Why do activists continue to make use of MySpace? - Calling for a new online social network

15-02-2007 14:42

social networking

After some recent discussion on whether a local critical mass group should set up an account on the social networking site MySpace, some interesting things came to light. The amount of activist and campaign groups using the social networking site is growing. These groups include not only critical mass groups in London, Oxford and Manchester and anarchists from Norwich, Gwent, Ipswich but also bigger initiatives like Earth First (1) | (2), Plane Stupid, the Anarchist Federation (1) | (2) and the Cowley Club in Brighton. Even within the independent media world Democray Now, the Indypendent (1) | (2), and Indymedia (1) | (2) collectives from San Diego, Los Angelos (1) | (2) and Indybay have joined the MySpace craze. All but to name a few really. But is MySpace really the online community I would want to be part of? Looking into its structure and the real reasons behind its existance, I doubt I would.

Olympics and Crossrail - two mega wasters of London people's money

15-02-2007 09:13

Today’s ‘London Olympics 2012’ stunt being staged at Ken Livingstone’s Cxxx Hall on the south bank of the Thames opposite the Tower of London, is not going to allay fears that like the CRASSrail hole project, the Olympics project is another over-hyped ply to benefit big business.

The news about London's chief self-promoter Livingstone's 'deputy', Nicky Gavron, running up huge bills in transporting herself in truly offensively indolent, indulgent style, just confirms how corrupt the entire lot at the Cxxx all is and why the community ourselves have to do what we can to stop these abusers taking the people of London for granted

With crusader commentators like the BBC's Alan Little, who needs GW Bush ?

15-02-2007 05:15

Alan Little, like Fergal Keane, is one of those over-hyped so-called leftie BBC-platformed 'thinking journalists' that form what can only be called the Polly Toynbee operation against the Muslims of the world. No matter how solid the evidence that Muslims are innocent, Polly Toynbee [who has been given platform by the arch poisonous and racist Guardian, London] will find something somehow that will show the Muslims to be at fault.

Gallo does Bush inpersonation in court

15-02-2007 04:30

I just got finished reading Bob Gallo's testimony in the Parenzee
case. For all the good his testimony will do, the prosecution might
as well have called George W. Bush to the stand. I get the feeling
that Gallo unwittingly associated himself with Bush in the eyes of
the court.
