436,000 Liverpool Residents Snub May Day March

04-05-2008 00:44

Video Video
Imagine a May Day march with no chants, no demands, and very few banners. Who'd want to go to that? What if the keynote speaker was a parasitic class collaborator, who had recently sold out tens of thousands of workers? Would that inspire anyone? Not really.

Big Game, Small Fry, Zimbabwean elephants and suing IMC Antwerp.

03-05-2008 22:01

not exactly John from the telly series "Lost" but wants to mean biz all the same
At first the writ served on behalf of Flemish businessman Geert Vroman & his company SPRL/BVBA Vroman seems to be yet another example of hyperbole and pique. A local businessman accuses a non-heirarchial volunteer collective engaged in progressive media and open publishing of invasion of privacy and demands damage compensation at 10,000 euro (7,820stg) for every hour an article has been on the newswire by serving a writ on a member of the team, Emmanuel Paulus. The article in question is merely a translation from English material available elsewhere on the internet supporting a petition against big game hunting which Vroman was revealed to organise thanks to a Flemish TV and Radio corporation program broadcast on March 9th, 2008. You don't need to be familiar with the European sector peers of the English "Carter Rucks" firm to spot the spoor of a big bully. But tracking the background might lead you to suspect an additional agenda of "West Vlandaaren" extreme nationalism in silencing an indymedia collective whose coverage of Vorman's Big game parties in Zimbabwe (complete with bagged elephants apparently) fell short of details published in the commercial Flemish press.

Bush/Cheney-Israeli Disinformation Campaign about Iran Directed Against the Unit

03-05-2008 16:50

The Bush administration and Israeli government appear to be operating a joint disinformation campaign, whose objective is to establish a media based alternative reality from which to accuse Syria/Iran of developing nuclear weapons with help from North Korea, by using a real event combined with planted stories establishing a defining narrative. This accusation in turn is augmented with stories about Iranian sponsored "Special Groups killing US troops in Iraq" and purported naval incidents the Persian Gulf, creating self-reinforcing, media based crisis.

Election Fraud in the news again . . . . but its those that aint that are worst

03-05-2008 15:26

From the accepted profession of old western cold war operators in the 1950s (- see most accepted history, plus "COUP", the old 1960s textbook on the subject ) rigging elections has gotten a bad name, as "dictators" legitimise themselves with what others claim are stitched up polls . . . . but surely, if the experiences of those old operators is accepted ( where did they get to, eh ?) - its the criminal semi-coups - selecting the susceptible, easy-to-blackmail, or "pre-spun" people from EACH party thats the problem the world should worry about most - on the basis of how much the influencers of their opinions - or those they might appoint - could shake bungs out of the assortment of slushfunds, "commissions", etc in todays world of shutting down fraud enquiries "in the national interest", or complicity for the sake of the "defence of the realm" - it aint that much of a surprise that people might think they could get away with it, at least long enough to leave a few other people to take the rap. . . . or suffer the effects of the escape of poison from the drains of the new "supersafe" citycentre testing lab . . . . etc
