11/23 Alert! Carwford Anti-War Protesters Arrested Near Bush's Ranch!
Please call Crawford Police Department: (254) 486-2678
Demand Their Release peace Activists ASAP! and Stop harassing them!

CRAWFORD, Texas (AP) - A dozen war protesters were arrested Wednesday for setting up camp near President Bush's ranch in defiance of new local bans on roadside camping and parking.

About four hours after the group pitched six tents and huddled in sleeping bags and blankets, McLennan County sheriff's deputies arrested them for criminal trespassing.

Another dozen or so demonstrators left the public right of way after deputies warned them they would be arrested.

The protest was set to coincide with Bush's Thanksgiving ranch visit.

The arrests were made by more than two dozen deputies who calmly approached the demonstrators in their tents and asked if they wanted to walk out on their own or be carried. Two chose to be carried. They were to be taken to jail for booking.

Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan wasn't among the protesters Wednesday because of a family emergency in California, but she planned to be at the camp later in the week.

``We are proud to be here,'' Dede Miller, Sheehan's sister, said hours before her arrest as she huddled in a blanket at the campsite. ``This is just so important. What we did in August really moved us forward, and this is just a continuation of it.''

In August, hundreds of demonstrators camped off the road during a 26-day protest led by Sheehan, whose 24-year-old soldier son Casey was killed in Iraq last year. But a month later, county commissioners banned camping in any county ditch and parking within 7 miles of the ranch, citing safety and traffic congestion issues.

Earlier this week, three demonstrators filed a federal lawsuit against McLennan County over the two local bans.

During the last several weeks of their summer protest, the activists had camped on a private 1-acre lot that a sympathetic landowner let them use. That land is about a mile from Bush's ranch.

Eureka, CA Recruiting Center Shut Down11/19/2005 EUREKA ANTI-WAR PROTEST

[IMC Indy Bay Media Center] On November 18th, the Eureka Military Recruiting Center was shut down for the day by approximately 200 protesters. Present at the protest were students, peace groups, Buddhists meditating for peace and people young and old who are disgusted with Bush’s war for oil. Participation in this sparsely populated area was high, partly in protest of police brutality and the arrest of four cyclist on route to an earlier war protest. Like the earlier protest, a CHP helicopter brought in from Redding circled overhead and police used scare tactics with the presence of rubber bullet weapons and tear gas launchers. No arrests were made but at least 6 harassment citations were given to protesters for such things as riding a bicycle on the sidewalk and obstructing traffic. Read More

$80 Billion More for War?
No Way! Bring the Troops Home Now
(by United for Peace & Justice)

George W. Bush is asking Congress for $80 billion more for the failed Iraq war, on top of the more than $151 billion already appropriated. Congress is gearing up to pour more money to "stay the course" of the past two tragic years. The U.S. presence on the streets of Iraq is fueling animosity, motivating the armed resistance, and sealing the fate for failed democracy in Iraq. Every extra day and dime the U.S. spends on its reckless course in Iraq deepens the suffering in Iraq and at home. Tell your Member of Congress that not one more dime should go to waging war in Iraq. Instead, the U.S. must end the occupation, bring our troops home, and support Iraqi sovereignty.

• Contact your members of Congress at 202-224-3121 (9-5 EST) and demand no new war spending

Stop Killing Iraqi People!

They are the hated ones, the despised face of U.S.. occupation in Iraq. But the men and women who make up the U.S. forces are living in a hell of their own.

Not many of the U.S. soldiers in Iraq are quite troops either. Some are "regular army" mobilised from Germany, but many are reservists called to duty early this year.

Without uniforms, they would be the Joe or Jane you see on the streets of the United States. Before they were called to duty, many were students or government workers.

With the death toll rising, and public support for the occupation of Iraq waning, the military is making sure no pictures of soldiers' bodies are shown on television. Most soldiers say they just want to go home.....

