En un pasaje del polémico film "Amén" de Costa Gavras, Pio XII ignora los ruegos del joven sacerdote jesuita Ricardo Fontana, interpretado por el actor Mathieu Kassovitz, quien le pide interceder ante los nazis para salvar la vida de millares de judíos que están a punto de ser trasladados a un campo de exterminio.
While we urge everyone around the world to host an event on the weekend of June 14/15, if you
are local in Eugene, Oregon please join us on Sunday, June 15th for a benefit
for Jeff at the Apocalypse on Broadway, 2100 W. Broadway #1, in Eugene. Details below.
On Thursday June 4th Barack Obama visited Saint Paul Minnesota to deliver a message to the people. While this was going on, anarchists were delivering a message of their own.
Slanderous news media has appeared in a government linked newspaper and a campaign of rumors has been initiated, obviously designed to undermine and isolate the Africanist Movement and its director, Chernoh Alpha M. Bah. Sierra Leoneís neocolonial government is apparently moving to criminalize the Africanist Movement in order to justify jailing and/or otherwise destroying these courageous leaders of our struggle for African self-determination.

* El Libertario published in its 51st edition (Venezuela, Novermber - Dicember 2007) a text compilation that expresses important aspects of what anarchism proposes may be done to face the growing problem of gender violence.
Patrons of the upscale, or as I call it, "bougie" Blue Hour restaurant were disgruntled when dining by the truth about foie gras—okay, they were not happy when their overpriced dinners were being served to a background of chants such as "your money, your choice, ducks and geese have no voice!" and "that's not dinner, that's diseased liver!" Protesters standing on sidewalks holding signs and chanting irritated certain patrons who felt their corporate-given entitlement was ruined. Blue Hour restaurant currently sells the delicacy of despair even after several attempts of letter writing, video giving, pamphleting, discussion with owners and education put forth by animal rights advocates..

El Senado de Paraguay rechazó este martes una donación de 71 millones de dólares que ofrecía Taiwán, como derivación de una serie de conflictos suscitados a raíz de la actitud revanchista de los seguidores del obispo Fernando Lugo, quienes haciendo honor a la tradición del país han decidido emprender una política desprovista en absoluto de grandeza.
Announcement about a Gathering for Peace against police brutality, taser use, and in support of the Kesey 3.
On May 30 Eugene police repeatedly tasered a UO student organizer at a peaceful downtown rally supporting an end to toxic roadside pesticide spraying in Lane County, Oregon. EPD wrongfully arrested 2 students and one community member collectively known as "The Kesey Three" -- as the events took place at Eugene's Ken Kesey "Free Speech" Plaza.
The United Poor People, a group of houseless folks who are protesting the sit/lie and no camping ordinances, are planning to camp out across the street from Nordstroms during the Rose Festival Parade. They're taking advantage of a temporary suspension of the no camping act, to try to publicize their cause. Hold signs, picket, and hand out flyers, or just chill out with some nice folks. Campout starts on Friday, at 10am.

What is the role of the intellectual in the Age of Bush and Cheney? On May 19, 2008, David McCullough, gave a commencement address at Boston College, a Jesuit institution. He never said one critical word about the Iraq War or the serial lies of the Bush-Cheney Gang that got the U.S. involved in that Neocon-inspired conflict. I believe Mr. McCullough missed an opportunity to speak out and to inspire the students to take their country back.
Progressive Democrat Cheryl Crist filed papers for the 3rd Congressional District race today, a district that runs from Olympia to Vancouver. Her message of peace and getting the U.S. out of Iraq reflects the views of the majority of Americans.
No Accountability let the chickens fly
Greetings to all friends, to all those who are not resigned to the situation in which we live: police occupation of the streets, of the cities, raids, deportations, arrests, daily difficulties, the dispossession of our lives; the situation that pushes us to cede a major part of our lives to the bosses of every genre, to those who preside over our destinies, to power. If we've taken the road of revolt, it's for all these reasons, to retake the power over our lives, for the freedom to live.

Urgencies of Everyday life: Between Here and the Outside
Dijo Roa Bastos alguna vez que el infortunio se enamoró del Paraguay, sentencia que nuevamente parece confirmarse cuando los vientos oscurantistas se ciernen sobre la política de un país sumido en la ignorancia y el atraso. Queda en evidencia el hecho evidente que de la antigua afiliación a un partido fascista como filtro para acceder a alguna función pública en el Paraguay, se ha retrocedido a la exigencia de abrazar la Cruz de Torquemada.
The 9/11 movement is a very troublesome development in American politics. A movement of people who have legitimate questions about the attacks that happened on September 11, 2001 has morphed into a conspiracy cult dominated by people who make a living peddling nonsense and exploiting ignorance.
I saw 3 military recruitment centers around the Rose Festival on the waterfront today, but missed the Army display. It is disgusting that Portland is allowing this celebration of militarism during one of its signature summer events.
Read this, make copies and maybe go try to discuss it with some of those gallant, "patriotic" recruiters who are lying to Portland's youth!!
Stopping the War Machine: Military Recruiters Must Be Confronted
By Ron Kovic, Truthdig
Posted on May 30, 2008, Printed on May 31, 2008
As a former United States Marine Corps sergeant who was shot and paralyzed from my mid-chest down during my second tour of duty in Vietnam on Jan. 20, 1968, I am sending my complete support and admiration to all those now involved in the courageous struggle to stop military recruitment in Berkeley and across the country.
Not since the Vietnam War protests of the late 1960s has there been a cause more just than the one you are now engaged in. Who knows better the deep immorality and deception of military recruiters than those of us who, decades ago, entered those same recruiting offices with our fathers, believing in our hearts that we were being told the truth -- only to discover later we had been deceived and terribly betrayed? Many of us paid for that deceit with our lives, years of suffering and bodies and minds that were never the same again. If only someone had warned us, if only someone had had the courage to speak out against the madness that we were being led into, if only someone could have protected us from the recruiters whose only wish was to make their quota, send us to boot camp and hide from us the dark secret of the nightmare which awaited us all.

