Dying for an Iraq That Isn't

Harold Meyerson writes, "Of all the absurdities attending our unending war in Iraq, the greatest is this: We are fighting to defend that which is not there."

Advisers Fault Use of Torture in Interrogation

As the Bush administration completes secret new rules governing interrogations, a group of experts advising the intelligence agencies are arguing that the harsh techniques used since the 2001 terrorist attacks are outmoded, amateurish and unreliable.

CEOs vs. Slaves

Barbara Ehrenreich writes: "Recent findings shed new light on the increasingly unequal terrain of American society. According to a just-reported study by Carola Frydman of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Raven E. Saks at the Federal Reserve, 30 to 40 years ago, the CEOs of major companies earned 80 percent more, on average, than the third-highest-paid executives. By the early part of the twenty-first century, however, the gap between the CEO and the third-in-command had ballooned up to 260 percent."

Bush's Iraq Talking Points

Robert Parry writes, "It's an old military adage that bad intel can get soldiers killed, but it now turns out that false talking points may be even more lethal, a lesson that George W. Bush and Dick Cheney continue to teach the world as the death toll mounts in Iraq."

DGB fordert Regulierung von Hedge-Fonds

Der Deutsche Gewerkschaftsbund (DGB) fordert eine Regulierung von Hedge-Fonds und Private-Equity-Gesellschaften. Von ihnen gehe unmittelbare Gefahr für Arbeitsplätze aus, sagte Sommer am 30. Mai in Berlin. Bei den Private-Equity-Firmen will der DGB vor allem das "Ausschlachten" von Firmen verhindern. Hiervon sei rund jedes vierte Unternehmen betroffen, in dem solche Gesellschaften engagiert seien. Nötig seien daher etwa gesetzliche Beschränkungen bei der Kreditfinanzierung von Unternehmenskäufen, bei kreditfinanzierten Sonderausschüttungen sowie Einschränkungen bei steuerlichen Verlustrechnungen. Denkbar sei auch, die Stimmrechte an die Haltedauer der Aktien zu knüpfen, um Unternehmen vor aggressiven Investorenstrategien zu schützen.

Obwohl BBC einen Rückzieher gemacht hat und das Panoramaprogramm der Panikmache und Fehlinformation bezichtigt, hat die Sendung (eine Aufzeichnung liegt mir vor) seine fantastische Wirkung nicht verfehlt.

//news.bbc.co.uk/player/nol/newsid_4120000/newsid_4124500/4124514.stm?bw=b&mp=m

In Folge der Sendung schnellten in London die IT-Aufträge schnurlose Systeme zu deinstallieren und dafür Kabelgebundene Systeme zu installieren auf 40% aller Aufträge in die Höhe. Das gab es noch nie.

Hi, Even though the BBC is retracting and accusing the Panorama programme of scaremongering and misinformation, the impact of the programme has been phantastic! Look a this article on the IT contractor website. It actually says that last week, following the programme, 40% of all service calls were to take wireless out and cable systems up! This has never happened before!

Überlagerung von EMF durch Rauschfelder

HLV INFO 55/AT

Volker Hartenstein, MdL a.D. 28-05-07


Sehr geehrter Herr Prof. König,

nach einer vierteljährlichen Wartezeit auf eine Antwort von Ihnen erlaube ich mir, Sie zu erinnern. Da meine Fragen im Zusammenhang mit der Diskussion um Schädigungsmechanismen von Hochfrequenzstrahlung und um die Festlegung von Grenzwerten (nur thermische oder auch athermische Wirkung von Hochfrequenzstrahlung) von Interesse sind, bitte ich zum zweiten Mal um "baldige" Antwort.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Betreff: Fragen im Zusammenhang mit dem Bericht von Dr. Ruzicka zur Überlagerung von EMF durch Rauschfelder

Sehr geehrter Herr Prof. König,

im Anhang finden Sie einen Bericht von Dr. Ruzicka aus dem Bereich Elektrobiologie, den ich Ihnen nicht vorenthalten möchte. Dr. Ruzicka frägt nach der biologischen Relevanz von Störfeldern, wenn Zellen oder im Tierexperiment ohne diese Störfelder durch EMF (von ELF über 50/60 Hz bis zu Hochfrequenzfeldern) bestrahlt werden und Schädigungen zeigen. Er führt eine große Anzahl von Studien mit Tier- und Zellexperimenten an, die belegen, dass diese EMF zu Zellschädigungen und Gedächtnisstörungen bei Ratten verursachen. Diese Effekte konnten bei fast allen betrachteten Studien durch ein Störfeld ("Rauschen") rückgängig gemacht werden.

In diesem Zusammenhang bitte ich um Beantwortung folgender Fragen:

1) Sind dem BfS die angeführten Studien bekannt?

