NAYABA ARINDE | Police claim that officers fired in self-defense as the car was driven towards them. It is disputed whether or not they identified themselves.

Joe Kay | Details have emerged of a US government program that collects information and creates a “risk profile” of all people entering and leaving the United States. The program, secretly in place since 2002, is part of much broader system of government spying and attacks on privacy rights.
jen | On November 29th protesters rallied outside of Representative James McGovern’s in protest of The Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA), which was signed into law on November 27th. Under the new law, animal rights activists face massive fines and jail time for being involved in nonviolent civil disobedience.

Pooh Johnson | On November 25th, five undercover NYPD officers, while not identifying themselves, surrounded the car of Sean Bell, Joseph Guzman, and Trent Benefield. They then proceeded to unload 50 bullets into the car, killing Sean Bell, and critically injuring his friends Joseph and Trent. The three were unarmed. Sean was going to be married the next day. This was not an accident, it was an execution. Instead of apologies, the NYPD has responded with a racist withchunt for a mythical "4th man". WE NEED TO FIGHT FOR JUSTICE!
David Roknich | Nancy Pelosi was much more diplomatic than I will be in opposition to Jane Harman's bid for the chair of the House Intelligence Committee. Here's a picture of Ms. Harman without the redeye of a cheap flashbulb photog: a professional shot that reveals her as a deer in the headlights of the Neocons, as she sings the praises of what a "great job our intelligence people are doing in spite of great obstacles". Obstacles like Stud Terkel's lawsuit against AT&T, for instance, for helping the NSA spy on you and your neighbors.

Cinema Libre Studios | Hollywood loves a good action film. “Blood Diamond,” set in Sierra Leone during the civil war in the 1990s, is already generating Oscar buzz. But the film, like most of the international media, fails to reveal the true reasons behind the decade long civil war. “The Empire In Africa,” hopes to set the record straight when it opens in theatres on December 8 in New York, Los Angeles and Madison, WI. more... 0 Comments

Emil Kuzmanov | The missing legal pet control is replaced by criminal collection and abuse of the great number of healthy animals. That leads to the real reduction of both increasing populations. The Ministry of Interior and Ministry of Finance stay tolerant to the illegal traffic and money laundering. Bulgarian institutions are colluding with black-marketers in their revolting industry.
