Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil: Snake Oil!

28-04-2008 10:59

Ever get the feeling you’ve been had? It’s an iconic quote from a punk legend, but as with all great sayings, it can be applied in many different places. This is one example: the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil, an industry talking shop if ever there was one and, like the ineffectual light-green environmental groups who “fight” for changes to government policy and send out gleeful press releases whenever a corporation promises to behave itself, the RSPO are actually making things far worse than if the public were left to their own devices.

Making a killing from the food crisis

28-04-2008 10:25

The world food crisis is hurting a lot of people, but global agribusiness firms, traders and speculators are raking in huge profits. The fundamental cause of today's food crisis is neoliberal globalisation itself, which has transformed food from a source of livelihood security into a mere commodity to be gambled away, even at the cost of widespread hunger among the world’s poorest people.

Don't bother to vote again, it only encourages them.

28-04-2008 06:23

You can't change a play by shuffling the players. It is in the interests of government to maintain status quo instead of trying to improve our outmoded system. At the last general election the present government only received 22% support from the electorate and more than a third didn't bother to vote at all. How can that be claimed as a democratic mandate to govern?

Grangemouth Workers Strike

27-04-2008 21:50

Unite members at a Grangemouth meeting
Today sees the start of a 48 hour strike by workers at the Ineos oil refinery in Grangemouth, Central Scotland. Members of the Unite Union have staged the walk out in response to the companies discontinuation of their pension scheme, leaving workers with an uncertain future. Grangemouth produces %10 of the UK’s petrol and diesel. The strike will also cause the shutting of the Forties pipe-line, which supplies much of the UK’s fossil-fuels, including the fifth of Britain’s gas.

From Balance of Terror to Unilateral Terror

27-04-2008 18:02

“what is a unipolar world? However one might embellish this term, at the end of the day it refers to one type of situation, namely one centre of authority, one centre of force, one centre of decision-making. It is world in which there is one master, one sovereign. And at the end of the day this is pernicious not only for all those within this system, but also for the sovereign itself because it destroys itself from within.”
