Police - Repression
Police force citizens from their homes, shoots their dogs
By : Marlon Manuel - Sunday September 11, 2005
6 comments
ST. BERNARD PARISH, La. - "All Our Visitors Bring Happiness," reads the wrought iron sign on the front column of Albert Cousin’s 102-year-old Victorian house. Not Wednesday. Sheriff’s deputies in body armor and holding rifles came to try to force Cousin and other residents of St. Bernard Parish to get out of town. For the past few days, residents have found comfort in food and water brought by units of the Georgia National Guard, who arrived Labor Day weekend. The roughly 160 (...)

Police Trapped Thousands in New Orleans
By : Rogers Cadenhead - Sunday September 11, 2005
3 comments
As the situation grew steadily worse in New Orleans last week, you might have wondered why people didn’t just leave on foot. The Louisiana Superdome is less than two miles from a bridge that leads over the Mississippi River out of the city. The answer: Any crowd that tried to do so was met by suburban police, some of whom fired guns to disperse the group and seized their water. Around 500 people stuck in downtown New Orleans after the storm banded together for self-preservation, (...)

NEW ORLEANS — Heavily armed paramilitary mercenaries from the Blackwater private security firm, infamous for their work in Iraq, are openly patrolling the streets of New Orleans. Some of the mercenaries say they have been "deputized" by the Louisiana governor; indeed some are wearing gold Louisiana state law enforcement badges on their chests and Blackwater photo identification cards on their arms. They say they are on contract with the Department of Homeland Security and have been (...)

SAN FRANCISCO : 61 arrests at protest over hotel labor talks
By : Glen Martin - Friday September 9, 2005
Union called action; contract end date key by Glen Martin Most Bay Area residents may have celebrated Labor Day with prodigious quantities of beer and barbecue, but some marked it the old-fashioned way — by getting arrested. Sixty-one union members and sympathizers staged a sit-down at the Grand Hyatt Hotel at Union Square in San Francisco to call attention to a yearlong dispute with 14 hotels over new labor contracts. They were arrested, charged with misdemeanors for interfering (...)

The entire city of New Orleans is under evacuation orders. I just spoke to my friend Daniel in the Bywater (9th ward). He reports that unmarked police vehicles (cadillacs) are driving through the neighborhood with SWAT team police armed with ’big black machine guns’ telling people through bullhorns they are under orders to evacuate and must leave the city now. People in that neighborhood are being told to go to the big pool on the corner of Lesseps and St. Claude (this is one (...)

Big oil’s bigtime looting

By Derrick Z. Jackson PRESIDENT BUSH yesterday told ABC-TV, ’’there ought to be zero tolerance of people breaking the law during an emergency such as this, whether it be looting or price-gouging at the gasoline pump or taking advantage of charitable giving or insurance fraud." Zero tolerance is meaningless when the White House lets the biggest looters of Hurricane Katrina walk off with billions of dollars.

By Les Kennedy, Samantha Selinger-Morris and Matt Wade Four protesters railing against a gathering of international business leaders were arrested last night after they breached the security barrier outside the entrance to the Opera House forecourt.

The Guardian and the de Menezes killing
By : Chris Marsden and Julie Hyland - Monday August 22, 2005
By Chris Marsden and Julie Hyland New leaks from official sources in Britain have added to the evidence already brought to light, proving that the official story of how Brazilian Jean Charles de Menezes was gunned down was a pack of lies. In response, the liberal daily newspaper the Guardian has rushed to the defence of Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Ian Blair, justifying the use of death squads and excusing a cover-up aimed at concealing how the police murdered an innocent man.

An Open Letter to Prime Minister Tony Blair
By : Flávio Américo dos Reis - Saturday August 20, 2005
Dear Prime Minister: Not since the Christie Affair * (1862-1865) have relations between our two countries been this bad; I mean Brazil and England. Quite apart from the lies of the war which, in our cups, I’m sure we all agree, were fantastic fibs (great with the rabble, though, I must admit: they sold like hot cakes here in the US where I live), I think you would better do right by the De Menezes dossier and not try to "fix the facts around the policy" on this matter.

De Menezes: Another Corpse on the Road to Globalist Fascism
By : Kurt Nimmo - Friday August 19, 2005
by Kurt Nimmo The blogger Aangirfan draws a parallel between the execution of the seemingly hapless Jean Charles de Menezes on 22 July in the London subway and Operation Gladio. As Aangirfan points out, de Menezes “behaved normally” when he entered Stockwell Tube station, did not run from police (or rather a “Special Reconnaissance Regiment, modeled on an undercover unit that operated in Northern Ireland,” according to the Guardian), did not jump a tollgate and used (...)

Chile Completes Its Transition To Democracy

by Brian McAfee In two key decisions Chile has restored her democracy lost on September 11, 1973 when Gen. Augusto Pinochet overthrew democratically elected president Salvador Allende in a bloody Coupe supported by the United States. On July 6, a Chilean court ruled 11 to 10 to remove Picnochet’s immunity he had granted himself when he became dictator in 1973. This opens the door to the families of those murdered and tortured by his regime to pursue legal action against him. (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE

by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
