Day of Mass Resistance
Here's a list of the events organised throughout America on that day - The World Can't Wait.
"According to the police, hundreds of Britain's homes have been transformed into secret 'cannabis factories'. Criminal gangs are refitting ordinary suburban residences in order to cultivate a powerful and lucrative form of cannabis known as 'skunk', which is associated with depression, anxiety and being very, very high*.Here's how, read: Do you have a pot farm next door?
In an attempt to combat the problem, police are asking suburbanites to keep an eye out for pot-growing neighbours. But how can you tell if next door has been transformed into a skunk farm?"
"Telling us that cannabis is a relatively harmless and inexpensive intoxicant, the report presents statistics that the drug is grown and consumed everywhere and in very impressive quantities. Based on public polling data from 134 countries, the report explains that an estimated 4% of humanity enjoys the planet's most popular illicit drug. Given the understandable reluctance of respondents in many societies to answer pollsters' questions about their illicit drug use, the survey's findings are probably too conservative. Even so, 4% of humanity is 162 million people - a number equivalent to the entire population of the UK, Germany and Sweden. In a style akin to what's what in the cannabis world we hear that it is relatively inexpensive in Kazakhstan, where 'as much as 400,000 hectares of cannabis grow wild'. 'Swaziland is known for producing high-quality cannabis,' according to the report, while, 'Malawi is ... world renowned for the quality of its cannabis.'Here's the report: World Drug Report (it's quite thick).
With the UNODC, providing evidence that an inexpensive and harmless recreational drug continues to be consumed by at least one in 25 people on the planet, and that it is supplied by a vast army of small growers with economic activity of an enormous scale, one would think that even the most gung-ho politician would realise that cannabis prohibition is a failed policy."
At left. A 'shape charge'. This is how explosive is fastened around a steel girder to cut it through. The angled cut is used so that the cut girder will slide down.If you don't think it was possible for anyone to have been able to set up such a system of explosives, you'd better watch the video.
At right: Part of a core column left standing after the collapse of the WTC. The hardened once-liquid metal is a symptom of thermite use.
Inquiries Act 2005To see how this works in practice, take a look at the Report of the Official Account of the Bombings in London on 7th July 2005.
4. Appointment of inquiry panel
(1) Each member of an inquiry panel is to be appointed by the Minister by an instrument in writing.
(2) The instrument appointing the chairman must state that the inquiry is to be held under this Act.
(3) Before appointing a member to the inquiry panel (otherwise than as chairman) the Minister must consult the person he has appointed, or proposes to appoint, as chairman.
"UN inspectors investigating Iran's nuclear program angrily complained to the Bush administration and to a Republican congressman yesterday about a recent House committee report on Iran's capabilities, calling parts of the document 'outrageous and dishonest' and offering evidence to refute its central claims.
Officials of the United Nations' International Atomic Energy Agency said in a letter that the report contained some 'erroneous, misleading and unsubstantiated statements'."
"'This is like prewar Iraq all over again,' said David Albright, a former nuclear inspector who is president of the Washington-based Institute for Science and International Security. 'You have an Iranian nuclear threat that is spun up, using bad information that's cherry-picked and a report that trashes the inspectors.'"
"Excellent article. It is great to see this sort of appreciation from journalists - something we do not have enough of here in Australia. The main broadsheet, The Australia (owned by R. Murdoch), has been voraciously cynical of Al Gore's Film. Each day it has opinion pieces deriding and outright denying the science presented in the documentary."I must admit, the first time I heard that Al Gore had made a film called An Inconvenient Truth, I thought for sure it must be about all the unanswered questions around 9/11 and the enormity of the danger facing the world if the Bush cabal did engineer the atrocity to suit their agenda.
"Marihuana makes fiends of boys in thirty days - Hashish goads users to bloodlust."
"Was it marijuana, the new Mexican drug, that nerved the murderous arm of Clara Phillips when she hammered out her victim's life in Los Angeles?... THREE-FOURTHS OF THE CRIMES of violence in this country today are committed by DOPE SLAVES - that is a matter of cold record."
"Two days before the fifth anniversary of the attacks, David Ray Griffin, emeritus professor of philosophy of religion and theology at Claremont graduate university, and author of The New Pearl Harbor and The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions, will ask his audience: 'Was 9/11 an inside job?'If you can't make it to London's Conway Hall to hear him tonight, you can hear him here on Google Video.
The theories as to what happened on that day, when almost 3,000 people were killed, differ but their unifying theme is that a neo-conservative cabal within the US government staged the events as a pretext to wage wars, become a dominant force in the world and establish "the new American century". The attacks, it is said, were not carried out by al-Qaida terrorists but were a 'false flag' event used to justify invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq."
