Rice Questioned on Pre-9/11 Statements that Iraq Had Not Rearmed

DC, 03.03.2007 03:39

Outside the Capitol Hill studios of Fox News, Sam Husseini asked Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice about claims she made — as National Security Advisor with then Secretary of State Colin Powell in 2001 — that Saddam Hussein’s “military forces have not been rebuilt.”

Impeachment in Olympia

Portland, 03.03.2007 01:39

Over 300 people lined the stairs to Washington's Capitol in Olympia today and then filled three rooms for the hearing on SMJ 8016. Another memorial calling on Congress to reject the troop surge (SMJ 8003) was also heard. It was an excellent pairing, since the war in Iraq was premised on the deceptions perpetrated by Bush/Cheney. Those deliberate deceptions are one of the major impeachable offenses. photos from impeachment rally

Contact FDA to Stop Sale of Dangerous Cloned Milk &amp; Meat! during public comment period

Portland, 03.03.2007 00:41

Why Cloned Food Should Be Inedible and Unacceptable: The mission of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is to protect the public's health through assuring the safety of our nation's food supply. The FDA's purpose is NOT to facilitate the dumping of dubious food products onto people's dinner plates for the sake of corporate profit.

FDA first unveiled the commercially motivated lie of "substantial equivalance" back in 1993 when it railroaded through approval of recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH). Now we know from a real scientific study (May 2006 Journal of Reproductive Health) that milk induced through genetic engineering is NOT the same...but, because of FDA's irresponsible rubberstamping, U.S. consumers now suffer reproductive problems from...rBGH dairy products with elevated levels of Insulin Like Growth Factor - 1 (IGF-1).

That is why it is so disturbing to hear about the FDA's Dec. 28, 2006 determination that cloned livestock byproducts are indeed safe for human consumption, and to read a subsequent wave of editorials clamoring for fullblown commercialization of cloned milk and meat. Once again , it seems the FDA is over eager to become an accomplice in the corporate forcefeeding of questionable byproducts to an unwitting populace. Whether it is genetic engineering, biopharming, nanotechnology, irradiation, or cloning, it is hard to escape the thought that U.S farmers and consumers are now guinea pigs caught up in some massive frankenfood experiment that the rest of the world is wise enough to watch from a safe distance. Deadline for public feedback: April 2nd, 2007. Refer to Docket 2006P-0145.

Help support people who will be asking Sen. Smith to defund the Iraq war!

Portland, 02.03.2007 22:39

For Immediate Release: March 2, 2007
What will happen today when people want to talk to Senator Smith? Two constituents will try to go to his office to talk with the Senator or his staff about why he should vote to not approve funds to continue the Iraq war. Will they be denied access to his office? Will they be arrested? If the past is an indication, they will suffer the same fate as five other groups and end up going to jail.

Whereas Senator Smith said, "I, for one, am at the end of my rope when it comes to supporting a policy that has our soldiers patrolling the same streets in the same way, being blown up by the same bombs day after day. That is absurd. It may even be criminal. I cannot support that anymore", we are asking Senator Gordon Smith to agree to defund the Iraq war. We are simply asking him to walk his talk. It is anticipated that people will be stopped at the elevators in the lobby and be arrested there. If they are able to go to his office, they will ask him to vote in a consistent manner with his statements about the absurdity of the Iraq war. If he will not agree to do so they will refuse to leave until they have that assurance.

Audio from and earlier press conference to Defund the War at Gordon Smiths office.

Comment: Kudos to these people who are so persistant and seem to never give up! They inspire us all! (Saturday, March 3, 12 noon to 1 pm, Oak Grove Peace Vigil

Video: The Invasion of Nablus

NYC, 02.03.2007 18:09

The IOF focused especially on the Yasmine and Qariyon neighborhoods in the old city. During the first day of the operation, tens of thousands of people were confined to their homes. The Israeli army raided dozens of houses, detaining and arresting scores of people. This military operation is one of the biggest of its kind in the last two or three years that happenend in Nablus.

Here are the links to short video clips done by indypendent media activists in Nablus. This short film is produced by the Research Journalism Initiative (RJI) and the anarchist film collective "a-films". We're trying to keep up with the current happenings as far as the circumstances allow us to do so.

Campagna anti SUV: freniamo l'ipermotorizzazione contemporanea!

Switzerland, 02.03.2007 16:07

Si chiamano SUV, ovvero Sport Utility Vehicles, meglio noti come "i gipponi". Sono le fuoristrada da città, veicoli sovradimensionati (originariamente pensati per scopi bellici) che consumano quantità impressionanti di carburante e che mettono a repentaglio la vita di chi sceglie la mobilità lenta (soprattutto pedoni e ciclisti) in particolare a causa delle pericolose bull-bar. Ma che senso hanno questi emblemi dell'ipermotorizzazione contemporanea?

