The Politics of Fear & Neglect
The editorial condemned “Prime Minister John Howard’s indifference to the academic medical community and his profound intolerance to those less secure than himself and his administration”.

Fake Terror Trial: Jose Padilla and the Zucchini Prosecution

26-04-2007 22:12

The case against Jose Padilla would be funny if a man’s life hadn’t been ruined in the process---but it has. The Bush administration has leapt from one absurd accusation to the next completely undisturbed by the glaring inconsistencies of their case. The prosecution’s objective is the same now as it was 5 years ago when the Chicago gang-banger was first arrested at O’ Hare Airport as an alleged “dirty bomber”, that is, keep Padilla behind bars for the rest of his life.

Covert Government Investigations, using community policing. AKA Gang Stalking.

26-04-2007 20:40

There are people in large metropolitan cities being stalked, harassed, mobbed, and followd around and many do not know why. Many are having to change jobs, move constantly, have their lives disrupted and they can't find help or assistance for what is happening to them. Many are stumbling in the dark and being mislead by those around them. I hope to the best of my ability to shed a little bit more light on what is happening and help others better start to find help and assistance.

Baltasar Garzón, un clavo ardiendo

26-04-2007 10:43

El pasado 10 de abril el canal 2 de la TVE emitió el documental "El alma de los verdugos" codirigido y copresentado por el Juez de la Audiencia Nacional española Baltasar Garzón. Sin embargo, dudamos, y así lo hacemos público, que la persona más adecuada para vehiculizar esta denuncia sea el juez Baltasar Garzón, quien fue presentado a sí mismo como una autoridad en materia de perseguir a torturadores.

Baghdad : This Wall is their Grave - Stop the walls; stop the occupation!

25-04-2007 21:46

Plans for Al-Adhamiyah confirm that the US occupation and its puppets in Iraq can build nothing but open-air prisons. It will fail

No military strategy can impose on the Iraqi people an occupation it overwhelmingly refuses. Its resistance is national and continues

What kind of government walls-in its own people? One desperate and illegitimate, tied to the fate of a defeated occupation

25-04-2007 08:41

The US military’s plan to seal off an entire suburb of Baghdad behind a three-metre high concrete wall has produced widespread opposition among Iraqis of all religious and ethnic backgrounds. Several thousand residents of Sunni-populated Adhamiyah demonstrated against the wall on Monday behind banners declaring “No Shiite. No Sunni. Islamic Unity” and “No to the sectarian barrier”.

Fascist America, in 10 easy steps

24-04-2007 23:29

It's not fascism when we do it...
On the internet people have been pointing out that the USA (and the UK not that far behind) is sliding into fascism, but this isn't something that the mainstream media will touch, after all they are a part of the problem. The following article by Naomi Wolf, published in the Guardian today is an exception to this and although reposts from the mainstream are rightly frowned upon here this article does deserve being an exception to the rule.
