Israeli Actions in Gaza and Lebanon – Where is NYC?

concerned | I’ve been following the news really closely the past two weeks and I’ve been surprised to see a serious lack of coverage about what is going on in the Middle East on the IMC newswire. In addition to this, I’ve been surprised that I haven’t been able to find out about any emergency actions/events happening in NYC to assist in putting a halt to Israel’s military actions. ||Pay No Attention to the Israeli Bombardment of Lebanon ||Israel Kills Palestinians with U.S. Weapons ||Coverage of June 16 Emergency Rally more...  7 Comments

State Department Harasses Protesters at Salvadoran Consulate

NYCISPES | On Monday, July 10, 2006, New Yorkers gathered outside the Salvadoran Consulate on Park Avenue between 36th & 37th streets to protest the recent wave of repression in El Salvador, particularly the airforce attacks on students and administrators and subsequent police occupation of the National University. Activists denounced the repression and the US State Department’s support for the International Law Enforcement Academy (ILEA). ILEA has been condemned by human rights activists in El Salvador and elsewhere for its controversial refusal to prohibit US military instructors from teaching civilian law enforcement policy, strictly prohibited in the Peace Accords signed by El Salvador and the US government in 1992. more...  2 Comments

Gay Marriage and the Legislature

Reform NY: The Brennan Center Blog | In yesterday's ruling upholding New York's ban on gay marriage, the State's highest court noted that its holding did not preclude the Legislature from extending "marriage or all or some of its benefits to same-sex couples."

But getting the State Legislature to act on this issue is highly unlikely, noted Chief Judge Judith Kaye in her dissent -- regardless of how a majority of New Yorkers may feel about the issue. [Read More] more...  0 Comments

(In-the-Pen)dence Day

DMI Blog |

Speaking of liberty, though, how will America's over two million prisoners celebrate July 4th? In addition to those declared truths we hold to be self evident, it is equally evident that 2,085,620 people will be imagining a spectacular fireworks show from within their prison cells. How ironic --- and depressing --- that the country reputed for its love of liberty (symbolized by the Statue of Liberty and the Liberty Bell) "de-liberates" a greater percentage of its population than any other country in the world.

A Closer Look at Mexico's Preliminary Election Results

Al Giordano | In a few days we will begin to see who is bullshiting and stonewalling, and what is the real story. The preliminary PREP results are not the official results. The official results can only come in an "acta" or act signed by the elections officials in each polling place, who are chosen by lottery from the citizenry, much like, say, a jury pool. It is a crime to tamper with an "acta." No legal punishment exists for sending in a false PREP report. more...  6 Comments

Unfit to lead the world

Walter C. Uhler | Appropriately, much has been made of the recent survey conducted by Foreign Policy and the Center for American Progress, which found that 84 percent (of the more than 100) of America's top foreign policy experts believed that the United States is not winning the war on terror. Not only do they dispute President Bush's insular and politically self-serving assertion that America is winning that war, they also "see a national security apparatus in disrepair and a government that is failing to protect the public from the next attack."
