+ | On December 6, 2006, the Democrats and Republicans in the House of Representatives put it on the record that they are one party in supporting the murder of Mumia Abu-Jamal by voting 368 to 31 to condemn the decision of St. Denis, France to name a street after Mumia Abu-Jamal. This is clearly a political frame-up of national and international stature as the murderer, Arnold Beverly, has confessed to killing Officer Faulkner, a whistleblower of police corruption on the Philadelphia police force 25 years ago, December 9, 1981. more... 0 Comments

absinthe | Medea Benjamin, Cindy Sheehan, Patty Ackerman and Missy Beattie have been in court all week stemming from their arrests outside the U.S. Mission to the U.N. last March on International Women’s Day.

Here's an article about it when the trial started: http://www.commondreams.org/headlines06/1206-03.htm more... 0 Comments
Partisan Defense Committee | The Partisan Defense Committee denounces the U.S. House of Representatives’ vote on December 6 which attacked the Parisian suburb of Saint-Denis for naming a street in honor of death row political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal. The resolution, which passed 368 to 31 with support from both Republicans and Democrats, repeats the prosecution’s frame-up lies against Mumia. This resolution seeks to pave the way for the legal lynching of an innocent man! more... 0 Comments

Augusto César Revoredo. | Brazilian entrepreneurs, workers and unemployeds, we need workmanships, projects and initiatives that multiply chances, wages, jobs and businesses, and this will not happen in desirable speed while the Union to spend, as in the year of 2006, 490 billion Reals (U.S.$ 220.000.000.000, 00) with a presumpted financing of the internal debt next to bankers, that not only is unnecessary (as the proper numbers demonstrate), as it drains all the capacity of investment of the Brazilian society.
