2013: A Nasty Year Heavy With New Anti-Homeless Laws - by Robert Norse
Some years back, I collected and condensed a bunch of the Santa Cruz conduct ordinances which especially impacted homeless people, street people, performers, and political activists. The last version can be found at https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2010/08/29/18657087.php under the heading "Deadly Downtown Ordinances - Updated". That version got some updating in the comments that follow this older posting, but some enterprising person has to make suitable modifications & additions given t...

Animal Rights 101: Liberating, Not Eliminating, the Nonhuman World - by Carter Dillard
The eradication of the nonhuman world hardly registers on the animal rights radar, and it should. The short movie the Meatrix plays upon the idea of going back to the basics, a sort of “Animal Rights 101.” The film shows Leo the pig learning that the bucolic family farm he believed existed was hiding the sickening reality of the factory farm where Leo really lived. When Leo backs out of the illusion the lesson becomes clear: people who care about animals should treat them well, both direc...

Their rights to speech - by Ted Rudow III, MA
Ukraine was governed by probably the most financially corrupt regime in the history of the world, which by the end of its rule was not only physically oppressing, but finally killing its citizens as they attempted to exert pressure by way of exercising their rights to speech and assembly. An entirely unprovoked Russian military intervention on part of Ukrainian territory.

Trade: Time for a New Vision, 20pp - by Alternative Trade Mandate
50 civil society organizations crafted the Alternative Trade Mandate in January 2014. States should have the right to resist financial deregulation, risky financial products, genetically modified corn and salmon and chlorinated chicken. The Investor-State Settlement mechanism in the TTIP gives corporations the same status as nation states, undermines sovereignty and allows corporations to have rights without responsibilities or liabilities.

YOU CANNOT DIE IN HELL: Using Indefinite Detention for Political and Religious Purposes - by William Wraithwrite
Once you are born a creature (and irrespective of your personal circumstances which can vary greatly) that is as you were forced into existence (not by any choice on your part but according to European religious dogma originating in the Middle East) not just for a lifetime on earth but also forever after by some notion of an immortal soul, so then you are also forced into an immortality (almost like a vampire who too can never truly die in literature) and irrespective of however terrifying su...

Until Republicans Stop Hating the Safety Net, Poverty Will Continue to Grow - by Bill Berkowitz
January 8 marked the 50th Anniversary of the beginning of President Lyndon B. Johnson’s War on Poverty. What usually happens with anniversaries of this magnitude—i.e. this past summer’s 50th anniversary of the March on Washington—is that it is recognized and discussed for a media minute before other issues reclaim the nation’s attention.

After all these years, the Joint Base Lewis McChord Force Protection Division is still around and still spying on us.
