Verbot von Affenversuchen gefordert

Anlässlich des Welttierschutztages am 4. Oktober fordert der Bundesverband Menschen für Tierrechte ein gesetzliches Verbot von Affenversuchen. Dieses sei aus ethischen und wissenschaftlichen Gründen überfällig, meint die Organisation. In Deutschland würden jährlich über 2000 Affen in Tierexperimenten eingesetzt, in der gesamten EU etwa 10.000. Bis zu 80 Prozent der Primaten müssten noch immer für qualvolle Giftigkeitstests verschiedenster Substanzen ihr Leben lassen, kritisieren die Tierschützer.

Fortress Big Apple, 2007

Nick Turse writes for TomDispatch.com: "I am one of the demonstrators who was illegally arrested by the New York City Police Department during the protests against the 2004 Republican National Convention. My crime had been -- in an effort to call attention to the human toll of America's wars -- to ride the subway, dressed in black with the pallor of death about me (thanks to cornstarch and cold cream), and an expression to match, sporting a placard around my neck that read: WAR DEAD."

US Pays Steep Price for Private Security in Iraq

Walter Pincus reports for The Washington Post: "It costs the US government a lot more to hire contract employees as security guards in Iraq than to use American troops. It comes down to the simple business equation of every transaction requiring a profit."

Chorus of Bush Advisers Seek Iran War

Ros Taylor, of The Guardian UK, reports, "John Bolton, the former US ambassador to the United Nations, told Tory delegates today that efforts by the UK and the EU to negotiate with Iran had failed and that he saw no alternative to a pre-emptive strike on suspected nuclear facilities in the country." Sarah Baxter reports for The Times UK: "One of the founding fathers of neoconservatism has privately urged President George W Bush to bomb Iran rather than allow it to acquire nuclear weapons." Simon Walters reports for The Daily Mail UK: "British MPs visiting the Pentagon to discuss America's stance on Iran and Iraq were shocked to be told by one of President Bush's senior ... officials: 'I hate all Iranians.'"

Iraq Claims Extensive Evidence of Blackwater Massacre

Kevin Peraino reports for Newsweek: "Since the fatal Sept. 16 Blackwater USA shooting in Baghdad's Nasoor Square, officials from the private security company have insisted that their guards were responding to fire from 'armed enemies.' Yet an extensive evidence file put together by the Iraqi National Police and obtained by NEWSWEEK - including documents, maps, sworn witness statements and police video footage - appears to contradict the contractors' version of events."

Another Disaster Brews in Darfur

Edmund Sanders, of The Los Angeles Times, reports: "women wait as long as three days for water, using jerrycans to save their places in perpetual lines that snake around pumps. A year ago, residents could fill a 5-gallon plastic can in a few minutes, but lately the flow is so slow it takes half an hour. 'The water is running out,' said a breathless Mariam Ahmed Mohammed, 35, sweating at the pump with an infant strapped to her back. 'As soon as I fill one jerrycan, I put another at the back of the line.' Water isn't the only endangered resource. Forests were chopped down long ago, and the roots were dug up for firewood. Thousands of displaced families are living atop prime agricultural land, preventing nearby farmers from growing food."

Justices Begin Work on a Polarizing New Docket

New York Times's reporter Linda Greenhouse reports: "the Supreme Court has so many polarizing cases on the docket for its new term that the deep ideological divisions that characterized the last term are all but certain to remain on display after justices reconvene on Monday. The conservative majority under Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. drove the court to the right in a series of high-profile rulings during the term that ended in June. That performance, as well as a series of books and articles by and about justices, has placed the court in an unusually bright spotlight as the new term opens."

US Is Top Arms Seller to Developing World

Paul Shanker, of The New York Times, reports "the United States maintained its role as the leading supplier of weapons to the developing world in 2006, followed by Russia and Britain, according to a Congressional study to be released Monday. Pakistan, India and Saudi Arabia were the top buyers. The global arms market is highly competitive, with manufacturing nations seeking both to increase profits and to expand political influence through weapons sales to developing nations, which reached nearly $28.8 billion in 2006."

Deutschland hat Glaubwürdigkeitstest nicht bestanden

1. Oktober 2007

Zur heutigen "Berliner Rede" von Bundespräsident Köhler zur Globalisierung erklärt die stellvertretende Parteivorsitzende Katja Kipping:

