17-10-2008 15:26

Faslane Big Blockade - Oct '07 (C. Gwyntopher)
On October 27, anti-nuclear campaigners will blockade the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) at Aldermaston, near Reading, aiming to send a strong signal to the British government that the public continues to oppose the development of a new generation of nuclear weapons. The Aldermaston Big Blockade, organised by Trident Ploughshares and supported by CND, Block the Builders and the Aldermaston Women's Peace Camp is intended to peacefully disrupt the ongoing work at AWE on Trident nuclear warheads and their successors. We intend it to be a colourful, empowering and fun occasion, with arrest optional!

Commercial Pollution In Schools: How The Supermarkets Are Winning

17-10-2008 11:51

The Unsuitablog has published a series of articles analysing the way that school supermarket voucher schemes work; how the supermarkets are infiltrating the education system in a deeply pervasive manner; the different greenwashing methods the supermarkets are using; the incredible financial benefit that the supermarkets are gaining from the way "rewards" are given out. This is a serious case of childhood commercial exploitation that no one seems to be taking seriously -- because we all seem to love these schemes.

its "selves" will pull the lever. Lots of whites seem to be profoundly

black people is also appealing to white people." Other whites are more
