Permanent Destruction of Louisiana Marshland (tags)

The Louisiana marshland is being permanently destroyed by the multi-billion dollar profiting oil companies in the Gulf of Mexico Oil Disaster. The biggest user of oil, the US military, should be abolished as it simply exists to maximize profits of the capitalist class. The second biggest user is the private passenger auto which must be replaced with massive free public transportation. The oil companies actually claimed they had this disaster under control. The marshlands need an 80 mile levy built TODAY to save the coastal areas. British Petroleum makes multi-billion dollars a year in profit and must pay for the levies, cleanup, lost wages, lost businesses and everything else 100% TODAY. Brasschecktv has the story.

The BP oil spill and American capitalism (tags)

All who stand for progress and human advancement must seize this moment. In every conversation, every letter to the editor, every email, every blog post and every twit we must work to put the transformation to a different society on the table. Only an economy based on fairness and sharing can save us from the disease of capitalism that is ravaging this earth. Now is a time to scream this from every corner of the globe. In our groups and associations and as individuals we can begin this now. We may not stop until we have a new world!"

CA Governor Candidate Alexander, SPUSA: BP Oil Spill a Crime not a Disaster (tags)

The explosion on BP’s Deepwater Horizon rig that released millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico has been called a “Disaster” by many. It isn’t a disaster. It is a crime.

Gulf oil spill threatens economic, environmental catastrophe (tags)

"According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, the Deepwater Horizon oil rig lacked a device called an acoustic switch that could have shut off the flow of oil. The remote controlled device sends acoustic impulses through the water that can trigger an underwater valve to shut down the well. All offshore rigs have one main switch to shut off the flow of oil by closing a valve located on the ocean floor. There is also supposed to be a backup, a so-called “dead man,” that will shut down the well in the event of a catastrophe on the rig. Apparently neither of these devices worked on the Deepwater Horizon rig. The crewmembers who would have been closest to the shutoff switch are among those missing and presumed dead. With an acoustic trigger a crew can shut down a well even if the rig is damaged or evacuated. However, BP, which reported profits of $5.598 billion for the first quarter of 2010, vigorously resisted changes to US regulations that would have required acoustic triggers on deep sea rigs, citing effectiveness and costs, about $500,000 per unit. Compliant US regulators agreed, saying other backup plans were sufficient. They called the acoustic triggers unreliable and prone to causing unnecessary shutdowns."

Recipes For Disaster, an anarchist cookbook (tags)

For ten long years, our operatives have honed their skills, testing their wits and mettle against the global capitalist empire, the most formidable adversary in the history of life on earth. We have learned how to redecorate the walls of cities occupied by armies of riot police, to transform random groups of damaged, isolated individuals into loving communities capable of supporting one another through the most severe bouts of repression and depression, to shut down corporate summits and franchises armed with little more than plastic piping or eyedroppers of glue. Now, the notorious CrimethInc. ex-Workers’ Collective has compiled many of the techniques that made these feats possible into a 624-page manual entitled Recipes for Disaster.

Through the Roof: A Play about New Orleans, California, and "Natural" Disaster (tags)

Produced by the Central Library (Literature and Fiction Dept.) and the College of Humanities, California State University, Northridge. The play reading is part of a California Stories project entitled: “Natural Disaster: California, New Orleans, the World” (www.calhum.org), and the project is supported, in part, by a grant from the California Council for the Humanities.

Failed Logic and Rhetoric in the USA (tags)

Hillary Clinton and the neo-cons have much in common, their policies in relation to a continued presence in Iraq (oil theft) are similar as are their inept, amateurish and transparent attempts at rhetoric. Hillary’s latest offering was a statement to the effect that the Bush regime has dug a “deep hole” in Iraq that would take some time for “us” to emerge from! Notice the tactic of blame laying [political capital] while at the same time ensuring continued presence in Iraq on the basis that “we” would be rectifying all of Bush’s mistakes – very good Hillary, continued neo-colonial occupation and oil appropriation has nothing to do with it! Are Americans so stupid that they no longer recognise horseshit when they see or smell it?
