New Presidential Debate Site? Clearly, YouTube

The quadrennial ritual of presidential debates has long followed a tried-and-true format. A guy in a suit asks mostly predictable questions of other suits. The voter is a fixture in the audience, motionless until he or she gets to address the candidate briefly and respectfully. Everything is choreographed. Now imagine a kid in jeans and a T-shirt asking a question, less reverentially, more pointedly and using powerful visual images to underscore the point. The presidential debates are about to enter the world of YouTube, the anything-goes, home-video-sharing web site that puts the power in the hands of the camera holder.

Agents Provocateurs: Attac sieht parlamentarischen Klärungsbedarf nach G8

Das globalisierungskritische Netzwerk Attac fordert eine intensive parlamentarische Aufklärung unter anderem des Vorgehens der Polizei während der G8-Proteste. Gefragt seien die Abgeordneten sowohl des Bundestages als auch der Landtages von Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, sagte Werner Rätz vom Attac-Koordinierungskreis am 15. Juni in Frankfurt am Main. Erforderlich sei vermutlich die Einrichtung von parlamentarischen Untersuchungsausschüssen.

Humanitärer Deckmantel für Öl-Interessen: Kritik an Verlängerung des Bundeswehr-Einsatzes im Sudan

Am 14. Juni hat der Deutsche Bundestag mit überwältigender Mehrheit einer Verlängerung des deutschen Militäreinsatzes im Sudan zugestimmt - vorbehaltlich einer verbindlichen Resolution der Afrikanischen Union, die noch aussteht. Für den Bundeswehr-Einsatz stimmten 564 Bundestagsabgeordnete der Union, der SPD, der FDP und der Grünen. Gegen den Einsatz stimmten 40 Abgeordnete, überwiegend Abgeordnete der Linksfraktion, wobei sich 15 Links-Abgeordnete wie beispielsweise der verteidigungspolitische Sprecher der Fraktion, Paul Schäfer, sowie Gregor Gysi der Stimme enthielten. Nach Auffassung der Sprecher des Bundesausschusses Friedensratschlag, Lühr Henken und Peter Strutynski, dient der Bundeswehreinsatz vermutlich dazu, Präsenz in der erdölreichen West-Provinz Darfur zu zeigen. Die vermeintliche "humanitäre Hilfe" sei möglicherweise nur ein "Deckmantel, unter dem nationale Energie-Interessenpolitik" betrieben werde.

Villagers unite to battle phone mast proposals

By Kirsty Nicolson

Deeping Gate residents fighting against a mobile phone mast have met to draw up battle lines against the proposal.

Residents of Deeping Gate will be visiting the High Court on July 12 in a bid to quash a decision to establish the 80ft mast in Mumby's Yard, Suttons Lane.

They fear that the device could have dire consequences for electo-magnetically sensitive Pam Harris whose home will lie under its shadow.

Mrs Harris has to be hooked up to a machine for 17 hours every day to have essential nutrients pumped into her body.

She says if the mast goes ahead she will be forced to move house because of fears emissions from it may make the machine malfunction – with dire consequences.

She met with other residents at Northborough Village Hall to discuss the case – and encourage people to help fund their campaign.

She said: "The support we have had has been tremendous. We just decided to bite the bullet and fight this thing."

At the meeting, the chief executive of the Samworth Brothers, which owns the pastie group Ginsters, Brian Stein, talked about his experiences as a person who is electro-magnetically sensitive.

He says he developed the condition after using a mobile phone for 15 years and now gets cramps or even internal bleeding if exposed to emissions for too long.

In an inspirational talk, he told how he cannot use computers, modern cars or watch television without feeling very ill and he warned that people still do not yet know the long-term effects mobile technology has on health.

He said to guests: "These things may not have an effect on you, but they might your children.

"Don't stop your fight."

At the meeting villagers were urged to continue to raise funds to fight their cause.

They have so far mustered together £11,500, but they still need another £5,500 to cover fees which may be incurred if they lose the case.

Richard Thomas, who was chairing the meeting, said he was confident villagers could win the battle. He added: "However, I would urge people to help us raise the funds in case we need them.

"There is every chance you will get the money back."

John and Debs
Parsonage are two people who will live near the proposed mast.

Mrs Parsonage said: "This is all about money.

"We don't what the health effects of this mast are. We have two young children and we are concerned."

A spokesman for Hutchinson 3G said: "A claim has not been made against Hutchison 3G. The case has been brought by Pamela Harris against the Treasury Solicitor to challenge Peterborough City Council's planning decision. Therefore, Hutchison 3G is currently not in a position to comment on the actual case."

The company said there is little proven scientific evidence to support the idea of electromagnetic hypersensitivity and, according to the World Health Organisation's (WHO) fact sheet on electromagnetic hypersensitivity, base stations and mobile phone telophony have not been shown to cause such symptoms.

Chaos Computer Club ruft zum Boykott der biometrischen Vollerfassung auf

Freitag letzter Woche wurde das neue Passgesetz im Bundesrat durchgewunken. Damit werden ab dem 1. November zusätzlich zum digitalen Gesichtsbild die Abdrücke zweier Finger in den Reisepass aufgenommen. Erneut wurde trotz der Kritik aller Experten [1] eine teure Sicherheitssimulation ohne Nutzen beschlossen.

