    Join our non-violent civil disobedience at a central London government location. If you are interested in being briefed on this action please read this briefing doc then attend an online or face-to-face briefing: https://bit.ly/2toKhji Please sign up here ---> https://goo.gl/forms/vaN4CDNyDt7mJwXq2 The science is done. We are in a climate and ecological emergency. We're on course to send our children to an early death likely to involve mental breakdown, starvation and war. There are no words to describe the horrors we risk if we do not make governments act immediately. Every parent, every adult, everyone has a responsibility and duty to take action. That now means breaking of the law. On Saturday 9th March Extinction Rebellion is calling for hundreds of people – whatever your age, beliefs, or background – to come and pour (artificial) blood on the ground outside a key government location. We'll make the gravity of the crisis viscerally clear and show that we're prepared for sacrifice: prepared to be arrested. This is now what's required. We also wish to apologise to the next generation for our complicity in this the greatest of all crimes - to leave a legacy of hell. A future defined by the climate and ecological breakdown. We welcome all, especially those with the greatest stake in the future: young people. Sacrifice and Redemption. Whatever your beliefs – spiritual or secular – we can unite behind this cause. We can hesitate no longer. We must rebel for life. All participants of all ages will be fully briefed on the symbolic meaning of this act of civil disobedience before they engage in it. Everyone who decides to take part will make that decision on the basis of this briefing. Here is a briefing doc for the action - please have a read through this if you are still interested in taking part. There is also a contact email in the doc if you have any questions: https://bit.ly/2toKhji There are going to be several face-to-face briefing sessions and an online briefing session. Details below: London face-to-face briefing (25th Feb): https://www.facebook.com/events/153148995569551/ Bristol face-to-face briefing (20th Feb): https://www.facebook.com/events/343952286211669/ More briefings will be planned for other regions, details to follow. If you'd like to help out with planning and are based near London, please join us for one of these meetings: 20th Feb: https://www.facebook.com/events/376227563158393/ 27th Feb: https://www.facebook.com/events/388864605008701/ 6th March: https://www.facebook.com/events/597642333974587/ Thank you.

  5. Do you remember the Tienditas bridge "blockade" story that several mainstream media (MSM) outlets - such as BBC, NBC News, NPR, ABC and CNN among others - reported on? It had apparently been blocked by the evil Maduro regime in an effort to stop humanitarian aid from reaching Venezuela, or so we were told anyway. Figures from the Trump administration and other neocons first spread the "blockade" story and it was picked up by and reported on by MSM from around the world without any basic fact-checking or investigation. And would ya know, it was fake news. The bridge has never been used because it hasn't been opened since its construction. The Tienditas Bridge “blockade” – Justin Emery – Medium MEDIUM.COM Or how to turn an unopened bridge into an international news story to build support for your coup These news organisations are supposed to be gate-keepers against fake news, not amplifiers of fake news and misleading propaganda. This fake news story about the crisis in Venezuela clearly shows the inability, and lack of independence, our MSM has when faced with propaganda and cheap PR stunts from the US government. They all uniformly eat it up without any critical thinking on their own part, it is shameful and it is at best lazy journalism. Here are other things the MSM might not be telling you about when it comes to Venezuela: Venezuela is actually already getting aid from the UN, Red Cross and other countries. Venezuela only refuses aid from countries imposing sanctions on them. The US and Trump administration has offered Venezuela $20 million in aid, but the sanctions cost Venezuela $30 million every single day. Elliott Abrams, the Trump administrations special envoy on Venezuela, has used "aid" in the past to smuggle weapons to death squads and rebels/terrorists. US "aid" has already arrived in Venezuela: like these assault weapons smuggled in from Miami to arm the US-funded right-wing opposition now led by Guaido. It is understandable why Venezuela is hesitant to receive "aid" from the US and its allies when you consider US history on this. During the 1980s, CIA arranged to deliver military equipment to Contra rebels in Nicaragua on planes designated for "humanitarian aid." And as mentioned before, it was Trump's special envoy to Venezuela, Elliott Abrams, who was involved in ordering planes to shuttle weapons to Contras in Central America.

    Jag minns inte hur många gånger jag har demonstrerat med min mamma. Däremot minns jag att jag mer än en gång gjorde tydligt hur PINSAMT jag tyckte att det var (krigsdansade mig…

    Runtom i Europa och övriga världen genomförs nu stora klimatprotester av skolungdomar som är inspirerade av Greta Thunbergs skolstrejk för klimatet, men inte i Sverige, här låter vi Greta helt ensam sköta protesterna åt oss.


