long island activist arrested two nights ago [04 Jun 2008|04:23pm]

your_troops

On Monday June 2nd, Jon Grindell, an activist from NY, was surrounded by police officers and federal agents and arrested. When supporters arrived at his arraignment yesterday, they learned that he had been charged with aggravated harassment in the second degree (misdemeanor) as well as trespassing (a violation). In the afternoon, he was arraigned and released without bail.



The charges appear to be related to the Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS) campaign. HLS is a notorious animal testing facility in New Jersey where more than 500 animals are tortured to death every single day for useless products like coffee sweetener and drugs to treat shopaholics. The Animal Defense League of Long Island has been a part of the struggle to shut down HLS for many many years.



On Wednesday, July 16th, Jon will have his first court appearance and we are looking for people to come and support him. We will send out more information as it becomes available, as well as reminders for the court appearance.

In response to Mike's post, here's an actual and thoughtful critique of Obama and his foreign policy stance toward Latin America and the Caribbean.

The only thing worse than blatant aggression and arrogance is that same combination veiled by supposed liberal open-mindedness and empathy.

Instant-Mix Imperial Democracy: (Buy One, Get One Free) [20 May 2008|06:52pm]

30sec_life_lost
(Not sure if I ever posted this lecture before but it's worth posting again because Arundhati Roy is amazing.)

Instant-Mix Imperial Democracy: (Buy One, Get One Free)

In these times, when we have to race to keep abreast of the speed at which our freedoms are being snatched from us, and when few can afford the luxury of retreating from the streets for a while in order to return with an exquisite, fully formed political thesis replete with footnotes and references, what profound gift can I offer you tonight?

As we lurch from crisis to crisis, beamed directly into our brains by satellite TV, we have to think on our feet. On the move. We enter histories through the rubble of war. Ruined cities, parched fields, shrinking forests, and dying rivers are our archives. Craters left by daisy cutters, our libraries...

(The rest is at the site below.)

Hey,

I hope everyone catches the HBO documentary "Hacking Democracy." It came out just before the 2006 elections but they're replaying on the channel.
This whole country is privatized, including our elections.

This is the website for the org. responsible for the investigation.
