Peccadillos proliferate

01-02-2004 19:26

The Whitehouse leak of the name of CIA Spook Valerie Plame has lead to inquiries by the US Congress. To gain a sense of the gravity of the situation the Resolution of Inquiry is a privileged measure that can only be invoked by members of the of the Senate and Congressional Intelligence Committees. This measure is rarely invoked. What follows is a reprint of an article by former White House Counsel during the Nixon Administration John Dean outlining the matter. And you thought the Hutton Commission Report ended this type of chit-chat ! Oh the tangled web we weave.........

International Food Not Bombs Gathering

30-01-2004 08:24

food, not bombs!
Food Not Bombs (FNB) volunteers from around the globe will converge in New
York City August 25-27th. Planned to precede protests against the
Republican National Convention, the Food Not Bombs International Gathering
will host activists from one of the world’s largest revolutionary
movements for three days of workshops, spokescouncils, skill shares,
foodsharing and discussion on the future direction of the movement.

Since its inception in 1980, FNB has grown from one chapter to more than
300 groups all over the world who are organizing against war and
militarization by cooking and serving free meals in their communities with
the idea that the billions of dollars wasted on military spending should
instead be used to nourish the hungry. An autonomous movement, FNB
chapters engage in various projects in their communities from fighting
against poverty, gentrification and governmental immigration policies to
organizing against the war on Iraq. One hope to come from this gathering
is that FNB chapters will be better informed of what other groups are
accomplishing in other parts of the world.
