Las presentes son fotos del repudio de los Maestros del Departamento de La Libertad especialmente de Trujillo al genocida y fascista Alan Garcia que fue echado de la Plaza de Armas de Trujillo a tomatazos y huevos, por lo cual tuvo que salir despavorido por el repudio general
This afternoon at 1:00 pm, local residents broke ground for a new community garden at the proposed site of a Cheshire Oil Truck Stop, the corner of Putney Road and Black Mountain Road in Brattleboro, VT. The residents have transformed the predominantly vacant lot into a bountiful community garden and say they will occupy and work the land until destructive and short-sighted development ends on Putney Road.
"President Bush's post-terror attack martial law plan is so shocking that even sitting members of Congress and Homeland Security officials are barred from viewing it, another example of executive über alles and a chilling portent of what is to come as constant reminders of the inevitability of terror attacks reverberate."

Desde el primer trimestre del año pasado un grupo de narradores recorremos prisiones, y los resultados son fructificantes, y asombrosamente estimulantes. Daniel Chavarría visitó, por ejemplo, el Combinado del Este; Eduardo Heras León, la Prisión de San Francisco de Paula; Miguel Mejides estuvo en la Prisión Provincial de Pinar del Río, y yo estuve, entre otros sitios, en la Prisión Occidental de mujeres. Se trata del enriquecimiento que el arte es capaz de ofrecer, de la necesidad intrínseca del ser humano de verse reflejado en esa otra magnitud de la realidad.

VHeadline en Español News Editor Jesus Nery Barrios writes: In his latest nationwide TV and radio show 'Alo Presidente,' aired Sunday, Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez claimed categorically that he is not a Marxist ... a topic he did not need to clarify, given the trim and the concrete politics his administration has carried out.
In Ecuador we are living a "revolutionary (let´s call it changes in a democratic process)" and struggle against the right wing, the new fascist skin heads groups, politicians, the owners of Banks and mass media, so we in Indymedia Ecuador are trying to inform with all the base organizations using the video as the main way to inform to all the world what's happening here.

This move is the beginning of a series of high profile cases concerning Apartheid era crimes in South Africa that the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) plans to bring to court, involving killers on all sides of the political divide who either did not seek amnesty from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC), or who were refused it.
Greenpeace intervened at the ASEAN Forum on Coal (AFOC) meeting in Chiang Mai, to bust the myth of clean coal technologies that are being aggressively pushed by the coal industry as a solution to pollution and climate change caused by coal power plants.

