Burying the truth. For 40 years the story of Brofiscin Quarry – now the most polluted place in the UK – has been suppressed. Documents have been mysteriously lost, witnesses silenced, scientific data ignored. But the truth about Monsanto's PCB scandal is leaking out.

Accountability for Blackwater



Mobile phone danger


Chances are you've already made at least one call on your mobile today - just like 40 million other users in the UK.

Mobile usage is immense, with half the world's population predicted to have one by the end of the decade.

But if new research is to be believed, we could be sitting on a health time-bomb.

Dark Legacy Of Torture

by Liliana Segura, AlterNet

Hollywood fiction can hardly match the harsh reality of Bush's rendition policy.


From TomPaine.com



Over the past 16 years, Grayson has litigated dozens of cases of contractor fraud. In many of these, he has found the Justice Department to be an ally in exposing wrongdoing. But in cases that involve the Iraq war, the D.O.J. has taken extraordinary steps to stand in his way. Behind its machinations, he believes, is a scandal of epic proportions -- one that may come to haunt the legacy of the Bush administration long after it is gone.

Fearing Fear Itself

Paul Krugman, writing for The New York Times, says: "In America's darkest hour, Franklin Delano Roosevelt urged the nation not to succumb to 'nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror.' But that was then. Today, many of the men who hope to be the next president - including all of the candidates with a significant chance of receiving the Republican nomination - have made unreasoning, unjustified terror the centerpiece of their campaigns."



Putin verglich geplante US-Raketenabwehr mit Kuba-Krise

Beim Treffen mit EU-Vertretern hat Russlands Präsident Vladimir Putin den Konflikt um den geplanten US-Raketenschild mit der Kuba-Krise verglichen. Die Pläne der USA für eine Raketenabwehr in Europa würden eine Situation wie zu Zeiten der Kuba-Krise in den sechziger Jahren schaffen, so Putin. "Eine solche Bedrohung wird an unserer Grenze aufgebaut." "Ich will daran erinnern, wie sich die Beziehungen in einer ähnlichen Situation in der Mitte der sechziger Jahre des vergangenen Jahrhunderts entwickelt haben", sagte er. "Für uns ist die Situation technologisch sehr ähnlich." Die Kuba-Krise hatte die USA und die damalige Sowjetunion 1962 an den Rand eines Atomkrieges gebracht. US-Präsident George W. Bush hatte vor kurzem von einem Dritten Weltkrieg gesprochen.

Immunity Deal Hampers Blackwater Inquiry

Lara Jakes Jordan reports for The Associated Press: "The State Department promised Blackwater USA bodyguards immunity from prosecution in its investigation of last month's deadly shooting of 17 Iraqi civilians.... The immunity deal has delayed a criminal inquiry into the Sept. 16 killings and could undermine any effort to prosecute security contractors for their role in the incident that has infuriated the Iraqi government."



US Arms Exports Up, Oversight Down

Truthout's Maya Schenwar reports: "The Bush administration hopes to push through two license-free arms sales treaties before the end of this Senate session. Both would eliminate much of the oversight that governs international weapons trades. The treaties, one with the United Kingdom and one with Australia, exemplify a growing trend of weakening restrictions on arms exports, even as fears of weapons proliferation intensify worldwide."

In Paris last week, Rumsfeld left a prestigious speaking event in haste, slipping out a side door to avoid the human rights lawyers and journalists waiting to confront him with criminal charges of torture.

The American Police State

The government has closed seven Muslim charities in the United States and frozen their assets. Not one of them, or any person associated with them, has been found guilty of financing terrorism.

His first response, 'The youth movement.'"

Vodafone wants to add to mast

SARUM Road reservoir in Winchester, home to three telecom operators, may be getting a fourth tenant in the near future.

Mobile phone giant, Vodafone, is hoping to install antennae and satellite dishes in a mast share deal with O2, which already occupies a 20-metre mast on the site.

The Southern Water reservoir has been the subject of much protest in the past as the surrounding area is mainly residential with Sarum Road Hospital and Kings' School Boarding House close by.



Bt Crops Threaten Aquatic Ecosystems

ISIS Press Release 30/10/07

Scientists find wastes from transgenic Bt corn impair growth of common aquatic insect and call on future risk assessment to include aquatic ecosystems previously overlooked. Dr. Mae-Wan Ho

In 2006, 35 percent of the 33.1 million hectares of the corn planted in the United States was transgenic, modified to express the Bt toxin Cry1Ab from Bacillus thuringiensis. Bt corn is widely planted in the Midwestern US, often next to headwater streams. Yet, no environmental impact studies have been made of Bt crop by-products on stream insects such as caddisflies (trichopterans), which are common in streams, and closely related to the lepidopterans (butterflies and moths) targeted by the Cry1Ab protein in Bt corn.

As a group, the caddisflies have diverse feeding habbits. Some are filter- feeders, others scrape bioflims off submerged surfaces, and still others feed on detritus. All these caddisflies may consume Bt corn by-products.

A team of scientists led by Emma J. Rosi-Marshall at:Loyola University Chicago in Illinois have now carried out the first study on the fate of transgenic Bt corn wastes in headwater streams next to the fields and their impact on the caddisflies [1]

Existenzgeld Reloaded

„Ein Lied geht durch Europa. Ein Lied über ein Einkommen für alle, Mann, Frau oder Kind, egal ob man in dem Land, in dem man lebt und dieses Einkommen bezieht, auch geboren ist.“ So hieß es Ende der neunziger Jahre zusammenfassend in einem Resümee der Bundesarbeitsgemeinschaft der Sozialhilfeinitiativen (BAG SHI) zur Entwicklung der Idee eines Existenzgeldes. Mittlerweile kann von einem ganzen Orchester gesprochen werden, das mit unterschiedlichen Dirigenten und Solisten sowie dissonanten Notensetzungen durch Europa zieht. Kaum ein Tag ohne Berichterstattung oder Veranstaltung über das Für und Wider eines bedingungslosen Grundeinkommens, nach über zwanzig Jahren Dornröschenschlaf wird eine Idee wach geküsst. Allerdings nicht von einem, sondern von vielen Prinzen! In diesem Band versammeln sich Positionen aus dem Umfeld der BAG der Sozialhilfeinitiativen: Konzepte, Vorstellungen und Diskussionen von VertreterInnen der Betroffenen und engagierte WissenschaftlerInnen: Harald Rein, Hinrich Garms, Wolfram Otto, Robert Ulmer, Anne Allex, Andreas Geiger…“ So der Klappentext des von der Bundesarbeitsgemeinschaft der Erwerbslosen- und Sozialhilfe-Initiativen herausgegebenen Buches (ISBN 978-3-930830-96-1 – 2008 – 143 Seiten – 16 €).
