Peak oil and the imminent collapse of industrial civilisation.

16-10-2004 12:08

There is a huge problem on it's way. Governments have given up on attempting to resolve it and are in fact actively suppressing information about it. It's the reason that we're in Iraq and will most probably be invading Iran in the near future. The problem is all about diminishing reserves of oil and an economic system that requires perpetual growth (A physical impossibility) It will mean billions of deaths.

Justice for the Canary Wharf cleaners!

15-10-2004 18:56

Samba band craziness
Led by the Samba band, a group of protesters turned up at Canary Wharf today to shout their support for a fair wage for the workers in the Canary Wharf buildings. An injunction had been obtained in the days leading up to the protest by the owners of the Canary Wharf complex to prevent the protest taking place. This may have diminished the numbers in attendance but it did not make the issue, or the protest, go away... As a spokesman for the Transport and General Workers Union said before the protest: "Canary Wharf is home to some of the most successful and powerful banks in the world. But it is content to let its contract cleaners be paid poverty wages, no sick pay, 15 days holiday and no pension. This demonstration will allow workers to show their support for Wharf cleaners."