Counter Recruitment, GI Resistance Watch



We urge you to join us in a "National Day of Action for GI Resisters" on Tuesday May 10, 2005. This is the day before the US military is planning to bring sailor Pablo Paredes and soldier Kevin Benderman before military court martial tribunals for their opposition to the Iraq War. They face forfeiture of pay and benefits, and military jail time.

On December 6, 2004, Navy Petty Officer Pablo Paredes refused to board his ship as it left the San Diego Naval Station in support of the Iraq War and occupation. At the time of his refusal, Pablo said he hoped his protest might inspire other GI's to refuse to take part in the war.

On January 5, 2005, Kevin Benderman refused to deploy for a second tour of duty in Iraq with the Army's Third Infantry Division. At the same time seventeen other soldiers from his unit went AWOL, two tried to kill themselves and one had a relative shoot him in the leg to avoid deploying.

Both men applied for discharge from the US military as conscientious objectors. The military has wrongly rejected both claims.

It's time for us to escalate public pressure and action in support of Pablo, Kevin and the thousands of other courageous men and women who have followed their conscience to uphold international law and to take a principled stand against the unjust, illegal war and occupation of Iraq. It's time we had their backs.
Objection and resistance by military servicepersons is a healthy and important assertion of Democracy in a country where the decisions to invade Iraq, to maintain an occupation, and engage in widespread human right violations and torture were made undemocratically in violation of international law and based on continuing lies and disinformation.

Please join us by organizing a public demonstration, vigil or rally of support on May 10. Every action, no matter how large or small is important.

* Send letters of support and donations to cover legal fees to Pablo and Kevin via their websites listed below.
* Come to San Diego, California (Pablo) or Fort Stewart, Georgia (Kevin) to show your support during their trials.
* Write letters to the editor, and help educate your organization, church, union, school, co-workers and community.

Resisting illegal occupation and war is not a crime! The right to conscientious objection is being systematically violated by the military. Those objectors who are publicly asserting their rights are being singled out for punishment. We demand that military personnel retain their right to follow their conscience, publicly dissent and that their basic democratic rights be respected. A better world is possible!

May 12, 2005 Sad News: Military Judge Convicts Sailor Turned Anti-War Activist Pablo Paredes

May. 12, 2005 - A sailor turned anti-war activist was convicted Wednesday in a special court-martial of refusing to board the USS Bonhomme Richard as it deployed to the Persian Gulf in December.

A military judge found Petty Officer 3rd Class Pablo Paredes guilty of missing his ship's movement, but dismissed a second count of unauthorized absence, ruling it duplicative.

The proceeding then moved into the sentencing phase. The 23-year-old New Yorker could receive a year in jail, a forfeiture of pay, reduction in rank and a bad-conduct discharge.

Paredes had waived his right to have his trial heard by a military jury.

Paredes, a weapons control technician, refused to board the ship on Dec. 6 as it left for a six-month deployment in the Pacific and Indian oceans. The Bonhomme Richard and two other ships were transporting about 3,000 Marines to Iraq.

At the time, Paredes told reporters he did not want to be part of a war he views as illegal and immoral. He said his military training has taught him to avoid what he views as a war crime.

Navy prosecutors, however, blocked Paredes' plans to put the war on trial during the court-martial. A Navy officer reviewing Paredes' request for conscientious objector status has also recommended that it be denied.

Defense attorney Jeremy Warren said Paredes passed up deals that would have minimized his punishment in exchange for a guilty plea.

"He's not backing down from what he did or why he did it," Warren said.

12/26 2002: INS & FBI Harassed and Jailed Foreign Students!

News and stories

1) Foreign Students Jailed in Colorado (Associated Press)
2) FBI Seeks Data on Foreign Students (Washington Post, USA)
3) Background Information: International Students in the United States

The bogus USA Patriot Act design to find scapegoats for their own failure and to blame the "foreigners" are the caused of all problems. It's been well know that INS had arrested and harassed thousands of Arab/Iranian/Middle Eastern/north African immigrants in the US, but also had been harassed and arrested hundreds of foreign students in US.

