Branded for Animal Rights

It has been two months since I was bound with chains, dragged across jagged rocks in the freezing rain, shorn of my mid-back-length hair, and branded with a cattle iron heated to over 500°F. I am now bald, scarred and permanently marked.

But I’m alive. Others are not so lucky.

Unlike me, billions worldwide do not get to return to their homes, nurse their wounds, and move on. Unlike me, they have no choice in the matter. Unlike me, they lose their lives.

November 13th – Slow Down for Earth: Coordinated Action Alert from DGR

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

by Southeast DGR

I am writing to you to publicize an action that has the potential to change the destructive course of our civilization. Imagine if the ALF, ELF, Earthfirst!, Occupy, Critical Mass, Anonymous, and hundreds of other underground and mainstream groups combined around one day per month, to slow or stop traffic on the interstate highways, to lower productivity in workplaces, to reduce consumption, to advocate for sanity.

Transportation affects every issue that we all have in common: the highways are used to transport political prisoners, laboratory animals, farm animals, and, of course, they represent one of the greatest sources of greenhouse gases. Just a few hundred people in major cities could achieve maximum impact by simply observing the “13 green” slowdown.

Please post to social media, websites, blogs, and print. Make some copies of the flier and put them around town in places frequented by like-minded people.

Please do not ignore this appeal: we may not get another chance!

Congress to authorize military arrest and indefinite detention of US citizens

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

by Stephen Lendman (The Intel Hub)

Congress is now considering legislative language to mandate indefinite military detentions of US citizens suspected of present or past associations with alleged terrorist groups, with or without evidence to prove it. More on that below.

The 2006 Military Commissions Act authorized torture and sweeping unconstitutional powers to detain, interrogate, and prosecute alleged suspects and collaborators (including US citizens), hold them (without evidence) indefinitely in military prisons, and deny them habeas and other constitutional protections.

Section 1031 of the FY 2010 Defense Authorization Act contained the 2009 Military Commissions Act (MCA). The phrase “unprivileged enemy belligerent” replaced “unlawful enemy combatant.”

Language changed but not intent or lawlessness. Obama embraces the same Bush agenda, including keeping Guantanamo open after promising to close it, allowing torture there and abroad, and treating US citizens as lawlessly as foreign nationals.

MCA grants sweeping police state powers, including that “no court, justice, or judge shall have jurisdiction to hear or consider any claim or cause for action whatsoever….relating to the prosecution, trial, or judgment of a military commission (including) challenges to the lawfulness of (its) procedures….”

MCA scraped habeas protection (dating back to the 1215 Magna Carta) for domestic and foreign state enemies, citizens and non-citizens alike.

It says “Any person is punishable… who….aids, abets, counsels, commands, or procures,” and in so doing helps a foreign enemy, provide “material support” to alleged terrorist groups, engages in spying, or commits other offenses previously handled in civil courts. No evidence is needed. Those charged are guilty by accusation.

Other key provisions include:

  • legalizing torture against anyone, letting the president decide what procedures can be used on his own authority;
  • denying detainees international law protection;
  • letting the executive interpret or ignore international and US law;
  • letting the president convene “military commissions” at his discretion to try anyone he designates an “unprivileged enemy belligerent,” detaining them indefinitely in secret;
  • denying speedy trials or none at all;
  • letting torture coerced confessions be used as evidence in trial proceedings, despite US and international law prohibiting cruel and inhuman treatment at all times, under all conditions, with no allowed exceptions;
  • letting hearsay and secret evidence be used; and
  • denying due process and judicial fairness overall.

On May 21, 2009, Obama addressed national security and civil liberties issues, including Guantanamo detainees, military commissions, and torture.
