'Supreme Master' cult promote breatharianism

30-04-2010 01:07

The 'Supreme Master' cult have come to prominence in the UK vegan scene in recent years. The bleach blonde 'enlightened' cult leader 'Supreme Master Ching Hai' has an estimated 20,000 followers world wide mostly in Taiwan and other parts of South East Asia but increasingly in Europe and the US. They are prominent in the UK at animal rights and vegan events and have opened two restaurants in London (Peking Palace and Loving Hut). They have a tv channel on Sky tv (in the UK) which mostly features programmes with the repetitive messages on the virtues of the 'Supreme Master' and her magical mediation method, promoting veganism/health and the environment.

Harmless enough? Yes, but the cult has taken a sinister turn recently, promoting through their programmes the idea of 'breatharianism'. The untrue idea that a person can live without food or water.

Anti-nuclear protests in Germany – "We'll be wherever they don't want us to be"

27-04-2010 11:09

After long years of agony, the anti-nuclear movement has reported back with full force. At Germany's largest anti-nuclear protests ever, some 150.000 people demonstrated last Saturday against the plans of the conservative-led German administration to revoke the nuclear phase-out compromise. Wherever parties didn't dominate the picture, the claims went much further – the call for demonstration in Biblis in southern Hesse demanded an immediate exit. Also, the close connection between nuclear energy and our capitalist society was addressed.

09-04-2010 15:12

Saturday 8th May 2010, 10:30-18:30, St. Brides Centre, Douglas, South Lanarkshire

Despite the Scottish government’s ambitious Climate Change Bill, the coal industry in Scotland grows day by day as companies profit while the communities who are directly affected by this are ignored.

We believe in the power of community and that people can combine forces and work together to resist the many negative aspects of coal; from the destruction of local wildlife habitats and community health to the global effects of climate change.
