absorbing half of the CO2 that it used to.(1)

Another research project from the same University
published in May, 2007 found that the southern
oceans are no longer absorbing CO2 from the
atmosphere. But to make things worse, they
are starting to release it back into the air.(2)

Demand release of Aotearoa/NZ Political Prisoners

23-10-2007 15:52

17 political activists in Aotearoa/New Zealand are being held in jail and threatened with charges of terrorism. What they have in common is supporting tino rangatiratanga, Maori claims to self-determination. These arrests are political (new tougher terrorism laws are coming up for debate in parliament) and aimed at creating a climate of fear. Therefore we see these arrests as state terrorism and demand the immediate release of the prisoners. This event is in support of a global day of action called by supporters of the prisoners.

Crossrail - Brown and Livingstone scheme to help rich rip off the poor

23-10-2007 14:23

Crossrail is a great example of public scheme using taxpayers money for the purposes of funding enterpise that benefits the private sector. Crossrail will be siphoning off £16-25 billion of taxpayers money. The City and big business have opted to pay the smallest share despite benefitting from having a brand new line dedicated to fat City boys and property price rises in Canary Wharf and the City as a direct result of Crossrail. Why are UK taxpayers and London communities paying? Because Ken Livingstone and Gordon Brown are afraid of the fat City men Digby Jones and Michael Snyder.

The Midas-Excess and Pleonexia

23-10-2007 14:14

The Midas-excess, the more-addiction or pleonexia is similar to the grand delusion of self-righteousness. Our narcissist culture, the dance around the golden ego, must be fought on all fronts. The vulgar materialist (cf. Ernst Bloch) thinks the world is only material and dismisses everything inward, spiritual and divine, whatever cannot fit in one's pocket, as irrelevant.
