Budget 2006: Peter Harris And Pals Discuss Budget's Social Impact

- While many in the media were obsessed with haranguing Dr Cullen for tax cuts – presumably to enable them to take that extra overseas holiday– Scoop rose before any self respecting crow the day after Budget 2006 and attended Public Health Association's annual post Budget brekky to see if there were other stories around. Dissecting the Budget from a social perspective at the PHA's post budget breakfast were four high profile speakers: Rod Oram, Peter Harris, Cindy Kiro and Debbie Te Whaiti. See...

    Australia: Howard Upsets the Nuclear Balance in the Pacific

    - The Prime Minister's advocacy of an expanded nuclear industry in Australia sends a message of approval for Indonesia to become a nuclear power too, Greens leader Bob Brown said today. "Australia and our region are essentially nuclear-free. Mr Howard is abandoning that security to grab uranium profits and facilitate an Australian role in nuclear enrichment," Senator Brown said.

    Palestine: Who’s Guilty?

    - THOSE WHO listened to the radio news last Saturday heard a stunning report: that Muhammad Abu-Ter and Uri Avnery had barricaded themselves together in a private home in a-Ram. The very fact that these two - the No. 2 man of Hamas and the notorious Israeli leftist - were together was already shocking enough. But the fact that they had invaded the home of an innocent Palestinian family and barricaded themselves there, like criminals fleeing from the police, was even more staggering. This false news item would, perhaps, deserve no special mention, if it were not typical of the whole media coverage, not only of this specific demonstration, but of all joint demonstrations of Israeli peace activists and Palestinians.

    Egypt: It's Time to Tell Mubarak, 'Enough!'

    - As Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's government brutally cracks down on Egyptians campaigning for democracy and political reform in Cairo, global business leaders are gathering today in the Egyptian resort of Sharm el- Sheikh to discuss "the new positive dynamics in the region's politics" at the World Economic Forum's annual Middle East meeting. These corporate leaders should use their influence to let Mubarak, who will open the forum, know that his systematic repression of peaceful dissent will alienate not only the human rights community, but also the investors whose support is critical to Egypt's future.

    Solomons: John Roughan Assesses The Success Of RAMSi


    - Whether the Solomons was a failed state or not, there is no doubt that in the hour of our greatest need, the Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands (RAMSI) failed us. The heroics of police personnel, ordinary citizens, both men and women, fortunately spared the nation the agony of mourning its dead. Startling as it was, during the whole two-day riot--Black Tuesday and Black Wednesday--not a single person died although some experienced narrow escapes. But the bottom line remains: the rowdy crowd that surrounded Parliament Building spun out of control and became an uncontained, rock throwing mob. What happened? See... John Roughan: RAMSi failed us!

    Human Rights: United Nations Seeks Closure Of Gitmo – Again

    - For the second time this year, a United Nations body has chastised the United States for its torture of prisoners and told it to close its prison camp at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. In February, the UN Human Rights Commission criticized the US government for force-feeding hunger strikers there - calling it torture - and urged the United States to "close the Guantánamo Bay detention facilities without further delay."

    - The Labour-led government is moving to stop any abuse of the visa system by guardians of foreign fee-paying students, says Immigration Minister David Cunliffe.
