Greenpeace stoppt illegale Treibnetzfischer im Mittelmeer

23.06.06

An Bord der "Rainbow Warrior" brachten Greenpeace-Aktivisten am Freitag Morgen einen illegalen italienischen Treibnetzfischer auf und beschlagnahmten mehrere hundert Meter seines Netzes. Die "Piratenfischer" waren der Umweltorganisation zufolge 65 Kilometer südlich der italienischen Insel Ponza auf der Jagd nach Schwertfischen. Die Aktivisten konnten eine Meeresschildkröte aus dem Netz befreien und ihr so das Leben retten. "Treibnetze sind seit Jahren verboten", sagt Thilo Maack, Greenpeace Meeresbiologe. "Es ist skandalös, dass die italienische Regierung und die europäische Gemeinschaft es nicht schafft, ihre eigenen Gesetze durchzusetzen."

Fight to close mast loophole

23 June 2006

A COMMUNITY is fighting to uproot a six-month-old mobile phone aerial erected on Green Belt land without planning permission.

T Mobile took advantage of a planning loophole which allows phone companies to erect temporary aerials without planning permission in areas with little coverage.

Six months ago it built a 24-metre mast at the Cardrome site in Upper Rainham Road, South Hornchurch.

In May Havering Council told T Mobile to remove the aerial but instead the company has applied to retain the temporary aerial for two years and to add a second, 15-metre, mast at the site.

Cllr Georgina Galpin (Con, Hylands) last week she delivered around 250 leaflets to residents encouraging them to object to T Mobile's application.

She said: "Telecom-munications companies are really devious, they have no concern or thought for the local residents."

The GOP faces an uphill fight on re-selling the Iraq war, now in its fourth year

Polls, Pundits and Pols

"You'd never know it from some of the reporting and bloviating on the debate over an Iraq withdrawal, but all major polls show that the public favors withdrawals, with strong support for a timeline or total pullout within a year," writes Greg Mitchell. "But reading the latest poll results, one might conclude the opposite of what many reporters and pundits now seem to be suggesting: that, actually, the GOP faces an uphill fight on re-selling the Iraq war, now in its fourth year."

Democrats Criticize Claim on Iraqi Arms

The assertion by two Republican lawmakers that a new intelligence study proves that chemical weapons were found in Iraq has triggered sharp criticism from Democrats that the GOP is distorting intelligence for political purposes. At issue is a classified overview of chemical munitions found in Iraq since 2003 that was completed in April by the Army's National Ground Intelligence Center.

Congress May Bestow Unchecked Spying Powers on President

While dozens of lawsuits challenging the Bush administration's warrantless surveillance of Americans slowly move through the courts, the Senate Judiciary Committee is poised to consider legislation that would effectively legalize the practice. Civil-rights advocates and Constitutional-law experts say several proposed bills attempt to "whitewash" executive wrongdoing before Congress has the opportunity to conduct hearings and gather the facts surrounding the National Security Agency's involvement in warrantless wiretapping and telecommunications data mining.

AJR39 calling for the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Cheney

PLEASE FORWARD

Do you believe we should investigate and hold impeachment hearings against President Bush for illegal wiretapping of citizens, torture of prisoners, signing a version of the Deficit Reduction Act not passed by Congress (therefore reducing the amount of time disbled seniors have access to medical equipment), providing false information to Congress leading up to the war in Iraq, and other abuses of power?

If so, here is a great start to reaching that goal. According to Jefferson Manual section 603, States can begin the process of impeachment.

Please sign the online petition in support of California Assemblyman Paul Koretz' Assembly Joint Resolution, AJR39, calling for the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Cheney.

We hope to reach at least 1,000 signatures by Friday of next week. With your help, I think we can do it.

You must reside in California to sign the petition. Go to:
//www.gopetition.com/online/8849.html

Petitions will be delivered to Speaker Nunez' office and other appropriate CA state legislators on an ongoing basis.

