For months, we?ve been treated to morbid ?daily death numbers? ? but for only one cause of death. Perhaps if these figures had been reported for all causes of death, people?s risk perceptions would be less skewed.

Kick Raytheon out of Wales/Solidarity with the Raytheon 9

Welsh anti-war movement takes to the Streets again to protest Raytheon and the Merchants of Death

UK government spending £14 billion on building a huge, privatised Military Academy in Wales to train the latest recruits to the 'war on terror' and any foreign militaries prepared to pay for the privilege. Paid for by our taxes, the profits will pour into the coffers of the arms companies like RAYTHEON hired to run it. For more info. And the 4 main parties in Wales support it.

DEMONSTRATE - 5.30 - 6.30, Tuesday 27th May, Transport House (T&G Building), 1 Cathedral Road, Cardiff (this is where the office of the First Minister of Wales, Rhodri Morgan is based).
Called by the STOP THE UK ST ATHAN MILITARY ACADEMY CAMPAIGN and CARDIFF STOP THE WAR COALITION

Lebanon burns - Raytheon earns
Palestine burns - Raytheon earns
Iraq burns - Raytheon earns
Kick Raytheon out of Wales -

Solidarity with the Raytheon 9!

Raytheon - banned by Liverpool Council, the Norwegian and Belgian government, manufacturer of cluster bombs and lethal weapons - has been welcomed to Wales by our politicians with barely a murmer of dissent. They are a key part of the new, privatised UK Military Academy being built in
Wales.

Let's be clear, Raytheon are directly implicated in war crimes: In 2003, a Raytheon device hit the Shu'ale market in Baghdad in 2003, killing at least 62 civilians. In 2006 a Raytheon device hit Qana in Lebanon in 2006, killing at least 28 civilians, including 16 children.

By welcoming Raytheon, our politicians are complicit with war crimes. Rhodri Morgan, First Minister of Wales has defended Raytheon and attacked anti-war campaigners as liars.

Any thing we can do in Wales to frustrate the merchants of death can only be of help to those on the receiving end of war.

RAYTHEON 9 TRIAL BEGINS

The trial of the "Raytheon Nine" anti-war activists started this week in Belfast, and will last for up to six weeks.

The nine anti-war protesters, occupied and shut down the Derry offices of Raytheon, the fifth biggest arms manufacturer in the world, on Wednesday 9 August 2006 during Israel's war on Lebanon.

The action was part of a wider protest at Raytheon's complicity in the Israeli bombardment of Lebanon and the ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

UNMASKING THE SYSTEM - EXPOSING WELSH POLITICIANS LIES ABOUT RAYTHEON

Who has the power to frame reality-- the power to describe things as they really are, the power to make clear the power relationships in a community, family or country?

To unmask the truth of a situation is to expose the fraudulence of the glowing phrases, the lofty claims, and the false promises of oppressive authorities and to make clear the human rights, the community obligations and the just relationships which the reality of the situation requires.
