rampART Chechnya film night - tonight

23-02-2006 13:00

Sixty two years ago, on 23 February 1944, Stalin ordered the forcible deportation of the Chechen, Ingush and other nations of the North Caucasus to Central Asia. The people who were were transported with little or no provision in cattle trucks and more than half died in transit or in massacres committed by Soviet troops. Those who survived the journey were left facing starvation and disease in the harsh winters of Siberia and Central Asia. In 2004 the European Parliament passed a motion formally recognising this tragedy as a genocide.

The Real Face Of Terrorists- taking their mask off

23-02-2006 05:29

I found this show right on target, laying out the source of the endless war we find ourselves in filled with a lot of insight to how it is maintained, the manufacture of dissent, the anti-WTO movement and NGOs. Kosovo, war and globalization, financial warefare, the support of Islamic insurgencies and terror networks, the Taliban and drug trade in Afghanistan, the War on Terrorism to justify nuclear war. bellow is a link to a audio stream of the information.

2nd Renaissance -9

Kinship mechanisms will help people cope
The Old World Order will not do anything to smooth the path to a Level 4 Civilization, and a better world. On the contrary, they will do whatever they can to make it difficult. The police, the military, the media, the financial system, the rule of law, and all the mechanisms of civil control and surveillance will be mobilised in defence of the status quo. But, once they understand their options, the people of the world will not engage in a battle with the forces of the OWO. They will simply abandon the old way of living under national rule, for a better, freer, life in new tribal societies. Kinship mechanisms will help people cope with the pressures of official opposition to radical changes that will finally enable them to escape the invisible prison that the OWO had fashioned around them.

Command's Responsibility - Detainee deaths in US custody

22-02-2006 16:33

"An American soldier told us of our father's death. He said: "Your father died during the interrogation." So we thought maybe it was high blood pressure under personal stress. This would happen in American detention centers. People would die of high blood pressure. But afterwards the people who were imprisoned, detained with him said "No. They would torture him and they assigened American soldiers to him especially for the torture. He died during the torture."...Honestly, my mother, after the case, she entered a state we can say a coma or like a coma. She withdrew from life." -Hossam Mowoush

Enabling Tyranny: On the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill

22-02-2006 13:06

Don’t feel ashamed if you’ve never heard of the ‘Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill’ currently traversing the Commons. A newspaper database search reveals only 46 mentions of the Bill’s title for the past twelve months – several of which were in such popular journals as Cabinet Maker and Building Design. None of these 46 mentions, incidentally, is earlier than January of this year. The Bill was formerly known as the ‘Bill for Better Regulation’, the title under which it was announced in the Queen’s Speech of May 2005 (there are four additional mentions under this title). It is only in the last few weeks that the bill has had even scant attention in the press. This is something of a shame since, arguably, the Bill is the first step to abolishing the last remnants of parliamentary democracy in Great Britain.
