First organized resistance to unconstitutional New York City subway searches

sterling brooks | A flying squad of lower Manhattan activists is attempting to locate where the New York City police are performing random subway searches, reach the stations while the operation is still underway, and advise subway riders that the recently-initiated searches are in violation of their Fourth Amendment right to be "secure against unwarranted searches and seizures of their persons ... and effects", and that the riders are within their rights to refuse.
Everyone who witnesses or undergoes a search is requested to forward all details to more...  0 Comments

Mother Of Dead US Soldier Protests Bush: Says Emperor has No Clothes: Is Threat

America's Mom' | America's Mom'

A woman called Cindy Sheehan whose son was killed in Iraq is galvanising anti-war opinion in the USA to an arguably greater extent than any previous anti-war protests. She is camped at the side of the road with a small (growing) number of accomplices at Bush's ranch in Crawford (Waco) Texas for the last couple of days and is demanding Bush meet her and explain a few things to her.

What have we done?

Repost from jamie | As the blood of US soldiers continues to drain into the hot sands of Iraq over the last several days with at least 27 US soldiers killed and the approval rating for his handling of the debacle in Iraq dropping to an all-time low of 38%, Mr. Bush commented from the comforts of his ranch in Crawford, Texas today, “We will stay the course, we will complete the job in Iraq.”
Just a two hour drive away in Dallas, at the Veterans for Peace National Convention in Dallas, I’m sitting with a roomful of veterans from the current quagmire.
When asked what he would say to Mr. Bush if he had the chance to speak to him, Abdul Henderson, a corporal in the Marines who served in Iraq from March until May, 2003, took a deep breath and said, “It would be two hits-me hitting him and him hitting the floor. I see this guy in the most prestigious office in the world, and this guy says ‘bring it on.’ A guy who ain’t never been shot at, never seen anyone suffering, saying ‘bring it on?’ He gets to act like a cowboy in a western movie…it’s sickening to me.” more...  0 Comments

Desparately Seeking Democrats:

Roy Rollin | Two years ago millions of people across the US took to the streets in an unprecedented show of opposition to the impending attack on Iraq. Little less than a year later, with the tall tales that the Bush administration used to justify its war, ie, “WMDs” and “Links to Al Queda,” unraveling faster than a roll of toilet paper, the Abu Ghraib torture scandal exploded the lie about going to war to put "Saddam's torture chambers" out of business as well. Yet at the very moment when everything that anti-war activists had said about the war had been proven correct, the anti-war movement was nowhere to been seen or heard from. Had all those who had marched and protested given up and made their peace with the administration and its occupation of Iraq? more...  0 Comments