2) Wie beurteilt das BfS die Versuchsanordnung dieser Studien, d.h. den Befund, dass diese EMF zu einer Schädigung von Zellen und Gedächtnisleistung bei Tieren führen?

3) Wie beurteilt das BfS die weitere Versuchsanordnung, dass diese Schädigungen durch elektromagnetische "Rausch"-felder rückgängig gemacht werden konnten?

4) Sieht das BfS Handlungsbedarf für Revision der Grenzwerte im Bereich EMF (Nieder- und Hochfrequenz) bei diesen Befunden, die doch recht eindeutig auf Zellschädigungen und Störung der Gedächtnisleistung bei Ratten hinweisen?

Für eine baldige Antwort bedanke ich mich im Voraus und verbleibe

Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Former Enron Board Member to Replace Wolfowitz

Bush is expected to nominate Robert Zoellick - a former government official with close links to corporate America - to take over as head of the controversy-stricken World Bank. He is currently the head of investment bank Goldman Sachs and previously served on the board of Enron, the world's largest oil company.

Fitzgerald Says Plame Was a Covert Agent

In new court filings, Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald has finally resolved one of the most disputed issues at the core of the long-running CIA leak controversy: Valerie Plame Wilson, he asserts, was a "covert" CIA officer. Fitzgerald cites Wilson's covert status as part of his argument, advanced in two strongly worded memos filed in recent days, that I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney's former chief of staff, should be sentenced for up to three years in prison.

A date with destiny in July

A Deeping Gate woman will discover her destiny on 12 July, after two years of anxiety and worry.

The High Court will decide that day whether she can stay in her home of eight years, or whether she will be forced to sell up and move away from her friends and the village life she loves.

Because of a rare medical complaint, Pam Harris needs to spend seventeen hours hooked up to a machine every other day, just to stay alive.

If an 80-foot mobile phone mast is built near her home, that machinery will stop working and she could die. But that is exactly what mobile phone giant 3G wants to do.

Peterborough City Council rejected the application to build the mast at Mumby’s Yard on Suttons Lane, but that was overturned by Planning Inspectors. Now it is all down to the High Court.

Ludicrously, British law says that Pam’s medical condition can not be used in evidence. Solicitors will therefore argue that there were flaws in the Planning Inspectors’ methods.

Generous neighbours in Deeping Gate have raised an incredible £16,000 to help Pam fight her battle and keep the eyesore from being built.

They are now inviting anyone with an interest to attend one final public meeting to highlight her plight.

The meeting will be in Northborough Village Hall at 8pm on Wednesday, 13 June and they hope to have a guest speaker.

Deeping Mast Action Group coordinator Tony Wheatcroft said: “We are nearly there and support is valued more than ever!

“People’s generosity has already raised more than £16,000 and has given our campaign momentum and direction.

“Now we’re on the finishing straight.”

Pam Harris was first diagnosed with electromagnetic sensitivity in 1983 and is believed to be one of just 17 sufferers in the country.

She is also allergic to wheat and gluten products. If she briefly passes a phone mast in her car, her blood pressure levels alter dramatically and her heart skips a beat.

She and husband Johnny have had to spend thousands of pounds converting their house to accommodate the specialist equipment.

Tony Wheatcroft is available on 01778 344916 or 07710 090056.

EMERGENCY ACTION! Slaughter of Buffalo Calves Planned by Montana

Dear Buffalo Friends,

We have great news to report: YOU STOPPED THE PLANNED SLAUGHTER OF THE BUFFALO!!!!

This afternoon, Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer and Yellowstone National Park held a joint press conference in Helena, Montana, to announce that they WILL NOT SLAUGHTER any wild buffalo that remain in Montana come Monday! All those buffalo babies, their moms, and their families will live on!

This is a major victory for wild buffalo and their advocates worldwide! THANK YOU!

While the larger issue is far from being resolved, we should all take a deep breath and give thanks for this incredible news that we all helped make happen. The power, prayers, energy, spirit, love, and ACTION of all the people who care about the buffalo made this happen!

Here are the buffalo you helped save: //www.buffalofieldcampaign.org/media/photos/bisonphotos0607maycalves.html

The word from Montana and Yellowstone is this: any wild buffalo found in Montana come Monday would be transported (captured and hauled in trailers) into Yellowstone National Park. They would be taken north, to Stephens Creek, and let go. This transport could be very hard on the buffalo, especially the small calves, so we are hopeful that it will not have to occur at all.

