Reasons to doubt the veracity of the ‘Steele dossier’ on Trump are still emerging

0

There is a parallel but lesser-publicized narrative running alongside the dominant media-favored Trump-Russia collusion story.[contfnewc]

It centers not on Trump and his alleged collusion with Moscow, but on Fusion GPS, the shady firm behind the infamous Steele dossier.

Stories about the 35-page ‘intelligence report’ written by former MI6 spy Christopher Steele very often do not make so much as a passing mention of Fusion GPS or its co-founder, former journalist Glenn Simpson, but both are crucial players in what could potentially be a scandal of massive proportions.

A recent investigation by online magazine Tablet using public sources to “trace the evolution” of the dossier has pieced together information which suggests central elements of the Russiagate story emerged “not from the British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s top-secret “sources” in the Russian government” but from a series of stories co-written by Simpson and his wife Mary Jacoby, which were published in the Wall Street Journal before Fusion GPS ever existed.

Call on HSBC to stop supporting the arms trade with Israel

0

The UK is complicit in Israel’s violations of Palestinian human rights through our arms trade. Despite the illegality of Israel’s occupation and apartheid system, the UK is one of the main arms exporters to Israel as well as a major purchaser of Israeli weapons and weapon technology. The chain of complexity extends to various corporate stakeholders who profit from Israel’s oppression of Palestinians, including UK high street bank, HSBC.

The Palestine Solidarity Campaign is currently working with a range of partner organisations on a national Stop Arming Israel campaign. The campaign is twofold: first, it asks the UK government to implement a two-way arms embargo with Israel, as long as it does not abide by international law and respect Palestinian rights. Second, the campaign aims to tackle corporate complicity by calling on HSBC to cut ties with companies trading weapons with Israel. HSBC is complicit of Israel’s crimes and violations of human rights through the bank’s investments in arms companies as well as through providing a range of financial services to these companies, such as loans.

In July 2017, the Stop Arming Israel coalition organised a week of action targeting HSBC, with 18 different actions taking place across the UK. Activists closed down factories and two branches of HSBC bank, held public meetings, took action online and distributed 1000’s of information flyers.

To go further, please download and read our factsheet on the UK-Israel arms trade, as well as the Deadly Investments report on UK banks’ complicity in Israel’s crimes against the Palestinians.

Philippines Tropical Storm Tembin kills more than 100 on Mindanao

0

More than 100 people are reported to have been killed as a tropical storm swept through the southern Philippines, with dozens more missing.

Storm Tembin brought flash flooding and mudslides to parts of Mindanao island.

Two towns badly hit were Tubod and Piagapo, where a number of homes were buried by boulders.

Tembin, with winds of up to 80km/h (50 mph), has now passed across Mindanao and is heading towards the southern tip of Palawan before moving further west.

The Philippines suffers regularly from deadly tropical storms, although Mindanao is not often hit.

Tembin, known as Vinta in the Philippines, started lashing Mindanao on Friday, with a state of emergency declared in some parts, including the Lanao del Norte and Lanao del Sur regions.

Disaster management officials quoted by the Philippine Daily Inquirer said there were at least 62 fatalities in Lanao del Norte, another 46 in Zamboanga del Norte and at least 18 in Lanao del Sur.

Tubod police officer Gerry Parami told the AFP news agency that there had been at least 19 deaths in the town, which is in Lanao del Norte.

“The river rose and most of the homes were swept away. The village is no longer there,” he said.

He said volunteers were digging through mud to try to recover bodies in the village of Dalama.
