The incident unfolding in Makati City today is not surprising. It is a logical conclusion to the abuses committed by the Gloria Macapagal Arroyo (GMA) administration, from the dismissal of the impeachment complaint to the clamp down of democratic and constitutional processes.
A struggle has been going on in the Old Town of Edinburgh for nearly three years, between wealthy developers and community activists. The Council and a company called Mountgrange have been trying to invest and build in the Cannongate area of Edinburgh, and their £200 million 'Caltongate' plans have met a great deal of criticism and opposition from community activists.
Radical Independent Bookfair - CCA Glasgow - Saturday 15 December 2007
Cannabis cultivation rose 40 percent in Afghanistan this year, to 173,000 acres from 123,550 in 2006, the U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime estimated in its 2007 opium survey. The crop is being grown in at least 18 of Afghanistan's 34 provinces, according to the survey released last month. The U.N. report singles out Balkh as a "leading example" of an opium-free province, saying other areas should follow "the model of this northern region where leadership, incentives and security have led farmers to turn their backs on opium."
At 7.30 a.m. yesterday morning 5 people peacefully walked straight into Raytheon Systems Ltd, Glenrothes having found the gates open and security a bit slow. They walked into reception and asked to speak to a spokesperson at the site, who unsurprisingly did not emerge, and traffic was held up whilst a long banner stating “Raytheon SL, Death Profiteers” was held across a main access road inside the site. Two supplementary gates had by lucky coincidence been D-locked at the same time. Fliers were given out to workers queuing up to get into the car park and photos of the human cost of the bombs dropped on Lebanon last summer.
Staff at State-run detention centres including Dover and Lindholme are issued with wooden staves, a weapon banned from use in some prisons.
