Medien lassen brisante Themen unter den Tisch fallen

HLV INFO 12/AT

13-02-2008

Die deutschsprachigen Medien haben nach Meinung der "Initiative Nachrichtenaufklärung" auch 2007 gesellschaftlich brisante Themen unter den Tisch fallen lassen ...

... Gleichzeitig litten sie unter dem Druck von Anzeigenkunden oder auch von Unternehmen und Lobbyisten, die die Berichterstattung über heikle Nachrichten mit Prozessandrohungen (!!!!!) verhinderten.

Die am Institut für Journalistik an der Technischen Universität Dortmund ansässige Initiative recherchiert seit 1997 solche vernachlässigten Themen, um sie in die öffentliche Diskussion einzubringen. Partner sind derzeit die Hochschule Darmstadt und die Universität Bonn. Aus den Vorschlägen wählt eine Jury einmal jährlich besonders relevante Themen aus. "Wir betreiben keine Journalisten-Schelte wegen vergessener Nachrichten, sondern hoffen, dass die Themen durch unsere Arbeit doch noch an die Öffentlichkeit gelangen", sagte Jakob. (dpa) / (jk/c't)

Debate Intensifies Over Role of Super Delegates

Peter Wallsten and Peter Nicholas report for The Los Angeles Times that it is likely that if neither Clinton nor Obama have enough delegates to clinch the nomination, then the victory would come from the votes of super delegates.

Auch 2008 wird der Anbau genmanipulierter Pflanzen auf Widerstand stoßen

In diesem Jahr sollen mehr genmanipulierte Pflanzen in Deutschland angebaut werden als 2007. Bislang wurde Genmais des Monsanto-Konzerns auf rund 4350 Hektar angemeldet. Über 96 Prozent dieser registrierten Anbaufläche befinden sich in den neuen Bundesländern, dort vor allem in Brandenburg, Sachsen und Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. In den alten Bundesländern soll Genmais fast ausschließlich in Bayern wachsen. Das Umweltinstitut München veröffentlicht täglich aktualisierte Zahlen und Hintergrundinformationen über den Umfang des geplanten Gentechnikanbaus. Erstmals werden dabei auch die zurückgezogenen Flächen berücksichtigt, die über erfolgreiche Proteste vor Ort Aufschluss geben. In den Vorjahren waren rund 1000 Hektar Bt-Mais weniger angebaut worden als ursprünglich angemeldet - oft aufgrund des massiven Widerstands von betroffenen Landwirten, Verbrauchern oder Grundstückseigentümern. Auch 2008 wird der Anbau genmanipulierter Pflanzen auf Widerstand stoßen.

//umweltinstitut.org/genmais2008


Die Universität Rostock will ab diesem Frühjahr in Ostdeutschland ein Freilandexperiment mit genmanipuliertem Weizen durchführen. Die Pflanzen sollen durch den Einbau eines so bezeichneten Killerproteins gegen eine Pilzerkrankung resistent sein. Die von Wissenschaftlern der Eidgenössischen Technischen Hochschule (ETH) Zürich entwickelten Gen-Pflanzen waren in der Schweiz schon 2004 in einem Freilandversuch erfolglos getestet worden. Da der Weizen auch riskante Antibiotikaresistenzgene enthält, wäre der beantragte Versuch in der Schweiz heute nicht mehr genehmigungsfähig. Unsere aktuelle Pressemitteilung dazu finden Sie hier: //umweltinstitut.org/pressemitteilungen/2008/2008_02_11-579.html

John McCain and the neocon resurgence

AntiWar.Com
by Philip Giraldi

02/12/08

With the withdrawal of Romney, Washington pundits unanimously agree that John McCain will defeat Huckabee to become the Republican nominee. McCain is the neocons’ anointed choice for president of the United States, and has been so for many years. He was their candidate when he ran against George Bush in the primaries in 2000 and again when he announced his candidacy for 2008. When McCain’s campaign underachieved last summer and it appeared that Rudy Giuliani would be the Republican candidate, many leading neocons, including Norman Podhoretz and Daniel Pipes, joined the New Yorker’s campaign. Now that Giuliani has withdrawn, they will presumably return home again, rejoining Robert Kagan and James Woolsey, both of whom have been with McCain since early 2007. That McCain is no traditional conservative if measured by his views on cultural and fiscal issues matters not at all...

McCain apes Bush on Iraq, as Dems stand passively by

Salon
by Gary Kamiya

02/12/08

John McCain’s Achilles’ heel should be Iraq. He is an unapologetic hawk at a time when only right-wing die-hards cling to that position. His hard-line insistence that U.S. troops must remain there until ‘victory,’ whatever that is, puts him at odds with a clear majority of the American people, who want the troops withdrawn soon. On the most critical issue facing the country, McCain’s position is indistinguishable from that of President Bush, whose 30 percent approval rating in a recent Associated Press-Ipso poll is at its lowest ever. With Rush Limbaugh and his ilk sulking, conservatives divided and demoralized, the war tab up to $2 trillion, and Democratic voters energized by their candidates and flocking to the polls in record numbers, McCain’s stance on Iraq should doom him in November. Yet the major polls — admittedly far from reliable this far in advance of the election — show a virtual dead heat in a hypothetical general election matchup, with McCain narrowly leading Hillary Clinton and narrowly trailing Barack Obama...

The new crime of thinking in the US

Hillsboro Times-Gazette
by Gary Barnett

02/12/08

It looks like the term ‘thought police’ just might take on a whole new and real meaning. This depends on what happens in the U.S. Senate after receiving House bill H.R. 1955: Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007. This act (now S-1959 — Senate version) is now being considered by Senate committees and, if passed by the Senate and signed by the president, will become law. Common sense would indicate that something this vague and dangerous would not make it out of committee, but considering that the House passed it on Oct. 23 with 404 ayes, six nays, and 22 present/not voting, I’m not holding my breath...

