ACLU: Subverting the Constitution, Swearing in Pennsylvania, and More

Sat, 08 Jan 2011 03:21:00 +0000

---------- Forwarded message ----------From: ACLU Online Date: Fri, Jan 7, 2011 at 3:10 PM Subject: Subverting the Constitution, Swearing in Pennsylvania, and MoreTo: david.chirot@gmail.com Unconstitutional Bill Aims to Subvert 14th Amendment State Legislators Considering Unconstitutional and Un-American Immigration Laws What Do These Three Things Have in Common? Government Should Investigate Denials of Emergency Care at Religiously-Affiliated Hospitals Thanks for the Shout Out, Mr. Vice President! It's Your Move, Congress: Stand Up for Net Neutrality Thanks for the Shout Out, Mr. Vice President! Earlier this week, when swearing-in newly-seated Senator Rand Paul, Vice President Biden, who serves as President of the Senate, said, "I never get along with any interest groups in the United States Senate. The only one that I really respect, and I don't agree with them most of the time, is the ACLU. Because they never, never vary. They have principles." We certainly appreciate the shout out from Vice President Biden. He understands what the ACLU has always been about at our core: we are committed to preserving and defending the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and ensuring that our rights and liberties are afforded to all, regardless of background or political belief. These principles have guided us well as an organization for over 90 years — and our country for over 200 years. We are proud of being the nation's foremost advocate for the rights of all, and we appreciate the Vice President's respectful acknowledgement of our work. back to top It's Your Move, Congress: Stand Up for Net Neutrality Late last month, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) passed a new rule clarifying the FCC's legal authority to enforce network neutrality principles. Network neutrality, also known as "net neutrality," principles protect free speech online by prohibiting the owner of a network from prioritizing some types of content on the Internet while slowing down others. First, the good news: the new rule prohibits wired broadband owners — usually telecom companies like Comcast and Verizon that provide cable and DSL service to homes and offices — from discriminating against information by throttling, slowing or otherwise tampering with the transfer of any data on the wired Internet. Now, the bad news, and it's pretty bad: the rule is on shaky legal footing and it doesn't apply to wireless Internet — the kind you access on your cell phone. The legal question is particularly frustrating. After the D.C. Circuit rejected the FCC's last efforts to establish open internet rules — largely because of questions over FCC authority — the ACLU and many other groups argued that broadband providers offer a telecommunications service and should therefore be regulated like telephone companies. Such a change would provide robust protections. Sadly, the FCC bowed to industry pressure and refused to adopt this change. "By creating two sets of regulations — one for the wired Internet and one for wireless broadband — and failing to ground them in the strongest legal protections available, the FCC has failed to protect free speech and Internet openness for all users," said Chris Calabrese, ACLU Legislative Counsel. "The ACLU will continue to fight for full network neutrality protections. Internet openness is key to protecting our First Amendment rights." Now that the FCC has voted, this issue is in Congress's hands. >> Take action! Tell your members of Congress we need strong net neutrality protections for the entire Internet, not just the wired one. back to top [...]



