Stand Up for Independent Journalism

Yesterday, police in St. Paul arrested several journalists, including Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman and an AP photographer as they were covering protests of the Republican National Convention.

Amy Goodman and others were released last night, but the story is not over.

We need you to cosign our public letter demanding that press intimidation cease immediately, and that all charges be dropped. It will be delivered immediately to St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman, the RNC Host Committee and the local prosecuting attorneys. We need 10,000 signatures in the next 24 hours, so please take action now:

Sign the Letter: Drop All Charges Against Journalists

In addition to these arrests, police with firearms drawn raided a meeting of the video journalists' group I-Witness and arrested independent media, bloggers and videomakers. We’re also receiving late-breaking reports of other arrests.

By signing this letter, you’re sending a powerful message: Officials must rein in aggressive and violent tactics by local law enforcement, stop the targeting of journalists and immediately drop all charges against them.

Reporting by independent journalists is vital...

Why Impeach ?

June 24, 2008

.
There is no argument that is the least bit logical to support not impeaching.

If you have read even a small portion of those Articles of Impeachment (and those do not list nearly all the reasons to impeach), you will see the extreme danger we are in. Let us not forget that precedence is being set and the next President could do much worse and then the next could get even worse.

We have laws. We have to keep our employees (the President is our employee NOT our ruler, king or emperor) from breaking the law, damaging our Constitution or breaking international treaties, all of which Bush and several others in our government have and are doing.

The argument that with Bush impeached, we will end up with Cheney in office means nothing. First, we already also have articles of impeachment that have been introduced against Cheney, and second, the congress and our military would be much less apt to follow illegal orders from Cheney to attack Iran if we are in the middle of impeaching Bush.

As for the time it will take to impeach Bush....it could take one day, we have enough evidence on video tape of...

Bahamas.com Crys Sovereign Immunity!

June 20, 2008

(Petition at bottom of article, please sign) 

 

The official and one of the largest sellers of vacations to the Bahamas, www.bahamas.com crys Sovereign Immunity in a Florida Courtroom yesterday!

Bahamas.com is a travel sales agency of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas, ran by their Ministry of Tourism. The Bahamian government let it thousands upon thousands of foreign workers without doing immigration procedures on them, without issueing work permits, and is housing them inside hotels with tourists, unregistered. Construction will go on for ten years all over the Bahamas and still at this same place. 

Confronted in a courtroom by crime victims that purchased a vacation package from them and soon after were hurt, they cry Immunity to the Judge this week! An American woman was drugged, raped all night, knife held to her throat inside the hotel that Bahamas.com sold them the package to by some of these same construction workers. The Ministry of Tourism will not take responsibility for their improper sales to customers. These same crime victims were told by police in the Bahamas and many other officials that they had done this and therefore they could not find the men, even though they were still living at the hotel...

June 10, 2008

Here is some info from Kucinich (this site here is just sharing the info, you must sign up with the original site and source to get updates!) 

 

Articles of Impeachment

Dear Friend:

Under circumstances that can best be described as "suspicious," the www.kucinich.us website was crippled early this morning a few hours after Congressman Dennis Kucinich introduced 35 extensively documented Articles of Impeachment against President George W. Bush.

Until we can restore the website and implement additional security measures, you can find the full list and detailed Articles at
http://www.democrats.com/files/amomentoftruth.pdf
and  http://chun.afterdowningstreet.org/amomentoftruth.pdf

If you would like to show your support for the Congressman's efforts, please go to myinfo.kucinich.us to offer your comments and provide us with contact information so that we can continue to keep you informed.

Thank you
Committee to Re-Elect Congressman Kucinich

Agrofuels on Stolen Lands Continue to Threaten Colombian Rainforests and Communities

May 7, 2008


Agrofuels on Stolen Lands Continue to Threaten Colombian
Rainforests and Communities

By Ecological Internet, http://www.ecologicalinternet.org/
May 6, 2008

TAKE ACTION
It is gravely unethical and ecologically devastating to
expand production of biofuels by allowing land to be stolen
from local Afro-Colombian communities; and at the expense of
Colombia's ancient primary rainforests, food security, water
resources and regional climate

http://www.rainforestportal.com/alerts/send.asp?id=colombia_biofuel

Plantation expansion for agrofuels remains a major threat to
the lives, livelihoods and the environment of Afro-Colombian
and other peasant communities in Chocó, Colombia. This is one
of the world's most biodiverse regions, with large areas of
rainforest now facing destruction. The Chocó rainforests are
home to 7,000 to 8,000 species, including 2,000 endemic plant
species and 100 endemic bird species. Even before the current
palm oil and agrofuel expansion, 66% had been destroyed.
Communities and rainforests are under threat from palm oil
and sugar cane expansion for agrofuels in other parts of
Colombia, too, for example around Tumaco, near the border
with Ecuador, in Santander and in Magdalena. If agrofuels --
growing food for fuel -- continue to expand in Colombia, food
prices are bound to rise and the nation's food security erode
as is happening around the world. Please...

War Propaganda, Govenrment planted "salesmen" for the war !

May 5, 2008

 

Fox News: Military Analysist

The Pentagon is infiltrating the media with pro-war propaganda.

