"Green My Apple"

Antrim Caskey | Thursday evening, Dec 14, about 50 Greenpeace activists and their supporters converged at the Fifth Avenue Apple store to bring awareness to their Green My Apple campaign. Activists used giant flashlights--equal to 16 million candles--to shine green light onto the pristine glass cube. Green My Apple is a campaign that urges Apple to step up and create a green recycling program for their products, Macs, iPods, iBooks.

They dismantle them for parts, and are exposed to a dangerous toxic cocktail that threatens their health and the environment," says a flyer handed out at the event. more...  4 Comments

Still Jews only

Jonathan Cook | This is the bottom line for a Jewish state, just as it was for a white apartheid South Africa: if we are to survive, then we must be able to do whatever it takes to keep ourselves in power, even if it means systematically violating the human rights of all those we rule over and who do not belong to our group.
