11-11-2013 20:46It is not a matter of verification but of explanation: The quote-unquote nuclear renaissance – more precisely to be described as the scorched Earth economy – of the London regime follows a pattern of penetration of an uninformed public that is known from regions where atomic power is mystified as the last step of colonial independence and pushed into the faces of the people regardless of specific value for geopolitical triangulation. The post-colonial regimes are repeating the self-destructive mistakes of the colonialist and its heirs in order to overtake their failing economies and avoid more of the same, and the internal contradiction of that ambition transforms into mathematically suicidal projections of atomic power generation. Now since the last big reactor meltdown has slashed all economic foundations for atomic power in Europe, a financial blowback from these spoiled colonies serves as the new centerpiece of the so-called nuclear ideology there. That means Japanese reactors at the Black Sea for the Turkish politician Erdogan to assert himself of what he seems to feel as a lack of power, and now Chinese-financed French reactors in Britain. This pattern is being called suicidal because it is designed to evade meltdown compensation claims so that a catastrophe there would be likely to take down the local currency with it, since neighbours might find it even more difficult to take external enablers into account. In such a distorted situation the people do no longer have reactors, but the reactors have the people. And the most stupid politician would be the one betting everything on an absurd expectation that when the reactor meltdown comes everyone else would look even more stupid.

07-11-2013 15:35Co-inciding with the Bonfire Night protest in London, and numerous demos and actions against austerity elsewhere, a protest called by Anonymous took to the streets of Cardiff on Tuesday night, ending in attempts to occupy the Senedd (Welsh assembly building).
Resistance to s.144 of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act (LASPO) 2012 that outlaws squatting in residential buildings is growing. Ultimately, the law may prove unworkable and unenforceable.
Ten days ago, squatters occupied a residential council property in Southwark in protest at the sell-off of council houses and the criminalisation of squatting under s.144. Last week, a Brighton squatter was acquitted on appeal as the prosecution failed to prove he was living at the property. His two co-defendants had previously been acquitted on the same charge.
Yesterday, another case collapsed when the Crown Prosecution Service presented no evidence at Mold Crown Court against Tristan Dixon who was appealing his conviction under s.144.
Tristan's supporters set up a protest about homelessness and squatting on the court forecourt, complete with cardboard, sleeping bag, visual statistics about empty homes, teddy bear and a friendly dog on a piece of string. Flyers were offered to everyone entering or leaving the court. The protest proved very timely as no fewer than ten repossession cases were being heard that day in the County Court in the same building, four of them brought by the local Flintshire County Council.

"Already, in the few days I have spent in Germany, it is heartening to see the people joining together and calling for their government to do what must be done – to investigate NSA spying revelations, and to offer Edward Snowden asylum."
