Taking over Monsanto

01.04.2004 00:05

Under the slogan "Don't hate the corporations, buy them!" a global coalition of anti-GE activists has decided on a new strategy in campaigning against genetic engineering and is preparing for a hostile take-over of Monsanto, the world's biggest producer of GE crops.

In the last years, different groups have been regular visitors at Monsanto's offices (1 | 2), test sites (1|2 |3) and during shareholder meetings (1), so that they decided to move their offices there permanently. Office space at the European headquarters in Bruxelles will also be provided to other anti-GE campaigns like Stop Bayer and Corporate Watch. The take-over is supposed to be completed soon, with a public party planned for 1 May.



Bush &amp; Cheney Resign ­ Hastert Wrestles with U.S. Presidency

01.04.2004 00:04

Washington- Last night’s surprise announcement from the Whitehouse that both George W. Bush and Richard Cheney are stepping down from office sent Washington wags into a tailspin of confusion and controversy. Both Republican leaders have been under fire recently for mishandling of the so-called War on Terrorism and their actions with regard to the 9/11 tragedy, but no one close to the Whitehouse expected such a move. "It appears as if Bush and Cheney just cut bait and bailed", said former administration spokesman Imma Fisher, "the whole town is in turmoil." It's not certain if the present hearings on 9/11 have any bearing on the unexpected turn of events or that rumors of the U.S. Treasury being found empty in the early hours of the morning is somehow related to the sudden departure.



Corsica becomes EU Deportation Centre

01.04.2004 00:03

Last weekend in Bruxelles, the EU foreign ministered pushed repression against migrants and other foreigners further in their effort to build Fort Europe.

In an effort to control migrants, it was decided to use the island Corsica in the Mediterranian Sea as a central deportation centre by 2005. As an intended side effect, this will also help to control protesters who repeatedly do actions at deportation centres and other facilities all over Europe (like for example at the new deportation centre at the airport Schiphol). A German hardliner on the issues, Beckstein, was quoted as commenting on the effect that this will have on organisations like no border: "Now they'll will have to borrow boats from Greenpeace." Plans are also underway, to use the island Sardinia, South of Corsica, as an immigration centre for all refuges. The Australian minister xx was flown in to report from experiences with Woomera and other centres. Both projects will be subsidies by the EU as creation of work opportunities on the islands.



Indymedia.org team in merger talks with CBS/Viacom

01.04.2004 00:02

Indymedia George Soros, CEO of Indymedia.org ltd has begun merger talks with the
CBS/Viacom News Network to help bring together the Vibrant Staff of the Independant News Network with the resources and Global Consumer Reach of the CBS news network.

This follows a meeting of the IMC Board of Directors and key Indymedia
shareholders where it was decided that Indymedia needed to branch out from its traditional Liberal readership demographic to encompass more mainstream news interests and readerships.

Shayne Brown, president of the Asia Pacific Indymedia Consortium said "It's fine we have our loyal readership we do. We wouldn't of gotten where we are without them. But our growth has been marred by our inability to target advertising at the so called 'Soccer Mom' demographic"

A spokesperson for CBS/Viacom said "This represents an exciting stage for the CBS/Viacom Network. The Indymedia branding represents fantastic marketing oportunities for our clients to market product at the 'alternative' and 'hip hop' youth market that the Indymedia Network represents.



... passionate tellings of truth

01.04.2004 00:01

It has been brought to our attention that some of the "facts" in the above stories may not represent the exact truth in all particular details. However, we have decided to leave them here for a little longer to see whether we can find out the truth. We will archive them in keeping with our commitments to Open Publishing (plus, if any of these things ever happen, we'll be ready).

Or as John Cleese, Minister of Silly walks put it: "A really good idea is always traceable back quite a long way, often to a not very good idea which sparked off another idea that was only slightly better, which somebody else misunderstood in such a way that they then said something which was really rather interesting."

the war

saigon, 31.03.2004 19:41

Quella di mercoledì non è stata una giornata di sangue come le altre, come quasi tutte quelle si sono sussegute da quando Bush ha deciso (primo maggio 2003), ancora una volta “unilateralmente”, che la guerra era finita e la missione era stata “compiuta”. Quanto è accaduto a Falluja segna una svolta nei fatti iracheni. Come tutto il mondo ha potuto vedere, grazie alla presenza di una telecamera che dimostra forse le premeditazione dell’assalto, quattro civili sicuramente americani, come ha confermato con molte ore di ritardo il Dipartimento di Stato, sono state uccisi, massacrati, bruciati, fatti a pezzi, esibiti come trofei di guerra e messi in mostra su un ponte.
