Big Easy | The contrast between the promised help and the real suspicion is what gives Desert Bayou its initial drama. Numbed evacuees step on dry ground - and their bags are immediately searched. They are taken to Utah’s Camp Williams military base to live inside gates and under a curfew. Tight-faced residents explain that the measures are for the evacuees’ own good, but under their words runs an electric current of fear. more... 0 Comments

Time's Up! | MEMORIAL TO BE HELD FOR PEDESTRIAN HOPE MILLER, KILLED BY A CAR ON DEADLY HOUSTON STREET
Nick Turse | Since then, the city's security forces have eagerly embraced an Escape From New York-aesthetic -- an urge to turn Manhattan into a walled-in fortress island under high-tech government surveillance, guarded by heavily armed security forces, with helicopters perpetually overhead. Beginning in Harlem in 2006, near the site of two new luxury condos, the NYPD set up a moveable "two-story booth tower, called Sky Watch," that gave an "officer sitting inside a better vantage point from which to monitor the area." The Panopticon-like structure -- originally used by hunters to shoot quarry from overhead and now also utilized by the Department of Homeland Security along the Mexican border -- was outfitted with black-tinted windows, a spotlight, sensors, and four to five cameras. Now, five Sky Watch towers are in service, rotating in and out of various neighborhoods. more... 11 Comments
Alex Kane | In response to the recent military crackdown in Burma, around a hundred people rallied outside of the United Nations, chanting “Free, Free Burma” and “UN Security Council Take Action Now”. The initial protest of two hundred people started at 12 PM in front of the Burmese Mission to the UN, and was then moved to right outside the United Nations on 47th and 1st Avenue. The latter part of the protest lasted till about 6 PM. Given that the protest was for the whole day, snacks and water were on hand for the demonstrators. A lot of people dressed in red, showing solidarity for the Burmese monks who are being violently repressed for protesting the rise in Burmese fuel prices. The majority of the crowd was filled with Burmese exiles and exiled Burmese monks, as well as students and activists. more... 7 Comments

Mumia Abu-Jamal | From San Francisco, to Brooklyn: from Philadelphia, to Buffalo; in cities on both coasts and in places in between, we are seeing the loss of homes by working families, many of whom have been duped into acquiring, not homes, but the sub prime loans that made home-buying possible.
