UK officials could soon begin burying radioactive waste under some of the country’s national parks and areas of outstanding natural beauty, according to new plans backed by the British government.

Nuclear waste is currently being stored at above-ground facilities across the UK but it is hoped that deep geological burials will provide a long-term solution to the problem of mounting leftovers. The plans were published in January but have now been bolstered by the support of MPs on the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) Select Committee.

  • RT World News: Julian Assange ‘granted Ecuadorian ID’ required for passport, citizenship (10 Jan, 2018)

    “WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange has cryptically uploaded a picture of himself dressed in the national colors of Ecuador. The country’s media reports the whistleblower has been granted an Ecuadorian ID.

    Assange’s ID was issued on December 21, Ecuadorian outlet El Universo reports, citing ‘reliable sources’ and providing the civil registry number to check on the government website. The document number 1729926483, upon checking on the Internal Revenue Service, is indeed registered to one Julian Paul Assange.”

  • RT World News: Assange getting Ecuadorian ID could be ‘first step’ to diplomatic immunity – rights activist (10 Jan, 2018)

    “The Ecuadorian ID reportedly granted to Julian Assange could mark his first step to obtaining diplomatic immunity, as Ecuador wants to resolve Assange’s indefinite embassy stay, human rights activist Peter Tatchell told RT.

    ‘Granting an identity card is potentially the first step towards granting citizenship of Ecuador. And there is a possibility that he could be then granted a diplomatic status, which would give him diplomatic immunity,’ Tatchell, who is a human rights campaigner and the director of the Peter Tatchell Foundation, said. He added that diplomatic immunity would mean that the WikiLeaks co-founder would be ‘free to leave the embassy and travel to Ecuador and the British government would not be able to lay a finger on him.’

Binney, McGovern, Rowley: WikiLeaks and the Global Information War

“Monday, June 19 marks five years since Wikileaks founder Julian Assange sought asylum in Ecuador. In the half a decade since then, Assange has been prevented by British authorities from leaving the Ecuadorian embassy in London despite the UN finding last year that he has been the subject of arbitrary detention. His case and the campaign against Wikileaks have caused a global debate over whistleblowing that rages to this day.”

for now... but given the recent ISIS attacks on Tehran, I’m not sure what happens in the future.

RT: You’re a whistleblower yourself. What can you tell us about your personal experience? Is it a tough job?

AM [Annie Machon, former MI5 intelligence officer] : Yes, I am a whistleblower from the old school from the 1990s, the analog-era effectively. But I worked for MI5 for six years as an intelligence officer, and it was there that I met my former partner and colleague, a man called David Shayler. We saw so many things going wrong at that time - only within six years - that we decided to resign and to go public. We tried to raise our concerns on the inside, and we were just told to ‘follow orders.’ So they had no will to reform or will to correct mistakes that were committing crimes in secret.

So we went public. And under the laws of the UK, we also faced automatic arrest and imprisonment for speaking out about the crimes of the spies. So we fled the country, we went on the run for a month around Europe; we went and lived in hiding for a year in France, and we lived in exile for another two years. I was arrested; many of our friends, family, supporters, and journalists involved in the case were arrested. Shayler himself went to prison twice. First of all, when the British failed to extradite him from France in 1998 to stand trial under the Official Secrets Act of 1989, and then after he returned voluntarily to face trial in 2000. Of course, he was convicted, because there was no legal defense under the Official Secrets Act, and he went to prison again. So we both paid a very high price… to expose the crimes of the spies.

Julian Assange case: Sweden dropped the investigation!

  • @wikileaks: BREAKING: Sweden has dropped its case against Julian Assange and will revoke its arrest warrant. Background: twitter.com/wikileaks/stat…

  • @wikileaks: UK states it will arrest Assange regardless & refuses to confirm or deny whether it has already received an extradition request from the US.

  • @wikileaks: UK refuses to confirm or deny whether it has already received a US extradition warrant for Julian Assange. Focus now moves to UK.

