I could see the present situation coming some 20 years ago. Then there was a very good chance that gentle and reasoned persuasion would turn the industrial-military "civilization" around.

Now, the situation is desparate. There is a possibility that the fractal array of self regulating systems, embodied in the Gaia hypothesis/belief, has been pushed beyond the Lambda point (that which marks the boundary between strange attractor land and chaos).

There is a slim chance, and one worth entertaining, thought the prospect is hardly so, that the Lambda point though alarmingly nigh, has not ben reached.

Such a desparate situation demends desperate remedies. If we and the remaining abused and exploited animal and plant life are to survive, there MUST be an immediate shut down of 90% of the extractive, squandering, pollutng and poisoning industrial and military installations and establishments, however much we may depend on them, for our undeserved comfort. They must not be thrown away by our somnambulistic purblind greed and acquiescience. There are solutions to this, though hard ones.

Protests Stop Military Recruiting as Antiwar Demonstrators Protest on Second Anniversary of Iraq War; 30 Arrested

March 19, 2005 - Armed Forces recruiting centers in Brooklyn, Manhattan and the Bronx were transformed into centers of protest today as scores of antiwar protesters set life-size coffins at their entrances or blocked their doors.

At about 11:00 this morning, when the Bronx Army-Navy-Air Force-Marine Corps center would ordinarily have been conducting business at Fordham Road and the Grand Concourse, six life-sized coffins representing U.S. and Iraqi casualties of the Iraq war were lined up next to the entrance to the center. About 60 demonstrators held a vigil in front of the building, handing out antiwar leaflets to passers by in the busy Bronx shopping area.

A little later, in Brooklyn and Manhattan, some 300 protesters converged on each of the recruiting centers on Flatbush Avenue and at Times Square. Some two dozen conducted a symbolic die-in in the street in front of the Times Square station, where 24 were arrested. Another eight people were arrested in Brooklyn for blocking the doors of the Flatbush Avenue recruiting center. No one was arrested in the Bronx because, with the center closed for business, there was no one to ask the protesters to leave. They stood peacefully in front of the building, handing out leaflets and reading out the names of U.S. armed forces members from the Bronx who have died in Iraq.

The demonstrations in New York City were three of hundreds of protests at recruiting centers across the nation called by peace and justice groups to mark the second anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq. Each demonstration was preceded by a solemn procession carrying the coffins to the recruiting site.

Shortly before the demonstrations, Frida Berrigan, an organizer with WRL later arrested in Times Square, explained the significance of the coffins: "We carry coffins representing the more than 1,500 American soldiers who have died and. Some coffins are draped in black fabric to represent the more than 100,000 Iraqis who have been killed and others are draped with the American flag to represent the 1,512 American soldiers killed so far. The White House has tried to hide these deaths from the American people, but the sorrow will not be silent."

Long-time War Resisters League activist Ruth Benn, arrested in Brooklyn, added, "We march to military recruiting stations throughout the city today to demand an end to the wasting of young lives in war. We counsel young people to consider alternative paths to jobs and education." She predicted that "many of us will put our bodies between the recruiting stations and the young people they want to use as war fodder. We will shut them down."

Organized by the New York City War Resisters League, these events were just a few of the more than 750 actions taking place in all 50 states today. Sponsoring organizations include United for Peace and Justice, Veterans for Peace, Socialist Party USA, Voices in the Wilderness, Brooklyn Parents for Peace, Park Slope Greens, Catholic Worker, Code Pink, Not in Our Name, Ya-Ya Network, Socialist Party of NYC, Industrial Workers of the World (NYC GMB), One Thousand Coffins, Grandmothers Against the War, Progressive Programmers League, Kairos Community, World War III Arts in Action, among other organizations.

The War Resisters League is an 81-year-old secular pacifist organization, headquartered in New York City, and is affiliated with the War Resisters' International, which is based in London. WRL believes war to be a crime against humanity, and advocates Gandhian nonviolence as the method for creating a democratic society free of war, racism, sexism, and human exploitation.

Tie a Green Ribbon - Unite Around the Arctic Refuge

America's Arctic Refuge is in danger. This week, oil interests came one step closer to ruining the wild coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge with sprawling oil development. In a backdoor scheme cooked up by drilling proponents, the U.S. Senate has included language in the Federal Budget that could remove protections prohibiting oil development in the biological heart of the Refuge. But the fight is far from over!

