    Scoop Report and Photoessay: Tonga Faces Crossroad

    Twenty four hours after rioters tore through Tonga's capital town looting and burning, leaving a sea of blazing buildings in their wake, New Zealand's Helen Clark said there were two futures on offer for the Pacific. "One is poverty and conflict; the other is peace and development." The comment accurately paints a crossroad for Tonga, for Solomon Islands, Fiji, for Melanesia in general. The comment acknowledges how accurate the United States' most recent handle for the Pacific is: The Arc of Uncertainty. See... Scoop On Assignment: Tonga Faces Crossroad [1]

The action will also affect three private labs and the New Zealand Blood Service. See... Mediation Scheduled For Lab Workers Talks [1]

    Gordon Campbell: On The Politicising Of The War On Drugs In Sport
