On the occasion of our last newsletter raising questions about who «owns» campaigns like the one against bee kiling pesticides
we wrote: This is an occasion to celebrate a partial victory – to ask even more about bee-killing radiation from mobile phones and HAARP; and to stay wide awake as to «who and what moves the world». Is it really AVAAZ who «won the battle»? Below you find some brandnew well-researched critical voices… a.o. on the secrecies behind AVAAZ (who claims that they have made the change); an interview where avaaz does NOT answer the important questions (auf deutsch, sorry…); and a Guardian article on «clicktivism».
We invite you to make up your own opinion by studying the links below, do your own research – and in the meantime: Engage with real people, in local initiatives as the ones we are featuring in this newsletter. Make the grassroot grow….
Here are some interesting resources and opinions :
