Queen’s Speech signals attack on civil liberties

14-11-2007 20:39

When Gordon Brown became Prime Minister five months ago, he sought to distance himself from the unpopularity of his predecessor Tony Blair by pledging “a new kind of politics.” On counter-terrorism legislation, he talked of a consultation period of “good will” rather than an immediate rush to pursue Blair’s repressive legislative agenda. Sections of the liberal establishment gave credence to Brown’s claims that he would “strengthen our liberties,” even though Home Secretary Jacqui Smith made it clear that new anti-terror legislation would be presented later in the year.

Northern HLS Collaborators - All Listed Here!

13-11-2007 19:19

Every single person has a part to play in closing down Huntingdon Life Sciences. Going on a march or two isn't going to stop the animal abuse. Listed below are the Northern companies dealing with HLS. Politelty contact them and demonstrate outside your local sites.

Form a local SHAC division and help bring attention to HLS in your area.

Hand out leaflets in the high street on a saturday afternoon and make everybody aware of Huntingdon and that companies such as GlaxoSmithKline, whomake products they may buy including Lucozade and Ribena, are involved in killing animals every single day inside HLS. As HLS's biggest client, GSK fund an experiment inside the lab 365 days a year - it only makes you wonder how many animals die for this sick company.

During weekdays and Saturday mornings hold demo's outside companies in your area propping up HLS and increase awareness about the 500 animals who die every day.

As Roche, an ex-HLS client and one of the largest pharmaceutical firms in the world, said - It's not a question of if Huntingdon close down, but when. Make it happen - for Greg, Natasha and Heather and for the animals dying inside the labs.

Pakistan, Somalia and the media. Two protests in London on Saturday.

12-11-2007 20:32

A noisy demo outside downing street...
Arriving at Downing St, I am surprised by the number of media present to cover the demo. There must be at least 30 photographers and camera people for the protest against the imposition of martial law in Pakistan. They all seem to be huddled around one corner of the demonstration which numbers about 500. Have our tabloid editors suddenly experienced a huge change of heart in what they consider to be news? Are the concerns of the British Pakistani community now worth investigation for the first time ever? Are human rights and the behavior of our terror-war allies now a priority for our media?

If only….

Occupation Struggles Heat Up In Reading

11-11-2007 17:57

In Reading, as the entire town is flogged off to international money-men and and the needs of the people go ignored, its difficult to make the priorities and forces running our neighbourhoods and our world, and the injustice that results, more obvious. But two ongoing struggles in the Katesgrove area of the town do just that.
