Muslim Innocence Project Convening

by Muslim Innocence Project 
Muslims have been unfairly treated by the Bush Administration since 911. There have been many unjust prosecutions involving guilt by association, innuendo and twisted sting operations designed to entrap those the government has decided it doesn’t like.
These cases have trampled the constitutional rights of the defendants and put us all at risk. Come learn about a few of these cases and participate in discussion of where to go from here.

Cracking the Pentagon Propaganda Code

CMD Cracks Open the Pentagon Propaganda Documents 
by Center for Media and Democracy
In early 2002, the Pentagon began cultivating retired military officers who frequently serve as media commentators to help make the case for invading Iraq.
The pundit program continued -- promoting the Bush administration's stance on the Guantanamo Bay detention center, warrantless wiretapping and other controversial issues -- until New York Times reporter David Barstow exposed its existence in April 2008.

Fairly Unbalanced: 'Wild Earth' and Public Eye

Wild Earth in the Public Eye
by Zoe Blunt
Last week, I took a call from Public Eye Online editor Sean Holman about the upcoming Wild Earth eco-conference in Bella Coola. Holman suggested it wasn't "appropriate" to invite anti-poverty activist Thomas Malenfant to host a workshop on Resisting the Olympics at a gathering focused on discussing non-violent activism.

Referring to Malenfant's arrest last year for symbolically evicting the Premier from his Vancouver office, Holman asked why a "convicted criminal" was on the schedule for Wild Earth.

I reminded him that a convicted criminal is running the province, and asked what kind of double standard Holman is trying to invoke. The suggestion that Malenfant should not be allowed to discuss his political work and experience is ridiculous and insulting.

Klein: China and Disaster Cap.

China new disaster-capitalism trough
Naomi Klein: Billions of dollars spent on Olympic security, China buys tools of war on terror (2 of 4)
by The Real News
Naomi Klein: Iraq was the trough for awhile. The Department of Homeland Security has been a pretty good trough. Building Fortress Europe has been a good trough. And what I mean by public money that is just transferred to private corporations in the name of fighting an endless war on terror. And we see it in this feeding frenzy around the world. The Green Zone is sort of, maybe, the epicenter of this feeding frenzy.

But China is the new trough, because basically what the government in Beijing has said is,
  • "We will spend whatever it takes to secure our country, and we want the latest technology and the best toys."

The Kremlin Surge

Marching Through Georgia II: The Kremlin Surge
by Chris Floyd     
As events move swiftly, and ominously, in the conflict between Georgia and Russia, an understanding of the background of the conflict is essential. Several pieces have appeared just today providing some good context and analysis.

First, Ellen Barry (with whom I once worked at the Moscow Times) gives an overview of South Ossetia's history and the tensions that have stalked the region since the break-up of the Soviet Union in this analysis piece from the New York Times. (The NYT's news roundup of the latest events  is co-written by Anne Barnard, yet another former colleague from the Moscow Times.)

“Mad Scientist” Ivins, and Other 9/11 Legends

The “Mad Scientist” Ivins, and Other 9/11 Legends
by Sander Hicks
As the sun begins to set on the tyrannical Bush/Cheney Administration, a “culprit” for the anthrax attacks has been dropped on us. The government has produced the dead body of “mad scientist” Bruce Ivins, the way a smiling cat produces a mouse carcass.
This new lone assassin story holds together quite well: as long as you look only at it, and not at any of the other grisly details about US government involvement in anthrax.

Naomi Klein on China and the Olympics: "Security, central planning, surveillance state is an ideal cocoon for global capitalism" 
by The Real News
Naomi Klein: "I think this is an incredibly efficient, actually, a scarily efficient way of organizing society that's actually being celebrated here, which is a hybrid of some of the worst elements of authoritarian communism—mass surveillance of the population, total lack of civil liberties, lack of a free press, lack of democratic rights, authoritarian central planning, all harnessed not to advance the goals of social justice, even in name, although there may be some lip service still paid to that, but to advance the goals of global capitalism.
So it is Stalinism meets global capitalism.... There are 100,000 security officers just on Olympic duty. And to put that into perspective, the stadium itself, the Bird's Nest Stadium holds 90,000. So there's 90,000 spectators and 100,000 secret police keeping control of things in Beijing. So this is an incredible operation. But when you hear people like Lou Dobbs and other commentators talking about the problems in China, it's always red China, communist China, or the Chi-coms. And it's really this blast from the past of—you know, it's almost as if the Cold War never ended."

School for the Poor threatened in Haiti

Children's School for the Poor threatened in Haiti
by Haiti Information Project (HIP)
The official school year in Haiti begins again in September. Always a difficult time for parents in Haiti who have to scramble tirelessly to find money for their children's education, it is also a time of renewal and hope for the future.
Despite the hard-pressed reality of grinding poverty, Haiti's children start school with renewed enthusiasm each year as they walk for miles down dusty roads in neatly starched uniforms in their pursuit of an education.
Unfortunately, more than 450 of the poorest students in the community of Pétion-Ville may not have a school to go this year if the current mayor, Lydie Parent, has her way.
The mayor has, according to the teachers, administrators and parents of a school for Pétion-Ville's poorest children, ignored a legally binding lease for their school's current location and has begun strong-arm tactics in an effort to evict them.
