  7. Premiering at AFI FEST 2003, The Letter was written and directed by Ziad H. Hamzeh (Shadow Glories), and produced by Hamzeh, Bert Brown and Marc Sandler. The film chronicles the turmoil economically struggling and overwhelmingly white Lewiston, Maine faced when 1,100 former Somali refugees relocated there en-masse in the wake of the 9/11 tragedy - referred to at the time as the "Somali invasion" by the international news media. Passions were enflamed when Lewiston's then mayor, Larry Raymond, wrote an open letter to the Somali community asking them to tell friends and family not to move into the city. The ensuing controversy pitted anti-immigration white supremacist groups against local community activists supporting the Somalis, culminating in simultaneous competing rallies that necessitated the largest police action in Maine's history to ensure the safety of the city's residents. In addition to its AFI FEST 2003 debut, The Letter won the International Spirit Award for Best Documentary at the 2004 Boston International Film Festival, was nominated for Best Documentary at the 2004 Pan-African Film Festival, and was selected to open the 2004 Amnesty International Film Festival in Pittsburgh.

  10. I already tried to bribe my sister into voting for UCID in the upcoming parliamentary elections without any luck, dam those kulmiye fanatics they are loyal as khat patrons. And with this song coming out on radio stations it’s going to make our job of bribing relatives mush harder, so all of you UCID supporters pick up the phones and start calling your relatives/friends and start convincing them to switch their votes to UCID or bribe them if you can’t turn them. Now remember desperate time calls for desperate measures. good luck nice song by the way

The lesson to be learned with a 3 life path is that of achievement through expression. The bright side of this path stresses harmony, beauty and pleasures; of sharing your creative talents with the world. Capturing your capability in creative self-expression is the highest level of attainment for this life path. You are warm and friendly, a good conversationalist, social and open. A good conversationalist both from the standpoint of being a delight to listen to, but even more importantly, one who has the ability to listen to others. You are always a welcome addition to any social situation and know how to make others feel at home. same here

Moss has reportedly ordered the self-confessed heroin addict to move out of her Oxfordshire mansion following Doherty's fight in a north London street on Friday night. Doherty and pal Alan Wass fought with a group of Somali youths after they shouted "crackhead" at him, report today's press. Following the fight, Moss told Doherty in a tearful phonecall she was going to work in America and wanted him to leave her house by the time she returned. According to friends, Moss said, "I still love Pete but can't put up with his unpredictability anymore. I can't go on spending every day and night worrying about Pete. He would disappear without a word and I would not hear from him for several days." A spokesman for London police headquarters Scotland Yard says, "We were called to reports of an altercation. A man was arrested." volume10

  15. At least five people have been killed after grenades were thrown at a night-club and official residences in Ethiopia's Somali region. More than 30 people have been wounded in the blasts in regional capital Jigjiga and the nearby towns of Dhagahbuur and Fiiq. The attacks happened the day before voter registration was due to start in the region for elections next month. Government officials blame the region's rebel groups for the blasts. The elections are being held later in the Somali region than in the rest of Ethiopia because of security fears, and because it is difficult to reach the area's nomads. Child killed The attacks had not stopped preparations for the 21 August election, said regional security head Jamiil Haji Mohammed. His house was targeted, along with that of regional parliamentary speaker Ali Kunai. Mr Jamil said the attacks had been carried out by the region's ****** National Liberation Front (ONLF) rebels. Four of the deaths occurred when grenades were thrown at a night-club. Eyewitnesses in Jigjiga said they had heard gunshots before the grenades and other explosive devices were thrown. In Dhagahbuur, officials confirmed that the child of a senior official died when a grenade blew up his house. A land-mine has also exploded under an army lorry but no-one was injured. The authorities says they have launched a massive manhunt. Moves to peace? Information Minister Bereket Simon also vowed that the attacks would not hinder the elections but he said it was too early to say who was responsible. "This was a terrorist attack that was meant to terrorise people. The election will carry on as normal," he told the Reuters news agency. The attacks come exactly a week after Prime Minister Meles Zenawi announced his government's willingness to have dialogue with the region's ****** National Liberation Front rebels. The ONLF leaders have also responded favourably to the government's call to dialogue though they are yet to declare any ceasefire. Election results from the rest of the country show the main opposition coalitions and the ruling party have almost the same number of seats. The National Electoral Board is investigating allegations of electoral fraud. Protests against the alleged fraud left at least 36 people dead after security forces opened fire in the capital, Addis Ababa.
