Calais Migrant Solidarity

15-07-2009 18:52

Please act now. We are calling for phone and email blockades of the French Embassy in London; Phil Woolas, UK Immigration Minister; the French Interior Ministry. All contacts at the end of this message.

We are calling for these targets as the UK Border starts in Calais – both the French and British states are implicitly involved in any attacks (legal or otherwise) that are launched against migrants in Calais. As the burning and destruction of the migrant camp at Patras in Greece shows, EU states now have little to fear in their attacks against migrants, as popular support for the far-right in the European elections shows. We need to show them otherwise. Of course, any other direct action is welcomed.

No Borders! No Nations!

Bottom-up rights and ethical globalization

15-07-2009 03:21

The UN human rights instruments have left out a number of rights which particularly affect the independent peoples (e.g. small business) and the most disadvantaged. It is apparent that these excluded rights were considered incompatible with neo liberalism and globalization. They are 'bottom-up' rights and entail an ethical globalization. These rights need to be struggled for to be included in domestic and international human rights law.

Change in Iran

women on the streets
The people of Iran have already effected change. They may not yet have overthrown the Supreme Being and his evil regime, but they have changed the world view of Iran. We now see a different Iran. The hated 'turnip tops' (the ayatollahs and mullahs) are isolated. This has only been possible through various networks and individuals.
