    Maybe I've missed an announcement or two, but: given that Labour has embraced the Green New Deal, at what point are XR going to come off the political fence? There's a reasonable argument that they changed the political climate sufficiently for Labour to make that move, so what's the point in working hard to do that and then not campaigning for it to actually happen in, like, reality? Like having the winning lottery ticket but refusing to go to the shop to claim your prize...

    Plus they can advise voting for Labour (or at least excoriate the Tories) while still criticising their policies as they feel necessary....it's a win-win

    I guess they wouldn't want to be seen as too much of an adjunct to the Labour Party? Given the strong union voices in Labour that had to be brought off for any kind of the GND to become policy, who can blame 'em?

    if it was’t for peace and faith the other 11 site would not of held ground.
    they took about 200 into custody from those sites in the first three hours on monday... amazing to been told of ministers of all faiths of all kinds sitting in the middle of the road praying together. Strong together, thier power in non-violence.

    we now have three sites:
    Trafalgar sq. As i write this several hundred coppers are trying to clear it again, taking all our warmth and shelter, .. they took out toilets, food (thank god for the hare krishnas!), they reversed the pumps on the fountains to flood us out. we are not our kit. We are crew.
    tonight: mad max fancy dress - remember no drink or drugs, and party is over by midnight because tomorrow is another day. (i’m on shift all night here)
    City Airport: The press have complied with police request to clear the area, pain and compliance techniques now being used as standard practice to non-resisting protestors. They still as far as i know are holding strong.
    Vauxhall pleasure gardens: familly camp, set up yesterday. lambeth council is assisting with sanitation and other safety services. good for sleep and a massage.

    i'm intrigued about the xr "policy" on police. Activist types criticise them endlessly for this in most patronising terms, i wonder whether it's more deliberate - xr are disdainful of activism, though there are seasoned activists among them who know the ropes. But i haven't seen any activist type asking that question: what are the reasons why you are soft on cops?
    felt this deserved a more of an answer:

    i love xr for itÂ’s synthesis of so many great newish ideas. many from psychology.
    - other forms of effective power apart from force and cohesion (french & raven)
    - wilber, spectrum of consciousness, integral, going beyond poor me don’t you feel bad ‘green meanies’ etc. The ability to hold conflict... i.e. we are now in teal consciousness.
    - Marshall Rosenberg: (and active listening in general) getting in touch with feelings, understanding the needs behind those feelings. Conflict resilience through alternative stratagem to meet those needs..
    i.e. i empathise with my self and the police as individuals, they imo often have a need to provide safety for the group and find role and purpose in this. i get their pain caught in the system. i do not blame them individually. yes i feel ferocious rage at the same time.I also understand imo that groups of people have made decisions to destroy the potential of life in the future. Yes I very much blame the group and the idea space they hold who use these imo fatal strategies for life on this rare planet. This is such a struggle for me as i see how the police pick on minorities and the innocent and vulnerable in the last 3 days. many tears.


    here is an example of a message this morning on broadcast:
    “We remain non-violent and respectful where respect is shown to us. We avoid blaming and shaming those whose actions are also affected and fuelled by this toxic system - even police. These are part of our core Principles and Values that we ask Rebels to adhere to when they join our movement.

    As a result, it’s the suggestion of Media and Messaging reps that neither “We love you” nor “Shame on you” are appropriate chants to direct towards police.

    If you do want to address police, consider asking them whether they have children and are worried for them, or whether the government is doing enough in their eyes to protect us from a future of social instability and violent crime, e.g. when food shortages occur.”

    well, what they're doing is obviously political, but they don't want to ally themselves to a political party. I get the point about not wanting to be seen as an adjunct to the LP, but it's clear that if the Tories get in again (esp on the back of a no-Deal Brexit with greater US influence) then things will get much worse. Being 'neutral' at election time would be insane.

    Btw, interesting stuff about Google funding climate change denying groups, in order ultimately to protect their own legal immunity...

    The Teal paradigm refers to the next stage in the evolution of human consciousness.[1] When applied to organizations, this paradigm views the organization as an independent force with its own purpose, and not merely as a vehicle for achieving management's objectives. Teal organizations are characterized by self-organization and self-management. The hierarchical "predict and control" pyramid of Orange is replaced with a decentralized structure consisting of small teams that take responsibility for their own governance and for how they interact with other parts of the organization. Assigned positions and job descriptions are replaced with a multiplicity of roles, often self-selected and fluid. People’s actions are guided not by orders from someone up the chain of command but by ‘listening’ to the organization’s purpose. Unlike the highly static nature of Amber, Orange and Green organizations, the organizational structure in Teal is characterized by rapid change and adaptation, as adjustments are continuously made to better serve the organization's purpose.

    To understand the Teal organizational paradigm it is necessary to understand the level of human consciousness that it comes from. Abraham Maslow, the pioneering psychologist, and other authors agree that the shift from Green to Teal is a particularly momentous one in the human journey — so much so that Clare W. Graves, another psychologist known for his work in developmental models, and others in his wake have used the term “first-tier” consciousness for all stages up to and including Green and the term “second-tier” for the stages starting with Teal. All “first-tier” stages consider that their worldview is the only valid one, and that all other people are dangerously mistaken.[2] People transitioning to Teal can accept, for the first time, that there is an evolution in consciousness, that there is a momentum in evolution towards ever more complex and refined ways of dealing with the world (hence the term “Evolutionary-Teal”).[3][4] See also Developmental Perspective on Organizations.

    The problem lies with public schools working from an Amber / conformist mindset system while the world needs an evolutionary Teal consciousness that shifts our world towards healthier/happier systems and people.

    Do business owners/CEOs even run strategic meetings with their employees?

    The CEOs are usually the alphas with the brightest ideas. What good can an employee bring to the table other than complain, they aren't paid enough

    Organizations are gradually approaching that phase where employees become their own boss. A system without hierarchy. Some companies have already implemented the strategy and it works. It’s termed the “Teal Level of Consciousness”

    There followed what Icke called his "turquoise period". He had been channelling for some time, he wrote, and had received a message through automatic writing that he was a "Son of the Godhead", interpreting "Godhead" as the "Infinite Mind".[67] He began to wear only turquoise, often a turquoise shell suit, a colour he saw as a conduit for positive energy.[68][69] He also started working on his third book, and the first of his New-Age period, The Truth Vibrations.