  • @JulianAssange: Detained for 7 years without charge by while my children grew up and my name was slandered. I do not forgive or forget.

  • @JulianAssange: justice4assange.com

  • @avilarenata: FINALLY Sweden will do what @UNHumanRights ordered more than a year ago: End the Arbitrary Detention of #Assange. UK must cooperate

  • @avilarenata: UK insists violating Assange Human Rights. Exercising right to asylum is not Jumping Bail. news.met.police.uk/news/statement… Australia must act.

  • @avilarenata: #Australia must act to protect its citizen @JulianAssange but they do not do anything. Why? Political persecution. Defend his asylum.

  • @avilarenata: Jumping bail they say. Seeking asylum we say.

  • @avilarenata: Pathetic attempt by Swedish prosecution authority to justify their incompetence and arbitrary treatment. Reality = it was political.

  • @avilarenata: #Assange This woman claims to work for justice. Refused to advance an investigation for 7 years. Now she blames #Ecuador on her incompetence

  • @avilarenata: #Ecuador cooperated to the fullest with Swedish authorities. Incredible that an arbitrary detention conducted by Sweden is blamed on them.

  • @avilarenata: Don't expect gentle treatment of the press on #Assange case but don't be mislead by them. Today's victory evidences an arbitrary prosecution

  • @avilarenata: #Assange case Incredible that no one is questioning the refusal of Marianne Ny to conduct telephone interview or visit UK during YEARS.

  • @avilarenata: Journalists reporting #Assange case, the prosecutor had 5 alternatives to interrogate him. She arbitrarily refused to conduct interview 5 yr

  • @avilarenata: Dear media, if you want to "battle #FakeNews, be congruent and check your facts while reporting about @JulianAssange case.

  • @avilarenata: Journos reporting on @JulianAssange case: the alleged offense in UK is disputed and an excuse to keep him captive

    COURAGE - Wikileaks Staff Legal Expenses

    The WikiLeaks official legal and public defence fund is raised and run by the Courage Foundation. The fund is for legal fees, and does not go to WikiLeaks' core operations.

  • @avilarenata: @Snowden and others urge @POTUS to drop case against @JulianAssange and @wikileaks

    Edward Snowden and others urge Trump to drop case against Assange

  • @avilarenata: Next in @JulianAssange case: defend his asylum. In today´s world ignoring political asylum will be an epic mistake. Stand in solidarity.

The Rendlesham Forest Incident

The Rendlesham Forest Incident, also known as ‘Britain’s Roswell’, is undoubtedly one of the best documented and most significant military encounters with a Craft of Unknown Origin or UFO. It is also a case that involved very credible witnesses, trained (USAF) United States Air Force observers and security police.

The incident spanned three days in 1980. Rendlesham Forest is a large pine forest, east of Ipswich, in Suffolk, England. Nearby are the twin NATO air bases, RAF Bentwaters and RAF Woodbridge; at the time both bases were being leased to the United States Air Force. Several UFO incidents, including multiple-witness sightings by military personnel, ground traces, and radioactive anomalies were reported from Rendlesham forest.

According to USAF security patrolmen on duty, “the object was described as being metallic in appearance and triangular in shape, approx. 2-3 meters across the base… it illuminated the entire forest with a white light, and had a pulsing red light on top and a bank(s) of blue lights underneath.” In November, 2002, the British Ministry of Defense released the “Rendlesham File” of documents related to and confirming the Rendlesham Forest incident.

  • UK police clash with anti-austerity protesters (PressTV, May 27 2015)

    “UK police have clashed with protesters in Westminster protesting the austerity programs of the all-out Conservative government of Prime Minister David Cameron.

    The protesters say the government’s austerity measures and its plan to repeal the Human Rights Act are threatening the country.

    Some arrests have been made as students from across the United Kingdom scuffled with police. The march coincides with the state opening of the new parliament where the Conservatives will officially form a new government.

    There are reports that similar rallies are underway in other cities across the country including Liverpool, a traditional hotbed of anti-Conservative sentiment.”
