Trashzilla - the monster from the trash vortex

15th Feb 2008 | Issue 620 - GARBAGE GAIA - this is not a bad horror b-movie script: there is a monster slick of degrading plastic matter which floats just under the surface of the Pacific Ocean. No plastic doesn't 'biodegrade', it simply breaks down to smaller particles - which are toxic to marine life.

8th Feb 2008 | Issue 619 -COUNTER PUNCH - as SchNEWS rounds up the usual suspeces in another crackdown...
Just when they thought that you weren’t looking, Neo Labour is have another bash at any piddling law getting in the way of their crackdown on er ‘terrorists’. This time the Counter Terrorism Bill proposes to introduce a range of new powers to share (or lose) data, imprison people without charge for longer periods of time and generally broaden the meaning of the word ‘terrorism’ and the police’s power to do whatever they want about it.

1st Feb 2008 | Issue 618 - CHANGE OF P.A.C.E.
Sweeping changes to the legal aid system are going to mean that thousands who find themselves dragged into the legal system are going to find themselves without proper legal advice: instead of being offered a solicitor of your choice, you will now be put onto a 'call centre' not answered by trained legal advisors, but often ex-police.

25th January 2008 | Issue 617 - WALL SHOOK UP - The Gaza Strip, which serves as an open air prison for its 1.5 million inhabitants, is abandoned by the international community as it was subjected to medieval siege tactics. So someone has staged what must be the biggest prison break-out in history...

“What people outside the animal rights movement don’t seem to appreciate is that once these moves have been practised on us, they are expanded to everyone expressing dissent – just look at how PHA injunctions attacked first us, then the peace movement, then the environmentalists and finally the climate camp” - an Animal Rights Legal Advisor

23rd November 2007 | Issue 612 - DOUBLE JEOPARDY - Stung by criticism over the farcical restrictions on protest outside parliament, Gordon Brown pledges a review of the controversial sections 132 to 138 of the Serious Organised Act (SOCPA). Initially this law seemed tailored specifically for one Brian Haw, permanent resident of Parliament Square, but it subsequently caught more than a few others in its dragnet...

2nd Nov 2007 | Issue 610 - LICENSED TO CULL - Into the valley of DEFRA as badgers face extermination...
Flying in the face of all the scientific evidence, the government's chief scientific advisor David King is urging for war to be declared on Britain's badger population. Govt studies confirm independent studies that badgers don't contribute to the spread of Bovine TB - guess what - it's cows that spread it. But the plans for mass-culling are still going ahead...

7th September 2007 | Issue 602 - LAST THROW OF THE DSEi? - Killing people in conflict zones is a profitable business (seven million since 1989, with 75% of those civilians). If it wasn’t, then the Defence Systems and Equipment International (DSEi) wouldn’t be around. As one of the word’s biggest arms fairs, organisers promise that they’ll be something for everyone whether army, navy, air force or self-employed mercenary.

31th August 2007 | Issue 601- TENTS STAND OFF
- Smash EDO action camp round-up -
It’s been a hectic week in Brighton as Smash EDO and Sussex Police once again faced off over the presence of US arms manufacturer EDO MBM in the town. Local campaigners, having appealed for a national presence of peace activists for a protest camp, pitched up in Wild Park in Moulsecoomb - cheekily situated right behind EDOs main factory site on Home Farm Rd. SchNEWS had eyes on the ground...

31th August 2007 | Issue 601 - A.N.C. NO EVIL - A statue of Nelson Mandela is unveiled in Parliament Square, with politicians queuing up to stand alongside him. Yet beside this deeply ironic sham is the anti-war camp of Brian Haw - who has felt the force of the British state opposing his views. It's just as likely there'll be a statue of him in the square in future years, and another line of opportunistic politicians standing at his side to salute him...