Just yesterday, INS admitted they had arrested at least six Middle Eastern students studying in Colorado for minor "student visa violations," for not taking enough classes required by student visa!

According from US Immigration and Neutralization Services (INS), US foreign visa college students need to at least enrolls in 12 quarter-units for undergraduate programs or 8 quarter-units in graduate programs.

The INS & FBI harassed against foreign students had been not very publicized but it will be became a serious issue, since foreign students has less legal and social support networks then immigrants. Foreign students have no rights to work and not eligible for any government benefits, nor due process of law in immigrant cases--although they are paying 200-300% more fees then American students.

For those who are not familiar with US education system, depends on the school, if they runs quarter system (11 weeks per quarter), generally 4 quarter-units for one class, for more information check:

12/19 02: 500 Detained by INS, Thousands Protested in LA!

12/19: Thousands came for Protests INS detaining at Westwood Federal Building, Los Angeles

from Los Angeles Independent Media Center
500 Plus So-Cal Residents Detained Without Warning

UPDATE: Civil Rights Groups are suing the Justice Department to stop further detentions. -- Photographs from Saturday's Rally at the Westwood Federal Building. -- An article from the SF Chronicle reports on the INS statement that all but 20 of the detainees had been released by Friday. -- Earlier in the week, a report came onto the newswire regarding releases as well.

STORY: Arab, Iranian, and Northern African residents throughout the United States went to INS offices earlier in the week for a re-registration program mandated by the INS. About 1/4 of them were then detained. Since these residents went down to the INS offices voluntarily, the detentions came as a shock to their families and the wider community. Upwards of 500 Southern Californians, (young and old, followers of differing religions), were detained. As of Wednesday night, many still remain locked away. It's fair to assume that others in similar situations are also detained throughout the country.

REACTION: On Wednesday afternoon there was a massive protest at the Westwood Federal building, organized in large part by local Iranian radio stations. Several thousand people came out to support immigrant rights and condemn the INS' recent practices. Here are 19 PHOTOGRAPHS from Wednesday's demonstration. Read an on-the-scene report from the protest. Listen to moving testimony on the detention of Iranian immigrants, posted on the newswire, previously aired on one of the AM radio stations that helped organize the rally. An attorney at the Arab American Anti-Discrimination Committee is interviewed here on MP3 on Flashpoints radio.

STATEMENTS & ANALYSIS & ACTIONS: The American Immigration Lawyers Association has posted to the wire asking for help in gathering detainee's stories. The Muslim Public Affairs Council held a conference this Saturday in Long Beach where the Patriot Act was of main concern. The Alliance of Iranian Americans has released statement addressed to the INS on the situation. They state that they are raising legal defense funds for the detainees. Here's a statement from the Irvine-based website of the Green Party of Iran. The ACLU posted an analysis of the situation and a discussion about the possibility for further detentions. And though the gravity of the situation requires that it not be explained away by incompetence, here is a link demonstrating the INS' propensity to misplace paperwork.

ON THE HORIZON: January 10 begins a new round of registration involving non-US citizens from a new list of countries. The Pakistani Embassy in DC has asked for comments from the Pakistani Community living in the US on how to deal with the present situation.

Narco News Bulletin features reports on major breaking news, as well as penetrating analysis: check out the article "Toward Drug Legalization", as well as two critiques (1, 2) of Plan Colombia by Ron Jacobs (1, 2). The web-magazine Counterpunch often features poignant commentaries on Colombia; here are six recent examples: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. Detroit-based Labor Notes has reported on, and regularly comments upon, (1, 2, 3, 4) the oppresion, and murder, of Colombian labor leaders. Los Angeles based From the Wilderness also offers regular commentaries and investigative features (1, 2, 3, 4) on the US role in Colombia. NACLA is an excellent source for well-researched academic-type analysis of Colombia, and their latest magazine features an in-depth analysis of the role of drugs in Colombian society and its economy. And finally, the Center for International Policy's Colombia Project's web-page is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in investigating US policy in Colombia, and it also provides regular updates and analysis of the conflicts in Colombia.

