Peak Oil news - first instability and then the downslide

13-01-2006 17:01

Experts agree, we're either at or very close to peak oil productions which means we will soon be seeing supply fall below growing demand and see massive price rises for energy, transport, consumer goods and food. If you haven't clued yourself up on the implications of peak oil, it's time you did.

Meanwhile, it's business as usual... wind power getting slagged off, nuclear powers trying to maintain their monopoly on power and increasing conflict over dwindling oil reserves around the world.

Below you will find some of todays news stories which together help to reveal the state of our peaking civilization.

Simon Hughes - Blair's chosen one?

13-01-2006 14:48

Simon Hughes is one of the very few Liberal Democrat MPs not to vote for a public enquiry into the Iraq war. Could this be the reason Blair was kind to him and destructive to Ming on Wednesday?

Out-thinking, not out-fighting them (with art)

13-01-2006 14:17

Visionaries, 'idealists', and others daring towards their desires must move beyond shared powerless feelings. We are here for a reason, we have created and are creating our crucial projects. Understandings of reality and its origin are the keys to open the illusively impossible doors of fear and perpetual, everyday war. This article, with art included, goes over important truths while escaping 'Us vs. Them' constructs and at the same time promoting spirited *resistance consciousness*!

An environmental health warning on food? Why not? Alcohol does so, does tobacco so why not food that has travelled miles by HGV vehicles or air freight.

rioting breaks at out rampART

12-01-2006 16:06

Tonight (thursday) the free weekly cinema at the rampART is showing films related to the french riots.

During the last few weeks these riots have been used to fuel race hatred by nationalist and other right wing scum in the hope of gaining power and influence for their fascist agenda.

In France, Le Pen's Front National party has been milking the situation for all it's worth and apparently gaining support. Opinion poll commissioned by the newspaper Le Monde, suggest that only 39 percent of the French now believe that the views of the Front National party, are "unacceptable." That suggests up to 61 percent, now see Le Pen as a legitimate political candidate, along with his policies of compulsory mass expulsion of immigrants, including children born in France.

Moreover, the ideas and resentments that underpin Le Pen's message have become widespread. Nearly three out of four (73%) declared that "the traditional values of France are not adequately protected." while almost two out of three (63%), said that there are too many immigrants in France.

Le Monde also reported another poll organized by France's National Commission for the Rights of Man. It was accompanied by a confidential report to the Minister of the Interior, noting that "the word 'racist' has been liberated." Indeed it appears that the word is no longer used with shame in France. The poll found that 33% of French adults used the word 'racist' to describe themselves (in rural districts the percentage is even higher at 48%!). In the same poll a year ago, only 25 percent would call themselves 'racist.'

The poll showed that the public acceptance of racist attitudes is strongest among men, the elderly, skilled workers, small business people, company heads and workers. The report concludes that, "the end of the taboo against racism is confirmed by the finding that 63 percent of respondents said that certain behavior (by immigrants) can justify racist reactions."

Slightly less than the previous poll, this one reported that 56% thought that there were too many immigrants in France - even immigrants saying the same apparently! France has the highest proportion of immigrants in Europe with some 10 percent of the population, mostly of Islamic backgrounds in North Africa.

Racism appears to be making gains around Europe. In Belgium, the successor to the Vlaams Blok party (a party banned two years ago for it's 'extremism'), has 18% of the vote and is the second largest party in the Flemish parliament. It is also the largest party on Antwerp city where 'Mohammed' is now the most common name in new registrations of births.

In the UK, the British Nazi Party have also been striving to gain support for their fascist agenda by capitalising on peoples fear after the french riots. All over the internet you can find right wing websites exploiting stories of gang rape of white women by muslims men in order to fuel the race hate that gives them power.

Where the riots in france really race riots by terrorist inspired muslim youth or simply a class issue of alienation, discrimination and poverty? Whatever the answer that fact remains that tensions are growing as the cap between the haves and have nots widens under global capitalism and as the worlds finite resources are squandered at an ever increasing pace.

Just as George Galloway MP who unseat a 'Blair Babe' on 5 May 2005 gets himself entangled in another row over British media bias against him, we focus on how open is the lack of care ion the British 'mainstream news rooms' about what they want to say against Galloway. The DAILY MAIL is as inaccurate as Channel4 news online. And they don't seem to care how many facts they get wrong when publishing against George Galaloway !

Peak Oil Gathering - London

09-01-2006 17:47

Plans are being made to host a gathering on the issue of peak oil and it's implications. It will be be hosted at the rampART social centre, most likely sometime in February.

People are being sought to help organise the event and we are also keen to find out how much interest there is generally in the idea of the event. Please get in touch either if you would be interest in attending or in helping to organise the event...

Since nobody denies that peak oil will happen, the idea is to concentrate on likely timing and the implication and priorities for those who are currently campaigning on various issues in the hope of creating a better world.
