2008/12/11: Support The Nadler Initiative Against The Planned Bush Blanket Pardons

Ask Your House Member To Co-Sponsor H.Res. 1531 Against The Bush Preemptive Pardons

Another day, another non-denial denial that Bush is planning midnight preemptive blanket pardons for his entire gang, including himself. In an article in the New York Times the other day, current attorney general Mukasey is quoted as asserting it would not be "necessary". Please take careful note he did not say it wouldn't happen, because unless we speak out now it WILL.

The best shot we have is H.Res. 1531 which puts the administration on clear notice that there will be strong push back from Congress if they attempt such a scurrilous stunt. Please submit this action page to ask your House member to sign on as a co-sponsor of this measure.

2008/11/18: 'Free Gaza' to Aid Agencies: "Deliver it by Sea!"

The Free Gaza Movement today issued this open letter to all organizations delivering humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip

Israel's closure of its land borders with Gaza and Egypt's similar measures on the Rafah border are a
humanitarian disaster for 1.5 million Palestinians. The United Nations announced last Thursday that inside Gaza it had run out of the food essentials to supply 750,000 desperately needy citizens. "This has become a blockade against the United Nations itself," a spokesman said.
