Keep Jeremy Corbyn!

30-06-2016 22:11

Readers, following the events of the last couple of weeks I would urge all of you to sign the following vote of confidence in Jeremy Corbyn. It is now more vital than ever that a socialist voice is heard in opposition to the impending move to the right. I for one don’t believe that Corbyn who was voted in less than a year ago with 59% of the vote (more than all the other candidates combined!) by the members should be without support at the recent behaviour of both Labour MPs in their coup attempt.

Stampede Resulted From Pyramid Scheme, Says Scientist

07-04-2016 10:19

The deadly stampede at Uzbekistan´s annual Uerobuy festival, the biggest religious event in the Asian country, resulted from a pyramid scheme in the organisation body, says Joschua Gewindeberg in an independent study by an internationalist association of researchers presented on the anti-government indymedia network. The incident had been cited by human rights organisations as a litmus test for the failure of the increasingly monopolised country´s constitution and justice system, as victims shied away from court appearances and the court appearance of a fireman requesting trauma compensation was declined with the argument that he was not a victim.

boomsatsuma presents Mother Foucault at new underground art venue in Bristol

29-02-2016 11:17

In Bristol lays an undiscovered treasure. Unseen for almost 50 years, the ash pits below Bristol Temple Meads station lead you to the former Working Men’s Club (closed over a decade ago, it’s a space befitting a Shane Meadows film). In this atmospheric venue known as The Loco Klub, boomsatsuma – a company fuelling the next generation of creative professionals – will present a series of rare and intimate events.

Megachurch Fusion Or Solar Encounter?

15-02-2016 20:54

When two men meet whose predecessors turned their backs against each other a millennium ago, does it make a sound? Easy one: If it were two comets passing by the Sun in that frequency, the public anticipation would have been swelling for years at least. But the meeting of the two Christian Bishops – Roman Catholic and Russian Orthodox – in a Cuban airport transit area – as secular a territorial status as one might imagine – was a surprise first of all to themselves. By the letter of the law, as activists are familiar with it, it is to be rated as a truly spontaneous demonstration.

ABAB is like a hint at a door to a person hitting its head against a wall. Of course, in the forest, where ABAB is real, there are neither walls nor doors, only heads and sometimes not even that. ABAB started as a thought experiment aimed at researching, documenting and correcting a fundamental flaw in the organisation of the human species that has put the lion´s share of it on an extinction track, and consequentially developed into a multiplication force of the archetypal knowledge for the survival thereof.

Radical Anthropology Talks in London, Spring 2016

02-01-2016 15:00

Tupiq Mask
Mythology as a window into other worlds
Tuesdays, 6.45–9.00pm

Language, art, music and culture emerged in Africa over 100,000 years ago, culminating in a symbolic explosion or ‘human revolution’ whose echoes can still be heard in myths and cultural traditions from around the world. These talks are a general introduction to social and biological anthropology, ranging over fields as diverse as hunter-gatherer studies, mythology, primatology, archaeology and archaeoastronomy. Radical Anthropology brings indigenous rights activists, environmentalists, feminists and others striving for a better world together with people of all ages who just want to learn about anthropology. There is always time for questions and discussion after each talk and there are good local pubs for those wishing to socialise into the evening.

UG#726 - The Flight From Death (Importance of Death Anxiety, Operation Gladio 3)

26-12-2015 23:19

In our 15 year history, we have addressed a wide range of topics. It is a rare episode which tackles a new topic, an even rarer one in which we tackle a new topic with such direct relevance to so many earlier shows. Today's show fits that description, examining the theories of cultural anthropologist Ernest Becker, that fear of our own mortality is a topic of unparalleled importance - but one that human psychology encourages us to shy away from rather than to properly address. For an example of the dangers of living without due skepticism of "immortality symbols" we conclude with part 3 of our ongoing adaption of Allan Francovich's film about Operation Gladio.

ICJ bans hitchhunters

02-12-2015 14:05

It broke out on Tamil Elam, spread through India and Israel, and from there into Europe and the Americas: Hitchhunters – regime agents masquerading as people like you and me taking a hitchhiker. They have long been a threat to social sanity, since no one except a total newbie would enter a car whose driver has preyed on their communications without getting prepared for a fight over their ego´s steering wheel. You know that you have a hitchhunter when it is beginning to mention details from your phone calls with your grand mother, the Pink Fishbowl Guide says. Now international jurisdiction has stopped the practice as incompatible with human rights.
