(In Nepal), (m)assive numbers have hit the streets in virtually every town in the country. The andolan (protest) was initially called for April 6th-9th, but in response to police violence it was extended indefinitely. Every part of society has held marches and demos against the king. Lawyers, journalists, doctors, women, old people, families of 'disappeared' people, professors, schoolkids, tourists, government workers, NGO workers, students and families of police have taken part. Police have attacked all of the above, perhaps with the exception of their own families!

(T)he People's Kifah (an Iraqi humanitarian group), involved hundreds of academics and volunteers in a survey conducted in coordination with "grave-diggers across Iraq." The group said it also "obtained information from hospitals and spoke to thousands of witnesses who saw incidents in which Iraqi civilians were killed by U.S. fire"...The project was abandoned after one of the researchers was captured by Kurdish militiamen and handed over to U.S. forces. He was never seen again. But in less than two months' work, the group documented about 37,000 violent civilian deaths up to October 2003.
Don't build the Brampton super-jail for young people. That was the message from activists holding a quiet vigil at the Peace Garden in Nathan Phillips Square yesterday to mark the second anniversary of the release of findings from the David Meffe inquest.
"Yesterday, (Ontario Provincial Police) representative Monte Kahoko was at the site to inform the People that we are running out of time. Last night 2 van loads of men in army gear were spotted headed down Blossom Ave. in Caledonia toward 54 Hwy. Co-incidence??? This morning a scout observed a larger number of police vehicles outside of their current headquarters at the school on Unity Road. Today we were informed that the police plan to take action this week due to pressure from Caledonia residents and government officials."
A man aroused suspicion from a taxi driver taking him to the Durham Tees Valley Airport in northern England after the man requested the driver play music that sparked (a) terrorism fear.
In addition, as protesters dispersed on Friday evening, two people witnessed a police car stop outside of the back entrance of Nicole Freeborn’s apartment. The two then fled out the front entrance. This is how Guelph police respond to a protest about one of their members committing sexual assault.
In May 2005, three stunned and traumatized Yemeni men emerged from a covert network of US-run prisons scattered across continents. They had been transported from site to site on secret flights and detained since 2003 without any contact with the outside world. Amnesty International went to Yemen to interview them and the men's gruelling stories shed a glimmer of light on the murky system of captures, transfers and secret detention that has been developed by the USA in the "war on terror".
"Absolutely no regrets because, in the end, we got poor people in this town 2.7$ million dollars - put directly into their pockets - and we all see how much hope and relief this brought! If someone had asked me if netting 2.7 million was worth six months in jail, obviously I'd (have) answered "yup".
The issue is devastating poverty - kids going hungry. We didn't use rhetoric - we were always upfront - and we didn't hurt anyone. However, you can be honest and criticize and I'll take it in a spirit of concern." - Sam Kuhn, written before his arrest.
The potential for future clashes between management and labour groups could spell heady times for firms charged with protecting business interests, security companies say...Firms such as AFI International Group Inc. - a Milton, Ont.-based corporate security outfit that specializes in what it calls "labour dispute management services" - see a possible increase in labour strife and are betting the future for their business is rosy.
