Reed Elsevier to stop organising arms fairs

Protest Campaign Against the Arms Trade (CAAT) success: Reed Elsevier to stop organising arms fairs

It was announced on Friday 1st June that Reed Elsevier will pull out of the arms trade and will no longer organise arms fairs around the world. The decision follows a high-profile campaign, coordinated by CAAT, which highlighted the incompatibility of Reed's involvement in the arms trade and their position as the number one publisher of medical and science journals and other publications.

CAAT welcomes the decision and applauds the board of Reed Elsevier for recognising the concerns of its stakeholders. The decision shows that the arms trade is an abhorrent activity and that it has no place within a reputable business.

In a statement, Chief Executive of Reed Elsevier Sir Crispin Davis, said "it has become increasingly clear that growing numbers of important customers and authors have very real concerns about our involvement in the defence exhibitions business. We have listened closely to these concerns and this has led us to conclude that the defence shows are no longer compatible with Reed Elsevier's position as a leading publisher of scientific, medical, legal and business content."

Protest 15 June 2007

THE Scottish parliament last night called on the UK Government to scrap plans to replace Trident.
SNP, Lib Dem, Green and some Labour MSPs joined forces to send a clear message to Prime Minister Tony Blair.
Tories opposed the call, while most Labour MSPs abstained.
In the vote, 71 MSPs called for Trident to be scrapped, 16 opposed the call and 39 abstained. Three did not vote.

Pit Stop Ploughshares Retrial Collapses
Posted by: roystpierre on Thursday, November 10, 2005 - 08:30 PM
Protest Excellent news from Dublin.(7/11/05)
Before the illegal invasion & bombing of Iraq, five members of the pacifist Catholic Worker movement made their way into Shannon Airport and non-violently disarmed a U.S. navy war plane in the early hours of February 3rd. 2003.
There first trial in March this year collapsed on the 6th day when the judge declared a mistrial.
On the 8th day of their retrial(Nov 7th) this retrial collapsed: "The CW5's 2 main statutory defences to the charges were ruled out as 'inadmissible' this morning by Judge Donagh McDonagh, who was then rather suddenly forced to 'pull the plug' and send the jury home after his relationship with a certain Mr. Bush was revealed to the Court by defence counsel."

Sock it to 'em, Brian - a piece of really good news
Posted by: roystpierre on Tuesday, August 02, 2005 - 08:50 PM
Protest e-mail from Global Women's Strike, 2 August, 2005,
'Join us on the Community Anti-War Picket & Open Mic, organised by the GlobalWomen's Strike, every Wednesday 5.30-7pm, on Parliament Square. Since February 2003, our continuing demonstration has been protesting EVERYWEDNESDAY against the war in Iraq and all wars. The new legislation (Serious Organised Crime & Police Act) aimed at removing Brian Haw who has been living in the Square for four years, and our picket there for two and a half years, came into force on 1st August. Some people have already been arrested for defying the ban which criminalises peaceful protest in and around the Square. Police can now impose draconian conditions on protests including: when and where it can take place; how long it can last; how many people can attend; how much noise can be made; and the number and size of banners and placards used. But last Friday, Brian Haw won in court again. The judges ruled that the Act does not cover 'continuing' protests such as Brian's, but only those starting after 1st August. We are also a "continuing" demonstration and that therefore we are also entitled to continue our protest. We are also entitled to visit Brian and support his efforts. Join us and Brian in Parliament Square this [& every] Wednesday as usual.'
One in the eye for Tony & co with their constant attemps to restrict civil liberties.

More public support for reopening the Colne -Skipton Railway
Posted by: roystpierre on Sunday, April 17, 2005 - 03:05 PM

The presentation of the results of the Trawden Forest Community Consultation, the first stage in formulating a parish plan, was held at Trawden Community Centre on Saturday, April 18th. The main concerns were facilities for young people, road safety and the environment. Tucked away among the forty or so questions in the questionnaire circulated to every household was this one: Would you support the reopening of the Colne-Skipton Railway line? 83.6% said yes (292 – yes, 41 no), which I think is a pretty good response seeing that we are 2.5 miles from the railway & that (except for hardy walkers) would necessitate a bus or car journey to access it. The questionnaire was distributed to 1061 households in Trawden, Wycollar, Winewall & Cottontree & had an excellent reponse rate: 33%

Protest ONSLAUGHT: The Attack On Fallujah
JNV Anti-War Briefing 69 (11 Nov. 2004)

The long-feared US ground assault on Fallujah began on Mon. 8 Nov., with
air and artillery attacks, including the dropping of eight 2,000-pound
bombs. “Usually we keep the gloves on,” said the head of the US 1st
Infantry Division’s Task Force 2-2 tactical operations command center. “For
this operation, we took the gloves off.” ‘Some artillery guns fired white
phosphorous rounds that create a screen of fire that cannot be extinguished
with water. Insurgents reported being attacked with a substance that melted
their skin.’ (Washington Post, 10 Nov., p. A01)
