4th July 2008 | Issue 638- EMPIRE OF THE VANITIES - It's G8 Summit circus time again, this time meeting in Japan. For ten years the G8 - and the US-led Neo-Con empire - has been a big target for protests and anti-capitalist politics. But is the G8 really the unstoppable threat it appeared to be during the height of the summit-hopping years? The power blocks are shifting...

27th June 2008 | Issue 637- HOUNDED - Fox hunting has been banned in Britain - hasn't it?

28th March 2008 | Issue 626 - VERGE ON THE ROAD - The first leg of the Smash EDO tour over the last week has taken in Oxford, Bath, Hereford and finished up at Bristol’s Kebele social centre. According to movie director Steve Bishop, “The whole things has been massively energised by Sussex Police’s cack-handed attempt at censorship – so cobblers / bollocks to them basically. Venue organisers have been surprised at the turn outs – obviously huge credit has to go to everyone who organised a screening at short notice.”

As Terminal Five At Heathrow Opens
click for bigger image

28th March 2008 | Issue 626 - TERMINAL DISASTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT - Yesterday was the start of another inglorious chapter in the story of air travel as Heathrow Terminal 5 (T5) officially opened. After the whopping £4.3 billion spent on essentially a better-lit new cattle shed, it should have been a red letter day for British Airways. But the only red on show was that of hundreds of ‘Flashmob’ protesters who – having previously milling around the check-in areas looking innocuous - simultaneously ripped off their over-garments to reveal matching red t-shirts emblazoned with the simple message, “STOP AIRPORT EXPANSION”.

In the days that followed, across the country venues due to show the film on the forthcoming tour have received visits from the police and licensing authorities keen to stop screenings.

14th March 2008 | Issue 624 - NO TIME FOR LOSERS - As Karaoke Four are acquitted - Another mighty cock up this week for Sussex Police - as yet again the crown prosecution (CPS) has been forced to drop a Smash EDO court case. This time it’s the ‘Karaoke Four’ – who famously were arrested after a window-rattling rendition of ‘We Are The Champions’ during the Smash EDO ‘Bad Karaoke’ demo in October 2007

Toffs ignore the Fox Hunting Ban

7th March 2008 | Issue 623 - BUNCH OF HUNTS - “It’s pretty much business as usual hunt sabbing in the fields of rural England, three years after the hunting ban came into force - if you can call it a ban; week in week out we see hunts chasing and killing foxes in direct violation of the ban.” - H.S.A. Press Officer

Svalbard global seed vault

29th Feb 2008 | Issue 622 - NO STRAIN NO GAIN - "Seeds are the very beginning of the food chain. He, who controls the seeds, controls the food supply and thus controls the people." - Dominique Guillet, Kokopelli.

Last week, in France, the independent seed-saving and selling Association Kokopelli were fined €35,000 - Their crime was selling traditional and rare seed varieties which weren’t on the official EU-approved list – and therefore illegal to sell.

The Good Life go to the local seed swaps
click for bigger image

Another way of getting around seed restriction laws are seed swaps – which in recent years have sprouted up and down the country. People freely share seeds for another year’s growing – a co-operative way of maintaining genetic diversity, as well as exchanging knowledge. Most are around February/early March - see

22nd Feb 2008 | Issue 621 - THE BEST AID PLANS - Bush has finished his tour of Africa - where 'aid' was on offer to those countries ready to tow the line. But even still - most of the aid money is in the form of contracts to US corporations for infrastructure programmes and hardly a penny will get to the people on the ground.
