re:generation project – Hive this weekend

re:generation project – Hive

regeneration_rainbow
On the weekend of Feb 6th and 7th, The Hive Dalston will open its 4 floors of social space to host re:generation – a ground-breaking grassroots festival showcasing what can happen when we get together for the common good.
What began in December with a conversation about a suitable community venue for a free paint job, has snowballed into an unprecedented experiment in community collaboration.
regeneration_project2
A stellar cast of social enterprises, local businesses and volunteers, grouped into 12 themed teams, have created a diverse and original program of activities for the benefit of the community, featuring:
– The building of a new recording studio and painting of the community gallery (re:space)
– Live performances – from spoken word to jazz, and an open call to perform (re:live)
– Herb growing workshops (re:grow)
– Arts and crafts workshops, and creative speakers (re:create)
– Bike clinics, electrical repairs, give/take fair (re:start)
– A community art exhibition on the subject of collective action (re:present)
– A community discussion forum also on collective action, hosted within the art exhibition (re:imagine)
– Matchmaking between community organisations (re:connect)
– A community jog, and yoga class (re:fresh)
– Cooking and cocktail classes, a cake competition, and more with food waste (re:fuel)
Tune in to a special festival preview on Resonance FM this Friday 29th from 8-9pm… especially if you’re looking to get your artistic talents on stage, on the walls, on air or online.
We’ll be broadcasting the event in many ways including on East London Radio from the new radio station, so everyone can be involved, with the full program and registration details to be available soon.

We took our red line to Paris, now let’s put a red line around the front lines of the climate struggle in the UK. Reclaim the Power has called for an escalation of climate justice actions in the wake of the Paris climate talks. From fossil fuels to border controls, the arms industry to financial markets, we hope to link up groups taking action, and create new avenues for people to engage in civil disobedience.

    Rescuing refugees from drowning will be ‘criminalized’ under new EU law – activists — RT UK

    Rescuing refugees from drowning will be ‘criminalized’ under new EU law – activists — RT UK

    © Giorgos Moutafis
    A petition has been launched calling on EU leaders to scrap plans that would criminalize those who rescue migrants and refugees arriving on the Greek islands as part of a push to secure the border between Turkey and Greece. 
    London-based civil liberties watchdog Statewatch has released the confidential European Commission report detailing the plan, which was outlined in talks between EU ministers in Amsterdam late last month.
    The proposed plans would remove the exemption for charities, volunteer groups and others who provide “humanitarian assistance” to refugees from being considered “smugglers.” Under the new rules, which are aimed at reducing human smuggling and trafficking, these groups and individuals would be criminalized.
    The EU would instead create a state-run agency that would force would-be volunteers to register with the police and work under tightly controlled EU relief plans.
    The petition, which has amassed almost 5,000 signatures to date, was launched by an activist in London and calls on the European Commission to scrap the plans.

    Teflon cookware can damage your health | Natural Health 365

    (NaturalHealth365) Many people would say Teflon is a modern day “convenience”. Cookware coated with Teflon makes cooking and cleaning up much easier. In fact, for the past fifty years, DuPont has made a significant amount of money by making non-stick surfaces common in the marketplace. There’s just one problem – teflon is toxic and can make you sick! (details below)
    Non-stick cookware may cause cancer
    The non-stick coating, used in Dupont Teflon pans, has been found to release one or more (up to 15) different toxic gases when heated to high temperatures. Did you know that non-sick cookware is made with a chemical known as perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), which has been labeled carcinogenic by a scientific review panel that advises the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

    3,024 
    of 4,000 signatures

    TO: UK GOVERNMENT

    Enough! 
    Please sign this petition to support us, the UK’s Romany Gypsy and Traveller people, in bringing down a new law which seeks to meddle with who we are and deny us and our children a home.
    The new law, brought in by this government effectively resurrects, highlights and adapts ‘gypsy status, a centuries old planning definition that was rarely used and that has fallen foul of legal challenges in the past. 
    According to the new incarnation of ‘gypsy status’ that was passed into planning law last year, we will only be classed as Romany Gypsies and Irish, Scottish, English and other Travellers if we ‘travel’ for 
    work purposes. 
    This has been done by the government to allow councils to artificially reduce the number of Gypsies and Travellers in their area at the stroke of a bureaucrat’s pen.
    There is no cultural or ethnic dimension to ‘gypsy status’. Similar to the common racist refrain more often found on online comment threads about us – according to this government, if we don’t ‘travel’ then we can’t possibly be Gypsies and Travellers. Already councils are sending out researchers who are trying to get us to fill in forms with detailed and intrusive questions about our ‘travelling’ habits.
    If we don’t have ‘gypsy status’ we may no longer develop and build a Gypsy and Traveller site and we may even lose our place on an existing public or private legal Traveller site.
    The result will be that many Gypsies and Travellers will be forced back onto the road because they will be made homeless, or to ‘prove’ their ethnic identity and heritage to retain their homes. This will 
    be happening in a climate where ‘travelling’ has already been effectively criminalised. This will drive an exponential increase in unauthorized roadside camps and could create tensions and hostility between settled and nomadic groups. 
    We see this as a direct attack on our culture and heritage and on our children’s futures and their right to define who they are in their own terms. We see it as a racist attack in that it seeks to marginalise 
    us and deny us a righ1ul and legitimate place in this society.
    So if you are a Gypsy or Traveller please sign this to help safeguard our future. 
    If you are a non-Gypsy or Traveller please sign this to help us safeguard our future and to bring down this racist law that belongs to a darker past.
    The Romany word for ‘enough’ is ‘Dosta!’ 
    The Gammon word for ‘enough’ is ‘Grīnta’ 
    We have had enough of the racism against us that comes right from the top. 
    Dosta! 
    Grīnta !
    Thank you
    “Justice, Equality and Freedom is for all, or none at all”

