Corporate publishing houses

For all the bad press that they receive, a lot of people still believe that Western corporations are making some sort of contribution to improving the lot of people in the third world. Let me present a counter-example.

Burma: Pressure Shows Results : (Keep It Up: Sat :Tate 11am to T Sq)

last night the burmese "junta" agree to open talks with the democratically elected burmese peoples representation, after a meeting with the UN rep . . . .
The media spin of "doom doom" in the west, with the odd "deprioritisation" of this sort of mould-breaking news - with its echoes of the end of apartheid in south africa, or the irish peace processes "key moments" - is suspicious, but . . . . breaking news???? MUCH TO DO, keep up pressure, but FIGHT THE HYPE too! Read more >>

The Atmosphere Is Not For Sale

I feel like an eco-fraud. There’s me thinking that we should be protecting the land, the sea and the atmosphere from the profit motives of large corporations, and then a big group of like-minded people come along with a signed document saying the opposite and repeatedly hit you round the face with it.

Burma : The Old Covert Ops Criminal Types Tax Haven Of Choice

1 : daily demos, 12 - 1 lunchtime . . . . BURMESE EMBASSY 19a charles st,
2 : this sunday, 11.30 trafalgar square to the Burmese Embassy
3 : pass these facts to media types, those with actual influence. . . . each other!
4 : where you are, all the time, if you could : researching the publicity organs or western corporations trying to influence media opinions, or playing "tail wag dog" games with some of the "junta". There is talk of recent actions of some soldiers seeming those of "automatons", or use of drugs to machinate them in these current times . . . . its possible some of this has more subtle effects, but Read more >>

We are ALL burmese, in this little 2007 world .Cyberslavery. . . . then you?

In london, the address of the burmese embassy is necessary to discover it . . . . this lunchtime the present day "representation" had hidden their flag.
Shame, or cowardice . . . . people are choosing against the cyberslavery put upon them in test case new deliberate designs of "repression-cities", as much a test for the world as was the nazi slave labour deathcamps - or peenemunde. Could global institutions have had pride in their actions if the retort to, say, the attempts at a breakout in Sobibor have limits of stopping the passports or overseas credit of the Auschwitz troops? A town a week is destroyed as we "wait."

Cleaning House : the dodgy functionaries in whitehall . . . .etc

. . . . the people that leave MOD procurement to join US-based arms corporations seem to have got very little publicity in comparison to the MPs or political appointees that put a foot wrong to the tune of getting a couple of extra trips out of expenses . . . . the "rotten burrough" of westminster that threw poor people out of theit homes to install influential friends was checked out, but this creeping petty criminal coup of " you scratch my back i scratch yours" is asking for much sharper enquiries - despite the large amount of sacrificial patsies it has got waiting, "pseudo-group" omertas, or old pre-"cyberbullying" scams it twists.

Upsidedown begging bowls! Spititual traditions reject the "Muggers" Tithe: Burma

recent NEWS . . . . monks take casualties to shield people, to protect future free thought, to keep the integrity of parents, mothers mothers, fathers fathers, to break the "western" media shrug-blockade.

Demos at embassy - easy access - loads of tubes, buses etc,(google Burma Embassy location)
Pressure good - of serious sorts - see comment with "time for movement against war to evolve"-
"voice of democracy burma" also has background.
"boom, boom" - people ARE dying - but - ACT.
Open door - push. Despite the "media-opinion-influencers" doomgloom-crusade that is something we should all expect, then see past, this IS a moment for burma, etc. In burma the armed forces high-ups must have a mix of opinions about all this - they did ALLOW that democratic election in recent times - despite reneging upon its results - so if they are encouraged to listen - forced to listen - to people saying they should come to some accomodation with the democratic forces - but allowed a way out of the current-dictatorship situation too, a responsible, bounce-back global popular bit of effort, with imagination, acceleration, etc, then GLOBAL peoplepower should work.
Without ruling out actual armed intervention, with the actual or tacit support of china - perhaps with the involvement of china too - of a multi-national force - several different SHARP economic measures are possible that dont harm the poulation, or are so fast in effect, that , say, with fooddrops etc the iraq disaster of almost deliberately stupid economic measures could teach us how to do it a different way. But all the actual gravytrain corporate types in the west - or "offshore tax havens" as most are these days - shouldnt get away with the usual distractions this time - or the twisting of the news against china for some old "coldwar replay" either.
I Expect the media spin to show a "threpressionwastotalitsallover" - but, in actual fact - its "boomboom - they've blown the bloody doors off!"
That media blockade is extinct.

If you are in the media, or a spiritual tradition, different religion, different culture or different people - these shots might get used as a "media-influencers attempt at a full stop" or you might see it as a sort of trumpet intro for the new "drum'n'bass" of a quickening, STRENGTHENING pulse - with a grin that reflect strength back to you - that reminds you of what it is to act WITH the good spirits, the good intentions of community- of all people - if we are to have a free future - or a future at all.

The BBC and 'others' 'war' on George Galloway - a Bethnal Green commentary-1

By©Muhammad Haque
1150 GMT
London Sunday 23 September 2007

Last Friday's edition of the BBC2 programme 'NEWSNIGHT' promoted the voters-rejected candidate Oona King as if she had just come back from climbing Mount Everest! As had the Andrew Neill-fronted 'THIS WEEK' slot the previous night shown on BBC1. There is such an acceptance of this token of 'multiple ethnicities and affiliations' being flaunted on all the mainstream media channels that the ordinary people face a serious risk of being almost told that defeat at an election in Britain no longer means that.

Crossrail- latest costs deadlock is symptomatic of the spin rail. Scrap it

UK Transport Secretary Ruth Kelly has given a publicly stated deadline of next Tuesday by when the City of London and Big Business interests should come up with 'real money'. She has been reported to have asked to see the colour of the Big Business money. This impasse has been
painted in the pro-Crossrail Big Business media including the Financial Times and by the USA outlet Bloomberg as an unfair demand on the conglomerates. They are citing this demand as evidence of sloppy and unrealistic thinking on the part of Gordon Brown's administration. This is not so. The problem lies with the sloppiness and the lack of merit in the present Crossrail plan itself.
