Analysis

Conflict Within the Peace Movement

Nick Cooper | Those of us who put effort in working for peace, justice and harmony, may find ourselves exhibiting the very opposite of these values. Within volunteer groups, there is sometimes hostility, infighting, and even threats and violence. We are often so sure that we're right, that we become authoritarian. We feel that our quiet and peaceful voice simply isn't being heard, and we need to switch to a louder hostile one. Often, we abandon the work of organizing as our groups become consumed with infighting. The work of transforming our interactions into healthier ones is replaced by a bitter mantra: "if only we could get rid of these certain people, everything would be fine." more...  3 Comments

NYU Inc | Today was GUS’s Negotiate Now! a day of action at NYU, and the event was a big success.

Buy Nothing Day Critical Mass

roger m | By 7:30 or so the crowd grew to about 75-100 and moved out west and then south on 5th ave. There was a rumor that cops had indicated that the people wouldn't be arrested if the ride stayed below 42nd street, but this seemed unlikely after a row of 5-7 cop vans were seen waiting above Union Square on Broadway and there was a cop helecopter overhead. Soon the scooter cops (around 20 or so) came up along both sides of the mass at 5th ave and 12th street. more...  2 Comments

County Elections Board asks District Attorney to prosecute protestor

tim grier | Luzerne County Board of Elections voted unanimously to ask the District Attorney to persue charges against me for taking my time while voting.

Anyway, it has worked out great thus far... they are keeping the unjust ballot laws in the local media, which rarely touches on such topics. more...  0 Comments

Rodriguez Approves CIA Tortures --US Lawyers Front for CIA

Clayton Hallmark | We describe CIA treatment of prisoners so you can judge for yourself. Each escalation of maltreament reportedly comes ONLY after an inquiry to, and approval from, JOSE RODRIGUEZ, the CIA's Deputy Director of Operations (DDO) at the McLean, VA, headquarters. We describe how the torture works and how agents work it with Mr. Rodriguez (and allegedly with his predecessors, Stephen Kappes and James Pavitt).
The CIA shuttles the prisoners around the world on civilian aircraft, almost all of which the CIA owns. The CIA owns the aircraft through holding companies that have one employee -- a contracted private attorney in the US. A Smithfield, NC, firm, Aero Contractors, operates most of the planes. We show how the CIA aviation office works with private attorneys. The lawyers have no need to know what the planes are used for, and undoubtedly the CIA does not tell them about prisoner transports. more...  0 Comments