Make a statement today. Show your solidarity for America's Arctic Refuge with a visible symbol -- a green ribbon. Tie it in your yard, hang it on your home, pin it on your clothes or wear it around your wrist. Then pass it on. Give ribbons to your friends and family.

Millions of Americans feel strongly about this issue -- and together we will NOT be ignored. Show your support until Congress assures us that the Arctic Refuge is safe from oil drills.

Why This Will Work

Millions of Americans have made it plain that they want the Arctic Refuge protected and yet some members of Congress continue to ignore us. It's time to step up the pressure.

When your Members of Congress come home for recess they will see green ribbons on every street. Strangers who know nothing about the Arctic Refuge will ask about your ribbon and you'll tell them. Soon green ribbons will be tied in neighborhoods across the country, news media in every state will take notice, and Congress will not be able to ignore us.

We are counting on YOU to spread the word. Forward this message to your friends and family. Then buy a spool of ribbon and hand out ribbons to everyone you know -- at work, at church, and everywhere you go! It's easy!

Stand up for wildlife and America's wild places and tell oil interests that they have crossed the line. Don't sit quietly while our wild heritage is sold to Big Oil.

Political Update

The House passed its Budget measure last night, 218-214. It did not include any explicit language about Arctic oil drilling. But it does contain instructions to other committees that create a loophole for drilling language to be included. The extremely close nature of the vote offers hope to conservationists as responsibility for the budget moves to a House/Senate conference committee.

Both the Senate and the House have left for a two-week spring recess, returning to work April 4th .

During recess, congressional staff members will begin preparing for the Budget Conference Committee, a process that reconciles differences between the House and Senate Budget bills in order to present a single Budget for a final vote by both houses.

Arctic activists are planning events in several, targeted home districts. The political message during this time: Please vote against any conference report that would instruct committees to pass Arctic drilling as part of the Budget bill.

What You Can Do

Wear your green ribbons, and decorate freely with them. Make an appointment with your member of Congress and Senators and carry them the message that the Budget conference bill must not contain language that would open the Arctic Refuge to oil drilling.

[...] In spite of the public's deep concerns about government secrecy, since 1998 federal departments have filled fewer Freedom of Information Act requests in full -- while the number of requests for information has risen steadily, especially following the Sept. 11 attacks.

The government met the increased demand with unprecedented resistance. After 9/11, former Attorney General John Ashcroft and White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card issued memos suggesting that agencies be more careful in granting FOIA requests; they cited national security concerns. Since then, the government has also pulled many documents off its Web sites, creating14 million new classified documents in 2003 -- a large increase over 2001. Now, access even to the safety records of a natural gas plant in a small American town can be denied. [...] Read the rest at: //tinyurl.com/59pt3

Justice: Propaganda is A-OK

Must the U.S. government reveal when it has produced "news" broadcasts? In a stunning rebuke of the GAO, the Justice Department says no.

By Eric Boehlert

Salon, March 16, 2005

Democrats aren't the only ones angered by the Justice Department's memo to federal agencies on March 11 telling them to ignore a key finding by the Government Accountability Office. The GAO has declared that video news releases -- or prepackaged TV segments -- that fail to reveal they were produced by the government constitute illegal propaganda. "It's highly unusual for the Justice Department to take this action. Sending out a memo may be unprecedented," says David Walker, comptroller general of the United States and head of the GAO. He adds, "The Justice Department is not independent on this matter."

Department spokesman Kevin Madden could not say how common the issuance of a memo was, but noted that because GAO findings are nonbinding, the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel has final say over executive branch legal matters. [...] Read the rest at:

Bush officials have always been eager to pose as the tough guys willing to make the tough decisions. On Iraq and Afghanistan, they did. But when it comes to China, the Bush administration is engaged in one of the greatest acts of unilateral disarmament ever seen in U.S. foreign policy.

National security is about so much more than just military deployments. It is also about our tax, energy and competitiveness policies. And if you look at all these areas, the Bush team has not only been steadily eroding America's leverage and room for maneuver vis-à-vis its biggest long-term competitor - China - but it has actually been making us more dependent than ever on Beijing.

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren!

