black town of toward god it's been ethnically totally cleansed by the promenade to rebels and these are the type of scandalous things that are going on that none of the western media want to report but my sources on the ground and i cross check my sources on the ground in libya tell me that money will leave is still a strong resistance against the pro nato forces and nato itself a very important border town between two new zealand and algeria has been captured by gadhafi as a resistance a town called got and also could bomb itself out between the algerian and libyan border is also surrounded by gadhafi as resistance against nato so really what we have in libya is a situation i came to afghanistan but the difference being is that gadhafi is arguably a lot more popular than the taliban's national resistance is and was. and the situation's heating up and now they're restless region while palestine fosters hopes for u.n. statehood israel is of proving more settlements on occupied territory coming up later if there are special report about israeli peace activists who are taking

your religious jew killing another jew and not you know the way they really did it . the right to protest is something the u.k. has long upheld and a fan of but now as the british government slaps a month long marching band on several london districts there are those who argue that civil liberties are under attack article or am it has more. the view of workers activists on the home office ban on marching it's clear it's an attack on the basic democratic rights in this country three september in six areas of london anyone marching like these people to last winter is liable to be arrested and fined or even imprisoned. the ban was prompted by plans by the sea muslim english defense league here in luton in february to march through tower

renowned for its powerful union organizations but the ban gives police the ultimate power to step in and arrest demonstrators merely for exercising their right to speak out against the government and that's a dangerous precedent to set a bit arty london. and that's all the news for now but i'll be back with a recap of our top stories in just a few moments and stay with us.
