Well, that was a week wasn’t it? We found out that the police state was even more advanced than some of us had feared, that austerity is set to continue for a whole other parliament, and that the Labour party have now officially signed up to the policy. This week I wanted to spend some time opening up the murky world of the corporate state – what is it? How does it work, and for who?
I’m both excited and terrified about next week as I am launching a crowd-funding project to support the site remaining a full time news site for the next year, and to make a short film on the Occupation of Palestine. You can preview the campaign here, it is scheduled to go live on Monday 1st July.
In the mean time, ditch your corporate news rag and pick up this online round up of the week’s news, by me.
Here is your week in Scriptonite. You can pour a cup of something nice, relax and have a read like an alternative Sunday paper.
If you would like to donate to support the blog, your contribution would be most appreciated. There are no ads on the site, and pay walls strike me as too exclusive.
