"The Redcoats are....The Corporations Are Coming!!"

12-02-2004 07:17

Audio "The corporations are coming! The corporations are coming!"
integrity is evidenced from his remarks in an interview about sitting in on democratic meetings and seeing what goes on, he said they make all their decisions based on polls ?? "It's Sick", he said. I have a message for these wayward writers who are taking turns, in a deliberate, orchestrated smear campaign to impugn a modern-day prophet and refuse to recognize, and hence INSULT, the burdgeoning grassroots movement arising from the awakened masses. HERE is The Message---this beautiful movement can only be delayed ,Never stopped because it has Founding Father energy and LightWorkers and healers who Love this Land and the principles of Liberty, Equality and Unity and are working very hard to co-create a New Covenant to give to posterity ! We are alive, real and in tune with the higher cause of our existence.

Article seeks to assault stupidity in our activist culture

12-02-2004 03:50

do you wait for your "leaders" to "help" you, or do you arm your desires?
here is a run-down (in mode of quick notes) to this interesting article, with a link provided. "...we challenge left activist culture to live up to its anti-hierarchical claims: activists should themselves become intellectuals. Why reproduce the larger society's division between mental and physical labor?"

Blackwood Legal update

12-02-2004 03:04

First the good news.

Due to the discovery of dormice en route we have won a battle if not the war (yet!). Today, on the advice of CCW, the Welsh Assembly made Costain stop all work on site pending an (obviously, inevitably successful) application for the granting of a license to move the dormice. Whether the Assembly grant this license, or not, will obviously be a political, not an environmental, decision.

Independents Quit Globalise Resistance Steering Committee

12-02-2004 01:05

According to a mysteriously leaked resignation letter, four leading members of Globalise Resistance's Steering Committee have resigned with immediate effect, citing the undemocratic takeover of the organisation by the SWP to further its own interests in the organising the European Social Forum in London in late 2004. It is not clear who leaked the letter, but as a journalist, I felt duty-bound to put this information in the public interest. The text follows below.

LAB 3 Supplying the vivisection industry out of Bristol

11-02-2004 23:57

The company Lab3 based in Bristol have been seen exiting Sequani vivisection labs in Ledbury, Herefordshire. We've tried to upload html to Bristol-IMC but it all gets fucked up ... so, here's the address and email addresses for lab 3 in Bristol for anyone who cares enough to demo them, constantly email them or phone them in the hope they will stop supplying Sequani animal testing labs due to constant pressure. Lab3 are paca - west mids 4th target, paca are still on the 3rd target but it all helps to start early on the next one!

Sequani ltd murder puppies in their mothers wombs in reproductive toxicology tests before dissecting them, they also torture and murder dogs, pigs, rabbits, guinea pigs, mice and rats for profit gain under the bogus banner of 'scientific research'.

More info on PACA - West Midlands or Sequani labs please visit: or email
