OnNYTurf: RNC Mass Arrests by NYPD Could Cost NYC Taxpayers Millions

OnNYTurf | Last week a court ruled that the NYPD has admitted it has no evidence for arresting 23 out of 24 people in a mass roundup during the RNC. This ruling is a likely forecast of things to come in thousands of RNC false arrest lawsuits the city is facing for NYPD mass arrests made during the Republican National Convention period in NYC in 2004. The NYPD admission is hugely significant in that it basically means the NYPD had no grounds for having arrested and detained 23 out of 24 plaintiffs in these cases. [Read More] more...  0 Comments

Campaigns for Freedom: Adama Bah and Dame Dieng

compiled by nyc imcista | Help for Adama: Some of you have already heard the story of Adama Bah. For those of you who haven't, Adama - a Muslim teenager and former student of mine at the Harlem Children's Zone - was detained by the FBI in March of 2005. Without any explanation they accused her of being an "imminent threat" and appeared ready to hold her indefinitely. After a widespread public protest, however, the government agreed to release her. Without going into a detailed history of the case, I believe she has been unfairly targeted and in the process has seen her family split apart.

Campaign to free Dame Dieng: Dame Dieng is 21 and has been arrested without any valid explanation, the Senegalese police invented the same old insult and threat known for centuries stuff when they invaded the political opponent, Idrissa Seck, headquarters where Dame Dieng happened to be, he had been recruited by this contradictor to the authoritarian Wade regime after having worked for a newspaper’s website and proved there his incredible gifts for computer matters more...  0 Comments

WORLD AIDS DAY: Naming Our Dead Out Loud

Housing Works |

WAD woman reading night.jpg

In the very first, dark minutes of World AIDS Day, we began reciting the long list of New Yorkers who have died because of the failure to adequately address the AIDS crisis.

In the 25 horrible years of the AIDS pandemic, heroes have successfully spoken out, sought answers and demanded solutions. Despite this, more than 80,000 New Yorkers have died.

City Hall loomed behind the still and solemn group of fifty, and midnight taxi traffic was the only noise. The names were announced like accusations and questions. Some names drew murmurs of recognition. A last name repeated many times created the unavoidable image of a whole family gone.

For 12 years, Housing Works has gathered with the New York AIDS community in City Hall Park on this day to name our dead out loud.

Please join us for some time today in City Hall Park at the corner of Broadway and Park Place. Whenever you arrive, there will be still more names to read.

Every hour until midnight comes again tonight, a member of this community will read the following statement:

We gather to read the names of our dead. We read their names to honor their memory. We read their names to remind ourselves of their worth as individuals and of the sheer numbers of people we have lost.

We read their names to tell the Mayor of our City, the Governor of our State, and the President of our Country, that people with AIDS are still dying and are still in need of real leadership that can bring this epidemic to an end once and for all.

We are within reach of this goal. And we stand before the world with new knowledge, new hope, and new dedication.

For the leaders of this world - after decades of neglect - have mapped out a route for all people that can actually end AIDS.

At the United Nations, women and men from every country pledged their support for universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support by 2010. What does this mean?

  • We know how to prevent HIV.
  • We have the medications that can dramatically reduce deaths from AIDS.
  • We know what it takes to help people living with HIV maintain good health: health care workers, support services, housing, food, treatment for chemical dependency and mental illness, and full human rights for people living with HIV/AIDS.
  • We support science that will lead to new breakthroughs in prevention, treatment, and someday a vaccine.
  • Universal access means we can end AIDS as a killer pandemic in the next three years - if we make these basic things available to everyone in the world living with or at risk for HIV/AIDS.


We need to do that for our brothers and sisters who are still dying in South Africa. We need to do that for our brothers and sisters who are still dying in South Carolina. We need to do that for the South End of Albany, on the South Side of Chicago and for everyone in the South Bronx.

Why The Pope Is a Dope

A.K. Gupta | While the corporate media continue to deny that the Pope attacked Islam in his speech two months, even a cursory reading shows that he was launching an unambiguous attack on Islam. He may be trying to make nice in Turkey now, but his speech was aimed at showing that Islam was a rejection of Christianity. Additionally, few have noticed that Benedict was arguing for the superiority of Europe as God's chosen domain. more...  7 Comments
