Yesterday however, Operation Infinite Love reclaimed the space beneath the statue of Eros for people and partying. The tourists absolutely loved the party in preference to those soulless repetitive animations promoting greedy destructive corporations. OIL is all about reclaiming love from the Valentine's day profiteers - the chocolate, card and flower producers. OIL proclaims loudly that love should always be free and is the answer to nearly all the world's problems whereas corporations and their violent lust for ever greater profits are the cause of so much injustice and environmental destruction.

ViVA ESSEX - for another union
The majority opinion after the 2008 Sabbatical Elections of the Essex University Students’ Union was that the mandate for change that had been growing over the years was confirmed by the victories of the ViVA ESSEX sabbatical candidate team, who were aiming to reclaim the direction of the Union that saw its officers usually dominated by liberals and conservatives.

17-02-2008 11:35

Michael Anderson
Sydney, 17 February 2008 -- How would you feel having to drive 1,500 kilometres to buy your household supplies, limited to 60 dollars per person?
How would you feel about police and troops with guns swarming through your community, your house, your possessions totally accessible to them without any legal instrument?
How would you feel about not being able to spend your own or your dead husband’s war veterans pension after he served in Vietnam?
