11-07-2008 11:50Dear Camp for Climate Action,
Firstly thank you for contacting me. I'm hopping mad about what I've
heard, but I may not have been told the whole story. I can tell you too
the mining community whats left of us feel utterly betrayed by rumours
about you swinging all your efforts to close down what remains of the coal
industry. There are debates about counter-demonstrations etc and press
statements from the power workers and miners. So its vital we do not take
up cudgels over this unless and until and at least that we know where each
other stand. I was a matter of interest with the National General
secretary of the NUM and the Yorkshire Area Leadership last weekend and
they are spitting feathers about the Drax demonstration. The slogans on
the demonstration and the statements made to the press by the protestsrs
demonstrated no concern for the miners, railway workers or power workers.
There was no consultation with us, no debate with us, no seeing what we
wanted or how we see the world or how we can see if there is anything is
common. 'Leave It In The Ground' was the banner which was unfurled at
Drax, 'it' being the coal, and the miners ? where do we leave them ? that
bit wasn't answered. We know where John Major and Maggie Thatcher and
Harold Wilson left us, on the dung heap, and most of us are still there.
11-07-2008 11:14Poverty can only be overcome globally. A change of perspective is necessary so social assistance is seen as positive and not as negative. Without a committment to human dignity and a human future, barbarism seems inevitable given the vast numbers of economic refugees. Radical redistribution, nationally and internationally, is the command of the hour. More articles are available at www.basicincome.org.

10-07-2008 16:56From the 19th to the 21st of September, racists and neofascists from Austria (FPÖ), Belgium (Vlaams Belang), Italy (Lega Nord), the USA (Robert Taft Group), Great Britain (British National Party), Spane and Hungary are planning to hold a so called „Anti-Islamization-Congress“, invited by the self constituted citizens' initiative „pro Köln“ (pro Cologne), to spread their propagandha against people with other origin ore religion under the smokescreen of a pretended critique on Islam.
We will not tolerate such a international racist gathering, so we are calling to impede this conference! With the tool of civil disobedience we will defy „pro Köln“ and their entourage...
Get participated on the mass-blockades in Cologne!!!

10-07-2008 14:44Following on from the news that News International threatened Media Lens with legal and police action, Media Lens has posted a new alert about the repression. This was in connection with their critical commentary on the bias of the Times over Iran and the nuclear issue. Media Lens, for those who have not encountered their work, are a small (three person) web-based team who analyse British media output, especially at the "liberal" end of the spectrum. Since 2001 they have been publishing free email 'alerts' about mainstream distortion and bias based on Chomsky and Herman's "Propaganda Model" in their book "Manufacturing Consent".
