February 27, 2011 by legitgov

Personal details in UK census to be processed by US form which stole Obama's student loan records concerns have been raised about the spiralling cost, which is expected to reach almost £500 million. 26 Feb 2011 Personal details collected in the 2011 national census will be processed in a plant run by an American firm whose staff were prosecuted for stealing President Obama's student loan records. Every householder in the UK is required to fill out the questionnaire next month, with those failing to comply facing a £1,000 fine or even jail. UK Data Capture was formed by Vangent and Edexcel in 2007 specifically for the UK census, which will take place on March 27... The company is sub-contracted by Lockheed Martin UK, a subsidiary of another US firm, which is in charge of managing the census. There is already a campaign to boycott the census because Lockheed Martin is an arms manufacturer responsible for Trident.

Stand Up for Alaska's Polar Bears

February 26, 2011 by legitgov

Stand Up for Alaska's Polar Bears 26 Feb 2011 Polar bears in the Hudson Bay are in danger of dying out completely as global warming melts away the ice they depend on to hunt for food.

Big polluters are doing everything they can to continue dumping unlimited global warming pollution into the air. Right now, they are attacking the Clean Air Act and Environmental Protection Agency--at the expense of the future of polar bears. Take Action! Help protect Alaska's polar bears by editing and sending a message to your members of Congress and President Obama, urging them to oppose big polluter plans to undermine the Clean Air Act.

February 26, 2011 by legitgov

Iraq dictatorship uses live bullets at protests, 19 killed --Security forces used tear gas, water cannons, sound bombs, and live bullets to disperse crowd. 25 Feb 2011 At least 19 people were killed in Iraq on Friday as tens of thousands defied an official curfew to join a nationwide "Day of Rage," echoing protests that have roiled the Middle East and North Africa since January. Protesters expressed anger and rage at local leaders as well as at US-installed Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, storming provincial government offices in several cities and calling for more jobs, electricity and clean water, better pensions and medical care. [Gee, I wonder where the US-installed Exxon-BP-Monsanto dictatorship in Iraq procured *sound bombs* to use on demonstrators? Hmm... So: There's no money for al-Maliki to get the electricity running, but there's money to buy sound bombs? Hopefully, the protesters will overthrow the US-installed dictatorship in Iraq and nationalize the oil industry, as in the days of Saddam Hussein.That's why the USociopaths invaded: they couldn't stand the fact that the Iraqi people benefited from the oil and Bush-Cheney wanted it for their corpora-terrorist overlords. --LRP]

Another Runaway General: Army Deploys Psy-Ops on U.S. Senators By Michael Hastings 23 Feb 2011 The U.S. Army illegally ordered a team of soldiers specializing in "psychological operations" to manipulate visiting American senators into providing more troops and funding for the war, Rolling Stone has learned -- and when an officer tried to stop the operation, he was railroaded by military investigators. The orders came from the command of Lt. Gen. William Caldwell, a three-star general in charge of training Afghan troops -- the linchpin of U.S. strategy in the war. Over a four-month period last year, a military cell devoted to what is known as "information operations" at Camp Eggers in Kabul was repeatedly pressured to target visiting senators and other VIPs who met with Caldwell.
