(The '7 days' theme was to coincide with the 7th anniversary of 9/11.)

HLS Financial Demos in London

14-09-2008 13:13

It had been a while since we had paid NYSE Euronext a visit in London, partly because of the awful place that it is to demonstrate and the restrictions of the injunction they have taken out against us, but we were here again today outside the normal terms of the injunction to perform a very loud and committed demonstration.

Berlusconi vetoes Oliver Stone "W" movie.

14-09-2008 12:39

"il Festival de Roma" is to be celebrated between the 22nd and 31st of October this year and will include movie premiers as usual. The organisers had they thought pulled off a bit of a "coup de grace" if not "coup d'etat" when they signed up Oliver Stone's "W" a forthcoming global release which tells the story on one young alcoholic's bravery in the face of overwhelming odds to achieve his dream of the presidency of the USA. Alas, festival organisers didn't count on the cinematic interest of Italy's modern day "Duce" who like his forebear realises the power of the silver screen to teach the masses some truth. According to the British distributors of the product Dda it was Mr B. who vetoed the movie arguing it is insulting & misleading - simply "untrue" something the seventh art ought not be. "Mr B knows best." & Roman festival goers aint gonna see the movie.

Noel Edmonds - How 'scarcity' easily leads to racism

14-09-2008 10:59

A horrible example of how a right-wing take on climate change, energy security etc. can foster reactionary mentalities instead of human-centered social change. It's bad enough that some green activists are abandoning an anti-capitalist ecology in favour of green capitalism based on the notion that anything that works is necessary given the likely timeframe of global warming. Worse would be a convergence of green politics and a support for the Tories based on a perceived 'better' green agenda. No doubt this will happen. Get ready!

When the facts speak for themselves

14-09-2008 10:35

Escaping from the State
Do we still need to repeat it? Do we still have to add words to facts
which speak for themselves? The Belgian democracy had to cope with
dozens of uprisings and escapes in its prison and camps. In this way,
prisoners broke the silence and the isolation they're assigned to.

Now, on the occasion of the seventh anniversary of those horrific events, Griffin surveys in detail all the main lines of evidence against the official account of 9/11 to have emerged during the last four years.

'There are nine different words for the colour blue in the Spanish Maya dictionary
but just three Spanish translations exist, leaving six butterflies that can be seen only
by the Maya, proving that when a language dies six butterflies disappear from
the consciuosness of the earth."
