Yesterday pretty pink pieces of paper rained from the clear blue sky above Nablus and the refugee camps of Balata and Askar. Pink leaflets delivered by an Apache. This is how the Israeli Occupation Forces communicate with the occupied – at a distance, impersonal and untouchable.
05-09-2003 10:40A group fo activist from chicago-based long-term anti-sanctions and Iraqi solidarity group Voices in the Wilderness managed to enter and disrupt the press conference of the Supreme Commander of the coalition Occupation Forces in Iraq. Apologies for the lateness of this story! Baghdad blackouts, busy days and all-night curfew are responsible...A video clip is on its' way.
04-09-2003 19:51Executive order 13315, which Bush signed on 8/28/03, was published in the Federal Register on 9/3/03. It expands upon executive order 13303, and appears to be an asset grab under the guise of funding the Iraqi reconstruction, placing Iraq's state assets under control of the U.S. Treasury: in effect, the official looting of Iraq.

02-09-2003 01:38Nobel Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi of Burma is on hunger strike; she has been in the cruel prisons of the Burmese military since May 30, 2003. All the evil generals in Burma, the brutes are attacking her and as we know well that she got a few stitches in her head hit and beaten by the hired thugs of a Burmese general. Please let us unite to save her or get her out of the danger zone; I believe that was what Dr.Michael Aris, the Englishman husband of Daw Suu Kyi would say in this battle of good and evil in a midnight of the blemished and broken Burmese soul.
