Ken Livingston, Mayor of London, has always been one of the most outspoken members of hard - left "Old Labour", earning him the nickname "Red Ken". Prime Ministers Tony Blair and Margaret Thatcher worked hard to remove him from power, the former by (unsuccessfully) campaigning against him, the latter by the more drastic means of abolishing his office. His best - known political initiative is a $20 fee on all cars entering central London. Considered political suicide when proposed, his "congestion charge" has been enormously effective and will soon be copied by other megacities around the world. But when his spoke about the bombings in London, he sounded more like Winston Churchill......

'Missile Defense" Alive and Well in Canada

COAT:
Contrary to popular opinion, Canada is STILL actively participating in the creation, design, research, development, testing, deployment, maintenance and operation of numerous "missile defense" systems. The Canadian government has spent billions on military programs that aid and abet the U.S.-led "missile defense" weapons program.

Dispatch From London
By Sandip Roy, Pacific News Service, posted on Alternet

Instead of waking up to the hangover of too much Olympic partying, London woke to a daisy chain of bomb blasts and a question: will the attacks scar the image of Muslims in Britain?

French Nuclear Forces 2005

Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists:
Though France is a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and is bound by Article VI's goal of nuclear disarmament, it shows no signs of giving up its remaining arsenal. Instead, it is making plans to develop, procure, and deploy new nuclear weapons, and to maintain its existing arsenal without nuclear testing, for years to come.

Political Analysis of the 2005 Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference

Hon. Douglas Roche, O.C.:
  The Seventh Review Conference of the Non-Proliferation Treaty, failing to agree on any substantive item, showed the deep fissures in the international community on nuclear weapons. Despite an urgent appeal for action by U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan, who painted a picture of a nuclear catastrophe in one of the great cities of the world, the delegates of 153 countries could not rise up above petty disputes over the Conference agenda and at times sank into acrimony.

"Deadly Deadlock", a political analysis of the 2005 Review Conference of the Non-Proliferation Treaty was written by Canadian Senator Emeritus Douglas Roche, O.C., Chairman of the Middle Powers Initiative and former Canadian Ambassador for Disarmament.

Live 8 Organizers Ignored the Impact of Militarism on Poverty

PEJ News
- Joan Russow, Global Compliance research Project: It was estimated by Live 8 that one child dies of preventable causes every 3 minutes or if extended would be 3,400 children die per day. Live 8 organizers could have mentioned that 2.7 billion (US) is spent per day directly on the military. (An intentional omission or just an oversight!) In1992, estimated costs per year for global social justice - approx 500 (US ) billion.

G8 Protesters to Blockade Nuclear Submarine Base

Faslane Coalition - YOU CAN'T END POVERTY UNLESS YOU END WAR: ?The hidden hand of the market will never work without a hidden fist. McDonalds cannot flourish without McDonnell-Douglas, the designer of the F-15, and the hidden fist that keeps the world safe for Silicon Valley?s technology is called the United States Army, Airforce, Navy and Marine Corps.?  - Thomas Friedman, New York Times, 1999


Faslane is a Royal Navy submarine base on the Clyde 30 miles (45 km) from Glasgow and 60 miles (90 km) from Gleneagles. It's the largest military base in Scotland and home port for all four British Trident nuclear armed submarines. Nuclear weapons are the ultimate expression of militarism. By blockading Faslane we're striking at a key part of the British military establishment and building on a history of highly successful and peaceful mass blockades.

This will be the biggest and most effective yet.
