Hey! Fancy a Diet Coke? – ‘The lawsuits charged that Coca-Cola bottlers “contracted with. or otherwise directed, paramilitary security forces that utilized extreme violence and murdered, tortured, unlawfully detained or otherwise silenced trade union leaders.” The lawsuits and campaign were developed to force Coca-Cola to once and for all end further bloodshed, compensate victims and provide safe working conditions.’ ‘The […]
I have just heard some news which is almost too heartbreaking to put into words. This morning, a little boy, Marcel Shadi Nemeh, died of his wounds in hospital after sustaining them last Sunday in an attack by Nusra Front terrorists on his home in Skeilbiyyeh, Syria. In that same attack, his brother Bashar was killed, along with three other children who were innocently playing in a monastery courtyard and some in their own homes.
This is TODAY in Al Skeilbiyyeh, Syria, after six children were killed by the Jihadists that the UK. US, and the other war criminals, fund and support! Look at this grief!! Look at these mothers! Look at the little coffins! Your government has this blood on its hands!! These men carrying the coffins are residents of this town who took […]
In December 2010 I watched an interview with Julian Assange conducted by Newsnight’s Kirsty Wark. See for yourselves below how it was conducted, with Wark pressing the ‘sexual offender in danger of absconding’ line repeatedly even as Assange attempted to explain that he had stayed in Sweden for five weeks after the allegations emerged and only left after seeking permission […]

On the evening of Friday, November 30, Hezbollah’s war media broadcasted this video addressed to Israel and subtitled in Hebrew, in response to recent Israeli military exercises simulating an aggression against southern Lebanon, an escalation of violations of Lebanese airspace –from which aggressions against Syria are usually carried out– by Israeli drones, and new threats to assassinate Hezbollah Secretary General. The […]
The photograph above shows independent journalist, Vanessa Beeley and Shade Shhde whose three children, wife and mother were all killed in the massacre at Mhardeh, Syria – an outrage ignored by the West’s corporate media. Shade is giving Vanessa the bracelet his eldest daughter used to wear. This almost unbearably moving gesture is a grieving man’s way of demonstrating how much […]
Keith Mann speaks passionately at the launch of his must-read book, ‘I Am Keith Mann. I Cured Cancer at Home’. Read BSNews co-editor Alison Banville’s review of Keith’s book here. Buy the book here. The information in its 400 pages is of seismic importance and should be shared far and wide. This is why:
Truth. Now there’s a word. It sounds simple doesn’t it? Superficially. Something most people would declare they align themselves with. It’s one of those obvious signifiers of decency. Truth is like Justice. Who would not say they are in favour? But just like Justice, Truth is a far more profound concept than most would dare to admit. The word […]

‘The Wrong Kind of Veteran’ – Veterans For Peace UK, Blackpool Council and the Death of Civil Liberties
Two weeks ago on Armed Forces Day a group of men handing out leaflets in Blackpool was ordered by a private security firm’s employees to stop what they were doing immediately and leave the promenade. What on earth was on those leaflets? Something highly offensive, surely, to have forced the authorities into such dramatic action to prevent the public seeing […]