SOA WATCH: Justice Denied

Thu, 06 Jan 2011 19:17:00 +0000

---------- Forwarded message ----------From: SOA Watch Date: Thu, Jan 6, 2011 at 10:51 AM Subject: Justice DeniedTo: david.chirot@gmail.com Justice Denied: Activists Imprisoned, SOA Remains Open Federal Judge sentences SOA Watch activists to six months in prison Once again, the justice system's complicity with the abuses taught at the School of the Americas was exposed yesterday at the trial of anti-militarization activists Nancy Smith and Chris Spicer. Nancy, from New York, changed her plea to no contest and was immediately sentenced to 6 months in prison by Magistrate Judge Stephen Hyles. In the SOA Watch tradition of using the court to put a spotlight on the SOA/WHINSEC, Nancy affirmed that she "felt a strong moral imperative" to carry out her nonviolent act of civil disobedience "on behalf of those who have suffered so terribly". Chris, from Illinois, plead not guilty but was declared guilty by Judge Hyles and sentenced likewise to 6 months. In his closing statement before sentencing, Chris addressed the ongoing human rights abuses in Latin America carried out by graduates of the School of the Americas, and his need to confront the "paralysis of fear" that has gripped the country in recent times. In November, Franciscan priest Fr. Louis Vitale, OFM and David Omondi of the Los Angeles Catholic Worker Community both pled no contest and were sentenced to the maximum 6 months in jail. The decision by Judge Hyles to impose the maximum penalty for a nonviolent act of civil disobedience exposes the political nature of the trials and the justice system. However, we take the energy of Nancy, Christopher, David and Louis, along with the thousands of our brothers and sisters who have been massacred, raped, tortured and disappeared in their fight for a culture of peace with justice, and we will continue to move forward. We hope to see you all in Washington, DC, in April to bring the fight to close the SOA and end US militarism to the doorsteps of our policy makers. The struggle is long, but we will prevail! Nancy Smith gave an interview to Tamar Sharabi following Father Louis' trial in November in front of the courthouse in Georgia: Current Updates on Nancy and Chris: Nancy and Chris have now been transferred to the Irwin County, GA detention center where they will remain until further notice. Nancy can be written at the following address: Nancy H. Smith #7059 Irwin County Detention Center 132 Cotton Drive Ocilla, GA 31774 Chris can be written at the following address: Christopher Spicer #7060 Irwin County Detention Center 132 Cotton Drive Ocilla, GA 31774 Click here for tips about how to write to prisoners of conscience. We are not sure how long they will be there or when they will be transferred. Please be sure to check the webpage for the current addresses of Nancy and Chris. April Action DC In order to successfully combat the repressive foreign policy employed by the US government, we must make our voices heard. Join us in April, when we will converge in DC to resist militarization and promote a culture of peace! Join us in fasting, music, direct action, lobbying congress, the 5th Latin American Solidarity Conference and art among many other things!

SOA WATCH: letter from prison

Sat, 25 Dec 2010 18:26:00 +0000

---------- Forwarded message ----------From: SOA Watch Date: Sat, Dec 25, 2010 at 10:41 AM Subject: letter from prisonTo: david.chirot@gmail.com Dear David-baptiste, Hope this email finds you well. We just received the letter below from prison from Father Louis Vitale. Fr. Louis was arrested together with David Omondi, Nancy Smith and Chris Spicer by the Fort Benning military police during the November Vigil when they carried the call to close the SOA onto the military base. Father Louis and David were sentenced immediately to six months in federal prison. Nancy and Chris are currently preparing for their federal trials on January 5, 2011. They will use the courtroom to put the SOA itself on trial. Several others are also still facing charges after having been arrested by the Columbus police following the rally on November 20, 2010. Support the SOA Watch Legal Defense Fund with a contribution today. You'll find addresses to write to the prisoners below. Letter from Father Louis Vitale, SOA Watch Prisoner of Conscience: Two weeks have passed since David Omondi and I began our sojourn here at Irwin County Detention Center in southern Georgia. Some may say, "Vitale has protested himself back into the pokey below the Mason-Dixon line" and "He has been jailed again in an effort to bring peace and social justice." SF Chronicle 11/28 Many ask, "Why do you keep doing this?" We try to respond: "Because the oppression goes on and our nation is a major participant in that oppression of the poor and of all creation." Specifically this manifestation of mourning focuses on the School of the Americas (WHINSEC) at Ft. Benning, Georgia, where U.S. military have taught counter-insurgency techniques, including torture and disappearance, to Latin American military. It still goes on, as recently observed with the outrageous coup in Honduras carried out by graduates of the School of the Americas. In fact, our involvement in oppressive militarism extends throughout the world! But why so many times at Ft. Benning (my fourth arrest and incarceration, and so far from my home base)? The School of the Americas is an icon of our intrusion into developing countries over many years and the source of horrific massacres including religious leaders and thousands of peasants. Also Ft. Benning is a major military base feeding vast numbers into the war machine. Thousands gather annually to mourn the victims and to call for an end to our war machine that continues to grow into more bases, nuclear weapons manufacturing facilities, even into space war (and the new X-37B militarized version of the space shuttle). Are we ready to declare peace and act in its presence? Let's call - with all our energy - for nonviolent solutions now, transforming many peoples' lives and our world. Our work is cut out for us as we must be vigilant and active with nonviolent resistance. May we move towards peace in the new year. [Louie, serving a 6 month sentence for trespass at Ft. Benning, was moved from the Irwin County Detention Center on December 15, and is currently in transit. We will let you know as soon as he reaches his final destination.] Write the the Prisoners of Conscience To write to Louis, please direct correspondence to: Fr. Louis Vitale, c/o The Nuclear Resister, P.O. Box 43383, Tucson, AZ 85733To write to Michael David Omondi, also sentenced to six months for trespass at Ft.

