09-10-2007 01:30

'the Climate Camp hijacked by liberals...'

05-10-2007 18:48

...argues a new zine! Shift aims to make a contribution to radical naval gazing with analysis of G8 and Climate Camp mobilisations. The approach is simple: capitalism is more than just 'us' versus 'them'. So you won't find any articles slagging off George Bush or Coca Cola in our pages.
