Kingsley Burrell: Birmingham march for justice

28-06-2011 14:45

Britain is a country that is deeply divided by race. Not of course the crude racism of the Deep South antebellum but the echoes of the polite genteel racism that nevertheless produces hard structural inequalities is as real today as it ever was. The collusion with racism and the maintenance of inequalities based on skin colour regardless of citizenship or talent continues to blight the lives of millions of black people.

Public rally in support of victims of torture: 26 June (report and pictures)

27-06-2011 19:17

David Harrold, London Guantánamo Campaign
Since 1998, this date, the anniversary of the United Nations Convention Against Torture becoming international law in 1987, has been “an occasion for the world to speak up against the unspeakable” (Kofi Annan, former UN Secretary General). Unfortunately, rather than reduce or eliminate the use of torture, the stated purpose of such international conventions and laws, making the use of torture absolutely prohibited, its use continues to spread across the globe with the collusion and connivance of almost all governments.

NATO: Invasion of Libya

26-06-2011 22:00

cowboy-gangster-style robbery
Libya as a new litmus test if the “21st Century Law of the Jungle“ will prevail ..... Arrival of the “21st Century cowboy gangster-style” imperialism instead the much-anticipated co-prosperous multipolar world of mutually-respecting, democratically consensus-building, respectfully dialoguing, non-interfering of sovereign nations’ internal affairs ... Libya seems going to be a new litmus test for the immediate future of 21st Century international relations if, by any means necessary, the US-led NATO in the form of multinational “cowboy[i] gangster[ii]-style robbery[iii]” completes its extremely greedy and hypocritical goals in a immensely natural and financial resource-rich North African nation.

Living among us: Canadian Activists Speak Out On Police Infiltration

26-06-2011 08:48

On June 26, 2010, while the G20 summit was under way amid mass protests on the streets of downtown Toronto, a startling revelation was made that would reverberate through activist communities for months to come. Two undercover police officers had joined protest groups and been living among activists as part of a large-scale investigation that began more than a year earlier, in April 2009.

Following the arrest of four activists that same morning under charges of conspiracy, the Toronto Star reported that “Undercover officers infiltrated criminal extremist groups in Guelph, Kitchener, Waterloo and Toronto and forged relationships with several people whose ideological beliefs and backgrounds pose a direct threat to large-scale public events, including the G20,” according to allegations by Crown attorneys.

Attack on G4S

Confused as to which editorial guideline/s required this action report to be hidden by moderators... or was it simply a case of cowardly political censorship?

Great attack from comrades in Nottingham and well communicated.
