Global Systematic Discrimination against the Poor

23-09-2009 18:20

States are due to sign a UN protocol which by its exclusion of core obligations will allow States to discriminate against the poor. This will give more credibility to those terrorists who claim to be fighting on behalf of the poor. The protocol by also excluding the empowerment rights to development et al will allow States to create a more dependent population unable to help themselves. Many States are already following such policies.

Hatemongering in America—the Post-Carter Dilemma Versus Conservative Opposition

20-09-2009 23:27

The venom and vile the spews forth from America’s body politic is endemic of a people infected with fear and prejudice; but this learned hatred of a democratic agenda is not one based primarily on racism—yet hostility and resentment is very much its spirit. Rather this anima of animosity is one that seeks scapegoats for any instability felt or imagined of America’s middle and lower class realities, and all presumptions of a relatively naïve and misinformed society.

Elijah Smith 9 months on remand without trial

Elijah Smith, Tom Woodhead and Robert Alford appeared in Yate Magistrates Court today 17th September 2009. Exactly 9 months since they were arrested following the decommissioning of EDO in Brighton. The CPS are now attempting to run both the Raytheon Rooftop case and the EDO decommissioning as one big conspiracy case, although the defence team are appossed to this.

Today's court case wasn't particularly interesting as the defence have called a 'read through commital'. In our terms that means the defence is asking for a judge to read through the papers before the full court case on the grounds there is insufficient grounds to take the 3 through court because of lack of evidence.

The 3 accused protesters are next in court on the 8th of October at 9:45am keep up to date @

Hands Off the People of Iran Meeting in Leeds

17-09-2009 11:58

In the last few months, Iranian society has been gripped by political crisis, sparked by the nakedly fraudulent outcome of its recent elections

We must consider serious questions such as what vehicle can the Iranian people use to positively overcome the theocratic regime which they live and die under. What is our station in any of this and what on earth can we do to prevent questioning of the state in Iran becoming a pretext to greater Imperialist intervention, further than the UN sponsored strangle hold it has on the people of Iran right now

This is an open invitation, please come along

of the Steering Committee of Hands Off the People of Iran, Leeds

Venezuela: The Principle of Hope Against Global United States Military Bases

15-09-2009 01:56

Franz & Jutta explaining the Principle of Hope against Military Terrorism
Our clarion call is the New, a new logic, science, philosophy and wisdom, that is, the New per se. To create this we need no Manhattan project for arms of mass destruction: we only need to live the Truth 'praxically', to study reality theoretically, and to surpass the bourgeois, capitalist, world revolution with creative emancipation, with emancipatory creation.

Sheen wants Obama's ear
Eight years on and in the aftermath of Hollywood actor Charlie Sheen's 9/11 challenge to President Barack Obama, journalists of the world's media conglomerates have been slow responders to follow the trail of evidence. Sheen posed numerous questions in a YouTube video directed at the President and claimed in a supporting document that the official 9/11 story was a cover-up that fitted an historical pattern of government scripted attacks as pretexts for war.
