INDICTMENTS ALLEGING CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY SERVED BY CITIZENS' DELEGATION ON BUSH WHITE HOUSE

TUESDAY

On Tuesday afternoon, a set of 5 indictments of indictments alleging war crimes and crimes against humanity, in five separate areas, on moral, political, and legal grounds were delivered to the front gate of the Bush White House by a delegation organized by the Bush Crimes Commission.

The delegation included former CIA analyst Ray McGovern, authors Larry Everest and William Blum, and members of Progressive Democrats of America, After Downing Street, Code Pink, Democracy Rising, Spirit House, and World Cant WaitDrive Out the Bush Regime.

In front of rolling TV cameras, White House personnel refused to take the indictment papers, first telling the crowd of 40 the reason was "security"; when it was pointed out that the envelope was open and they could verify its contents, they said they were "not authorized to accept any material for the president from the public." In minutes a police hazardous materials squad showed up to examine the plain white envelope left at the gate and carry it off in a plastic bag, eliciting the comment at the press conference, "To a government that commits crimes against humanity, the truth is hazmat."

The indictments (which were also sent by certified mail to the White House, and mailed and hand-delivered to the Department of Justice) allege war crimes and crimes against humanity authorized by the Bush Administration in relation to 5 areas: 1) Wars of Aggression, 2) Torture and Indefinite Detention, 3) Destruction of the Global Environment, 4) Attacks on Global Public Health and Reproductive Rights, 5) Knowing Failure to Protect Life During Hurricane Katrina.

The International Commission of Inquiry's second tribunal will be held at Riverside Church and the Columbia University Law School in New York, January 20-22. Witnesses will include Brig. Gen. Janis Karpinski, former British ambassador Craig Murray, former arms inspector Scott Ritter, journalist Dahr Jamail, and many more. The administration has been offered the opportunity to present a defense. For details, go to www.bushcommission.org.

At least 10 different media organizations or reporters came to the press conference, and Ive done several radio interviews off the press conference.

Village mast fight is lost

WESSINGTON campaigners have lost their fight against a mobile phone mast which they believe is a health risk to their children.

Telecommunications company Orange sparked protests last year in the village when they gained permission for a phone mast near Wessington Primary School.

But after public outcry the company made a second application 250 metres away from the previous location at Nether Green Farm, Moorwood Moor Lane.

Now despite a petition signed by 150 residents against the new application, North East Derbyshire District Council planning committee has approved the application.

A spokeswoman for North East Derbyshire District Council said: "The second application was approved subject to the fact that they don't build the mobile phone mast where they had planned to build previously."

But Scott Brown, of the Three Horsheshoes pub in Wessington, said: "I fear for the future. We don't really know the health risks and more and more reports are beginning to say there is a risk.

"Of about 300 people who live in the village, 150 people signed the petition we feel like we just haven't been listened to.

"At the first meeting a year ago, which we held at the pub, about 15 people who turned up were on the network Orange and they had five bars of signal, so I don't know why we even need a mast here."

A spokesperson from Orange said: "We met with the residents last year and their main concerns were the location as regards to the school.

"We agreed to look at moving the site as we do understand people have a perception that it is a risk to health. We moved it 250 metres away from the previous location and reduced its size by two metres.

"Unfortunately they are still unhappy, but there is a requirement there for the phone mast and we have moved as far away as possible."

Work is to start later in the year.

Alito and his coaches

Village Voice
by James Ridgeway with Michael Roston

01/10/06

In the first hours of Samuel Alito's Senate confirmation hearings on Monday, Judiciary Committee member Lindsey Graham, the Republican senator from South Carolina, may very well have irreparably compromised himself. At the hearing, Graham told Alito, nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court, that he had already decided in Alito's favor. 'I don't know what kind of vote you're going to get, but you'll make it through. It's possible you could talk me out of voting for you, but I doubt it. So I won't even try to challenge you along those lines.' That certainly ought to be the case. Graham is one of a group of Republicans who have been coaching Alito behind the scenes. ... The coaching session for Alito has raised a few eyebrows. 'Coaching a judicial nominee behind-the-scenes is not the proper role for a Judiciary Committee member who must subsequently sit in judgment on that nominee,' writes Think Progress, a project of the American Progress Action Fund. 'It could be a violation of the ethical duties of a senator'...

