FRANCE: February 29, 2008
PARIS - Europe's largest seed cooperative Limagrain said on Thursday it had moved its research tests into genetically modified (GM) crops to the United States, put off by France's hostility to GMs and the destruction of test fields.
An aggregates processing plant on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park has been sabotaged. The Plant is owned by Bardon Aggregates a member of Aggregate Industries, part of the Holcim Group. Aggregate Industries own the Glensanda Quarry on the north west coast of Scotland. The quarry is europes biggest coastal quarry and has it's own port. Aggregate Industries plan to expand the quarry from 125 ha to 206 ha giving reserves of 814 million tonnes of granite. They currently extract 7-8 million tonnes a year and can increase this to 15 million tonnes. The expansion plan includes removing the peaks "The Mam" and "Lag a 'mhaim" from the skyline. This would be visible from the Scottish islands and will effect the ecology of many species including otters, seals, and golden eagles. 20% of the stone extracted will go to major road network construction across europe.

Yet another police surveillance camera was put out of use today during a large demonstration against pension reform and the rest of the Greek government's neoliberal policies.
One activist climbed on a ladder and painted the camera lens using an extension, while others unscrewed a compartment at its base, cut the wires and filled it with foam that solidified soon thereafter. Leaflets against surveillance and repression by the state were handed out.

The hummingbird is the logo of Bovis Homes but dont let rapid wingbeats blur your memory. Lest we forget.....
Bovis took over all prefab sites in Bristol, and the old and poor were moved out to make way for new luxury apartment homes. Bovis lie when they say they meet the legal requirement of 17% social housing. They dont.