The long-term solution for wild buffalo is year-round HABITAT! Yesterday approximately 200 buffalo were forcefully pushed out of Montana (off of our National Forest lands), back into Yellowstone National Park. The agents used horsemen and a helicopter to conduct this operation. Today, the same thing happened, with about 50 buffalo (moms, babies, families) being pushed off of Horse Butte, deep into Yellowstone. Sadly, the buffalo were pushed extremely hard - especially by the helicopter - and they were shot with orange paint balls by the agents on horseback. It almost looked like a re-enactment from the shameful buffalo hunts of the 1800s. You can see footage from yesterday at //www.buffalofieldcampaign.org.

During today's operation, a baby buffalo collapsed from exhaustion and possible injury. BFC patrols stayed with this little calf and its mom until they were able to be strong enough to resume their trek to catch up with their family members who had been chased out of Montana. They made it!

This great victory is not without its shadow, as wild buffalo should be allowed to roam freely in Montana, especially on our public lands. We will keep fighting for the buffalo until they are wild and free. But we will celebrate that these buffalo will not be sent to slaughter and that is because you made it happen! Thank you all so much! You flooded them with calls, emails, faxes and IT WORKED! The governor and Yellowstone made the right decision.

ACTION NEEDED: Please take the time to call and say THANK YOU to Governor Brian Schweitzer and Yellowstone Superintendent Suzanne Lewis for choosing to let these buffalo live. Encourage them to work to acquire year-round habitat for wild buffalo in Montana!

SAVE THE HERD ~ SPREAD THE WORD!! Please pass this alert on to everyone you know! Thank you!!

Montana intends to capture and slaughter wild buffalo, starting this week. Please take a moment to read this alert and contact the three decision-makers listed below, demanding that they cease plans to capture and slaughter approximately 300 wild buffalo, including little calves, their moms, and families.

The Montana Department of Livestock (DOL) has set up a bison trap near the West Yellowstone airport, on state land and they intend to begin capturing approximately 300 wild buffalo - including tiny newborn babies and their whole families - starting Thursday.

Click here to see photos of the beautiful buffalo babies and their families that are slated for execution: //www.buffalofieldcampaign.org/media/photos/bisonphotos0607maycalves.html

At an "emergency" Board of Livestock meeting in the Governor's office Tuesday, the decision was made by Montana's acting state veterinarian Jeanne Rankin: the agents will capture and ship all the buffalo to slaughter without testing for brucellosis exposure. Little buffalo calves between one month to a week old will be captured, separated from their moms, and join their family members at the slaughterhouse.

Yellowstone Superintendent Suzanne Lewis was asked at the meeting Tuesday if capturing and transporting the buffalo deeper into Yellowstone would be feasible. While (ironically) the DOL said it is feasible, Suzanne Lewis shot down this option. Apparently Suzanne Lewis would rather forfeit the lives of America's last wild buffalo. She said, "it has never been a policy of the Interagency Bison Management Plan to haul bison into the Park." In other words, she's attempting to wash her hands of this atrocity, handing the fate of these buffalo over to Montana, who intend to haul them all to slaughter.

These buffalo are being charged with the "crime" of trying to live wild and free; in other words, they didn't "stick in the Park" (as if they were velcro) and they are not "responding to hazing" (as if they should behave as cattle). The decision to trap and slaughter comes hot on the heels of brucellosis being discovered in a Montana cattle herd, far to the north and east of Yellowstone, far from any migration route of wild buffalo, far from Yellowstone National Park. There are no cattle currently in the West Yellowstone area and the majority of the bison to be captured and slaughtered pose NO risk of bacteria transmission. Because the bacteria can only be transmitted through contaminated reproductive materials, bison bulls, yearlings, non-pregnant females, calves, and mothers with calves CANNOT transmit the bacteria. Bison are not to blame. Wild bison have never transmitted the livestock disease brucellosis to cattle, and this incident is not their fault either. But the cattle industry wants to blame someone, and as always, they set their sights on wildlife.

These agencies are correctly concerned about the black eye they will receive for committing this act against the nation's last wild buffalo, and with your help, they will get it.

HERE'S WHAT YOU CAN DO: PLEASE CONTACT these three decision-makers TODAY demanding that they cease plans to capture and slaughter the buffalo who are trying to live wild and free! Contact each by phone, fax, and email and let's not let them forget that the world is watching!

State to capture, kill 300 bison //bozemandailychronicle.com/articles/2007/05/30/news/10bison.txt //buffalofieldcampaign.org/media/press0607/pressreleases0607/052907.html

Press Release- 5/29/07

Department of Livestock to Capture and Slaughter Yellowstone Bison

Exclusive BFC Video & Photos Available Upon Request

For Immediate Release: Tuesday, May 29, 2007 Contact: Dan Brister 406-646-0070

WEST YELLOWSTONE, MONTANA. Montana Department of Livestock agents are currently erecting a bison trap near the West Yellowstone Airport, located just outside the western boundary of Yellowstone National Park. According to statements made by the agents and the Montana governor's office, the state plans to capture and slaughter any bison in Montana starting as soon as tomorrow.