Leider haben wir nach den Korrosionsschäden an den 305 Behältern "Castor THTR/AVR" in dem Brennelemente-Zwischenlager (BZA) 1998/99 und im Juli letzten Jahres erneut in der TAZ-Ruhr vom 10. 3. 2005 von Problemen lesen müssen. Aus dieser Sachlage heraus ergeben sich folgende Fragen, um deren Beantwortung wir bitten:
Bereits in Ihrem Schreiben vom 15. 12. 2004 haben Sie die Störmeldung eines defekten Druckschalters beim Überwachungssystem mit Datum vom 15. 7. 2004 angegeben. Dem Pressebericht zufolge hat jetzt anscheinend erneut eine ähnliche Störung stattgefunden. Kann es sein, dass das Überwachungssytem nicht zuverlässig arbeitet? Kann es sein, dass die von Ihnen angeführte Beteiligung von Sachverständigen und deren Bewertung der Störung nicht den gewünschten Erfolg gebracht hat? Welche Ergebnisse ergaben die aktuellen Untersuchungen der aktuellen Störung vom März 2005?

In dem oben genannten Pressebericht wird die Halle des BEZ als "total nass" beschrieben und mit einer "Tropfsteinhöhle" verglichen. Außerdem wird von "tellergroßen Löchern" an den Castoren berichtet. Können Sie diese Meldung bestätigen und welche Maßnahmen unternehmen Sie gegebenenfalls, um diese Missstände zu beheben?

Sind bei allen Castoren die oberen Deckel abgeschraubt worden? Ist die Annahme richtig, dass für einen längeren Zeitraum die zweite Dichtungsbarriere nicht funktionsfähig ist oder war? Wie bewerten Sie diesen Vorgang?

Sind die Castoren nach der neuen Behandlung der oberen Deckel in Zukunft dicht? Und wie werden die zukünftigen Kontrollen aussehen?

Sind Sie mit dem zitierten Zwischenlager-Sprecher Jürgen Auer der Meinung, dass die Probleme von "Flugrost" herrühren? Was ist unter "Flugrost" zu verstehen?

Mit freundlichen Grüßen!

Stay Out of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge: The fight for ANWR continues

Tell the big oil companies to stay out of ANWR!

Today, my heart is heavy. By just two votes, we came up short in our effort to prevent oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, home to over 150 wildlife species. I offer my heartfelt thanks to the over 29,000 of you who joined with me and signed my petition to Senate Republican Leader Bill Frist, demonstrating our strong opposition to this disastrous policy.

In the end, over 90% of Senate Democrats voted to stop this madness -- we just didn't have the votes to overcome the Republican majority in the Senate.

But I want you to know that I won't give up in our fight to stop the drilling. And neither should you. I'm going to use every legislative tool at my disposal to reverse this vote and prevent this terrible policy from going into effect. But we can do more -- today.

I'm planning to organize a consumer boycott of any oil company that decides to drill in this pristine Alaskan wilderness area. If, through our pocketbooks, we can convince these companies to do the right thing, we can still save the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge from the destruction that would be wrought by the oil drilling rigs.

Send an email to the CEOs of ExxonMobil, BP, ConocoPhillips, Royal Dutch/Shell, and ChevronTexaco now and tell them to stay out of ANWR!

And then invite everyone you know to join us.

This battle is not over -- not by a long shot.

In Friendship,

Barbara Boxer

Mr. Lee Raymond, ExxonMobil CEO

Below is the sample letter:

Subject: Stay Out of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge!

Dear [decision maker name automatically inserted here],

As you know, current legislation making its way through Congress would open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling.

I am writing to urge your company to publicly pledge that you will not drill in ANWR.

The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is a God-given gift of pristine wilderness, first set aside by President Dwight Eisenhower more than 40 years ago, and we have a responsibility to preserve it. ANWR is home to more than 150 wildlife species, including caribou, polar bears, musk oxen, and millions of migratory birds.

The American people will not stand idly by and allow this wilderness area to be defiled.

If your company decides to drill in ANWR, we will launch a boycott of your products, and the products of your subsidiaries. And I know that millions of Americans will join us.

I urge you make a public pledge that you will not drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge -- or face a boycott of your products.

Thank you for your consideration of this critically important matter.
