New Anti-H.R. blog
"Human Recourses (Ree-Kor-Sez) is real and straight talk about work, jobs, wage slavery, unions, the guvmint, employers, and other topics related to the real world of employment. As an antidote to the company line, and the synchopants that seem to tow it in governments and union bureaucracies, we will attempt in earnest to simply call bullshit; and provide some insight on what to do about it..."

Kathy Kelly to James Baker: “Tell the Truth about Iraq!”
Kathy Kelly Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Kathy Kelly, gave a talk at the UMBC campus, on Nov. 20, 2006. She mocked the ex-Secretary of State, James Baker, for saying he wasn't going to "wring his hands" about past mistakes in Iraq. Baker heads up the so-called "Iraq Study Group." Kelly roared: "We will wring our hands! One of the ways to stop this next war is to tell the truth about this war. And, it's not going to be such a pleasant mirror to look into."

Thank You From Grand Jury Resistor Jeff Hogg
Thanks you so so much to everyone who supported Cecilia and I with love, letters, food, money, legal representation, outreach & media work, organizing fundraisers (especially the garage sale), yardwork, firewood, palm readings, cranio-sacral body work, and loaned-cars that allowed Ceci to make the 5 hour drive to visit me when our car broke. It is important that as a community we stood up against Grand Juries and the McCarthy-esque Green Scare. My role was no more important than yours. We couldn't have done it without you. This has been a success for us all in community-building at a time when the Federales have been spreading divisiveness. Hooray for solidarity! All for one and one for all!

Let's continue this support for the other Grand Jury resistors in San Francisco and wherever else they may be.

Love,
Jeff & Cecilia

Call for draft, more troops to Iraq would spread Iraq war to USA
Rangel is calling for a return to the draft, while McCain is calling for sending MORE troops to Iraq in a futile attempt to defeat both the brutal civil war and the popular resistance to US occupation.
Counterinsurgency experts estimate ONE MILLION TROOPS would be "needed" in Iraq. That return to the draft that Rangel wants would be the only way to get them.

Karen Armstrong Karen Armstrong is an author, Feminist and scholar. On Nov. 16, 2006, she gave a talk in Washington, D.C., on the role of Religion in the Arab-Israeli dispute. Armstrong said that the problem was essentially "political," but because it had been allowed to fester, it has taken on significant "symbolic" meanings for Muslims, Christians and Jews alike. She sharply criticized the Christian Right for its literal interpretation of the Book of Revelations.

palestine journal: 16 november - the lame duck massacres
soooo...while the lame-duck congress in the US goes ahead with passing some of the most draconian laws yet, like the one they passed yesterday that makes protesting animal cruelty at a circus or an animal lab a terrorist act (!) -- which, by the way, goes right along with their stated priorities of 'who is a threat'......ie. not bin laden or the saudis who fund him.... but instead, as the FBI has stated publicly on multiple occasions, their 'Number One Domestic Terrorist Threat' is the 'animal
liberation front', an organization that has never ever been charged with killing or hurting anyone, but whose only purpose is to rescue animals from cruel conditions (!)....

A New Approach to Justice From The Doors Of A Mexican Consulate: From PDX to Oaxaca
Oaxaca occupies a sacred place in my heart; her mountains, coast, mole and native corns nourished my spirit for a good part of the years I lived in Mexico and her people—mis companeros/as—have been my teachers and friends.

But this has been a sad couple of weeks.

October 31 I found myself locked to the front door of the Mexican Consulate in Portland, Oregon to protest the violent repression against the People's Popular Assembly of Oaxaca (APPO), a peaceful resistance movement in Oaxaca.