Il 27 febbraio è stata lanciata dai giovani verdi, un'iniziativa che vuole obbligare la Confederazione ad operarsi per una mobilità più sicura e con un minor impatto ambientale.

Eviction of Danish social centre fuels anger across Europe

United Kingdom, 02.03.2007 12:08

The occupied house in Copenhagen, Denmark named 'Ungdomshuset' has functioned as a very important political and social cultural centre since 1982. It had been involved in a long political and legal battle for its existance. But yesterday morning at around 7am Danish police made an end to this by entering the roof of the building using a helicopter and start an unannouced full scale eviction. Riot-police sealed off nearby streets quickly and attacked the building using teargas. As the whole area was closed off, so documenting the action and police-behaviour was difficult. Some witnesses say that teargas and police violence was plentiful, although the eviction happened swiftly and according to police in a ‘relatively calm manner’.

At the moment everything is but calm. Over 1000 people are reported to be back onto the streets last night and (burning) barricades blocked off some major roads in the city. Over 160 people have been reported to have been arrested, including 17 of non-danish nationality. Some people have been admitted to hospital. Riots have continued throughout the day and night and solidarity actions spontaniosly broke out in cities across europe: Berlin (300+), Köln, Hamburg (700+), München, Karlsruhe, Göttingen, Frankfurt, Bremen (300+), Magdeburg, Hannover, Vienna, Heidelberg, Gothenburg, Oslo, Helsinki, Stockholm (100+), Flensburg, Göttingen, Marburg, Potsdam and Leipzig. Over the next few days many more demonstrations and actions are planned and Danish activists have called for people to make Saturday 3rd March an international day of action.

An action has been annouced to take place at the Danish Embassy in London on Friday 2nd March.

No Justice - No Peace! It's time for action

Aotearoa, 02.03.2007 10:13

The rapists Rickards, Schollum and Shipton were found 'not guilty' on Thursday and it is now official: Shipton and Schollum are convicted rapists. And just tonight another womyn has come forward who was forced to perform oral sex on Brad Shipton in 1995. "The legal system does not deliver justice for women, but more than that - this should never have happened in the first place. Many people knew that these cops were abusive, and no-one did anything about it, and these are not the only police who have used their power to rape and abuse. We must hold onto our outrage, because it is out of that outrage that the hope for a something better can be built," wrote Maia on her blog.

It is now time for action! The Christchurch District Court was spraypainted on Thursday night and a picket was held there on Friday morning. In Wellington, around 50 people showed up to a vigil outside the High Court. Many bus drivers responded to the "toot for support" sign and not a single cop showed up. The pavement was covered in chalk.

Medical Marijuana Card Fee Increase Decreased

San Francisco Bay Area, 02.03.2007 09:39

The state of California had been planning to increase the fees that it charges to organizations that it licenses to issue medical cannabis ID cards on March 1st. However, at the last minute, the Department of Health announced that the fees would be raised by $66 on April 1st, rather than by $142 in March. The new fee for Medi-Cal patients will be $33 dollars, but people such as seniors and veterans will still have to scramble to pay the more expensive fee because they receive federal- rather than state- benefits. Americans for Safe Access says, "It is important now to encourage Boards of Supervisors in counties that have not yet implemented ID card programs to implement (them) immediately, so that there is equal protection across the state regardless of where one lives."

On objectivity, neutrality, and integrity in covering the Atlantic Yards

NYC, 01.03.2007 19:39

[From my remarks at the Grassroots Media Conference. A lively crowd of about 50 came to listen to and question the panel, organized by Stuart Schrader of Picketing Henry Ford. Also participating were Lumi Rolley of NoLandGrab and Candace Carponter of Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn. Attendees might notice that this version differs slightly from that delivered orally.]

I’m the most mainstream person sitting on this panel, and I don’t think there’s a contradiction between using mainstream training and experience in the service of grassroots media.

In fact, I think that grassroots media, held to professional standards, can be more intellectually honest and more responsible than the mainstream media.

I try to read everything. I read all the press. I read the documents regarding Atlantic Yards. There's lots of information in documents. That was the lesson from I.F. Stone in the 1950s and that's still true today.

HOW 'BLACK' IS OUR HISTORY MONTH?

Portland, 01.03.2007 16:39

There will be little, if any, remembrance of the men and women who fought for freedom in far more aggressive, and militant ways. While some may hear the occasional names, usually they too are softened and sweetened with time, to make them safe historical morsels for white, and corporate consumption.

For years, decades now, folks have celebrated Black History Month, with a plethora of events. There will be movies, book readings, poetry events, concerts and the like. Coming, as it does, on the heels of the nation's celebration of the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., much of what will be heard will no doubt echo that event.

But Black History is far richer, and far deeper than King.

"When a cause comes along and you know in your bones that it is just, yet refuse to defend it--at that moment you begin to die. And I have never seen so many corpses walking around talking about
justice." - Mumia Abu-Jamal
