Should I feel insulted? They neglected to hound me as well. I guess I’m not reaching enough of an audience. Damn.

First name on their smear list is Dr. Francis Boyle, the human rights lawyer who has pushed for International Law to be upheld his entire career. I actually created a website for him back around the start fo the Iraq War (Crime).  I have also opposed the genocidal ethnic cleansing of Palestine by Israeli aggression. I post on it regularly. It is disgusting.

Web Site Creates Blacklist of Pro-Palestinian Activists

A new website is publicizing the identities of pro-Palestinian student activists to prevent them from getting jobs after they graduate from college. But the website is keeping its own backers’ identity a secret.

“It is your duty to ensure that today’s radicals are not tomorrow’s employees,” a female narrator intones in a slick video posted to the website’s YouTube account.

Called Canary Mission…

A foreign power is waging economic war on targeted US students, right here in America.

Fuck “Canary Mission.”

“SSSS” = Enhanced Security Screening

In further unconstitutional bullying tactics, the feds are labeling their political opponents as “extremists” and putting them on watch lists at airports and border crossings. Totalitarianism in the name of freedom, of course; how could it be otherwise?

Call to Creative Action

CALL TO ACTION: The USDAC calls on all artists and creative activists to use our gifts for peace and justice, sharing images, performances, experiences, writings, and other works of art that raise awareness, build connection, cultivate empathy, and inspire action.

The murder of Michael Brown (and Eric Garner, Renisha McBride, Jonathan Ferrell, Jordan Davis, Sean Bell, Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant, and so many others) and the suppression of basic rights in Ferguson, MO (and so many other places) compel us to ask these questions:

  • Who are we as a people? 
  • What do we stand for? 
  • How do we want to be remembered?

As a culture of punishment? Or a culture that values every human life, promoting true public safety grounded in justice and love?

As artists and creative activists, we understand that even as our present crises arise from economic and political conditions, these crises are rooted in culture.

  • Official violence is a cultural issue. 
  • The denial of human rights is a cultural issue. 
  • Racism is a cultural issue.

We join together in affirming to all public officials and policymakers that a culture of punishment cannot stand. We join together in applying our gifts to the public gatherings, organizing campaigns, and policy proposals that will support positive change. We stand together with generations of creative activists in communities across the nation who have been envisioning and working toward a world of equity and safety for all.

Corporate Media’s Dubious Syria Coverage

A more careful LexisNexis database search for “Syria,” “Assad,” “government” and the phrases “activists say” or “activists report” in the subject headings or text of news items for conventional print outlets indexed for June 1, 2012 to February 7, 2014 yields a data set consisting of close to 2,000 pieces—1,638 newspaper articles, 205 BBC broadcast transcripts, and 148 web-based articles.[6] A total 134 articles appeared in the New Zealand Herald, 52 in the Washington Post, 38 in the New York Times, 30 in the Financial Times, and 28 in the International New York Times.
