Troy Davis: Unvergessen!

'Wir sind erschüttert, zornig und trauern mit den Hinterbliebenen. Heute um 5:00 Uhr MESZ wurde in Georgia/USA der Afroamerikaner Troy Davis exekutiert. Er wäre am 9. Oktober 42 Jahre alt geworden. Die von seinem Anwalt eingereichten 'Berge von Unschuldsbeweisen' und die weltweiten Proteste gegen diesen barbarischen Akt (selbst Todesstrafenbefürworter vor Ort hatten für eine Wiederaufnahme des Verfahrens demonstriert!) hatten bewirkt, dass sich in letzter Minute doch noch der Oberste Gerichtshof der USA mit seinem Fall befassen musste. Dieses höchste Justizgremium der USA hat nun erneut Blut an den Händen?' Presseerklärung zur Hinrichtung des Afroamerikaners Troy Davis in den USA von Heinz W.

Trauer um Troy Davis

Die stellvertretende Vorsitzende der LINKEN, Katja Kipping, erklärt zur Hinrichtung von Troy Davis im US-Bundesstaat Georgia:

Troy Davis ist tot. Er wurde hingerichtet, obwohl erhebliche Zweifel daran bestanden, dass er das ihm zur Last gelegte Verbrechen überhaupt begangen hat. Seine Hinrichtung war Unrecht, jede Hinrichtung ist Unrecht. Wir trauern um Troy Davis. Unsere Gedanken sind bei seiner Familie und seinen Freunden. Die Bundesregierung darf zu diesem Akt der Barbarei vor den Augen der Weltöffentlichkeit nicht schweigen. Der Außenminister sollte den Tod von Troy Davis wie sein französischer Kollege zum Anlass für einen offiziellen Protest nehmen. Die Geltung der Menschenrechte muss auch dann eingefordert werden, wenn sie von einer Weltmacht verletzt werden. Die Vereinten Nationen haben die Todesstrafe geächtet. Wir erklären uns solidarisch mit allen, die weltweit gegen die Todesstrafe kämpfen.

Obama has deported more than a million unauthorized immigrants

Mother Jones
by Adam Serwer


On September 9, I wrote that the Obama administration, based on statistics from Immigration and Customs Enforcement, was nearing its millionth deportation. It seems I was only about three days off. According to Reuters, the administration hit that milestone on September 12. How does that compare with Obama s predecessor, George W. Bush? The answer, if you have been hearing Republicans accuse Obama of 'backdoor amnesty' and holding the border hostage, may surprise you...

Targeting Immigrants

Nancy Murray and Kade Crockford, Truthout and ACLU Massachusetts: 'Ashcroft s vow to 'use all weapons within the law' against noncitizens to 'enhance security for America' initially targeted Muslims. They have been singled out for discriminatory enforcement of immigration regulations, from the post-9/11 'special interest' arrests to the present. But the search for the 'terrorists among us' has had a broad reach.'

The Terrible Post-9/11 Truth: Our Government s Been Hijacked

Michael Winship, Truthout: 'The World Trade Center collapse created the largest number of workplace fatalities in the history of the United States. Government bumbling and dissembling about air quality downtown and conditions at the site, the rush back to business as usual, may have irreparably killed and injured countless others.'

Why Are American Citizens Getting Locked Up and Even Deported by Immigration Authorities?

Rania Khalek, AlterNet: 'Although it s difficult to obtain an exact number of Americans illegally detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) ? over 4,000 US citizens were detained or deported in 2010 alone?. The [New York] Times points out that 'Any case where an American is held, even briefly, for immigration investigation is a potential wrongful arrest because immigration agents lack legal authority to detain citizens.'

