New War Rumors: U.S. Plans To Seize Pakistan’s Nuclear Arsenal

18-10-2010 02:01

“The free-wheeling access to US covert military and intelligence operatives, both officials and private contractors, is another destabilising factor that we seem to be unable or unwilling to check. And now there are the NATO incursions into our territory and targeting of even our military personnel, which shows how servile a state we are living in at present. [10]

As the war in Afghanistan, the largest and longest in the world, proceeds with record casualties among civilians and combatants alike on both sides of the Afghan-Pakistani border, plans are afoot to further expand the war into Pakistan and to threaten Iran as well.

Comparisons to Washington’s war in Indochina have been mentioned. [11] But Pakistan with its 180 million people and nuclear weapons is not Cambodia and Iran with its population of over 70 million is not Laos."

Austerity? Fuck No! Everyone To Downing St, Oct 20th 6pm

15-10-2010 16:46

Everyone to the streets!
There is a general call-out for everyone who can to go to Downing St on Weds Oct 20th at 6pm on the day that the Con-Dem government announces its regime of cuts in public spending. It's vital to take our resistance out onto the streets of London in a fashion that has not been seen since the time of the protests against the Iraq War.

Spreading this date and time and intention as far and as wide as possible through your email lists, facebook, twitter etc is a good idea. Word of mouth is a great way to get people out.

The mother and daughter, who have lived in Britain for seven years, have previously spent several spells in Dungavel detention centre in North Lanarkshire and Yarl's Wood in Bedforshire and were granted a last-minute reprieve last November while sitting on a plane at Heathrow airport about to take them Malawi.

The family's advocate argued their case at a 20-minute hearing in London on Wednesday but Lord Justice Sullivan dismissed their claims, denying them a chance to appeal the Home Office's decision to deport them.

Unacceptable death of Jimmy Mubenga a settled refugee

15-10-2010 08:10

Jimmy Mubenga
Deportation death raises questions over 'proportionate force'
In the interest of justice there should be with out a shadow of doubt an immediate 'independent' enquiry into the circumstances surrounding the unacceptable death of Jimmy Mubenga. If left to the powers that be, any investigation will be (if there is one) a long time coming, years not months and not independent.

Further, the government have announced the abolition of the office of the Chief Coroner (before it was even established), which could and would have afforded proper investigations into deaths like these.