Privacy rights advocates slam plans to fingerprint, register visitors to EU

Fosters

02/12/08

Rights advocates called on European Union officials to reconsider proposals to be released Wednesday that foresee fingerprinting and electronically recording all foreigners who visit the EU.Franco Frattini, the EU’s justice and interior affairs commissioner is scheduled to present plans for an overhaul of security at the union’s borders that would replicate many U.S. border checks.

Some civil rights groups called Tuesday for the European Union to scrap similar ideas, saying they would do little to fight crime or terrorism.”You dehumanize foreigners and you collect their personal and sensitive information with no clear personal gains whatsoever,” said Gus Hosein, from Privacy International. He likened the EU plans to building a “fortress Europe” to keep foreigners out.

Hosein said he expected complaints from many visitors if EU governments adopt a U.S.-style fingerprinting system. In the United States, the program has not affected U.S. citizens, who do not have to have their fingers scanned when leaving or entering the country...

Executions may be carried out at Gitmo

Knoxville News Sentinel

02/12/08

If six suspected terrorists are sentenced to death at Guantanamo Bay for the Sept. 11 attacks, U.S. Army regulations that were quietly amended two years ago open the possibility of execution by lethal injection at the military base in Cuba, experts said Tuesday. Any executions would probably add to international outrage over Guantanamo, since capital punishment is banned in 130 countries, including the 27-nation European Union...

Questions over Wirral phone masts blunders

Feb 13 2008 by Liam Murphy, Liverpool Daily Post

SENIOR council officials in Wirral will face tough questions next week after opposition parties forced a special meeting to examine how the authority blundered over planning permission for four phone masts.

It is almost a year since the planning permission for four T-Mobile masts were refused by the council’s planning committee, but “administrative errors” meant the company was not informed.

Amazing "I'm On The Table" Video, A Primary Challenger For Pelosi



We have sent countless emails, faxes and made phone calls beyond measure, demanding that Congress actually stand up for itself and for us, and confront the runaway Constitutional train wreck that is the Cheney/Bush administration. But there comes a time in the course of human events when we ourselves have to stand up to those who we trusted to fight for us, but who have failed us, and challenge them for their own primary nominations in their own party.

Yet and still, first a brave candidate must step forward to make that challenge a reality, and in the 8th Congressional district of California, Shirley Golub has answered the call of destiny in her heart to make that happen. And Shirley has posted the most amazing video you ever saw to throw down that challenge, and you can see it at this page.

Shirley Golub "I'm On The Table" Video: //www.shirley08.com

What Shirley is doing is leading a weekly demonstration in front of Nancy Pelosi's district office, every Thursday at noon, at 450 Golden Gate Ave, to literally put herself on the table and say, "I'm on the table, Nancy, and as long as I am, impeachment is too.". And so too with every other issue we expected action on at least a year ago, ending the indefensible occupation of Iraq, and every other issue on which Congress seems incapable of confronting the most unpopular administration in American history.

By inviting all her fellow constituents to join her in demonstration that grows week by week, Shirley Golub is looking to demonstrate that we the people have the numbers to replace ANY member of Congress who thinks they can long ignore the voices of their constituents. Please watch Shirley's kickoff mobilization video:

Shirley Golub "I'm On The Table" Video: //www.shirley08.com

And then won't you consider making a contribution from the same page above to support this brave lady in her mission of destiny. But even if you can't make a contribution, please do all you can to spread the word about this video clip, both through the link above and on YouTube itself.

Shirley is also hoping to inspire others all around the country to mount their own primary challenges to other incumbents who don't get it. Because in most jurisdictions there is still time to do that for this election cycle.

And let there be more and more people at 450 Golden Gate Ave, at noon every week, and at like demonstrations all over the country, until Congress finally gets the message, that their own seats, which they thought were so safe, are now in real jeopardy because they would not do the people's business.

If you want to do more than just show up, if you want to make signs, help collect petition signatures, if you are a street artist, if you are progressive activist on any issue, let it all come together. Let a spontaneous people's movement self-assemble itself. And be part of it by bring there.

Paid for by Shirley Golub for Congress

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this alert as widely as possible.

ACTION ALERT UPDATE

PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY!

Global Ecological Emergency: Brazil Must Succeed in Keeping Soybeans Out of Amazon Rainforest

Rainforest Portal a project of Ecological Internet //www.rainforestportal.org/

February 12, 2008


TAKE ACTION

Only soy products that do not directly or indirectly destroy ancient rainforests, or intensify climate change and other problems inherent with large-scale industrial monocultures, will be tolerated in international markets

//www.rainforestportal.org/alerts/send.asp?id=brazil_agrofuel

The greatest emerging threat to Amazon rainforests and communities is industrial soy plantations. Huge mechanized, soy monocultures destroy tropical ecosystems, accelerate climate change and cause human rights abuses primarily to produce agrofuel and livestock feed. The soya industry wipes out biodiversity, destroys soil fertility, pollutes freshwater and displaces communities. Soybean production expands the agricultural frontier not only through fire and deforestation to clear ancient rainforests, but more importantly by pushing cattle ranches and displacing forest peoples further into natural rainforest ecosystems.

With rising soy and other agricultural commodity prices, there has been a marked increase in fires and Amazonian deforestation to clear new agricultural lands from primary rainforests. In reaction Brazil has again announced increased agricultural deforestation enforcement. Amazon rainforest sustainability critically depends upon new soybean production being kept out of ancient primary rainforest ecosystems. Let's continue the commitment of Ecological Internet's Earth Action Network to strongly speak ecological truth to intransigent power.
