UK secretly backs removal of nuclear chief
By Clayton Hirst
19 December 2004
Item from The independant shows how far the bliar poodler has gone.
How long can he last is open to question, given that poodlers tend to crack up in the end. As the poodler's own poddlers get caught out lying etc., we maty see the psychopathology play out in a suicide in the family as the awareness of his aiding the USUK atrocities in Iraq dawn.

The people of the free world have not forgotten that half of America’s population opposes the ultra-right wing regime of Bush. A similar situation occurred in Nazi Germany with the rise of another madman to power. The population became polarised; however, the half with the conscience was swept along with the fanatics to the ruin of all. Failure to act against the regime in the early stages resulted in a greater calamity for the entire nation. Let it not happen again!

A new drugs bill introduced to parliament on 16 Dec will extend police powers, including the power to test for class A drugs simply by arrest. Those testing positive would be required to attend an assessment and follow-up appointment.

Additionally, the bill will clarify the current ambiguity relating to the legal status of magic mushrooms, making POSSESSION OF ALL PSILOCYBIAN MUSHROOMS ILLEGAL. Fresh/unprepared mushrooms are currently legal to possess and sell in the UK. Mushrooms artificially dried/prepared for consumption are currently class A. Psilocybian mushrooms are of deep spiritual value as entheogenic sacraments to many people. Their further prohibition constitutes not an increase in the repression of both freedom of spiritual belief, and of basic civil liberties. Common features of the "drug war". I hate to say it, but i kinda saw this coming around a year ago when our beloved mycolegal loophole started becoming over-commercialised :@

One Million at the DC Capitol January 6 - Then Look Out!

19-12-2004 02:24

If we turn out one million people for the election suppression showdown on January 6, it will be impossible to hide how Karl Rove and the Republicans disenfranchised Blacks, Hispanics and students by - among other things - withholding voting machines and ensuring seven hour lines in the inner cities and no lines in the suburbs. What kind of inauguration after that!!

Please send this to the appropriate mailing lists.

Iran not off the hook yet

17-12-2004 17:59

The US and Iran are headed for a Neocon driven confrontation, say three of America's leading experts. But an Administration desire to control the Persian Gulf's energy, not nuclear questions, is the real force driving a clash, making Iran "the frontline state in the anti-hegemonist camp".
