"INDEPENDENT"s Thomas Sutcliffe: same 911 smear -doesnt comprehend doublebubble

19-02-2007 12:40

Despite the pretence of independence, the treatment of certain news items by the "independent" is, if anything, more reactionary compared to other papers. The TV review (19 feb 07) of the 911 programme is a good example of this. Too often people that write for this website assume bad intentions, rather than the usual influences, so, as a sort of "informed sceptic", allow some explanations: engage!

Audio reports and background from the 4th KnowledgeLab

19-02-2007 12:00

Audio The 4th Knowledge was held at Nottingham University
Over 50 people came together over the weekend at Nottingham University for an event called 'the Knowledge Lab'. The event is aimed at bridging the gap between activism and academia to reflect in a more indepth way on various issues, this time based around 'Knowledge'.

Workshops were based around questions such as 'how do we know'? what is knowledge'? 'where do we gain our knowledge from'? 'does someone hold control over our knowledge'? 'how does gender affect knowledge'? 'how does education effect knowledge'? 'how are our senses affected by advertising and the media'? 'how can suppressed knowledge be released into the mainstream'? Other sessions included a presentation on alternative education projects, an Indymedia session showing people how to use the website and publish news, and an experiment in anarchism called SOMA - Consensus decision making without the mind/body split.

We recorded an interview with one of the organisers of the event and a chat with a 'knowledgelab-regular' about the history and aims of the knowledgelabs. The last recording is part of a session called Open Spaces for Dialogue and Enquiry (OSDE) which looked at knowledge, what it is and how our knowledge is affected.
