The great news for Greta and her young friends: "Green-piss" included with neo-Nazis on UK counter-terror list



A counter-terrorism police document distributed to medical staff and teachers as part of anti-extremism briefings included Greenpeace, Peta and other non-violent groups as well as neo-Nazis, the Guardian has learned.

The guide, produced by Counter Terrorism Policing, is used across England as part of training for Prevent, the anti-radicalisation scheme designed to catch those at risk of committing terrorist violence.

Last week, police said documents uncovered by the Guardian that listed the environmental protest group Extinction Rebellion (XR) alongside far-right extremists and jihadists were a local error.

But the list of groups viewed as a potential concern contained in the new 24-page document includes Extinction Rebellion. It also includes Greenpeace – among whose supporter

Ciclovida Lifecycle


This feature-length documentary pedals alongside a group of small farmers from Brazil who bicycle over 6,000 miles across the South American continent. They use the year of travel to exchange natural seeds, songs, and ideas about new ways of relating to the land. Moving stories from landless peasants, indigenous communities, and small farmers inform the travelers and viewers, expanding their understanding of the struggle to survive in the face of global agribusiness incursion and the takeover of monocrops for making biofuel.

Groundbreaking bid to save Scotland’s disappearing mountaintop forests
https://ecohustler.com/nature/groundbreaking-bid-to-save-scotlands-disappearing-mountaintop-forests/
The conservation charity’s volunteers will begin the first phase of planting next spring – with trees including downy willow and dwarf birch on the higher ground, and Scots pine and juniper on the lower slopes. Further planting will continue over the next few years, and self-seeded saplings will also be able to thrive in the grazing-free exclosure.

Bon Appétit ... or The delicate smell of her cunt (75$ only!)

Gywneth Paltrow Is Selling A Candle That Smells Like Her Vagina

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow is selling a candle that smells like her vagina at $75 a pop for her lifestyle and wellness company Goop. The name of the candle is none other than, you guessed it, “This Smells Like My Vagina.”

Paltrow first came across a scent that she said reminded her of the smell of her own vagina, she claims. The scent was then finalized for the “This Smells Like My Vagina” candle, which reportedly sold out within hours of its test run.

“This candle started as a joke between perfumer Douglas Little and GP — the two were working on a fragrance, and she blurted out, ‘Uhhh … this smells like a vagina,'” Goop outlined.

80$ cardboard box... or How to sell bullshit for young Greta T. and her friends

Savannah design studio reimagines cardboard box as chair

Jennifer Hahn
28 November 2019

After more than a year of prototyping, Savannah studio Donttakethisthewrongway has unveiled its design for a chair that consists of a single cardboard box.

In order to make it stand the test of time, it has been carefully "over-engineered" to be resistant to both wear and water.

"I think a cardboard box has the potential of being a chair without trying to," explained Eric Primo, one part of the three-man collective which also includes Nick Wargo and Crawford George.

"Green" morons in action... or 2020 Tokyo Olympics: Athletes Assured Cardboard Beds Won't Collapse During Sex


Athletes who would participate in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics have been assured that their cardboard beds won't collapse during sex, as long as they limit themselves to a two-in-a-bed.

Updated:January 13, 2020
Tokyo: International athletes are under pressure and harbour fears while performing not only on the field, but off it too. So it seems, if one were to go by assertions by the organisers of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Athletes who would participate in the Games have been assured that their cardboard beds won't collapse during sex, Mail Online reported.

The only caveat: As long as they limit themselves to a two-in-a-bed situation.

The manufacturer, Airweave, confirmed that the cardboard beds can take up to 200 kg load, more than enough for two people.

How to help koalas! :)

Aussie Bushfire Appeal

As you may know, all our toys are handmade in this wonderful country that we call home. We are proud Australians and to see our country burning like this is truly heartbreaking.

Thank you so much to everyone around the world who has already donated in any way. When you purchase our Down-Under Donation Dildo we will give 100% of the profits directly to the bushfire relief efforts. A specific charity has yet to be determined but we will be posting regular updates on our Instagram and Twitter with the amount of money raised and specifically where it is going.

In a country where history casts a long shadow and authoritarianism reigns, a guerrilla festival team commandeer cinemas to champion liberty – if the KGB don’t get there first

It’s the opening night of a film festival in Belarus, the forest country on the fault line between Europe and Russia that was devastated in the 20th century. Such evenings usually involve red carpets and movie stars, but this one features a black veil covering a big screen, like a mirror at an Irish wake.

In front of the shrouded screen is an eight-metre pyramid, also covered in black plastic. Music starts. People crawl in slow motion from behind and below the movie screen. They’re dressed in 1940s clothes. Some look homeless, or like shtetl Jews. Minsk was almost 50% Jewish until the Nazis arrived. The slo-mo people uncover the pyramid to reveal a man on stilts, like a Louise Bourgeois spider, who terrorises them. When he finishes, a man walks on stage and says he’s a campaigner against capital punishment in Belarus.

The Most Important COP Briefing the World Never Heard [Non-Profit Industrial Complex] - Invidious

A 2ºC rise in global temperature, which the non-profit industrial complex campaigned upon, would mean a 3.5ºC rise for Africa. This temperature is certain death for the African peoples – certain death for billions. In addition, a 2ºC global temperature rise guarantees a minimum 4ºC+ global temperature for future generations.

The breach of the Paris Agreement - Arctic News



Significant climate science evidence appears to have been left out of the equation. The accord hinges on the need to reduce emissions, which is essential, but it does not indicate how further temperature rise can be avoided under the conditions of a high-CO₂ atmosphere, which triggers carbon release, unless massive efforts at sequestration (drawdown) of greenhouse gases are undertaken. Inherent in global warming are amplifying positive feedbacks, including albedo (reflection) decline due to the melting of ice and the opening of dark water surfaces, increased water vapor contents of the atmosp

Swift judicial processes and more funding for shelters are badly needed, say campaigners

Sara Di Pietrantonio was 22 when she was strangled and burned to death by an ex-boyfriend who couldn’t accept the relationship was over. Her smouldering body was found at the side of a road on the outskirts of Rome by her mother, Concetta Raccuia. The police officer leading the case said Pietrantonio’s murder in June 2016 was the most heinous crime he had ever seen. Four months later, Stefania Formicola, 28, was shot dead in Naples by the husband she was trying to leave. Her two sons are being cared for by their grandmother, Adriana Formicola.

As more than 10,000 people marched in Rome on Saturday to mark the UN’s International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, Raccuia and Formicola shared their stories with the Guardian. More than three years have passed since their daughters were murdered but Italy is still struggling to protect women from violent men. Official figures released last week showed 142 women were murdered in 2018, up from 123 in 2017... Show more...

In Brazil, indigenous leader Paulo Paulino Guajajara was shot dead Saturday by illegal loggers, emboldened by far-right president Jair Bolsonaro. "The situation that the guardians of the forest face today is the struggle for survival," says João Coimbra Sousa of @amazonwatch.

The Great Green Wall

Traversing Senegal, Mali, Nigeria, Niger and Ethiopia, Modja follows the burgeoning Great Green Wall through Africa’s Sahel region — one of the most vulnerable places on earth (temperatures are rising 1.5 times faster than the global average) — laying bare the acute consequences of severe land degradation and accele...

Environmental defenders can be community activists, Indigenous peoples, lawyers, journalists or non-governmental organisation (NGO) staff. They are defined not by job title or political identity, but by their struggles to protect the environment or land rights. Many are part of collective struggles: they do not act alone.