According to Bill Queen of the Hebgen Ranger District of the Gallatin National Forest, Forest Service lands and airport lands near the trap site will be closed to the public. However, members of the media and the public will be allowed to view operations from a nearby hillside.

There are approximately 250 bison grazing on National Forest lands in the area near the Madison River and Hebgen Reservoir. While the purported reason for the bison slaughter is to protect Montana's livestock industry from the European livestock disease brucellosis, at no time of the year do cattle occupy these public lands. There has never been a documented brucellosis transmission from wild bison to livestock.

"Governor Schweitzer campaigned on promises of providing greater tolerance for bison in Montana," said Dan Brister of the wild bison advocacy group Buffalo Field Campaign, "yet he bends to the irrational will of the Stockgrowers whenever they demand more dead bison. Since Governor Schweitzer has been in office, 1,177 Yellowstone bison have been killed."

Brucellosis has been receiving great attention in the state since last week when seven members of a Bridger, MT cattle herd tested positive for antibodies to the disease. Because Yellowstone bison never came anywhere near these cattle, it is certain that they are not the source of infection and likely that cattle are responsible for the transmission.

Wild bison are native to Montana yet ecologically extinct everywhere outside of Yellowstone National Park. Bison management currently falls under authority of the Montana Department of Livestock, an agency which manages them as a nuisance animal. Wild bison are never allowed in the state without being subject to harassment, slaughter, or shooting.

Buffalo Field Campaign calls on the state to provide year-round habitat for wild bison and allow bison to restore a viable population on public lands in Montana.

American Bison once spanned the continent, numbering between 30 and 50 million. The Yellowstone bison are America's only continuously wild, genetically unique herd, numbering fewer than 4,000 animals, less than .01 percent of their former population.

1,912 bison have been killed since 2000 under the Interagency Bison Management Plan. Last winter Federal and State agencies killed or authorized the killing of more than 1,010 bison. Since September of 2006 two bison have been captured and sent to slaughter by Montana Department of Livestock agents and hunters killed 58.

Buffalo Field Campaign (BFC) is the only group working in the field, every day, to stop the slaughter of the wild Yellowstone buffalo. Volunteers defend the buffalo and their native habitat and advocate for their lasting protection.

Abandon all unwinnable wars

Ludwig von Mises Institute
by Gary M. Galles

05/29/07

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid triggered a flurry of partisan attacks and counterattacks with his statement that ‘this war is lost, and this surge is not accomplishing anything.’ Perhaps most striking about his assertion that we ought to abandon rather than escalate a war that cannot be won is how inconsistently it is applied. There are a host of government sponsored domestic ‘wars’ to which that same argument applies, yet they get escalated rather than ended...

War is a racket

Free Market News Network
by Anthony Wile

05/29/07

Western elites are giving everything they have to the task of whipping up war hysteria in the United States and abroad. As presidential candidate Ron Paul (R-Tex) (and the 9-11 report itself) has pointed out, the violent foreign policy that America has pursued, especially as regards the Middle East, is yielding bitter fruit. The enemies the United States has assiduously cultivated over the last half century and more will haunt the country — and probably the West itself — for years to come. Of course if the leadership in the United States changes drastically, then the enmity that the West has earned will probably diminish. This could well happen as the Internet reveals more and more about how the elite’s most vicious racket actually operates...

War is a racket

Liberty For All
by Melinda Pillsbury-Foster

War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small ‘inside’ group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes...

by Pat Buchanan

05/30/07

So the questions come. Where is the Congress, which alone has the power to take us to war? Why are the Democratic candidates parroting the ‘all-options-are-on-the-table!’ mantra, when as ex-Sen. Mike Gravel noted in the first Democratic debate, this means George W. Bush is authorized to attack Iran. Why does Congress not enact the resolution Nancy Pelosi pulled down, which declares that nothing in present law authorizes President Bush to launch a pre-emptive strike or preventive war on Iran — and before launching any such attack, he must get prior approval from both houses of Congress?

Government’s lies and coercion are wearing thin

Liberty For All
by Ed Lewis

05/29/07

There is hardly any part of our lives that isn’t touched by government lies. In fact, our very liberty has been taken through lie after lie. And the vote has meant absolutely nothing in stopping the advance of government tyranny over the people of this country. If it isn’t the federal government removing or diminishing rights, it is the State governments...

