11-11-2004 16:24

Mad Chicks take flight!

11-11-2004 16:15

MAD CHICKS, the girly section of Mad Pride, is about women psychiatric patients and survivors of the psychiatric system, who are sick of being treated like crap and generally sidelined. MAD CHICKS believes that a women-focussed organisation and campaign can highlight issues with particular female resonance, such as mixed wards, childcare, assertiveness and rights, sexism in the NHS. We believe the female service user voice has been overlooked as a positive force, and seek to redress this by developing a supportive environment for women at risk of social exclusion to express ideas creatively.

NSW Greens lose bid to stop jail boss getting more power

Tanks Confront Los Angeles Iraq War Protestors!

10-11-2004 20:00


LOS ANGELES, November 9, 2004 - At 7:50 PM armored tanks showed up at an anti-war protest in front of the federal building in Westwood.

The tanks circled the block twice, the second time parking themselves in the street and directly in front of the area where most of the protesters were gathered.

Enraged, some of the people attempted to block the tanks, but police quickly cleared the street.

The people continued to protest the presence of the tanks, but after about ten minutes the tanks drove off. It is unclear as to why the tanks were deployed to this location.
