Wrexham joins National Day of Protest Against WCA & Maximus

02-03-2015 16:35

A national day of action was called for Monday 2 March to protest the ongoing use of the discredited Work Capability Assessments to determine fitness for work or otherwise and to leave Maximus, the company that has taken over from Atos to carry these out, in no doubt that resistance will be ongoing.

2 March is the first working day of Maximus' new contract and protests were held in 30 UK towns and cities including here in Wrexham and at Maximus HQ in central London. A solidarity demo was also organised in Toronto at the offices of Maximus Canada. In Wrexham, there was a small but highly visible protest outside the DWP and Medical Examination Centre on Grosvenor Road.

Southern Health NHS Trust, a Drowning and a Call for Better Care Everywhere

19-01-2015 15:59

Connor Sparrowhawk aka Laughing Boy

A young man is left in a bath to drown while in the care of Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust, led by Chief Executive Katrina Percy, who sees no reason to resign in spite of ongoing failings at facilities she is ultimately responsible for.

A recent inspection report at the only remaining in-patient service on the same site has identified problems that include extremely stressed and exhausted staff on duty and on call for unacceptably long hours because of under-staffing. This is not a problem confined to Southern Health, but what are we going to do about it?

Trip to the edge of the world

29-12-2014 20:53

Life seems so much of a rat race at times with stress from pressures of work, stress from unemployment, stress from relationship problems, stress from homelessness, extreme stress from constant wars which are essentially driven by Western greed for control of resources for endless consumption at home. It’s enjoyable to look at what a smaller, gentler world looks like.

One Feeds Two Logo
One Feeds Two is a new food initiative supported by Sir Richard Branson. As food companies partner with One Feeds Two, each meal they sell signifies a school meal will be donated to a child in a poverty stricken country. This allows the child to go to school and not have to work just to survive. This means that the child will help raise themselves, their families and their communities out of poverty.

Deep Forest Poetry

14-09-2014 11:04

Where public life suffers oppression, freedom is on the run. The long march to the future beyond a time that has no future becomes the only escape from the destructive forces of capitalism. The project to get and remain ahead the distorted imagination of the death squads of civilisation becomes an existential impulse. The woods or what is remaining thereof becomes the most important if not condition of victory then obstacle of defeat, and the elementary techniques of life here have changed little over the recent millennia.

Double Emergency Alert: Ebola Acceleration, Internet Smokescreen

08-08-2014 17:30

Seemingly unrelated to each other, two current developments make the world appear like a patient from whose bed it seems difficult to walk away. A hygiene catastrophe is likely to become more deadly than war, and unlike in the Fukushima case in this instance out in the open. Second, a tsunami of rumours about internet privacy breaches has stirred up many who otherwise share little else with each other. Each of this shall be discussed and analysed here with the due precision and brevity to provide the essential knowledge to extinguish these catastrophes with their roots. But first it is necessary to understand how the two relate to each other. It is no mere coincidence that such profound threats against the bodily and mental health of huge populations are occurring in concert. The two layers of symptoms are resulting from the same health catastrophe which has affected the world and expresses itself both in neglect and in repression. What now is visible to the bare eye are the side-effects of a disease befalling species like this and its amplification of the conditions of its own existence at the price of the survival of these species. The full image of that disease, how it can be recognised and how it can be prevented, including its name, will be provided in this report.
