Amazon and Boss Bezos Developing New Ways to Control and Abuse Workers
By Don Gross On Feb. 1, Amazon reported its highest ever quarterly profit, bringing in $1.9 billion in profit in the fourth quarter of 2017. The news came a day after it was reported that Amazon had patented wristbands that would track warehouse workers’ movements while they were on the job.
The stunning contrast between these two stories reinforces the fact that Amazon’s massive profits are created by the work of mostly low-paid warehouse workers and delivery drivers who work under slave-like conditions.
Not just France but all Europe should ban US Frack Gas.. The US frackers are EXEMPT from clean water laws and get all kinds of hidden subsidies with all opposition steamrollered, while permanently poisoning acuifers, releasing mega amounts of methane which isn’t even measured, destroying people’s health causing cancers and deformities with total impunity, killing animals, insects, fish, birds, etc and abandoning wells right, left and center to frack new ones, leaving toxic ponds….. etc etc.Why should we accept their ecocidal Frack Gas?? We have far too much already, there’s a glut of gas, and it’s just adding to Climate Chaos.. Is it just to give the US more profits and help them screw the Russians?

by Jay Syrmopoulos After a global call to arms, the Anonymous campaign against the global banking industry, OpIcarus has gained major momentum… eight more financial institutions have been taken down after the initial attack on the Central Bank of Greece – followed by a similar DDoS attack on the Central Bank of Cyprus.According to a video released in conjunction with OpIcarus, the attack on Bank of Greece marked the beginning of a “30-day campaign against central bank sites across the world.” This massive push, according to the video, aims to “strike at the heart of [the] empire by once again throw[ing] a wrench into the machine.”
Victory to the Palestinian struggle! Stop arming Israel! #StopElbit
For nearly a month, Israel has bombarded Gaza from land, sea and air. More than 1800 Palestinians have lost their lives and war crimes have been committed. To our collective shame, the UK government has not only failed to take action to pressure Israel to stop its massacre, but has refused to take steps to end the material support it provides to Israel’s brutal regime of apartheid and colonialism. When governments support crimes against humanity, grassroots movements must take direct action.
Cops in Hamburg have established city-wide stop and search after the Rote Flora demonstration on the 21st of December, see SchNEWS Red Flower Power.