How Democrats can save America

Strike the Root
by Glen Allport

05/29/07

Last week’s column was aimed at Republicans; this week, Democrats. These are not the expected topics for a libertarian/market-anarchist site. As I pointed out last week, making progress towards a more free and compassionate world will require that many more people begin to consider and to reject the evils of coercion. We need more than just a small group to support elimination of the use of force and violence to run society. We’ve had a small group and it hasn’t been enough. What we need, clearly, is a large group of people who overtly support both love and freedom, and who understand that love and freedom require each other. If we want to stop not only the current war but the entire, ongoing push for endless war and other aggression, then we need love and freedom to go mainstream. In short, we need outreach. You can help by forwarding this column to your Democrat friends (and by sending last week’s column to your Republican friends)...

The monster mast

By Richard Bean

A new phone mast erected at the heart of a community has stunned local residents.

Councillors have been besieged by complaints over the height, design and location of the O2 structure in Winstanley.

Coun Rona Winkworth, who lives near the mast, says scores of neighbours have complained.

She is demanding that Metro director of development Martin Kimber comes to view the site on Tan House Drive, behind The Poacher pub, so he can grasp the impact of the mast.

The mast has been put up next to shops and between two primary schools, St Aidan's and Winstanley County Primary.

Coun Winkworth believes there will be even more furore when other residents, who have not yet recognised it as a phone mast, realise what it is. Many are not aware as it looks very different to older masts.

She said: "I don't think the scale of this thing, by our village green, was properly represented on maps that went before the committee.

"I think it looks absolutely dreadful for Winstanley."

Coun Winstanley said residents were concerned about the possible effects to children at the schools.

Community activist Con Reardon, who lives in nearby Chiltern Drive, said the Government has started a three-year study into possible health effects from masts, and claims O2 should have been banned from erecting this one until that had been concluded.

He said: "How many more mobile phone masts are going to be located in and around Winstanley, which is already the most densely populated area of Wigan?

"This one has been sited right alongside our village green, our shopping centre, between our two schools, and right in the middle of hundreds of houses, who will be under the signal beaming in and out of these masts.

"Who knows what effect these signals have on our health?"

An 02 spokesman said that health concerns remained paramount and added: "All our base stations comply with international guidelines, typically by a factor of 100 times or more where the public have access.

Exposure from mobile handsets is higher, but well below international guidelines and with a significant safety margin.

Omega this is not true. See under:
//omega.twoday.net/topics/Wissenschaft+zu+Mobilfunk/
//omega.twoday.net/search?q=Cancer+Cluster
//www.buergerwelle.de/science.html


"We are reassured by all available current research and international bodies, including the World Health Organisation (WHO), are clear that there is no convincing evidence that mobile technology poses a risk to health.

Omega read "Base Stations, operating within strict national and international Guidelines, do not present a Health Risk?" under: //omega.twoday.net/stories/771911/ and
"Competing interests, conflicts of interest: Who's funding WHO?"under: //omega.twoday.net/stories/3347390/


"We also support current research programmes with data and funding."
He added that 02 also draws on strict codes of practice and expert advice to formulate policy and to guidelines.

The monster mast

It was a mast,
It was a monster mast,
It was a mast,
They upped it really fast
It was a mast,
It was a monster mast,
It gave a blast
And health concerns came last.

It was a mast
It was a monster mast,
It was a mast,
The harm it caused was vast
It was a mast
It was a monster mast
It was a mast
But this is not the past...

Hey Government, leave our kids alone

All in all you know we'll fight the masts 'til they fall
All in all you know we want no Wi-fi at all

Here another Pink Floyd themed one

You'd better make you face up in your favourite wire net
with your elcotrosmog proof jacket and your tin foil hat.
With a knowledge of the truth and the dangers set
They might laugh at your claims but they'll find out yet.
When they're diagnosed with cancer they'll remember you.
Trying to save them from this menace when you knew the truth
they'd better run...
they'd better run like hell...

Long Tours Extend Heartaches for Military Moms

US Army Captain Wendy Bernard, in the middle of a one-year deployment in Iraq, came home for two weeks' leave in the summer of 2004 to find that her year-old daughter, Clark, wouldn't speak to her after six months of separation. Extended deployments and abbreviated family leaves are among the difficulties probed by a May 11 Congressional report by the Joint Economic Committee concerning the difficulties of deployed mothers - who typically are young parents with lower incomes.

Bush's Role in Wiretapping Debate Probed

According to Newsweek, President Bush's role "has remained shadowy throughout the controversy over the eavesdropping program. But there are strong suggestions that he was an active presence. On the night after [former AG John] Ashcroft's operation, as Ashcroft lay groggy in his bed, his wife, Janet, took a phone call. It was Andy Card, asking if he could come over with [Alberto] Gonzales [now attorney general] to speak to Ashcroft. Mrs. Ashcroft said no, her husband was too sick for visitors. The phone rang again, and this time Mrs. Ashcroft acquiesced to a visit from the White House officials. Who was the second caller - one with enough power to persuade Mrs. Ashcroft to relent? The former Ashcroft aide who described this scene would not say, but senior DOJ officials had little doubt who it was - the president."