    Greta Thunberg inspirerar som bekant vuxna och barn från hela världen och alla samhällsklasser att gå man ur huse för att höja sina röster. Det rapporteras om rekordstora demonstrationer, i land efter land. Utom i Sverige. I Sverige – som höll på att brinna upp i somras – uteblir massprotesterna. Istället har vi Greta (med ett uppbåd av journalister som rapporterar om Greta). Och varje fredag låter vi en 16-åring – praktiskt taget ensam – sköta protesterna åt oss. I bästa fall beror det på individualismens förbannelse. I värsta fall har vi misslyckats med att lära våra barn att deras röster räknas. Jag undrar om svenskarna har tappat tron på kollektivets makt.

    Att vi inte skäms!

  8. Bernie Sanders announces he is running for US president!!

    1. Sanjo


      I wish him the best of luck!

    2. Simon


      Solidarity to Bernie, and his team and supporters, from Sweden as well!

  9. Today Bernie Sanders announced that he is running for US president in 2020! Bernie Sanders made the announcement on Vermont Public Radio: Sanders also said he is running to oppose Donald Trump and to enact universal health care coverage, a $15 minimum wage and reducing student debt — all policies that he championed in 2016. Shortly afterwards this campaign video was posted online: Go, Bernie, Go! 😊
  10. Let's be real here, sanctions kill children, women, innocent people. Their purpose is to make the civilian population struggle immensely and its a form of warfare. Be sure to also check out the other Intercepted episodes on Venezuela, they are great: Donald Trump and the Yankee Plot to Overthrow the Venezuelan Government Trump Headlines a Benefit Concert for Imperialism
  11. This op-ed on Venezuela by Robert Fisk is worth reading: We’ve seen the West's approach to Venezuela before – in Syria, Egypt, Afghanistan, need I go on? Here are some excerpts: And don't forget about our cosy relationship with Saudi Arabia: The West is truly the best when it comes to double standards!
  12. What different nations want to do with their space programs:

    China: build massive solar farms.

    USA: create a military space force.

  13. Abandoning fossil fuel investments is a smart thing to do unless you want to risk losing money on stranded assets as the fossil fuel divestment movement gains more support around the world and new, and tougher, government regulations, like carbon pricing, that limit the use of fossil fuels are introduced.

  15. Now, this is infuriating! An 11 year old black boy refused to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance in school (which is perfectly fine and legal). But when he did, his teacher told him to leave America and to go back to Africa. The teacher then had him arrested for being disobedient. Boy, 11, arrested after refusing to recite 'racist' Pledge of Allegiance WWW.YAHOO.COM "I want the charges dropped and I want the school to be held accountable," Dhakira Talbot said of her son's arrest at the Florida school. The teacher was a substitute teacher and claimed to police that the child made a threat. Now the school says "We are looking into this matter, but this individual will no longer be allowed to substitute at any of our schools." Despite this, the kid was suspended by the school for three days.

  16. Oh man oh man! Bernie Sanders has apparently recorded a new campaign video in which he says he is running for president in 2020, Politico reports. Go get em, Bernie!

  22. Earlier
  23. Cuba has accused the US of engaging in a secret military build-up to prepare for a military intervention against Venezuela, which Reuters reports: Cuba says U.S. moving special forces, preparing Venezuelan intervention It's just downright shameful to use international aid as a cover for military intervention.
  24. Alfred de Zayas, a former U.N. independent expert, says the US is violating international law by attempting a coup in Venezuela and that "the mainstream media has been complicit in this attempted coup" that, according to him, resembles the run-up to the Iraq invasion of 2003. Here is a video where Aaron Bastani explains that Venezuela's economy is in free fall because of falling oil prices and US sanctions, not socialism. Meanwhile, the US has rejected international peace talks with Maduro and Venezuela, which AFP reports: US revokes Venezuela visas, rejects dialogue with Maduro It seems the US is determined to "solve" this crisis in a more direct and violent approach, that's especially telling considering that they've appointed the war criminal Elliott Abrams as special envoy for Venezuela.

  27. Ja äntligen ett nytt och riktigt MILJÖPARTI i Sverige! Carl Schlyter som nyligen hoppade av Miljöpartiet startar nu ett nytt parti, Partiet Vändpunkt, som på allvar vill bemöta klimatkrisen med en större ekonomisk jämlikhet och en miljö- och klimatpolitik som faktiskt gör skillnad. Detta är en direkt reaktion på Miljöpartiets stora högersväng mot en nyliberal katastrofpolitik.


    DN DEBATT 14/2. I dag lanserar vi Partiet vändpunkt (PV) som ska förena goda ambitioner med en grundläggande förståelse, skriver Carl Schlyter, med flera.

    Lycka till, vi behöver ett miljöparti som inte fastnar i nyliberalismens gyttja!

    1. Simon


      Det är kul och spännande att se hur snabbt Partiet Vändpunkt växer. Nu har det nya partiet över 600 medlemmar, meddelar de på Twitter.