Statt möglichst viele Arbeitsplätze schaffen zu wollen, ist es nach Ansicht mehrerer Soziologen sinnvoller, allen Bürgern ein "bedingsloses existenzsichernendes Grundeinkommen" zu zahlen. Arbeitslosigkeit sei kein Zeichen von Armut, sondern vielmehr ein Ausdruck gesellschaftlichen Wohlstands, so Sascha Liebermann, wissenschaftlicher Assistent an der Uni Dortmund und Mitbegründer der Initiative "Freiheit statt Vollbeschäftigung". Statt das Schaffen von Arbeitsplätzen zum Selbstzweck zu erheben, müsse der erste Zweck politischen Handelns sein, Freiheit zu ermöglichen und Leistung zu fördern - durch ein Grundeinkommen für alle. Dadurch würden alle gegenwärtigen Transfersysteme überflüssig.

A formula for slaughter

Mother Jones
by Michael Schwartz

01/11/06

One reason the Hopkins study did not generate sustained outrage is that the researchers did not explain how the occupation had managed to kill so many people so quickly -- about 1,000 each week in the first 14 months of the war. This may reflect our sense that carnage at such elevated levels requires a series of barbaric acts of mass slaughter and/or huge battles that would account for staggering numbers of Iraqis killed. With the exception of the battle of Falluja, these sorts of high-profile events have simply not occurred in Iraq. But the Iraq war is a twenty-first century war and so the miracle of modern weaponry allows the U.S. military to kill scores of Iraqis (and wound many more) during a routine day's work, made up of small skirmishes triggered by roadside bombs, sniper attacks, and American foot patrols...

Since when does an 81-year-old retired University of Kansas history professor, corresponding with a devout Catholic retired Filipino history professor, pose a threat to the national security of the United States? Of course, the answer is never. However, the fact the Ministry of Homeland Security opened Grant Goodman's mail has nothing to do with national security or 'al-Qaeda' and it has everything to do with sending a message -- we live in a police state here in America, a one-time constitutional republic where the authorities can and will snoop not only your mail but your telephone, email, web destinations, credit card statement, bank transaction records, library checkout information, etc., ad nauseam.

Media bird flu scare fake?

Free Market News Network
by Steve Trinward

01/10/06

Once again, the Fox News/Web MD headline is ambiguous at best, if not downright misleading: 'Bird Flu May Pass From Poultry to Human Easier Than Expected.' The story begins with accounts of new avian flu cases in humans, now spreading to parts of Turkey, where three children from the same family have died, with two of them so far confirmed with the H5N1 bird flu virus. ... However, deeper into the story, it is revealed that, with regard to the Turkish children, at least: 'According to news reports, a doctor who treated those children speculated that the kids had probably caught the virus by playing with dead chickens.' ... In other words, we are still dealing with a virus that only seems to pass from birds to humans if those humans physically handle dead or diseased birds. So the way to stop the avian flu from spreading is to stop people from picking up dead birds, or playing with diseased chickens, and to develop inoculations (or better yet, aerosol sprays) that can stop the spread of H5N1 among the birds themselves!

Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay tried to pressure the Bush administration into shutting down an Indian-owned casino that lobbyist Jack Abramoff wanted closed -- shortly after a tribal client of Abramoff's donated to a DeLay political action committee, The Associated Press has learned. The Texas Republican demanded closure of the casino, owned by the Alabama-Coushatta tribe of Texas, in a Dec. 11, 2001 letter to then-Attorney General John Ashcroft. The Associated Press obtained the letter from a source who did not want to be identified because of an ongoing federal investigation of Abramoff and members of Congress...

Seit längerem hätten ihm Anfragen aus Princeton in der Nähe von New York und Harvard im US-Bundesstaat Massachusetts vorgelegen, heißt es in dem Bericht weiter. Fischer könne kein Abitur vorweisen und sei nie regulär an einer Universität eingeschrieben gewesen. Er verhandele zudem noch mit einem US-Forschungsinstitut über eine Mitarbeit im Bereich der Außenpolitik.

Dabei solle erörtert werden, welche Fragen sich als wichtig erwiesen hätten und welche weniger bedeutsam seien. Auch für neue Fragen oder Themen sei die Landesregierung offen.

Bisher werde die Anwendung dieser Technik durch ein Moratorium der Biodiversitätskonvention verhindert. Doch dieses sei in Gefahr.

Bundeskanzlerin Angela Merkel will den anhaltenden Streit über die weitere Nutzung der Atomkraft erst nach den Landtagswahlen im März lösen. Bei einem Energiegipfel Anfang April wolle die Bundesregierung ein energiepolitisches "Gesamtkonzept" entwickeln, das "weit über die bislang diskutierten Einzelaspekte hinaus" gehe, sagte Merkel am Dienstag in Berlin nach der Klausurtagung der Bundesregierung im brandenburgischen Genshagen. Ziel sei es, zunächst mit den "Akteuren" der Energiebranche zu sprechen. Ursprünglich war der Energiegipfel für März geplant. Der baden-württembergische Ministerpräsident Günther Oettinger forderte erneut, die Laufzeit der Kernkraftwerke zu verlängern. Er warb zugleich für erneuerbare Energien und für das Sparen von Energie. Der BUND warf dem Ministerpräsidenten hingegen vor, er betreibe eine vordergründige PR-Kampagne pro Atomkraft und verschlafe den "Umbau der Energiewirtschaft".

