Manchester Pride crowd figures -- organisers exaggerate by at least 500%

04-02-2007 02:38

The Manchester Pride organisers claim that 250,000 people watch the Saturday parade and similar figures have regularly appeared in the media over the years.

It seems that no one has ever thought about that figure. If you look at the facts, a crowd of that size is a physical impossibility on such a short route and on such relatively narrow city streets.

No Abortion Rights in Ireland

30-01-2007 14:50

Nic pic!
And to think that Tony Bliar had ye all nearly hooked up to
the creationist philosophy his wife and immigration minister
so clearly advocate. Would you want a society where its ok
to rape and impregnate a 14 year old girl and then tell her
that she cannot have an abortion?

No Indymedia in Ireland- Rights Referendum Upcoming

17-01-2007 10:58

No IMC- In Ireland
It's election time in Ireland and with that we get a 'Rights Referendum'
which is a unique little piece of political obfuscation which creates
the necessary division between left/right- traditional/liberal to advance
yet again the cause of mediocre politics and refusal to look at issues
such as climate change and environment.It's all sponsored by the Catholic Church.

Christian lunatics hold homophobic rally outside parliament.

10-01-2007 22:16

See above for caption...
“Let him without sin cast the first stone” said Jesus to the unruly mob to quell their bloodlust and stop them from murdering an innocent woman. Unfortunately this part of the Bible seems to have been misplaced by the hypocrites standing outside Parliament on Tuesday night. The reason for this thousand strong demo? The House of Lords are debating a law that will give gay people the same rights as everyone else. This it seems is too much for Britain’s fast growing Christian Right. The law will make it illegal (for example) to refuse a hotel room to a gay couple. Or to refuse a job interview to a gay man or woman based on their sexuality. Many years ago a similar law was introduced to stop black people being discriminated against. This has clearly been forgotten by half the nutters present tonight.
