16-06-2005 18:27The mainstream media’s response to the announcement that the G8 had agreed to cancel $40 billion dollars in debt for eighteen countries in third world, mainly African, was of sheer awe at the magnanimous generosity of the leaders of the world’s richest nations, who had found it in their loving, Christian hearts to offer a favor to the childish and confused citizens of Africa.
16-06-2005 18:20A 10-month Scotland Yard study has documented ongoing Christian human child sacrifices in London, and a Christian theologian Dr. Richard Hoskins of Kings College acknowledges that this is true but asks that it be dealt with "sensitively". Contrast this demand for sensitivity with the everyday psychotic mistreatment of Muslims over "issues" like polygamy.
16-06-2005 18:03On Sunday the 12th of June the Cre8 Summit began. An inspiring local project set up in response both to the approved building of the new M74 northern extension and the G8 summit to be held in July 2005.
The project aims to transform an area on the route of the M74 left derelict by the planners into a community garden blossoming with flowers and activities, old folk relaxing and young people playing but most importantly our neighbourhoods building.
Between 11th June and Saturday 18th of June we are be creating a community garden on a piece of wasteland along the propsed route of the M74 motorway extension which will cut through 2 communites and cause massive congestion and contamination. (for more info see www.jam74.org ) There is a social space with workshops, with food provided and plenty of chances to get stuck in. Celebration with a party on 18th June. After that, there will be a family festival between 29th June and 3rd July. Your skills/help/plants/gas-parafin lamps/arts materials are more than welcome and needed.
Work has already begun amongst a plethra of interest from residents and media. The week long gardening project will culminate in a Festival on Saturday 18th of June however the community garden will continue well beyond the G8 summit next month.
The Cre8 summit site is situated at Eglington Toll- take the number 44/57/22/23 to get there

16-06-2005 13:53Social logic is more future-friendly than profit logic. With the end of cheap oil and the dollar crash on the horizon, a basic income would make the future human rather than predatory. Social Darwinism and an overreach economism blind to long-term necessities could become dinosaurs.