MoMA and Cinecitta Luce celebrate Bernardo Bertolucci with a complete career retrospective

Share this announcement on:  Facebook | Delicious | Twitter Bernardo Bertolucci The Roy and Niuta Titus Theaters 1 & 2 December 15, 2010 – January 12, 2011 The Museum of Modern Art, New York MoMA AND CINECITTÀ LUCE CELEBRATE LEGENDARY DIRECTOR BERNARDO BERTOLUCCI WITH A COMPLETE CAREER RETROSPECTIVE This comprehensive 20-film survey, presented in collaboration with Cinecittà Luce, Rome, celebrates the work of Bernardo Bertolucci, one of the great living practitioners of the art of cinema. All of the prints in this series are newly remastered by Cinecittà Luce, with sound and color correction overseen by several of the cinematographers who have worked with the director, including Vittorio Storaro, Darius Khondji, and Fabio Cianchetti. Featured screenings include The Conformist (1970)—a film that has deeply influenced American filmmakers as diverse as Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg—and a rare presentation of Bertolucci's documentary Oil (La via del petrolio) (1967), a major rediscovery at the 2007 Venice Film Festival. At the age of 21, Bernardo Bertolucci debuted at the Venice Film Festival with his first film, La commare secca (The Grim Reaper) (1962); he has since gone on to earn every award and accolade to which a filmmaker can aspire. Tirelessly experimental in form and content, his films have enjoyed both popular and critical acclaim. Renowned for pushing the boundaries and creating works for adventurous audiences, his oeuvre also contains its share of popular blockbusters, including The Last Emperor (1987), which garnered nine Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director. Watching the films in this series together, one witnesses Bertolucci's development as an artist, from grappling with the influence of cinematic trends and filmmaking icons to developing and refining his own voice, and ultimately becoming an enormously influential auteur who creates films of beauty and consequence. This complete retrospective also includes such revered films as Ultimo tango a Parigi (Last Tango in Paris) (1972), starring Marlon Brando and Maria Schneider; Novecento (1900) (1976) with Robert De Niro, Gérard Depardieu, and Donald Sutherland; The Sheltering Sky (1990) with Debra Winger, John Malkovich, and Campbell Scott; Little Buddha (1993) with Keanu Reeves, Bridget Fonda, and Chris Isaak; Stealing Beauty (1996), with Liv Tyler, Sinéad Cusack, and Jeremy Irons; and The Dreamers (2003), with Michael Pitt, Eva Green, and Louis Garrel. A full screening schedule is available at MoMA.org/film. The exhibition is co-produced by the Department of Film of The Museum of Modern Art and Cinecittà Luce, Rome. It is organized by Jytte Jensen, Curator, Department of Film; Camilla Cormanni and Paola Ruggiero, Cinecittà Luce; and Alessandra Bracaglia. Bernardo Bertolucci is supported by the Cinema Department of the Italian Ministry of Culture and by eni, a major integ[...]

First the news media myth.

Now Time Magazine has elevated Facebook front man
Mark Zuckerberg along with Hilter...Stalin...Kissinger...
John Foster Dulles..and other "winners" to the rank of
"Man of the Year."

Created in a college dorm?

Maybe.

But here's what's really behind Facebook and why
the media machine is working so hard to make sure
people look the other way...

I don'twant to believe that something like this is possible, and I want to doall I can to stop what Israel is trying to do to him.On November 28th, Adnan, a Silwan grassroots organizer, receivedwritten notification that Israel intends to issue an order expellinghim for a four months period from his city - Jerusalem. Adnan is aresident of Silwan, and a member of the al-Bustan Neighborhood'scommittee, which was formed to oppose plans for massive housedemolitions. In a reality where Palestinians' right for freedom ofexpression in not even lip service, organizing your community againstits impending destruction is reason enough to be ripped from it.The order against Adnan is not part of a legal process wheresuspicions, charges or evidence have any part. It is an administrativeorder that circumvents the rule of law, which forms the foundation ofwestern democracy. In this harsh reality, a person's rights are takenwithout due process, with no charges, based on secret evidence andwith no possibility to truly defend oneself. It is the essence of aKafkaesque legal procedure in the taunting maze of the Occupation'sbureaucracy and power.But it is not too late to act up and make a difference.

