    This should be a very interesting meeting, I'll post a link to the mp3 of it when it's up:

    Public Meeting: The Hidden Holocaust - Our Civilizational Crisis

    Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed 20th November 2007, 6pm

    LT1, Sir Alexander Fleming Building Imperial College London Exhibition Road South Kensington London, SW7 2AZ

    2007: global food shortages cause riots (FAO)

    2008: global banking collapse (Arlington Institute)

    2011: world oil reserves critically depleted (Independent)

    2015: climate change point-of-no-return (Guardian)

    2025: two-thirds of world in water shortage (BBC)

    2100: Earth uninhabitable (UN)

    The crisis of the planet Earth is so profound that all of our lives will be caught up in it.

    Our lives will change because of it.

    Our lives will change because of the cataclysmic events happening now and the even greater dislocations to come.

    The global crises faced by industrial civilization are rooted in the heart of the international imperialist system.

    Are you concerned by these alarming trends? Are they unavoidable? Or can we exercise awareness and skill to deal with them?

    Nafeez will discuss the global political economy, ideology, culture and value-system underlying these crises. He will bring together key developments in science, philosophy, and economics, along with groundbreaking activism from the global social justice movement, to show not only that "another world is possible", but that it's already in the making.

    The first three, of four, parts of his essay that covers the ground that this meeting covered are now online:

    The Hidden Holocaust--Our Civilizational Crisis Part 1: The Holocaust in History http://nafeez.blogspot.com/2007/11/hidden-holocaus...

    The Hidden Holocaust--Our Civilizational Crisis Part 2: EXPORTING DEMOCRACY http://nafeez.blogspot.com/2007/12/hidden-holocaus...

    The Hidden Holocaust--Our Civilizational Crisis, Part 3: THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT? http://nafeez.blogspot.com/2008/01/hidden-holocaus...

    It's a nice summary of what many people here are already aware of, well worth reading.

    It's also been reposted to Indymedia:

    I guess I haven't been the only one wondering what Nafeez Ahmed has been up to, the latest from his blog:

    Sorry to have been out of the picture for so long, but I've felt it more important to focus limited time and resources on developing more meaningful and strategic responses to the unfolding of various crises. Apart from that I've also been intermittently ill - won't bore anyone with unnecessary details - but am slowly getting back into things.

    First big development is the Institute for Policy Research & Development now has a proper home....

    So please check out the new improved IPRD website at http://www.iprd.org.uk/ .

    ...

    Apart from struggling to finish revising my PhD thesis, my main current project has been a major interdisciplinary analysis of global crises, expanding in a way on the articles and talks I've been doing lately on the 'hidden holocaust' theme. This will be a critical review of most of the crucial evidence on climate change, peak oil, economic recession, and the food crisis, aimed at developing a very clear understanding of what's going on, where it's likely to go, and the kind of thinking and practice that will be needed in the coming post-industrial world.

    This is very welcome news, if peole haven't watched his Hidden Holocaust lecture, linked above, then you should.

    I love Nafeez Ahmed. I have read all his books. I also met him at the first 9/11 Inquiry conference in San Francisco back in 2004. Thanks for this post.

    Nafeez Ahmed is doing a public meeting on Monday on the Food Crisis and Peak Oil:

    Food Crisis and Peak Oil

    Yes, great to see Nafeez Ahmed continuing to address the most vital issues and expand the truth movement.

    What we are now witnessing seems to be the demise of capitalism. The ultimately untenable nature of a system based on infinite consumption, greed, and exploitation is becoming clear. People will continue to look for other scapegoats (the illuminati or market regulation or welfare mothers or gay people or whatever), but the the obvious truth is beginning to manifest itself.

    This demise may be drawn out, and what emerges is not guaranteed to be any better, but I think we should all recognize and appreciate the fact that reality is finally catching up with us.

    This is the real heart of the truth movement.

    It was a really good talk, Garath from We Are Change London recorded it and has posted it to Indymedia:

    http://www.indymedia.org.uk/en/2008/11/413658.html

    Well worth listening to, it's great that he manages to remain positive in the face of the looming, multi-faceted, crisis we are facing.

    Garath also posted photos of the slides -- see the end of the article linked above.

    Nice. It's effective having photos of all the slides from the presentation up there. I hope Garath understands how the WAC leadership has never been strong on supporting these issues.

    And the Energy Bulletin have:

    The section on peak oil begins about 40% into the talk. Nafeez Ahmed has done his homework - he cites Chris Skrebowski, Colin Campbell, Jeffrey Brown ("Explort Land Model"), the Energy Watch Group and the IEA's recent report. I hadn't heard Ahmed before and I was impressed by the wide-ranging nature of his talk.

    Nafeez Ahmed covers similar themes in a 2007 talk. See next item. -BA

    http://www.energybulletin.net/node/47352

    And the 2007 talk they link to is The Hidden Holocaust - Our Civilizational Crisis talk.

    Nafeez Ahmed is speaking at a conference on Saturday in London on "Collateral Damage: The Intersection of Economic, Ecological and Energy Crises and The End of Industrial Civilisation as We Know It", hopefully it will be recorded and posted to the net somewhere.

    A new article fro Nafeez Ahmed concludes:

    the system has perhaps another 10-15 years before irreversible collapse as the impact of peak oil kicks in. In this time-frame, as working people are increasingly upset, confused and angry about the acceleration of socio-economic injustice, activists and researchers have unprecedented opportunity to work harder than ever to develop a vision for the future that is just, inclusive and holistic. The time to prove that there are meaningful alternatives is now.