Unter den Beteiligten ist längst klar, dass die Einführung der Fingerabdrücke in den Reisepass kein Mehr an Sicherheit bringt. Stattdessen wird die gesamte Bevölkerung nun auf den Meldeämtern erkennungsdienstlich behandelt. “Wie Kriminelle werden die Bürger gezwungen, ihre Fingerabdrücke beim Staat abzuliefern, ohne dass die Bundesregierung jemals sinnvoll begründet hat, warum diese biometrische Vollerfassung nötig ist”, sagte der CCC-Sprecher Andy Müller-Maguhn.

Der Grund für die biometrische Überwachungsmaßnahme liegt im immer weiter wachsenden Interesse des Staates an der Erfassung aller Daten seiner Bürger. Ganz nebenher wird aber auch die Biometrie- und RFID-Industrie gefördert. Die Interessenverquickung zwischen Politikern, wie z. B. Ex-Innenminister Schily [2], und der Industrie ist äußerst anrüchig. Hier wird offensichtlich nicht im Sicherheitsinteresse der deutschen Bevölkerung gehandelt, sondern direkt in die eigenen Taschen gewirtschaftet.

In der Praxis hat die Aufnahme der Fingerabdrücke für den Reisenden unangenehme Auswirkungen. Großflächige statistische Untersuchungen zeigen, dass 3 bis 5 Prozent der Bevölkerung keine ausgeprägten Fingerabdrücke aufweisen. Besonders häufig werden hier ältere Menschen diskriminiert. Auffallen werden die damit verbundenen Probleme erst beim Versuch eines Grenzübertrittes außerhalb der Schengen-EU. Die Konsequenzen für den Reisenden reichen nach Auskunft des Bundesinnenministeriums von gesonderter Behandlung mit verschärfter Kontrolle bis zur Rückweisung. Das gleiche gilt bei defektem RFID-Chip.

“Mit dem sofortigen, schrankenlosen Online-Abruf der Passbilder schon bei Ordnungswidrigkeiten wird eine neue Dimension des staatlichen Biometrieterrors gegen die Bürger erreicht. Kombiniert mit Verfahren zur automatischen Gesichtserkennung sind der permanenten Alltagsüberwachung nun keine Grenzen mehr gesetzt”, sagte CCC-Sprecher Andy Müller-Maguhn.

Der Chaos Computer Club ruft daher alle Bürger auf, die Abnahme der Fingerabdrücke zu boykottieren. Bereits wenn sich ein kleiner Teil der Bevölkerung der erkennungsdienstlichen Behandlung verweigert, kann die Totalüberwachung noch verhindert werden.

Gonzales Meeting With Goodling Scrutinized

The Justice Department is investigating whether Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales sought to improperly influence the testimony of a departing senior aide. The Senate Judiciary Committee said their inquiry into the firings of nine US attorneys includes an examination of a meeting Gonzales held in mid-March with his then Aide Monica M. Goodling, who testified last month that the attorney general's comments during the session made her feel "a little uncomfortable."

Das Kriegsunternehmen Irak: Eine Zwischenbilanz

Alle von den USA genannten Kriegsgründe haben sich als Lügen erwiesen. Der irakischen Bevölkerung hatte die US-Regierung Demokratie, Freiheit und Menschenrechte versprochen. Doch heute befindet sich das Land in einer nicht enden wollenden Gewaltspirale. Die permanenten militärischen Auseinandersetzungen verdecken den von Besatzerseite zielgerichtet betriebenen Nation-Building-Prozeß, mit dem v.a. für die künftige Wirtschaftsordnung schwer widerrufliche Fakten geschaffen werden. Das große Plündern hat begonnen. Im Irak überlagern sich heute viele Konflikte, die eine differenzierte Analyse erfordern. Der breiten Unterstützung des Widerstandes gegen die Besatzung steht eine ebenso weite Ablehnung des Terrors gegen die Zivilbevölkerung gegenüber. Die zunehmende Islamisierung der Gesellschaft bedroht den bisherigen säkulären Konsens und hat dramatische Auswirkungen auf die Rechte und Lebenbedingungen von Frauen. In dieser ersten aktuellen Analyse nach dem Einmarsch der USA in den Irak geht Brigitte Kiechle darüberhinaus ausführlich auf den hier wenig beachteten Widerstand von Gewerkschaften, Arbeitslosen- und Frauenorganisationen sowie Selbstorganisationsstrukturen ein.

America’s undisclosed vice president

Christian Science Monitor
by Daniel Schorr

06/15/07

Dick Cheney, he of the undisclosed location, is at it again. He’s keeping secrets. You may recall that early in the Bush administration, the vice president refused to disclose which energy companies he had consulted on energy policy. He fought that issue up through the courts and won. Recently, we learned that Mr. Cheney sought to override the Justice Department’s objections to a secret surveillance program. The vice president’s office even blocked the promotion of a senior Justice Department official who had opposed the surveillance operation. It turns out that Cheney and other White House officials attended a secret meeting in March 2004. They wanted Attorney General John Ashcroft, from his hospital bed, to approve the continuation of the possibly illegal surveillance program. To his credit, Ashcroft refused. And we learned about another of Cheney’s furtive ways this past week. The Secret Service recently ended the practice of keeping logs of visitors to the president and the vice president...

The Pentagon V. Peak Oil

Michael T. Klare writes: "Sixteen gallons of oil. That's how much the average American soldier in Iraq and Afghanistan consumes on a daily basis - either directly, through the use of Humvees, tanks, trucks and helicopters, or indirectly, by calling in air strikes. Multiply this figure by 162,000 soldiers in Iraq, 24,000 in Afghanistan and 30,000 in the surrounding region (including sailors aboard US warships in the Persian Gulf), and you arrive at approximately 3.5 million gallons of oil: the daily petroleum tab for US combat operations in the Middle East war zone.
