‘Fracking’ – a protest song.
http://www.mediafire.com/?vsa9f1rxdrxlbpr
‘Fracking’ is a song written in opposition to the industrial extraction of fossil-fuel shale gas by hydraulic fracturing, and aims to increase awareness of the many dangers that fracking presents. The protest song has a long tradition across all types of movements and struggles, and it is hoped that this recording can do its small bit to help build community resistance to fracking across the world.

this week saw the annual general meeting of oil giant, shell. the main international AGM took place in holland at the hague, but uk shareholders joined in by videolink at a meeting at the barbican. despite a massive security operation, the AGM was hit both outside and in by a stream of activists from 'rising tide' 'occupy oil', 'shell to sea', rossport camp, and 'tar sands uk' among others.

this short film captures the morning and some of the protests that challenged and penetrated the massive security operation at the shell AGM

Bobby Sands Remembered in Nantes Brittany
international / environment / news report Tuesday May 08, 2012 14:34 by Michael Joyce   image 2 images
The 5th May on a street off the main thoroughfares a small group of people came to mark the anniversary of a protester and a protest that in 1981 held the world's attention. Bobby Sands died that day. This street 'Rue Bobby Sands' is named in his honour. As in Nantes, just like many other cities throughout the world, the hungerstrike has left its' mark on the human conscience.
The search for justice by hungerstrike is now being used by the people of Nantes to show their opposition to the airport development at Notre Dame de La Lande (NDDL), it is an attack on their human dignity. read full story / add a comment

The idea of the worldwide Children's Revolution on May Day is for the women and children in the environmental movement to lead the marches all over the earth, and show that the World Revolution is peaceful and will save humanity from being driven to extinction by the burning of fossil fuels.
The proposal for the worldwide Children's Revolution is for kids' marches to be at the front of all the protests during the global General Strike, and for everyone else to lend their support by displaying banners reading “CAN YOU SAVE THE HUMAN RACE?” to help ensure the survival of future generations. read full story / add a comment
