In October last year he was making chortly jokes accross the chamber about an obvious point of principal to anybody else but himself. read full story / add a comment

Inspired by Bristol Rising Tide's recent polar bear occupation of the Royal Bank of Scotland HQ in Trinity Quay, UWE Students affiliated with People and Planet today held a demonstration against Natwest for being the largest single UK financier of oil and gas projects around the world.

I recently moved from Bristol to India. Looking back on my time in Bristol it is clear that, for all the bad press, a lot of people still had a sneaking suspicion that Western corporations are making some sort of contribution to improving the lot of people in the third world. Let me present a counter-example. read full story / add a comment
Persimmon has just given an artist from Redfield three hundred pounds as sponsorship for her exhibition of photos of the inside of the Elizabeth Shaw chocolate factory in Greenbank.
Is this cheap and easy way to persuade everyone that they are very very nice, or purchasing the rights to put their name all over her exhibition and implying that they are winning the fight to buy the factory site? read full story / add a comment
The "Shell Wildlife Photographer of the Year Award" exhibition comes to Bristol Museum from 15th December to 13th January.
How can it be that the winner of the 2007 Goldman Environmental Prize (the highest honour awarded for protection of the environment) won that prize for resisting the environmental destruction being caused by the sponsor of the 2007 Wildlife Photographer of the Year Award?

How can Easton's most loved grocery store promote "Fairtrade" products when they fail to pay their own staff the minimum wage? Just imagine a world where the bosses of this shop had the mighty power of the supermarkets - you thought Tesco's were nasty capitalists, you haven't seen nothing!!!!
Next time youre in there, watch how they treat their staff and if you're feeling brave, ask one of the bosses if they are paying the minimum wage to ALL of their employees.
It's great to support local business, but only if they offer a better alternative than the corporations - not worse!! read full story / add a comment
