About My Blog

My name is Godfrey and I work as a Union organiser – I’m a full-time and professional rabble-rouser.

This is my blog about the fight to create a socially just, ecological sustainable and prosperous world.

My blog will cover three main themes – every post will in someway relate to at least one of these themes:

(1) Just how stuffed the world is today (and was yesterday and possibly tomorrow).

(2) What a socially just, ecological sustainable and prosperous world would look like. Let’s get a bit creative here people – I want to engage in some meaningful debate. We’ve been told that there is no alternative to a world of corporate control but we were also taught that we’re only limited by our imaginations.

(3) The road map to another world. This includes discussion about strategies and tactics for change, including debate about what sort of change is possible where – this is the spot to be honest, hard-nosed and realistic (and I don’t mean the sort of realism which holds against all evidence and reason that the world will forever remain unchanged). Here I will include (at least what I find) interesting news from various social movements and nations around the world.

All opinions expressed in my blog are my own personal opinions and should not be read as the opinions of any other organisation or group.

    I have the same fascination with Standing; listening to his You Tube lecture I felt I was hearing the horn pipe of freedom, bearing witness to the injustice of commodified humanity and found most obscenely in the way that it has insiduously crept into the lives of children and the ethics of education. Do not think that it is only tertiary education that has been affected. The market forces of league tables produce a misaligned narrative about schools and identifies vulnerable students as negative equity. Children are at the mercy of educational leaders who are increasingly compelled to reinforce a marketing image over educational ethics and vocational values.

  2. Hey Godfrey when are the unions going to get around to supporting ecological sustainable urban development projects like NEO that create green jobs and a practical way forward that is of benefit to all ?
