Riots in Switzerland

20-10-2007 08:39

Switzerland, Bern. The conservative and right winged party SVP tried to do a "march to Bern" on october the 6th. This march was planned as a part of the racist and antisocialist election campaign of the SVP. Planned was also a celeberation on the central place of Bern. What u got 2 know: the fascist leader Mussolini and his party once did a "march to rome" and adolf hitler and the NSDAP did a "march to Berlin". So this march of the SVP was a clear provocation.-

Massive riots stopped the march. At the central place of Bern a huge stage, several vans, mics - everything belonging to the SVP - was destroyed by anarchists and communists. The marchers were not able to reach the place though police fought for them against the rioters.

Myanmar's “Saffron Revolution”: The Geopolitics behind the Protest Movement

16-10-2007 19:13

Burma’s “Saffron Revolution,” like the Ukraine “Orange Revolution” or the Georgia “Rose Revolution” and the various Color Revolutions instigated in recent years against strategic states surrounding Russia, is a well-orchestrated exercise in Washington-run regime change, down to the details of “hit-and-run” protests with “swarming” mobs of Buddhists in saffron, internet blogs, mobile SMS links between protest groups, well-organized protest cells which disperse and reform. CNN made the blunder during a September broadcast of mentioning the active presence of the NED behind the protests in Myanmar.
