In light of the recent attack by Mel Gibson on the Mayan community at the screening of his film at Cal State Northridge, I thought people should read the follow article by Penny Hess, Chairwoman of the African People's Solidarity Committee under the leadership of the African People's Socialist Party. http://apscuhuru.org/analysis/apocalypto/
Bien venida la feliz iniciativa del gobierno nacional anunciada recientemente en relación a la construcción de bases militares fronterizas, mediante el convenio ALBA, con Cuba, que albergarán a los componentes de la Fuerza Armada para combatir a los grupos irregulares y paramilitares en la frontera colombo venezolana en la ejecución del Plan de Seguridad Fronteriza para el Estado.
Un disque et un DVD sans langue de bois, au témoignage neutre, qui reflette la percée des idées d'extrême-droite dans le paysage politique français.
Un témoignage apparemment gênant puisqu' aucun distributeur de disques n'a eu le courage de placer ce projet chez les disquaires de l'hexagone !
On peut donc se poser la question sur ce qui peut engendrer cette forme de censure. Est-ce : - les images du défilé du Front National vu de l'intérieur ? - la critique de la lutte anti-raciste parfois démagogique et trop plate ? - l'entretien avec le principal organisateur des attentats sur les locaux du Front National à Marseille ? - le témoignage des habitants d'Orange, ville aux mains d'une mairie d'extrême droite ? - les exemples de lois et comportements racistes de notre République ? - l'analyse de l'après-Révoltes de Novembre 2005 et l'absence de mesures sociales ? - les images interdites en télévision du dernier jour de l'expulsion du gymnase de Cachan ?
The statements by Rahall and Schweitzer are so full of holes that I could spend several pages rebutting their ludicrous statements but, hopefully, it will suffice to say that brucellosis has never been transmitted from bison to cattle or human in the wild. Once, during a Texas A & M study, wherein bison and cattle were confined together in tight quarters, there was such a transmission but if this microorganism was truly the issue, there would be a cry for the slaughter of elk. Elk have transmitted the virus on more than one occasion with some frequency.
HALT GIANT METHANE PEC PLANT NOW Come out for Earth Day celebration and Action Queen's Park, Toronto - Friday April 20, 2007 12 Noon (family friendly event) Let's come together to do something,where Premier/Minister of Research and Innovation Dalton McGuinty failed to do. Dalton “Dirty Coal” McGuinty promised to close all of Ontario's coal plants by 2007. He then said he'd close them by 2009. Then in September 2006 said he won't close them until 2014. Do you believe him? Ontario's monstrous coal plant Nanticoke is constantly on North America's top five carbon and pollution emitters. Closing that coal plant is equivalent to taking more than + 3 million cars off the road. That's a lot of “lightbulb changing.” Greenhouse gases up 90% from Ontario coal plants from 1995-2005, and McGuinty says he is the one to blame (Toronto Star, Feb 1/07). Ontario can conserve, and can invest in large scale renewable energy sources.
Dalton “Big Gas” McGuinty is undemocratically pushing a giant methane gas plant on Toronto's Harbourfront known as Portland Energy Plant at 440 Unwin Ave. Opposing this are most local politicians, mayor David Miller, Toronto Work Department, Dr. Sheela Basrur, and the Board of Health, as well as numerous Grassroots Environmental and Community organizations. This white (greenhouse-spewing) elephant was the brainchild of former Premier Mike Harris with Dalton “Harris-lite” McGuinty implementing it.

VHeadline en Español News Editor Jesus Nery Barrios writes: Continuing our cyber crusade, navigating the web of lies and hoaxes seeded against Venezuela’s Bolivarian Government, President Hugo Chavez and its brave people in the mainstream media, and to show readers the other side of the coin, allowing them to achieve some balance in the information they receive and to arrive at their own conclusions, we find yet another oft-reiterated topic concerning the land of Simon Bolivar, Luis Aparicio and Jacinto Convit (the Venezuelan physician who discovered a vaccine for leprosy).
Have you ever walked along the street and found that you are purposefully ignoring something because you think your mind is playing tricks with you? You know the kind of thing, the cloud in the shape of a crocodile that changes into something new while you are looking away, or a person with two heads, which was, in fact, two people viewed from an odd angle.
ONGs y gobierno de varios continentes, entre ellos América Latina, reunidos esta semana en Bruselas en una asamblea sobre el agua en el Europarlamento se manifestaron por reconocer el acceso a este recurso como un "derecho", estimando que la gestión de este "bien común" no debía bajo ningún caso quedar en manos de empresas privadas.
Organizações Não-Governamentais (ONGs) e governos de todos os continentes, reunidos esta semana em Bruxelas para uma assembléia sobre a água no Europarlamento, defenderam o reconhecimento do acesso a este recurso como um "direito" e consideraram que a gestão deste bem comum não deve, em nenhum caso, ficar nas mãos de empresas privadas.
The World Water Assembly for Elected Representatives and Citizens (WWAEPC) at the European Parliament in Brussels on 18-20 March made this crystal clear, and resolved to mobilise widely to get the right incorporated in a United Nations Declaration as a way of counteracting water privatisation policies, universally accepted as devastating by all the participants
Sarko l'avait promis :"on ne viendra pas à la privatisation". La vidéo FR3 du 06/04/2004. Les promesses n'engagent que ceux qui les croient. Menteur ou impuissant, c'est donc à nous de lui faire tenir parole.
“Stop the war, yes we can! SDS is back again!” This was a popular chant heard around the country as students in high schools and colleges walked out of classes, held rallies, marches, teach-ins and other creative actions in response to the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) call for national coordinated student actions on March 20, the fourth anniversary of the beginning of the Iraq War. The call was put out by SDS groups that met at the School of the Americas protest last November, where 100 students from 20 campuses voted unanimously to make March 20 a national day of student action against the war. Those 20 schools quickly became 83, as colleges and high schools from the Northeast to the Midwest, from West Coast to the South, signed on to the call.
There will be protests in towns and cities all over the country. And everywhere people will be using signs, their bodies, chalk, or anything else they can think of to spell out IMPEACH! We invite everybody to start thinking about the most creative, spectacular, beautiful, and clever ways they can come up with to spell it out. This is a spin-off of the BeachImpeach project on the shores of San Francisco where over 1,100 people spelled out "Impeach!" Find out what is going on in your town, or start your own project.
¿Porque los Reyes de España pueden visitar todos los paises del mundo menos el Sahara Occidental? ¿Porque no pueden visitar a los refugiados saharauis, esoa que hasta hace algunos años fueron españoles? ¿Tan pronto olvidan?

Michigan Emergency Committee Against War and Injustice (MECAWI), 23.03.2007 02:15