Wenn Horst Köhler dazu aufruft, die Vorteile des globalen Wandels zu nutzen und jeden daran teilhaben zu lassen, ist das ein hehrer Anspruch. Die Realität in Deutschland sieht jedoch anders aus. Doch - wie Horst Köhler selber sagte - der Test für Glaubwürdigkeit beginnt zu Hause. Insofern hat Deutschland den Glaubwürdigkeitstest nicht bestanden. Globalisierung ist für die Menschen in diesem Lande in erster Linie mit dem Abbau von sozialen Rechten und Arbeitsstandards sowie mit Deregulierung verbunden. Wenn Horst Köhler heute die mutigen Reformen der vergangenen Jahre lobt und die Ablösung des "betreuend fürsorglichen" durch den "ertüchtigend vorsorglichen" Staat fordert, liefert er die ideologische Begleitmusik für den Abbau des Sozialstaates. Statt der Beteiligung einiger Beschäftigten am Kapital der Unternehmen bedarf es guter Löhne für alle. Wer möchte, dass die Beschäftigten mehr in der Tasche haben, muss den gesetzliche Mindestlohn einführen. Die viel beschworenen gleichen Zugangschancen für Bildung bleiben ohne Erfolg, wenn Kinder von Hartz-IV-Beziehenden und aus sozial benachteiligten Familien weder die notwendigen Schulmaterialien noch ein warmes Schulessen bekommen. Und wer Anstrengungen zur Bekämpfung des Klimawandels predigt, muss sich zu Hause aktiv dem geplanten Börsengang der Bahn entgegenstellen. Die heutige "Berliner Rede" von Horst Köhler ist voller freundlicher Worte. Hinter seinem eigenen Anspruch, dass der Test für Glaubwürdigkeit zu Hause beginnt, bleibt er jedoch selbst zurück.

The republic is dead. Not sick, not dying, not failing, or in a gradual decline, not waiting to be resuscitated, but already stone cold dead.

Have you heard about the crisis in Burma?

Burma is ruled by one of the worst military dictatorships in the world. This week Buddhist monks and nuns began marching and chanting prayers to call for democracy. The protests spread and hundreds of thousands of Burmese people joined in -- they've been brutally attacked by the military regime, but still the protests are spreading.

I just signed a petition calling on Burma's powerful ally China and the UN security council to step in and pressure Burma's rulers to stop the killing. The petition has exploded to over 200,000 signatures in a few days and is being advertised in newspapers around the world, delivered to the UN secretary general, and broadcast to the Burmese people by radio. We're trying to get to 1 million signatures this week, please sign below and tell everyone!

Kenneth Denby, of the Times UK, reports: "since last month Ko Latt, 28, his friends Arca, Eye, Sun and Superman, and scores of others like them have been the third pillar of Burma's Saffron Revolution. While the veteran democracy activists, and then the Buddhist monks, marched in their tens of thousands against the military regime, it is the country's amateur bloggers and internet enthusiasts who have brought the images to the outside world. Armed with small digital cameras, they have documented the spectacular growth of the demonstrations from crowds of a few hundred to as many as 100,000."

Burma: Monks vanish as troops step up presence

Independent [UK]

10/02/07

The gates were open at Rangoon’s glittering Shwedagon temple yesterday but soldiers, not monks, wandered its marble-floored shrines and pavilions. Five days after Burma’s military leaders began a crackdown on protesting monks and their civilian supporters, the red-robed Buddhist clergy, normally seen in their thousands around the city, have vanished. And the UN’s special envoy sent to confront the military junta was stalled for yet another day. ‘The monks are gone. We are worried about them. We don’t know where they are,’ said a young guide at the temple. … ‘It is strange now,’ said the guide, out of the earshot of soldiers. ‘We don’t think the army should be at the temple. We think the monks have been taken away. We think they are in jail.’ A senior monk told The Independent at the weekend he believed 3,000 monks had been detained by Burmese security forces, and were being held in police and military camps...

Soldiers hunt dissidents in Burma

Yahoo! News

10/03/07

After crushing the democracy uprising with guns, Myanmar’s junta switched to an intimidation campaign Wednesday, sending troops to drag people from their homes in the middle of the night and letting others know they were marked for arrest. People living near the Shwedagon Pagoda, Myanmar’s most revered shrine and a flash point of unrest during the protests, reported that police swept through several dozen homes about 3 a.m., dragging away many men for questioning...

Burma, Chevron and Total: If I were on a jury…

BradSpangler.Com
by Brad Spangler

10/04/07

As you’re no doubt aware, the Burmese state has been bloodily cracking down on popular unrest — massacring pacifist monks, dragging people out of their homes in the middle of the night and so forth. What you might not be aware of is that oil companies Chevron and Total are business partners with the Burmese state. These enterprises are complicit in propping up a tyrannical regime. Agorists recognize that, like most of the corporate dominated ‘white market’ economy, the source of their wealth is not really production and exchange but subsidies, sweetheart deals and generally cozy relationships with the bandit gangs more commonly referred to as ‘governments’...

My Last Conversation With Aung San Suu Kyi

By John Pilger

As the people of Burma rise up again, we have had a rare sighting of Aung San Suu Kyi. There she stood, at the back gate of her lakeside home in Rangoon, where she is under house arrest. She looked very thin. For years, people would brave the roadblocks just to pass by her house and be reassured by the sound of her playing the piano.

North American Union and Global Integration

by Dennis Cuddy, Ph.D

According to the North American Forum on Integration (NAFINA), on November 17, 1979 when Ronald Reagan officially declared his presidential candidacy, he proposed a "North American Agreement" in which "the goods and people of the three countries will cross boundaries more freely." Then as his presidency began in January 1981, he proposed a North American common market. By the last year of his presidency.........