Suficientes cartas hay puestas sobre la mesa, en fin, como para sospechar que la tan mentada "victoria de la izquierda" en Paraguay es apenas un triunfo más de la soja, el dólar, la espada y la cruz.
A group of dedicated individuals decided to educate the public about who Staples makes money from. Leafletting is an important duty and we wanted the public to know that Staples supplies Huntington Life Sciences. HLS tortures animals for corporate profit, not for anything else. Do not let the people be lied to anymore. Spread the word!

Pharaoh Bush - Let My People Go
Considerando las "enormes dificultades" expuestas que debió atravesar James Cason para convencer a tantos "izquierdistas" de allanarse a los intereses del imperio y apoyar al obispo Fernando Lugo, no hay dudas que se ha reivindicado de su fracaso en Cuba y merece cuando menos ser condecorado por George W. Bush con el corazón púrpura. Ya lo dijo Séneca en el primer siglo de nuestra era: Sólo en la fortuna adversa se hallan las grandes lecciones del heroísmo

In the spring of 2007, a retired senior official in the U.S. Justice Department sat before Congress and told a story so odd and ominous, it could have sprung from the pages of a pulp political thriller. It was about a principled bureaucrat struggling to protect his country from a highly classified program with sinister implications. Rife with high drama, it included a car chase through the streets of Washington, D.C., and a tense meeting at the White House, where the president's henchmen made the bureaucrat so nervous that he demanded a neutral witness be present.
In solidarity with all those marking Memorial Day in the US with messages of peace, Wrexham Peace and Justice Forum and Wrexham Women for Peace held a Picnic for Peace in Wrexham's Peace Garden. Meanwhile, in Portland, Oregon, our friend Bridie from Wrexham has read out a message of unity at the Memorial Day service organised by Veterans for Peace Chapter 72 in their Peace Memorial Park. Solidarity across the pond!

Earlier this year, the National Marine Fisheries Services (NMFS) gave wildlife officials in Oregon and Washington permission to trap, relocate, and kill California sea lions on the Columbia river. They did so at the insistence of sport, commercial, and tribal fishermen, who had vociferously demanded the exclusive right to "harvest" all of the salmon available on the Columbia, and did not want to share those salmon with any natural predators, particularly not the sea lions. Immediately, the Humane Society of the United States, the Wild Fish Conservancy, and two individuals who live along the Columbia filed suit in a federal court to stop the killing. While the case has not yet been heard, the 9th circuit court of appeals granted a preliminary injunction to prevent any sea lions from being killed before the case is resolved in court. (At this time, it is scheduled to be heard sometime in September.) The injunction did not stop the States from trapping and removing sea lions, only from killing them.

Utah Phillips, a seminal figure in American folk music who performed extensively and tirelessly for audiences on two continents for 38 years, died Friday of congestive heart failure in Nevada City, California a small town in the Sierra Nevada mountains where he lived for the last 21 years with his wife, Joanna Robinson, a freelance editor.
The following discussion reflects one going on in many places in a variety of forms. Chris Lowe was spurred to write by a comment by Carl Davidson, that leftists shouldn't be criticizing Obama for not organizing a left electoral movement, but that they need to 'get off their butts' and do it themselves. Lowe seems to argue that the way forward is to pull back from the election, or avoid it in the first place, when Davidson argues that the way forward is THROUGH the election, gathering strength along the way. There's lots more to be said, but this is a start.
When progressives are silent
La tensión entre los campesinos paraguayos y los sojeros brasileños radicados en Paraguay ha subido tanto de tono que el jueves pasado se produjo un enfrentamiento con armas de fuego entre ambos bandos en Itapúa, a unos 500 kilómetros al sur de la capital paraguaya.

Tan antagónicas son las visiones históricas de los bandos que hoy siguen disputándose la mentalidad de los latinoamericanos. Mientras unos siguen considerando a Varela y los de su especie como viles bandoleros, invasores y abigeos, los otros ven en su gesta la desaparición del adalid postrero de la patria grande.
That is just one of the questions hovering over a handful of similar sightings at political events in Washington and New York. Some suspect the insectlike drones are high-tech surveillance tools, perhaps deployed by the Department of Homeland Security.
