Three Mapuche men and one Mapuche woman are now on their 48th day of a hunger strike. Today they have decided to go without fluids. They will die in the next couple of days if their demand is not met. They demand justice.
A recent report warned that climate change puts 400 million more people worldwide at risk of hunger. Australia accounts for 1.5% of global greenhouse gas emissions - and therefore is responsible for this percentage of their detrimental effects. The potential consequences of global warming are so grave that blocking efforts to limit human-induced climate change is a crime against humanity.
The following is the second of a two-part article. The first part was posted April 28. http://wsws.org/articles/2006/apr2006/cia1-a28.shtml New details on the practice of illegal kidnapping and the secret internment of alleged terror suspects carried out by the US secret service agency, the CIA, emerged in a report issued by the human rights organisation Amnesty International earlier this month.

Here are some photos from saturday's anti-war march in New York City; 300,000 people were there, 10 blocks long--yet the NY Times did not post its article about it on the front page---that's why we love Indymedia---corporate media sponsors the war.
The United Nations Security Council, under heavy US-Israeli pressure- finds Iran noncompliant to the NPT. The next Security Council resolution will include a 'chapter 7' option which allows military attack on Iran. The fuse is lit.

I am a victim of government, banks, and Attorneys trust theft forgery and Idendity theft secretly using another man named Alvin James Hansen for 12 years.
At first impression this might seem a good thing, but the real price of such a concealment has been more than seven decades of denying the means and capability to bring abundant energy to the whole world. Not only could the release of such knowledge have ended all militarism and the related suffering caused by wars, it could have enabled presently 'developing' countries to feed, house and clothe their populations to levels that would have freed them from poverty, disease, and the burden of debt they currently 'owe' to the capitalist West.

Colbert's schtick finally paid off, in that the Bush/PNAC Regime was so duped by his phony Hard Right/Faux News-esque stage persona, they believed he was a "safe" choice to lampoon the, um, "decider".
One infamous line from the Vietnam War was, “It became necessary to destroy the village to save it.” The Bush Administration has carried this thinking to stratospheric heights
The current battle in the US courts between the government and human shields who went to Iraq, has not stopped the number of human shields signed up to the mission to Iran from growing rapidly.
Bush is guilty and many Iraqis are dead and many more are disabled. Still, many more will be severely psychologically damaged. The children in Iraq are
Atención Mexicano; muchos productos, aunque tengan nombre en español, son gringos: aquí una breve lista para no comprarlos este 1 de mayo.
I've been posting on Indymedia sites for years but have never had much of a problem with censorship until now. I think the organization should be able to investigate and consider it's own actions and the actions of other groups using the indymedia name. Originally posted under "9/11 Investigation" and "Media Criticism" this has now turned into more of the latter.

There is only one small group of Extremists pushing for further war with Iran, Syria, etc., the same criminal gang that planned and executed Afghanistan and Iraq (and most likely, 911). Many of them may be American, but their allegiance lies elsewhere, and within a violent, supremacist Ideology.
Time to stand up, once and for all, BEFORE the next war begins, and say "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!". Time to reclaim what's yours, America.
The pamphlet attached below was created by members of the no borders network and deletetheborder.org for outreach during Mayday actions and beyond. It is bilingual and includes a space to promote local events and resources.
We do not only pick on the US, many European countries are complicit in the policies that are destroying the planet and harming billions of people. And we have plenty of criticism for China, Russia and the many corrupt regimes around the world and their critics too – those who like the alternative media who do not examine things from reality.
Patient dumping happens when a medically unstable patient is transferred or discharged for financial reasons. Hospitals are dumping indigent patients all the time.
This is a request for a call to ACTION in support of the MAY 1st NATIONWIDE BOYCOTT!

The trafficking of children through the U.S.-Mexico border runs rampant. The U.S. State Department estimates that each year up to 17,500 people, primarily women and children, are trafficked into the U.S. and sold or forced into labor or commercial sexual exploitation. The United Nations has listed Mexico as the number one exporter of exploited children into North America.

"Now, when United States troops appear in the Middle East to fight with the Zionists as their allies to prevent the return of these people who were evicted from their homes in the 1948 armed insurrection by the Zionists who were transplanted there from Eastern Europe... when that happens, the United States will trigger World War III."
My first born and only child for 10 years was taken by the local police and turned over to Child Protective Services (CPS). He was removed from an apartment that we DID NOT live in, after being slapped in the face by one of the two male occupants of the apartment. Due to the tactics and fabricated stories created by the police and their co-conspirators at CPS, he is still in foster care 16 months later.

* Estos tres textos han sido tomados de El Libertario # 47, mayo-junio 2006, vocero bimensual de la Comisión de Relaciones Anarquistas. En ellos se pone al día y condensa una perspectiva anarquista sobre la situación del movimiento laboral en este país.
The second ever Gay Pride Parade took place today in Krakow, Poland. Once again, it was attacked by the right-wing ultra-catholic "Great Poland Youth" but kept firm and, protected by police, completed its March. Article by a Parliamentary Adviser in Poland, who unfortunately must remain anonymous.
King Kong is my hero. He’s big, muscular, sensitive, a terrific actor—and he’s not real. The use of computer-generated imagery has really taken off in Hollywood. So why has Madison Avenue suddenly gone bananas for real apes? Chimpanzees are our closest living relatives, with at least 95% of the same DNA. We’re closer to them than they are to gorillas, so when I see chimpanzees being used as on-screen comedians, dressed up in silly costumes to sell credit cards, I think, “Is this any way to treat a relative?”
The goal of the "TERRA: The Nature of Our World" Video Podcast is to increase environmental awareness through the use of documentary film, and to become a community portal through which citizens of the world can engage, discuss, contribute, and participate in efforts to create a more sustainable future for our planet. The development of the show was conceived out of a common desire among eco-conscious professional filmmakers, producers and aspiring students to create a dedicated venue for airing uncompromised environmental material which otherwise would not have found an audience due to contentious environmental content and/or experimental and artistic style.

SEÑORES INDYMEDIA, no puede ser posible que exista un abuso del poder de informar, que su red sea un instrumento político de demagogos y de perros sabuesos de los extorsionadores. A continuación un extracto de las publicaciones que fueron borradas por los administradores de indymedia bolivia, que promulgan el desafuero social y la delincuencia.
In Godzilla movies, the money shot is when the big guy crushes Tokyo. With city dwellers rushing around trying to dodge death by dinosaur. But if mega developer Forest City Ratner and New York State's quasi-public Empire State Development Corporation (ESDC) have their way, no one will be left to flee the footprint of the Atlantic Yards Project in Brooklyn. The threat of eminent domain will have emptied the neighborhood long before Godzilla gets there.