Also, if you are a resident of the City of Los Angeles, please additionally sign the petition to introduce an impeachment resolution in the Los Angeles City Council:

The brutality of The Road to Guantanamo

Slate
by Dana Stevens

06/22/06

The Road to Guantánamo (Roadside Attractions), Michael Winterbottom and Mat Whitecross' half-feature film, half-documentary about three British youths who spent over two years in military prison for no justifiable reason, is exhausting, depressing, slightly nauseating, and unfortunately necessary. It turns an abstract debate about human rights and the Geneva Conventions into a visceral experience of lived injustice: What if you were rounded up with friends on the eve of your own wedding; shipped to an American airbase to be shackled, beaten, and interrogated; and then sent without trial to languish in a cage in Cuba?

Shielding the flag, shattering liberty

Star Tribune
by staff

06/22/06

America is a nation built on four flimsy sheets of parchment. They're not as thrilling to look at as Old Glory, but the brittle pages of the U.S. Constitution have done more to sustain American liberty than any flag ever could. It's too bad, really, that Americans don't pledge allegiance to the Constitution -- and don't revere it as they do the Stars and Stripes. If they did, they'd see the folly in defending a rectangle of cloth at the expense of the parchment's promises. Not that the flag really needs protection. It waves in the wind every day everywhere and is trampled underfoot rarely anywhere. But whenever an election draws near, lawmakers trot out a constitutional amendment to ban 'flag desecration.' Pandering to public fondness for the most colorful symbol of U.S. freedom, Congress is gunning once again for the amendment's passage...

Secret government or a free press?

USA Today
by staff

06/21/06

France, Germany and courts in Japan could teach America a thing or two about one essential aspect of democracy: Their governments are more willing to make sure that journalists have the means to act as watchdogs on the people in power. Several European nations guarantee that reporters cannot be forced to expose sources to whom they've guaranteed confidentiality. Just last week, Tokyo's high court upheld a Japanese reporter's refusal to reveal the sources of a 1997 news story about a U.S. health food company. This is just common sense. Those in power keep secrets -- sometimes to protect their power, sometimes for financial or political gain, and sometimes for more legitimate reasons, such as national security. The nation's Founders knew this. They created a free press in large part as a check on that sort of power. Reporters and commentators would serve as watchdogs...

Supreme Court ruling on police raids endangers citizens

Fox News
by Radley Balko

06/22/06

Last week, the Supreme Court ruled in its 5-4 decision in the case of Hudson v. Michigan that when police conduct an illegal, no-knock raid, any evidence they seize in the raid can still be used against the suspect at trial, even though the raid was conducted illegally. I’ve spent the last year researching these types of volatile, highly-confrontational, paramilitary raids for a forthcoming report for the Cato Institute. The decision in Hudson is almost certain to lead to more illegal no-knock raids, more mistaken raids on innocent people, and more unnecessary deaths, both of civilians and of police officers. Experts on both sides of the ruling have debated the issue for a week now. I’d like to make another point. The Supreme Court split on this case, right down the middle. The four most liberal justices voted in favor of the defendant, while the five most conservative justices voted in favor of the police...

The Los Angeles Times also reported on the issue Thursday night on its Web site, against the Bush administration's wishes.

Speak out against voter suppression in Ohio - Stop New Voter Suppression Tactic in Ohio

Forward this information

So far, over 13,000 people have signed our petition against Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell’s new regulations that severely restrict voter registration. We’re looking to get at least 25,000 by Monday when the Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review (JCARR) will vote to accept or reject the regulations. Please help us reach our goal!

The voter suppression going on in Ohio will have an impact on traditionally disenfranchised communities that could last for several election cycles. And if these kinds of tactics are accepted as “fair game,” they are sure to be employed in other states soon.

If you have not signed the petition, please do so now at //www.pfaw.org/go/OHSuppression.

If you’ve already signed, please forward this alert to your friends and ask them to sign as well.

