Rumsfeld in Adelaide

17-11-2005 02:53

US Secretary of Defence, Zionist and neo-con extraordinaire, Donald Rumsfeld, will visit Adelaide (of all places) to hold discussions with servile Australian politicians regarding Australia’s continuing involvement with the pariah nation of the world, the USA. Rumsfeld’s visit is timely, it coincides with nationwide dissent and protest against IR and draconian anti-terrorist laws recently implemented by leading US lackey and coward extraordinaire, John Howard.

Bhutanese women in protest.
After fifteen years in exile the Bhutanese government has shown no real efforts to repatriate its citizens. We continue to remain in the refugee camps where the situation is increasingly degrading due to the prolonged waiting and the drastic cuts in the supply of the basic facilities has further worsened the condition of the people. The education sector has not been able to maintain the quality of education supposedly due to the financial constraints. The sudden halt of supplying panel roofs and green vegetables and the repeated announcement made by the funding agencies to further cut of the essential items such as kerosene and other items has frustrated us. At the same time, the sufferings of the people inside the country under the despotic rule of the present government are equally being left unheard and unnoticed by the world community.

Call for Solidarity: Repression vs. Indigenous, Colombia

15-11-2005 19:30

Indymedia UK are currently getting reports of 2000 riot police and an unspecified army presence outside of a squat held by 500 people, mostly poor indigenous families, in Cauca, Colombia. Over the past few days, 1 person has been killed and 37 people have been injured by police beatings and bullets. The situation is tense and they are calling for solidarity emails, letter-writing and publicity because they are worried that without this the police and army will attack.

Guambianos, Kokonuko and Nasa indigenous people, as well as thousands of peasants that are demanding land, have occupied haciendas (a hacienda is a huge piece of rural property) in several parts of Cauca since the 12th of October.

They are protesting because the INCODER (Colombian Institute for Rural Development) is not given funds or legal power to achieve rural reform, in Cauca or in the rest of the country.

Despite being heavily tear-gassed and losing one boy (Belisario Camayo Huetoto, 16) dead to police bullets, the families on the occupied land are calling for letters, phone calls, emails, and faxes to the Colombian Embassy to make it politically more difficult for the government to allow the police and army to attack the settlement.

Trashed towns and corrupt councils

15-11-2005 16:44

That a bunch of councillors against the wishes of the local community should choose to trash the historic heart of Bury St Edmunds comes as no surprise. It is happening in other towns too.