Take Action Now

Watch the Video

 

We're seeing the first cracks in the White House's scheme to spread pro-war propaganda via corporate media. One more push will break this scandal wide open.

Late last month, the New York Times exposed a shady Pentagon program to embed up to 75 "propaganda pundits" on every major news network. These so-called experts went on the air to cover up bad news about Iraq with White House spin.

Sen. George Voinovich sits on an influential committee that could hold hearings and investigate whether this “selling of the war” violates federal law. It is crucial that your elected officials hear from you now.

Urge Senator Voinovich: Investigate the Propaganda Pundits

Since the story broke in the Times, nearly 30,000 Free Press activists have sent letters to Congress. Sens. John Kerry (D-Mass.), Carl Levin (D-Mich.), and Russ Feingold (D-Wis.) have already responded, calling for a full investigation. In the House, Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) has gathered more than 40 other representatives to demand answers from the Pentagon.

By sending a letter to your elected officials, you're helping end years of media distortion...

Vital Public Meeting Tuesday 3/18 in Piketon

March 17, 2008

This alert is from www.OhioNeighbors.org

if you want alerts from them, sign up there or below.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>.>>

 

Vital Public Meeting Tuesday 3/18 in Piketon

 

Dear Friends of SONG,

Last March, more than 300 of you responded to our appeal to turn out for a crucial public hearing held by the U.S. Department of Energy to protest a plan to turn Piketon into a massive storage dump for high-level nuclear waste.

We need your attendance again at a vital public meeting this Tuesday, March 18, at Piketon, at the same location. (Details below.)

Because of YOUR turnout last year and other activism, the GNEP plan was stalled. Congress radically cut GNEP funding, DOE has indefinitely delayed any siting decisions, and the Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement due last summer is still not issued. Once a new administration takes office, GNEP likely will be dead. Thank you for helping us show that ordinary citizens do still have some power in America!


However, the demise of GNEP creates other problems at Piketon. Because DOE had planned to pack the old process buildings with spent fuel, they did not plan for cleanup of the site, and did not charter a Citizens Advisory... [More]

Admiral Fallon Fired To Clear Way For WW3, And Only Impeachment Can Save Us Now

March 15, 2008

Before anything else, if you are going to the Take Back America
Conference next week, and would like to share a room with someone to
save some bucks, please email us immediately because we are helping
to match people up.
 
Exactly what we had feared most, and had predicted, has happened.
Admiral Fallon, the man who famously said that an attack on Iran
would "not happen on my watch" was just "retired". Now, he is no
longer on the watch. And they are absolutely planning to start a war
with Iran and World War 3, against all strategic wisdom. And they are
absolutely planning on doing it before the next general election.
Indeed, they will mostly likely do it for the PURPOSE of tilting that
election, unless they are stopped first by impeachment.
 
We have one and only one hope.
 
Congress must immediately commence impeachment proceedings against
both Dick Cheney and George Bush, the shadow emperor and his
ventriloquist dummy.
 
And only one dynamic can force Congress to stand up for itself, the
impeachment based primary challenges now ongoing, and in particular
Shirley Golub's challenge to the speaker of the house herself, the
primary impediment to...

Crucial Week for Impeachment: Honk to Impeach!

February 17, 2008

You can sign up for updates like this from them. The link is at the bottom of this email I recieved from Democrats.com

 


Something very important happened in Congress on Thursday,
thanks to all of your emails and calls. After 7 years of cowering
in fear of every dictatorial demand from Bush and Cheney,
House Democrats finally rose up and said NO.
First, House Democrats refused to give immunity to the
telecom giants for illegally wiretapping the calls and emails
of every American - despite two Bush press conference
hissyfits and endless Corporate Media lies.
 
Second, House Democrats declared Harriet Miers and
Josh Bolten to be in contempt of Congress for rejecting
subpoenas to testify about the U.S. Attorney scandal,
despite a faux-angry walkout by Republicans.
 
Could this be the start of holding George Bush and
Dick Cheney accountable for their innumerable High
Crimes, ultimately through impeachment?
The main problem we face is time. Since this is an
election year, Congress will stop legislating and
start campaigning full-time in May. Since impeachment
hearings take time, those hearings must begin now.
Thanks to your emails and calls, 18...

House Democrats Hold Bush Officials in Criminal Contempt

February 15, 2008

Today, thanks in great part to your advocacy and persistence, the House of Representatives took a major, tangible step towards holding the Bush Administration accountable.

In a vote on the House floor, we acted to enforce the law and our Constitution, and hold former White House Counsel Harriet Miers and White House Chief of Staff Josh Bolten in Contempt of Congress. (Please click here to watch my speech on the House Floor calling for contempt.)

Bolten and Miers have ignored congressional subpoenas for nine months and thumbed their noses at Congress and the American people.

Executive privilege has never permitted officials to avoid appearing altogether when subpoenaed. This behavior is unprecedented and outrageous.

Now, these two renegade officials must face up to their blatant disregard of the law and constitution.

Our message of accountability for Bush/Cheney is finally resonating on Capitol Hill.

Judiciary Chairman John Conyers fought hard to bring this to a vote, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi herself took the floor to support contempt.

While Democrats may not all agree on how to press this Administration, one thing is clear:

Today, Congress has asserted its rights under the Constitution.

We must not back down.

We must never...