This is my resignation letter as the "face" of the American anti-war movement. This is not my "Checkers" moment, because I will never give up trying to help people in the world who are harmed by the empire of the good old US of A, but I am finished working in, or outside of this system. This system forcefully resists being helped and eats up the people who try to help it. I am getting out before it totally consumes me or anymore people that I love and the rest of my resources.

G8-Repressionen

Die Sorgen des Herrn Schäuble

Selenz` Kommentar 29. Mai 2007

Minister Schäuble ist in großer Sorge. Der Mann kann einem leid tun. Seine Mitarbeiter von den Sicherheitsdiensten halten ihn stets auf dem Laufenden. Von morgens bis tief in die Nacht. Er blickt von einem Abgrund in den nächsten. Das hinterlässt Spuren. Kurz vor dem G-8-Gipfel in Heiligendamm sehen seine Dienste und er die Republik in ihren Grundfesten erschüttert. Der Minister schreitet besorgt zur Tat. Bereits bei Vorgänger Schily hatten die Dienste ganze Arbeit geleistet. Aus einem RAF-Anwalt machten sie binnen Kurzem einen veritablen Polit-Rambo. Schily wollte sogar vollbesetzte zivile Flugzeuge zum Abschuss freigeben. Zur Abwehr von Terrorangriffen - versteht sich. Dem Bundesverfassungsgericht ging das eindeutig zu weit. Eine wehrhafte Demokratie darf sich in der Tat nicht von ihren Feinden überrumpeln lassen. Sie sollte ihre Bürger jedoch schützen und nicht schikanieren und schon gar nicht vorsätzlich töten.

Insbesondere die deutsche Geschichte liefert besorgten Politikern Anschauungsmaterial und Vorbilder aller Art. Und zwar in Hülle und Fülle. Dies zeigen aktuell einige kühne Griffe des Innenministers in die historische Gruselkiste. Ein eigens für den Gipfel errichteter anti-demonstrativer Schutzwall schirmt nicht nur das Tagungshotel ab. Die gesamte Gegend um den Tagungsort wird gleichzeitig weiträumig befriedet. Zur Zeit allerdings noch ohne Wachtürme und Selbstschussanlagen. Kein Demonstrationslärm soll das milde Rauschen der Ostseewellen übertönen. Die Proteste gegen diesen Schutzwall seien durchsichtig, meint der Minister. Herr Schäuble bezeichnet sie gar als „hysterisch“. Während er das sagt, greift der Minister tiefer und tiefer in die Stasi-Kiste. Er bereichert das gesamtdeutsche Polizei-Instrumentarium um so wunderbare Errungenschaften wie die Schnüffel-Probe. Damit soll es fürderhin möglich sein, Täter nach einer Demo an Hand ihrer Rückstellprobe zu überführen. Schnüffelnd! Wenn das kein Fortschritt ist? Von der Stasi lernen, heißt eben auch für Minister Schäuble siegen lernen. Neuerdings sollen geschredderte Stasi-Akten per Computer wieder lesbar gemacht werden. Da lässt sich sicher noch mehr in Erfahrung bringen. Aus der Praxis einer exzellent organisierten Bürgerüberwachung. Und wenn man schon mal so richtig in Schwung ist, kann man es auch mit dem Briefgeheimnis halten, wie es einst die Stasi tat. Deren Motto: Vertrauen ist gut - Kontrolle ist besser. Die Globalisierung ist eh nicht aufzuhalten. Herr Schäuble nutzt sie auf seine Weise.

In Sachsen sind derweil die Erfolge der Globalisierung unübersehbar. Darin verwickelt heimische Prominenz und die italienischen Mafia. Deren vertrauensvolle Zusammenarbeit mit Größen aus Politik und Justiz soll bis Anfang der 90er Jahre zurückreichen. Es geht um Organisierte Kriminalität und mafiöse Strukturen in Chemnitz, Dresden, Leipzig und Plauen. Die Themen: Mord, Erpressung, Bestechung und mehr. „Wenn man sich mit diesem Komplex beschäftigen muss, ist man angewidert von dem, was man liest“, so Sachsens Innenminister Buttolo.

