Castor: Big Blockade in Gorleben removed

11-11-2008 13:11

On Saturday, 8th November, several hundred people began a blockade of the main gate of the temporary disposal site in Gorleben by sitting on the street. The action began directly after the Big Demonstration against the Castor transport, held in Gorleben. The blockaders, who numbered over 1000, were not removed by the police until Monday afternoon - 2 days after their action began. Wood and rope constructions, including numerous unmanned tripods and several tents, supported the crowd, as well as several tractors, and two activist climbers who hung a banner between two streetlamps directly over the Main Gate.´

It was relatively easy for the public (or fellow activists) to approach the blockade even into Monday afternoon, just before the blockade was removed. There was a huge police presence but it seemed that most cars could pass without being checked or even stopped. To see this lively crowd felt impressive and the atmosphere was bright and happy.

Obama Mania

11-11-2008 02:27

In the 1970s, the Rockefellers (America's most powerful family) chose Jimmy Carter for president after the turbulent Nixon years. Gerald Ford went along as window dressing. The same process repeated in 2008 to decompress after eight toxic Bush years. A needed respite for the country, the world, and humanity. A new party and face to appear different from the old one. Who better chosen than the first black president (a stroke of genius some believe) to deflect attention from the past and focus it all on him and the task he faces.

The Triangle Of Peace Foundation: Redefining Sinister, Shitting On Us All

10-11-2008 14:19

What can you say about an advert that fills an entire page of a broadsheet newspaper, containing a title (”The Triangle Of Peace Foundation”), a heavy duty strapline (”The birth of Philanthropical Capitalism, a new global responsibility.”), an address in New York (”Triangle of Peace, 420 Lexington Ave, Suite 518, New York, NY 10170 USA”) and a section of some kind of stylised monolith, all tastefully decked out in black and white?

The Obama '08 Phenomenon: What We have Learned?

10-11-2008 09:52

There is no doubt that history has been made, "for reasons that go beyond
the obvious `first Black' aspect of race." 2008 was the first year in modern
history that Blacks made no demands on the Democratic candidate - and
consequently, were promised nothing. This was the election cycle in which
the Black who began as a supposed "underdog" became the most heavily-funded
candidate of all time. There are many lessons to be learned - but few of
them palatable to folks still drunk on ObamaL'aid.

Thousands March to Show No! Welcome 4 State mUrDeRers!

09-11-2008 18:01

Ireland, Iraq - End the Occupations!
Thousands of people turned out to the Sinn Fein rally/march today (Sun 2
Nov) which opposed the 'home coming' parade by the notorious RIR regiment of
the British Army.

There was a large Ógra Shinn Féin presence on the day, with young
republicans travelling from across Ireland.

The rally/march was calling for an end to the ongoing illegal occupations in
Ireland, Iraq, and Afghanistan and also to demand the truth for the hundreds
of families who have been bereaved through the official British state policy
of collusion and state murder. The UDR/RIR themselves where part and parcel
of the murder machine.

Italian Student rebellion: Info and Pics from Rome

7 November 2008

This friday everybody skipped school again and took to the streets instead. Even though minister Gelmini had tried to confuse things by promising extra money for universities and students with “adequate merits”, the student mobilisation went on and its message was clear: “No cuts to education, no privatization, we ain’t gonna pay for their crisis”.
