With The NSA, The GCHQ, The FRA Planting Crypto Backdoors In Infrastructure, They Are Now The Enemy Of All Mankind

6 September 2013 — Falkvinge on Infopolicy

The security services of the US, UK, and Sweden have been actively working to plant backdoors into most commercial cryptography software. While intended to use for wiretapping business secrets, medical journals and bank transactions, those backdoors are also there for any other adversary. This is effectively a declaration of war from the security services against all of humanity.

Ikea’s Race to the Bottom BY John Logan

19 June 2013 — In These Times

Turkish workers say Ikea takes advantage of the authoritarian government’s anti-union policies.

Ikea’s labor practices in Turkey are more like those in Saudi Arabia—a country that represses independent unions—than those of Sweden, where companies generally have cooperative relationships with their unions.

With total sales of $36 billion in 2012, Ikea is the world’s largest furniture retailer, and one of the world’s most recognizable retail brands. Worldwide, Ikea operates in approximately 40 countries and has more than 100,000 employees.

Video: Julian Assange Pt.3: On Meeting With Google, Responds to Anti-WikiLeaks Attacks From New Film to Finances

29 may 2013 – Democracy Now!

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange took refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy last year to avoid extradition to Sweden, where he is wanted for questioning over sex assault and rape allegations. He fears that Sweden will agree to extradite him to the United States. On Tuesday, Ecuador’s foreign minister accused the British government of trampling on Assange’s rights by refusing to allow him to travel to Ecuador, which granted him political asylum almost a year ago. Joining us from the embassy, Assange addresses what he calls “attacks on all fronts against WikiLeaks,” from a monetary embargo involving some of the world’s largest financial firms to a new Hollywood documentary on WikiLeaks, “We Steal Secrets.” Assange also discusses a little-known meeting he held in June 2011 with Google CEO Eric Schmidt. We air an excerpt of audio recording from that meeting.

Video: Julian Assange Pt.2: U.S. Probe of WikiLeaks & “Show Trial” of Bradley Manning Aims to Scare Whistleblowers

29 May 2013 – Democracy Now!

Bradley Manning, the Army private accused of disclosing a trove of government documents and cables to WikiLeaks, is set to go on trial next week. Manning has already pleaded guilty to misusing classified material he felt “should become public,” but has denied the top charge of aiding the enemy. Speaking from his refuge in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange calls Manning’s case “a show trial … to terrorize people from communicating with journalists and communicating with the public.” Assange also discusses his own legal status as he continues to evade extradition to Sweden. Assange fears that returning to Sweden would result in him being sent to the United States, where he fears a grand jury has secretly indicted him for publishing the diplomatic cables leaked by Manning.

WikiLeaks is a rare truth-teller. Smearing Julian Assange is shameful By John Pilger

14 February 2013 — John Pilger

Last December, I stood with supporters of WikiLeaks and Julian Assange in the bitter cold outside the Ecuadorean embassy in London. Candles were lit; the faces were young and old and from all over the world. They were there to demonstrate their human solidarity with someone whose guts they admired. They were in no doubt about the importance of what Assange had revealed and achieved, and the grave dangers he now faced. Absent entirely were the lies, spite, jealousy, opportunism and pathetic animus of a few who claim the right to guard the limits of informed public debate.

Blowing Up the Past, Destroying the Future By by Sarah Glynn

21 November 2012New Left Project

In July 2011 I joined thousands of other Dundee residents gathered at key viewpoints to watch the grand demolition of four multis – or multi-storey housing blocks – that had dominated the city skyline for four decades. Turn away at the wrong moment, and you missed it. 440 homes were reduced to rubble in seconds. Dundee – an ex-industrial city rebranded as ‘City of Discovery’ – has, as one of its most successful companies, an award-winning demolition firm and the City Council has provided that firm with plenty of business.
