They can then go away unhappy tourists.

3 years 2 days since the last - Mauritania has a coup.

06-08-2008 20:19

At first glance the news that the 147th richest (or 36th poorest) state on the planet with less than 4 million population has had yet another coup d'etat might not seem newsworthy. Until you realise that current European migration & "drug war" policies hinge on the amenability of the regime in the desert state.

Although the EU has only set aside €156 million of aid for 2008-2013 or roughly 54 million sterling a year - a myriad of agreements made since the last coup d'etat have allowed for the EU to start their southern border against migration in the buffer zone just the other side of our 2,720 km long security fence for Africa.

Does Channel 4 News fabricate stories for the MDC?

06-08-2008 12:32

Channel 4 News on 5 August 2008 produced the most obvious evidence that it uses dishonest PR tactics to support regime change in Zimbabwe. We are supposed to believe that a reporter for the Western media would travel into the Zimbabwean countryside with a self-confessed Zanu-PF thug to meet other Zanu-PF thugs!

Tilting at Windmills: The Future of the Climate Change Movement

04-08-2008 18:23

This essay, to be discussed at climate camp, elucidates some current problems with the Climate Camp, as demonstrated by the repression on the Kingsnorth, and demonstrate that a future trajectory can overcome them: just as the anti-roads movement transformed into the anti-globalisation movement in the UK by moving to the focus to the city and capitalism, moving the camps from the countryside to the city would make victory again possible.

Social War Not Climate Chaos Meetings at Camp

04-08-2008 18:11

Social War Not Climate Chaos! Starting Tuesday, daily meetings at the Scottish Barrio from 5-7 PM will explore how the climate crisis, a facet of the more general latest crisis in capitalism itself, can be used to build a new kind of autonomous social movement constituted as a material force...a force capable of confronting and ultimately halting capitalism. These meetings are not on the official climate camp workshop list, of course.

The death of Solzhenitsyn & the passing of good prisoners.

04-08-2008 17:42

"think about it"
As we all know Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn has died. With his passing we all have opportunity to comment on Gulags and the mechanisms of state terror & control used to create and maintain the Soviet system & also a duty to apply such criticisms to the mechanisms of state terror & control used to create and maintain Western hegemonies.

The best way to do that in my opinion is not to wax overly lyrical in phrase or wade needlessly deep in intellectual erudition. All we need do is cast a quick eye over how today the West as Russia prepares to lay Solzhenitsyn to rest.
