BT’s £59 Million Investment in Arms

13-09-2009 22:55

From Banking on Bloodshed
After Tuesday’s protest against investors in the arms trade, Felix Allen in the Evening Standard reported that:

"A witness at the BT building said: “They came running in and jumped over the security barriers, smashing glasses and telephones.

“Some of them went up to two floors above, having a look round and writing graffiti.

“It could have been really frightening but when they started shouting about BT being involved in the arms trade I knew that they didn’t know what they were going on about. Then they must have got bored and left.”

The Standard leaves it at that, but we thought you might be interested to know more about BT’s investments in the arms trade.

Norman Borlaug, father of the Green Revolution, dies

13-09-2009 20:37 Story here and elsewhere about Norman Borlaug who was central to the so-called "Green Revolution" in the 1960s. It was about breeding high-yield crops (by natural cross-breeding, not genetic modification) to stave off famines caused by population explosion. I'm not really interested in celebrities like this in themselves, but I would like to know whether Indymedia readers think the Green Revolution was a good or a bad thing, in general.
