There is No Food Crisis ? If Only We Stopped Burning it as ?Green? Biofuel Mon Aug 08, 2022 19:20 | David Craig
3.5M tonnes of EU palm oil go to make biodiesel ? the same as the amount of sunflower oil exported by Ukraine and Russia combined. There's only a food crisis because we burn food rather than use it to feed people.

Monday February 23, 2015 23:32 by pfc - Progressive Film Club
On Saturday 28 February the Progressive Film Club presents two film showings where admission is Free! They are in The New Theatre, 43 East Essex street, (in Temple Bar) Dublin 2
They are London is Burning at 2:30pm and The Apples of Golan at 3:30pm.
The Progressive Film Club are a voluntary organisation dedicated to showing progressive films from all over the world. Struggles for people’s rights, for the rights of workers, of immigrants, of women, for national liberation and for social justice are some of the themes of the outstanding films we have selected. Showings—usually one all-day show per month—are at the New Theatre in East Essex Street.
London is Burning - 2:30pm
The financial crisis following the banking collapse in
2008, has been a purely man-made phenomenon, an
unsurprising result of the suicidal economics of shortterm,
casino economics of the international financial
sector, and its capital, the City of London. The link
between production and ‘wealth creation’ has been
shattered by the financialisation of international capital,
hence creating a market detached from economic
realities. This has led to the deepest financial crisis in
our lifetime, with hundreds of millions all over the
world suffering, and having to pay the cost of the
reckless financial market. Decades of individualism
have made Britain one of the most unequal countries
in the developed world. In this context, the riots and
ensuing ransacking of shops and other premises are
examined by the film maker.
The Apples of the Golan 3.30 pm.
APPLES OF THE GOLAN tells the epic story of Majdal
Shams, one of five remaining Arab villages in the
Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. Before the occupation
there were 139 such villages, which have now
mostly been destroyed. Cut off from their homeland
since the events of the Six Day War, the villagers
fight to maintain their national identity amid political
uncertainty, border disputes and the Syrian Civil War.
They are all connected to, and owe their existence to,
the apples which grow all around the village. In many
ways, as their resistance to occupation is generally
peaceful, the apples are their bombs.
Irish film-makers Keith Walsh and Jill Beardsworth
spent five years among the people of the village and
have woven together, from the interlocking lives of
the apple growers, salsa dancers, traitors, and freedom
fighters that make up this unique community, a
film that is a complex portrait of a place, a people,
and the apple trees that root them to land.
