|Who are these girls? They look like
they're having fun, dialing in to the rest of the globe from some european
internet cafe with inflatable furniture--maybe amsterdam? Techno backbeat,
espresso and hash permeate the air like god's own bakery, experienced rollers
take their time, smile when they light up, fingers relaxed, dangling...
Now, in case you've forgotten the day none of us would
ever forget, 9/11 is coming around again, and two groups are choosing to
comemmorate the event, both with cameras but from different angles...
4)"Call for Artists: A Global Arts and Film Project"
2002-06-24 until 2002-09-11
One World One Minute
Paisley, Scotland, , UK United Kingdom
The concept of the project is a simple one, but offers huge scope for all
concerned. We aim to have participants in EVERY country around the globe
record, simultaneously, ONE MINUTE of their lives, one minute of our world.
The minute can be recorded in a wide range of forms, and on any medium you
choose, from stills photography to video, sound cassettes, written word or
even drawings, any form at all. The project coordinators then aim to compile
this material into a feature length film which shall seek to capture that
one minute of our existence.
The finished piece shall explore the rich diversity that is both humanity
and our world, whilst allowing a voice to all people regardless of nationality,
religion, race, political viewpoint, gender or age. The rich diversity that
is Humanity shall be there for all to see and perhaps too, through all our
differences, we shall also see that which is inherently human, that which
is common to us all.
As for the timing of this event, at 12:48 GMT, September 11th 2001 a plane
struck the World Trade Centre. This was the first of four such attacks over
the next 92 minutes and led to the deaths of more than 2000 people from over
60 different countries.
That first attack, and those that followed, as well as the repercussions,
have led to immeasurable suffering throughout the world.
It is with this in mind that we have chosen 12:48 GMT September 11th 2002,
exactly one year after that first attack, as the one minute to record. For
many this will be a time of remembrance and reflection and surely there can
be no more appropriate time for an international collaboration that is about
communication, co-operation and sharing.
The coordinators of this project hope that you will agree that this is an
appropriate moment to preserve a snapshot of the world, to reflect on where
we are and where we are going and to offer others an insight into your world
and your life.
The organizers of this monumental project hope that you will see both the
potential and the worth in this project and choose to participate. This is
your opportunity to share a moment of your life, your world, with others,
an opportunity to both talk to and listen to the world, to join with others
around the globe and create a truly unique record and experience.
...At least, that's what I more or less imagined. Then,
cruising for info on electric organs (we recently found a sweet 1970s
discarded in an alley... Did you know the electic organ was patented in Canada
in 1928?), I found a picture from the same shoot, and it occured to me that
those global-minded women, those adventurous travelers, were nothing more
than stock photography! I'd been duped again. Don't believe everything
that you see...

the few artifacts which touches many and inspires people to kill. After money
has accumulated power by going from hand to hand, they collect it to be burned

International Day Against Video Surveillance
September 11, 2002
On 7 September 2001, a network of groups staged an International Day Against
Though it was a great success (in action were 23 different groups from 8
different countries!), this protest was inevitably overshadowed by the terrorist
attacks on the USA, which occurred on 11 September 2001, just four days later.
Since then, the governments of a great many countries -- the USA, Canada,
France, England, Italy, Germany and Israel, to name just a few -- have cynically
used the pretext of "fighting terrorism" to drastically increase their powers
of coercion at all levels of operation (i.e., local police departments, national
military forces, international intelligence gathering and covert operations)
and to use these expanded powers to wage illegal war against both suspected
"international terrorists" and legitimate political dissidents and activists
in their own countries.
And so it seems fitting that, in order to defend and reclaim our civil liberties,
we stage our *second* International Day Against Video Surveillance on 11
September 2002, and not on its actual first anniversary.
