aldux IMC Brazilian, 20.02.2004 22:47

Hoy se cumplió una semana, del escándalo que envuelve a una parte de la cúpula del PT, y sus aliados PL en el gobierno de Lula, a cada hora, la acumulación de información, denuncias, y recriminaciones aumenta.

Duma to mull ban on media coverage of terrorism

The Russia Journal, 20.02.2004 17:43

OSCOW- United Russia, the pro-Kremlin bloc that dominates the new State Duma, is set to either completely ban media coverage of terrorist attacks and catastrophes, or to considerably restrict the volume of information reported. The issue has been addressed in two draft bills submitted to the lower house recently and will be reviewed by lawmakers next month.

Valery Komissarov, chairman of the Duma information policy committee, has proposed an amendment to the mass media act, ordering television networks to refrain from ''showing the bodies of victims of terrorist acts as well as fragments of human bodies''.

The ban is necessary to ''counteract information terrorism and to prevent psychological pressure on citizens'', the author of the draft said in an explanatory note attached to the draft. Komissarov’s colleagues in the information policy committee have already held a preliminary discussion of his initiative and tentatively endorsed the proposed amendment.

The Electronic Surveillance of America

Bruce Glaser, 20.02.2004 03:30

USA PATRIOT ACT expands all four traditional tools of surveillance -- wiretaps, search warrants, pen/trap orders and subpoenas. Their counterparts under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) that allow spying in the U.S. by foreign intelligence agencies have similarly been expanded. This means:

“Desert!” call to US troops flying to Iraq from Germany

Diet Simon (drawing on German IndyMedia postings), 19.02.2004 10:26

Demonstrations have begun at Nuremberg airport in southern Germany against American troops being flown out to Iraq. Activists report that a tent city has been erected at the airport to process the transports. A local newspaper reports that three to six chartered civilian planes a day leave Nuremberg for Iraq, each carrying 250 soldiers. Altogether 13,000 troops from bases in Bamberg, Würzburg, Vilseck and Grafenwöhr, are to be flown out, reports the “Nürnberger Nachrichten.” It quotes airport spokesman, Jan Beinßen, as saying the activities will run until 17 March.

female ex prisoner of Baathists returns to Iraq and reports

piet (via lbo-talk &gt; Guardian), 19.02.2004 10:07

At the sound of special hooting many of Baghdad's women rush outdoors to
pay the refuse collectors to collect the rubbish (in the heart of old
Baghdad, rubbish piles as high as the buildings. Women and children search
there for anything they can sell or eat).

In refusing to take part in any initiative by the US-led occupation, or
its Iraqi allies, women are practising passive resistance. They adopted
the same technique against Saddam's despised General Union of Iraqi women.
Then, they managed to cause the collapse of one of the richest, most
powerful institutions for women in the Middle East. Perhaps they will do
so again.

You can still influence the Democratic nomination process in a meaningful way. The answer is to back Representative Dennis Kucinich, who has vowed to remain in the race through the convention. If the convention becomes a "brokered" deal, which it appears will happen, then the more Progressive voices there the better for our issues.

Criticism of the criticism of peak oil

Brent Herbert, 18.02.2004 16:04

I have been following the 'peak oil' debate currently taking place on a number of Indy sites, and I have been interested in studying the papers and reports written by the debunkers and critics of 'peak oil'. What I have found reminds me of the debunkers of global warming (bad arguments, not to hard to question or even refute). My criticisms of these critics follow below...

Peak Oil, a plea to learn about it, teach, and press for responsible leadership

Michael Kuhn, 18.02.2004 15:54

Post-peak oil production, or "Peak Oil" is the most important issue of our time. You may not have heard about it, or considered it before now. Please do so. Peak oil is the root of very many of the issues raised in the Indymedia pages. Please do whatever you can, by any means, to learn, teach, and influence leaders about peak oil.
