De Menezes family murder charge call
By : London - Wednesday August 17, 2005
Relatives of the Brazilian man shot dead by anti-terror police on a London Tube train want them to be charged with murder. Officers mistakenly thought Jean Charles de Menezes was a suicide bomber, but recently leaked documents show he did not try to run away from police or vault the ticket barrier before they gunned him down at Stockwell Tube station as initial reports suggested. According to documents obtained by ITV News, the Brazilian entered the station at a normal walking pace and (...)

British police challenged over shooting of Brazilian man
By : Kirsten Aiken - Wednesday August 17, 2005
by Kirsten Aiken MARK COLVIN: In Britain a leaked report has cast major new doubts on the credibility of the police in the case of the young Brazilian man who was wrongfully killed on the underground last month. The report, obtained by the national commercial TV news service ITN, contradicts the police account of how undercover officers shot and killed, Jean Charles de Menezes. It challenges such police claims as that Mr de Menezes ran away and jumped a ticket barrier, and even that he (...)

By Charlie Coon STUTTGART, Germany - Three anti-war protesters, including a 70-year-old woman, turned themselves in to police on Tuesday after they cut a large hole in the fence at Patch Barracks, walked onto the base, hung a banner, and weren’t challenged by anyone. The three Germans, the woman and two men ages 51 and 22, were apparently surprised they weren’t arrested after breaking onto the base at about 11:30 a.m. So they walked through the base and out the main gate, (...)

by Vijay Dutt, London Hate crimes in Britain have soared by 600 per cent causing the fear of a race divide in multicultural British society. Scotland Yard figures show there was 269 religious hate crimes, motivated by animosity towards Muslims since July 7 compared with 40 in the same period last year. A direct outcome of the two bomb attacks on London Transport system, such hate offences have jumped by nearly 600% in the capital. Most were verbal abuses or minor assaults, but it also (...)

Five anti-war activists demonstrating against a ban on unauthorised protests near Parliament have been arrested. A ban on protests within half-a-mile of Westminster which have not been cleared by police came into force at midnight.

The Real Meaning of the Murder of Jean Charles de Menezes Garbis Altinoglu, 29 July 2005 The killing on 22 July, of a 27-year old Brazilian electrician Jean Charles de Menezes at a tube station in south London is a blatant example of state terrorism.

As the Official Story of the killing of Jean Charles de Menezes develops, it gets weirder and weirder: 1.The police were staking out the block of flats in which he was living because the address had been found in documents left in one of the abandoned rucksacks that didn’t blow up in the last series of attacks. That’s a good place to leave the address of your safe house! 2.There were eight separate flats in the block, and he did not look like any of the suspects, but the (...)

The Police State Act: A Report
By : Rep. Ron Paul, MD - Tuesday July 26, 2005

by Rep. Ron Paul, MD Congress passed legislation last week that reauthorizes the Patriot Act for another 10 years, although the bill faced far more opposition than the original Act four years ago. I’m heartened that more members of Congress are listening to their constituents, who remain deeply skeptical about the Patriot Act and expansions of federal police power in general. They rightfully wonder why Congress is so focused on American citizens, while bin Laden and other terrorist (...)

John Gardner is the Professor of Jurisprudence at the University of Oxford, and occasional Visiting Professor at Yale Law School. Police state: Like many of my fellow-Londoners I am less alarmed by suicide bombers than I am by the police’s Mossad-style execution of a ’suspect’ (who turned out to be a completely innocent passer-by) on Friday 22 July. This is not because we are at greater risk of death at the hands of the police than at the hands of the bombers. (Both risks (...)

Is Your Printer Spying On You? Posted by Donna Wentworth July 24, 2005 Imagine that every time you printed a document, it automatically included a secret code that could be used to identify the printer — and potentially, the person who used it. Sounds like something from an episode of "Alias," right? Unfortunately, the scenario isn’t fictional. In an effort to identify counterfeiters, the US government has succeeded in persuading some color laser printer manufacturers to (...)

Bush-Cheney Paranoia: ’Domestic Terrorism’ & the National Security Service (The New SS)

(7-18-05) Talked with an FBI agent last week, someone I haven’t talked to in about ten years or so. He was with a domestic terrorism task force in the Western regional FBI office in the mid-1990’s. This was at the peak of what the FBI thought was a potential crisis with “domestic terrorism,” i.e. the so-called militia groups. As everyone knows, the militia groups reached their peak of influence in the mid-1990s. At that point, the FBI was becoming increasingly (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out.

At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
