Has no place in our community
"It promotes acts of violence against members of the community - simple as that, and not only promotes it, glorifies it, encourages, incites people to engage in acts of violence using the riots of last year and as such it has no place in our community."

Australian government steps up threats against PNG, Solomon Islands

16-10-2006 20:59

The South Pacific is no exception
The Australian ruling class has always viewed the strategically significant South Pacific as its own sphere of influence and attempted to ensure its domination of the region’s considerable natural resources. With the support of the British Empire before World War II and US imperialism after 1945, successive Australian governments have manoeuvred to marginalise the influence of rival powers. But inter-imperialist antagonisms have intensified throughout the world—most sharply in the Middle East and Central Asia with the eruption of US militarism—and the South Pacific is no exception.

Media Laying Groundwork For 911-II ?

15-10-2006 20:06

Adam Yahiye Gadahn is getting a LOT of press. Funny that none of these stories about the "American Al Qaeda" never seem to mention his real name, Adam Pearlman, or the fact that his grandfather was on the board of directors of the ADL.

"Gadahn" is being built up in the media for some nefarious purpose.

Solomon Islands PM condemns Australian “re-colonisation”

15-10-2006 04:04

The stakes are immense. Prime Minister Howard announced a major expansion of the military in August, and openly nominated Papua New Guinea, Fiji, and Vanuatu as potential targets for Australian military intervention. The RAMSI operation has been hailed, within Australia and internationally, as a model for intervention in “failed states”. Any setback in the Solomons will be seen as a major blow to the Australian ruling elite’s wider agenda in the Pacific.

Report to UN Disability Convention on use of ASBO's/Injunctions against Disabled

13-10-2006 15:18

There is a continued misue and abuse and 'criminalisation of disabled peoples behaviour' of using ASBO's and Injunctions against all disabled people (both Children and Adults). I myself as a disabled people basic human rights and civil liberities activist and researcher have experienced this here in the East Riding of Yorkshire, UK.

In my voluntary work within the UN Disability Convention I have brought this to the attention (again) of the UN Convention and you can read my emailed report that I have sent today to some of my colleagues and peers within the UN Disability Convention and Disabled People's Movement and also Anne McGuire, Minister for Disabled People
