There, you'll find loving dogs of all shapes and sizes, just waiting for a forever home.

Against the COP15 summit in copenhagen in december!

Autonome Kraft, 26.10.2009 10:27

The Never Trust A COP network was formed in April 2009 by individuals who want to link social struggles and climate activism based on an anti-capitalist analysis to mobilize against the COP15 summit.

NTAC is a non-hierarchical network of radical left individuals and groups based on consensus decision making.

We are encouraging all radical left, anarchist and autonomous individuals and groups to come to Copenhagen and join the actions between the 12th and the 18th of December.

To put a stop to the capitalist fluxes we call for decentralized actions throughout the summit.

ERNEST COREA, 26.10.2009 09:25

IDN-InDepthNews Service

WASHINGTON DC (IDN) - The contrived label “Af-Pak” should be banned, and anybody who uses it should be fined, says U.S. Congressman Adam Smith who chairs the House of Representatives Armed Services Subcommittee on Terrorism, Unconventional Threats, and Capabilities. His comment was made to a group of academics, diplomats, journalists and others whom he addressed recently on the topic ‘Committing to a Strategy for Success in Uncertain Times’.

DEVELOPMENT: Land Grab No ‘Win-Win’ For The Poor

J. CHANDLER, 26.10.2009 09:13

IDN-InDepthNews Service

TORONTO (IDN) - They are not just grabbing their farmlands but also snatching away their livelihoods and extinguishing the flicker of hope for a future better than the present and the past. They are multilateral corporations that have lined up with wealthier nations to purchase or lease vast tracts of land in small and big developing countries.



MIDDLE EAST: Are France, U.S. Pushing Arabs Into Nuclear Race?

Fareed Mahdy, 26.10.2009 09:09

IDN-InDepthNews Service

ISTANBUL (IDN) - The oil-rich United Arab Emirates’ decision to build nuclear reactors on its soil has unleashed a frenetic, politically backed competition between giant corporations from France, U.S., Japan and South Korea, to win the $40 billion bid for this project, which may lead to a nuclear race involving other Gulf Arab state



Inocente hasta ser declarado muerto

Por: Carter Pargel* (trad. Eleonora Poggio), 25.10.2009 15:55

Reginald Blanton, febrero de 2008 En Texas no importa si eres inocente, te matarán de cualquier modo. El estado de la “estrella solitaria” solidificó esta reputación vergonzosa en 2004 cuando llevó a cabo la ejecución de Cameron Todd Willingham a pesar de que un informe de científicos reconocidos descartaba la mayoría de la evidencia que lo había mandado al corredor de la muerte.

Ahora el estado se niega nuevamente a escuchar las declaraciones de inocencia de otro hombre que tiene fecha de ejecución el 27 de octubre de 2009. Al igual que Willingham, Reginald Blanton dice que ha sido acusado y condenado por un crimen que no cometió. Pero, a diferencia de Willingham, la vida de Reginald todavía se puede salvar.



Berlin: CDU fördert Rassismus gegen Muslime

Danilo Kreutzer, 25.10.2009 15:30

CDU fördert den Rassismus ! Die CDU-Berlin veranstaltet eine Podiumsdiskussion zum Thema: “Der Islam – Ein Integrationshindernis?” – Die Antwort auf diese Frage kann, wenn man sich die Besetzung der Veranstaltung anschaut, nur lauten: “Ja!” – Die Teilnehmerliste der Podiumsdiskussion ist klar Anti-Muslimisch organisiert worden. Wessen Geistes Kind hier eigentlich von der CDU gefördert wird ist klar. Der Rassismus getarnt als Islamkritik erlebt seine Renaissance dank der “bürgerlichen” Partei in Berlin. Tatsächliche Selbstkritik bleibt aus, auch die nötige Empörung. CDU fördert Rassismus gegen Muslime:  http://www.dunia.de/2009/10/24/berlin-cdu-fordert-rassismus-gegen-muslime/

BRD: SPD-Spitze hält an Hartz IV &amp; Rente mit 67 fest

Renee Ögerman, 24.10.2009 20:46

Münte mit neuer Liebe Die SPD-Spitze bekennt sich zu Hartz IV und der "Rente mit 67". Allenfalls "diskutierbar" sollen die sozialen Einschnitte werden .... Auch nach dem SPD Wahldebakel bei der Bundestagswahl hält die Parteispitze an der Einführung der Hartz IV Gesetze sowie an der Anhebung des Renteneintrittsalter - Rente mit 67 - fest. Glaubt man den wissenschaftlichen Wahlbeobachtern, waren es genau diese einschneidenden unsozialen Gesetzesänderungen, die das schlechte Abschneiden der SPD verursachten.



Biggest African land-grab ever ahead in Congo Republic will displace subsistence farmers and destroy jungle

Klaus Schenk and Diet Simon, 24.10.2009 20:44

Congo jungle to go for South African agrofuel More than a billion people suffer hunger. Most of them live in Africa, where yet again a spectacular land-grab is imminent. The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is leasing almost a third of its area to South African investors for 99 years. While the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations deplores that land in poor countries is increasingly becoming an object for speculation, the biggest land-grab on the continent, 10 million hectares, is imminent. 100,000 square kilometres is to be leased to Agri SA, South Africa's biggest farmers union.

