At a technical level GreenNet members operate as a network of ‘client’ computers all connected to a central server that lets them communicate with each other, and prompt actions in different points on the network.

But the tag cloud below gives a more interesting perspective on the voices and issues that are connected through the services we provide. Click on the tags to journey through the network of resources, projects, stories and campaigns from throughout the GreenNet community of people working for peace, the environment, gender equality and human rights. You’ll find alternative news headlines from the archives as well as interactive spaces to post events and job vacancies.

27/10/2014   Government's stealth attack on civil liberties

The coalition’s criminal justice and courts bill is seeking to dismantle judicial review, one of the most powerful tools citizens have over their government. In almost every case of injustice by the Home Office it is judicial review which allowed the most vulnerable people in the country to challenge the most powerful.

In Britain, you’d never be able to tell from the outside, but hundreds of our hospitals, schools, prisons, roads and even homes are no longer run by the public, the state, the people. Politicians have given them away to private companies – only to have the public sector rent them back at extortionate costs. Taxpayers’ money is making these tax-avoiding corporations rich, while the people are losing critical frontline services. This is the Private Finance Initiative (PFI).

From PFI contracts that make hospitals three times as expensive as public funding would, to the bubble in the housing sector, from graduates’ average debt burdens of £44,000, to unpayable energy bills …debt affects all aspects of our lives.

Be it private, national or local government, debt is one of the neoliberal system’s most powerful tools to discipline us.

But together, we can overcome the shame attached and the idea that you need to be an expert to understand what is happening.

Together we can start building strategies for resistance.