The Nameless Past
If it were only happening in another place and time it would be so easy to see through!
The son of a national leader relies on his father's political cronies, who ensure that he inherits his father's position and power. It's a story that has happened throughout history, whether in times of monarchy or of democracy. At first, he promises a benign, faithful reign.
Unknown to the people, though, he and his cronies have already committed the nation to an unending world war to control Middle East oil resources and to advance Israel's regional policies. All it would take, they have written, is a sudden terrifying attack, a "New Pearl Harbor," to rouse the people of the United States for the Middle East war needed to bring about a "New American Century."
The much-desired attack was carried out on 9/11/01, within a year of the new leader's elevation to power. The media helped him and his cronies tell the people what happened:
"Middle Eastern terrorists have treacherously attacked us because they hate America and Israel! The same terrorists intend to attack us again, probably with nukes! It's not a matter of IF they will attack, but WHEN they will attack! Terrorists are everywhere, and we must have a Homeland Security Agency! We must have a powerful unitary executive and an enabling Patriot Act! We must fight wars of self-defense to liberate Afghanistan and Iraq!"
It all worked like a charm. After 9/11, nine out of ten Americans approved of him, and two out of three still approved of him when he attacked Iraq on 3/19/03.
The Perilous Present
Five years later, though, his wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are unmitigated fiascoes. His ends and means are becoming the matter of national opposition and investigation. His media, which sold us his Global War on Terror, is discredited. Key members of his formerly unified Republican party are defecting. A few bold mainstream pundits are calling his "unitary executive" approach to ruling our democracy "Bush's Dictatorship" and "King George's Monarchy." They have even begun to call for his impeachment.
His standing with the people is worse yet. Three quarters disapprove of him and his Quisling Congress. Three quarters want us out of his Iraq fiasco. Half believe that he ordered or allowed 9/11 to happen. Half want him and his henchman Cheney impeached. Desperate situations require dire remedies. Bush cronies have lately been saying that what this nation needs is another 9/11 attack, preferably nuclear and mass-casualty-producing, to get back in line with Bush. This long-promised "9/11-2B" attack would vindicate him for everything he has already done, and empower him for everything he must still do to continue with the New American Century war plan. Coincidentally, this 9/11-2B nuking of an American city is just what the Homeland Security Agency and national military forces have been practicing regularly in recent years.
This spring, on 5/9/07, Bush signed National Security Presidential Directive 51, which allows him and his Homeland Security Agency to establish a dictatorship in the event of a national catastrophe -- like 9/11-2B.
More recently, on 7/10/07, Homeland Security Agency Director Michael Chertoff told the Chicago Tribune that he had a "gut feeling" that Al Qaeda would attack us this summer.
The next day, on 7/11/07, a leaked National Intelligence Estimate affirmed Chertoff's gut feeling by announcing that Al Qaeda is rested and ready to hit us again with a 9/11-2B attack.
Last week reliable Bush sirens Condi Rice and Judith Miller made the rounds with obliging TV talking heads, discussing the enormity and inevitability of 9/11-2B.
On 7/20/07 ABC News presented articles carrying an official 9/11-2B worst-case scenario: a nuked Sears Tower -- or something equally catastrophic in another U.S. city:
Clearly the media is regurgitating whatever lies are fed it by Bush and his cronies to develop the 9/11-2B plot, and they are doing so in a hurry. Public support for the war president and his war policy has already evaporated, and the Quisling Congress now demands improvement in Iraq if they are to support the war. General Petraeus, the new Bush commander in Iraq, will deliver an Iraq "surge" progress report to official Washington in September. Military and political officials have already predicted that the report will be dismal, and end Bush's war project for a New American Century. It may be now or never for 9/11-2B, sometime before the end of the summer, as Chertoff said.
The Future: Where & When
Primary Target: Houston. Over the past three years military and police veterans like me have been alerting the public to government exercises aiming at the nuclear destruction of Houston petro-suburbs Texas City, Baytown and New Caney. Four times in those three years we were able to predict to within a day major petrochemical explosions in those petro-suburbs. The odds against this kind of accuracy are astronomical. As the center of Big Oil and the Bush Family, Houston remains the most endangered city in America. Any patriotic group, like mine, trying to alert its home city to the dangers of a 9/11-2B attack should read the Arctic Beacon account of our efforts to derail a nuclear attempt against Texas City on 1/31/06: http://www.arcticbeacon.com/articles/3-Feb-2006.html
Secondary Target: Chicago. While Houston is the most endangered city, the most endangered building -- the best candidate to be the next World Trade Center -- is the Sears Tower. Official sources have pronounced it just that ever since the original 9/11 attack, when they said it was on the Al Qaeda hit list. Larry Silverstein, who bought the WTC two months before 9/11, led a group that purchased the Sears Tower on 3/11/04, the day of the Madrid bombings. Again, anyone interested in how we citizens can counter a possible 9/11-2B attack should read a communique we sent Illinois Governor Blagojevich in May, 2006. That's when the government had scheduled secret 9/11-2B exercises in Chicago, while Chicago Mayor Daley was tucked conveniently away in Israel for his first visit ever: http://tekgnosis.typepad.com/tekgnosis/2006/05/ghost_troop_com.html
Tertiary Target: Portland. I have never been involved in earlier 9/11-2B exercises in Portland, but the city has certainly shown up on my radar recently, thanks to worried Internet chatter. Citizens in the Pacific Northwest are smart to be concerned about the upcoming "Noble Resolve" exercise, which federal officials describe in their own publications: "In August, Noble Resolve will coordinate with officials in Oregon to model a nuclear attack on Portland." http://www.fcw.com/article98147-04-04-07-Web
Red Zone Dates: 7/27/07 - 9/22/07. 7/27/07, the beginning of the red zone, will be a week before the congressional break. 9/22/07, the end of the red zone, will be a week after Petraeus' mid-September report. It is my fondest wish that the entire red zone will pass uneventfully. It's up to us to make sure it does. My experience since 9/11 has shown me and countless other alarmed patriots that exposure of potential 9/11-2B attacks can shut them down, or transform them to relatively minor explosions. Simply put, if the government knows that we know what they are setting up, then they can't go through with it.

