Sharon was the one to pioneer collective punishment and mass murder in the early 1950s as the creator and commander of Israel's first notorious death squad, Unit 101. His early military career was spent in killing: not enemy soldiers but civilians in villages such as Kibyia. In Gaza during the early 1970s, he instigated a reign of terror, supposedly designed to end Palestinian resistance to the occupation. It was really another phase in his lifelong struggle to make as many Palestinians as possible flee their own homeland.
Greetz This is Matt. On the news the other night I heard that Michael De Jong is getting charged for hacking the Canadian Government and threating rcmp. Now I can't condone what this guy did, but it seems stupid that the rcmp spends more time hasseling him than finding the murderer of the that killing on 3 road and westminster (May 8, 2004).
Fight rcmp propaganda.

On Monday May 3rd, 2004, hospital workers across BC were feeling frustration, disbelief and anger.
Overwhelmingly they rejected the "deal" that was made late Sunday night to end the HEU job action and the massive province wide strikes planned by
unions across BC.
Workers are now figuring out how to regroup and move forward. Further actions are planned including a picket at the BC Federation of Labour Offices Friday May 7th at 8:00am and a demonstration Saturday May 8th at 12:30 starting at the Art Gallery.
The leaflett and poster for Saturday's demo is available for download at http://resist.ca/~cshw. There will be co-ordinated leafletting and postering every evening this week.
The battle of Fallujah, together with the conflicts unfolding in Shia cities and Baghdad slums, are high-stakes tests, not just of U.S. policy in Iraq, but of Washington's ability to dominate what Pentagon planners consider the "key battlespace of the future" -- the Third World city.

will expel tens of thousands of Palestinians after it completes its
"security fence." Mr. Sharon said in the interview that "[Israel has] a
difficult problem with those who are illegally exercising [what they
perceive] as their right of return, by infiltrating into Arab cities and
villages within Israel."
In order to keep the public informed about the animal exploitation and its alternatives, the Antispeciesist Collective has organized a visual action in front of a butcher's shop and a fish shop. We held a workshop at the exit of the Commerce metro, playing a video & showing pictures of slaughterhouses, also giving flyers about veganism.
We were unable to finish the task that we started thursday night due to the fact that computers suck in general. So, we will be taking another shot at it Saturday (tomorrow) morning. The server will be down for at most 2 hours starting somewhere between 8 and 9:30 PST. Sorry for the inconvenince.
"Rearing, slavery; slaughterhouse, barbarism", "meat is murder", these are the slogans of some fifty vegan animal rights activists who stood in the Agriculture Fair on Saturday afternoon.
