Wer gern per RSS auf dem laufenden gehalten werden möchte, sollte auf spiegel.de vorbeischauen. Auf den Seiten "Unruhen in Arabien" und "Aufstand in Libyen" sind viele informative Artikel zu den benannten Themen gelistet.
Ich bitte alle, diese kleine Linksammlung zu rebloggen und gegebenenfalls zu korrigieren und/oder zu erweitern. Man sollte die Nordafrika-Revolution(en) nicht aufgrund eines möglichen Super-GAUs in Japan aus den Augen verlieren.
“‘Presumably because he had a punk hairstyle and facial piercings they dismissed him as a junkie. But nothing could be further from the truth. My Peter never touched drugs and lived a healthy lifestyle.
‘He loved punk music, it was his life but having a spikey haircut doesn’t make you a drug abuser. I will always hold the doctors and nurses responsible for Peter’s death.
‘It’s just the disgusting way they treated my son. I think the attitude of the hospital staff is appalling, they just looked at Peter and just judged him for the way he looked.’
One nurse sent him home saying: ‘Do you realise we do have sick people in this hospital?’
‘When they arrived they just looked at him and asked him what drugs had he taken, and said he shouldn’t be frightened in telling them just because his mum was there.
‘He phoned us on Thursday evening crying and said he had never felt so ill in all his life and that he was hallucinating, probably because his temperature was so high.‘We finally convinced them he hadn’t taken drugs and they properly examined him and again said he didn’t need to go to the hospital.
‘He was too frightened to go to sleep because he was scared he wouldn’t wake up again.’

‘It was the last time I spoke to him, he just sounded so weak and tired,’ Susan said.
‘At the inquest the pathologist confirmed that it was swine flu and that he could have probably survived had he proper received treatment in time. It’s just unbelievable he was neglected in this way.’”
