”There are always oil spills in the Amazon. Because the criminal predator oil companies care nothing for the environment, the health of the people or even the genocide of whole indigenous nations. this has been going on for 50 years, the biggest crimes being the 1000’s of spills and abandoned chemical lakes created over 30 years by Texaco (now Chevron) which even today uses it’s massive wealth to defend its impunity. Today while science proves that 60% of fossil fuels will have to stay in the ground to save us from catastrophic climate change, the race to extract continues worse than ever, with the connivance of ourselves, the 1st world fossil fuel junkies!

Dead fish from an oil spill in the Peruvian Amazon are mixed with oil-covered twigs gathered by local residents. Fish are vital to the villagers’ diet and income. Reporters discovered there had been another smaller oil spill only 4 days before which the company claims was a ”normal maintenance procedure”

CUNINICO, Peru – On the last day of June, Roger Mangía Vega watched an oil slick and a mass of dead fish float past this tiny Kukama Indian community and into the Marañón River, a major tributary of the Amazon.

Community leaders called the emergency number for Petroperu, the state-run operator of the 845-kilometer pipeline that pumps crude oil from the Amazon over the Andes Mountains to a port on Peru’s northern coast Continue reading

from Anarchist Black Cross (Cruz Negra Anarquista) with thanks

Last 11th of July registered the houses and arrested three people who are in the NO TAV fight in Italy. Two were arrested in Milan and another one in Lecce.

The TAV is an European project which consist on the creation of a high speed line from Lisbon to Kiev. It is in 1995 when the people from Val di Susa (Italy) start an important fight in opposition to its construction. In 2008, the fight is radicalised due to the militarization of the valley and the extension of the movement among other cities in Italy. In the 9th of December 2013, Chiara, Claudio and Niccollò are imprisioned in Turin and Mattia in Milan, accusing them of participating in an action against the construction of the TAV in the 13th May 2013 night. These four people are arrested under high security as they are considered terrorist.

In  summer 2013 members of several ABC groups discussed the necessity of introducing an International Day for Anarchist Prisoners. Given there are already established dates for Political Prisoners Rights Day or Prison Justice Day, we found it important to emphasise the stories of our comrades as well. Many imprisoned anarchists will never be acknowledged as ‘political prisoners’ by formal human-rights organisations, because their sense of social justice is strictly limited to the capitalist laws which are designed to defend the State and prevent any real social change.

At the same time, even within our individual communities, we know so little about the repression that exists in other countries, to say nothing of the names and cases involving many of our incarcerated comrades.

This is why we have decided to introduce an annual Week for Anarchist Prisoners on August 23-30.

” In 2012 the government revived Spanish oil company Repsol’s permit from 2001 to explore for oil in the Canary Islands, which had been cancelled in 2004 by the supreme court after legal challenges…destroy repsol whaleThe move prompted outrage from environmentalists and locals and the Canariees government who had previously fought the plans. Late last month, an blatantly fudged ”environmental review” handed Repsol the green light from Madrid to proceed with its exploration off Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, both popular holiday destinations.  (continued below)… Continue reading

natural pool6A Natural Swimming Pool is one that has clear water without using chemicals. These pools rely entirely on the plants and animals to condition the water.

Una piscina natural es una piscina que tiene agua clara sin necesidad de utilizar productos químicos. Estas piscinas se basan enteramente en las plantas y los animales para acondicionar el agua.

This is so effective that this pool has been tested and shown to be of drinking water quality. Also, through the continual natural “cleaning process” the pool water never needs changing, saving water.

Esto es tan eficaz que  ha sido probado y demostrado que la calidad del agua de la piscina es potable. También, a través del proceso de limpieza continuo natural, el agua de la piscina nunca necesita ser cambiado, ahorriendo mucha agua.

Power’s ability to resist change: this is the story of our times. Morally bankrupt, discredited, widely loathed? No problem: whether it’s neoliberal economics, tax avoidance, coal burning, farm subsidies or the House of Lords, somehow the crooked system creeps along.

53 indigenous activists on trial for police-protester massacre in Peru

In the summer of 2009, on a highway in Peru known as Devil’s Curve: everything went wrong. For months, indigenous groups had protested new laws by then President Alan Garcia opening up the Amazon to deregulated logging, fossil fuels, and other extractive industries as a part of free trade agreements with the U.S. But the protests came to a bloody head on June 5th when police clashed with activists, leaving at least 32 dead and 200 injured.

This is a great new beginning. International strikes are a brilliant way to stop outsourcing industry to places with even worse slave labour conditions. With world strikes we can stop the crazy concentration of wealth, and stop the abuse of nationalism to manipulate us against each other.

Workers braved the dismal weather on the morning of May 15th to demand higher wages and the right to unionize at McDonald’s and other fast-food restaurants. (Amien Essif)

It’s 6 a.m. in Chicago, and the bitingly cold, drizzly weather seems oblivious to the fact that it’s May 15th. And yet, a crowd of more than 100 people wearing red ponchos has formed outside of a McDonald’s restaurant downtown, where they’re dancing to mariachi music. fast food stike 5

There’s a simple answer to climate change that’s been available all along. Really? You don’t believe me?

The answer is to switch to a proven, cheaper, safer, CO2-free fuel that is also non toxic when used and would have saved, according to the WHO, seven million air pollution deaths last year.

All internal combustion motors can be converted easily to run on NH3 fuel, which with new tech can be made anywhere from solar energy, wind and water.

Crazy or what?

Monday’s 4.4 quake was a timely warning. It’s typical that the USA permits fracking waste injection wells, known to trigger earthquakes, all over an area of dangerous fault lines. Anything goes, as always in the sacred cause of making a fast buck. Of course prospecting and extracting new fossil fuel resources is ecocidal and ultimately suicidal for the human race, since we need to leave most of the already discovered fossil fuels in the ground, just to avoid a total catastrophe. Instead billions of public cash in tax breaks are handed out to these same mega criminals. Now hopefully fracking will be banned, at least in the city of LA.
