More terror hype!
So any country in the world can ask our country to raid someone, some group or oganisation when they have become suspicious that someone may be beyond their own reach or when there needs to be more terror hype in this country? What is this cross-country scapegoating?

ACADP calls on every decent human being that respects and values
Singapore executes more people per capita than any other country in the world. The sham-democracy island of 4 million, has executed more than 420 people since 1991. Anyone caught with 15 grams or more of heroin faces a mandatory death sentence. Alas, the high rate of executions for drug-traffickers has not reduced drug-related crimes in Singapore.

Justice for Jhonny Silva! Vigil Outside Colombian Embassy, Tues (22nd) from 3pm

20-11-2005 02:36

Jhonny Silva
On 22nd September 2005, 21-year-old chemistry student Jhonny Silva was shot dead by Colombian police, who had illegally entered the campus of Valle University in Southwest Colombia after a student protest. Jhonny, who suffered from polio and so was unable to run when the police began firing live ammunition at students, was shot in the neck at point blank range.

A British delegation of students and academics was present at the student protest and witnessed the violent police methods. The members of the delegation have committed themselves to working with students and staff at Valle University to campaign for Jhonny's killers to be brought to justice. The Colombian state has an extremely poor record of investigating and prosecuting the crimes of the public forces and paramilitaries.
