Big Brother's Big Business

Jessica Bennett | Bill Brown, a kind of amateur surveillance-camera spotter, estimates the total number of cameras in New York City to exceed 15,000—a figure city officials say they have no way to verify because they lack a system of registry. But Brown, 46, who works as a proofreader, has studied the city's surveillance systems for years. On any given Sunday, you can find him leading tours through the maze of city streets that he describes as New York's "open museum" of surveillance. A member of a performance troop called the Surveillance Camera Players, he has also spent countless hours mapping—by hand—the city's growing camera population. On a recent trip to Manhattan's Times Square, Brown was able to point out, from a single street corner, more than 25 cameras visible to the naked eye. "People are in favor of surveillance when it's presented as a generality," says Brown. "But if you get them to look at specific cameras, then they begin to disapprove." more...  0 Comments

Storming the Bastille and Direct Action

nano | It should now be apparent to all that the usual strategies have proven ineffective against the ultra-right of today. The reasons are clear; the right is playing hard, fast and bold while the opposition is lost in analysis and navel gazing. ‘Storming the Bastille’ may again be required to precipitate change. Demos, alternative media, various forms of dissenting propaganda have all failed to alter the course of events. It would seem that while one side is playing hardball (for keeps) the other is content to fossick on the shores of world-shaping politics. more...  0 Comments

Dear Liberal, Take Action Against the War

an | What is the sane and responsible reaction to an insane and irresponsible system? When the lives of Iraqi’s are being ripped to pieces in the name of “democracy” and “freedom”, when citizens instead of governments become targets for the hatred of the exploited, when the interests of the privileged take absolute precedence over the interests of the rest of us, what is the sane and logical response to this blatant disregard for our individual desires of safety and security? more...  2 Comments

one of daniel's many friends | One of the projects we are starting is long-term and consistent
outreach about Daniel's case in New York City, around the country and

City hear the message about what is going on with this case, about

make a difference.

Yugoslav leader exposed U.S. war crimes in Balkans

John Catalinotto | From the day he was kidnapped from a Belgrade prison to Scheveningen in The Hague and placed under NATO imprisonment, he carried out, under horribly unequal conditions, a heroic legal and political battle against the people who ordered him there. Like his fellow Balkans political prisoner of the 1930s, Bulgarian Communist Georgi Dmitrov, who successfully defended himself against bogus Nazi charges that he burned the Reichstag, Milosevic waged his own legal defense in the bogus NATO court.

Milosevic turned the tables on the court and showed that Bill Clinton, Tony Blair, Gerhard Schroeder, Gen. Wesley Clark and the rest of the NATO heads of state and government and their generals were the real “butchers of the Balkans” and the ones who deserved to be on trial for war crimes. more...  6 Comments

Iraqi people, U.S. troops: Both want end to occupation

LeiLani Dowell | Perhaps the most insightful poll was released on Jan. 31 by the Program on International Policy Attitudes. Entitled “What the Iraqi Public Wants,” the poll divided the Iraqi population into Kurds, Shia and Sunnis, and shows that 80 percent of all Iraqis polled believe that the “U.S. government plans to have permanent military bases in Iraq.” Seventy-six percent believed that the U.S. would refuse “if the new Iraqi government were to tell the U.S. to withdraw all of its forces within six months.” Eighty-seven percent would approve the government’s endorsing a timeline for U.S. withdrawal, as opposed to only reducing the forces “as the security situation improves.” Almost half of those polled—47 percent—said they approve of attacks on U.S.-led forces in Iraq. more...  0 Comments
