UG#536 - Beyond Hierarchy (Anarchist Audiocollage)

29-01-2011 14:16

This week we mark a year since Lyn's last new episode by deviating from our usual format. Instead of a few separate speeches, an audio collage of speakers, some with backing music.

REVOLUTION: Can Egyptians revolt?

28-01-2011 23:45

Inspired by the Tunisian example, Egyptians take to the streets in their own protest. But can it last? ... The traditional wisdom has always been that Egyptians don't revolt simply because they are an agricultural society. Farmers require stability and patience to tend their land. Farmers also need a strong central government to protect them against natural disasters, such as floods and droughts. Egypt is no longer an agricultural society.

26-01-2011 22:42

It can always become worse. In 2009 5 members of the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) are tried to 15 - 65 years of detention in the Wild West. Why?
