President Obama is soon to make a decision on whether to press one of THE big red climate self destruct buttons..
and is under considerable pressure from a fake grassroots campaign funded by um ..certain interested parties (its called Astroturfing ) into allowing the Tar Sands nightmare to go ahead.. if you don't know anything about the Tar Sands have a quick google...
as seems to be the way of politics this won't happen unless a strong show of resistance can be seen to help obama say no.
Anyway there is a campaign of peaceful civil disobedience planned in washington..

The first in a series of remixes on 12" vinyl will be released on Monday 4th July (or Tuesday in the US & Canada).
The series kicks off with Caribou remixing Little by Little, and a remix of Lotus Flower by Jacques Greene, both of which we we're really excited about.
Hopefully you will find the vinyl in your local independent record shop, but if not, you can buy by mailorder here from the 4th. If you don't have a record player, high quality digital WAV or FLAC versions will be available here, here and here, or as MP3 or WAV from our own site here. Or you can just listen to them here:
More 12" remixes will be released every couple of weeks over the summer until we run out of remixes... or summer. On the next one we've got Nathan Fake (Morning Mr Magpie) and remixes of Bloom by Mark Pritchard.
mmm you know away from the celebrity media circus on the other side of the valley, the OTHER glastonbury happened. the one you aren't reading much about, the one they couldn't hang. the fun, chilled out and insane one. the one that couldn't give a flying toss who you are really. the one we went for. the one around the stone circle, and under the flags. in the rabbit hole. in the darkest depths of shangri-la. around the van de graff lightning generator crackling through in soaking sky, and in a crashed aeroplane fuselage where we and our friends were.. nigel and i Djing.. until dawn here's a selection of what we played.

Those big drag nets that trawlers drop to the bottom of the ocean and decimate all life in their path?
And use radar while local fishermen loose their livelihoods? Just to fill empty shelves in Supermarkets? This lot are using lottery money internationally to stop all that.
