Indepth Interview with the Pedal Powered Clowns

14-05-2007 18:46

Four activists left Nottingham today to travel into Europe and to G8 summit in Germany and eventually Palestine. Their project is all about cycling, communicating, taking action and general clowning about. Where are they going? What will they be doing? Why go to Palestine? Why is it important to go to the G8 summit in Germany? Last week I got my audio device out and invited them around for tea and cake.

The beginning of the recording is slightly disturbed by one of the younger clowns... Download the individual soundfiles or listen to the entire interview (38,4 minutes) via the stream:

US Climate Science Reduced to a 'Pack o Lies'

14-05-2007 17:31

by Don Beck

"It seems more like Nazi Germany or the
Soviet Union than the United States" -
Dr. James Hansen, NASA climatologist

Keep the facts of global warming away from
the American people.....they can't handle the
truth. That is the message we are getting from
this Administration who have placed political
appointees to head key agencies in order to
filter and even alter the scientific facts.

In February, the leading climatologist at NASA,
Dr. James Hansen testified to a congressional
committee in a hearing looking into the Bush

Blair's Legacy... and the "Struggle Against Violent Extremism"

14-05-2007 14:15

Finally. Blair’s going. But why now? And what has Blair left us behind?

There are many reasons one can guess as to why, but perhaps one of the biggest – yet least talked about – is the “cash for peerages” criminal investigation, which has been getting rather close to home, too close perhaps for Blair’s comfort.

Pedal Powered Activists from Nottingham set off for Palestine

14-05-2007 14:04

Three of the adventurers
This morning 4 activists, based at the ASBO Community Centre in Nottingham got on their bikes and set off for an epic journey to mainland Europe. The project 'Pedal Powered Clowns to Palestine' brings together performance, clowning, action and pedal power to raise awareness of the situation in Palestine as well as entertaining and supporting the Palestinian Community through play. In the last few months the group raised money through benefit events in Nottingham to fund their trip. The first leg of the journey will be by train to Hull and then onto the ferry to Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Once in Europe a few dates have been planned to work with other groups and visit some social centres. From then on the route will lead North into Germany to the G8 summit in early June. The idea is to join the G8 protests and add a creative element to the planned actions. At the end of June the group will set course for Palestine.

Here are some photos of the groups departure. Of course some of it was last minute but all set of with a feel of excitement. When we arrived at the train station some of the transport bobbies showed interest in the trailers, which I thought would never make it onto the train, but after some chat with the conductor they were all boarded on...

The Pro-Israel Lobby and US Middle East Policy: The Score Card for 2007

14-05-2007 12:46

Never in recent history has US Middle East policy been subject to such a barrage of conflicting pressures from erstwhile allies, clients as well as adversaries. The points of contention involve fundamental issues of war and peace, foremost of which are divergent responses to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, the US-Iranian confrontation, the US occupation of Iraq as well as the US-Ethiopian proxy invasion and occupation of Somalia.
