    The United States embassy in Bern has issued a warning to its citizens in Switzerland to stay away from demonstrations ahead of the World Economic Forum meeting in Davos. A demonstration alert published on its website said protests were expected in Bern, Geneva, Zürich, Davos and possibly other places in the run-up to the WEF, which begins on January 23rd. The alert, published on January 12th, came a day before a planned demonstration in Bern against the WEF and the visit of US President Donald Trump. Several hundred anti-capitalists took part in a march through the center of Bern on...

    ANKARA, Turkey - The Turkish gunman who shot and wounded Pope John Paul II is applying for Polish citizenship because he wants to live in the country of the late pontiff, whom he called his "spiritual brother." But the Polish Foreign Ministry said the chances of Mehmet Ali Agca getting citizenship are "minimal" since he hasn't provided any "good service" to John Paul's mostly Catholic homeland. Agca also wants to be transferred to a prison in Poland to serve the remainder of his sentence on a different conviction, lawyer Haci Ali Ozhan told The Associated Press. "He has chosen Poland...

    “Let’s put the RED back in redneck,” is the slogan of Redneck Revolt, a rapidly expanding nationwide network of gun-toting leftists who confront White Nationalists at public demonstrations. “The Left is getting armed again and I am honored to be a part of that,” said Mitchell Lewis of the Silver Valley chapter of Redneck Revolt in Davidson County, North Carolina who was in Charlottesville, Virginia carrying an AR-15 rifle against White Nationalist protestors. At least five chapters of Redneck Revolt, heavily armed with AR-15 semi-automatic rifles, shotguns and other weapons, were at the “Unite the Right” demonstration last weekend in...

    ACTIVISTS clashed violently with riot cops in Germany setting cars ablaze, looting shops, throwing petrol bombs and trying to gatecrash the convention centre hosting the G20 talks. Hundreds of extra police were drafted in to the streets of Hamburg in a bid to keep the increasingly violent protests by anti-globalisation rioters under control. But as these shocking images show the port’s streets were once again turned into a burning battleground. Around 200 police officers were injured, dozens of activists had to be taken to the hospital and more than 70 protesters were detained.

    A rally Wednesday afternoon resulted in a disrupted workplace and gridlocked traffic as student protesters marched to demand more diversity at the Indiana University-Bloomington campus. The rally and march was organized by the student group Students Against State Violence (SASV) in support of a Resolution on Diversity that was passed last April by the Faculty Council, because according to the SASV, the university “has been delaying and opposing its implementation.”

    What are the New Black Panthers up to, and what is their next move? The New Black Panthers are in the news these days, most recently for holding a protest this week in front of the infamous Waller County Jail in Hempstead, Texas, where Sandra Bland died in custody on July 13 following a traffic stop and arrest days earlier. Bland, 28, had recently moved from the Chicago area to work at her alma mater, Prairie View A&M University. Although her arrest was ruled a hanging suicide by local authorities–not the first in that jail–many questions remain unanswered, and many...

    The Washington Post ^ | August 14, 2014 | Philip Kennicott
    A photograph is never sufficiently proportional to truth. The truth — the full story, the context of things — is too large and complicated to be encompassed by any single image. So from Ferguson, Mo., where daily protests have erupted after Saturday’s police shooting of an unarmed African American teenager, we get only photographic data points. A man lights a rag in a bottle and prepares to throw a Molotov cocktail; militarized police sit atop armored vehicles, guns drawn and aimed at protestors who have their hands raised. Both are volatile images, and both confirm aspects of the truth: There...
  • End “Hegemonic Capitalism” to Solve Human-Caused Climate Change?

    Recently, 130 environmentalist groups gathered in an UN-backed event in Venezuela to gather more civilian support to combat climate change, reports the Daily Caller. A number of them signed the Margarita Declaration which calls for an end to the “hegemonic capitalist system” as the only solution to human-caused climate change. The environmentalists argued that measures such as carbon capture and trade and conservation efforts are not sufficient to prevent the environmental disasters they are predicting; instead, they demanded a radical system change. Although they did not spell out what their ideal social system would be, we can assume they want...

    BBC ^ | July 18, 2013
    Biotechnology giant Monsanto is scrapping plans to win approval to grow new types of genetically modified crops in the European Union. It says the move is due to the lack of prospects for cultivation in the EU... It comes just days after the EU began talks with the US on a wide-ranging trade deal, with agriculture likely to be one of the toughest issues. The company said it would now concentrate on growing its conventional seeds business in Europe. It will also look to get EU approval to import its genetically modified crop varieties from the US and South America...

