Currencies - not the problem; burning cars - not the solution.

24-10-2011 15:16

This article considers the mass-media and political elite discourse on 'saving' the Euro or 'leaving' it as a diversion from the real crisis problem. The solution from the majority point of view will not be advanced by, petrol bombs, burning cars or sectarian infighting, but on the development of a united movement with some basic policies.

Decoding the Battle of Syntagma Square as More Greek Austerity Bites

21-10-2011 17:48

Audio Greek 'Communists' defending representatives of international capital
As yet more austerity measures pile on the agony for the Greek working class, a potentially revolutionary situation is developing. In this period, the real relationships of various political forces to the working class are ever more nakedly expressed. But still, they must be identified, if Greek workers are to go from being what Marx called a "class in itself" to a "class for itself", and organise society in their own interests. In this article, I will seek to explain the different battle lines and formations, as they were drawn yesterday.

UG#573 - I Spit in The Face Of The Money God (Mike Ruppert, Collapsenik)

21-10-2011 14:48

We devote the whole show this week to a remarkable talk from 2011-09-11 by Michael Ruppert, who back in episode 95 became the first speaker on this show to question the events of Sep 11th. However, in this talk he says that 9/11 belongs to a 'bygone era' and he focuses instead on the urgent need to transition away from a paradigm of infinite growth and fiat currency.

UG#571 - Mother Nature Knows Best (Masanobu Fukuoka, Helen & Scott Nearing)

21-10-2011 14:31

This week we hear about three people who, unimpressed by technological 'progress', quit city life to live successfully off the land - all three of them remained active into their 90's. Although travelling widely, they remained rooted to their homestead farms. In our first hour, Masanobu Fukuoka, who researched no-till farming in Japan for decades before Bill Mollison and David Holmgren coined the word permaculture. In our second hour, an audio adaptation of a film on the life and death of US back-to-the-lander Helen Nearing, and her husband, Scott.

Happy 7th Billion Birthday

20-10-2011 06:36

With peak oil and climate change, the 7 billionth human coming at the end of October will find things very different from the 6 billion world of 1999. Robert Walker from the Population Institute in D.C. explains, in this Radio Ecoshock interview 2011-10-19. 21 minutes.

Dale Farm, the reality of Green Belt in Basildon.

19-10-2011 21:51

Dale Farm and industrial Basildon.
This image shows at the bottom the traveller Dale Farm site which has not been extended beyond the perimeter that you see here. The site is pretty much the same now as it was back then, although recent images do appear to show some depopulation. You can also see at the top, large-scale development including a retail park, sports playing field's, and in the top right hand corner, a large industrial park containing factories, businesses and some large international corporations. The rent paid by these businesses and corporations is way and above enough to help find the travellers a place to go. The dividing line between these developments is the A127, a very busy arterial road that runs from London right through to Southend on Sea. It is one of the busiest arterial roads in England.

The Dale Farm Eviction and the Whiff of Fascism

19-10-2011 13:35

Cops smash their way onto the property at 7 am
Despite courageous resistance by families and a group of activists, Basildon Council are continuing their eviction of Dale Farm residents, backed up by the iron fisted brutality of Essex riot cops. Harrowing and devastating though the episode is for the people being oppressed, it also has dark implications for society as a whole, in the UK and globally.

Britain’s Own Pravda-Style Propaganda: Ten Years Of ‘Involvement’ In Afghanistan

18-10-2011 14:16

Imagine Britain had been invaded and occupied by armed forces from another region of the world with China, for example, as a significant 'partner' in the 'coalition'. Imagine tens of thousands of Britons had been killed, and millions had fled as refugees. This is how the Chinese state broadcaster might report the invasion ten years hence:

'It's ten years this week since Chinese forces first became involved in Britain, and more than five years since they assumed responsibility for south-east England. So what's been achieved in that time?'

Rome 15 october Protest

17-10-2011 20:54

After years of protests against a corrupt and bungling Italian political system (whose Prime Minister makes laws for his own benefit) some of the protesters in Rome last Saturday apparently felt that walking through the capital with banners and slogans was a waste of time and energy.

St Paul's protests - Who is fleecing us and how?

17-10-2011 09:57

Yesterday I went around the "village" hearing a lot and telling a lot with anyone that wanted to tell and hear.

No doubt there is a lot of peaceful passion. But there's still enormous confusion around what exactly is the problem.

1. We know we are being fleeced big time.
2. We know from which direction we are being fleeced.
3. But we don't know exactly who is fleecing us, nor how.

This makes our case very poor in the eyes of the sleeping majority and the media.

UG#570 - The Fundamental Wrongness of 'Rights' (Law as Fiction)

15-10-2011 09:36

The show this week looks at the ideas of 'law' and 'rights'. As George Carlin says, if the government can take it away, it isn't a right, it's a privilege. A disturbing but important thought in these days in which governments worldwide are becoming more open about their subservience to expediency. We hear from a range of speakers, and our material ranges from the comic to the deadly serious.

UG#569 - The Light Within (Can Technology Make The Handicapped Whole?)

15-10-2011 09:32

This week we introduce a new author, Jacques Lusseyran. As a teenager, although completely blind, he organised some of the most effective French resistance to the Nazi occupation. We begin with a reading of Steve Talbott's Can Technology Make The Handicapped Whole? about techno-fixing human beings, which focuses on Lusseyran. Next, we read one of Lusseyran's essays, The Blind in Society. Finally, an interview with Laura Fogg, author of "Travelling Blind -- life lessons from unexpected places", on her experience of helping the blind to navigate.

15th October 2011: Birth of a Global Anti-Capitalist Movement?

14-10-2011 16:59

Global map of the 15th October Occupy X events
In my opinion, it is very likely that the historians of the future will look upon tomorrow as the day a truly global anti-capitalist movement was born. Following the example of Occupy Wall Street, Los Angeles, Boston, and hundreds of US towns and cities, a huge number of small and large occupations will begin on every continent except Antarctica (see Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, South America).

The Impact of Occupy Wall Street: Some Early Indicators

12-10-2011 14:30

A quote well-known among activists, variously attributed to Gandhi or US labor leader Nicholas Klein, says that “first they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.” In the space of just the past several weeks, it’s possible to discern the first three steps of this progression in the response of the US political, economic, and media elite to the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement. This fact should be a great source of encouragement for all those brave and dedicated individuals who have helped build this movement.
