War Is Not a Solution for Terrorism

Howard Zinn writes, "Massive military attacks, inevitably indiscriminate, are not only morally reprehensible, but useless in achieving the stated aims of those who carry them out. The United States, in three years of war, which began with shock-and-awe bombardment and goes on with day-to-day violence and chaos, has been an utter failure in its claimed objective of bringing democracy and stability to Iraq"

The MOTHER Of All Action Alerts

Brave candidates are now stepping forward all over the country to confront the Bush administration on their Iraq lies. Many of you have already seen the magnificently courageous new TV spot of Charles W. Sanders in the 3rd District of Ohio.


Charles has a special Democratic primary election coming up in just two weeks, and we need to make absolutely sure that we turn out every vote we can to support a candidate who is taking such a strong stand on these life and death issues.

We've made it so easy, all you have to do is set your own password at the new Charles Sanders virtual phone bank:

Once you login you will find a script ready for you to use, answers to all questions (including statements of Charles' position on lots of other issues), there is even a live chat function you can use to get live help on the spot.

Those of you who have only one phone line and use it also for your internet connection asked if we could find a way to let you use the system. AND WE DID IT. Now you can get 10 numbers at once and make your calls while you go offline.

Literally, everything you need to become an instant phone pro is at your fingertips. We can even set you up with a phone card to pay for the calls.

Won't you make a couple phone calls on your own schedule to help get the peace message out? You can have an enormous impact by helping to locate people who would also be very motivated to be additional local volunteers for him. If each of us just does a little bit week by week, we can turn the whole country around by mobilizing our friends and neighbors as never before.

This next election is our last chance to save us all. We HAVE to do it. Please help.

Aufruf zur Demonstration am Donnerstag 7.9. in Berlin

Werner-Fuß-Zentrum Landesverband Psychiatrie-Erfahrener Berlin-Brandenburg e.V. Irren-Offensive e.V.
z.Zt. im Haus der Demokratie und Menschenrechte Greifswalder Str. 4 - 10405 Berlin
Tel.: 030-291 100 - Fax.: 030-782 8947 -

Aufruf zur Demonstration:

Donnerstag, 7.9.2006 von 8.00 -10.30 Uhr vor dem Bundesjustizministerium Mohrenstr. 37, Berlin Mitte

Ein laufendes Gesetzgebungsverfahren ist bisher der Aufmerksamkeit der Medien entgangen. Ältere Menschen und Psychiatrie-Erfahrerene sind betroffen. Sowohl die Persönlichkeits- als auch die Verfahrensrechte dieser Menschen werden durch die geplante Änderung des § 8, des Betreuungsbehördengesetzes (Bundestagsdrucksache Nr.16/1339: ) bedroht.

Die geplanten Änderungen haben fatale Auswirkungen: Ganz unbedarft – in der Regel sogar in guter Absicht – kann ein Arzt einem eigensinnigen Patienten testieren, er sei nicht „zustimmungsfähig“. Wenn ein solcher Hinweis in einem eingeleiteten Betreuungsverfahren auftaucht, soll nunmehr die Betreuungsbehörde in einem Geheimverfahren, also ohne Wissen und ohne Einverständnis des Betroffenen, dessen gesamtes Umfeld aushorchen, Daten sammeln und Ermittlungen anstellen können.

Vordergründig scheint es sich nur um eine bundesrechtliche „Ergänzung“ landesrechtlicher Datenschutzgesetze zu handeln. Tatsächlich geht es aber um eine umfassende Entrechtung und schwere Persönlichkeitsrechtsverletzung, die schon im Verfahren ohne vorherige Anhörung des Betroffenen vorgenommen werden soll und ohne dass z.B. geprüft wurde, ob nicht eine vorhandene Vorsorgevollmacht das gesamte Betreuungsverfahren überflüssig macht. Geheime Ermittlungen einer Behörde im Umfeld eines älteren oder psychiatrie-erfahrenen Menschen sind immer diskriminierend und stigmatisierend. Sie verletzen die Würde dieser Personen.

1998 wurde in einer Betreuungsrechtsreform der privatautonomen Regelung durch eine Vorsorgevollmacht eine vorrangige Stellung gegenüber der richterlich angeordneten Betreuung eingeräumt. Diese Entwicklung wurde inzwischen durch die letzte Betreuungsrechtsreform im Jahr 2005 von allen Parteien bestätigt. Es entspricht obrigkeitsstaatlichem Denken, wenn diese Fortschritte durch eine geheim ermittelnde Betreuungsbehörde unterlaufen werden. Der Entmündigungs-Charakter der Betreuung nimmt dadurch wieder stärker zu.

Eine schwarz-rote Koalition droht mit ihrer erdrückenden Mehrheit ein solches Gesetz durchzupeitschen. Es ist ein schlimmes Zeichen für alle Bürger, wenn per Gesetz Minderheiten mit Geheimdienstmethoden ihres Selbstbestimmungsrechts beraubt werden sollen.

Wir appellieren an alle BürgerInnen, insbesondere aber an die Bundesregierung, diesem Gesetzentwurf jede Unterstützung zu entziehen und völlig aus der Diskussion zu nehmen. Er ist mit rechtstaatlichen Prinzipien unvereinbar.

BLM Fails to Track Environmental Data on Gas Fields

The Bureau of Land Management has neglected its public commitments to monitor and limit harm to wildlife and air quality from gas drilling on public land in western Wyoming, according to an internal BLM assessment.

Fascist Appeasers

"I am no appeaser of fascism, for I have fought this administration at every step. Millions have done the same, and will continue to do so. To stand in opposition to this new type of fascism, embodied in the hypocrisies and lies of men like Rumsfeld and Bush, is as much our patriotic duty as the time I spent in that jury room," writes William Rivers Pitt.

The Mayor and the President: A View in Salt Lake City

By Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich

Mr. Bush knows that unlike the story of the boy who cried wolf too many times, he can drive home his message successfully. It is the repetitiveness of his messages that will eventually give them authenticity. Once the people hear them often enough, they will not question their veracity. He is beating the drums – another war – more WMD to be destroyed, he claims. Bush is taking us to war again. More lies, more deaths.

"Fascism" Frame Set Up by Right-Wing Press

Analysis by Jim Lobe

The aggressive new campaign by the administration of President George W. Bush to depict U.S. foes in the Middle East as "fascists" and its domestic critics as "appeasers" owes a great deal to steadily intensifying efforts by the right-wing press over the past several months to draw the same comparison.
