Climate Camp Is Dead! Where Now For Climate Action?

02-03-2011 17:02

Capitalism is crisis; revolution is the solution
Last night, the Camp for Climate Action released an 'official' statement, announcing that there would no climate camps either this summer or in the future. Citing the "near-collapse of the financial system; droughts in the Amazon, floods in Pakistan; a new government in the UK; a violent programme of unprecedented cuts; food prices rising and real incomes eroding; revolutions across the Middle East", the group has decided to "team up with the anti-cuts and anti-austerity movements and play a crucial role in the revolutionary times ahead". I welcome the statement, and the consensus reached at a Dorset meeting last week.

See and Discuss John Pilger's Latest Film

02-03-2011 13:24

The Nottingham Stop the War Coalition has arranged a Film Screening of John Pilger's latest film, The War You Don't See.  It's on Thursday, 31 March at 6:30pm in Nottingham Trent University's Chaucer Lecture Theatre 2, Goldsmith Street (just by the Nottingham Trent University tram stop)

The film will be introduced by Professor Richard Keeble from Lincoln University's School of Journalism, (custodians of the John Pilger archive) and will be followed by a discussion.

The War You Don't See, was shown late last year at The Broadway Cinema.  It was also shown on the main ITV1 terrestrial channel (but a little outside prime time, at 10:30pm).

This is your chance to see it at a reasonable time and, most importantly, to discuss it afterwards: the points Pilger makes about the media coverage of the War on Terror are crying out for discussion - and action!  The early start (Note: 6:30pm start) is so that we have time for discussion.

Pilger traces the history of ‘embedded' and independent reporting from the carnage of World War 1 to the destruction of Hiroshima, and from the invasion of Vietnam to the current war in Afghanistan.  See Rageh Omar, among others, admit that he could have done better!

We are very pleased that Professor Richard Keeble has agreed to introduce the film, and take part in the subsequent discussion.  Professor Keeble is the acting head of the University of Lincoln's School of Journalism, and has recently edited a book on peace journalism - for which John Pilger wrote a preface.

Entry is free, but you may be asked to throw money into our collection bucket.

John Shemeld (Co-ordinator, Nottingham Stop the War Coalition)

Climate Camp Dissolves Itself

01-03-2011 22:09

The near-collapse of the financial system; droughts in the Amazon, floods in Pakistan; a new government in the UK; a violent programme of unprecedented cuts; food prices rising and real incomes eroding; revolutions across the Middle East… This is all very different from 2005 when the Camp for Climate Action first met to spark radical action on the greatest threat to humanity, climate change.
