Smash EDO - Brighton Target Barclays launch Demo Pics

28-11-2009 21:49

On the 28th a large demonstration was held in Brighton outside the bank's North Street branch, a letter was handed in to the branch manager, thousands of leaflets were given out and two Barclays customers, after reading the leaflet, told picketers that they would close their accounts. A Barclays spokesperson, speaking to the Brighton Argus, said “Barclays Group provides financial services to the defence sector within a specific policy framework."

Redecorating Barclays' brand new shop front
Activists held a demonstration outside the brand new branch of Barclays Bank in Hope Street, Wrexham this morning in solidarity with Smash EDO's Target Barclays Campaign. Barclays have located their shiny new 'shop front' branch, at a cost of more than £1 million, in a pedestrianised area with some very useful railings right in front of the doorway, just perfect for mounting a visual display to make the point about Barclays' links with the global arms trade.

U.S. Still Plans Assault on Latin America. Will We Stop this Madness?

28-11-2009 15:29

"In an explicit attempt to hide Washington’s military objectives in South America, a U.S. Air Force document submitted to Congress in May 2009 that provoked deep concerns in the region has been modified and re-published on November 16, 2009. The official U.S. Air Force document, revealed and denounced by this author on November 4th, explained the justification for a $46 million request to improve the military installations in one of the seven bases Washington will occupy under the military accord signed on October 30th between Colombia and the United States. The modified document has eliminated all mention of war and military operations in the region, as well as offensive language directed at Colombia’s neighbors, Venezuela and Ecuador."

The Iraq War ‘Inquiry’: ‘Revelations’? What revelations?

27-11-2009 22:17

I read with amazement the ‘revelations’ concerning war criminal Tony Blair’s visit to Camp Crawford in March 2002 where Bush/Blair decided that ‘regime change’ was the order of the day. But there’s nothing new about these ‘revelations’, indeed I and many others reported this meeting literally years ago.

The Value of Fear

25-11-2009 10:09

"We do not negotiate with terrorists". The mantra has long been a cherished value of western democracies. In reality all the major powers have at some stage been lowered to discussions with militants, from Northern Ireland to Iraq. Now Israel seems on the verge of granting their fiercest enemies of Hamas a major coup with the mooted released of up to 1,000 prisoners. What message does this send?

Global warfare: US military operations in all major regions of the World

22-11-2009 15:21

US military presence per country (2009) [map by David Vine]
Not only does one country account for the overwhelming plurality of world military expenditures, but that nation also has troops and bases on all six habitable continents (as well as a 54-year military mission in Antarctica, Operation Deep Freeze) and eleven aircraft carrier strike groups and six navy fleets that roam the world's oceans and seas at will. It is also expanding a global interceptor missile system on land, on sea, in the air and into space that will leave it invulnerable to retaliation.
