30-01-2004 11:58The PFI, or Private Finance Initiative, has been called by the Labour Government as "The Third Way". It is seen by the political leaft as a procedure by which a public institution remains public only by name.

30-01-2004 11:46Some people, like George Monbiot, journalist and author of 'Captive State', think NHS is being privatised. Other people, like David Widgery, doctor and author of 'Health in Danger', think it is being dismantled. People like Theresa Wright who used to work as a nurse think that something is definetely going on but the Government is not being honest about its intentions.

York City August 25-27th. Planned to precede protests against the
Republican National Convention, the Food Not Bombs International Gathering
will host activists from one of the world’s largest revolutionary
movements for three days of workshops, spokescouncils, skill shares,
foodsharing and discussion on the future direction of the movement.
Since its inception in 1980, FNB has grown from one chapter to more than
300 groups all over the world who are organizing against war and
militarization by cooking and serving free meals in their communities with
the idea that the billions of dollars wasted on military spending should
instead be used to nourish the hungry. An autonomous movement, FNB
chapters engage in various projects in their communities from fighting
against poverty, gentrification and governmental immigration policies to
organizing against the war on Iraq. One hope to come from this gathering
is that FNB chapters will be better informed of what other groups are
accomplishing in other parts of the world.
