Autonomous Village Under Siege by Korean Troops

07-03-2006 18:46

Pyeongtaek, South Korea - On March 6th, 2006, South Korean military riot police began an attack on the autonomous village of Daechuri. For over four years, Daechuri and the nearby community of Doduri have defiantly resisted the siezure of their homes and fields for the expansion of an United States Army base. Barracaded inside the elementary school, rice farmers, elderly residents, and peace activists are holding out against sporadic, sometimes intense attacks by Korea's elite military police force. International support is needed to pressure the Korean government to halt its brutal assault.

Bow West Says No tonight to Crossrail attacks plan on the East End

07-03-2006 12:03

The battle for the public ownership of community resource is taking place across the UK along side the battle against huge diversion of the resource to war and propaganda. Nowhere more consistently than in the East End of London. Quite appropriate, Bethnal Green and Bow MPO George Galloway is involved in the battle as much as any UK Parliamentary constituency Member of Parliament [MP] is ever seen to be. Galloway is due to support tonight’s Bow West campaign meeting against Crossrail attacks on the East End. Speakers include Carole Swords who has been harassed by the present Tower Hamkest Council for her defence of the community. Khoodeelaar! is backing the Bow West meeting.

Crossrail hole Bill thretens more than East End of London-democracy too

05-03-2006 22:31

The threat posed to the East End of London by the UK Hosue of Commons draft piece of legislation, the CROSSRAIL Bill, goes beyond the planned destruction of entire communities and neighbourhoods. It also includes the destruction of what remains of local democracy, and the electors say on what is done in their name by their own 'locally elected council'. The Khoodeelaar! Campaign has just finalised the first comprehensive report on the role of those councillors who have held key posts in Tower Hamlets Council. They have acted as touts and as agents for Crossrail hole plan. Just as nominations for council elections begin to be finalised for the scheduled May 4 local elections, the findings of the Khoodeelaar! Investigation into Tower Hamlets Council make fascinating reading for all concerned with the defence of democracy in Britain.

Who is 'Tessa Jowelling' the East End for Crossrail hole attacks then ?

05-03-2006 08:33

Who is doing a Tessa Jowell on the East End of |London, then? It must be Tower Hamlets Council, without a doubt. But who is the Tony Blair minister that could be linked with that sort of deed, too close for comfort, sort of thing? Come forward Tony McNulty! And George Galloway is watching you this time! For sure! The hybrid Crossrail Bill [UK House of Commons] is still draft piece of legislation. But it may soon get passed into the UK statute Book and the powers it contains may soon begin to be applied to destroy communities including in the East End of London. This is bigger than any environmental disaster that ahs been planned and carried out on any part of London by any UK Government. That it is that massive can be seen in the very close involvement of many of Tony Blair’s ministers with key pushers of the Crossrail hole Bill attacks on the East End. Tony McNulty, now a Home Office Minister, is one such very closely involved. There are huge constitutional implications apart from the daily Khoodeelaar! chronicles of the social, the economic and the environmental ones.