Boykottiert, was Euch kaputt macht!

Kleine Boykottkunde von Wilfried Schwetz, Teil I, erschienen im express, Zeitschrift für sozialistische Betriebs- und Gewerkschaftsarbeit, 11-12/05.
http://www.labournet.de/diskussion/gewerkschaft/erfahrung/schwetz.html

Aus dem Text: „In der letzten Zeit wurde häufiger die Frage diskutiert, inwieweit die Konsumenten Einfluss auf Unternehmensentscheidungen nehmen können und ob Boykotte ein Beitrag zur Verteidigung von Sozialstandards und Arbeitsplätzen sein können. Die Frage von Konsumentenboykotten taucht regelmäßig im Zusammenhang mit Vorgängen wie denen um Lidl auf, ohne jedoch zu einer intensiveren Debatte in Gewerkschaftskreisen geführt zu haben. Diese seltsame Scheu Boykottaktionen gegenüber ist erstaunlich, hängt möglicherweise jedoch mit einem zu geringem Wissen über ihre rechtlichen Rahmenbedingungen, d.h. der Angst vor Kriminalisierung zusammen sowie mit der wenig ausgeprägten Vorstellung, wie Boykotte als Kampfmittel in Arbeits- und Sozialkonflikten eingesetzt werden können. Ein genauerer Blick auf die rechtliche Seite wie auch die Aufklärung über verschiedene Boykottformen könnten die Diskussion voranbringen. Auf beide Gesichtspunkte soll im Folgenden genauer eingegangen werden, bevor ich abschließend eine Bewertung ihrer möglichen gewerkschaftlichen Relevanz versuchen möchte…“

Alito's Fantasy World

Kate Michelman says that Senators should reach across party and ideological lines to reject the Alito nomination, not because we think he will vote to overturn Roe, but because we know he will not respect the dignity and autonomy that are a central part of what it means to be American - for all of us.

Alito's "Coaches" May Have Violated Senate Ethics Code

On Thursday, Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, one of the "gang of 14" who sits on Judiciary, joined a so-called moot court session at the White House. The coaching session for Alito has raised a few eyebrows. "Coaching a judicial nominee behind-the-scenes is not the proper role for a Judiciary Committee member who must subsequently sit in judgment on that nominee," writes Think Progress, a project of the American Progress Action Fund. "It could be a violation of the ethical duties of a senator."

Help protect endangered whales from new sonar assault

There is an emerging threat to whales that demands your immediate action.

The U.S. Navy wants to put a testing ground for lethal mid-frequency sonar along the migratory path of highly endangered northern right whales, off the coast of North Carolina.

Please act today to protect the whales and other marine life of this offshore refuge from a year-round barrage of deadly, ear-splitting noise.

Go to
http://www.savebiogems.org/whales/takeaction.asp?
and urge the Navy to consider less sensitive locations for its sonar training range.

As the site of more than 160 exercises annually, the Navy's proposed testing range would create a 500-square-mile hub of year-round sonar activity and other intense underwater noise. The range would lie along the migratory route of endangered right whales, fewer than 400 of which are believed to exist today.

Just one year ago, 37 whales of three different species beached themselves on the shores of the Outer Banks, near the proposed testing range, following Navy sonar exercises in the area. Scientists have linked the use of high-intensity sonar to numerous other mass strandings of whales around the globe, from the Bahamas to the Canary Islands to Japan. Yet, incredibly, the Navy's analysis of its proposed testing range does not even mention, much less thoroughly examine, this stranding.

Beached whales have been found bleeding around their brains and ears after encounters with this lethal technology.

Military sonar may also be interfering with the ability of these majestic creatures to locate food, avoid predators and mate.

Please go to
http://www.savebiogems.org/whales/takeaction.asp?
and tell the Navy to carefully consider all the alternatives before proceeding with sonar exercises in this spectacular whale habitat.

Or, to make an even bigger impact, compose your own letter -- using the points in our standard letter -- and mail or fax it no later than January 30 to:

Keith Jenkins
Naval Facilities Engineering Command Atlantic Mail Code EV21KJ
6506 Hampton Boulevard Norfolk, VA 23508
Fax: 757-322-4894

Thank you for helping to protect endangered whales from the lethal effects of military sonar.

Sincerely,

Frances Beinecke
