04-08-2008 18:23

This essay, to be discussed at climate camp, elucidates some current problems with the Climate Camp, as demonstrated by the repression on the Kingsnorth, and demonstrate that a future trajectory can overcome them: just as the anti-roads movement transformed into the anti-globalisation movement in the UK by moving to the focus to the city and capitalism, moving the camps from the countryside to the city would make victory again possible.

The death of Solzhenitsyn & the passing of good prisoners.

04-08-2008 17:42

"think about it"
As we all know Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn has died. With his passing we all have opportunity to comment on Gulags and the mechanisms of state terror & control used to create and maintain the Soviet system & also a duty to apply such criticisms to the mechanisms of state terror & control used to create and maintain Western hegemonies.

The best way to do that in my opinion is not to wax overly lyrical in phrase or wade needlessly deep in intellectual erudition. All we need do is cast a quick eye over how today the West as Russia prepares to lay Solzhenitsyn to rest.
