Court Pitches Out Dumpster Diving Case

Court Pitches Out Dumpster Diving Case
by Andrew Ainsley
On January 20, 2006, I filmed two homeless men in a dumpster
who were trying to find food to eat.  I was never on the property
and was only there to document the plight of homeless people in
Victoria.
 
Today, the Crown stayed the charges.  I am, and always have been, an innocent man.  The stay of the charges against me is
confirmation of my innocence.

Memorial Day: You Must Remember This

My Memorial Day
by Mickey Z.
Yet another Memorial Day is upon us, and our president sez: "No group has ever done more to defend liberty than the men and women of the United States armed forces."
 
This simple reality presents me with a genuine conundrum:
 
"How in the world can I pick which indomitable defenders of liberty to honor this year?"

Those Pesky Mohawks in the Way Again

HAUDENOSAUNEE EAGLES KEEP WATCH OVER CANADA'S AERIAL WARFARE: Those Pesky Mohawks in the Way Again
by IAKOHA'KO:WA
On May 12, 2008 Canada announced a $30 billion 20-year War plan to expand and modernize the Canadian military. 
 
This is an increased military budget above the annual $9 billion already in place. 
 
Canada intends to recruit more soldiers, build more bases, modernize all its equipment and make sure they have lots of socks, batteries and spare engine parts to wage perpetual war in grand style alongside their buddies.

'War Crimes' & Misdemeanors

Bush's 'War Crimes' & Misdemeanors
by Robert Parry
Facing a tough reelection fight in 2004, George W. Bush expressed outrage over leaked photos showing U.S. military police at Iraq’s Abu Ghraib prison abusing detainees, who were paraded naked before female guards, threatened by attack dogs, chained in “stress positions” and forced to wear ladies underpants on their heads.

President Bush assured the American people that he “shared a deep disgust that those prisoners were treated the way they were treated.” Other administration officials pinned the blame on a “few bad apples” and dismissed the prison guards’ claim that they were told to “soften up” the detainees for interrogation. 
Now, a report by the Justice Department’s Inspector General reveals that months before those abuses at Abu Ghraib, nearly identical tactics were used against “war on terror” detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and at CIA prisons – and that FBI complaints about the tactics went up the chain of command back to Washington.

Utah Takes the Last Train

Bruce U. Utah Phillips
by Chris Chandler
In a matter of a few minutes Anne Feeney phoned me from an airport in Houston. Al Grierson's "Lonely Deadhead Box-Car" was playing on Random on my iPod. After our conversation, I went to check my email. Jim Page was singing "Anna Mae." I had an email from Jim. I have pasted it below. As I read it Utah sang "All Used Up." As I responded to Jim's Email Arlo Guthrie sang "Hobo's Lullaby."
 

In the night of May 23, 2008, Bruce Duncan Phillips died in great peace, asleep in his bed in Nevada City, California, with his wife Joanna by his side.
 
Amazingly, at the very same instant that the scholar Bruce Phillips finally discovered his angle of repose, U. Utah Phillips flagged a westbound freight train. Yes, a mighty fast rattler, on a long west-bound track. He needed no ticket, he was welcomed on board.

Vikings and Samurai: Rogue Whalers Defy Moratorium

Viking and Samurai Whale Killers Defy International Law
by Capt. Paul Watson
Without warning the Icelandic government authorized Icelandic whalers to begin their killing on May 20th in direct defiance of the global moratorium on commercial whaling.

 
Iceland has rejoined the trinity of whale killing nations along with Japan and Norway. The three rogue whale killing nations have thumbed their noses at the international community to continue a criminal barbaric practice that has been outlawed under international law.

John McCain's Imagined Presidency

The Prophesies of John McCain: Ambition Makes Fools of Us All
by Jack Random
While on the campaign trail in Ohio, candidate John McCain allowed his followers a glance in the looking glass through the prism of his ambition, boldly predicting victory and a functioning democracy in Iraq, stabilization in Afghanistan, the capture or killing of Osama bin Laden, the disarming of Iran and North Korea, dominance of the world’s democracies over China and Russia, an open and non-political White House, an end to signing statements, more “accessible” health care, improved public education, a secure border, reduced greenhouse gas emissions and several years of “robust economic growth.”  

Smiling as if the words themselves were a fait accompli, McCain declared “there has still not been a major terrorist attack in the United States since September 11, 2001.”

Coexistence, Not Apartheid

Coexistence, Not Apartheid
by Ramzy Baroud
For the last 60 years, all those who have sought a genuinely peaceful and fair solution for Israel and Palestine have faced the same obstacle — Israel's sense of invincibility and military arrogance, abetted by the US and other Western governments' unwavering support.

Despite recent setbacks on the military front, the Israeli government is yet to awaken to the reality that Israel is simply not invincible. The wheel of history, which has seen the rise and fall of many great powers, won't grind to a halt. Experiences have also repeatedly shown that neither Israel's nuclear arms nor Washington's billions of dollars in annual funds could create 'security' for the former.

George W. Bush a Crowned Anarchist?

Is George W. Bush a Crowned Anarchist?        
by Roland Michel Tremblay
It is strange that I wrote a whole book called Destructivism, The Path to Self-Destruction, without first addressing the one subject people are most likely to accuse me of in time, the one of being an anarchist talking about anarchy.
 
It did not cross my mind to write about anarchy, because I never thought I was an anarchist. I realise now that perhaps I was an anarchist in the closet, and maybe it is time I do my coming out and just admit it, as I witness the world we live in going in frightening directions.