Der Verfassungsschutz kennt die kriminellen Politiker und Beamten seit Jahren. Sammelte Tausende Dokumente mit belastendem Material. Enthüllungsautor Jürgen Roth machte das Thema öffentlich. Die Frage derzeit: Durfte der Verfassungsschutz das Material sammeln? Darf man kriminelle Politiker, Staatsanwälte und Richter ausforschen, ohne sie vorab darüber zu informieren? Mit der Aufklärung hat man es mithin nicht sonderlich eilig. Man stelle sich vor, der Bürger erführe, Staatsanwalt X und Richter Y hätten kriminelle Taten begangen. Taten, die zudem lange bekannt sind. Beim Bürger könnte glatt der Verdacht aufkommen, die Feinde des Rechtsstaates stünden bereits innen. Der Staat wäre demnach stärker bedroht von denen, die ihn schützen sollen als von den „üblichen Verdächtigen“? Dies könnte das Vertrauen der Bürger in Justiz und Verwaltung nachhaltig erschüttern. Doch wo kämen wir hin, wenn nun auch deutsche Richter und Beamte sich der gesetzlichen Verfolgung kriminellen Tuns zu stellen hätten. Auch da hat man von der Stasi gelernt. Die Stasi schredderte bekanntlich belastende Akten - soweit man sie nicht verbrannte. Derartige Schutzmaßnahmen sind jetzt auch in Sachsen geplant. So kann der Bürger weiter ruhig schlafen. Für Herrn Schäuble eine Sorge weniger. Hat der Minister nicht Recht, wenn er trotzig behauptet: „Wir sind kein Land, in dem Geisteskranke unterwegs sind!“?

Wer Sympathie äußert, muss Deeskalation betreiben

Bundesinnenminister Schäuble hat offenbar seine Sympathie für friedliche Proteste gegen den G8-Gipfel entdeckt. Dazu erklärt die stellvertretende Parteivorsitzende Katja Kipping (MdB):

Bundesinnenminister Schäuble versucht eine Woche vor Beginn des G8-Gipfels die Wandlung vom Saulus zum Paulus. Nachdem er durch rigide polizeistaatliche Maßnahmen versucht hat, Globalisierungskritiker einzuschüchtern und zu kriminalisieren, lädt er jetzt förmlich zu friedlichen Protesten gegen den Gipfel ein. Rechtzeitig hat er jedoch dafür gesorgt, dass den G8-Chefs der Anblick von Demonstranten erspart bleibt. Der 12 Kilometer lange und 2,50 Meter hohe Zaun, der den Charakter einer Mauer hat, wird die Chefs der G8 vor unliebsamen Begegnungen mit der Öffentlichkeit schützen. Was hätte man mit diesen 12,5 Millionen Euro für Afrika erreichen können, für die dringendsten Probleme sowie die HIV- und AIDS-Bekämpfung, die Kanzlerin Merkel voranbringen möchte. Der Zaun macht das Legitimitätsproblem der G8-Regierungschefs sichtbar. Insgesamt repräsentieren sie nur 13 Prozent der Weltbevölkerung. Die Beschlüsse aber, die sie treffen, betreffen am Ende rund 6 Milliarden Menschen, also die gesamte Weltbevölkerung. Insofern stellen die G8 auch eine kalte Entmachtung der UNO dar. Der Zaun von Heiligendamm ist eine deutliche Abgrenzung der Reichen dieser Welt gegen die Armen, der Globalisierungsgewinner gegen die Globalisierungsverlierer. Ich sage ganz klar: Die Gefahr für die Demokratie beim G8-Gipfel geht nicht von Demonstranten aus, sondern von der Bundesregierung, die im Vorfeld versucht hat, das Grundrecht auf Demonstration nach Gutdünken einzuschränken. Wenn es der Bundesinnenminister ernst meint mit seinem Verständnis für friedliche Demonstrationen, dann sollte er schleunigst seine Strategie wechseln und die Sicherheitskräfte auf Deeskalation einschwören. Wir werden uns an den Protesten und an den Veranstaltungen der Globalisierungskritiker des G8-Gipfels beteiligen und bereits am Samstag, dem 2. Juni, zur Großdemonstration in Rostock das erste Mal erleben, wie glaubwürdig die Sympathiebekundungen von Bundesinnenminister Schäuble sind.

