'Leftists' and animal rights, the new book.

11-01-2008 20:45

'Suggest to the average leftist that animals should be part of broader liberation struggles and—once they stop laughing—you'll find yourself casually dismissed. With a focus on labor, property, and the life of commodities, Making a Killing contains key insights into the broad nature of domination, power, and hierarchy. It explores the intersections between human and animal oppressions and their relation to the exploitative dynamics of capitalism. Combining nuts and bolts Marxist political economy, a pluralistic anarchist critique, as well as a searing assessment of the animal rights movement, Bob Torres challenges conventional anti-capitalist thinking and convincingly advocates for the abolition of animals in industry—and on the dinner plate.'

11-01-2008 18:58

Five days after Sunday’s encounter between US warships and Iranian boats in the Strait of Hormuz, details of what took place remain in dispute.

The proposed expansion of Oxford's Westgate Centre doesn't just threaten a group of beautiful trees, it also threatens to turn yet more of our city centre into a nightmarish consumer wasteland. Thanks to the people who've been up the trees, the Council are now on the back foot and there's a chance we could force them to scrap the whole stupid scheme - but we need people there!

Will Manchester United Celebrate Israel at 60?

11-01-2008 11:56

The Israeli government has invited Manchester United to play a match during the state’s 60th anniversary celebrations. Ron Prosor, Israel's UK ambassador, seems to be trying to “improve Israels image” by associating the country with a hugely successful brand. I fail to see what good it will do Man Utd to be associated with the worlds worst brand, especially at a time of year when Israel is celebrating their independence at the expense of the Palestinians who were ethnically cleansed.
