The Yazoo Pumps threatens to destroy 200,000 acres of Mississippi Delta wetlands

Right now a project called the Yazoo Pumps threatens to destroy 200,000 acres of Mississippi Delta wetlands – the home of the Louisiana black bear. The Environmental Protection Agency recently announced a plan to stop the Yazoo Pumps, but we need your help to make sure there is a groundswell of public support for this plan. Write the EPA today to say how important this is to you! May 5th is the fast-approaching deadline to send your official public comment to the Environmental Protection Agency supporting its plan to stop the Yazoo Pumps. For the first time in nearly 20 years, the EPA is using its "veto authority" to stop the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers from constructing the environmentally destructive Yazoo Pumps project. But for the final veto to go through, the EPA needs to hear from you that you want this project gone. Just one minute of your time will help protect 200,000 acres of Mississippi Delta wetlands that would be drained and destroyed by the pumps. These are the same wetlands where Theodore Roosevelt famously refused to shoot a bear that had been tied to a tree – an action that sparked the creation of the teddy bear. Stopping this project will also protect some of the best wildlife habitat in the heart of the Mississippi River Flyway, keep several wildlife refuges and national forests healthy and save taxpayers more than $220 million! On April 17th, hundreds of people came to the public hearing in Vicksburg, Mississippi, to support the EPA's plan to veto the pumps. Now YOU can help by personalizing and sending comments to the EPA to make sure it "Dumps the Pumps" to protect Mississippi's precious wetlands and wildlife. Send your message today before the May 5th deadline. Let's flood the EPA with messages urging it to protect this important wildlife habitat!

Resident objects to cellphone towers in West End

A West End tenant has written to Vancouver mayor Sam Sullivan to object to the installation of seven cellphone-transmission antennas on the roof of her building. In her April 24 letter to Sullivan, Tina Zanetti stated that she discovered that two separate permits had been issued to Mott Electric earlier this year without any notification to area residents about the “health hazards associated with electromagnetic radiation”.

Zanetti, a resident of 1395 Beach Avenue, noted in her letter that cellphone towers are regulated by the federal government. She accused the city of being “completely reckless” in its handling of this issue. Zanetti demanded that the mayor impose a stop-work order and immediately notify West End residents of this in writing. She also wants a notice published in a newspaper for the purpose of holding a public forum on the issue.

Strike Against War Shuts Down West Coast Ports

Peter Cole writes for The Seattle Post-Intelligencer: "On Thursday, May Day, the International Longshore and Warehouse Union will declare an eight-hour strike to protest the war in Iraq. Since the ILWU controls every port along the U.S. Pacific Coast, including Seattle and Tacoma, this strike demonstrates the collective power of workers willing to use it."

Union's War Protest Shuts Down West Coast Ports

William Yardley, for The New York Times: "West Coast ports were shut down on Thursday as thousands of longshoremen failed to report for work, part of what their union leaders said was a one-day, one-shift protest against the war in Iraq. Cranes and forklifts stood still from Seattle to San Diego, and ships were stalled at sea as workers held rallies up and down the coast to blame the war for distracting public attention and money from domestic needs like health care and education."

LA Times

05/01/08

Thousands of dockworkers at all 29 West Coast ports, including Los Angeles and Long Beach, took the day off work today in what their union called a protest of the war in Iraq, effectively shutting down operations at the busy complexes.The action came two months before the contract expires between the dockworkers, represented by the International Longshore and Warehouse Union, and the Pacific Maritime Assn., which represents port operators and large shippers, many of them foreign-owned.“We are supporting the troops and telling politicians in Washington that it’s time to end the war in Iraq,” said union President Bob McEllrath...

Angry residents call for mast veto

Rebecca Connop Price reports

RESIDENTS living near a water tower decked out with dozens of mobile phone masts have demanded that the council throw out plans for two new masts.

A petition signed by 155 people living near the Cargate water pumping tower in Aldershot was submitted to Rushmoor Borough Council on Friday.

The petition called for the council to withdraw the application submitted last month by Orange Personal Communication Services.

ACLU: Torture of Detainees Continued After 2003 Directive

Adam Goldman, of The Associated Press, reports "the military continued to use abusive interrogation methods on detainees after a 2003 directive meant to end such practices, the American Civil Liberties Union said Wednesday after reviewing newly released documents. The Department of Defense documents shed light on the use of psychologists in military interrogations and the failure of medical workers to report abuse of detainees, the ACLU said. 'The documents reveal that psychologists and medical personnel played a key role in sustaining prisoner abuse - a clear violation of their ethical and legal obligations,' ACLU attorney Amrit Singh said."

The case for recession

The American Conservative
by Nelson Hulteberg

04/21/08

Bank of America economist Mickey Levy recently made one of the most astonishing comments heard in a long time, says Chicago financial commentator Bill King in his ‘King Report:’ ‘The Fed knows its credibility would be damaged if the economy slipped into recession.’ King’s response: ‘When did recession become an abhorrent, avoid-at-all- costs phenomenon?’ Recessions have been common throughout our history, and the country has always survived because our political and economic leaders understood that a periodic ‘riding out’ was necessary to cleanse the system of excesses and enable it to return to real growth. What is different this time that makes the Fed so desperate to avoid a healthy purging?

The day I lost my innocence

CounterPunch
by WILLIAM P. O'CONNOR

04/30/08

[T]he generation of young men who fought the Viet Nam war trusted authority. We thought because people in authority are experienced, they usually know best. We were hopeful and idealistic, and the majority of us believed in our country. We were told that freedom has a price and we lived in a country that represented democracy and freedom around the globe. We also believed, as we know now erroneously, that our government was committed to this paradigm. Age has not blessed me with wisdom, but I do know old men make the wars, and I sincerely believe that they feel truth is just a game, a game for children and a game that must be played by young idealistic boys...

