Towards an advanced and mature p2p world civilisation


A map for the future 🙂

Social Network Unionism

Our current civilization is based on the dominancy of capitalist mode of production relations and other social relations that are in large portion outcomes of or strongly determined by the principal relationships of this mode, including ‘foreign’ relations between alienated human societies.

The rising people’s grassroots movement openly and clearly challenges and wants to change these relationships at a global scale.

This conscious ‘demand’ of the peoples is being unsuccessfully undermined by the mainstream media.

The existence of astonishing number of alternative visions for the aftermath of the approaching collapse is the proof of this: the gift economy, solidarity economy, participatory economy, resource based economy, commons based economy, and many more.

FOOD INC. – Shocking statistics about how a few giants control the US food market.


Shocking statistics about how a few giants control the US food market. The regulators are drawn mainly from the food industry and the huge financial clout of the market leaders ensures their business model triumphs over good sense and healthy eating.

Stop Alimentarius

Στo FOOD, Inc, ο σκηνοθέτης Robert Kenner σηκώνει το πέπλο για τη βιομηχανία τροφίμων της Αμερικής, εκθέτοντας την τεράστια εκβιομηχάνιση που έχει κρυφτεί από τον Αμερικανό καταναλωτή και δεν συμβαδίζει με τους ρυθμιστικούς οργανισμούς USDA και FDA.

Ο εφοδιασμός των τροφίμων του έθνους τώρα ελέγχεται από μια χούφτα εταιριών που θέτουν συχνά κέρδος πάνω από την υγεία των καταναλωτών, την ποιότητα ζωής του γεωργού, την ασφάλεια των εργαζομένων και του

Drugs, politics, Mexican Narco-cartels and Mormons


Drugs, politics, Mexican Narco-cartels and Mormons. What could be more exciting?

In this set of 7 short films, VICE founder Shane Smith went down to Ciudad Juárez, near the US border, to investigate this bizarre story.

We learn how the “Mormon Manson” turned his family into assassins, leading to the murder of 40 people, all in the name of blood atonement. The cartel boss “El Rikin” gets revenge against a local Mormon community leader.

The Mormons illegally arm themselves and implement counter-terrorism techniques the US military used in Iraq and Afghanistan. VICE team is stalked by the cartel after going on patrol with the police and drinking with the Mormons.

We also learn what Mitt Romney’s Mexican cousins think about his strict immigration policies. VICE talks to Mitt Romney’s Mexican relatives about the time a family member was kidnapped and held for ransom by the cartel.

We also hear how the so-called War On Drugs has failed and ideas on how to reduce the violence.


Birmingham’s Poor Feel Benefit Cuts


While we’e talking about the rich and poor, read how Birmingham’s poor are being treated by the worst UK government ever

Birmingham Against The Cuts

In a report on welfare reforms from 17 charities and non-profit organisations, the effect of cuts to housing benefit on low paid, unemployed, disabled, carers and older people and their communities has been raised by almost every organisation submitting evidence to the council.

Midland Heart, one of the regions largest social landlords, say their customers

Generally feel dismayed and negative. They are unhappy and unenthusiastic about the changes to the benefits system and afraid that they will be unable to live on reduced benefits

From April 2011 the rate for Local Housing Allowance (LHA), which replaces Housing Benefit, restricts claimants to the cheapest 30% of the private rented market.

WHICH SIDE ARE YOU ON?

I’ve felt since I was old enough to understand life that being wealthy was wrong.

Hence I’ve always identified with the Robin Hoods rather than the robbing bastards.

THREE CHEERS FOR THE BRAVE CANADIAN STUDENTS!


THREE CHEERS FOR THE BRAVE CANADIAN STUDENTS!

What fantastic news!

Everyone, quick, let’s take to the streets!

After a year of revolt which became known as the “Maple Spring”—including massive street protests that received global attention—university students across Quebec were celebrating victory on Thursday night following the announcement from newly elected Premier Pauline Marois that the government was cancelling the proposed tuition hike that led to the student uprising and nullifying the contentious Bill 78 law which was introduced to curb the powerful protests.

STUDENTS ACROSS THE WORLD WILL TAKE GREAT  COMFORT AND ENCOURAGEMENT FROM THIS AND WILL SOON BE DEMONSTRATING IN A CITY NEAR YOU FOR THEIR RIGHTS TO AN EDUCATION
