Contemporary Ideology Forum hosts Dr D. Parr on the Precautionary Principle

29-10-2004 11:37

Dr Doug Parr, Chief Scientist of Greenpeace, will be talking the Precautionary Principle in relation to new technologies, GMOs, nanotechnology and wind power. He will argue that the Precautionary Principle can be applied in all these cases, but this can still lead to differing positions on what to do. This is because underlying some of these judgements is a differing set of values. He will attempt to draw out how this relates to three sets of people: (a) Greenpeace, (b) "the public" and (c) "the establishment" (both scientififc and political). His presentation will also draw out, with examples, how difficult it is for certain arguments to be heard which amounts to little better than censorship.

This weeks Schnews's "and finally" section tells us that, following a year of leave, Roger Davies, the "Hanging Judge of Horseferry Road", has resigned, with his index linked pension intact. They calculate he stands to make up to £1m from the deal. Mayday will never be the same again. I'm sure a number of Indymedia readers will join me in wishing Roger a happy retirement .........

A climate of censorship and repression still clings to modern Greece, and reports about the trial of the Coastguard who assaulted Necati modify the facts quite freely and continue to undermine Necati's credibility. This is in line with earlier actions that tried to styop him testifying at all. It is a shame!

Why the Afghan Election Has No Credibility.

29-10-2004 01:43

The Afghan election has no credibility for the simple fact that instead of counting the ballots at the precincts where the Afghan people voted the organizers of the election - the U.S. government - decided to do what they did in the Batista election in Cuba prior to the Cuban revolution. They decided to move the ballot boxes to Kabul citing the need for secure counting.
