28-06-2008 22:56

If a recent article in the New York Times is to be believed, the Bush regime are trying their damned hardest to get their mitts on the personal data of E.U. citizens.

Media Lens Alert: Selling the Fireball - George Bush and Iran

25-06-2008 10:07

When George Bush arrived in Britain last week as part of his "farewell tour", the real reasons for the visit were buried well out of sight. The tour was not, as the Guardian suggested, a mere "continental au revoir". The purpose was to coerce Gordon Brown into raising troop levels in Afghanistan and to support toughened sanctions on Iran. Bush said pressure on Iran was necessary to "solve this problem diplomatically", but warned: "Iranians must understand, however, that all options are on the table." ( uk_news/politics/7456081.stm)

Our Collective Duty to Zimbabwe

20-06-2008 10:49

Experiences in Guyana, in Kenya and in Zimbabwe have taught us that it is a mistake to adopt western standards of victory as our own, write Horace Campbell and Eusi Kwayana. Victory for us must mean reconciliation of divided populations. Reconciliation will fail utterly if it is imposed; or allows free rein to corruption, militarism or if it ignores the choices of the people in valid elections. We have responsibility as progressives and Pan-Africanists to Zimbabwe.

Why Ireland voted NO to the Lisbon Treaty

20-06-2008 08:15

Israeli Embassy in Dublin
Letter from the The Lisbon Campaign for Middle East Justice and Peace to the sh Taoiseach, Mr. Brian Cowen T.D., the Minster for Foreign Affairs, Mr. Michael Martin T.D., leading European Officials and all Irish MEP's conveying our reasons for campaigning for a NO vote in the Treaty of Lisbon referendum.

Despite the fact that Israel killed 58 Palestinian children since the start of 2008 (Palestinian Centre for Human Rights) EU foreign ministers on Wednesday agreed to strengthen ties with Israel.

He's back.
