Avoiding Global Bio-Apartheid

Peter Stoett, Toronto Star

It is a scenario with variations reproduced in countless science fiction
novels and films: A world bifurcated according to immunization. Those with
the proper vaccines or genetic codes live, insecurely, in protected areas;
those without are doomed to die in the forbidden lands.

Such a dystopian image may be less fictional, however, if the international
community does not establish clear ethical guidelines in its response to
pandemics. Of course, many would argue that the mixed approach to HIV/AIDS
already belies such a discriminatory response to killer diseases.

"Anarchism, Nudism, Naturism"

Carlos Ortega

Anarchism and the different Naturist views have always been related. This relationship was quite important at the end of the 1920s. The linking role played by the ‘Sol y Vida’ group was very important. The goal of this group was to take trips and enjoy the open air.

The Naturist athenaeum, ‘Ecléctico’, in Barcelona, was the base from which the activities of the group were launched. First ‘Etica’ and then ‘Iniciales’, which began in 1929, were the publications of the group, which lasted until the Spanish Civil War.

We must be aware that the naturist ideas expressed in them matched the desires that the libertarian youth had of breaking up with the conventions of the bourgeoisie of the time.

"Medical Fraud & the HIV-AIDS Deception"
Matthew Grace

Have you or a loved one been told that you are “HIV positive,” or that you have “AIDS?” If so, you do not want to miss Matthew Grace’s upcoming lecture, "Medical Fraud & The HIV-AIDS Deception." IT COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE and prevent you from a list of untold physical and emotional catastrophes for you and your family and friends. What modern medicine and the media have reported for the past 20 years concerning “AIDS” has been fraudulent, deceptive and downright criminal. You will learn why the ‘HIV tests’ are completely unreliable, and why the only people who are dying of “AIDS” are those who listen to their doctors. All of this material is completely verifiable, and supported by hundreds of highly respected doctors and medical experts but you will never come across this life saving information through any mainstream media outlet.

WOID #XII-42. Viva la Muerte

Paul T Werner, New York


The philosopher Hegel wrote of the ancient Egyptians: “The honor paid
to the dead [...] is not burial, but their perennial preservation as
corpses.” He might have been describing the “honor” paid to Terri
Schiavo by the US Congress. The poor woman’s been in a coma for
fifteen years, and thanks to the Republicans she’s on her way to
permanent mummyhood.


Doctor Says Yushchenko Poisoned With Dioxin

Susanna Loof, Associated Press

VIENNA, Austria — Dioxin poisoning caused the mysterious illness of Ukrainian presidential candidate Viktor Yushchenko, a doctor said Saturday, adding that the poison could have been put in his soup.

Yushchenko is now in satisfactory condition and dioxin levels in his liver have returned to normal, Dr. Michael Zimpfer, director of Vienna's private Rudolfinerhaus clinic, said at a news conference.

A series of tests run over the past 24 hours provided conclusive evidence of the poisoning, Zimpfer said.

"A Spine for Senator Specter, More BS From Bush"
Oread Daily

Yesterday, on the morning before World AIDS Day, AIDS activists from ACT UP Philadelphia delivered a giant spine to the home of Senator Arlen Specter to demand that he find the integrity and strength to stand up to the Bush Administration’s attacks on AIDS prevention programs as well as funding cuts against the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

“Arlen Specter talks a great talk about global AIDS, but last week he caved in to pressure from the Bush Administration and cut funding for the Global AIDS Fund,” said ACT UP’s Jose DeMarco. “This cowardly cut happened during the Global Fund’s Board meeting in Tanzania, where African heads of state and people with AIDS from all over the world were insisting that a new round of grants for life-saving programs be launched.”


"One Man's Trash…"

Nicole Bergot, Newsday

Freegans say they dine well — and make an important political statement — by eating food thrown away by stores and restaurants.

Leaning over a black garbage bag on a recent cool night, Adam Weissman uses his bare hands to scoop steaming brown rice and veggies into a plastic container. Alongside him, two friends pull muffins, pasta and sweet potatoes, still warm from a hot buffet, from the pile of trash bags outside Lifethyme, a natural foods market in Greenwich Village.

"Flu Troubles a Symptom of What Ails U.S."

André Picard, Toronto Globe and Mail

How refreshing to hear the word "vaccine" uttered, again and again, in
an election campaign. U.S. President George W. Bush and Senator John
Kerry have been sparring in recent days about the flu-vaccine shortage
that has sent a wave of panic across the United States.

Unfortunately, the shots the two presidential contenders exchanged have
had little to do with the sorry state of the U.S. public-health system,
and plenty to do with jingoistic, partisan politics.

"The Monster at the Door"

Mike Davis

As in a classic 1950s sci-fi thriller, our world is imperiled by a
terrifying monster. Scientists try to sound the alarm, but politicians
ignore the threat until its too late. Indifference ultimately turns into

The monster, of course, is H5N1, the lethal avian flu that first emerged
in 1997 in Hong Kong and is now entrenched — in an even more lethal
strain — in a half dozen Southeast Asian countries. It has recently
killed scores of farmers and poultry workers who have had direct contact
with sick birds.

"The Time in Court Has Finally Come For The 7-Year Squatters!


August 30th-September in court room 35, Elgin St. Ottawa.

At the superior court of Ontario we will be bringing three motions forward addressing how long our procedures have dragged on (26 months causing us much inconvience), our inability to access legal aid due to our decision to self defend, and our constitutional right to freedom of expression in a meaningful and relevant way.


From 27th-October 22nd in court room 35, Elgin St. Ottawa. We will be collectively self-defending ourselves against six indictable Offenses. Our struggle with the Crown to disclose all relevant evidence
continues, making our preparations for trial laborious and wearisome. Regardless of the obstacles we’ve faced, we remain dedicated to the process, and empowering ourselves via self-defence.
