Barclays blockaded over arms trade shares

19-12-2014 13:14

Today Smash EDO and Brighton Palestine Action blockaded Barclays Bank for an hour before activists were removed. The action was part of a campaign aimed at forcing the bank to have nothing to do with shares in Elbit Systems, Exelis (EDO MBM's parent company), BAE, Raytheon and other arms companies.

Why Is the Islamic State Morally Right to Debug the Big Lie?

18-12-2014 15:01

When learning of corruption, most readers will have an idea of cash money buying a small official, a local leader or maybe even an influential opinion maker. But one instance of system-wide corruption, such as incorporated by the dynasty in Riyadh, can be more damaging in result than a myriad of small scale cases – indeed the rot at the top of a hierarchy induces a steady renewal of it everywhere below. The same is the case with the so-called “cyber war” – a privileged spying racket somewhere can be a worse threat to digital freedom than all less centralised instances of criminal hacking of user passwords and banking codes and so forth. In fact the systematic spying is the origin of a significant share of petty data crime. Such as the use of paper money brought about a historical escalation of corruption, the use of “drones” does with “cyber war” – entirely outmatching the earlier problems of metal impurity resp. veteran disorder.
