Is Allah leading the march for Jihad to progress for the worlds poor?

07-01-2008 06:36

Is Allah leading the march for Jihad to progress for the worlds poor?
The Muslim world, a large sector of poor humanity is already on the march against imperialism, its imposed oil wars, military occupations and economic domination and environmental and wealth pillaging. Many of these Muslim peoples believe that a democratic Allah himself is on the march too. This adds to their confidence in themselves. After all they have been achieving a great deal of success in their struggles against “Great Satan” in recent years.Understanding "Jihad"

Manchester NO2ID Logo

Manchester NO2ID has very busy since our November meeting. As well as our regular street stall, we've flyered the Lord Mayor of Manchester [1] at the Central Library, held an emergency street stall [2] in the light of the HMRC data leak, and reached the Information Commissioner himself [3] at an ICO conference in Manchester.

These are all great actions, and thanks to everyone who's shown up and helped out; we've been getting our points across to an increasingly sympathetic public, and also to people in positions of power, reminding them that we exist and cannot be ignored.

Crash 2008: ¡Que no sigan robando!

06-01-2008 16:31

La economía de la conspiración
¿Cómo el neoliberalismo capitalista ha llegado a este punto de estafa y banca rota? Hace falta saber el cómo pero sobre todo cómo responder.

Porque mira, puede que Trichet, gobernador “TODOPODEROSO” del Banco Central Europeo, equivoque los objetivos que no es combatir la inflación (como pretenden neocons y especuladores) sino contribuir a un sistema económico eficiente y estable donde la banca no viva de la especulación monumental y sea un servicio fiable para la economía productiva y el progreso. Es decir, no solo basta con coordinarse los bancos Centrales sino que también tienen que participar los gobiernos coordinadamente con medidas fiscales incluso sobre el tráfico de capitales y los paraísos fiscales (que deberíamos llamar repito “cuevas de ladrones”). No puede ser posible que Trichet con el objetivo-pretexto de combatir la inflación lo único que consiga sea ahogar más a la economía, las empresas y las familias trabajadoras a la vez que permite que los que especulen y roban se sigan llenando los bolsillos. Sorry for Spanish.
