Newsom for a Nuclear California

Governor Greenwash I, and. . . II?
California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom both support big corporate renewable energy projects, mega solar, wind, wave, and even hydroelectric, along with every other sort of big corporate power,but,renewables just aren't enough for really big guys, like Schwarzenegger and Newsom. To be a really big guy, or a really big nation, and an international power, you've gotta have nuclear power. And nuclear weapons, the invention that gave rise to nuclear power, and nuclear power politics.

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom both know it, and support it.

Thessaloniki (15/4): Communiqué of attack against British college

05-05-2009 21:23

Thessaloniki (15/4): Communiqué of attack against British college in solidarity with G20 and Nottingham arrestees: “Return to normality will never come”

First, a short introduction. Attacks of this type (so called “camping-gas bomb” attacks, or simply “gazakia” in Greek, or like in this case, the smashing of window shops etc) have been taking place in Greece’s major cities for a while. Usual targets include banks, multinational corporations, embassies and the like. In most cases the attacks (which only cause material damage) are followed by a communiqué explaining the reasoning behind them: communiqués of this sort are most often published on indymedia or on blogs likes this one - while they are occasionally also sent to mainstream media outlets.

During the French riots of 2005, approximately 1,000 cars were burnt every night. A largely unknown fact, however, is that approximately 100 cars are burnt across the country every single night: in that sense, the French revolt didn’t start in 2005 and, most certainly, didn’t end then either. Similarly, attacks of the type described above preceded the December revolt and have, by all measuring standards, been on the increase since. What used to be attacks in the major urban centres of the country only (Athens, Thessaloniki), have now spread to somewhere between 9 and 15 cities across Greece. The type of these attacks, their targets and their communiqués vary, of course. What follows is the communiqué of the attack against a British educational institute in Thessaloniki on 15/4.
