Six Deaths by Eviction in Chiapas Ejido

08-10-2008 10:49

Although not Zapatistas the 6 peasants murdered by the Mexican police were exercising their right to control over their territory in an area which has seen over 500 years of repression.

The imperialist “bailout bill” and its communist roots

08-10-2008 09:33

Regarding the current trillion-dollar “bailout bill” that has stricken the US and is threatening the EU countries - especially the UK - at present, there is an important fact to remember:
The main reason why the former communist system in Europe could exist while it existed: because the communist regimes and their banks were continuously rescued by a long series of “bailout bills”. They survived because they were kept alive by the global financial-political oligarchy; by the very same oligarchy that is at present regulating the global economy and which is ultimately responsible for the current crisis.

Ironically, the very same oligarchy that has been driving the world-economy toward a final collapse is at present blackmailing and threatening the world-economy with a final collapse, if it is not allowed to continue its course to drive world-economy into collapse.

Britain has no more money to borrow - CITY PARASITES SET FOR TRILLION CRASH

08-10-2008 08:09

The UK has no more money to borrow and even its existence is based on what it is worth in the financial industry, a made up thing where ordinary people fund the City on its potential. The City has been a parasite feeding off Londoners and the poor in the UK and the time has come for the fat bankers, lawyers and accountants to start paying for what they have done. RBS worked on leveraging but what was it actually worth, hardly anything but it bought off rail companies charging high prices for nothing, all the banks deserve nothing .... money is worthless

Welfare Reforms - Govt found to have misquoted research findings

07-10-2008 15:24

The Government has been exposed as completely misquoting a couple of researchers whose report they have used to justify the new workfare proposals in the Green Paper — “No one written off: reforming welfare to reward responsibility”, where the report based on a study of the effect on the labour market in Australia of the introduction of a workfare scheme there actually found that as a result, the very long term unemployed in fact grew by 68%!

ugly old tax thief new zealander judith mayhew wants Crossrail at any cost

07-10-2008 14:59

The no news commuter paper the Evening Standard gives New Zealander Judith Mayhew centre stage. Mayhew was effectively knighted for her City Corporation dirty work which destroyed the rights of the poor, took masses of corporate welfare and began a programme of displacing ordinary people in London to realise the dreams of property developers. According to Evading Standards, Mayhew is against the sex shops. She might be but I have never heard this woman talk about the lap top clubs sited in poorer parts of London which sit there to feed the worse types of the City. Mayhew like her disgusting City friends wants Crossrail scheme to provide transport needs for bankers and property profits for developers is supported by both Mayor Livingstone and Mayor Johnson. Thankfully Mayhew who is an insult to women has no children as she continues to drive her "any cost" policies in London.

'The Kyoto II Suffragettes' - climaterush

07-10-2008 13:51

A 1908 arrest
The Uk is fast approaching the 100th Suffragettes anniversary on the great parliament protest. Suitably, a demo is being organised to remember the date of October 13th when Emily Pankhurst and 23 other Suffragettes were arrested and thirteen men. What is different is the subject of the protest.

Instead of obtaining the vote one hundred years ago, it is now the environment and Kyoto II.
