Radical antifascist computer hackers, from an “international task force” Datenantifa (literally: data-antifa), claim that they have hacked the forum www.bloodandhonour.com. In a press release on the German indymedia page from August 29, 2008, they have provided links to roughly 800 MB of data, that are said to be a full mirror of the web forum with its 31,948 registered users. The German newspaper Frankfurter Rundschau has evaluated the files and states that 500 sets of data would belong to users from Germany. (Bild, a German tabloid, gives the number of 1200.) The Blood and Honour network is illegal in Germany, and this data, although obtained illegally and not usable in court, will very likely lead to criminal investigations.

In the press release the hackers said that “As a part of our struggle against the fascist movement we hacked the forum of: www.bloodandhonour.com!” They attribute their success to a cooperation with friendly groups “domestic and abroad,” and emphasize that the databases of the server were retrieved in “laboriously prepared cloak-and-dagger operation” that involved a “house search”.

Günther Hoffmann, from the Center for Democratic Culture commented that “some people in the far-right extremist scene are going to get very nervous, including activists from the NDP,” as a result of the incident. Katharina König from the Action Alliance against the Right in Jena said that there was now “evidence that Blood and Honour concerts continue to take place in Germany.” Furthermore the Datenantifa had secured so-called “red-watch-lists”, on which Neo-Nazis gather information on their political enemies.

Ray Nagin, the mayor of New Orleans, Louisiana has ordered a mandatory evacuation of the city ahead of Hurricane Gustav.

Nagin states that residents “need to be scared” in what he calls “the mother of all storms”. Residents are to be out of the city by Sunday evening. Even before the announcement, tens of thousands of people had already began to flee the city on Saturday. Nagin also stated that as many as 10,000 people were taken out of the city by buses they provided, trains and planes.

“This storm is so powerful and growing more powerful every day. I’m not sure we’ve seen anything like this,” said Nagin to reporters during a press conference Saturday.

“If you are stubborn enough, if you are not taking this as seriously as we need you to take it, and if you decide to stay; you are on your own. Anyone who decides to stay, I’ll say it like I said it before Katrina: make sure you have an axe, because you will be carving your way, or busting your way out of your attic to get on your roof with waters that you will be surrounded with in this event,” said Nagin during a press conference yesterday.

Members of the Louisiana National Guard prepare for operations

Along with the issuing of the mandatory evacuation order, Nagin detailed a dawn-till-dusk curfew and said that emergency services would be unavailable after 4am Monday, south of Highway 22. He continued, explaining evacuation plans for the 500,000 residents of the New Orleans area, including the use of contraflow lanes on major highways and the use of over 1000 buses to aid the evacuation effort. He also detailed the relief preparations including over 1500 National Guard personnel being deployed in the area and the medical care provisions.

In 2005, New Orleans was devastated when levees broke during Hurricane Katrina. Nearly 2,000 people were killed when the storm made landfall along Louisiana’s coast.

Silvio Berlusconi made the deal with his Libyan counterpart

The government of Italy has agreed to pay Libya US$5 billion as compensation for its occupation of the country from 1911 to 1943. The agreement was reached between the Italian Prime Minister, Silvio Berlusconi, and Baghdadi Mahmudi, Berlusconi’s Libyan counterpart.

“It is a material and emotional recognition of the mistakes that our country has done to yours during the colonial era,” said Berlusconi after arriving in Libya. “This agreement opens the path to further cooperation.”

“The accord will provide for $200 million a year over the next 25 years through investments in infrastructure projects in Libya,” Berlusconi continued. “It is my duty, as a head of government, to express to you in the name of the Italian people our regret and apologies for the deep wounds that we have caused you.”

In return for providing compensation, Italy has asked that Libya attempts to reduce the number of immigrants illegally moving from Libya to Italy.

As a result of the deal, the Libyan government has named August 30 “Libyan-Italian Friendship Day”.

The deal has also made some people ask if the United Kingdom should provide compensation to Nigeria for it’s colonisation of the country.

Dr. Eyimofe Atake from the Senior Advocate of Nigeria commented on this issue: “To be able to answer that question, one needs to know exactly why compensation was paid and the circumstances in which compensation was paid. One needs to know the fact of the case between the Italians and the Libyans and how the issue for the payment of compensation arose. No two cases are necessarily similar, so in the absence of the facts and circumstances that led to the payment of compensation, it will be totally speculative to say if Nigeria could ask for compensation or be paid compensation by Britain.”

“In any event, under international law, Britain and Italy are separate and distinct states. They are sovereign states. Consequently, the British government is not bound by the acts of the Italian government. The decision of the Italian government is personal to them based on their peculiar circumstance and facts, which have nothing to do with the British government and the Nigerian government,” Atake continued.

Ancient Code

Ancient Code – New Movie – release announced through an anonymous website owned by The Ancient Code Team on 08/08/08. According to the site, they are currently filming throughout Europe for their project tipped to be bigger than ‘The Secret’, ‘What The Bleep’ and ‘The Da Vinci Code’ combined.

At the moment the content as well as the two directors names are being kept secret, hence not a lot of information is currently available. Reading between the lines, the film promises to examine warfare, end times and natural disasters in relation to the history of civilisation itself, presenting new answers derived from the ‘ancient code’ that has been embeded in our landscape and mythology, answers that they say will affect everyone.

You can visit http://www.ancientcode.com for more information, to join the mailing list and if you are a Cinema, Festival, Press or Media representative, where you can find out more about the film as news breaks.

Ancient Code describes the film as ‘a real film made by leading researchers with real answers.’ – www.ancientcode.com

Riot police called to break up \”Facebook party\” in Camperdown, Sydney.

Filed under: Australia,Cleanup,Crime and law,Disputed,Sydney — admin @ 5:00 am

Sunday, August 31, 2008

An illegal dance party at an abandoned warehouse in Sydney’s inner-west over night resulted in a police response of up to fifty officers from the Public Order and Riot squad, Dog Squad, Police Rescue and Polair, called to break-up the gathering after a call from a concerned neighbour.

As many as fifteen hundred party-goers were dispersed from the dance party, which police suspect had been publicised through popular social networking site, Facebook, and was complete with 3 levels of DJs, a reggae band, laser shows, and other visual effects.

Police initially attended the party at around 12:30 a.m., attempting to close it due to fire safety concerns. Many refused to leave, and officers were forced to call for back-up after bottles were thrown in their direction. Parramatta Road – one of Sydney’s busiest main streets – was closed until 3 a.m in both directions while the huge police contingent including police helicopters – which some have called over-reactive – filed members of the party out of the building.

No one was injured, although one man was arrested after allegedly lashing out at an officer. Police inquiries into the event are still continuing.

The Central Bank of The Gambia has predicted that Gambia will grow by more than 6.5 percent during the year of 2008. According to the report that announced the findings, this level of growth is due to a “strong rebound in agricultural output and the continued growth in the services and construction sectors.”

The body for regulating advertisements in the United Kingdom, the Advertising Standards Authority has described an iPhone advertisement as misleading and banned it due to the fact it claims that “all the parts of the internet are on the iPhone”.

The authority said this was misleading as neither Adobe Flash Player nor Java, both of which are used on many web pages, are available on the iPhone.
