Prisoner of Conscience-TRE ARROW
"Over the course of the past fourteen years I have lived a life dedicated to peaceful activism in social, environmental and political realms. I have followed a path dedicated to the Buddhist and Essene religions for several years. These faiths are committed to a life of peaceful existence, expressing honour, respect and care for every living thing, both human and non-human. Every thought, action, word, purchase and food choice is considered with regard to the impact on the earth and any suffering that may be caused as a consequence. The U.S. government and media have attempted to brand me a "terrorist". I cannot think of a label that is more contrary to the truth. I am a pacifist." - Tre Arrow

When Propaganda Controls America’s Thinking
Oswald Spengler, Author Propaganda is a science. No one knows that better than the Bush-Cheney Gang. It cleverly used every scare tactic and lie available to con the country into the Iraqi War. In the Dubai port deal, those same kinds of ruses were turned against it. George Bush was hoisted up on his own petard. The great Oswald Spengler reminds us of how the Media can influence us, via repetition, into believing any kind of lie. Now, will the U.S. be lied into a war with Iran?

In that most sacred declaration its signatories recognized the essential rights of all men and women to live freely, in the pursuit of their happiness.

The Dark Side of Liberal Imperialism
More than four years after the September 11 attacks and three years after the U.S. invasion of Iraq, neither the war in Afghanistan, nor the war in Iraq appears to be drawing to a close. This is despite the fact that hundreds of thousands have protested the war in Iraq and more than 60 percent of Americans support partial or full withdrawal from Iraq. Fewer than four in ten Americans support President Bush today.

In a climate like this, the antiwar movement should be making great strides. The Bush administration should be on the run, if not teetering on the verge of collapse. Yet the administration plows ahead, and the antiwar movement appears disoriented only months after Cindy Sheehan's vigil at Bush's ranch helped to revive its fortunes.

End the Israeli Occupation There is an 11th Commandment! It states: "Thou Shalt Not Criticize the Zionists." Recently, the Brit's Royal Court Theater wanted to put on a play, in NYC, entitled, "My Name is Rachel Corrie." Corrie was the peace activist, who was killed by an Israeli bulldozer, on March 16, 2003, in Occupied Gaza. The NYC theater company, however, has "postponed" the production because Jewish leaders objected to it. This is an example of that 11th Commandment!

NPR calling eco-charges excessive - Lauren Regan on now!
Hi folks -

Just a quick heads up - tonight on ATC, Lauren's voice (and excellent thoughts and words) provide the lead-in audio quote for the start of the program.

The piece runs in the first 30 minutes (the 5-5:30 feed on the West Coast)

Lauren, you rock! Thanks for all your work and this great re-framing.

And the focus on the absurd disparity between the probation sentence given the USFS serial arsonist versus the life terms facing the eco-arrestees is compelling (NPR thought so, anyway...).

Harsh Sentences Silence Radical Environmentalists

Listen to this story... by Martin Kaste

All Things Considered, March 8, 2006 · The radical environmentalists of Eugene, Ore., have disappeared or gone quiet. Some say it's because of a government crackdown that includes stiff fines and harsh prison sentences. The sentences have been so harsh, in fact, that even a victim of one arson attack isn't sure it was fair.
