An open letter to Christians who vote

A Christian | Millions of American Christians have had enough of watching our faith being hijacked and warped for partisan political gain, and watching as "Christian" leaders annihilate Christ's message of love, compassion and peacemaking to replace it with a message of fear, arrogance, greed and warmongering. On November 7th, we'll reject the tactics of fear, hatred and deceit, and we'll vote Christ's values: love, compassion, gentleness, caring (including caring for gays and for women's medical privacy!), humility and peacemaking.

Carta de la señora Maigret a Pepe Montilla

Carlos Ortiz de Zárate | Animada por las nuevas participaciones en sus listas de debate en las que pretende denunciar la conspiración de los medios de comunicación para descconstruir el concepto de Estado Nación en las audiencias, el día siguiente a las elecciones autonómicas que se celebraron en Catalunya el pasado 1 de noviembre, la señora Maigret trata de explicar al candidato del PSC, Pepe Montilla, que pese a la exclusión con la que éste estigmatiza el método y la persona de la emisora de la carta, estos podrían ayudar al receptor para liberarse del recurso al eterno retorno de los conflicto del caso catalán, porque obligarían al mismo a plantearse alternativas a aquél.

Killed for the Truth, Paid for the Lies, and Impunity for the Murderers

Joshua Breitbart |

Here are two small but important details about Brad’s death:

He was wearing an Indymedia t-shirt when he was shot. One bullet must have gone right through the (((i)). Maybe that shouldn’t matter to me but it does. I have that t-shirt, as do many people I love.

Second, Brad lived for nearly an hour after he was shot. The initial photos made it seem like he died on the spot. Other reports suggest he died minutes later on the way to a hospital. In fact, protesters carried his body for a long distance, drove a car until it ran out of gas, unsuccessfully tried to wave down a couple of trucks – it started to rain – and then, about five blocks from the Red Cross station, he died. I don’t know if this should matter either, but it does.

Solidarity in Flames (aka, "Where's AMLO??)

La Journada, Trans. Narco News | The entire structure of political organizations and institutionalized labor unions are, in spite of their differences, leaving Oaxaca in solitude during these crucial moments. No great social mobilizations have sprung up, like the ones that were started to stop the war against zapatismo in 1994, not like the mobilizations that arose against the Acteal massacre. The electoral routine, that is, the logic of the existing institutions, has taken over every social mobilization. There are a few declarations and a few protests, but no great mobilization of forces like the one organized in the electoral dispute. more...  0 Comments

Camera his weapon vs. injustice, Daily News Column

by Juan Gonzalez | Camera his weapon vs. injustice

When the bullets started to fly, New York photojournalist Bradley Will was clutching a camera, doing what he loved most - filming a group of downtrodden people fighting for respect in some forgotten corner of our world.
This was last Friday, on a narrow street on the outskirts of Oaxaca, Mexico, where Will, 36, a longtime member of New York's radical IndyMedia Center, had gone in early October to document an amazing story.

It is one our own national media somehow managed to ignore for five long months.
