As critical geographers we are surprised by this, since this School is pointed at as one of the operational bases of the bloody Chilean dictatorship (1973-1990). The Military School General Bernardo O’Higgins was a centre of torture and murder according to the two most important official reports on

Stop bird slaughter in Cyprus now!

The new EU member state Cyprus has become a death trap for the birds which migrate across the Eastern Mediterranean. Countless trappers set up their nets, and above all lime sticks, in almond and olive groves, in gardens and in the macchia in order to trap migrant song birds resting on passage. The main victims of the lime sticks are warblers and thrushes; but cuckoos, owls and other protected birds are also caught. The trapped birds are destined for the pot, not infrequently in restaurants, whe
