With a new administration in Washington it will be a challenge to get the 'liberals' to hold Biden-Harris to the few 'progressive promises' they made during their campaign. Biden is bringing back many of Bush & Obama's neo-cons to head his foreign policy. I'll be on this case without hesitation.

US-UK violating international law at USAF Croughton near Oxford

 

 

Paul Mobbs organizes around the US space warfare base called Croughton near Oxford, England.

Paul writes: 

Just finished uploading two videos on USAF Croughton as part of the Global Network's Keep Space for Peace Week 2020


This video explores the long-standing issues of USAF Croughton  and the break-down of the international prohibitions on civilian killings and torture. Recently the media have been
complaining that the British Government intends to “break international law” as part of Brexit. In practise these complaints highlight the media’s historic silence when the British Government has routinely broken international humanitarian law before; in particular, our involvement in
foreign conflicts involving the USA and ‘Western’ interests.

[Near the end the video features footage from past protests at the base - but with the virus events this year have gone online.]

The script of the video, with extensive links to background reports features in the video, is available here -- http://www.fraw.org.uk/blog/video/20201003-rules_britannia.html
