click for bigger image

5th March 2004 | Issue 444 - MINER SURGERY - On March 1st, 1984, Margaret Thatcher announced the closure of Cortonwood colliery in Yorkshire - signaling her government’s determination to ram through a massive programme of pit closures and destroy the power of the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM). Miners had no choice but to fight, or see their lives and communities devastated. The longest major industrial battle in British history had begun - a battle that still defines the political landscape of today.

31st October 2003 | Issue 429 - SIAM OLD STORY - SchNEWS reckons that before he was president, the furthest George W had ever been from his ranch was Disneyland.

Now - while SchNEWS knows that cars can kill and aren’t too good for the environment we reckon that Apache fighter jets, landmines and cluster bombs are just a tad more harmful to civilians. This is the sort of euphemistic blather coming from the suits this week at Europe’s biggest arms fair - Defence Systems and Equipment International (DSEi).

WTO meeting in Cancun

8th August 2003 | Issue 417 - MAI EYE! - It was hailed by the economists as the organisation that would bring about global prosperity - where the weakest nations of the world would be put on the same footing as the most powerful. But the WTO’s rulings have produced a ‘race to the bottom’ with every environmental, health or safety policy it has had to rule on deemed an illegal barrier to trade. Now with its fifth Ministerial meeting approaching next month in Cancun, Mexico, the World Trade Organization is in crisis and heading for deadlock.

RFiD chips

6th June 2003 | Issue 408/409 - G8 MY HAMSTER - Evian famous for its bottled water was instead busy last week bottling bullshit, as the leaders of the G8 summit meet to squabble over the spoils of war.

30th May 2003 | Issue 407 - GET YER ROCKS OFF! - “In Iraq, there was a government holding valuable resources the U.S. could not control. So the U.S. took action.
