What is "money"? Is it the same as "currency"? What about gold?

10-01-2012 09:52

What is money? Everyone talks about it, but what is it exactly? Why did we created it the first place? A lot of people seem to blame money for all the problems in the world, and yet "money makes the world go round".
In order to truly understand what is happening today, we must first explore how money came to be, and the purpose it serves.

#Occupy and the Church

09-01-2012 14:13

“What would Jesus do?” asked a pithy placard at the Occupy the London Stock Exchange protest recently. It seems rather obvious in a way. For some the answer was given in another St Paul’s placard, carried by a man dressed as Jesus “I threw out the money-lenders for a reason”. Of course we’re not in Jerusalem, nor are we technically in a temple.

Public squatting in the U$A on the up

08-01-2012 15:30

Although it is hard to hear what is really happening on the ground in U$A, it appears that recently there has been an increase in squatting in cities across the United States. Obviously, squatting is often a covert activity, but it seems that a few factors have dovetailed to facilitate the emergence of a new, public squatting movement. This short article will provide a background to these events and a report of the actions which we have heard about. Hopefully these are merely the tip of the iceberg....

Ruling Class Plays Divide and Rule Over Abbott Tweet

05-01-2012 15:50

Labour's Shadow Health Minister Diane Abbott is facing widespread media calls for her resignation this afternoon, after Tweeting that "'White people love playing 'divide & rule'". The instant furore illustrates much that is malevolent about the corporate media, and ironically enough provides a perfect example of how the ruling class plays divide and rule.

The murder of Stephen Lawrence & institutional racism - an overview

05-01-2012 13:18

The deeper exploration of the facts surrounding the murder of Stephen Lawrence & the expose of institutional racism in the UK, most particularly the revelation that whilst the original prosecuting officers were knee deep in association with criminal activity with a father of one of the accused (David Norris), one can also question how at the time of the non-investigation into Stephen Lawrence's murder, a public trial into the death of young David Norris' uncle also called David Norris who was a police informant which was happening at the same time may have threatened to expose criminal cartels operating in 3 specialist police squads operating in south-east - one of which included association with gangster Kenneth Noye (who is/was also a freemason).

Why Liam Byrne is Misleading on the Beveridge Settlement

03-01-2012 17:35

Beveridge shored up the ruling class by proposing concessions to workers
Seventy years ago, William Beveridge's Report of the Inter-Departmental Committee on Social Insurance and Allied Services was presented to Parliament. The Report had a huge influence on policy, effectively providing a blueprint for the social democratic 'welfare state'. Though far from a revolutionary document, it still proposed far-reaching reforms, which were huge concessions to the working class following the struggles of the first Great Depression and World War Two.

Finance, Fat-Cats And Fascism.

02-01-2012 11:19

As increasing authoritarian measures are taken by governments, under the prodding of the financial sectors of the economy, governments in Europe and the west begin to emulate some of the authoritarian developments in the 1930's. Developments which were also prompted by a severe economic and financial crisis.

Unsustainable Israeli Politics of Exclusion in Jerusalem

31-12-2011 16:45

While the history of the world is moving decisively toward a culture of inclusion, diversity and pluralism, Israeli politics seems to challenge history by moving in the opposite direction of exclusion and unilateral self - righteous monopoly of geography, demography, history, archeology and culture, especially in Jerusalem.

Longshore Workers, Truckers: Shut the Ports, Coast to Coast!

30-12-2011 01:23

Ports up and down the West Coast were blockaded, from Seattle to San Diego. Despite a barrage of hostile propaganda in the media, opposition from union bureaucrats and heavy police repression in some places, overall the blockade was successful – this time. The blockade was called in solidarity with longshore workers fighting a union-busting assault in Longview, Washington and with port truckers seeking union recognition in the ports of Los Angeles/Long Beach. This support should have been greeted. Instead, the union bureaucracy attacked the port blockade, although longshore workers respected the picket lines. But now the class war on the West Coast docks is coming to a head, and it can’t be waged from the outside. Bay Area labor has called for a caravan to Longview. The goal should be a real occupation of the terminal by the workers to prevent the loading of the scab cargo. Longshore militants have called on the longshore unions to shut down every port on the West Coast, and the East and Gulf Coasts, to smash EGT’s union-busting. Can it be done? Yes, but only though sharp struggle against the pro-capitalist labor bureaucracy.
