Soziedad Alkoholica cleared by Spanish Judiciary. The logo "is similar" but that is "art".
international / consumer issues / news report Thursday November 30, 2006 23:02 by iosaf   image 1 image
The Basque political situation is not all about the "Peace Process". Many other things happen there too.

For years the group "Soziedad Alkoholica" used a logo on their albums of anarcho-punk garage angst music which was quite obviously a take on the logo used by ETA.

Their disks were withdrawn from sale by the largest department store chain & they were brought before the Judiciary to be investigated for "incitement to or glorification of terrorism". They've been cleared. They sing songs about victims too. read full story / add a comment

Isn't it strange that when in sniffing distance of getting back into power the local parties shy away from association with opposition to separate water charges. Is the thought of missing out on the double tax so hard to swallow. Maybe the truth is as suspected that all allong the likes of the DUP SF really agreed with the policy. read full story / add a comment

If a high dose of radiation element, Polonium 210, can be a tool of quick assassination, lower doses (as in typical cigarettes) are no less tools of homicide. Ask health officials, et al, why Po-210 is still permitted in cigarettes, with zero warning to anyone. Ask why smokers and Pub Proprietors bear the burdens of law, but the cig makers, ingredient suppliers, and complicit regulators go free.

Water is in the process of being privatised by stealth. Citizens must inform themselves regarding the ongoing process to hand our water over to a private multi-national company to make profit and learn from the experiences in other jurisdicitons where privatisation has brought hardship to communities and particulatly to the most vulnerable members. Voters should seek to have this placed on the issues list for the upcoming general election. read full story / add a comment

The country took one step closer to water privatisation recently with the announcement that Celtic Anglian Water have landed the contract for the Waste Water Treatment Plant, part of the Waterford Main Drainage Project. The Irish Examiner described them as ‘the international division of Anglian Water’. However, a quick scan of the company’s website tells a different story, Anglian water have only a 50% stake. ‘Celtic Anglian water’ (CAW), is listed on the NTR (national toll roads) website as a subsidiary company. Along with such shining lights of Irish capitalism as Greenstar, Airtricity, Bioverda, Irish Broadband and National Toll Roads themselves.

As a person with many disabilities I have spent over three years writing via net for broadband........all I end up is paying for broadband since 2004, then the 1892 account t that ran tadjacent and my own account.......was running up a bill, on the basis that I had no broadbank.
I write emails because I am phone phobic and limited to certain tasks a day otherwise it is confusion and I advised Disability section broadband all about these criteria. Now I am cancelled with aq bill. I lose out on the rent change paid by government.......

All I asked was that a service man put in the equipment as my intellectual abilities make it difficult!!!! But no........Service is Irish style, lots of advertising and no action or no thought. Has anyone else fallent into trap............ read full story / add a comment

I had several long, worried nights with one of my babies. She was having difficulty breathing. No temperature, runny nose, cranky upset crying…nothing I could take her to the A&E with. There was just a subtle change in her that gave me an instinctive and terrifying sense that she was forgetting to breathe.

The Ryder Cup is an occasion of horror to those who regard golf as a way of spoiling a good walk, or merely, an excuse to wear Rupert the Bear trousers in public. However, this major sporting event is coming to Ireland this September. There has been virtually no background investigation into the preparations.
