    The Ecological Crisis and Finance Activism as the Achilles Heel
    0

    The planet is in a state of crisis. We are shredding the interlocking web of life on which we depend. This post is dedicated to examining finance activism as the strategic lever to transform the landscape of an unaccountable, unsustainable and fundamentally perilous global system that is destroying lives and land. In fighting such a system, we need targets that help us connect local struggles and global struggles. With their tendrils exacting a stranglehold on people and the planet, Citigroup is a posterchild for an economic system based on bad behavior and based on principals of short-term profits over the long-term health of communities and ecosystems.

    This news story has potential to turn the entire, incessant, deceitful, corporate-pushed, liability-dodging, blame-nature, blame-the-victims "Smoking" crusade inside out and upside down. Stay tuned.

    the x-games are in philly at the same tiem as the aca conference. on the west side of city hall on saturday the 11th, there will be the 'street skateboarding finals'.


    chomsky has some good commentary on the effects of professional spectator sports on the democratic involvement of the populace. he essentially reduces the whole concept to the familar 'bread-and-circuses' distraction.


    of course the counter-conferernce is a great idea, but what of direct action? the issue of 'relatedness' may emerge is the x games were the target, but the action would be sure to receive mainstream coverage and the issue really is about

    the extent to which our society pushes the 'success in sports' ideal at the expense of useful skills. building more jails is the sinister effect but ... wherein lies the cause.


    i'm just sayin' ...

    Why would anyone think to honor the memory of Rizzo..whose record as police commissoner and mayor is an embarassment to Philadelphia? Racism, police brutality, destruction of evidence, hostility to journalists, frame-ups of the innocent, etc. Call in to radio show Monday July 16.

    Philadelphia graciously (ignorantly?)creates an ideal place for Environmentalists to conduct Protest Demonstrations.

    Washington tolerates atrocities against civilians by neo-Nazi AUC forces, long-known by the CIA as drug traffikers linked to the Colombian Army. In a replay of history, U.S. warmongers push for expansion of Plan Colombia, the biggest U.S. backed, dirty covert military operation since Vietnam.
