament Monday 11th May

12-05-2009 20:41

2.30pm standoff
Over 3000 innocent people were slaughtered in the so called 'safe zone' in the space of 24 hours by air bombardments between Saturday and Sunday, according to the Tamils in Parliament square; by Monday the number of dead had risen to 4000, which would bring the total of deaths up to 12.000 since January.*

Sunday more people began to gather in Parliament Square, and Monday the numbers had swelled and from 9.30 am people began blocking again the roads around Parliament, the only way for them to get attention to the genocide in their homeland and the UK politicians to intervene with the UN.

It is feared that the Sri Lankan government are determined to kill all of the civilians trapped in the so- called ' safe zone' in the Vanni region by the end of the month, more than 150.000 people are living under bombardments and have no way to get out and no access to food or medication, as the Sri Lankan army has sealed off the zone. The few who have managed to escape to government controlled areas have been put in concentration camps by the SLA.

Mayday Mayday Brighton Smash EDO protest

09-05-2009 13:42

Despite the Brighton’s Argus EDF (energy Daily Newspaper of the Year) editor’s, best efforts in outweighing the balance of positive comments from the many residents who don't want an Arms factory anywhere near their town by two to one. All that all that could be offered in it’s pages by way of a reasonable counter argument against the demonstrators was idiotic twaddle like "Why don't they have a bath and get a life", "Why aren’t they recycling their bottles and cans instead of using them as weapons" from the rudely awakened Mr and Mrs Complacent of Brighton
