Czech president signs Lisbon Treaty/EU Dirty Deal regarding human rights (tags)
With the EU guarantee to the Czech president, that the Czech State should not be exposed to property claims of expelled Germans after World War II, the EU not only implicitly consents with ethnical cleansings, it is also highly hypocritical, since the EU regularly points a finger to human rights violating countries like Sudan, Myanmar and Iran It is high time the EU should look in its own mirror, among else with regard to police abuse, racism and violation of the rights of migrants and real or alleged terrorsuspects

Czech Greens enter right-wing government (tags)
Following the Czech parliamentary elections of June 2 and 3, the Green Party is now preparing to join the right-wing government of the arch-conservative Citizens Party (ODS). The Greens have now entered an Eastern European parliament for the first time, with Strana Zelenych (SZ) receiving 6.3 percent of the vote. Clearly, the Green Party in Prague is beginning its political odyssey at the point it left off in Germany—as a governing party; but this time no longer in alliance with the Social Democrats, but instead with politically conservative and right-wing parties.
WILL FALLUJAH BE USA'S LIDICE (town leveled by Nazis to avenge SS officer)? (tags)
Paul Bremer, the U.S. Protector of Iraq, has promised reprisals for the "murder" of four "civilian contractors" in Fallujah, Iraq. U.S. officials have called the killings "ghoulish." Beware another Lidice -- the Czech village liquidated and leveled by the German Nazis in 1942 to pay back the killing by Czech patriots of Reinhard Heydrich, chief of the occupation of Czechoslovakia. About "ghoulish," remember that President Bush's grandfather robbed the grave of Apache chief Geronimo and took his skull to Yale's Skull and Bones Society, to which both President Bushes belonged, where it was (and still may be) used in rituals. Let's don't get too self-righteous or bloodthirsty.

urgent: S26 outlawed / open letter to V Havel (tags)
Prague authorities have revoked permits for all street demonstrations on September 26th. This obvious abuse of power probably won't stop the thousands of activists gearing up to disrupt the IMF/World Bank meetings next week. Activists from around the globe can also help out by signing the open protest letter to Czech President Vaclav Havel (once political prisoner himself), and by faxing it to his office and/or sending email. ©copyLEFT