    GM foods are banned from restaurants in the Houses of Parliament despite government claims it is ‘probably safer’ than other meals. Government ministers are demanding that ordinary families should abandon their reluctance to eat genetically modified food, however they are banned from MPs’ plates. This week the food and farming secretary, Owen Paterson, launched an extraordinary propaganda campaign to encourage the nation to accept GM crops and farming. He bolstered his campaign with claims that some seven million children in the Far East could have been saved from blindness or death in the last 15 years if only people had...

    The FBI has performed multiple raids of homes belonging to suspected anarchists in Portland, Oregon and in Olympia and Seattle, Washington. Five grand jury subpoenas have been issued in connection with the searches. Photos from a raid carried out in Portland show law enforcement seizing computers and boxes from a home. The raids appear to be part of an investigation into activities by the Occupy movement's "black bloc."

    History often repeats itself, and if you have lived two lives, as I have done, you may have a chance of seeing that reenactment with your own eyes. “Stealing from capitalists is our duty,” I repeatedly heard Nikita Khrushchev shout. “Don’t raise your eyebrows, Comrades. I intentionally used the word steal. We have a historical duty to steal from capitalists.” “Stealing from capitalists is our historical duty,” I also often heard my former boss, Nicolae Ceausescu, shout as he banged the table with true Khrushchev-like fervor. Both leaders rose to lead their countries without ever having earned a single penny...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The loss of their camp at Zuccotti Park doesn’t seem to be slowing down the Occupy Wall Street movement as protesters are calling for “a national day of direct action” on Thursday. It all starts with a rally in Liberty Square starting at 7 a.m. to “put an end to Wall Street’s reign of terror.” They plan on gathering at 16 subways stations around New York City to take their message to the trains. Finally, they say tens of thousands of protesters will end the day in Foley Square followed by a march to the Brooklyn...

    The National Lawyers Guild says it has obtained a court that allows Occupy Wall St. protesters to return with tents to a New York City park. The guild says the injunction prevents the city from enforcing park rules on Occupy Wall Street protesters. Mayor Michael Bloomberg says the city knew about the court order but has not seen it. He says the city plans to go court immediately.

    Hours After Manhattan Residents March On City Hall, Bloomberg Responds [snip] "...The OWS movement in New York City had become a serious detriment to residents and business owners living and working in the area near Zuccotti. Bloomberg was constantly under siege from residents to do something about the noise and reports of unsanitary conditions, in addition to the negative impact the demonstrations were having on local businesses. Residents got so enraged they decided to do something about it on Monday by marching on City Hall. WCBS 880′s Marla Diamond On The Story (see link) “No, I’m not going to take...

    I was an activist and organizer in the antiwar and civil rights movements of the 1960s and '70s - movements that are reborn today in the Occupy protests. I hope today's activists can learn from our experience. I was in Students for a Democratic Society and was affiliated with the Weather Underground. As a member of Weather's aboveground support network, I worked to forge bonds between clandestine and public activists. I ran bail bond money when people got arrested and the donors wanted anonymity. I helped a brave man find a place to hide from the police. I studied martial...

    PORTLAND, Ore. – Portland police believe that some protesters inside the Occupy Portland encampments are building shields and makeshift weapons -- including nails hammered into wood -- in preparation for when authorities attempt to clear the parks this weekend, police said Friday. Occupy Portland organizers have repeatedly said the movement is nonviolent and have appealed to demonstrators to resist peacefully when the camps close at midnight on Saturday. They planned public marches and a potluck dinner before the deadline and hoped the public would take part. But police said as many as 150 anarchists may come to Portland to take...
  • Occupy Wall Street – Of Course Obama is OK With it – It’s Just More Alinsky

    Rules for Radicals, p. 113, “The first step in community organization is community disorganization.” It’s no wonder that President Obama and other politicos on the Left have embraced the Occupy Wall Street movement. They do it, not in spite of the excesses, but because of the excesses. In true Alinsky fashion Obama finds affinity with a group of anti-capitalists who defecate on police vehicles. Obama is a product of his Alinsky training, and of the 1960′s counter-revolution. It is second nature for Obama to sanction the types of political dissent with which he is familiar. When he saw a peaceful...
