From the Bulgarian education system to the Bolivian water supply, capitalists love nothing more than turning an area of life previously financed by universal taxation into a source of profit. The announcement that the government’s new get-tough-on-disabled-people regime will not be implemented by a government department is an indicator of a much wider process - the wholesale privatisation of public services in Britain. The ‘assessment’ of disabled people, care homes, employment and training services, the justice system; all are up for grabs.

Permanent War

07-02-2006 05:51

US Secretary of Defence, Donald Rumsfeld, recently announced the ‘war on terror’ would be re-named “the long war”; this announcement has not surprised analysts who are aware that neo-con ideologues and strategists follow the Straussian (and perverted Trotskyist) doctrine of permanent war. Some interpret this as nostalgia for the ‘good old days’ of the Cold War in which a clearly defined enemy (communist bogeymen) kept the nation on permanent alert and amenable to the powers of the time.

Let it be known, that the senior management national news
reducers of CBC and CNN, know full well, they would rather
watch American Soldiers die as the thieving bad guys, than to
defend God's America by reporting that the demon enemy George
W. Bush, and his business partner General Ahmad, committed

and Myers.

Brum's February Critical Mass Gains Momentum

06-02-2006 23:35

Critical Mass is an organised coincidence of bikes and other non-polluting forms of transport that come together on the first Friday of every month in Birmingham to collectively reclaim some of the city’s roads. Birmingham’s Critical Mass is normally dormant throughout the winter so it was inspiring to see nearly 20 people on this ride and a great response from pedestrians who were cheering us on. The monthly ride is picking up momentum and is set to snowball for spring and the summer. There are also plans to screen a CM film at Birmingham University and a ride afterwards feeding into the main mass sometime in the future.

Here are some photos of Brum’s February Critical Mass.

Alternative Social Forum in Caracas: voices from the left

06-02-2006 23:17

* In Caracas, Venezuela between the 23rd and 29th of January 2006, 10 local socio-political organizations offered an alternative forum and critique of national politics in response to the World Social Forum. The result was a smaller-scale event but self-directed and reflective of current self-organizing capacity. The alternative forum was independent, self-managed and borne out of years of experience of organizing in the Venezuelan context.

Today I am filled with deep humility
Plichta writes of this model as follows. "There was a time I used to make fun of the Apocalypse of St John and believed it to be a totally unreliable historical source. Today I am filled with deep humility, perhaps because I am now able to give a concrete description of the foundation of the world as seen by St John with my mathematical discoveries, and thus possibly open a new way to all of humanity which has now reached a dead end."
