The Flor de Caña Boycott Group Extends its Protest
28 May 2009
One month ago a youth group launched a boycott against Flor de Caña, the famous Nicaraguan rum. The boycott is in solidarity with members of the Nicaraguan Association of Those Affected by Chronic Renal Insufficiency (Anairc).

(NSEL) and Ingenio San Antonio (ISA) belong to the powerful Pellas Group. The protest letter campaign is also aimed at all the companies that import and distribute Flor de Caña rum around the world.

9/11, Who Benefited Versus Gulag Gitmo?
27 May 2009
Dick Cheney more or less admitted his group’s guilt in his desperate attempt to take on Barack Obama’s sane and necessary policy of closing Guantanamo. To argue that a military machine that spends up to a half trillion dollars a year doesn’t have the where-with-all to guard prisoners already in handcuffs is to argue an extremely weak case. To think that the Republican party would have the jaded audacity to use the NIMBY excuse as a wedge issue is beyond the pale—given the enormous harm their public relations of Guantanomo and Gulag has already affected the world’s perception of Americans and U.S. foreign policy.

How "liberal" has become a poisoned brand
27 May 2009
"Where have all the “liberals” gone?
There was a time not too long ago when a North American would proudly refer to him or herself as a small-l “liberal.”
President John F. Kennedy talked about himself as a liberal."

17 arrested in anti-mountaintop removal civil disobedience
24 May 2009
Seventeen courageous Mountain Justice volunteers were arrested Saturday, May 23 in a three-part civil disobedience action in our continuing movement to end mountaintop removal. Six are still in jail with bogus, unprecedented, $2,000 cash-only bail amounts, slowing their release. Many of them were arrested for the first time with clean records, and all they did was cross a line onto coal company property. We are raising $18,000 to get them out of jail as we move closer to defeating King Coal. Fundraising has bailed out three others since this morning. Thank you all!
