Though fracking industry proponents scoff at any intimation their so-called vital industry poses even scant risks to the public, a new study published in Toxicology and Applied Pharmacology just proved those critics right — fracking wastewater causes cancer.
Witnessing the umpteenth attempt demobilization and distraction by the CCOO and UGT and the institutional left, under the umbrella of an alleged Social Summit, right at the time when we suffer the most savage attacks on the rights of workers by capitalism . We are not facing a crisis, this is a big scam, before the inevitable consequences of capitalism, promoted by the greedy policies of the IMF, World Bank, European Union and the ECB and its political arm in the Spanish state: the PP, the PSOE and his cohorts. Attacks on workers over the years have been constant, differing in PP and PSOE forms.

However this can only be done if you want it to be, you hold the power in your hands.
Greetings citizens of the world, you’ve most likely heard of the recent exposure of the global security network called TrapWire. You may have also heard of the recent developments concerning the NDAA (or National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012). As time goes on it gets more evident that our situation is getting worse…. Continue reading Anonymous – We Stand United→
Statement by members of The Alternative – Alternative Red and Green in La Mancha … July 27, 2012
The crisis not only continues but deepens, it becomes worse every day. And there is no escape from capitalism, because this system is in terminal crisis. Just look how governments (all, then and now) do not know what to do, how they lie every day saying that in a few months or years we will see how the cycle changes . But all we’ve seen is sinking living conditions, and the consequences paid by the vast majority. Our lives deteriorate and we lose the social gains that cost us so many struggles. And which we paid for with our work and our taxes, because power has given us nothing. Continue reading Because there’s no other solution .. recipe for Social Revolution!→
Comunicado del núcleo de militantes de Los Alternativos – Alternativa Roja y Verde en La Mancha… 27 de Julio de 2012
La crisis no sólo continúa, sino que se agrava, se hace cada día peor. Y no hay salida desde el capitalismo, porque este sistema está en crisis terminal. Sólo hay que ver cómo sus gobiernos (todos, los de ahora y los de antes) no saben qué hacer; cómo mienten cada día (desde hace años, ellos y sus medios de desinformación) diciendo que en unos meses o años veremos cómo cambia el ciclo económico. Pero lo único que hemos visto, vemos y veremos es cómo se hunden nuestras condiciones de vida, porque las consecuencias las pagamos la inmensa mayoría. Se deterioran nuestras vidas y perdemos las conquistas sociales que tanto tiempo y tantas luchas nos costaron. Y que hemos pagado con nuestro trabajo y nuestros impuestos, porque el poder no nos ha regalado nada.
The greedy corrupt Brazilian politicians are voting to give free rein to their fascist landlord colleagues and the McDonalds backed Ranching industry to destroy the Amazon Rainforest.
The politicians appeal to nationalist sentiment.. saying we have already destroyed our forests and they have every right.
But 79% of Brazilians are AGAINST the new laws going through.

I blame McDonalds, leading the insane MEAT FRENZY of North American capitalism. A series of major reports including Greenpeace’s ‘Slaughtering The Amazon’ have shown the cheap beef industry to be behind the rapidly increasing destruction of the billion year old Amazon rainforest, which may be the starting gun for catastrophic climate change and global destruction.
The news of the killing of José Ribeiro and his wife came on the same day the Brazilian congress debated a controvers
ial set of new laws called “Forest Code” which, according to environmentalists, would be harmful to the Amazon, reducing the amount of land preserved from clear cutting.
In a video interview posted on YouTube last November, Ribeiro looks off camera and says to the interviewer: “I have received death threats by businessmen who work with loggers, who don’t want the forest standing.”
José Cláudio Ribeiro da Silva campaigned to stop logging and deforestation in the Amazon rainforest
After selling the hardwood and obliterating the ecosystems the land quickly degrades but can support low quality cattle for some years. The trade is fuelled by the billion dollar advertising budget of McDonalds Corporation, and others. With suitable chemical taste additives ever increasing quantities are being sold to already obese North Americans, duped into seeing it as a happy party treat or a virility symbol.
Blaming the fascistic landlord class of Brazil is correct, for their infinite crimes against nature and humanity.
But in the case of José and Maria, due to the driving force of the beef industry, we can trace the culprit straight back to Ronald McDonald!
