NASA Plans Moon Base to Control Pathway to Space

Tennessee, 16.12.2006 01:09

Summary: At a time when the U.S. faces historic debt, NASA announced last week its intention to establish a permanent base on the Moon by 2024. There has long been a military connection to NASA’s Moon missions. The NASA plan to establish permanent bases on the Moon will help the military “control and dominate” access on and off our planet Earth and determine who will extract valuable resources from the Moon in the years ahead. The taxpayers will be asked to pay the enormously expensive “research and development” costs of this program that in the end will profit the aerospace industry and those corporation like Bechtel that intend to build the bases and extract resources on the Moon.



Don’t believe NH Fish and Game’s public relations campaign, instead know the truth

New Hampshire, 16.12.2006 00:09

It is time to end hunter domination of NH Fish and Game Department and fund a true state wildlife agency that will put wildlife's needs first and that will fairly represent those who don't hunt, fish, or trap, since they too have an interest in wildlife and their habitats.

The A to Z Guide to Political Interference in Science

DC, 15.12.2006 16:09

The United States government bears great responsibility for keeping our environment clean and Americans healthy and safe. And while science is rarely the only factor in public policy decisions, this input should be objective and impartial. In recent years, however, scientists who work for and advise the federal government have seen their work manipulated, suppressed, distorted, while agencies have systematically limited public and policy maker access to critical scientific information. To document this abuse, the Union of Concerned Scientists has created the A to Z Guide to Political Interference in Science.

Councillor Talks Rubbish In Easton

Bristol, 15.12.2006 11:38

summary woodsy writes: Last Monday a public meeting was organised at Easton Community Centre to discuss problems with rubbish and recycling in Easton ... Jim Carpenter, Chair of ERN, introduced Cllr. Hopkins, who gave a brief presentation on the new waste management scheme and the reasons for its introduction. He mentioned the detrimental effect on the city's coffers of having to pay landfill tax for disposing of rubbish, stating that due to recycling, Bristol had since August saved £1.5 mn. in landfill tax and was now doing a nice trade in selling its unwanted landfill permits ... Bristol's recycling rate had gone from 12% to 39% of all waste in 12 months, but claimed the system introduced by the council was “designed to make it easier to recycle” ... Next came a brief contribution from Abdi and Kayse of The Somali Voice newspaper. They told us that Bristol's Somali population was now about 20,000 and that rates of recycling were very low, in the region of 1%, since the whole notion of recycling was completely novel to them ... The Bangladesh Womens' Group then voiced their concerns the main one of which was that Bangladeshi families are great lovers of home cooking and thus produce lots of food waste. Consequently, they found the brown food waste bins provided by the council far too small. Another concern was the increase in rats, flies and maggots ... Immediately after this came Liz Jones deputising for Asian Health and Social Care Services. She informed the meeting that South Asian families typically had between 5-7 residents per household and therefore produced abnormally high levels of waste and specific kinds of waste (e.g. large edible oil cans), which the recycling crews did not realise they were supposed to collect ... In response to these last 2 contributions, Gary Hopkins stated that extra brown bins could be supplied upon request, as could jumbo wheelie bins. There was an immediate riposte from the floor: “Where are we supposed to put all these extra bins then? There's no room on the pavements anyway?”. The councillor had no real response to this. He then moved onto the large empty oil cans. This prompted another interjection from the front row of the public: “Why don't you run your rubbish trucks on bio-diesel?” “Because of warranty issues”, came a reply from one of the council officers at the back. “Well change your suppliers”, came the riposte. A short and slightly heated dialogue of the deaf then ensued, proving that the 'not invented here' syndrome prevalent in the past in local authorities is still alive and well and living at the Counts Louse.

Homophobic hate crimes strike Ada, Oklahoma

Oklahoma, 15.12.2006 04:08

2 attacked in recent incidents . Within the last two hate crimes have occured in the Ada, Oklahoma area. In one case, a woman was held to the ground by two men who carved the word "LESBIAN" into her arm with a razer blade or a box knife. In another case, a woman was hit in the head, had her shirt removed, and then tied to a tree with the cut-up shirt, with the word "hell-bound" written on her stomach.