    Why is this important?

    Romany Gypsies and Irish Travellers have ethnic status, yet we are marginalised and have to constantly fight to maintain our cultural way of life. 
    There is an dire shortage of appropriate accommodation for Romany Gypsy and Irish Traveller families, and this is going to made even worse with the passing of the new law. 
    Our ethnicity is being challenged unless we can prove we are Romany Gypsies or Irish Travellers, to do this we have to prove we travel for work purposes, yet at the same time when we do travel we have no places where we can stop. 
    We are in an impossible situation that threatens our very existence. 
    Please support us to protect and maintain our cultural and tradition way of life.

    ​If we down at least one UFO we'll be facing an interstellar war - Former Defense Minister of Canada RT — SophieCo

    ​If we down at least one UFO we'll be facing an interstellar war - Former Defense Minister of Canada

     
    He was Canadian minister of Defense in 1960s, ruling over the country’s armed forces during the time of the Cold War – and when he retired he publicly stated that we are not alone in the universe, and some guests from outer space actually live here, on planet Earth. Is this fantasy? Is someone actually watching us? Today we ask the man who says UFOs are a serious business – Paul Hellyer.
    Follow@SophieCo_RT
    Sophie Shevardnadze:Our guest today is the Honorable Paul Hellyer, former minister of Defense of Canada, and he believes that life forms from space are present on Earth. It’s great to have you on our show. Why do you say that UFOs are as real as airplanes flying over our heads?
    Paul Hellyer: Because I know that they are. As a matter of fact, they’ve been visiting our planet for thousands of years and one of the cases that would interest you most if you give me two or three minutes to answer is that during the Cold War, 1961, there were about 50 UFOs in formation flying south from Russia across Europe, and Supreme Allied Command was very concerned and about ready to press the “Panic” button when they turned around and went back over the North Pole. They decided to do an investigation and they investigated for 3 years and they decided that, with absolute certainty, four species - at least – had been visiting this planet for thousands of years. We have a long history of UFOs and of course there has been a lot more activity in the last few decades, since we invented the atomic bomb and they are very concerned about that and the fact that we might use it again, and because the Cosmos is a unity and it affects not just us but other people in the Cosmos, they are very much afraid that we might be stupid enough to start using atomic weapons again, and this would be very bad for us and for them as well.

    Carbon emissions boosted 2014 January storm risk 'by 43%'

    floodsImage copyrightGetty Images
    Image captionResearchers say that climate change has had an impact on floods that hit many parts of England in 2014
    Severe storms in the south of England in 2013/14 were made more likely by human emissions of carbon dioxide.
    A new study says that climate change increased the chances of a once-in-a-century wet January in 2014 by 43%.
    Researchers were also able to estimate the climate impact on rainfall, river flow and properties at risk.
    Citizen scientists made key contributions to the study using their computers to run simulations of UK weather patterns. 
    The winter of 2013/14 was marked by a near continuous line of severe storms that rolled across southern England and Wales. 
    In Somerset, Devon, Dorset, Cornwall and the Thames Valley, the incessant rain lead to significant flooding. Some 5,000 homes and businesses were under water, and there were nearly 19,000 insurance claims with £451m in insured losses.

    Many environmental and social problems are so complex and overwhelming it’s hard to know where to begin. But pioneering communities around the world are showing what it takes to succeed.
    As we assemble their stories, the scientific goal of the EcoTipping Points Project is to better understand what made them successful. The pragmatic goal is to help people identify "tipping point" levers right at home – concrete actions that they and their community can act upon. The EcoTipping Points Project is dedicated to making the stories and their lessons known through the media, workshops, and direct collaboration with community groups.