Reluctant Migration: The Vicious Cycle of Debt, Deportation and Flawed Policy That Drives Central Americans Over the Border Again and Again

Streamlined Deportation: ''No One Here in This Room Can Help You''

Dream 9 Youths Shed Light on US 'Deportation Machine'

US is too big

Liberty For All
by Thomas Naylor


Through an unwieldy combination of big government, big military, big business, big labor and big cities, we have created an unworkable mega-nation which defies central management and control. Not only is the United States too big, but it has also become too authoritarian and too undemocratic, and its states assume too little responsibility for the solution of their own social, economic, and political problems...

Blaming America

Future of Freedom Foundation
by Jacob G. Hornberger


One of the most fascinating aspects of the post-9/11 debate has been the 'Blame America' phenomenon. Whenever libertarians have pointed to the role that U.S. foreign policy played in producing the anger and rage that ultimately manifested itself with terrorist retaliation on 9/11, statists have responded, 'Oh, so you are blaming America for the attacks'...

What defense cuts?

Cato Institute
by Benjamin H. Friedman and Caitlin Talmadge


Much deficit deal analysis has focused on why it could lead to big defense cuts - anywhere from $350 billion to $1 trillion over the next decade. Hawkish members of Congress and Pentagon officials, including new Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, are warning about the dangers of a hollow military force. Contractors, meanwhile, are already lobbying heavily to protect their programs. Yet the Senate Appropriations Committee last week unveiled its spending caps for fiscal year 2013 - without a big defense cut...

Founding Fathers to 'Super Committee': Bring troops home

As the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction ... the 12-member panel should give serious consideration to what America s Founding Fathers would have done to control federal spending.

9/11: A Conspiracy Theory


The Plan is for the United States to rule the world

By David Armstrong

The overt theme is unilateralism, but it is ultimately a story of domination. It calls for the United States to maintain its overwhelming military superiority and prevent new rivals from rising up to challenge it on the world stage. It calls for dominion over friends and enemies alike.

Resisting the Corporate Theft of Seeds

Dr. Vandana Shiva, The Nation: 'We are in a food emergency. Speculation and diversion of food to biofuel has contributed to an uncontrolled price rise, adding more to the billion already denied their right to food. Industrial agriculture is pushing species to extinction through the use of toxic chemicals that kill our bees and butterflies, our earthworms and soil organisms that create soil fertility. Plant and animal varieties are disappearing as monocultures displace biodiversity. Industrial, globalized agriculture is responsible for 40 percent of greenhouse gases, which then destabilize agriculture by causing climate chaos, creating new threats to food security.'

Message to Banks: Pay US Back

George Goehl and LeeAnn Hall, Truthout: 'Today, the Association of Washington Business, the powerful chamber of Washington State businesses, is in the midst of its annual policy summit in the beautiful mountain resort of Suncadia. There are golf tournaments, wine tastings, a keynote by Gov. Christine Gregoire and seminars such as, 'Where Will the Money Come From?' led by Phyllis Campbell, the Northwest regional director of JP Morgan Chase Bank. But attendees will also have some unexpected visitors. Called the 'Showdown at Suncadia,' hundreds of homeowners, community leaders, union members, and more from across the state are interrupting this gathering in a series of creative, direct actions to demand that the big banks and corporations pay their fair share to help fix the economy.'

War On Terror Or War On Freedom?

by Pastor Chuck Baldwin

A recent major investigative report by the Los Angeles Times sheds light on what all this 'war on terror' is actually costing- and actually accomplishing. According to the report, 'A decade after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, federal and state governments are spending about $75 billion a year on domestic security, setting up sophisticated radio networks, upgrading emergency medical response equipment, installing surveillance cameras and bombproof walls, and outfitting airport screeners to detect an ever-evolving list of mobile explosives.........

Attica s 40th Anniversary: Still on the Wrong Road

Michael E. Deutsch, Truthout: 'Attica and its aftermath exposed the powder kegs ready to explode inside the US prisons and the urgent need to change the reigning penology and administrative practices throughout the federal, state and local prison systems. Attica uncovered the hidden reality that the prisons and jails were increasingly the socioeconomic destination for the poor and wildly disproportionate numbers of black people, as well as political militants.'