Blackwell’s new rules threaten criminal penalties for individuals registering voters if they do not exactly conform to complicated, burdensome procedures. The resulting intimidation of registration workers has the potential to bring to a screeching halt efforts to register poor, young and African American voters. Help us send a message to the Ohio Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review that this is unacceptable.

Shutting people out of the democratic process is not the American Way. Weigh in against this attack on voting rights by signing and forwarding our petition today!

Let’s nip this attempt at voter suppression in the bud before it wreaks havoc on democracy in Ohio and spreads to other states.

Our plan for VICTORY in November

We recognize that this November may the last chance to save our country from the willful lies and dictatorial abuses of the Bush administration. We recognize that above all else the majority of the country want an END to the misuse of our military in the disastrous occupation of Iraq. And we recognize that if our candidates STAND UP for real accountability, the American people WILL turn out and vote for regime change in our own country.

THEREFORE, we need each and EVERY one of our participants to do the following:

1) If you have not already done so (and 6,000 of you already have), sign the Peace Pledge, that you will ONLY support candidates who commit to ending the occupation of Iraq, and to oppose any like wars of aggression. ALL our peace candidate action pages from now on will include signing on to the Peace Pledge as an additional option, for example, Stacey Tallitsch.

ACTION PAGE: //www.usalone.com/stacey/pnum320.php

2) Each of our peace candidates will be running direct "call to action" radio spots in their own districts, calling for an immediate end to the occupation of Iraq. If you have the ability to make a contribution to support these efforts, you can be assured that you are making an INVESTMENT in building a consensus on this issue, and letting the American people know that there ARE viable alternative candidates standing up for us now. You can hear the first of these inspiring new radio spots at this page.

CALL TO ACTION DONATIONS: //www.usalone.com/stacey/donations.php

3) Even if you are not in a position to make a donation, we need to make 10 million phone calls to our fellow constituents between now and November. If you have not already done so, please sign up for the Blades of Grass initiative, and you can then participate to virtual phone bank in support of any of the peace candidates in any district

BLADES OF GRASS SIGNUPS: //www.usalone.com/bladesofgrass.htm

If each of us were to make just 10 calls a week, we can make all those calls with just 100,000 dedicated virtual phone bank participants. Then we'll alert you to let you know where your help is most needed.

Whatever you want to call it, a war, an occupation, it has to START stopping now. The American people know it, they understand it, and they will support candidates with the COURAGE to say so. Six months ago John Murtha proposed redeploying by the end of the year. It should ALREADY be happening. And if we just get out there and say so NOW, the American people will trust in our leadership come November.

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this message to everyone else you know.

Help stop the Mexican wolf slaughter!

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is destroying yet another family of Mexican gray wolves – even though the agency has identified the species as the most endangered mammal in North America. The male of the recently released Nantac Pack was just shot and killed, and the female is being hunted down right now. Both members of this pack were survivors of past predator control actions.

In 1996, an environmental analysis of the Mexican wolf reintroduction program projected that the population would reach at least 100 animals by the end of this year. However, it is believed there are presently fewer than 40 grown wolves in the wild plus an unknown number of pups born this year.

The federal predator control program wiped out wolves originally, and since reintroduction efforts began in 1998, the program has significantly contributed to the reduction of the census population of Mexican wolves in the wild, from 55 in 2003, to 44 in 2004, to 35 in 2005 – a 20 percent decrease each year.

Within the last month, federal agents killed 11 wolves, including six pups from one pack. A seventh pup was orphaned and likely died of starvation as a result of losing its parents.

Please help us put a stop to this cruel and senseless program! Contact Secretary of the Interior Dirk Kempthorne to request an emergency moratorium on predator control directed against Mexican wolves until the population stabilizes and reaches its demographic goal. Send a copy of your letter to governors Bill Richardson (N.M.) and Janet Napolitano (Ariz.), who can both wield influence through their respective wildlife departments.
