Government and media provocations spark racist violence on Sydney beaches

Rick Kelly, 12.12.2005 17:17

Fomenting racial divisions Both the Liberals and the Laborites are committed to implementing deeply unpopular right-wing economic reforms--exacerbating social inequality, eliminating job security, and driving down wages and living conditions. The two parties seek to deflect opposition to their agenda by fomenting racial divisions in order to channel the insecurity and disaffection felt by millions of ordinary people into deeply reactionary channels. At the most fundamental level, that is what caused Sunday's events.

What if you had 16 hours, 29 minutes to live?

Sean M. Madden (, 12.12.2005 16:21

What would you be thinking — what would you be feeling — if you had but 16 hours and 29 minutes left to live, knowing that you were not going to die of natural causes at some unspecified date and time, but knew that you were scheduled — that's right, scheduled — to die one minute after midnight, tonight, in California's San Quentin prison?

Minister of Public Relations, Ministry of Public Relations, Kingdom of Hawai'i, 12.12.2005 11:37

Honolulu, HI. (11/30/05) . The royal lineages of King Kamehameha, the first Hawaiian monarch; High Chief Kamehameha Nui of Maui Island; and Queen Liliu'okalani, the last reigning Hawaiian Monarch are reaching out from the past to re-establish the Hawaiian Island Kingdom to it's former glory. All of these lineages, together with those of several chiefly lines connected to all of the Hawaiian Islands, converge in the genealogy of Edmund Keli'i Silva, Jr., as confirmed by the House of Nobles of the Kingdom of Hawai'i. As a result, these same nobles sought out Mr. Silva and asked his to serve as the next reigning monarch of the Hawaiian Islands in an effort to restore the kingdom to its once independent state. His website at, his personal royal seal depicting him wearing Kamehameha III's original royal feather cape and feather headdress (which is also stamped on his royal stationary), his families royal seal on file at Bishop museum, letters to President Bush, UN Secretary Kofi Anan, speeches to Hawaiians worldwide, and this personal interview, provides clues to his answer. Simply, "Yes."

US Navy plans use of LFAS in Atlantic, Pacific, Indian and Mediterranean Oceans

Public Relations Officer, Ministry of Public Relations, Kingdom of Hawai'i, 12.12.2005 11:28

The United States Navy has been testing a new technology called Low Frequency Active Sonar, or LFAS in numerous locations in the worlds oceans. There is some evidence in many locations that the results of this testing has contributed to the death and injury of whale, dolphin and other ocean creatures in the vicinity of the testing. Recently, the Navy has been testing this technology off the coast of the big island of Hawai'i, during the breeding season of Humpback whales that frequent the islands. Notice of Public meetings were published as a "Legal" announcement in one local newspaper. However, environmental groups and others actively in the process of suing the Navy in order to stop the testing were left out of the loop regarding the meeting which was held on the University of Hawai'i at Manoa campus in a back room, located along a poorly lit hallway, and marked with a rather confusing small 8 1/2 by 11" handwritten sign. While it was obvious that the Navy did not appear to really want public comment on the issue, several people did get an opportunity to testify, with several others looking on. None of the persons testifying supported this issue. The following is a synopsis of the meeting, and some background about the issue of LFAS.

IMC-Binghamton, Not L.A. Times, Broke Story on DoD Media Scandal

Steve Peacock, 12.12.2005 00:57

The breaking story about the U.S. military’s planting of prepackaged stories in foreign media – a “scoop” attributed to the L.A.. Times – has overlooked one critical factor: the Independent Media Center of Greater Binghamton, and not the L.A. Times, was the first media outlet across the globe to report on this propaganda-production endeavor, the brainchild of the U.S. Special Operations Command.

INCA Center is a non-profit, all-voluntary place dedicated to the
alternative culture. The place has hosted in the past 3 and half
years over 150 events: concerts, art exhibitions, projections & movie
nights, performance, festivals, etc. also for next year already we
have planned many workshops, conferences, concerts and others. If
city will evict us, and there is huge chance for this to happen, one
of the few alternative places in the region will disappear and will
leave us with no place to host all these events. Because we have
strong promises that we will never get a second place from the city.

Also we know that the only thing that will make the city change their
mind is three things:
- International protests at Romanian embassies and consulates
- Strong international and national response through email/fax/phone
- The scandal goes to the media

Australian treasurer steps up ideological offensive against welfare recipients

THE BIG PICTURE [File Photos] (Rooters) The treasurer's comment piece was released shortly before the Senate passed the Howard government's "Welfare to Work" Bill on November 6. The new legislation will slash welfare payments for thousands of new claimants, and force single parents and the disabled into low-wage jobs. By driving down the living conditions of some of the most vulnerable members of the community, the government intends to create an enlarged pool of cheap labour available for exploitation.

Activist Alert: Another subpoena in Washington

marco, 11.12.2005 01:39

This news from portland imc is just creepy. From at least as early as last Wednesday on,
the organization that calls itself "FBI" has been violating each and every one of our rights
and thereby trampling on the constitution heavily and with reckless abandon.
This doesn't just effect Washington and Oregon. You'll see right away this stretches across
Arizona, New York and everywhere else; and it's not just about Environmentalism OR arson.
It's a clever way to circumvent all laws, ethics and morals in the squashing of dissent. Alert yourself further, I urge you.