Bärendienst für die Demokratie

Zu der Nichtzulassung von 20 Journalisten zur Berichterstattung über den G8-Gipfel und zum Demonstrationsverbot im Umfeld des Tagungsortes erklärt die stellvertretende Parteivorsitzende Katina Schubert:

Die jüngsten Entscheidungen des Bundespresseamtes und des Oberverwaltungsgerichtes sind Ausdruck der Sicherheitshysterie im Umfeld des G8-Gipfels. Sie reihen sich nahtlos ein in die rigide Sicherheitsdoktrin von Bundesinnenminister Schäuble. Mit der seit Wochen anhaltenden willkürlichen Einschränkung von Grundrechten wird der Demokratie ein Bärendienst erwiesen. Alle Maßnahmen haben nur ein Ziel, die geplanten friedlichen Proteste am Rande des G8-Gipfels im Vorfeld zu diskreditieren und zu kriminalisieren, um Gipfelgegner und Globalisierungskritikerinnen und -kritiker einzuschüchtern. Die Einschränkung der Pressefreiheit ist dabei das Tüpfelchen auf dem i. Die Methode ist nicht neu, kritische Journalisten werden so abgestraft. Man grenzt sie von Informationen aus, um eine Berichterstattung zu verhindern - eine subtile Form der Zensur. Das Recht auf Protest und die Pressefreiheit sind ein hohes Gut der Demokratie. Es reicht nicht aus, dass Bundeskanzlerin Merkel in anderen Ländern auf entsprechende Defizite hinweist, sie muss im eigenen Land dafür sorgen, dass die Demokratie nicht durch übereifrige Sicherheitsfanatiker beschädigt wird. Noch hat sie die Chance dazu.

G8-Infopunkt mit Information und Diskussion zum Gipfel

Unter dem Motto "Wie rennt man gegen einen Zaun?" wurde heute im Pavillon auf dem Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz in Berlin ein G8-Infopunkt der Anrainer Volksbühne, Kino Babylon und Karl-Liebknecht-Haus eröffnet. Hier werden im unmittelbaren Vorfeld und der Zeit des G8-Gipfels Informationen und Gespräche rund um die Gipfelproteste angeboten.

Kurz vor ihrer Abreise zur Großdemonstration nach Rostock sagte die stellvertretende Parteivorsitzende Katja Kipping zur Eröffnung des Infopunktes: "Auf der Agenda des diesjährigen Gipfels stehen brennende Themen unserer Zeit, wie Klimawandel und Armut in Afrika. Die bisherige Politik der G8 hat diese Probleme nicht gelöst, sondern immer noch verschärft. Wir wollen nicht nur vor Ort gegen die Politik dieses Clubs der Reichen und Mächtigen protestieren sondern auch über die soziale und politische Auswirkungen informieren. Hier auf dem Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz, wo Kunst und Politik zusammenkommen, ist ein guter Ort, sich gegen Armut, Klimakatastrophe und Krieg zu engagieren und über Alternativen zu diskutieren." Im Infopunkt kann man die Fernsehberichte über den G8-Gipfel und die Proteste verfolgen, es werden Dokumentarfilme früheren Gipfelprotesten gezeigt, es gibt Flyer, Flugblätter und anderes Informationsmaterial. Geöffnet ist der Pavillon am Samstag, 2. Juni, sowie von Montag, 4.Juni, bis Freitag, 8.Juni, jeweils von 12 bis 20 Uhr. Während in Heiligendamm der G8-Gipfel stattfindet, streiten am 7. Juni in der Volksbühne die belgische Politiktheoretikerin Chantal Mouffe, der Soziologe Ulrich Beck, Sven Giegold (attac), Jan Huwald von der Piratenpartei und Katja Kipping von der Linkspartei.PDS um Gesellschaftsentwürfe und neue Strategien der globalen Politik. Kurz vor dem G8-Gipfel publiziert der Suhrkamp Verlag unter dem Titel "Und jetzt?" Texte zur Globalisierung und deren langen, dunklen Schatten wie Arbeitslosigkeit, Lohndumping, Verarmung und Ausgrenzung ganzer Bevölkerungsteile. Anlehnend an die 11. Feuerbachthese von Karl Marx, dass es darauf ankomme, die Welt zu verändern, nicht nur zu interpretieren, geht es darum, die Diskussion erneut in Gang zu setzen und der Ohnmacht und postpolitischen Resignation zu entkommen. Die Podiumsdiskussion ist eine Veranstaltung des Suhrkamp Verlages und der Volksbühne und findet am Donnerstag, dem 7. Juni, um 21 Uhr im Sternfoyer statt.

Polizei stellt wegen G8-Gipfel Kinderfahrräder sicher

Die Polizei möchte offenbar die Mobilität von Gegnern des G8-Gipfels erschweren. So beschwerten sich Gipfelkritiker am Freitag über die Beschlagnahmung ihrer Fahrräder. Auf dem Weg in die Camps seien Fahrzeuge durchsucht und vor allem ältere Räder eingezogen, da sie nicht eindeutig ihren Besitzern zugeordnet werden konnten. Die Polizei habe die Aktion mit dem "begründeten Verdacht, dass bundesweit gestohlene Fahrräder nach Heiligendamm verbracht werden sollen", erklärt. Selbst Kinderfahrräder seien konfisziert worden, sagte eine Sprecherin der Camp AG.
