Please read the Principles of Solidarity working draft

Interested in starting your own General Assembly, here is a quick guide from Takethesquare.net

You can also search by country to discover that Google, the owner of You Tube, has complied with the majority of requests from governments, particularly in the United States and the UK, not only to remove You Tube videos, but also specific web search terms and thousands of “data requests,” meaning demands for information that would reveal the true identity of a You Tube user. Google claims that the information sent to governments is “needed for legitimate criminal investigations,” but whether these “data requests” have been backed up by warrants is not divulged by the company.

“Between July 1 and Dec. 31 (2009), Google received 3,580 requests for user data from U.S. government agencies, slightly less than the 3,663 originating from Brazil,” reports PC World. “The United Kingdom and India sent more than 1,000 requests each, and smaller numbers originated from various other countries.”

Wie mehrere Zeitungen und Online-Portale berichteten, ereignete sich der Vorfall nach einem Treffen der NRW-Landesgruppe der Unionsfraktion im Vorfeld der Abstimmung über den Euro-Rettungsschirm EFSF. Bosbach lehnte die Ausweitung des EFSF entgegen der Linie von Regierung und Fraktionsführung ab, ebenso wie auch einige andere Abgeordnete von Union und FDP. Pofalla soll nach Angaben von Sitzungsteilnehmern Bosbach weiter mit den Worten beschimpft haben: "Du machst mit Deiner Scheiße alle Leute verrückt." Innen-Experte Bosbach verteidigte seine harte Haltung im Streit um den Euro-Rettungsschirm mit Verweis auf Gewissensentscheidungen von Abgeordneten: "Ronald, guck bitte mal ins Grundgesetz, das ist für mich eine Gewissensfrage." Pofalla antwortete: "Lass mich mit so einer Scheiße in Ruhe."

Shopping centres die in stages: like retail lepers, they lose limbs. Anchors are what keep them alive. They are the heart – a popular franchise, supermarket or department store that directs traffic past the smaller stores. Anchors such as food halls and cinema complexes are placed at the end of long stretches of glazed windows. The industry standard states that the maximum distance shoppers are prepared to walk between anchors is three hundred metres. This is called anchor drag.

Competing centres will often anchor-steal in an attempt to attract tenants and shoppers alike. When an anchor leaves, dead zones appear. Pedestrian traffic diverts like a dammed river. Blank corridors. Roller-doors. To survive, the weak gather around the strong.

via Reza Negarestani: Cyclonopedia: Complicity with Anonymous Materials (2008) at Monoskop/log - Download pdf


Cyclonopedia is theoretical-fiction novel by Iranian philosopher and writer Reza Negarestani. Hailed by novelists, philosophers and cinematographers, Negarestani’s work is the first horror and science fiction book coming from and written on the Middle East.

‘The Middle East is a sentient entity—it is alive!’ concludes renegade Iranian archaeologist Dr. Hamid Parsani, before disappearing under mysterious circumstances. The disordered notes he leaves behind testify to an increasingly deranged preoccupation with oil as the ‘lubricant’ of historical and political narratives.

A young American woman arrives in Istanbul to meet a pseudonymous online acquaintance who never arrives. Discovering a strange manuscript in her hotel room, she follows up its cryptic clues only to discover more plot-holes, and begins to wonder whether her friend was a fictional quantity all along.

Meanwhile, as the War on Terror escalates, the US is dragged into an asymmetrical engagement with occultures whose principles are ancient, obscure, and saturated in oil. It is as if war itself is feeding upon the warmachines, leveling cities into the desert, seducing the aggressors into the dark heart of oil …
