"Self-defense" is a right and a responsibility.
Below are two articles I feel are an important contribution to the current situation in this country. I am a firm believer, due to real-deal, living personal experience with the agents of repression, in the right to defend oneself from harm.
Don't get it twisted: I'm NOT down with political adventurism, random attacks on people I disagree with politically, or public posturing with loaded weapons. But I also see that the progressive community is woefully unprepared for the increasing repression coming from the government and its right-wing allies; mostly due to its general unwillingness to face the issue realistically, practice good strategy, and promote self-preservation; especially amongst the youth. Remember, "freedom" is only a concern of the living!
The Jacksonville Anarchist Black Cross teaches and advocates armed self-defense. I personally teach and advocate unarmed self-defense. Feel free to contact Jacksonville ABC ( jaxabcf@attbi.com) or myself ( gregoryclewis@yahoo.com) for more info.

Canada Mulls Tre Arrow Refugee Status
This sounds like encouraging news. The FBI has been smearing Tre with the 'T' word for years but never charged him as such. That could finally backfire. Stay strong Tre!

pull quote: "The Immigration and Refugee Board is scheduled to decide by May 31 whether Arrow is affiliated with the Earth Liberation Front, a group the FBI considers a terrorist organization responsible for scores of attacks on property over the past dozen years.

The board will also decide whether the ELF is a terrorist group, as the FBI asserts.

Arrow's defense attorney in immigration court, Negar Azmudeh, says Arrow's chances are good because American prosecutors have not specifically charged Arrow with terrorism."

U.S. Occupation Authority Says Berg Was Arrested By Iraqi Police, Who Deny Detention
there is a story recounted by an "unidentified foreign reporter" - and alternately by "Berg's friends" - that Berg was arrested in Mosul by Iraqi police.

a slightly modified version of the story goes that Berg was held only *briefly* by Iraqi police, and then turned over almost immediately to the U.S. military where he spent his detention. [U.S. occupation authorities will not comment on this version . . . ]

Dan Senor, spokesman for the occupation authority, claims that Berg was held exclusively by Iraqi police - not at all by the U.S. military or coalition - and also flatly contradicts and denies the claims of Berg's family that U.S. consular officials told them Nick Berg was in U.S. military custody (not being held by Iraqi police).

In the version recounted by "unidentified foreign reporter", Nick Berg 'jokingly' tells him:

"You wanna hear something funny? I got arrested in Mosul when the police asked me for I.D. I showed them my U.S. passport with the Jewish name and the Israeli stamp and I guess they figured I was a spy."

ha, ha, ha . . .

CUBA: US Policy Changes signal "Regime Change" ...
The defense of Cuba against US-Policy toward CUBA is quickly becoming a crucial issue !!! Bush's recently approved tough measures against Cuba mark a new phase of agressive efforts to overthrow the Cuba´s legitimate Government.

Steps that will lead to an invasion -- as Bush and his accomplices have done with Afghanistan, Iraq and Haiti !!!

The "Commission for Assistance to a Free Cuba" has issued a 50 page report -- the Bush administration has chosen to administer the policies outlined in this report. A report that details abuses by Cuba -- this report is Orwellian in that it could actually be the condemation of the current Bush administration -- not Cuba !!!

Quoting directly from this report, "The United States rejects the continuation of a communist dictatorship in Cuba ..."

... see the following ACTION ALERT !!!

a fresh trail: notice how it is 'smudged'- regular h2o contrails don't do that When I first read about chemtrails a year or two ago, I was extremely skeptical.

The trails are so obvious there is no doubt- What the FUCK are they spraying in the skies?

Let's Protest! YAY!!!
Protest. To rail against, to not be "for", to stand up to injustice, to take back our rights, etc etc. What exactly does protest look like now? I havent been to a PPRC rally for quite some time, but I would imagine they are about thirty people marching on the sidewalk still, with the police quite present.

I have been to some recent protests that were to be more "radical." But how radical can a protest be? It seems that the accepted view of a protest is to walk in circles around the city while the cops shove you and laugh. It just doesnt seem to add up that the way we protest and how we protest will EVER actually change things.

The War is Lost
Hi! Seems like this is a point of view that deserves wide circulation. It seems obvious that the poor fools in the pictures at the Iraqi prison were just following orders of the CIA operatives, who were using these methods to make the prisoners confess where were the non-existent WMD. My question is how long will it take the American people to realize the war is lost? My prediction is that the current administration will arrange to have another "terrorist attack" shortly before the election. The Reichstag is about to burn once again! How can all this be happening when we are so on the verge of love? Best regards! DA!
