Late last year, Green Left Weekly's Kerryn Williams spoke to the assistant secretary of the Sudanese Communist Party (SCP), Suleman Hamid El Haj, in Khartoum about political developments in Sudan since the January 2005 signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA). The CPA ended the two-decade-long war between Sudan's central government in Khartoum and the south.

Suleman explained that while the SCP was sceptical of the CPA and criticised many of the agreement's elements, the party supported its signing. "Firstly because it stopped the war. There was so many lives lost and a lot of destruction in the south. The war was an obstacle to development. The government was spending US$2.5 million on the war every day.

Ahmed Saadat arrested by Iraeli police- by Anti-imperialist Camp

In last summer two hearings of a Israeli military court took place at the Ofer prison facility in the West Bank to try the secretary general of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), Ahmed Saadat, the biggest left wing faction.

Saadat refused to participate in the proceedings and to recognise the legitimacy of the tribunal as part of the Zionist occupation. The next hearing was announced for Mid January 2007.

Observers of the hearings reported that Saadat was brought to the court at early morning and had to wait in a metal container for hours. One could see the signs of the shackles on his arms. In both hearings he was almost beaten by the soldiers who tried to prevent him from speaking with the press. In one of the hearings they dragged the Al Jazeera journalist out of the room. The Ofer camp is known for cruel treatment and torture.

www.Unslaver.com and www.Oz.Unslaver.com

are pleased to announce the first support forum for all people.

Parental Alienation Syndrome is starting to find footing in the Courts.
Custodial Parents are often the culprits of this disasterous mental abuse to the children of a broken relationship.

Research by dedicated Doctors globally have shown that the damage left by the use of PAS against another parent are lifelong and can end in the child being tormented to the point of committing crime.

The Boards will be loaded with articles and original stories in the next few days – all it needs now is parents prepared to talk about their ongoing or prior problems with exspouses/partners, Departments, Police or other entities associated with Children and You – the Parent.

International Day of the African Child June 16, 2005-03-28

In Soweto, South Africa, thousands of black school children took to the streets in 1976, in a march more than half a mile long. To protest the inferior quality of their education and to demand their right to taught in their own language. Hundreds of young boys and girls were shot down: and in two weeks of protest that followed, more than a hundred people were killed and more than thousand were injured.

To honour the memory of those killed and the courage of all those who marched, the day of the African Child has been celebrated on 16 June every year since 1991, when it was first initiated by the Organization of African unity. The day draws attention to the lives of African children of today. This year’s theme is the need to ensure all children are registered at birth. (Please click on the "read more" link below)
