These guys sound a lot like us but less decriptive and more vague.  They seem not to have heard of us and think they are the first to attempt this.  That's ok.  I am going to look more into it and see if the local IOPS members want to merge with them somehow.  Stay tuned for my blog on concrete ways for IOPS to move forward in a fair and democratic way.   http://leftroots.net/towards-strategy/ http://leftroots.net/

That province has been in the vanguard of the struggle against mega mining since 2003, when Esquel, located in one of the most beautiful spots of the Andes, became the first Argentinean city in passing a resolution rejecting new mining…

Does the ICC exist? Well I suppose it depends on what you mean by ICC and exist. ICC member Paul Street was nice enough to inform me something along the lines of, "you know, the ICC is not real".  So I asked Noam Chomsky and he granted me. "I can’t really say much.  I have been only peripherally related, and have no position or power within the organization.  I think you should direct your – very serious and important – concerns to Mike Albert, at sysop@zmag.org."…

'Some of this stuff does indeed need saying, but Russell Brand is not the man to say it.' Of course. We need the "right" people to say things. Those with the "right" credentials, the "right" background, the "right" pedigree. Of course, if we don't get the "right" person to write about what is the right  course action, we just write them off as right hypocrites or self-righteous twats. Right? Of course, Naomi  Klein has just written a book. It is a book that just might change everything.…

a rather simple blog. just a question. if you were to describe IOPS casually to someone not familiar, how would you put it? mostly thinking of that as a face-to-face encounter, but that may not be how everyone exists, and since this is textual it’s not anyways, but i’d like that to be the thought. what’s your basic summary? or maybe it depends on who you are talking to on how that extends or applies. or don't answer, but i've always struggled with this. plus Moving Forward…

We face a challenge, a series of challenges, challenges that, although comparable to others in history, are unprecedented in their sheer scale. Collectively, we are increasingly becoming aware that our economic system, in its current kleptocratic and destructive form, is unsustainable.   We have seen the globalised financial sector crash the economy, socialising the costs, privatising the profits and under the false premise of ‘too big to fail’ (in other words, untouchable due to…
