German Arrest Warrants, 13 CIAs:Bird,Bryson,Deckard,Fain,Fairing,Franklin,Grady,

Ralph Morris | The arrest warrant issued in Germany today for 13 CIA employees has not been made public, but here are the names that will appear on it anyway. Most if not all are aliases, although the first names of the three pilots probably are correct.

The warrants are for the kidnaping and torture by U.S. Government agents of Khalid el-Masri. El-Masri was on vacation in Macedonia when he was kidnapped and transported to a CIA-run "black site" in Afghanistan. After several months of confinement in squalid conditions, he was abandoned on a hill in Albania with no explanation. He was never charged with a crime.

OPEN CALL: How can Indymedia improve discussions and coverage?

hey all | It's been a while since I saw a discussion here about the quality of coverage and the typcially nasty comments that plague this open-publishing. We need Indymedia for what it can do at its best (Think F15, The Indypendent, the RNC). But for too long, the wire has been dominated by cranks despite the best efforts of the site's administrators. So what is to be done with Indymedia? How can NYC Indymedia improve this situation. more...  51 Comments

NYC’s immigrant food warehouse workers unionize w/IWW

Not Without a Fight: NYC’s food warehouse workers unionize

by Diane Krauthamer and David Graeber

For every restaurant and every shop in New York there is a backbone — the workers who make sure ingredients reach those restaurants and their staff. No one is supposed to think about them. Certainly not the
diners. But they exist, because they have to: behind the closed doors of dank and often filthy wholesale and distribution warehouses in Brooklyn and Queens’ industrial areas, suffering under sweatshop-like
conditions, pulling shifts that begin before dawn and end well after dusk. Owners regularly take advantage of these immigrant workers' lack of familiarity with United States labor laws by pushing the envelope of exploitation, refusing overtime and paying far less than minimum wage. more...  4 Comments
