Arbeitskreis ruft zu Protest gegen Vorratsdatenspeicherung auf

Der Arbeitskreis Vorratsdatenspeicherung (AK Vorrat) ruft für Samstag, den 31. Mai zu einem bundesweiten Aktionstag auf. Unter dem Motto "Freiheit statt Angst" erwarten die Veranstalter in mehr als 30 Städten insgesamt rund 20.000 Teilnehmer, sagte der Sprecher der Ortsgruppe Hamburg am 30. Mai. In der Hansestadt rechne man mit mindestens 500 Teilnehmern. Mit dem Aktionstag soll gegen die Protokollierung der Telekommunikation und andere Überwachungsmaßnahmen demonstriert werden. Die zunehmende elektronische Erfassung und Überwachung der gesamten Bevölkerung bringe keinen verbesserten Schutz vor Kriminalität, koste jedoch Millionen und gefährde die Privatsphäre aller Bürger.

Künstliche Mineralfasern, Krebsverdacht, ganz Deutschland ist "verfasert"

"Der zweite Schornstein enthält einen Kern mit künstlichen Mineralfasern die im Verdacht steht, krebserregend zu sein und laut Emissionsschutzgesetz nicht in die Umwelt gelangen dürfen. Deshalb kann dieser Schornstein nicht gesprengt werden."

Anmerkung von Dugi: Millionen von Dachgeschossen, Fertighäusern, Wärmedämmungen usw. usw. wurden in den letzten vier Jahrzehnten mit künstlichen Mineralfasern (KMF) „ausgerüstet“, die als KREBS-AUSLÖSEND eingestuft sind. Diese Quellen geben STÄNDIG Mineralfasern in die Umwelt ab !

Former Prosecutors Challenge White House Immunity Claim

Marisa Taylor, of McClatchy Newspapers: "Twenty former US attorneys, both Republicans and Democrats, urged a federal judge Thursday to intervene in a constitutional battle over whether two White House officials should be forced to testify before Congress about the firings of nine US attorneys. The former top prosecutors, including two who served under President Bush, argue in court papers that the judge should reject the Bush administration's assertion of blanket immunity for presidential chief of staff Joshua Bolten and former White House counsel Harriet Miers in the congressional investigation."

Internet Attacked as Tool of Terror

Matt Renner, of Truthout: "A controversial plan to study and profile domestic terrorism was scrapped after popular push back, however, the spirit of the legislation lives on in Senator Joe Lieberman's office. HR 1955, 'The Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007' passed the House in October 2007 with almost unanimous support. The bill immediately came under fire from civil liberties watchdogs because of what many saw as a deliberate targeting of Muslims and Arabs and the possible chilling effect it might have on free speech."

The mealy bug has entered Vidarbha cotton fields through the Bt cottonseed

ISIS Press Release 30/05/08

Letters to the Editor

Deadly gift from Monsanto to India

To follow up on your articles, Organic Cotton Beats Bt Cotton in India (SiS 27) and Message from Andra Predesh: Return to organic cotton & avoid the Bt cotton trap (SiS 29), I enclose photographs of mealy bugs infested cotton plants in the demonstration plots of different seed companies in Vidarbha: Ganga Kavari, Paras Bbhrahma, and Banny. All of the plots have the Bollgard label. These mealy bugs have never been in our region on any plants before Bt cotton was introduced. I learned about the devastation of cotton in China two years ago. This alerted me to photograph and video the demonstration plots regularly. So, anybody can say with confidence now that the mealy bug has entered Vidarbha cotton fields through the Bt cottonseed.

Now when the cotton plants have died, the mealy bug is shifting to nearby plants. By mid June, farmers will go for the new cotton crop or plant another crop. But before that, the bug will have multiplied like any thing. It has shifted to Congress weed nearby, and many other weeds and plants in gardens.

At the same time I am studying the sudden death of plants. The new generation cotton seeds, called ‘Research Hybrid seeds’; are all male sterile. In short, they are terminator seeds; and proven by the high-level government committee in1993. I have the report of it. The breeder then published an article advising farmers that they should not use the F2 seeds of such hybrids, as the plants coming out of them are
100 percent sterile. Your article, Killing Fields Near You (ISIS News7/8) confirmed this for me.

I am an organic farmer residing at Yavatmal in the state of Maharashtra. Our organisation, Vidarbha Organic Farmers Association, has been propagating organic farming since 1994. We have been helped a lot by Dr Vandana Shiva. She was the first person to tell us about about terminators. Right now, we are working for her organisation Navdanya.

