Indeed in the wake of the Helsinki […]

The War on Syria: Driving Home the Truth and the Need to Act Now

The war on Syria is remarkable on many levels.  One of these levels is the success of Western propagandists to prevent the truth from attaining widespread acceptance. Similarly, reputable researchers confirmed long ago what broad-based Western audiences still refuse to accept: On-the-ground evidence of liberated areas continues to reveal the monstrous crimes of the West’s terrorist proxies, and it continues […]

‘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.

Frankie Boyle: Your new show betrayed Gaza

Which may be why some of us were infuriated watching a show hosted by you – probably the only true dissident currently given a show on mainstream TV – trash Corbyn in exactly the same terms used over the past two years by every section of the corporate media, from the Daily Mail and the Times to the Guardian and the BBC.