GOP’S ISAAC HAYES: WHITE HOUSE ‘COMMISSARS’ DON’T JUST ADMIRE COMMIES – THEY ACT LIKE REDS TOO

Hayes for Congress, 24.10.2009 18:48

“My district is a largely African-American community, which voted for, and still likes, President Obama. Mao Tse-Tung, however, is not the idea of hope and change we have in our neighborhoods. We want better jobs, school choice, prosperity, and freedom. We don't want our fellow Americans to be attacked by radical White House underlings. ‘We the people’ are not ‘the enemy.’ We are the proud citizens of the United States of America.”

BRD: Wohin der Apfel fällt

Eduard Packenfeld, 24.10.2009 15:10

Hungerlohn Schon als der junge Karl-Theodor Freiherr zu Guttenberg (A.d.A. ... kurz: KTFz Guttenberg) mit dem Amt des CSU-Generalsekretärs betraut wurde, hatte ich mir das Buch seines Großvaters Karl Theodor Freiherr zu Guttenberg aus dem Bücherregal geholt, das er als Bundestagabgeordneter der Christlich Sozialen Union 1964 auf Wunsch des konservativen Seewald Verlages geschrieben hat. Es trägt den Titel »Wenn der Westen will« und war mir wegen seines scharfmacherischen Inhalts im Gedächtnis geblieben. Nun, da der Enkel einen weiteren Sprung nach oben gemacht hat, blättere ich noch einmal in dem alten Schinken und bekomme wieder eine Gänsehaut. Lange vor George W. Bush predigte er den Präventivkrieg: »Gegen die sowjetische Überlegenheit an konventionellen Streitkräften gibt es nur die Androhung des Einsatzes nuklearer Waffen.« (Seite 122) ..........

Move Beyond RTI

Dr.A.prabaharan, Research Director, Public Action, 24.10.2009 07:03

Truly the RTI has revolutionised the information world of India. Having placed this revoluntionary zeal of RTI I must also talk about the pseudo RTI champions whose full time job is to file RTI petitions. This is for their publicity. But jams the network and disturbs the genuine information seeker. As we know that Indian bureaucracy moves in a snail pace, pseduo RTI applicants job complicates the problem. Moving beyond the RTI the goverment must think about introducing DTP – Duty to Publish as a rule. All the contract, recruitment, government functioning which doesn’t disturb the strategic functioning and policies of the government must be available in the websites. This can lessen the trouble. Let us see below how the information commissioners have fared in the last few years of RTI introduction.




Spectrum Scam Raja

Dr.A.Prabaharan, Research Director, Public Action, 24.10.2009 05:44


Why to protest the CBI raid if there is no fishy deal in the telecom ministry? Karunanidhi the octagenrian chief minister of Tamil Nadu don't lose even a minute to defend his family members. In these kinds of family rescue his health problem is not a deterrence. No idea from where he gets the energy to defend his tainted family members. A. Raja the union telecom minister for the past four years has been ruining the cash rich telecom sector. From the profit making BSNL he took the company to the begging stage. Such a non performing but a corrupt minister is ruining the potential public sector company. The Prime Minster Dr. Manmohan Singh has been dragged by Karunanidhi in his letter protesting CBI raids. Although the P.M has been compelled to utter few decent words about Raja when the UPA II was reluctant to add him as the minister the same words has been quoted as P.M's genuine certificate to the scam tainted Raja. To save the publc telecom companies from further collapse, P.M must dismiss Raja from the ministry to save the industry.



Name Changing States

Dr.A.Prabaharan, Research Director, Public Action, 24.10.2009 04:54

Politics play a dirty role in every decision of the Governments in Centre and States. Changing the name of a city or state is one of these many dirty games. It is understandable that localisation of the names is to respect the language and culture. But when even that local names are changed when governments change tell the malafide intentions. Uttranchal to Uttrakhand is the best example. Everyone is put under heavy strain with these name change tamashas. It must stop immediately.

Papua New Guinea tuna factories threaten regional ecology, livelihoods

Klaus Schenk and Diet Simon, 23.10.2009 22:49

Protesting against tuna industry plans With its large schools of tuna the South Pacific off Papua New Guinea ranks as one of the last rich fisheries of the world’s oceans. Ten large tuna factories are now to be built in the coastal city of Madang with the help of the World Bank. Within a few years industrial tuna harvesting would destroy the region’s rich fish stocks and irrevocably destroy Madang’s beautiful coast.

Next: A Popular Referendum for a New Honduras Constitution?

