the First Mediterranean Social Forum begins today, this day is also the day made famous in the famous james joyce novel Ulysses. how are things with you all, are any of you participating in the med social forum, were you aware of it
the book ulysses was inspired by greek legend of odysseus wanderings around the med, it sees a day in the life of 2 dubliners, stephen dedaelus and leopold bloom, who wander around having an adventure in the city.
im sure some of you remember a small wandering workshop from la CP last year, happy memories to those that wandered


and yes, socrates is still one of my heroes
why?

creating the biggest gig ever?



1 day, 5 countries;
britain, france, germany, italy, USA

why are they doing it?

"we dont want peoples money, we want people to come and make a difference" says bob geldof

music men and women try to get everyone to come to protest at the G8 meeting (the gathering of the 8 leaders of the worlds richest 8 nations) in scotland to help erradicate world poverty
check out films, audio, and much links on BBC site

surely this is a massive logistical task, Scottish homes are being opened up, mosques, churches, community halls are all opening up to offer sleeping space for those coming to G8 protests
we will be going over to scotland with DISSENT, are there any of you invovled with the summers mobilisations, will any of you go to the free concerts, is this use of commercial popstars to try to raise awareness making any difference?

le petit cinema @ condition publique


"for the first time, we are witnessing the emergence of a "global civil society" represented by nongovernmental organizations, which are often active in several countries and communicate across borders.....whose vision is based on the respect of human dignity, the ethics of sustainability and an ecological view of the world"
wrote fritjof capra in "the hidden connections" (2002)

this was le petit cinema number 3 (night 3? of EASA
) ; the first one put on inside the condition publique; to the EASAians, as it was more important for us to work with the outside world, get more involved
after that undercurrents "globalisation and the media" went on
then planxty to cool down

showed
imc mayday, provoked huge debate, including people from nicaragua and el salvador; countries that really have felt the pain of unfair trade rules and the force of the US war machine

more stories and films and le petit cinema @ the streets of dublin to come

little by little

EASA and the architectural community are in a position to improve things
for the most part i do not like these communities as they are not interested in trying to really change things

those working for global justice are the ones that inspire me; it is a pleasure to work with them, it is only a matter of time before the ark community realise whats going on, or what went on,
hopefully they wont just read about it in books but they will actually be part of the growing network that is changing the world

allez les pirates

if you need to find out more about what my views are you can watch the 34 seconds longFUSPEY film manifesto,
