15nd September 2006 | Issue 560 - GATES-CRASHER - Bill Gates and Microsoft have climbed to the top of the computer industry though sheer ruthless corporate behaviour. Still, why not ditch that pirate copy of Windows and move to a free alternative based on the notion that information should be free - GNU Linux...

9-11 - Bush in Alien conspiracy shocker

8th September 2006 | Issue 559 - TRUTH-ACHE - It’s the big fight over ‘the truth’. In the blue corner we have the US government’s official version of 9-11 events and in all the other corners we have proponents of various ‘conspiracy’ theories. But in these days of governments caught telling outright lies about WMDs etc, and a massive groundswell of cynicism about any official pronouncement - just what is a conspiracy theory? What happens when ‘common sense’ is hijacked and the fringe goes mainstream?

1st September 2006 | Issue 558 - DRAXIS OF EVIL - “Shutting down a power station isn’t enough to stop climate change but it’s a start.” - spokeswoman for climate camp protesters.

Big up to the 600 or so residing at the Camp For Climate Action, on a squatted site set against the backdrop of the Drax power station’s enormous cooling towers in north Yorkshire (See SchNEWS 546). Drax, the biggest the coal fired power station in Europe kicks out a massive 7% of the UK’s megawatts and emits as much CO2 as a quarter of Britain’s vehicle fleet.

25th August 2006 | Issue 557 - READY? CHARGE! - Surviving the day after tomorrow - The double-whammy of peak oil and climate change have recently become much more mainstream, but the (if you’ll pardon the expression) ‘roadmap’ to a sustainable future is still very sketchy. Of course our governments are still too focussed on unsustainable growth of an oil-based economy to do anything much about either issue. But there’s little point in waiting for them to sort it out, when there’s so many positive ideas and capacity for real change to be found at the community and grassroots level.

18th August 2006 | Issue 556 - ON THE FIDEL -
Battle for the future of Cuba after Castro -
Fidel Castro’s laid up in bed, with possibly weeks to live. He’s had to hand the reins of power to his brother Raul, only five years younger and not terribly popular. Cuba’s status as an alternative model of development for Latin America is clearly under threat. Over the water in Miami thousands of exiled Cubans were disappointed that Old Fifi made his 80th birthday earlier this week (13th August) but it’s the end of an era and what happens next is the hot topic on the streets of Havana.

UN's pathetic attempts to stop a belligerent Israel attacking Lebanon
click for bigger image

11th August 2006 | Issue 555 - AXIS OF OIL -
It seems as if attempts in the UN to obtain a ceasefire between Hizbollah and Israel have failed. As Israel pours more troops across Lebanon’s borders, the war’s escalation threatens a cataclysm. Is Lebanon destined to play the overture to a far wider middle-eastern war? It is this fear coupled with solidarity with the Lebanese people which has sparked a resurgence in the UK anti-war movement.

A New Non-American Century

14th July 2006 | Issue 551 - BI-POLAR DISORDER - In the lead up to the G8 summit in Russia, we look at the rising power of China, Russia and others, and ask - whatever happened to the neo-con plans for a 'new American century'? And who are the 'Shanghai Five?

30th June 2006 | Issue 549 - TSARS IN THEIR EYES - Putin puts the boot in ahead of the G8 Summit meeting in Russia - One year on from Gleneagles (we can’t believe it – poverty’s still not history!), the G8 circus is re-forming (but almost certainly not reforming) for a St Petersburg-based shindig over the weekend of 15-17 July. As activists gear up for the most full-on anti summit mobilisation yet, the Russian state is already cracking down on those who might disrupt or inconvenience its chairmanship of the world’s most powerful club.

9th June 2006 | Issue 547 - PRICKS AND MORTAR - Placing an even greater burden on dwindling water supplies, bureaucrats have come up with a scheme to build another 200,000 new houses in the South East by 2020, with government white-coats showing their dry wit by claiming that the new builds will only need an increase of 0.1% of water usage. Either way this plan is madness considering there are currently 84,000 empty properties in the South East, and almost 730,000 nationally.

12th May 2006 | Issue 543 - FLOWER POWER - Resistance to police repression grows in Mexico - In Texcoco, (just east of Mexico city) a flower market was the flashpoint for a bloody showdown between the state and a local community hell-bent on self-rule and autonomy. All this took place against the backdrop of the Mexican elections and the Zapatista inspired 'Alternative Campaign' which is touring the country attempting to build an anti-capitalist coalition.
