J18 - Day Of Peace Around (And Under) The World

-----------

TODAY’S TOP SCOOPS

------------


State Of It: Martin Luther King Day

- What the world needs now… is a visionary who through moral and ethical soundness can lead this world’s peoples to a place of justice where regard for one another is exchanged irrespective of race, country, or religion. See... What The World Needs Now… [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0301/S00072.htm


The Real Deal: Facing Up To Financial Terror

- The Real Deal is that we do not need to give more power and money to the people who are stealing our money and freedoms and promoting organized crime and warfare. See... The Real Deal: Felix Rohatyn's Financial Holocaust [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0301/S00080.htm

Howard’s End: Tyranny And Oppression In NZ

- The rule of law has been abandoned when so-called "civilised" countries unlawfully invade another or, domestically, when a reviewer of ACC decisions believes that just because something is not authorised in the legislation it, "is of no relevance." Either way, tyranny and oppression of others is on the rise. Maree Howard writes. See... Howard’s End: Has the Rule of Law Been Abandoned [1]

J18: Rosalea Reports On Mass USA Anti-War Protests

- "George Bush, get a clue! The people of the world are not with you. George Bush, get a clue! The people of the world are not with you." The chant is swallowed up by a kind of Mexican-wave cheer that is passing from the back of the march up to the front… See... Stateside With Rosalea: What would Mary do? [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0301/S00064.htm
