No Tears for Injured Oppressors! Or – What does “No Justice, No Peace” really mean

25-02-2006 08:14

(a reflection on the mass emotional reaction to the shooting of a police officer in Nottingham, and how this kind of reaction, far from being humanistic, reinforces the psychological underpinnings of the status quo, suspends the performative effectiveness of opposition, and thus generates impunity for statist abuses)

Weapon of mass destruction
In the Afghanistan turkey shoot the CoW forces used vast numbers of hard target weapons and other munitions containing depleted uranium (DU). This substance is almost twice as dense as lead. When it punches through concrete bunkers, armour, or mud huts, DU disintegrates into a chemically toxic and radioactive dust. In contrast to the earlier DU weapons used in Gulf War I, the newer ordinance produced deaths and deformities within weeks of the start of military action by the CoW. Between 1990-91 and 2001 the US arms manufacturers are thought to have "improved" the DU technology by introducing milled uranium ore to their warheads. This non-depleted uranium (NDU) is - wait for it - cheaper to produce and far more potent than DU. It poses massive health risks to civilian populations exposed to it, and constitutes, in every sense of the word, a weapon of mass destruction, or WMD. "Hey they're hunting them in Iraq, aren't they?"

London, An evening of discussion and interchange

24-02-2006 22:56

Logo Centre of Cultures
Today’s youth feel increasingly discriminated, drug abuse, alcohol abuse and suicide are all on the increase – yet today’s youth feel more idealistic than ever. They yearn for a world without violence, they see no reflection of their values in today’s society that places the value of money as the most important value.
In this situation instead of participating actively in organised social change they increasingly isolate themselves, saving their idealistic expressions to anti-war marches and anti-capitalist events.
