How NHS staff are fighting back against the ‘hostile environment’

17 May 2019 — OurNHS

The Daily Mail’s claims of our success are sadly premature – but the “patients not passports” campaign is indeed growing.

James Skinner Akram Salhab

Patients not Passports

With typical hyperbole and disregard for accuracy, the Daily Mail published a headline earlier this month claiming that MPs had ‘caved in’ to ‘left-wing doctors and scrap[ped] plans to stop ‘health tourists’ coming to Britain for treatment they’re not entitled to’. Making no reference to the well documented harm caused by the policy, the piece focused instead on the alleged cost of so called ‘health tourists’ to the NHS, repeating a favourite refrain of a Government and media adept at directing the anger at enforced austerity towards migrants.

Reporters Without Borders accepts prize from journalist-killing regime By Ali Abunimah

29 May 2019 — Electronic Intifada

Reporters Without Borders is facing sharp criticism for accepting a prize from a regime that murders journalists.

The group, often known by its French initials RSF, received the Dan David Prize for “defending democracy” earlier this month at a Tel Aviv University ceremony attended by Israeli President Reuven Rivlin.

On the OPCW response to the leaked engineers’ assessment

29 May 2019 — Tim Hayward

On 13 May 2019 the Working Group on Syria, Propaganda and Media (WGSPM) published a document received from an anonymous whistleblower at the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). The document’s findings run counter to the conclusion of OPCW’s official final report (1 March 2019) on the 2018 chemical incident in Douma – the one cited as pretext for French, US and UK forces to fire 103 missiles into Syria.

Assange Is Reportedly Gravely Ill, And Hardly Anyone’s Talking About It by Caitlin Johnstone

29 May 2019 — Caitlin Johnson

Julian Assange’s Swedish lawyer Per Samuelson has told the press that “Assange’s health situation on Friday was such that it was not possible to conduct a normal conversation with him.”

This jarring revelation has been reported by a small handful of outlets, but only as an aside in relation to Sweden refusing Samuelson’s request for a postponement of a scheduled hearing regarding Assange’s detention en absentia for a preliminary investigation of rape allegations. The fact that the imprisoned WikiLeaks founder is so ill that he can’t converse lucidly is itself far more significant than the postponement refusal, yet headlines mentioning Samuelson’s statement focus on the Swedish case, de-emphasizing the startling news from his lawyer.

‘The Dancing Israelis’

New information released by the FBI has brought fresh scrutiny to the possibility that the “Dancing Israelis,” at least two of whom were known Mossad operatives, had prior knowledge of the attacks on the World Trade Center.

UK ambulance staff quitting in record numbers By Ben Trent

29 May 2019 — WSWS

Tens of thousands of ambulance staff have quit Britain’s National Health Service (NHS).

The figures, uncovered by a Labour Party-led investigation, are staggering. Fully 33,414 paramedics, technicians and office staff have quit their jobs since 2010—the year the Conservatives came to power in coalition with the Liberal Democrats.
