Confronting the War Machine in the Pacific Northwest

17-03-2007 14:49

On March 5th, 2007, several people were attacked and at least three arrested by police in Tacoma, WA. at a series of protests against shipments of military supplies at the city's port. The reasons for the attacks and arrests were not clear to onlookers, who told the press that the protesters were doing nothing but holding signs. In an exchange I had with Jeff Berryhill of Olympia, WA (who was arrested along with Wally Cudderford and Caitlin Esworthy), I was told that all he was doing when he was shot with a rubber bullet by the police was "holding a sign that read "Courage to" (Courage to Resist is an organization supporting military resisters.) The next thing he knew he was hit in the thigh by a police-fired projectile. All of this occurred in the predawn hours of March 5th, 2007. The reason for the unusual timing of the arrests is because even though the protest began the evening before, the actual loading of the equipment did not begin until after midnight.

What Rachel Saw: Rachel Corrie & Palestine

16-03-2007 20:30

Like most IDF crimes, this one happened because the people involved no longer saw Corrie as a human being, but as "the other", dehumanized to the point where she could be killed with no second thoughts. (And the Plant's comments will only further demonstrate this.)

These killings only highlight the hatred that is indicative of such fundamentalist and racist ideologies such as Zionism.

Yet more injustice: appeal courts deny Newchurch 3

16-03-2007 16:31

Jonny Ablewhite, along with John Smith and Kerry Whitburn, had their appeal today against the draconian sentence of 12 years for activities related to Newchurch guinea pig farm. They received no reduction in sentence. The prosecution were even told they didn't need to present their case. This is indicative of the corruption of the judicial system and the state's repression of animal rights activists!

Bloggers vs. The Lobby

14-03-2007 23:38

This article explains quite eloquently why a Zionist Plant, and member of "IMC-Watch" (amongst other Hate Sites) feels compelled to monitor the site.

The Independent Media has all but decimated the carefully-crafted media veil keeping the reality of the Zionist war to wipe Palestine off the map from the general public.

Australians have become a victim of terrorism

13-03-2007 21:30

The John Howard government's terrorist antics have been the most dangerous acts of aggression on sovereign nations for 200 years. Why wouldn't people fear some form of retaliation or false flag terrorist act now? What you do is what you get! So why do it? Why take the risk? Then tell us about the risks because of what you do? Who should be scared? John Howard should be scared at the next election. We should be scared that he was elected last time and that the mass media power help reinforce that fear by propping up a war criminal and his governments terrorist antics.
