Power Shift 09 9th - 12th October

28-09-2009 13:11

Like never before seen here in the UK, from the 9th-12th October at the Institute of Education, young people - the generation most affected by climate change - are coming together for a 'Power Shift'. We will work together on building a youth climate movement that is going to do much more than just changing light bulbs.
Power Shift will bring together a thousand diverse young people for amazing speakers, original workshops and cutting edge bands. Power Shift is much more than just a conference - it is your chance to be a part of an exciting, effective and creative youth climate movement. Using the latest tools and techniques used in Obama's grassroots campaign - you'll learn how to talk about climate change in a way that inspires people to act and will give you a clear path to making change happen!

To find out more and to book your tickets please see or email us at

Power Shift. The future starts here. Are you there?

Al-Megrahi Was not the Lockerbie Bomber

28-09-2009 11:42

As I have previously stated, I can affirm that the FCO and MI6 knew that al-Megrahi was not the Lockerbie bomber.

I strongly recommend that you read this devastating article by the great lawyer Gareth Peirce, in the London Review of Books. Virtually every paragraph provides information which in itself demolishes the conviction. The totality of the information Peirce gives is a quite stunning picture of not accidental but deliberate miscarriage of justice.

Calibrating fear: The liquid bomb plot and the long war

28-09-2009 07:42

The conviction of Abdullah Ahmed Ali, 28, Tanvir Hussain, 28, and Assad Sarwar, 29, in relation to the liquid bomb plot has been seen as a major triumph for British police and intelligence efforts. Yet, despite this being the second re-trial, the prosecution was still only able to convict the three for conspiracy to murder, including their intent to bring down an airplane – but not to prove their capability to carry out the plot.

Iran is insisting that the US government abide by the non-proliferation treaty that the US originated and pushed and that Iran signed. But the US government, which is currently engaged in three wars of aggression and has occupying troops in a number of other countries, insists that Iran, which is invading and occupying no country, cannot be trusted with nuclear energy capability.
