No yellow ribbons from this ex-marine

populist | We can and should support troops-to-be, but do so before they become troops. We should post a warning sign, and disclaimer, in all recruiting stations. Prospective enlistees should be told that their new employer will not be the Department of Defense, but the Department of War; and that their service will not be in the defense of freedom and democracy, but in the building of an empire for America's powerful elite. And that their countrymen, for all the yellow ribbons and pseudo-patriotic talk, will ultimately blame them for the added terrorism they instigate with their wars. Just like there is truth in lending, we should demand truth in recruitment. more...  0 Comments

Theologica Evangelica

finch | A news report on April 3, stated that U.S. Evangelicals, numbering approximately thirty five million, are considering withdrawing their support from the Bush government; the failure in Iraq was cited as the principal reason. It seems incredible that thirty five million people deliberated over a previous decision to support Bush only to arrive at a diametrically opposite view today. In any religious organisation it is the few who decide for the many, a handful of people are making all the policy decisions and exercising a degree of influence as a result. Their power stems from the fact that the congregation conforms and does as it is directed. more...  0 Comments

Various | "His trademark aggressiveness helped trigger his downfall, when he led a drive to redraw Texas' congressional district boundaries to increase the number of seats in GOP hands."

The gambit succeeded, but DeLay was soon caught up in an investigation involving the use of corporate funds in the campaigns of legislators who had participated in the redistricting."

4 Film Screenings - Cities, Labor, and Culture: Present Crises, Past Documents

CAMEL collaborative | The film and discussion series is an attempt to connect past and present struggles of the labor movement and community organizing, as a way of considering what has changed, what is still the same, and more importantly, what can we learn in terms of past successes or failures—especially questions of how we organize, how we negotiate issues of race, class, gender, different labor sectors, changes in the labor market or housing/urban development issues. The film series is about trying to remember those struggles, and hopefully, to bridge different generations of activists, and allow for discussions between labor and social justice movements and arts communities. more...  0 Comments

Help Free Marty Tankleff

body- by martytankleff.org (intro-by S. Meyer | On March 17, 2006, his motion for a retrial was denied by a Suffolk County criminal justice system notorious for
law enforcement and prosecutorial misconduct. Though a parade of credible witnesses, including the gunman's son,
testified on Marty's behalf; though there was no physical evidence tying him to the crime; though there is DNA evidence that the court refuses to test; and though articles in the New York Times and Newsday supported the call for a new trial, Marty remains a victim of Suffolk County injustice. He needs your help. more...  2 Comments
