Deep Forest Poetry

14-09-2014 11:04

Where public life suffers oppression, freedom is on the run. The long march to the future beyond a time that has no future becomes the only escape from the destructive forces of capitalism. The project to get and remain ahead the distorted imagination of the death squads of civilisation becomes an existential impulse. The woods or what is remaining thereof becomes the most important if not condition of victory then obstacle of defeat, and the elementary techniques of life here have changed little over the recent millennia.

Guardian sinks further away from Journalism

13-09-2014 19:42

1940GMT 13 Sept 2014 The London Guardian's Alan Rusbridger (who has erased the Manchester bit almost without trace) has announced a raft of measures that take him much nearer to Murdoch than would have been previously thought. In justifying the move, Rusbridger has resorted to complacently quoting Mr Scott, the very overly triumphed longest serving Editor of a Century ago. But Mr Rusbridger is, typically, being over the top in his boasts.

Sussex Police Act first, Cover up Later!

12-09-2014 12:04

On the 05.12.13 I was stopped by Sussex Police for a variety of reasons. 1. Using a public telephone box (suspicious behaviour apparently) 2. A known associate had been in the area earlier that day. 3. Suspicion that my bicycle was stolen (it has been proved that this was incorrect) 4.I am a priority target for Sussex Police and will be stopped every time that they see me (a clear breach of the Police and Criminal Evidence act 1984 code of practice 'C' and tantamount to harassment).

The Islamic State Messages in the Light of the Climate Catastrophe

11-09-2014 16:50

When rainforest covers tropical land, it accumulates all that it needs in a layer of organic soil that over the centuries slowly spreads across infertile rocks and sand. This thin blanket keeps nutrients and water in small scale systems where they circulate through all stages of plant and animal life. Desertification is being defined as the loss of this treasure, and in contrast to its accumulation can kick in in relatively limited time-spans. Once a forest is entirely removed, wind and weather erode the Earth and leave the ground in a condition unsuitable for human life. This is the kind of landscape that forms the background of the Islamic State messages, and unlike in other places in this one it has been there for longer than any of humanity´s written historical records can explain. It is only known that humans lived in the area before it became a desert for a time compared to which even the horizon of documented history appears quite short. Though the background of the messages might appear coincidental, the occurrence of other such details signifies that it is not, even if the originators of the videos just took what they could find in the area for their filming. In the middle of that dead landscape, the orange colour of the missing rainforest soil reappears as the last cloth of the executed. When all the vegetation is gone, it is all that is left and once it is openly visible very soon it will be gone as well, and so do the lives of these filmed in it. It was Al-Baghdadi who declared that the purpose of the conflict was for everyone to find a green garden at the cool river, as opposed to the desert of the present, and the climate meltdowns expected of its future. What can be seen now is still far away from this vision, but from beyond the bias of the cultures whose core narratives relate to that history of regional loss, it is precisely pinching the root cause of the problem: The existence of empires so large that the small caste that rules them is still larger than the uncontacted people they conquer is in the ultimate consequence a lethal threat to the planet because these empires scorch the Earth.

London Borough of Hunger Hamlets, the new Chronicle

11-09-2014 07:58

The Tower is the Tower of London which is sited on the south-western
corner of the Boro that is called Tower Hamlets. Apart from that link,
the Tower of London isn’t really part of the main statistical data that has
come into the public, even inquiries, domain.
It is the English borough with the highest rates and incidents of Poverty.
So how come that the Poverty of Tower Hamlets, the London Borough, doesn’t get
in the main news that appears about the same area?
