I've been reading some of the international neo-liberal legislation and it makes a complete monkey out of national governments and democracy, as if they had heaps of power anyway!

Did you know that if recent legislation had been passed US companies who dont want to pollute america since they live there and it would be unhealthy for them can dump toxic, radioactive, nuclear waste where they like and if anyone protests then the government can be taken to an international multi-national court that will force the dumping and FINE THE NATION, I mean your paying for the privilege of disagreeing!

What's even more shocking is that you dont read this in the papers, even the free press like the Guardian where slow to get onto this issue, and these things just get passed without much attention being paid to them and WHAT THE FUCK?!! You wake up one morning and you dont have any rights!!
