Cows in slaughterhouses are forklifted into walls
A barking dog in a room full of mirrors sees only enemies,
said Sathya Narayana... the FBI's leadership with its pawn judges
and prosecutors projects violence
onto gentle people who seek to make the world
safe for animals through education, lawsuits, and
other conscience motivated nonviolence.

Last Chance to Shut the Door on GM Human Beings,ACT NOW!

06-05-2008 15:31

In just a few weeks British MPs will decide whether to allow scientists to start research on the ultimate step in genetic engineering: the creation of GM ‘designer’ human beings. In the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill, now going through Parliament, the Government wants to allow the creation of GM human embryos, as the first step towards developing "safe" technology for creating GM babies. The creation of GM babies is not just a hypothetical scenario: leading British scientists, such as Robert Winston and Ian Wilmut, have already patented techniques for doing this, including patenting human semen and embryos.

If you care about the impact of GM on food and the environment it makes no sense to be quiet about this.

NHS 'Overseas Patients' debt collector wanted at Haywards Heath

03-05-2008 13:09

When looking for jobs on the NHS jobs website, ( I found this advert for an 'Overseas Patients Co-ordinator', ie. a debt- collector for people deemed ineligible for treatment by the NHS. By this read 'asylum seekers, undocumented migrants' etc. The job description makes a shocking read. I'm sure most of this is in contravention with the Professional bodies Codes of conduct (General Medical Council, Nursing and Midwifery Council). People might want to give Tina Niblett (Private and Overseas Patients Manager For Haywards Heath Hospital) a call on 01273 696955 extension 7030 or email- or have a demonstration if they can find out when interviews are held...
