Blair Movie

New movie coming out soon about Tony Blair and how he has stolen our rights as people...i have seen trailers and meet researchers...could be interesting even if the editing in the trailer is a bit clunky.

TAKING LIBERTIES is a shocking but hilarious polemic documentary that charts the destruction of all your Basic Liberties under 10 Years of New Labour. Released to coincide with Tony Blair's departure, the film and the book follow the stories of normal people who's lives have been turned upside down by injustice - from being arrested for holding a placard outside parliament to being tortured in Guantanamo Bay.

Starbucks answers activists via YouTube

Starbucks answers activists on YouTube
VIDEO sharing sites like YouTube look set to become a new front in the battles between big corporations and social activists.
As a medium, video can be highly convincing and effective, but high costs have historically limited its use by activists and companies. However, new online video editing and posting services have dramatically altered the economics, putting online video in reach of anyone with a video camera.At the same time, video sharing and social media networks are providing activists with access to a potentially vast audience that they previously could only have reached through mainstream television coverage.

An A-Z of Bushcraft

Women in the 18 - 34 age group account for 18% of all online Britons.

Young women dominate UK net scene
Young women are now the most dominant group online in the UK, according to new research from net measurement firm Nielsen/NetRatings.

They also spend the most time online - accounting for 27% more of the total UK computer time than their male counterparts.
Of UK males active online, the 50+ age group is the most prevalent.

The breakthrough of these groups will come as a surprise to many who regard the internet as being largely dominated by young men.The fact that new groups are emerging is the best illustration of how mainstream the net has now become, he said.
Women in the 18- 34 category are visiting a variety of sites including those dedicated to fashion, family and lifestyle issues.

EcoVillage Pioneers (Movie Trailer)

For a decade Helen and her young son went in search of a sustainable way of life. Along the way she recorded the UK's most high profile campaigners on low impact living. She charted how Tony Wrench and his partner challenged and radically changed a council's policy on rural housing. Her journey took her to Crystal Waters Permaculture village in Australia, Sunseed Desert Technology centre in Spain, Findhorn spiritual community in Scotland, and the low impact settlement, Tinkers Bubble in Somerset England. Her trip also includes the world renowned Centre of Alternative Technology in mid Wales. The main strand of the film follows the story of Britains first Ecovillage to be developed in England and Wales. Eco Village Pioneers will be available in July 2007 but screenings wil be held around the UK. Contact eco@undercurrents.org if you can put on a showing.
