Assemble for Rights NYC - Protect the First Amendment

Glenn | Did you know that the New York City Police Department plans to put new severe restrictions on sidewalk and street use? Possibly as soon as August 24th?

Under the guise of protecting the public safety, the New York City Police Department plans to expand its control over protest activity by labeling many common street and side walk uses as a "parade". If put into effect, these new rules will greatly suppress the right to assembly and expose peaceful protestors as well as regular people to arrest for things as simple as crossing the street against the light. This matter is urgent. We implore all NYers to attend an important public hearing on August 23rd and contact their elected officials right away and tell them to stop the police from creating these rules. Details about the August 23rd event and how to contact your elected officials are in the side menu on the right.

Solution to the lying NYC lying cop problem

Peter Graves-Goodman | NYC police are arresting (harassing) partybikers for bogus warrants so they can confiscate their bikes, according to Wendy Scher in her August 2nd article “ Fighting for the Right to Partybike.” She says, “Most of the time that they take our bikes is when they arrest the driver. Typically, something one of us does irritates a cop, so he pulls over the driver, checks for ID, tells the riders to leave, and proceeds with the ticketing process. After a bit of conferring with the other cops, he comes back and says the driver has an open warrant, and thus is under arrest. Sometimes this is from previous (bogus) tickets, but often the driver actually has no warrant at all!” more...  1 Comments

Democratic Party leaders rally behind pro-war Senator Lieberman

Patrick Martin | Three-term US Senator Joseph Lieberman, the Democratic vice-presidential candidate in 2000 and a candidate for the party’s presidential nomination in 2004, is trailing in his bid for renomination in the August 8 Democratic primary in Connecticut. A poll published July 20 showed a four-point lead for Lieberman’s challenger, multi-millionaire businessman Ned Lamont, whose campaign is fueled mainly by anger over the war in Iraq.
Lieberman is notorious not only as an adamant supporter of the war in Iraq, but as an ally of the Bush administration in its incessant efforts to smear opponents of the war as unpatriotic or endorsing appeasement of terrorists. He became a potent symbol of the collaboration of the congressional Democrats with the Republican administration, particularly after Bush planted a kiss on Lieberman’s cheek as he entered the Capitol in January 2005 to deliver his State of the Union speech. more...  1 Comments

Why Lebanon? Think OIL, water, pipelines, and profits.

4peace | Why a war on Lebanon? Why now? A new article by Professor Michel Chossudovsky suggests it's about oil, water and pipeline routes, and offers insight into the war's impending expansion. The U.S. and Israel aren't the only nations with interests in this game. Other players appear to include the U.K., France, and Italy.
