Trump verspricht Großbritannien privilegiertes Handelsabkommen für harten Brexit

Die britische Regierung hat vor kurzem den langerwarteten Brexit-Plan vorgestellt. Wie es bekannt ist, hat das May-Kabinett ein mildes Szenario der Trennung ohne völligen Verzicht auf die existierenden Handels- und wirtschaftlichen Abkommen gewählt. Premierministerin Theresa May wurde sofort einer heftigen Kritik ausgesetzt.

Gǎi Dào Nr. 93, September 2018 erschienen

Chemnitz, eine 240 000-Einwohner*innen-Stadt, war für mehrere Tage in der Hand eines Nazi-Mobs. Wir müssen das als Zeichen sehen, uns auf mehreren Ebenen anzustrengen. Sowohl durch strategische Bündnisse mit gemässigteren Teilen der Gesellschaft und Jugendarbeit, aber auch Selbstschutz. Es gibt diesen fiesen Nazi-Sticker: “Liebe Antifa: Ohne Polizei wärt ihr alle tot”. Vielleicht gibt es Situationen in denen das stimmt, aber wir können uns nicht auf den Staat verlassen, da der Deutsche parlamentarische Kapitalismus erwiesenermassen nach rechts ziemlich offen ist.

Liebe Leute,
So wird es bald in der GaiDao aussehen, wenn nicht wieder mehr Menschen in der Redaktion mitarbeiten. Nachdem einige Leute wegen Überlastung ausgestigen sind, sind wir gerade viel zu wenige! Das ist weder anarchistisch nonch nachhaltig.
Vielleicht seid ihr auch nur alle im Urlaub. Und im September kommen ganz viele Texte und helfende Menschen.


To 5th August - nuclear and climate news

6th August Hiroshima 9th August Nagasaki  - so far these anniversaries are being ignored by the media. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-07xiaBl2vk But not in Japan.   Japanese children will pass on the history of Nagasaki's horror nuclear bombing on 9 Aug 1945

The heatwave continues in the Northern hemisphere, but rarely is that awful left-wing term "climate change"mentioned in news reports. It's affecting all the Northern countries, though there is more news coverage about USA and Europe. Human-caused climate change made heat wave five times more likely.

Much nuclear news about the heatwave, too. The nuclear lobby's poster boy, France, is copping it, with nuclear reactors having further cuts to their production, their cooling systems being unable to cope. Other countries' reactors are similarly affected.

AUSTRALIA

Investigative journalism greatly threatened by Nine-Fairfax merger.

NUCLEAR

ANSTO has the luxury of its commercial follies being funded by the tax-payer.

CLIMATE Aboriginal landowners Wangan and Jagalingou take land rights fight to the UN.

ENERGY   National Energy Guarantee (NEG) discriminates against rooftop solar, makes emissions task more expensive. Australia’s 2017 solar PV installation tally already eclipsed – in July.  Lots more news at reneweconomy.com.au

Small Modular Nuclear Reactors (SMRs) now recognised as unviable: governments still pouring money into them.

EUROPE.  Centre for Security Studies explains NATO Nuclear SharingNordic nuclear power plants hit by unprecedented heat wave. Europe's nuclear reactors affected by heat waves.

JAPAN.   Ahead of Olympic Games, Fukushima nuclear power plant gets an extreme makeover. Japan's NRA plans nuclear wastes burial at least 70 meters deep for about 100,000 years. Fukushima Unit 2 Refueling Floor Work Poses Risks. TEPCO's Plan For Some Of The More Dangerous Work At Daiichi.  No Long Term Storage Location for Fukushima Daiichi Spent Fuel.

UK£10bn Moorside nuclear power plant plunged into further doubt. Wylfa nuclear power to be very expensive for both taxpayers and consumers. Sorry history of UK's Moorside nuclear project, and why it might well be abandoned.  Climate change will bring sea level rise - bringing danger to Hinkley Point C nuclear site.

CLIMATE and nuclear news this week

On the Australian telly news, I saw English people having a lovely time on Brighton beach, because the weather is so warm.  But I think that there's more to the story of warm days in the Northern hemisphere. Some of the heatwave effects are not so jolly. Could it possibly have something to do with climate change? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dG-GlVSKbJQ

And, by the way, Japan's heatwave is a problem, now, in 2018. The Tokyo Olympics are planned for exactly the same time of the year, in 2020.

From next year tourists will not be allowed to climb Uluru in the Australian outback

From next year tourists will not be allowed to climb Uluru in the Australian outback. In a historic vote last year the Uluru-Kata Tjuta board of 12 people - including 8 Anangu Elders - decided to end the climb. This follows years of campaigning by the owners of the site, the Anangu Aborigines.

Nuclear and climate news in the week that was

Things appear to be  quiet on the global nuclear news scene. Lulled by the present stalemate in USA-North Korea nuclear tensions, the world's media complacently reports on the nuclear weapons build-up going on in USA, Russia,  India, Pakistan , and  to a much lesser degree China. The main focus of media about things nuclear is the hype about "new nuclear" - Small Modular Nuclear Reactors, (SMRs). So many news items in praise of SMRs - all sounding suspiciously as if copied from industry handout sheets, and all claiming that nuclear is the cure for climate change. Do these journalists ever bother to check on the facts about this claim?

Gǎi Dào Nr. 89, Mai 2018 erschienen

Vor kurzem ist in der neuen Schriftenreihe “DadA-Studien” die Arbeit “Deutschsprachige anarchistische Periodika heute. Ein Bericht zum digitalen Medienwandel” erschienen. Der Autor Günter Hoerig untersucht darin die Veränderungen regelmäßig erscheinender anarchistischer Publikationen im Zuge der neuen Möglichkeiten digitaler Medien. Anhand vier für die deutschsprachige anarchistische Medienlandschaft besonders relevante Publikationsbeispielen untersucht Hoerig deren Umsetzung, darunter auch die Găi Dào – “als Beispiel für eine Neugründung (2011), die direkt als elektronische Publikation startet” (S. 36).
