When Oakland Is Under Attack, What Do We Do?

Susie Cagle, Truthout: ''Occupy Oakland has captured the nation and even the world s attention at times. But those times have not been for Occupy Oakland's thoughtful direct actions or peaceful marches, but instead for the brutality of its suppression by police. Occupy Oakland is far more than these street battles and mass arrests, but they are an important part of what shapes this movement.''

Occupy Joins the Fight Against Private Prisons

Rania Khalek, Truthout: ''The National Prison Divestment Campaign was organized less than a year ago by Enlace, a coalition of US and Mexican low-wage worker centers and unions, to pressure corporations to divest from private prisons, whose chief investors include some of country s largest financial institutions such as Wells Fargo and Bank of America, both of which have provoked the ire of the Occupy movement for their role in tanking the economy, among other things.''

Raising taxes on poor to fund cuts for rich?

The Raw Story


It looked good on paper. A bill sponsored by Kansas Republican Governor Sam Brownback would spur economic growth by cutting income taxes on residents and doing away with them entirely for most small business while reducing or eliminating a variety of tax credits. But it turns out that in the version of the bill approved by a House committee this week, half a million of the state s poorest residents who earn less than $25,000 will wind up paying an average of $72 more per year, while the 21,000 Kansans who make over $250.000 will get an average tax cut of $1500...

Milliarden für griechische Armee

Während die griechische Bevölkerung den Gürtel immer enger schnallen muss, wird die Armee vergleichsweise mit Glacéhandschuhen angefasst. Davon profitieren die Sparvögte Deutschland und Frankreich. Artikel von Bernhard Fischer in der Basler Zeitung vom 20.02.2012

Die Milliardenlüge

''In steter Regelmäßigkeit malen die Medien das Schreckensbild, dass der Steuerzahler für Verluste der EZB haften müsste. Gerade im Zusammenhang mit einer immer wahrscheinlicher werdenden Umschuldung Griechenlands wird beim Bürger damit Angst geschürt und darauf hingewirkt, Angela Merkels Sparpolitik als alternativlos darzustellen. Doch eine Lüge wird nicht wahrer, wenn man sie ständig wiederholt. Die EZB ist eine Zentralbank und keine ''Europäische Sparkasse''. Verluste der EZB müssen nicht zwingend durch den Steuerzahler beglichen werden, wer Gegenteiliges behauptet, kolportiert somit eine Milliardenlüge?'' Artikel von Jens Berger vom 16. Februar 2012 bei den Nachdenkseiten
