Full meltdown in full swing? Japan maximum nuclear alert

In Japan, radiation levels in the seawater near the Fukushima plant continue to rise. They’re now more than 3.5 thousand times higher than normal.

Radioactive material has also been detected in soil at the facility. Japan’s government described the situation as serious and unpredictable. Workers have been unsuccessfully trying to restore the plant’s cooling system, in what is now the worst atomic crisis since Chernobyl.

 There’s been some debate over whether there are any similarities between the two events. RT talks to Professor Christopher Busby, of the European Committee on Radiation Risks.

Japanese government is considering the construction of a containment shell at the damaged Fukushima nuclear power plant.

It would be aimed at averting further radiation leaks in a crisis that is still described as ‘grave’. The plan would involve the three most badly damaged reactors being covered with hi-tech material.

 The level of radiation measured in sea water near the site, is now said to be around three and a half thousand times higher than normal.

Workers have been unsuccessfully trying to restore the cooling system at the facility, in what is now the worst atomic crisis since Chernobyl. RT spoke to nuclear energy expert Lars Polmeier, who says there are parallels with that disaster 25 years ago

But even after that’s finished, many will still have nowhere to go, as RT’s Igor Ogorodnev found out.

 ‘Mad Max’ Reality: Video of Libya rebels firing rockets on desert frontline

From: RussiaToday | Mar 31, 2011 | 238 views

 Rebel fighters continued to battle forces loyal to the Libyan regime between the cities of Ajdabiya and Brega on Thursday. Rebels were seen launching rocket artillery from the back of vehicles at the frontline of the conflict between the two forces. Shortly after, rebel soldiers were seen driving away, apparently on the retreat after bombardment from forces loyal to Moammar Gadhafi.

 Like Gaddafi’s troops force swift rebel retreat From: Euronews | Mar 31, 2011 | 310 views Libyan rebels are in full-blown retreat as Gaddafi’s forces use their superior firepower and military know-how to make gains along the country’s east coast. The towns of Nawfaliyah, Bin Jawad and Ras Lanuf fell in quick succession. The Libyan army outflanked rebel forces, which lack training, disciplne and leadership. Western aircraft flew over the battlefield for a while, but there was no evidence of any airstrikes on Gaddafi’s forces. It appears that anti-Gaddafi militia are unable to make inroads without Western air support

Hague urges Libyans to follow Koussa’s lead and exit

Euronews | Mar 31, 2011 

 Britain has hailed the defection of Libya’s Foreign Minister Moussa Koussa as evidence that Gaddafi’s regime is starting to collapse. The UK’s foreign minister said the move would help others abandon the Libyan leader: “We encourage those around Gaddafi to abandon him and embrace the better future for Libya, that allows political transition and real reform, that meets the aspirations of the Libyan people,” William Hague told reporters.

 Troops loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi shelled rebels heading west on the coastal road to Sirte on Tuesday, forcing them to pull back to the small town of Bin Jawad. The retreat reversed a rapid, two-day advanced that saw the pro-democracy fighers push from Ajdabiya to Nawfaliya, where they met strong resistance. Gaddafi assault reclaims towns as rebels flee

Libyan rebels are in full retreat under attack from Colonel Gaddafi’s forces, losing control of more towns along the Mediterranean coast. Two days ago the rebels were heading westwards, delightedly chasing Gaddafi’s troops across the desert. Now they are fleeing in the opposite direction back eastwards. They have lost Bin Jawad and the important oil town of Ras Lanuf; they are also in retreat from Brega.

Open Letter to Mr. Y.B Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak,

Prime Minister of Malaysia

 

Geneva-Paris, March 30, 2011 

Re: Judicial harassment of 52 HINDRAF and HRP members and obstacles to freedom of peaceful assembly

Your Excellency,

The Observatory for the Protection of Human Rights Defenders, a joint programme of the World Organisation Against Torture (OMCT) and the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH), strongly condemns the judicial harassment of 54 members of Hindu Rights Action Force (HINDRAF) and its sister organisation, the Human Rights Party (HRP), two organisations aiming at defending the rights of Hindu and other marginalised minorities in Malaysia, following their organisation of and participation in a peaceful march against racism on February 27, 2011.

 

Between March 1 and 3, 2011, the 54 human rights defenders were charged by courts of different cities with “acting as members of an unlawful society” or “participating in assemblies of an unlawful society”, under Section 43 of the Societies Act of 1966[1], which states that “any person who is or acts as a member of an unlawful society or attends a meeting of an unlawful society (…) shall be guilty of an offence and shall be liable, on conviction, to imprisonment for a term not exceeding three years or to a fine not exceeding five thousand ringgit or to both”.

Salafi Radicals rapidly filling up Political vaccum in Post Mubarak Egypt

Salafis advocate a Return to Puritanical Islamist world order

Salafis seek power in Egypt

AlJazeeraEnglish

For a group that has never taken part in political life, the religious conservative Salafi movement is now emerging as a new political force in Egypt.

As they establish a platform based on Islam as a system of governance, however, many secular activists fear the emergence of a religious state following their country’s ousting of long-term leader Hosni Mubarak.

Al Jazeera’s Zeina Khodr reports from Alexandria on the ideological battle to fill the vacuum left in the wake of Egypt’s revolution.

Salafism, or at least the so called “puritanical” forms of it, has been recently criticized by Professor Khaled Abou El Fadl of UCLA School of Law. El Fadl

Egyptian scholar Tawfik Hamid says that Salafist Muslim fundamentalists believe that Saudi Arabia’s petroleum-based wealth is a divine gift, and that Saudi influence is sanctioned by God. Thus this extreme brand of Sunni Islam that spread from the Saudi Arabia to the rest of the Islamic world is regarded not merely as one interpretation of the religion but the only genuine interpretation.

The expansion of violent and regressive Islam, he continues, began in the late 1970s, and can be traced precisely to the growing financial clout of Saudi Arabia. He says “is puritanical, extreme and does, yes, mean that women can be beaten, apostates killed and Jews called pigs and monkeys.”