Colombia Human Rights Network is an excellent resource for information about Colombia, and about activism supporting the struggles for Human Rights and democracy there. The Colombia Support Network similarly provides updates as well as information about how to get involved in the solidarity movement with the people of Colombia.

Support for Cindy Grows, Opposition to the War Expands

In a way that rarely happens, the action of one woman has touched the hearts of people in every corner of the country, moving many to take some action themselves. Since August 6, Cindy Sheehan has been camping outside the Bush ranch in Crawford, Texas. Her straightforward request for a meeting with the president has been met with the same arrogance this administration has shown most of the world. But while her call for an end to the U.S. war and occupation in Iraq is being ignored by the president, it is resonating with people from all walks of life.
Read More>>

The encampment in Crawford will continue until Bush meets with this mother whose son was killed fighting in a war that never should have happened, or Bush leaves his vacation home and returns to Washington, D.C. United for Peace and Justice urges you to join this effort by taking action in your own community. As strong as the presence is in Crawford, the power of our movement rests in what each of us does in our own home towns. This national movement to end the war in Iraq must be as visible and as determined as Cindy Sheehan.

LOCAL ACTIONS NATIONWIDE UFPJ calls on supporters of peace and justice in every corner of the country, in communities large and small, to organize local protests against the war on Saturday, March 19. On the first anniversary of the war, at least 319 cities and towns across the United States organized protests. This year there is the potential to organize even more demonstrations, and to bring more people than ever out into the streets.

MAJOR REGIONAL PROTEST IN FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. UFPJ is also supporting a major regional demonstration in Fayetteville, North Carolina. We hope those of you within driving distance of Fayetteville will make this action your priority. Fayetteville is home to Fort Bragg - ground zero for the 82nd Airborne Division and many of the Army's elite units. It is also home to a growing base of anti-war activists and organizations: military folks, veterans, families of active-duty soldiers and veterans, students, workers, housewives, clergy, educators, all are part of a vibrant, and growing, statewide network. For details on the protest, visit the website of the North Carolina Peace & Justice Coalition, one of the groups spearheading the event. | More »

News Summary
Antiwar Protests | Military Situation
| Cost of the War

From Goshen, Ind., grannies collecting relief kits to a "die-in" on an Ivy League campus, Americans took to the streets Tuesday in mostly small, low-key events to protest a possible war on Iraq. More than 100 people were arrested.

Yet, the Bush and Military still playing their War Drums, desperately looking for War, according from the latest calculations, Experts, including Senator Joseph Biden, Chair of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, indicate that the war may cost as much as $80-$100 billion. In the worst case, a war with Iraq could cost the United States nearly $2 trillion, almost as much as the government spent in the last budget year - according to new projections.

While United Nations' inspections in Iraq is still going on, and the oil-for-food programme still rolling. US and UK Continue accusing Iraq human rights abuse for the justification for the war, while double standards on Iraq's neighboring countries' human rights issues. Even worse, sleeping with the same bad, corporate media are manufacturing hoax and bias to support and cheerleading upcoming war in Iraq.

F15 2003: Millions March Worldwide To Denounce Bush's War Plans!

Feb 15: Over One Million in Hyde Park, London

Feb 15, the day after Valentines Day, the world witnessed an unprecedented and truly massive outpouring of love in cities all over the world. I speak, of course, about the peace demonstrations that took place globally.

It was I've now read in various sources the single largest day of protest in world history. How many people does it take to set a record like that? Estimates are that between 8 to 11.5 million people took to the streets in peace to demonstrate against the United States going to war against Iraq.

Our sheer numbers are now changing the debate. We have assumed our rightful position as citizens who demand that our leaders lead with morality, equanimity and peace. Make no mistake about it: we are changing the world right now by embracing peace and we will continue to shape future political debate by continuing to embrace peace.