What to do about the price of oil

Huffington Post
by Robert Weissman


Is Big Oil ripping off consumers? Are Wall Street speculators manipulating oil markets? What should be done? Whether or not Big Oil is improperly restricting refinery capacity, whether or not Wall Street traders are driving up the traded price of oil to heights completely disconnected from supply-and-demand fundamentals, a few things are clear about gas prices — and so is the most appropriate, immediate policy response. Current pricing arrangements are generating profit gushers for the large, integrated oil companies — ExxonMobil, ChevronTexaco and the like. While the price of oil is going up, these companies’ drilling expenses are not. Oil can trade at $40 a barrel, $90 a barrel, or $130 a barrel. It still costs ExxonMobil and the rest of Big Oil only about $20 to get a barrel of oil out of the ground...

Because the Bush administration did nothing to make mass transit more convenient and accessible, many Americans who want to quit paying for high-priced oil don't have that choice."'s+Future

Congress Poised to Grant Telcoms Spying Immunity

For McCain, a Switch on Telecom Immunity?

The Washington Post's Jonathan Weisman and Ellen Nakashima write: "A top lawyer for Senator John McCain's presidential campaign said telecommunications companies should be forced to explain their role in the Bush administration's warrantless surveillance program as a condition for legal immunity for past wiretapping, a statement that stands in marked contrast to positions taken by President Bush, McCain and other Republicans in Congress."

McCain (Mis)Speaks

Christopher Cerf and Victor S. Navasky write for TomDispatch: "The Iraq war was a disaster for Iraq, a disaster for the United States, a disaster for the Middle East, a disaster for the world community, but most of all, it was a disaster for the experts. They were wrong about its difficulty. (It was to be either 'a cakewalk' or 'a walk in the park' - take your pick.)"

Congress Poised to Grant Telcoms Spying Immunity

Matt Renner reports for Truthout, "After months of negotiations behind closed doors, a supposed compromise has been reached on an extremely controversial spying bill. However, critics charge that the new bill is actually a capitulation by Democrats who had previously stood up against the Bush administration and members of their own party."

FISA Overhaul Set to Clear Senate

In Congressional Quarterly, Tim Starks reports: "Despite a deep divide among Democrats, the Senate is expected to clear legislation this week overhauling electronic surveillance rules that would grant President Bush much of what he has sought in a lengthy struggle with Congress. With no senators threatening to hold up the bill (HR 6304), one of the last hopes for opponents faded June 20 when Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois announced he would vote for the legislation. Some civil liberties groups that oppose the measure had called on Obama to use his position in the party to derail it."


Bush’s latest powers, courtesy of the Democratic Congress

by Glenn Greenwald


CQ reports (sub. req.) that ‘a final deal has been reached’ on FISA and telecom amnesty and ‘the House is likely to take up the legislation Friday.’ I’ve now just read a copy of the final ‘compromise’ bill. It’s even worse than expected. When you read it, it’s actually hard to believe that the Congress is about to make this into our law. Then again, this is the same Congress that abolished habeas corpus with the Military Commissions Act, and legalized George Bush’s warrantless eavesdropping program with the ‘Protect America Act,’ so it shouldn’t be hard to believe at all...

FISA deal would shield telecom accomplices

CNN Money


Senior U.S. House and Senate Republicans said Thursday that civil court cases against phone companies that participated in the government’s warrantless surveillance program will be tossed out of court as a result of the deal struck between the House and White House. … The agreement announced earlier Thursday resolves a long-running dispute over whether companies like AT&T Inc. (T) and Verizon Communications Inc. (VZ) could be sued for agreeing to let the government tap the phones and read the emails of customers in the years after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks...

House Members Expand Federal Police Powers in Sweeping New Bill

by NWV News

According to law enforcement experts, no where within the police function is there more potential for abuse than search and seizure. This latest bill -- if made into law -- would expand the government's surveillance abilities and grant retroactive immunity to telecoms for their role in post-9/11 mass domestic wiretapping. The Act, known more formally as H.R. 6304 and born after months of negotiations, represents a "bipartisan compromise.".......


The Democrats Betray the Fourth Amendment

A bill essentially legalizing Bush's warrantless surveillance program just sailed through the Democratic House and is expected to sail through the Democratic Senate.

Washington's Culture Of Deception

by Chuck Baldwin

A bomb exploded inside Washington, D.C., this week, and, no, it was not the work of a Middle Eastern terrorist. It was the work of former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan. He, perhaps more than anyone else, was the face of President Bush's White House. He faithfully served President George W. Bush for close to a decade and served as Bush's Press Secretary for some three years, resigning on April 19, 2006. He was also regarded as one of the most loyal and tight-lipped of the Bush insiders. However, his new book.......


McClellan Blames Bush, Not Aides, for Disillusionment

Johanna Neuman, of The Los Angeles Times, reports: "Former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan made clear today that it was President Bush - not the high-profile aides around him - who left him most disillusioned in the run-up to the Iraq War."
