16-08-2006 09:11Since August 10, when British authorities arrested two dozen individuals in connection with an alleged plot to blow up a number of airplanes over the Atlantic Ocean, the American mass media has worked ceaselessly to create a climate of fear.
For the first several days after the news of the alleged plot broke, American news programs were virtually unwatchable. The lurid logos and wild, unsubstantiated allegations made a mockery of claims that the networks and cable channels are in the business of “news-gathering.”

15-08-2006 14:34A few months ago I was taking the bus into town. An old man in front of me nudged his bored wife and pointed to some workmen building some new flats. “The government are giving them to those bloody asylum seekers” he told her. A rumour or even lie had been passed on as truth, presumably because the man himself felt hard done by. I cringed, but it seemed easiest to keep silent, even though a sign clearly said the flats were for students. Today, I present the truth as told by some asylum seekers in Liverpool, to the one decent Daily Post/Liverpool Echo reporter. It is far, far worse than that old man could probably imagine. No-one should be illegal, and good housing should be available for everyone, wherever they come from.

15-08-2006 12:19David Hicks, good, bad or just plain stupid remains an Australian son. Democratic nations have a responsibility to protect their citizens in times of need; a number of democratic nations have already successfully repatriated their citizens from the illegal torture centre of Guantanamo Bay; however, after a period of four years the Howard government has been unable or unwilling to effect the repatriation of David Hicks. If a truly strong case against Hicks existed it surely would have been prosecuted to the full advantage of the terrorist scare campaign that Bush constantly wages on the American people. The fact that the USA is loath to give Hicks a fair and open trial, and in view of the obvious manipulative tactics utilised by corrupt U.S. ‘legal’ officers to delay proceedings, it would appear that the grounds upon which the U.S. military have based their ‘case’ are extremely flimsy and/or could attract litigation for illegal detention, torture and human rights abuses!