Despite being one of the most popular companion animals in the country, rabbits are among the most exploited. Domestic rabbits — cherished for their playful, gentle natures — are skinned for their fur, blinded to test cosmetics, bred for show, drugged in the name of science, clipped for wool products, pulled out of magicians' hats, killed in vivisection labs, sold as food for pet snakes, and raised and shipped by breeders motivated only by profit.



Nashville to Host 16th Annual Homeless Memorial

Tennessee, 15.12.2006 00:09

Every year the Nashville Homeless Power Project hosts a memorial for our brothers and sisters who have died while homeless. We are joined by hundreds of homeless people, council members, advocates, congregations and our other friends. While many have heard about the murder of homeless woman Tara Cole, there have been countless others who have died because their lack of housing exposed them to increased levels violence, exposure to hazardous weather conditions, and extreme illness. As of December 14, 2006, the Nashville Homeless Power Project has collected 35 names of people who have died while homeless. We expect that many more have died that the project has yet to learn about. In 2005, 30 names were collected.

Perforto kontraŭ inoj kelkfoje alprenas nesuspektitajn formojn, sed tre evidentajn en aliaj okazoj.

Sentencing Dates Set for “Eco-Sabotage” Defendants

Portland, 14.12.2006 21:38

Today, in the federal courthouse in Eugene, Oregon, Judge Ann Aiken set sentencing dates for ten individuals who earlier this year pled guilty to charges stemming from the FBI's "Operation Backfire" prosecutions. Despite the fact than none of the defendants in the case were ever charged with the crime of terrorism, federal prosecutors have announced that they will seek terrorism sentence enhancements of up to 20 years (It has never been alleged that any defendant injured another human or animal as a result of their politically motivated acts of sabotage.) Beyond additional time in federal prison, any terrorism enhancement would have potentially Draconian consequences for defendants upon release. Such a finding by the courts may prohibit them from being able to travel outside the U.S., open a bank account, or otherwise successfully reintegrate into society.

"The sentencing provision at issue, entitled 'Acts of Terrorism Transcending National Boundaries,' simply does not apply to the facts of this case and is a blatant attempt by the government to label citizens as terrorists for political gain and to manipulate and exploit Americans' concerns after 9/11 - which was a true act of terrorism," stated Lauren Regan, executive director of the Civil Liberties Defense Center. "In a case where only property damage occurs, and where citizens took illegal action to stop environmental destruction and animal suffering within the U.S., this federal law was not meant to apply and is unconstitutionally applied to these defendants."

The raids took place in Colorado, Nebraska, Texas, Utah, Iowa and Minnesota It marks the largest sweep of its kind ever against a single company. Local Spanish radio host, Antonio Medina, describes the immigration raid as aggressive and ugly. "I went to the plant to see what was happening, but because I'm Latino they immediately asked me for my papers," said Medina.

Pedro Alvarez, Roger, presos 4f, presos polítics...

Ja fa 14 anys que Pedro Álvarez va ser assassinat per un agent de policia, de la Brigada de Seguretat Ciutadana, per una discussió de trànsit, amb un tret mortal al cap. Als set dies va ser posat en llibertat i, de moment, el crim ha quedat impune i l´assassí continua en llibertat i encobert per totes les forces de seguretat de l´estat. Fa poc hem conegut la sentència per l'assassinat d'en Roger, amb l'escandalosa petició d'indult pel culpable, que no ha hagut de passar per la presó preventiva, cosa que sí continuen patint els presos del cas 4f, malgrat que en aquest cas no hi ha cap mort ni l'acusació se sosté. Així en tants altres casos. On és, doncs, la igualtat davant la llei?

Victory For Fairford Coach Campaigners

United Kingdom, 14.12.2006 10:09

Campaigners have won a massive legal battle after they proved that the police violated their rights to protest when around 120 peace protestors were prevented from reaching USAF/RAF Fairford on the 22nd of March 2003. Three coaches full of protestors were first stopped and searched, then forcibly returned to London under police escort. At the start of the war with Iraq, Fairford airbase in Gloucestershire (and the B-52 bomber planes that were flying from it) had become a focus for anti-war protest and direct action.

The High Court and Court of Appeal had already ruled that the police acted unlawfully in detaining protesters on the coaches. But on Wednesday 13th Dec, in a judgement that has implications beyond the Fairford case, Law Lords ruled that the police also violated the right to freedom of expression and lawful assembly.