Al Giordano assisted here by General Joe, 23.10.2009 17:57

"The coup was held on June 28 precisely to stop a non-binding referendum – one that asked if Hondurans wanted the right to vote for or against a new Constitution – but the regime’s own insistence on holding faux “elections” on November 29 inadvertently provides the people with the opportunity to do the very thing the coup was intended to stop: To put up ballot boxes outside of every “official” polling place and survey the people on that original question.
Now that the Honduran civil resistance and its diverse social movements are so much better organized in every town and city than ever before, the little bird asked, why not utilize the November 29 date of the regime’s sham “elections” to hold a real referendum? The suggestion is to place a “First Ballot Box” (“primera urna”), outside of every official polling place, that asks the first question anew: “Do you favor convening a national Constituent Assembly to democratically write a new Constitution for the Republic of Honduras?” “Yes” or “No?”
That little bird must have likewise carefully listened to the voices from below.
We heard it - and reported it to you - from the northeastern cities of Trujillo, Tocoa, and Saba and the nearby farms of Guadalupe Tepayac. We heard it throughout our reporting from coastal La Ceiba and from the Afro-Honduran and Garifuna communities throughout that coast. From the popular barrios of San Pedro Sula and the highway blockades of Comayagua the same central demand was on everyone’s lips: ¡Constituente!"

Éléments pour un appel combatif contre l’OMC

Action Autonome, 23.10.2009 17:29

Affiche A la fin de cette année se tiendra à Genève la septième session de la conférence ministérielle de l’OMC. Dix ans après Seattle qui avait vu naître le mouvement antiglobalisation, ce sera l’occasion pour les puissants de ce monde de réengager les négociations sur le cycle de Doha pour essayer de recoller les morceaux d’un capitalisme affaibli par le séisme financier d’octobre 2008. L’objectif est toujours le même, il s’agit de favoriser le libre-échange, d’activer la circulation des marchandises avec toutes les conséquences délétères que nous connaissons : délocalisations, mise au ban des personnes et collectivités pas assez rentables, enrichissement des plus riches, pollution accrue, destruction massive des matières premières non renouvelables et de la nature.

Theoretical Description of an 'Anti-Gravity' Device

Brent Herbert, 23.10.2009 16:28

We require the Unified Field Theory if we are to avoid being up to our nostrils in toxic nuclear sludge (the answer to 'peak oil'). In a recent experiment, a frog was enclosed within a chamber and then an electromagnetic field was formed which created a small pocket of zero gravity. The frog can then be seen floating around much like an astronaut in a space capsule traveling to the moon. An 'anti-gravity effect is real. What is missing here is the correct theoretical explanation for this phenomenon.



La quinta columna ocupa áreas sensibles y estratégicas del gobierno venezolano - ¿Ingenua tolerancia o complicidad concertada?

Iván Oliver Rugeles, 23.10.2009 16:25

No podemos en las actuales circunstancias en que los grupos de la oposición todavía persisten en sus esquemas golpistas, con el apoyo cada día mayor del gobierno del norte y sus lacayos criollos, seguir aceptando con una tolerancia que ya raya en una gran irresponsabilidad, que el alto gobierno consienta que muchos de sus integrantes admitan la permanencia de enemigos de este proceso de cambios en las instituciones del Estado. Eso es inadmisible y cuanto antes hay que ponerle coto a esa situación, o de lo contrario, nos veríamos en el terrible trance de tener que presenciar, con la mayor perplejidad, que nuestro Comandante de nuevo sea sacado de Miraflores y esta vez ocurra que no sepamos lo que hagan con él, pues no creo que se les ocurrirá repetir lo de Zelaya…!!! No olvidemos que el imperio no cejará en su empeño por apoderarse de nuestro país y para hacerlo, ya sabemos que no desdeña cualquier fórmula que haya para hacerlo, así sea el asesinato planificado de nuestro Presidente o una invasión sangrienta al estilo de la de Panamá, en 1989.

Josef Dackelmann, 23.10.2009 11:46

Willy Brandt Die Bundesregierung gerät beim Thema ALG II zunehmend in Erklärungsnot. Eine Rolle spielen Pelzmäntel, Lernprozesse und Haarshampoo. Eigentlich ging es dem Kläger Thomas Thomas K. nur darum, dass die ALG II-Regelsätze "ordnungsgemäß, rechtskonform, transparent und nachvollziehbar bemessen werden". Die Klage könnte aber durchaus dazu führen, dass die gesamte Regelsatzpolitik geändert werden muss, z.B. hin zu einer individuellen Leistung, was durch die Regelsätze ja abgeschafft wurde (bis auf wenige Ausnahmen).

Wie gefährlich ist nun die Schweinegrippe?

Fritz Dressler, 22.10.2009 22:45

Schweinegrippe Hier in Deutschland gab es bei etwa 22.000 Infizierten zwei gesicherte Todesfälle. Im Vergleich dazu schätzt man die „Grippetoten“, die durch „grippale Infekte“ hervorgerufen werden, allein in Deutschland zwischen 10.000 bis 30.000 pro Jahr. Das ist weitaus mehr als die Sterblichkeit von 0,01% bei der Schweinegrippe, die deshalb zu recht als milde eingestuft wird.
