    NEW ORLEANS -- The population of undocumented workers in Louisiana is estimated to be around 65,000 according to the Pew Research Center's Hispanic Trends Project. Angela Castro is one of those 65,000. Castro came to New Orleans from Honduras shortly after Hurricane Katrina when opportunities for work were ripe and plentiful. She's since had two children. Castro says she and many undocumented immigrants often avoid attention. On Thursday, they sought it. "We're all human beings. We have the right to remain in this country. In my country it's very poor. I came here to work, and this is where my...

    A group called Gun Control = More Crime is planning anti-gun control rallies at state capitol buildings across the nation. The event, being billed "Guns Across America," is scheduled for tomorrow, January 19.

"This is our chance to reach out to our elected officials, and tell them NO NEW GUN LAWS! 'Guns Across America' is being tailored to happen in every states capital city**, at their capital building.

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 18/9/11 | Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu
    Worldwide pro and anti-Israel rallies outside the Arab world the past few days revealed lopsided support for Israel, with 800 pro-Israel Christians rallying in London and 150 pro-Arabs, including 20 anti-Zionist Jews, in New York. Mainstream headlines spreading fear of huge protests, and even a Third Intifada" in Israel, have failed to ignite the Arab street, where most demonstrations have been limited to numbers ranging from a few dozen to 200. Outside of Israel, enthusiasm for the Palestinian Authority also has been limited to college campuses and anti-Israel advertising on buses and subway trains. A pro-Arab rally in New York...

    SYDNEY A plan by the Australian government to introduce the biggest emissions trading scheme outside of the European Union has unleashed a wave of partisan fighting that is threatening to sink the agenda of a second consecutive Labor government. A call in February by the opposition leader, Tony Abbott, for a peoples revolt against the plan has incited one of the most raucous protest movements the country has seen in decades. Thousands have rallied and counterrallied across the country, with the battle hardening along familiar lines: small versus big government; free markets versus environmental protection; climate change believers versus...

    An Orthodox California rabbi running for state senate under the Tea Party banner marched yesterday with a far right-wing anti-Islam group in Britain outside the Israeli Embassy. Rabbi Nachum Shifren, an ex-lifeguard known as the surfing rabbi, is considered a long shot to represent west Los Angeles in the California senate. He has spoken at Tea Party events and says he is a member of the group. The English Defence League has said it wants to foster ties with the American Tea Party, a right-wing group that has also taken anti-Muslim and anti-immigration stances, and the rally, at which Shifren...

    He's tried homey backyard settings, large campus ral lies and teamed up with a crass hip-hop show. Wherever he goes, he floors the rhetorical pedal, as when he likened his slow-motion polices to the time it took to "free the slaves." Barack Obama has gone from a failing president to flailing at ghosts. Even allowing for desperate times, his desperate measures are a national embarrassment. Emancipation? Give us a break. With each passing day, his denunciations of dissent and inflated claims of economic progress turn off the independent voters who will decide the midterm elections. He is ignoring the sensible...

The former kindergarten teaching assistant began falling down and struggling to walk in 1999, and within four years, she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Wednesday, Ms. Lessard rolled up in a wheelchair in a suburban park in Montreal to press for what she sees as her only hope at a better life.

    CHICAGO Angered by a controversial Arizona immigration law, tens of thousands of protesters including 50,000 alone in Los Angeles rallied in cities nationwide demanding President Barack Obama tackle immigration reform immediately. "I want to thank the governor of Arizona because she's awakened a sleeping giant," said labor organizer John Delgado who attended a rally in New York where authorities estimated 6,500 gathered. From Los Angeles to Washington D.C., activists, families, students and even politicians marched, practiced civil disobedience and "came out" about their citizenship status in the name of rights for immigrants, including the estimated 12 million...

According to Bob Kunst, president of Shalom International / Defend Jerusalem Coalition, thousands of anti-American and pro-Hamas marchers are poised to converge in some 50 locations around the country. One of the first will be a mass emergency rally to support the State of Israel, scheduled for Thursday, March 18 at 12:00 noon, to be held in New York City several yards away from the site of the 9/11 al-Qaeda terror attack, Ground Zero....

    As it stands now, you cannot pack heat while listening to the preacher in a house of God. But bills in both the state House and Senate aim to change that. Similar bills filed last year in both chambers would, if enacted, change the locations where weapons could be taken and where they are prohibited. State Rep. Timothy Bearden, R-Villa Rica, is sponsoring House Bill 615, which would make it a crime to take a firearm, knife or explosive into a building that has a courtroom, jail or prison. It would also remove existing restrictions on bringing a gun to...

    They were there not because they think everything's fine with health care, but because they think Obama's proposed cure is far worse than the disease. They want to preserve the best healthcare system on the planet from being destroyed just because there are problems with paying for it. They want to keep the system free from a government takeover so that different solutions can be found, many different choices and innovations may be offered, and different political ideas can arise, ones that rely on government allowing more freedom and removing obstacles rather than the other way around. That's how Americans...

And at a rally here, a woman worried that a message of hope and change, in addition to his race, made him more vulnerable to violence.

But for a growing number of Barack Obama sceptics, there is something disturbing about the adulation with which the senator and Democratic presidential frontrunner is greeted as he campaigns for the White House - unnervingly akin to the hysteria of a cult, or the fervour of a religious revival. Thousands wait in line to see him wherever he stops. Members of the audience have taken to rushing the stage during campaign rallies, forcing the...

The simultaneous protests organized by Get Out Of Nuclear, a collective made up of hundreds of associations, was intended to raise the prominence of the issue in the run-up to April-May presidential elections. Smaller-party candidates resolutely opposed to the construction of new facilities called European pressurized-water reactors joined the protesters.

    DES MOINES, Iowa - Former President Bill Clinton said Saturday that voters "know something is wrong" in Washington and urged Democrats to create change in the November elections.

The former president was the keynote speaker at the Jefferson-Jackson Day dinner, the Iowa Democratic Party's biggest annual fundraising event. He drew more than 3,500 activists.

    Immigrant supporters marched in several U.S. cities Monday to call for the right of illegal workers to live and work freely in the United States, drawing significantly fewer participants than massive demonstrations earlier this year. Participants waved American and Mexican flags at peaceful Labor Day rallies in California, Arizona and Texas, with crowds of a few hundred to several thousand chanting "Si se puede!" ("It can be done!") and "We are America." Marchers voiced the same message in demonstrations that attracted hundreds of thousands this spring. "Treat us as the labor force that moves the wealth in this country," Haydee...
