'Anarchist Blogger' finally freed

05-04-2007 18:43

There has been some really good reporting here on Josh Wolf, the 'anarchist blogger' . He went to prison rather than submit video of an 'anachist rally' to a federal judge in the July '05 G8 clashes in California. I just thought it was worth mentioning to all the previous posters that he has finally been released after spending more time inside than any other journalist.

G8 2005 Indy Reporter Josh Wolf Freed after 226 Days in Jail

Reporter Josh Wolf Freed - Thanks to all who campaigned on this one....

Sharing of Unedited Video and Minor Grand Jury Cooperation Leads to Release

On April 3rd, independent reporter Josh Wolf was freed from federal custody after spending 7 1/2 months in prison for failing to turn over video footage to a federal grand jury. The unedited video was the target of the federal grand jury subpoena that caused him to be held at the federal holding facility, in Dublin, CA for over 226 days, a record amount of time for any journalist in U.S. history.

That morning, Josh wrote on his blog, "During the course of this saga I have repeatedly offered to allow a judge to be the arbiter over whether or not my video material has any evidentiary value. Today, you the public have the opportunity to be the judge and I am confident you will see, as I do, that there is nothing of value in this unpublished footage."

Arab Perspective: Playing US Politics with Iraqi Blood for Oil

05-04-2007 08:48

US Democrats in opposition and the ruling Republicans have embroiled the American public in a political crisis over deadlines for combat operations in Iraq that could develop into a constitutional showdown, but for Arabs and Iraqis it is merely playing electoral politics with Iraqi blood for oil because the Democratic Alternative, when scrutinized, promises them no fundamental change.

Refuting Steven Pinker’s “A History of Violence”

05-04-2007 02:10

"Though the sophistication of traditional theology is lacking, the similarity of themes and style is striking. It reveals the extent to which worship of the state has become a secular religion for which the intellectuals serve as priesthood. The more primitive sectors of Western culture go further, fostering forms of idolatry in which such sacred symbols as the flag become an object of forced veneration, and the state is called upon to punish any insult to them and to compel children to pledge their devotion daily, while God and State are almost indissolubly linked in public ceremony and discourse, as in James Reston's musings on our devotion to the will of the Creator. It is perhaps not surprising that such crude fanaticism rises to such an extreme in the United States, as an antidote for the unique freedom from state coercion that has been achieved by popular struggle." -- Noam Chomsky
