Nueva fase de los ataques de Israel: Más muerte y más violencia
SEVENTH SORRY ANNIVERSARY PROTESTED Guàntanamo Bay opened for business on Jan 11, 2002. Now seven sorry years have passed – and Barack Obama is backsliding on his promise to close this notorious hellhole. He calls it "difficult!" On Jan 11, 2009, opponents of torture staged a protest demanding he keep his promise to shut it down. More SPEAKERS, ORGANIZERS EXPRESS UNFOUNDED OPTIMISM, ASTONISHING NAIVETE REGARDING INCOMING REGIME Before the symbolic procession of hooded "prisoners", speaker after speaker displayed an amazing willingness to trust in Emperor-Elect Obama's promises to close Guàntanamo, and a disappointing inability to "connect the dots" in the context of the growing list of Obama's broken promises of "change" in various policy areas since winning the "election" last November.

Friends of Brad Will and a number of other human rights organizations are calling for the immediate release of Juan Manuel. It is widely believed that Manuel is being framed by the government for the murder of Indymedia journalist, Brad Will, in Oaxaca during the 2006 uprising. The frame up is seen as part a larger cover up to protect the government paramilitary forces that are believed responsible for Bard Will’s murder. The outrage over the trail of Manuel is partly fueled by video filmed by Brad Will himself, video which many believe to show the identity of those Brad Will’s true killers. Many above noted the irony of the fact that it is Manuel and others who may have actually have tried to save Brad Will’s life after he was shot. Human rights activists familiar with the situation in Oaxaca are asking supporters to sign a letter of support to the judge presiding over the case.
Both Heathrow and Manchester airports are being targeted today in the second mass action by 'Climate Rush'. The domestic departure lounges of both airports are being simultaneously occupied by protesters staging a sit-down 'dinner'. Around 500 people defied airport bylaws by holding the protest - there were no arrests. Additionally, performers, musicians and artists transformed Heathrow Terminal 1 after a call-out by a new art collective called 'ARTPORT'. Todays actions were timed to coincide with MPs return to the house of commons. This week the government is expected to announce the go-ahead for Heathrows third runway although there is now speculation that the announcement will be delayed again.

As hundreds of thousands in London, Edinburgh and around the world demonstrated against Israel's genocidal attacks on Gaza, a much smaller protest took place in Wallasey, Merseyside. While it would be inappropriate to draw many parallels between the two, it can be said the struggle for life and freedom in Palestine and for decent public services in this country have one thing in common: they represent squares in the global chess match between the profit system and the rest of humanity.

President-Elect Barack Obama on Sunday told ABC's "This Week" that he stands by his July 2008 endorsement of Israel's "right to defend itself".

The biggest march for justice in Palestine in the history of New Zealand, it also saw a powerful unity between Aotearoa's Muslim and Arab community and the radical Left. A barrage of hundreds of shoes rained unto a bannerless American Consulate to the chant of "Hey, Hey, USA- where's your bloody flag today?" Over 100,000 people marched in London, surrounding the Israeli embassy where riot cops batoned and cavalry charged the crowd. In Ireland, thousands took to the streets of Belfast and Dublin, whilst in Derry the missile factory Raytheon was blockaded. Tens of thousands also marched in Paris, on the streets of Turkey, Lebanon, Greece, Italy, the USA and Egypt. The deeply unpopular Egyptian government hovers on the edge of a mass uprising, its brutality to its own striking workers and poor now compounded by its complicity in the Israeli assault in Gaza.

Boston, Mass.--Around 400 people with home-made coffins marched in downtown Boston in a silent funeral procession to join protests around the world against Israel's military aggression in Gaza. Thousands marched in major cities in Europe, Arab countries, and the United States to express their outrage for the killings of so far 821 Palestinians, including 235 children, and close to 3700 wounded (50% of them women and children). Thirteen Israelis have died in the offensive, ten of them soldiers. “Palestinian people must be some of the most extraordinary human beings in the world to continue to survive and raise families and talk about peace under the conditions they are living in,” said Catherine Hoffman from the Cambridge-Bethlehem People-to-People Project. “People who see Israel as the victim here, can see the power, absolute power that Israel wields in Palestine, not just now in terms of the killing, but everyday in terms of the occupation.”

Almost eight in 10 Americans support legislation that would make it easier for workers to join or organize labor unions, according to a new national survey from Peter D. Hart and Associates released this week. The opinion poll was designed to gather public views on the Employee Free Choice Act, a bill in Congress that would impose tough sanctions against employers who harass or fire workers who try to join unions, reduce federal red tape on certifying unions, and give workers the choice about whether they want to vote on their union by card check or by secret ballot.

Last night at 3:00 a.m. we attacked the police station across the street from Ashby BART. All of its front windows were smashed out with bricks. If the pigs think they can keep getting away with murder; they've got another thing coming. May this small action help to fuel the fires of the uprising spawned by the most recent murder at the hands of the armed thugs of capital.
BOSTON – A diverse group of 30 Palestinian-Americans, Jewish Americans and supporters dramatized the US funded Israeli war crimes in Gaza with a "die-in" at the Israeli Consulate at 20 Park Plaza in Boston, MA. Demonstrators carried poster-sized images of the recent carnage in Gaza and read the names of the over 700 Palestinian dead as a result of US-funded Israeli aggression. Susan Barney, Rick Colbath-Hess, Ridgely Fuller, and Patrick Keaney, were arrested when they refused to leave the lobby of the consulate building, until Israel agreed to an immediate and unconditional ceasefire and to end its 18-month blockade on Gaza, which has prevented Palestinians from having food, medicine and electricity.

Some 300 New Yorkers gathered in front of City Hall in Manhattan Wednesday evening, slamming New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg for a recent visit to Israel, during which he endorsed the Jewish state’s ongoing bombardment of Gaza and failed to acknowledge the suffering of the Palestinians.
Look closely at the footage the Israelis are releasing of their bommbings of Gaza. You can clearly see the "FLIR" label on some of them. This company cannot hide their involvement. They need to get out of the government contracting business and stick to explicitly selling their technology for civilian uses, or they need to be shut down!
