02-04-2008 22:52How could progressive people be on the same side as Bush, the CIA and the ultra-right? How do we explain the paradox of progressive people supporting a movement that is financed and supported by the proponents of the U.S. Empire, as well as by all of the other old European colonial powers that had divided, humiliated and looted China for a full century prior to the 1949 revolution?

02-04-2008 16:40chris coverdale was arrested earlier today at his home in wimbledon for non-payment of fines imposed for a previous SOCPA unauthorised demonstration offence. he is being held overnight at wimbledon police station and will apear at the local court tomorrow morning.
He told me of the present of what Brian Haw witnessed as begun so many years back.
85% of the people are farmers. There are presently huge land disputes between the very poor and big business/the goveernment. I assume it is similiar to china's situation where the farmers are being removed so that the nouveau riche may build their American Dream houses.
Rice is over $1.00 per kilo and petrol is the same - $1.00 per litre. Their are some irrigation systems in place and there is little rain fall.
When poeple can't eat, their children don't go to school - the only way out of poverty is through education.
There is a huge problem with families selling thier children as a means of survival.
We started off this problem. This is our responsibility in the West.
Brian saw the killing fields and now the country is on the raod to economic collapse as inflation is presently soaring.
Who pays the price?
the children, as always.

30-03-2008 19:03Having failed to get rid of Brian Haw by force (see:
http://www.indymedia.org.uk/en/2007/10/383843.html ) the Greater London Authority is trying again by legislation, their responses to the government consultation 'Managing Protest around Parliament' all seem to be aimed at getting rid of the peace camp. And the government agrees with them, SOCrAP isn't buried yet and they're already robbing its corpse.
Time for a protest outside City Hall?