Captain May and other veterans formed Ghost Troop as an independent intelligence group in 2003, and have since been read and listened to worldwide.

A través de diversos medios de comunicación, hemos tomado conocimiento de un habitante del desierto australiano, cuyo nombre es Jeffrey Lee, de 36 años de edad, de la región de Koongarra,, en la perisferia del Parque Nacional Kakadu, a quien la "Compañía Areba" le habría ofrecido US$ 5.000.000.000 para que venda un terreno de unos 12 kilómetros cuadrados, donde habría algo así como 14.000 Toneladas de uranio, pero donde también están sepultados sus antepasados...
After a tumultuous trial in state court, Sacramento patient and caregiver John Berchielli was convicted on five counts relating to his medical marijuana garden. Berchielli was a supplier of clones to the Sacramento dispensary Alternative Specialties, which was shut down by a multi-agency raid in July 2005 and whose owner is currently being prosecuted in federal court. This closure, which occurred shortly before his own bust, prevented Berchielli from being able to present adequate evidence of his caregiver status during trial. When interviewed after giving their verdict, jurors reported that the lack of patient lists and testimony heavily influenced their decision.
Anti-nuclear activists fighting waste dumping in north Germany claim to have information from inside the industry that “truckloads” of safety-relevant information have been destroyed.
The group opposes the ‘interim’ storage of highly radioactive waste in a light-construction hall and the later ‘final’ storage in a specially dug salt mine next door at the village of Gorleben, between Hanover and Hamburg.

The NRO and NGA played a bigger role in the 9/11 operation than previously imagined. Not only were the NRO's offices evacuated on 9/11 for a scheduled drill of planes crashing into buildings, but it turns out the NGA's video technology was used in creating the infamous videos from that day.
Ratatouille is the big cheese at the box office, and I could not be more delighted. Disney’s hit movie about a plucky rat named Remy, who dreams of becoming a gourmet chef, is showing audiences what I’ve known for some time: Rats are friendly and affectionate animals who can charm almost anyone if given the chance.
Physics is about being useful, its language is to be open to whatever patterns of change which can lead to a useful description of physical systems. Physics in the 20th century was corralled by the totalitarian state, which has been led physics to be marginalized and irrelevant and mostly about nuclear bomb engineering, ie probability of particle collisions at a small central point of an explosion, and information systems. Physics sits at the core of the totalitarian state’s power, so it is some of the most controlled information in such a society. The immense dominance that a few have over the many depends, for its oppressive success, on limiting the ideas that can be expressed in a society. New ideas are forbidden because new ideas can cause the most change in society, and change is the thing that can most undermine the system which maintains the dominance of the few over the many. This article is about the relation between differential equations and discrete isometry subgroups (or space-forms) in physical description. These are ideas which challenge the authority of physics to its core. Freedom is about the equal right to selflessly express truth, it is not about the right of a few to selfishly dominate society. Science provides useful information about existence and civilization is about making life easier for everyone, on an equal basis.
