PAHAYAG NG PESANTE-USA SA PLANONG PAGPAPALAYA KAY ROLITO GO

Pesante-USA | -Saksakan ng kawalang walang budhi at sadyang maiitim ang buto.

Kung mailalarawan lamang ng mga salitang ito ang mga kagagawan ng rehimeng Arroyo, marahil sasapat na sabihin kung gaano kasama ang ginagawa ng rehimen sa mga mamamayan nito. Baka parang asin na natunaw na sila kung sila ay may kahihiyan.

Sukdulan na ang pagiging walanghiya ang rehimen. Matapos bigyan ng patawad ang mga nagkasalang kriminal tulad nina Manero, Martinez , Claudio Teehanke Jr. na walang awang pumatay ng dalawang kabataan noong 1991. At ngayon naman plano diumano ng rehimeng Arroyo na palayain si Rolito Go.

Kami ay nakikiisa sa pamilya Maguan katulad ng pakikiisa namin sa pamilya Hultman sa Sweden at sa lahat ng Pilipino sa labas ng bansa lalo sa Sweden upang tutulan at batikusin ang lantrang palalong asal ng Pangulong Arroyo na nagpalaya kay Claudio Teehankee Jr at planong pagpapalaya kay Go. . more...  1 Comments

Economic Fascism and The United States

Kenn Spacefield | If I do not believe in, trust, or support the US Federal Government, my home should not be in jeopardy. The Federal Government, whenever they choose, through the IRS, will take your home if you do not support them. This confiscation of property by the Federal Government is absolutely and unequivocally wrong, and it is illegal.

For the Federal Government to threaten me with stealing my home because I want them to fail, is economic FASCISM.

Iraq Vets Against the War Send Letter to Schieffer, Plan Protest at Hofstra Univ. Debate

NYC IMC/IVAW | Iraq Veterans Against the War is asking supporters to assemble "starting
2:30 pm" at Hempstead LIRR station, which means getting on either the 1:37
PM train from NY Penn Station (41st & 8th) OR the 1:37 PM train from the
Flatbush LIRR station at the Atlantic-Pacific subway stop (#2, 3, 4, 5, B, Q to
Atlantic or N, R, M to Pacific). Most other trains to Hempstead take between 51
and 60 minutes from either station.

There will still be greeters at Hempstead station well after that time .

From Matthis Chiroux...

Dear Mr Schieffer,

I'm writing you today as a member of Iraq Veterans Against the War to make
clear the details of a demonstration we will be leading Oct. 15th at Hofstra
University prior to the final presidential debate and what our demands are and
will be.

We in IVAW demand that two of our members, myself and Kristofer Goldsmith, be
permitted entry to the debate and be allowed to ask each candidate one question.
If this demand is not agreed to IN FULL by 7 p.m. EST on the 15th, members of
IVAW will lead a large contingent of veterans and our supporters on a
NON-VIOLENT procession to the debate center and are prepared to risk arrest
and/or bodily harm attempting to enter to have our voices heard. (This action
will look very similar to our marches at the DNC and RNC which were widely
covered in the media and on youtube, should you wish to see what's coming.)

As the economy has continued its downhill slide this election season, the issue
of Iraq has been pushed further and further away from peoples' minds, as
well the platforms of the candidates. In addition, little to no attention has
been paid this election season to the abysmal failure of the Veterans
Administration to adequately care for our returning troops and their families
and how we can work as a nation to fix this problem.

As a result, more and more veterans are falling into debt, starving, going
homeless and killing themselves while the government REFUSES to allocate
sufficient funds for our much needed and deserved care while simultaneously
lining the pockets of the richest with $700 billion in taxpayer (including
servicemembers and veterans) money.

Such blatant betrayals of our services and sacrifices cannot go unaddressed by
IVAW, thus we will have our voices heard on the issues one way or the other, be
it from inside the debate hall, or be it to a hoard of domestic and
international press outside the event who have already expressed great interest
in and dedication to covering our demonstration.

What yourself and the candidates must decide now, Mr. Schieffer, is what the
legacy of this debate will be. Will this be remembered as an event where both
sides of the isle and the media came together to hear from our nation's
heroes, even if only for five minutes, or will the words and promises of both
candidates be forever shrouded in the image of a host of uniformed veterans and
their supporters going to jail because these campaigns cared too little to hear
from them?

Again, we are dedicated to 100% non-violence during this demonstration and will
resist no arrest. However, we will NOT, I repeat, we will NOT back down, be intimidated or moved in any way shape or form until our demands are met or we
are arrested.

I am attaching a press release we have been distributing for our action world
wide. Should you have any questions or wish to arrange entrance ahead of time
for our two members, contact me at*******.

I thank you for your time, sir, and look forward to meeting you in person.

For honor and
country,

Matthis Chiroux

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. -- Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) will lead non-violent
demonstrations at Hofstra University prior to the final presidential debate Oct.
15 to demand two IVAW members be allowed to ask each candidate one question.

Should IVAW's demands not be met in full by 7 p.m., members of the
organization are willing to risk arrest by entering the debate to have their
voices heard by the candidates.

IVAW intends to "force the issue" that servicemembers and veterans
are not being heard or cared for by our leaders. The next president should make
caring for our wounded military a top domestic priority, in addition to ending
the war in Iraq.

"Right now there are veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan going homeless,
hungry, into debt and contemplating suicide," said Matthis Chiroux, an IVAW
member from Brooklyn. "But the government says we don't have the money
to
care for those war heroes, so the V.A. continues its mission underfunded and
understaffed. But now we've found almost a trillion to bail out banks?
Where's the humanity in this?"

IVAW is currently working to contact debate moderator Bob Schieffer to make its
demands known.

"I watched the first debate the other night, for which the topic was
supposed to be 'foreign policy', yet it took 34 minutes before the words
'Iraq' or 'Veteran' left either candidates' mouths,"
said Kris Goldsmith, an IVAW member from Long Island. "I'm not
convinced that either Obama or McCain care about what is most important to
today's military and veterans. IVAW is committed to changing that."

Participants should begin assembling at the Hempstead Long Island Railroad
station at 2:30 p.m. At five, we will "walk" to Hempstead University
for further demonstrations.

IVAW was founded by Iraq war veterans in July 2004 to allow
servicemen and
women from all branches of the military a chance to come together and speak out
against an unjust, unwinnable and illegal occupation. Today, IVAW has over 1,300
members in 49 states, Washington, D.C. and Canada, and on military bases in the
U.S. and overseas, including Iraq.

Fall of the House of Capital?

Mumia Abu-Jamal | Instead, we're in a situation where a scam artist sets up shop in a street-corner, playing a fraudulent 3-card monty hustle, and along comes a cop. The cop, instead of rousting the scam artist, rifles the pockets of every passerby, and delivers the stolen loot to the scammer.

The scam artist, of course, is the financial investment houses; the cop, of course, is Congress -- and you are the passerby, hustled and robbed by both of them. more...  0 Comments

Mumia Abu-Jamal Faces US Supreme Court as New Book and Film Expose Injustice

Hans Bennett | With the court's PCRA rejection, Abu-Jamal's upcoming appeal to the US Supreme Court of the Third Circuit decision (the filing of this appeal is due by Oct. 20 unless a 60 day extension is requested) is now more important than ever, because this is now his last chance for a new guilt-phase trial. Fortunately, this crucial moment for Abu-Jamal coincides with two new media projects that expose injustice in his case that extends well beyond the narrow issues being considered by the courts: the British film In Prison My Whole Life and the book The Framing of Mumia Abu-Jamal, by J. Patrick O'Connor. more...  0 Comments
