Military, bankers, big oil and and royalty discuss Iran invasion

09-06-2005 21:19

A typical scene
Here is a rare fly-on-the wall glimpse at how deeply power corrupts. It corrupts those who wield it. And it corrupts those who seek to influence those who wield it. Media have long been part of the world of elites. The free press is a myth when powerful people own it. Only when many small people own it will it be a truly free press, and will on our "right to know" be possible.

Silent Violence

09-06-2005 15:18

If you like peace the notion of silent violence may be uncomfortable - disturbing even. But the elements that make violence what it is; fear, pain, danger, and death are all contained within deprivation. The only difference perhaps is that one is a result of aggression and the other a result of ignorance.

G8 Great? Debt and the art of deception

09-06-2005 09:53

It's all getting a bit weird... the lines are bing blured and the goal posts unclear. The PR machine throwing white wash and confussion into the mix as the G8 summit approaches. With climate change and African poverty apparently the key issues on the official agenda and the great and the good of planet celebrity all pledging support, and even corporations getting in on the game, it's no wonder people are getting confused.

Genoa G8 retrospective (Sat 11th, London)

07-06-2005 14:08

With plans for massive protests in Scotland next month for the 2005 G8 summit now developing rapidly, this event at the rampART offers a chance to look back at learn from the experiences of the 2001 G8 summit in Genoa.

"300.000 people were protesting in july 2001 against the g8 in Genoa: the collective dream 'another world is possible' turned into a nightmare overwhelmed by the violence by the police, finding it's climax in the murder of Carlo Giuliani."

Saturday 11th June (after the Naked Bike Ride and before the Reclaim The Future Party so you don't have to miss out on anything and can experience a real roller coaster of highs and lows)

This is a chance to speak and share experiences with people who took part in the protests against the G8 in 2001. This is not an event intended to scare anyone. It is an important chance to reflect and learn and most importantly PREPARE for Scotland...

What happened in Genoa? Why did it happen? Could it have been avoided or handled better? What does any of this mean for us this July? What precautions and preparation should we be making and are we!? These are just some of the possible valuable questions we can discuss on Saturday.

  • Were you in Genoa? Please come to rampART on saturday and share your experiences of the event and the aftermath.
  • Are you going to Scotland? Please come on saturday and ensure you are fully aware of what lessons our collective history may have to offer.
  • Are you party of a team working on accomodation, alt media, legal monitoring, or medical aid etc for Scotland? Please come let people know what is being organised and how they can help.

Anthony Padgett

Scientific American's Dishonest Attack On 911Research

03-06-2005 22:56

moments before collapse
Shermer uses an array of deceptive methods to persuade the reader that challenges to the official story of the 9/11 attack are worthy only of ridicule and should not be scrutinized. His primary technique is to use hoaxes and unscientific ideas -- long promoted on the web and in videos -- to bracket the valid ideas that he seeks to shield the reader from. That Shermer went to such great lengths to thoroughly misrepresent the painstaking, scientific, evidence-based work of 911Research is a testament to the site's success.