In The New York Times, Thomas L. Friedman says, "It is great to see that we finally have some national unity on energy policy. Unfortunately, the unifying idea is so ridiculous, so unworthy of the people aspiring to lead our nation, it takes your breath away. Hillary Clinton has decided to line up with John McCain in pushing to suspend the federal excise tax on gasoline, 18.4 cents a gallon, for this summer’s travel season. This is not an energy policy. This is money laundering."

The Great Syrian Nuclear Menace

http://www.lewrockwell.com/margolis/margolis107.html

--------

Are these Syrian nuclear pictures faked?

The CIA published three aerial photographs last week purporting to show a Syrian nuclear reactor, bombed by Israel last September. But are the pictures all that they seem? Doubts about their authenticity have been raised by Professor William Beeman, head of anthropology at the University of Minnesota, who has had a long involvement with the Middle East.

ödp Veranstaltung-Nachbericht: ödp-Bundesvorsitzender: EU-Reformvertrag weist Parallelen zur Sowjetunion auf

Pressemitteilung des ödp Stadtverbands München

ödp-Bundesvorsitzender: EU-Reformvertrag weist Parallelen zur Sowjetunion auf

„Die Strukturen der Europäischen Union werden durch den sogenannten Lissabon- oder EU-Reform-Vertrag noch undemokratischer“, warnte Prof. Dr. Klaus Buchner, Bundesvorsitzender der Ökologisch-Demokratischen Partei (ödp), in einem Vortrag in München.

Unter dem provokanten Titel „ EU-Reformvertrag – Parallelen zur Sowjetunion?“ referierte Buchner zu den geplanten Änderungen in den Strukturen der Europäischen Union im vollbesetzten Saal der Gregor Louisoder Umweltstiftung. Durch den sogenannten Lissabon oder EU-Reform-Vertrag, der soeben vom Bundestag ratifiziert wurde, und 2009 in Kraft treten soll, wird eine weitere Kompetenzübertragung vom Bund auf die europäischen Institutionen in Brüssel zementiert. „Parallelen der EU-Regierungsstruktur zur Sowjetunion sind offensichtlich und kein Zufall.“, so der ödp-Bundesvorsitzende.

Prof. Buchner weiter: „Der EU Reformvertrag enthält zu über 95% den Text der gescheiterten EU-Verfassung. Jetzt wird also diese Verfassung, die auch über dem deutschen Grundgesetz stehen wird, am Volk vorbei eingeführt. Das demokratiefeindliche Ergebnis hat jetzt Verfassungsrang: Die überaus starke Machtbasis der EU-Kommission, die nur von den Mitgliedsregierungen ernannt wird, und die schwache Rolle des EU-Parlaments erinnern an die Machtstrukturen in der früheren Sowjetunion: Auch hier wurde der Oberste Sowjet als Pseudolegislative von einer starken Exekutive in Form des Politbüros vollständig dominiert.“

Laut ödp sind bereits heute 85% der im Bundestag verabschiedeten Gesetze lediglich die Umsetzung von entsprechenden EU-Verordnungen.

Mit dem neuen Vertragswerk wird nun zusätzlich auch die Außen- und Sicherheitspolitik verstärkt an das „Politische und sicherheitspolitische Komitee“ (PSK) der EU übertragen. Dieses kann die Mitgliedstaaten in Zukunft auffordern „Missionen“ durchzuführen, was laut Prof. Buchner nichts anderes als die Umschreibung dafür ist, dass die EU in Zukunft Kriege ohne irgendwelche Parlamentsermächtigung führen kann. Prof. Buchners Hauptkritikpunkt am EU-Reformvertrag: Die EU-Strukturen werden sich weiter verselbständigen und ausweiten - trotzdem ist auch für die Zukunft keine ausgleichende parlamentarische Kontrolle vorgesehen. Die EU-Kommission ist den Bürgern zu keinerlei Rechenschaft verpflichtet und kann ihre eigenen Verordnungen ungestraft ignorieren.

Durch die über 15000 Lobbyisten der Industrie in Brüssel ist darüber hinaus, so Prof. Buchner, der Gesetzgebungsprozess in der europäischen Kommission schon heute maßgeblich zu Gunsten der Großkonzerne verzerrt. Und das EU-Parlament hat auch in Zukunft keine Möglichkeit zur eigenen Gesetzgebungsinitiative. Es darf de facto nur die in den Hinterzimmern der EU-Kommission abgestimmten Vorschläge abnicken.

Diese überaus starke Machtbasis der EU-Kommission, die nur von den Mitgliedstaaten ernannt wird, und die weiterhin schwache Rolle des EU-Parlaments veranlasste Prof. Buchner zu dem Vergleich mit den Machtstrukturen in der früheren Sowjetunion, wo der Oberste Sowjet als Pseudolegislative, von einer starke Exekutive in Form des Politbüros vollständig dominiert wurde.

In der abschließenden Diskussion, die von der Sorge darüber geprägt war, warum sowenig über dieses wichtige Thema diskutiert wird und was man eigentlich noch tun könne, wies Prof. Buchner auf die geplante Klage der ödp gegen den EU-Reformvertrag beim Bundesverfassungsgericht hin, die sofort nach der Ratifizierung des Vertrags durch den Bundesrat eingereicht werden soll.