-------------------------------------------------

Dear Friend of Palestine,
We have just returned from an eye-opening three-week trip to the West
Bank and Gaza, where we visited 33 of our partner organizations.
Grantees and ordinary Palestinians alike gave us a stark picture of
the economic reality on the ground in Palestine. Despite reports
that the West Bank economy is booming, most Palestinians told us that
they were not benefiting from recent growth, which is concentrated in
Ramallah. Despite the recent "easing" of the Israeli blockade, the
World Bank estimates that unemployment is at 39%, and 96% of private
sector jobs have been eliminated since 2007. Palestinians told us
that they don’t want "handouts" – they want to live and
work in their homeland and exercise greater control over their lives.
In the short-term, we cannot expect an end to the Israeli occupation
and the blockade, which is essential for large-scale economic revival.
So what can we do?

Sincerely,
Melinda Borne, Director of Programs Tarek Abuata, Director of Partner
Relations United Palestinian Appeal, Inc. 1330 New Hampshire Ave NW

Posted By: Brian Evans
To: Members in Abolish The Death Penalty!

-------------------------------------------------

In 2010, executions in the U.S. continued (in only 12 states), states
resorted to secret (probably illegal) drug purchases to feed their
execution habit, and authorities failed to guarantee that no innocent
person will be executed. Not surprisingly, a recent poll found that
support for alternatives outweighs support for the death penalty by a
2-1 margin. Go to the blog to read about The Four Biggest Death
Penalty Trends in 2010.

What is the nature, and the future, of artmagazines? And how might we give form to the sprawling history of artin Los Angeles, a form that can be generative and productive, notmerely descriptive or fancifully speculative?Launched in October 2010, East of Borneo is a collaborative onlineart journal and multimedia archive that offers a new way to researchand present the various histories of contemporary art. Its hybridform—which publishes newly commissioned art writing within a largercontext of user generated material—reflects an editorial process ofthinking through the delights and constraints of printed magazines,and fully considering the transcendent possibilities of onlinepublishing today.East of Borneo is a new model for art publishing that rethinkstraditional editorial structures, using the power of networkedcollectivity to create depth and complexity. Articles incorporateweb-savvy multimedia footnotes that offer readers immediate access tothe primary materials--video, images, links and texts--that thewriters have used in their research. Readers can upload additionalitems of their own, creating a growing archive of relevant contentthat activates and enriches the editorial material, highlightingunexpected connections and encouraging new lines of thought.As you navigate the site today, you'll find a range of content thatreflects the sprawling, rhizomatic nature of Los Angeles as well asthe broader international art world.Recent articles include:Value Engineering: Roger Corman in His Own Contextby Michael Ned HolteMythology and the Remake: The Culture of Re-performance andStrategies of Simulationby Jenni SorkinCharacter Development: Brody Condon's Level5 and the Avant-LARP ofBecoming Selfby Jennifer KrasinskiKalifornienträumen: Bertolt Brecht's Los Angeles Poems and OtherSunstruck Germanic Spectersby Quinn LatimerFrom a Waxy Yellow Build-Up to a Nervous Breakdown: The FleetingExistence of Mary Hartman.

A few online publicationsallow readers a similarly multifaceted experience, although mostquarantine reader participation in the shadow zone reserved forcomments. Until now, no art publication has offered the kind of variedexperiences provided by East of Borneo."East of Borneo is quickly becoming a substantial repository ofinformation and interpretation from a multitude of perspectives.

Brasscheck TV: Government dirty tricks at peaceful demonstrations

Sat, 18 Dec 2010 00:41:00 +0000





David

Yet another "anti-terror" operation the
government engages in regularly.

When they're not groping us at airports...
...showing up at our front doors for "clarification"
of our political ideas...or sending paid operatives
to pose as members of community groups...
they like to play this game:

Sending police dressed up as demonstrators
to turn peaceful protests into riots.

This video comes from Canada, but the
technique is used in the US every day of
the week.

The truly bizarre thing is no one seems
to know about it.

Every demonstration should have teams
specifically charged with identifying these
gun thugs (they're easy to find), pointing
them out, and blowing their cover.

It's a matter of public safety as these creeps
are there specifically to incite violence.

Your tax dollars at work.

Here's how the adults deal with it.
