NYC human rights advocates protest the April 12th concert of Israeli army booster Idan Raichel at the Beacon Theatre and call for cultural institutions to distance themselves from events that whitewash Israel's violations of Palestinian rights.

Fast Track, TPP and TTIP Should Be Scrapped! - by Thilo Bode
How scandalous that communities and states should lose sovereignty to corporations! In the TTIP negotiated in secret, corporations can sue states for lost profits. The threat of a lawsuit can have a chilling effect on labor and environmental protective regulations. A parallel private arbitration system (ISDS) is created that privileges foreign investors over labor and the environment. Philip Morris, Violea, Vattenfall, Occidental, Pacific Rim and Metalclad are flagrant examples of profit ...

Initiate a World Peace Conference - To Mikhail Gorbachev - by World Beyond War
We ask you to initiate a world peace conference for the international coordination of nonviolent resistance to highly dangerous U.S. and NATO actions in Eastern Europe, Ukraine, and elsewhere. Such a conference should seek an end to the practices of bombing, of murdering by drone-warfare, and of deploying troops anywhere in the world. There must be an end to the destabilization of entire countries for the purpose of controlling them. Legal standards must no longer be set aside by arbitrary in...
