Re: “Durham Activists Want the City to Become the First in the U.S. to Condemn Exchanges Between Local Cops and Israeli Security Forces

Israeli Occupation Forces have helped intensify, with equipment and training, the abuses carried out by many oppressive regimes across Latin America. This stunningly includes supporting genocide in Guatemala against the Mayan people in the 80s. We have enough problems with police killing unarmed Black and Brown people in this country without inviting trainers from a military that, according to historian Greg Grandin and journalist Jeremy Bigwood, has supported the most savage elements of official and paramilitary repression in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, and Venezuela.

The organizers of Demilitarize! From Durham2Palestine deserve big thanks, and the town council owes it to ALL the people of Durham to approve the proposal.

Re: “Congressman David Price votes no on fast-track trade deals

The fight resisting this abusive power grab by the corporate world will need strong and continuous public engagement, and articles like this one with its clear explanation of a complex issue, and a strong stand for the public interest side, are essential.

The throw-the-workers-away economy has many costs.
As we look aghast at the killings in the historic Charleston church,
I can’t help thinking about the murder of the three Moslem students
by a man whose dignity and ability to hold a marriage together
suffered from the job exporting economy that's being allowed
by a succession of "Free Trade" agreements. I say this with more confidence,
having read the New Yorker article just published.

How many white male walking time bombs are being created
— and armed — and convinced that their privilege and
economic survival is overthrown by some scapegoated class?

We need a strong wave of solidarity across the divide-and-rule fractures
being plied in our society, to oppose actively the politics of fear that
has been so fully researched and implemented against our true interests.

Re: “Palin, creationism and other red meat

Well, I think the subtitle "On the first day, God created pit bulls. On the second day, He created lipstick." was brilliant. Did it get lost when the update about the candidate for legislature was added?
