Scary stuff about this reactor being built in Finland. The Greens have two ministries in the government – Labour and Justice. Like all of the parties in government in Europe they are highly approved of by the European Green Party leadership as they increase funding and representation.
Yet the Finnish Greens are members of a government backing this huge development dangerously close to the Baltic Sea. See if you can join up the dots and solve the puzzle ..... was part of a statement just mailed into me (Dr Wall).
Depressing how fast a colour can fade! We need to be calling for real Green politics and resisting all those who see Green as a vehicle for personal goals rather than the political transformation we need to save the planet.
On a more positive note the new Icelandic government with the Green Left as junior partners have chucked out the increased whaling quote agreed by the noxious Icelandic Independence Party...its vitally important to elect Greens, but it is also vitally important to struggle within Green Parties for green policies!
Equally I am critical of Chavez's plans to build nuclear power stations in Venezuela....ideological struggle is necessary amigos.
I am sure I will have a flood of emails on why the Irish Green Party have to cut buses to raise money for the porketariat, etc, etc
By the way while I am not a member, good to see Greenpeace pushing forward their anti-nuclear campaign.
